didn't notice ruins were the obelisk pile until it was empty.

Whoa, I didn't even realize that could happen.

I just won a game where my opponent played very well but I got lucky. Despite that, they resigned at a reasonable time and wrote gg. Very well mannered. I tried to write gg back and then quit, but hit the wrong key and wrote bb instead and only noticed it after I had already quit.

And now I feel bad.

I had $6 and 2 buys and tried to stonemason for destriers when they cost 4, then realized that the second one would cost 3, so I gained a cavalry instead, drawing a copper, which allowed me to buy 2 more destriers :)

Just had a game with Familiar, Flag Bearer and Werewolf, no trashing, no villages, so a proper junkfest.

I have the flag, after a fairly hard battle, and am 4vp in the lead, just need to pile out 4 estates for a win (the set has pawn so some +buy).

My opponent plays Werewolf as a night, hit's Locusts. Trashes a Curse for me. Sweet.

Next turn, I play a Werewolf as a night, hit War, and it trashes one of my opponents flag bearers, giving him the flag.

With his 6 card hand, he plays a Werewolf as an action, and just hits a Province... he won by 1 vp.

Lord Rattington's trashing choices leave something to be desired. Final decks:

dagron:
10 Coppers, an Estate, a Duchy, 10 Goons, 10 Worker's Villages, 6 Chariot Races, 5 Imps, 3 Recruiters and 5 Covens

Lord Rattington:
9 Curses and a Junk Dealer

Admittedly the bot junked a lot of stuff it shouldn't have (it always does with Junk Dealer), but my guess is that those Curses only came out of Exile near the end of the game.

Random bot game which ended with me having more provinces in my deck than non-province cards at the end.

(A game with Counterfeit, Apprentice, and Border village where over the last 2 turns I cannibalized all my engine components and buying power to get to the last few provinces.)

I've had this happen once in a real game with 3 total players. The other players weren't great, but it was still interesting. I don't remember the entire kingdom, but it at least had Forge, Magpie, Remodel, Raze, Settlers, and Worker's Village. I mainly got a bunch of Magpies and used Forge to turn them into provinces. My final deck was Remodel, Settlers, Duchy, and 4 Provinces (I think I remodeled Forge into Province on my last turn).

I had an IRL game with Capitalism, Bandit, Treasurer, Grand Market and Forager. Things hit the fan pretty quick. One time, a Grand Market of mine fell to an enemy Bandit, but I scooped it back up with Treasurer only after playing Forager. I remember having a turn where I bought half the Colony pile, which might have been because I won the GM split 8-2. That was a fun game.

Counting House is the best card in the game. Change my mind.

I had a fun game where scepter + improve was my entire payload. I played 7 scepters on improve, bought two provinces, then gained 8 duchies on the final turn.

I kept playing my Horses using Way of the Horse because it was funny, and then I noticed that the Horse art actually started changing in my starting hands.

Trying to see how beggar/tower does, I've gained beggar, settlers, displace (obelisk), mastermind, and a bunch of coppers. Lord Voldebot hexes me with war.

I had a game where Necro was actually useful. We had Pillage (before the errata - you could attack without trashing it), and every single turn you'd be playing without the best card in your hand. I lost :(

Even before the errata, trashing Pillage was not optional. The errata only makes the attack and the Spoils gain dependent on the trashing, but in any version you have to trash Pillage when play it.

Yeah, but using something like Necromancer would actually get you the benefits of the old Pillage--since the attack and Spoils weren't dependent on the trashing, you could get the attack and Spoils by using Necromancer on a Pillage in the trash.

Yes, you're right. I'm realizing now that the original post talks about Necromancer.

Note sure if this belongs better in the bragging thread, but I just returned 2 estates to the supply to activate wild hunt.

my opponent opened Swindler, and only managed to play it three times due to bad shuffle luck.

moreover, all three of those times, it hit an estate.

moreover, on two of those three occasions, I had a sheepdog in hand.

The bat is always available (not part of the reserve). You found the vampire alone with the black market, but you can and you should exchange it with the bat.
