In which Sarah buys a duchy
« on: April 28, 2012, 04:01:45 pm »

Sarah's hand's pretty boring in this two player game: Copper, copper, copper, silver, estate. She plays her money and buys a duchy. Her score goes up. What's the most it can go up? What's the least?

My answers (no explanation under spoilers, just numbers - better answers may be possible):
Least: Sarah can lose as many as seven points by buying that duchy.
Most: Sarah can gain at least forty eight points by buying that duchy.

Most: Sarah can gain at least forty eight points by buying that duchy.
Most: Sarah has 7 Dukes, 7 Vineyards, 7 Gardens, 8 Fairgrounds, and 8 Silk Roads.  Buying the duchy and gaining a duchess from the supply will tick each of those by one.  7 * 1 + 7 * 1 + 7 * 1 + 8 * 2 + 8 * 1 + 3 = 48

Embargo can be KC'ed so most is 30 embargo tokens resulting in -27 points.

Good lateral thinking, I like it!

Why not add some Goons to the picture then?

It's a wonder what tacticians, havens, wharves, caravans do. ;)

The BVs can't pick up Silk Roads or Gardens because there is a Quarry in play.
