Highest possible score?

Given the following rules:
  • every extension allowed
  • one of each: -way -event -project -landmark

you can build any kingdom you want and your opponent is LRattington.

What could be the highest possible score? I just reached 2027VP but it was far away from perfect. engine got stuck and lord could end the game way to early. did not have banish in my kingdom.

  • Torturer to take Lord out of the game
  • Groundskeeper and Goons for VP
  • Bridge
  • Kings Court
  • Gardens?
  • Ambassador - "refill" greens and buy them again
  • Worker Village
  • Nobles
  • Vineyard
  • Way of Monkey - transform Actions into Buys
  • Banish to exile greens, money, curses OR Donate to get fast to a deck where you can play 3 Torturers to take Lord out
  • Tower OR Palace
  • Citadel
  • Colony


  • get fast to the point where you can play 3 torturers every turn
  • buy all goons
  • buy all kings court
  • buy all groundskeeper
  • get all the rest. even copper and courses. banish all unwanted cards
  • put back some estates with ambassador and buy again

You can get infinite with monument and either the cutpurse pin or the bureaucrat pin. The game has plenty of infinite loops too, so that's another way.

Bishop/Fortress where neither player buys anything on their turns will give you unlimited points.

You can even generate infinite VP off Ambassador/Grand castle/Champion. Return the Grand castle every turn (it stays in the pile due to Champion) and then buy it back for more VP. Similarly Graverobber/Cost reduction/trashing makes this work as many times as the game lasts.

Or regain Emporium from the trash. That's quite fun if the board can do it.

Add some more restrictions that eliminate infinite loops and infinite points, and then you have a better challenge.
