good point. however, you can only power feodum once, because for you to power fairground you can't have had any silver before then. you also can't power gardens because you don't actually gain any cards net. (you trash the FG)

For Gardens, replace 3 of the Fool's Golds with Market Squares.  Good point on the Silvers though.

Easy puzzle:

What one other card belongs with these three, and why?

Rebuild, Mystic, Contraband

You might can stretch KC and Throne Room too.

Well, those make you choose a physical piece of cardboard in your hand. The previous examples make you select a card name, not a specific instance of a card.

Right, meaning you can name Black Lotus. With Throne Room you can't choose Black Lotus.

Anyway, 15 is possible with only a single action card being played.

I can get 21.
Remake, Feodum, Feodum, Watchtower, Market Square.

Remake a Feodum (Gain 3 silvers, tally 3), Gain a Storeroom Catacombs from Remake (tally: 4) than Trash it with WT to gain a Feodum (tally: 7) which you also trash to gain 3 silvers (Tally: 10).
Do this with other Feodum too. (tally: 20).
In meantime, reveal a Market Square once on any trash, for 21.

Catacombs, not Storeroom?

Nice!  I think you miscounted though -- each one gains you 6 silver, 1 Catacomb, and 1 feodum for a tally of 8, not 10 (and a grand total of 17).

But going off this idea, if you use Governor instead of Remake to get started, you can get your opponent involved too. 

You trash feodum -> gain border village -> gain/trash catacomb -> gain/trash feodum.  (gaining BV, Cat, 6 silver, Feodum), and discard 2 MS.
Opponent goes feodum -> catacomb -> feodum (gaining 6 silver, Cat, Feodum), discarding 3 MS

I think that's 22 total.

Another easy puzzle (it happened in a real game).

At one point, I had a nonzero number of cards on my Island mat, but none of them were Islands.  How is this possible?

Seems like a strange use of Band of Misfits. Was it worth losing it to take something out of your deck?

Yes, but I can't remember exactly why.  I think it was in a Minion game after the Minions were gone, and I wanted to take a Province out of my deck to reduce my handsize.

I got an easy one:

Hand contains scout,3 coppers and a card.
You play your scout and don't see any victory cards but playing still makes you buy the last province when you wouldn't have without scout.

What's the last card?

Anything that will benefit from re-arranging the top cards of your deck, really.

Heres a ___ but not ___ puzzle:
Villages but not terminals
Haggler but not Morgrim
Innovation but not Dominion
Peeta but not Gale
Really bad card ideas but not Decline of civility on Isotropic?

On a completely unrelated note, +1 if youre an f.ds golden oldie.

The same letter twice in a row, but not if alpha-characters don't show up twice in a row.

Managed to answer the riddle while adding an example of my own! ;)
