Yesterday evening I played the fastest BM ever (for me personally). We all know Triple Gear is nuts, but what if you add Trade?

T1-3: Gear
T4: Silver
T5-6: Trade, trashing 3 Estates and 1 Copper for 4 Silvers (in total)
T7-12: Province

6 Provinces in 12 turns :)

Not every board is a megaturn engine.

The board I played didn't have any form of +Buy or gainers, as well as weak trashing. I don't think there would have been any engine fast enough to beat Gear-Trade-BM here.

You should mention that you‘re exaggerating intentionally. Just in chase someone doesn‘t get it.

A plays a Forge.
A trashes a Mercenary.
A gains a Copper.

Had drawn my deck with only $7 in it; then I drew the copper and bought a Province.

I just ended a game with 9 Triumphal Arch points... from 3 Wishes.

It was a Witch slog game, and I couldn't activate my Lamp until one turn before the end.

Because of the Arch points?

I wish I could say I did this, but it was my opponent:

Z plays a King's Court.
Z plays a Gladiator.
Z reveals a Gold.
Z trashes a Gladiator.
Z plays a Gladiator again.
Z reveals a Gold.
Z trashes a Gladiator.
Z plays a Gladiator a third time.
Z reveals a Gold.
Z trashes a Gladiator.
Z plays a Silver, 2 Coppers and a Gold.
Z buys a Fortune.
Z takes 8 debt.
Z gains a Fortune.
Z gains a Gold.
Z repays 8 debt.

Somewhat amusingly, I actually won this game, but only because I was the first to hit the Provinces: I bought 3, then he bought 3, then I got the last 2.

We need a term for the opposite of a Golden Sombrero:

Turn 2 - xyrix
x plays 4 Coppers.
x buys and gains a Blessed Village.
x takes The Earth's Gift.
x sets The Earth's Gift aside.
x shuffles their deck.
x draws 3 Estates, a Peasant and a Blessed Village.

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.

So, I just had a (full random*) Kingdom with the following: Save, Courtyard, Haven, Native Village, and a $2 fan card that lets you save Action cards for later.  There were also 5 non-hybrid Victory cards (as well as Triumph and Basilica).

*-With all sets and some fan cards, but 12 Kingdom cards (and 2 Events and up to 2 Landmarks) and a special rule for Potion-cost cards (if there are fewer than 3 Potion-cost cards, roll them over to the next Kingdom and replace them).

Thanks to Ambassador, I managed to buy a Province and trash TWO Hovels. There’s no way it was the best play and I knew that at the time, but when am I ever going to have a chance like that again?

Hovel doesn't have a pile to be returned to, so you can't actually transfer them using Ambassador. Masquerade would work, though.

I had that situation come up in an IRL game, where one player passed the other his Hovel (can't remember if it was me or my opponent) and then the other bought something like Great Hall to trash two Hovels.
