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.
OH RIGHT. That's what it was . . .

This would certainly be an interesting moment in an online game...

In the early game, buying an Estate to trash two Hovels is likely the best play you can make, to the extent that you certainly should pass Overgrown Estate and possibly Necropolis over Hovel if you can, only to prevent your opponent from doing that.

I'm pretty sure this is a joke. Masquerade alone gives you both the ability to trash OE for the +1 Card and a use for Necropolis.

It's not a joke. Getting rid of a dead card in your deck is stronger than Necropolis or a one-time +1 card.

Yeah, buying an Estate with 2 Hovels in hand is basically the same thing as buying a Laboratory. So there certainly might be better buys; but really depends on how much you have to spend on the turn that you drew both Hovels (which is very likely to be less than ).

But in order to trash both Hovels on an Estate buy after playing Masquerade, you need to forego trashing one of them on the Masquerade play! You could choose to trash a Copper instead, but then we'd be talking about a Peddler + (whatever else you would have bought) versus a Lab. If there's really nothing you want to buy for $3 or $4, it could be better, but that's hardly the power play that Awaclus initially made it sound.

You're not passing the OGE so that you can do it on your turn, you're doing it so that your opponent who might not have Masquerade in hand can't do it on theirs.

I still think I'd prefer to have two one-shot Labs than an opportunity to buy a Lab for $3. Especially early, when the extra card can potentially help me hit a key price point.

Well, in this case it's better than a Lab because Masquerade can't draw that "Lab" dead.

I just played a game where my opponent KCed a Skulk... And all 3 of the Hexes helped me. Bad Omens discarded a deck with no Coppers, Locusts hit a Fortress, and War hit a Lookout that was no longer needed.

I just had a game where I bought Travelling Fair, then Cursed Village. I chose to top deck the Cursed Village before receiving the Hex... and you can probably guess what Hex I got.

Yup, it was Locusts. I had to trash the Cursed Village I just top decked... BUT this let me gain a powered-up Miser instead, allowing me to win the game by a single point.

I emptied the Estate pile on turn 7. Game Id 16899310

T1: Copper+Copper -> buy Estate
T2: Copper*4+Cursed Gold -> Inherit Transmogrify
T3: play some Estates
T4: Inherit Cursed Gold into Bridge Troll, play Bridge Troll
>=T5: Inherit Coppers and Curse into Estates

I'm not sure what I would have done after my deck consisted of just 2 Bridge Trolls and like 1 or 2 Coppers, but doesn't matter cus opponent resigned.

Welp, I just had my first game where Miserable actually mattered; I would have tied otherwise. And it was after a string of other unlucky losses, too.

Turn 9 - SamE
S plays a Fishing Village
S plays a Treasure Hunter.
    S gains 3 Silvers.
S plays a Warrior.
    S shuffles their deck.
    S draws a Silver and a Soldier.
    O discards a Warrior.
    O trashes a Warrior.
    O discards a Soldier.
    O trashes a Soldier.

I debated playing the Treasure Hunter after the shuffle, but was pretty satisfied with my decision not to do so when I saw that trash. How often do you get to trash travellers from both lines like that?

I just for the first time ever finished (and won) a game where I never used the starting Baker token. Key cards: Lurker, Cultist, Sacrifice. Just never had a need/opportunity to spend it.
