[Turn 15]
f plays a Rogue a third time.
n reveals a Copper and a Disciple.
n trashes a Disciple.
n gets 1 VP from Tomb.
n discards a Copper.

[Turn 17]
f plays a Rogue.
f gets +1 Buy (from Teacher)
n shuffles their deck.
n reveals a Peasant and a Teacher.
n trashes a Teacher.
n gets 1 VP from Tomb.
n discards a Peasant.

At least they got the Tomb points.


That reminds me when my mom would not exchange her disciples for teachers. I thought she was crazy. She also lost very badly because of it. It also drove me nuts because I couldn't exchange my fugitives for disciples.

Disciple is pretty often stronger than Teacher and it's not at all unusual in high level games to go for Disciple and not get any Teachers.

Especially if they are preventing you from getting Disciples of your own as you describe.

You have a good point but I won with all four tokens on different supply piles, so in that case I think teacher was better.

Um. Buying Peasant, upgrading it in four steps to Teacher, then putting it on your Tavern mat four times and calling it four times has to take at least 13 turns. Probably several more, unless you do a preposterously extreme trick like Summoning a Peasant then Donating your deck.

Given Big Money wins on turn 17 or so, you need to have some really strong justification for playing Teacher so many times instead of doing something that gets you VP and ends the game quicker.

It was a really slow game, and teacher is best in slow games.
