My Fifth Solo Challenge: The Drunk Alchemists

And here is Alchemy…
You are an Alchemist. With your incredible knowledge of Potions, you can do most anything. You own not only one, but 2 Apothecary shops. Down in your cellar, you have Scrying Pools be the hundreds. You have even been sucessful in Possessing someone and gaining a Gold from it! What else could you want!?! After paying some Copper to an Herbalist one day, you get to thinking, "In my life, I have accomplished many actions. How can I end my life with Victory?" You decide on some land. Vineyards to be prescice, for all you have so many Actions. And they only cost a Potion! That should not be a problem.
Challenge: In a solo game, in the fewest amount of turns possible, get the most VP using only Vineyards. Rules:
You may only use cards from Alchemy.
No deadline for this one.

Bonus Point:
No Scrying Pool.
Also, if you would be so kind, when you PM me your Iso. log, please fill out the subject using this format: The Drunk Alchemists submission: __ turns. Thanks.

So what is the challenge here... fewest turns to get how many points?  Max points = 240?  (90 action cards / 3 * 8 vineyards?)

I support funsockets.... taking as much time as they need to get it right.

Fewest turns to get the most points possible. Turns are the tiebraker.

Too. Many. Solo. Challenges.

Not that they aren't all fun, but there are just too many to get a decent number of submissions. I think people need to slow down a bit, considering there are now 5 deadline and 3 non-deadline solo challenges active. Also, not to knock Morgrim7, but I think it's not a good idea to have two solo challenges that you started active at once.

Nope. They do not count.

I apologize for any inconvenience this solo challenge may have caused you. I see your point, but gee, thanks for the vote of confidence.

Oh, I really need to start reading things more carefully before posting corrections.

I really mean no offense. The last few days have had 3 solo challenge deadlines pass with zero entries. As someone who enjoys the solo challenges, it's just no fun to have zero or one submission - the point is to get at least a few submissions, so that there is some competition. And I really think that having so many solo challenges is driving down the interest.

I definitely don't mean to setup some sort of rules of who can post solo challenges and when. I just enjoy them and want to see them thrive!
