Possession as a one-shot Event

Would Possession work as an Event you can only buy once per game? I'm imagining this version would also have you possess every other player instead of just the one to your left, which would get rid of the political problems the card has now. I feel like this would solve a lot of Possession's problems, though maybe not all. One potential problem is that while it wouldn't discourage building a good deck as much as it does now, it might still discourage megaturns, since your opponent could win by grabbing your megaturn from you at just the right moment. That would require some skill, though, so it might add interesting strategy.

What would be a good cost for this?

I don't think this is a good idea. This will be "auto-buy" thing. You almost always buy, don't you? Possession is good because you have a choice (although I hate Possession). And it will be too swingy. Sometimes I have no Treasures in hand, sometimes 5 Golds.

I think $6 is proper. Like Fleet.

It would be an "auto-buy" in the same way that some Projects are "auto-buys". The strategy is all in when you buy it. It's strategic here in particular, because its effect only happens once, at a point in the game that can vary. As for swinginess, in most games there's at least some way to guess how good your opponent's hand is. You wouldn't just buy this the first chance you can afford it. It's like Donate; you have to wait for the right moment.
