For moments where you or another player made a very facepalm-worthy mistake.

For example, I just had a game where I for some reason thought gaining a Mystic was a good idea when I already had 3 Black Markets and had trashed all my starting Estates and Coppers.

Bought academy thinking it was guildhall, then proceed to spam buy treasures for 10 turns and use my extra buys on copper.

Here's one from a while back:

Don't try to Ritual a Peddler in an engine.

Back when Making Fun was a thing, I ran into an opponent named DONTMAKEMEPLAYTHEBASESET.

I made them play the base set.

Ouch, that sucks. I especially hate making on-gain/on-buy mistakes like this online, because I really want to ask for an undo (yes, I should have realized that would happen, but I truthfully didn't notice it), but I've already seen my next hand by the time the effect goes through.

There was one time where I accidentally called a Duplicate to gain an extra Curse when I bought a Gold because I didn't realize that my opponent had played a Swamp Hag on their turn. I really wish Shuffle iT made it way more obvious that Duration attacks like Haunted Woods and Swamp Hag were played, because I never notice them. Adding a little ant-sized icon to their VP/Villager/Coffers/Username bar really doesn't cut it.

I'm still mad that my opponent wouldn't let me take back what was obviously a mistake.

There was the time when I absent-mindedly opened remake, with shelters, poor house, no decent 2ers, and Steward on the board.

Haunted Woods and Swamp Hag put the icon into the bar of the affected players, not the player who played them. So when it's your turn and you are affected, it sits there in the central status bar.

Also with the new update, it shows you an (admittedly small) picture of the card you are gaining.

But I also often misclick, because I want to do Action X and I forget that before something else happens (like trashing for Cathedral the card you actually want to play).

This happened about 2 months ago, so it was probably before that update, and the very small icon in the central status bar is hardly noticeable (or at least it was when this mistake occurred).

I just had a classic example of failing to do basic math: I went for Masterpiece-Feodum in a game with Bandit Fort. I was thinking enough Feodum points would outweigh the Bandit Fort penalty. Then I actually did the math and realized I would need at least 7 Feodums for that to happen... which was no longer possible because my opponent was pursuing the same boneheaded strategy I was!

Fortunately in this situation you can always just trash the feodums and pivot to a new strategy.

Except that he would then lose all of the points from the Feodum and gain three more Silvers, losing at least a Province worth of points and exacerbating the situation.
