Treasurer + Secret Cave + Capitalism can completely empty the Wish pile in one buy phase by trashing the lamp and recovering it from the trash over and over.

Had a Moneylender-Shelters game where Ambassador got skipped. Was the right move on both sides.

One of those extremely dumb games against Lord Rattington where I'm messing around trying to make something vaguely interesting happen and realize I'm actually losing badly to straight BM. But then manage to turn it around like a barge after 33 turns for the win.

I'm counting 37 points for both of you. Did Lord Rattingdon end the game? Seems unlikely given the state of his deck and the Provice pile being empty. Were you just so happy with the tie that you mistook it for a win or am I missing something?

I played a game with Pirate Ship, went for a Platinum big money strategy, and ended with a curse, 5 coppers, 5 estates, 2 duchies, 4 provinces, 5 colonies, a Platinum, and a Black Market. I tied at the ridiculous score of 84, with both Colonies and Provinces empty. I only could have bought a Colony with perfect luck (cost reduction from Canal). My opponents Pirate Ships were worth $10.

I'm confused as to how this would work.  I can see using a treasurer for either trashing or gaining the lamp, but not both. And what does secret cave have to do with any of this? That's about discarding cards for coins next turn?

My opponent played a Skirmisher followed by a Jester. The Jester revealed another Jester, and they chose to gain it, triggering Skirmisher's discard attack

I used broker to trash 2 provinces (first for favors, second for buys Marijuana affects the memory) and then 3 piled estates/guardians/border guards in a plateau shepherds game.  I think I either got 10 or 11 of them on the last (2) turns as I had another source of a buy somewhere.

I think it was over 2 turns not one.  But the ability to gain a bunch of favors is still nice.

Broker can't get you buys, though. (Cards, Actions, $, or favors)

ETA: I think it was also over 2 turns not 1.

hmm  maybe i just had a lot of buys.  Or maybe I just smoke entirely too much weed.   I wish we could go back and pull old games without requiring the foresight of saving the game #.   Maybe I had a gainer that I am not remembering.  Actually, now that I think about it I think I did the gains the last 2 turns with a bunch of buys, and stacking a bunch of the guardians with the second last turn.

Lord Rattington trashed a Province. They didn't win.

Had 5$ in my first hand, and I opened ... Chapel. For more context Trappers' Lodge (the topdecking ally) was on the board, so I could immediately trash 3 Estates (2 was guaranteed). Still felt a bit uninspiring.

My opponent bought Royal Seal. I was surprised by this.

... Surprised because I hadn't even noticed it was in the kingdom, and this was late in the game. Yes, my brain is so used to ignoring this card that it no longer consciously registers its presence.

I gained Cemetery with Groom, trashed Haunted Mirror to gain a Ghost, which I topdecked with Trapper's Lodge so that I could draw it. But then I realized that my only remaining Action card was the Sycophant that I had discarded to gain Ghost, so I had to Save it.

J plays a Groom.
J gains a Cemetery.
J trashes a Copper, a Cemetery, and a Haunted Mirror.
J discards a Sycophant.
J gains a Ghost.
J spends 1 Favor. J topdecks a Ghost with Trappers' Lodge.
J draws a Ghost. [with the draw from Groom] J gets +1 Action.
J plays a Silver. (+$2)
J buys a Save. J gets +1 Buy. J sets a Ghost aside with Save.

I had two Monkeys in play. My opponent played Swap twice, each time gaining a Treasure Map. They then played Treasure Map to gain 4 Golds! Just that sequence let me draw 12 cards. There were other gains on that turn, and I ended up drawing my entire deck on their turn!

Just played a game where I managed to get all ten Grand Markets. (My opponent seemed to be unaware of how strong Lurker is in combination with it.)

Ha, nice. Tactician as Monkey, Gold-Silver-Scepter, replay Tactician, this time as itself.

My deck had $22 in economy and I needed a couple more to be able to win with the last 3 provinces come my turn. My opponent used Captain to play Noble Brigand, revealing my Patron and some other action to net me a copper and a coffer.  ty for the generous donation

I had a Monkey in play. My opponent played Urchin. I discarded to four. They played another Urchin, and chose to trash the first Urchin for a Mercenary. Since they gained a card, I drew a card, giving me five cards, then the second Urchin was played, and I had to discard back down to four

I call this the Donald Trump Turn.  And much like the orange one you don't see all the razing that occurred behind the scenes to happen.
