I thought Burning Skull was more difficult to beat.

I could not get the bot to launch. Even after adding http://users.telnet.be to the Exceptions List, it still gave me a warning about self-signed apps running.

That would do it! Clearly I shouldn’t run your simulator before I have my morning coffee :)

So it opens Militia / Vassal. Is that the right thing to do? I played one game against it, opened Militia / Silver, and won fairly easily despite going second when the bot failed to hit $5 on Turn 3 or 4 because its opening buys collided. Obviously that won't happen every time but the choice of opening buys makes it much more likely to miss $5 on the first shuffle.

It also doesn't buy Witch. Perhaps with all those Sentries it expects to keep on top of the Curses, but I bought Witch after I'd got two Throne Rooms so that I could play Militia and Throne a Witch every turn, and it finished the game with Curses still in its deck.

The bot seemed pretty good. I opened Vassal/Poacher and played a double Sentry Vassal stack with no attacks (8-10 coins in deck total). The tendency of the bot to buy 4 Sentries makes it overbuild a bit when it's not taking curses

hmm ...
first game I opened Milita / Silver, then poacher / sentry, got a mix of actions (witch, laboratory, throne room) with little focus and beat it 25-23
second try, same opening VS his sentry /none, then sentry/poacher again to his vassal / harbringer. I got a second sentry, 3 labs and rushed gold and provinces. 33-15.

Stupid issue.  When I try to open this jnlp, it just says:

How do I run this thing?
