That one guy played a Mine after playing his Treasures.

They play with the old rules where trashing was not optional and he needs the Mine to activate his Conspirator but does not want to trash coppers because of Well. 
So he played the coppers, bought Villa, played Mine (with +Action token) and will now play the Villa and Conspirator to activate his mega turn.

Edit: Added Quote for clarity because my post is on a new page

As far as I can see the kingdom is cellar, workshop, woodcutter, smithy, remodel, market, moat, village, militia, mine.

That's the first edition "first game" recommended kingdom, which sort of makes sense seeing how they're playing.

Furthermore, why are there seven boxes of Dominion on the table if they're only playing base? I'm not entirely sure but I think, in the background, the red one is adventures, orange is alchemy + cornucopia, blue is seaside, yellow ones are prosperity and empires, and the gray ones are base and intrigue. That's what I can find on amazon.de at least. But then why is there also a base set on the other end of the table?

Also they forgot to add curses to the supply.

And I can't find a single moment where there's anything on the trash mat. Wait, shouldn't they have a trash pile card if it's first edition? They ARE using the first edition treasures and victory cards.

(I did not create the Trogdor the Burninator song nor am I associated with its producers in any way.  I just think it sounds cool. :P)

The video was far less strange than I expected from reading these comments. I'd say that the point of the video is to present something interesting and exciting-looking to potential players. They aren't going to know or give a crap if the people are playing it wrong. Sure, they could record a realistic game where everyone plays straight-faced the whole time. That looks fun.

However, since this is promoting a tournament, that point is kind of moot.

Snacks, drinks and a dog at the table and no sleeves. I may not be able to sleep tonight.

Huh. I routinely play Dominion with unsleeved cards, food, drink and cats. Though the cats tend to behave themselves and sit in a box lid if offered one...

That's an interesting way to play a 5p solo game ...

They can't all be the best 5p solo games

Ah, but if I play with unsleeved cards, for rules purposes does that make the card a player, or the player a card?
