This IS possible! In a solo game, reduce your deck to absolutely... Nothing. PM me your iso. log by midnight on May 12, 2012, EST. 

Rules:
Nothing in your deck, Nothing in your discard, Nothing in your hand. Zero.
You may use Island. (this is impossible to do without Island)
Banned cards:
Native Village

Right. Oops... oh well. I thought this had been done before. Never mind

(But at that link, the solution is a dead link. Not too hard to figure out, though.)

On a tangent, has there ever been a solo challenge to win by emptying all the kingdom card piles in the fewest possible turns? Obviously it would have to end on a turn that bought at least 8 cards, but that's common enough. The trick would be to set up a kingdom with cards you could afford to buy nine or ten of and still have a working engine. It sounds fun... has it been done?

I was going to ban Chapel and Steward to make it harder, though.

Wow! Geronimoo's explosive game is amazing. I would never have guessed that the entire kingdom could be purchased that quickly!

Link fixed.  There are a bunch of links from around then that are mysteriously broken, and I thought I had tracked them all down.  Apparently not!

I was sitting at work today feeling all smug because I had found out a way to do it without using Island.
It involved Feast and Embargo shennanigans

Now I walked through the door I realised I still wouldnt be able to get rid of chapel and feel a bit stupid.

Just wanted to share that, carry on.

We need this card.

Thwarted Scheme
Action $3
+1 Card; +1 Action
At the start of Clean-up this turn, you may choose an Action card you have in play. If you discard it from play this turn, trash it.

Could of course combine the two challenges - no cards in the discard pile, hand or deck, or the supply.  :)
