K plays an Overlord.
K plays a Soothsayer.
K gains a Gold.
C gains a Curse.
C shuffles their deck.
C draws a Curse.

This was the first curse I got in the game. The only trasher was Sentry.

Your opponent messed up and should have played Overlord as Sentry.

All of the following were pulled from the Bm deck by my opponent:
Masq
Amb
Possession

Regardless of green lead, there is precisely nothing that can be done why you get Masqed and then Possessed.

This would elicit at least one "ffs" from me in the chat window, and then probably a resignation, because that would be miserable to play against.

At least they didn't pass you the Amb with Masq, then Amb all your stuff back to them with Possession .. or did they?

So they Masqed you the Ambassador and you had no way to trash it?

Effectively, yes. We had Tr/Alchemist stacks, so the turn he hit Possession I was Masqed the Amb. He then returned my trashing (Altar) which I could not gain back and then play before he would return it.

Possession desperately needs to be banned from the Bm deck.

It's already super rare on shuffle it cause there needs to be a potion card in the supply for it.

I just played a game with Magpie and Tower. We split the Magpies 5-5, but then my opponent's Warriors trashed FOUR of mine. I trashed exactly zero of his. I still managed to get a tie somehow.

I assume there was cost reduction if his Warriors were able to trash Mines.

Their happening to have $6+P to spend at the appropriate moment seems even more ridiculously unlucky than Possession merely turning up in the Black Market deck. Boggle.

Bought 3 Urchins in the first 3 turns. Got my first Mercenary on turn 14. Also had to trigger a reshuffle to get it. Played it for the first time on turn 17, but couldn't trash with it.

Opponent opens 5/2 with Giant/Chapel, I open Silver/Chapel.
After 10 turns, we each have 1 Giant, 1 Artisan and 3 villages, but they also have a Margrave and an additional village. There are 3 villages left.

Turn 11 they trash one of my villages and gets one. I get one on my turn.

Turn 12 they get the last village, for 6 total. I have 3. I now buy Wishing Wells, since I can't support more terminals.

Turn 13 they trash one of my villages, I have 2 left. I buy more Wishing Wells, for 5 total.

Turn 14 they trash one of my villages again. Time to give up.

(I reloaded this game now. For fun I played one more turn against Lord Rattington. He trashed his Province. Then he trashed my last village. Sometimes I wonder if there's something wrong with the randomizer algorithm.)

The other day I was playing a game and opened sauna/silver and ended up with 2 saunas and 3 avantos. I believe goons was a big part of it, but long story short I went the whole game only trashing one estate and one copper. It was absolutely amazing. I wasn't even mad because while I certainly didn't play perfectly, and probably got a terminal or two to clog myself up, I don't think I could ever get that unlucky again if I tried. I had to blindly play an avanto several times hoping to hit a sauna and it never happened. The only time in the entire game that I was actually able to chain my saunas and avantos together, the last 2 cards in my deck that I couldn't get to were my 2 silvers. I hate to resign games ever, but it got so out of hand so fast.

4p game... everyone, including myself went for Cutpurses.  3 players in-a-row before me each play one, leaving me with just 1 Copper, and not enough to buy anything... except for a Curse.  Or more Copper  >:(

3p game, one player went heavily on Alchemists and Potion.  He managed to play chain them for many turns in a row, but failed to one turn b/c he just missed drawing a Potion!  That slowed his engine down enough for one of us to catch up.
