Distractedly awaiting my turn, found myself with a starting hand of 7, and was like..why do I have 7?

My 59 rating opponent had Ambassadored me a Cavalry ::)

On the last turn of the game, I was down by 5 points with one Province left on the board, and after playing all my Actions, I had just $7 left to spend, between the Actions and the Treasures I had in hand.  But, I hadn't yet played any Treasures, and the kingdom had both Alms and Cavalry.  So, I bought Alms to gain a Cavalry, and one of the two cards drawn from Cavalry's on-gain effect was a Copper, letting me buy the last Province and win by 1 point

I just played a game with Mastermind, Knights, Graverobber and Chariot Race. That was a bit of a brain-mangler.

really could've used a diadem here. 

But hitting 3 populates to three pile was pretty fun too...

It's also semi-interesting that their Mastermind would come into play before the game ended.  Not sure if or how or when this could be relevant...

Had a game with Peasant line, with shelters, Way of the Owl, Hunting Lodge, Sanctuary, Sheepdog, and Paddocks - all of which combined to mean very rapid cycling.  I got my Teacher on turn *7*!  And got to first play it on turn 8

Black Cat + Replace can lead to some amusing interactions. You give your opponent a Curse when you gain a Victory card, but then they react with their Black Cat to give you a Curse too. Or, actually, their Black Cat's reaction would come first, before you give out a Curse, so if there's only one Curse left, they could end up not getting a Curse

I ended up trashing my own Knight for the first time. Sir Vander over an estate with a hermit.
No + actions (save Dame Molly n hermit) Necro's allowed any trashed knight to be played anyway so Vander lost a lot of appeal anyway and I needed some gold. Plus got a hermit too.  :P

This doesn't work though.  Found that out when ambassadoring estates.  The other player only gains a curse when it isn't your turn.  Unless it is someone else giving them Replaced Victory cards in a 3+ player game. Though you do get to play the black cat for draw in the case of ambassador.  If it's Replace they only gain a curse, not Victory Card.

Yes, and when you are playing Replace to gain a Victory card, it usually isn't your opponent's turn, so you do gain the Curse from their Black Cat.

That's not what I was saying.  What I said was this:

Player A trashes a Gold to gain a Province
Player B reacts with their Black Cat to give Player A a Curse
Player A's Replace then gives Player B a Curse

(And in a 3-player game poor Player C ends up with two Curses, one from Player A's Replace and one from Player B's Black Cat)

So the person who played Replace ends up getting cursed too.  I didn't mean it as "this is a useful interaction", but as "this is kind of a funny interaction"

Just had a game with Bandit Fort where the Silver pile almost got emptied. Wayfarer and Tomb were involved; all of the Silvers ended up in the trash.

This is what you call good clean living.  The poor guy in back-to-back games.



and then end game, can't take the last Duchy or open 3 pile.  So I take the penultimate province and hope.



 Though neither actually changed the outcome  as he didn't have the 8 coins anyway (only had 3)

In a game with Idols and Trader, and lots of +buy, both my opponent and I had trashed all of our Estates, and I'd gotten one curse, while my opponent had none.  There were two empty piles, and one (Engineer) with 4 cards left.  Near the end of my Action phase, I had 4 buys and a total of $15, with two Idols, a Trader, and the Curse I'd gotten earlier from their Idols. My last Action of that turn was to trash the Curse with my Trader.  Then I played my treasure, gave my opponent a Curse with my Idols, and bought all four Engineers, winning the game with a score of 0 to -1!  My opponent had a much stronger engine, so if I hadn't managed to end the game there, I would surely have lost. But I managed to end the game before their engine could kick off

Just played a game in which Lord Rattington used Scrap on a Province. This can sometimes be a good strategic decision, but I don't think this case was one.

I Scrapped a Colony in order to end the game once. It was the right decision.

yeah i do this all the time. Same with provinces. The use a salvager to take the last two provinces out is a favorite move of mine...
I forget who but one pf the Dominion elders played a famous game where they had to ambassador a province to win.  I don't quite remember how or why this worked.  But someone else probably will.

My opponent had tons of Black Cats, so what do I do? Gain an Estate in my Action phase with Falconer to bait them into attacking, gain a bunch of curses, and then draw into the curses, trash them with Forager and Goatherd, and then buy a Province with impunity.

Played a game with Flag Bearer and Way of the Mouse, where the card played by Mouse was Improve. It was an interesting interaction, since Improve and Flag Bearer have exactly the effect when you play them, but then at Clean-Up, you can trash the Flag Bearer for a $5 card, allowing you to take the Flag both when you gain the card and at Clean-Up after playing it

Improve is one of the few cards that would be significantly stronger if it cost more. I think it shares that property with Band of Misfits,
