I mean, once you've Ambassadored over a Curse, your opponent doesn't need to buy one.  Since they now have a few.  Unless this was a Defiled Shrine game or something?

I went for Mercenary. My opponent didn't because they were on 5/2, so to compensate they gained 7 Tunnels. I decided to stop playing Urchin + Mercenary and beat them the old fashioned way with Wharf-BM.

(The only +Action in this kingdom was the starting Necropolis. My original plan was 1 Merc + Wharf BM.)

For the longest time, dominion.games didn't work for me at work - first it wouldn't load, then it wouldn't let me log in. I randomly checked yesterday, and played a successful game against Lord Bottington. So now I have something to do when my code's compiling ... even though I don't write compiled code >_>

But they couldn't easily buy one the next turn before I could get 4 of them into their deck.  Obviously after that it's pointless.

Isn't it pretty pointless anyway? Your opponent didn't shuffle on his turn 21, so even if he had gotten a Curse on that turn, it wouldn't have entered his deck any sooner than the ones you gave him.

Not the rarest event, but obnoxiously perfect shuffle luck in a Tournament-Inheritance board, I felt compelled to apologize the moment this happened:

Turn 3
F plays a Tournament.
F draws a Copper.
F plays a Silver and 4 Coppers.
F buys an Inheritance.
F inherits a Tournament.
F draws 2 Coppers and 3 Estates.
F takes 2 VP from Baths.

Turn 4 - Formerly O
F plays an Estate.
F draws a Copper.
F plays an Estate.
F shuffles their deck.
F draws a Copper.
F plays an Estate.
F draws a Copper.
F plays 5 Coppers.

I just won a game with Triumphal Arch where I desperation-bought a 3rd Enchantress on my last turn when I had 3 Ruins -- didn't know which Ruins (yes I could have determined it, but didn't want to) -- and basically no other action cards, and viola I got 3VP to pull ahead by 1.  I had won the Ruin split 7-3.  Turns out I had 3 Survivors.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

I sympathy cringed for your opponent.  That's a real Kodak moment of salt for the bad luck shrine.

Have two princes activated. One with harbinger, one with vassal.

Used the harbinger to topdeck teacher. Used the vassal to play the teacher.

Turns out you can call the teacher immediately because it's still the start of the turn.

This is even easier with a Princed Throne Room (or Procession, although Princing Procession is a risky move; Disciple also works if you have cost reduction, and is always available with Teacher), since you just need to have it in your hand instead of on top of your deck.

My opponent's Sea Hag hit my Sea Hag twice.  There was no trashing on the board.

I didn't win that one.

You got 2 actions and a coin for , so it's like you added a villa to your deck for without spending a buy. Although you can normally do that for just , without diadem or other action cards in your hand.
