Well letís put it this way. Say we each start with three Victory cards in our deck that each cost $2 but are worth 6 VP. Are you contending that itís usually best to trash all three of those cards?

I want to say probably? I'd want to think about that, but it's pretty board dependent (isn't everything amirite).

It's an 18-VP lead you'd have to overcome. And there's only so much VP on the board. The player who didn't trash those cards could just play BM-Ultimate and crush you on all but the most ridiculous of megaturn boards.

So a long time ago I made a thread about a variant where you could simply choose to add some Provinces to your deck before the start of the game. WW ran some sims and found that each Province you add increases your chances of wining; at least for BM games. Simulators aren't going to help as much with comparing to an engine.

It seems that discussion assumed the extra provinces were taken from the supply. Is that correct? Do these conclusions still hold if you still have 8 Provinces available in the supply regardless of how many Provinces you start with?

Yeah the original post was about Provinces from the supply, though the idea of Provinces from the box was briefly discussed. Clearly Provinces from the supply is a lot stronger.
