In this game my opponent, roucoulade(weird name o.O), went for the Bishop counter to Gardens. This was, somewhat surprisingly, my first time playing against the Bishop Counter. I went for a Workshop/Gardens deck going Workshop/Gardens/Estate 3 pile. I got to the point of having only 6 Workshops and an Estate, when I paused. I could tell his deck was about to climax. I rushed to end the game, hoping for some miracle to work itself. At the last turn I was down by 3 points, he just bought a province. I said to myself "Oh THIS BETTER WORK!!!!" Used workshop to get the last workshop and bought a copper.


#1 ^_^_^_^: 35 points (6 Gardens [40 cards] and 11 Estates); 18 turns

#2 roucoulade: 32 points (26 ▼ and a Province); 17 turns

^_^_^_^ wins!
Estates, Workshops, and Gardens are all gone.

I was shocked for a second, expecting to have lost. :o I barely reached the 40card mark to end it, 3 points ahead. Then I read the confirming two letters, "gg". I hesitated, then typed gg as well. My opponent returned to the lobby.

Your opponent probably should have just gone golden deck on Turn 10 instead of going... HOP?

Lol yeah. When I saw that I went "Uhh... either this guy knows something I don't, or he miss clicked."
I question the order of getting WS and Gardens as well as Estates though. It gets a little tricky trying to guess whether my opponent will buy the last estate/Gardens and whether my deck will give me good draws or not for the decision I make in gaining one card over another.

I feel like if he had bought 1-2 more Gardens, he would've won easily though.

Yeah, I probably would've opened WS/WS over WS/Gardens, but other than that you did the strategy about optimally.  But yeah, if he doesn't start messing around trying to create an engine and doesn't acquire 6 golds, he probably wins easily.
