new puzzle, it's pretty easy:

you play a counting house. There are multiple coppers in your discard pile. You pick up some, but not all, of those coppers. picking up the number of coppers you did, is, in this case, your best move. Why?

I had totally forgotten that CH lets you choose how many Copper to pick up.  Androminion just puts all the Copper into your hand.  Does Goko let you pick?  Did iso?

If you're going to trash you hand and want coppers why did you pick up any? poorhouse with trashing works though.

Mountebank? And maybe you need to keep 1 for Fairgrounds so you just take everything minus 1.

The bigger question is why in the world are you using the "trash your hand" option in a Garden deck???

That was a bad example, Fairgrounds is probably better, but Poor House and limited trashing is the obvious best answer.

You have 2 Philosopher's stones in hand. You have 4 copper's in discard, and 23 total cards in discard/draw. Taking the 4th copper will net you less $.

that also works. So the answers so far:

-poor house
-count+fairgrounds
-P-stone
-loan

And my initial idea, which was:

-a draw to X card. let's say you have in hand, Necropolis, counting house, watchtower, gold, silver. Your discard pile has 2 coppers. You want to buy a province. You've been tracking your deck and know that the only money left is silver. If you pick up one copper, you need to draw one silver in 3 cards. If you pick up two, you need 1 silver in 2 cards. If you pick up none, you need 2 silver in 4 cards. Picking up exactly one copper gives you the best chance of buying a province.

That was a lot more convulted than I thought it would be. Your solutions are simpler :P

Um... why wouldn't you do Necropolis - Watchtower - Counting House?

because... that's not the point. Nowhere in the puzzle does it say you have played well before this point, it just says that you have just played counting house.

But... your solution is only "valid" because you say it gives you "the best chance of buying a province."  And... it doesn't :P

But misclicks happen, and you've got to know what to do when you accidentally played Counting House too early.

OK - a new easy puzzle.

You have two treasures in play that add up to $7 and one of them isn't a Platinum. What are they? Oh and the other one isn't a Platinum either.

Philosopher's Stone or Diadem + anything. Also, depending on how you interpret Counterfeit and the puzzle, it could be Counterfeit and Gold for a very short period of time.

Yeah, that all works. Easy Puzzles!

OK another one:

You're playing a game with no cards which offer +2 actions, no throne room/king's court or golem or tactician. Yet you manage to play 2 Goons in the same turn. How?

That is in fact one of the answers I had in mind. But there's also another one!

Well, if Crossroads is one of the answers (and Outpost isn't), Hamlet?
It doesn't always give +2 Actions.

Outpost turns are a different turn. Hamlet (and ironmonger and maybe others) I still count as offer two actions. It gives one and then an option for a second. Though this could be just semantics. I suppose the crossroads answer could be semantics too since it has to give +2 actions to give + 3 actions. But the other answer I have in mind doesn't play that sort of word game.

Also, even if you didn't count outpost turns, you'd still have to play outpost and goons together and you might as well just play two goons in that case. So outpost can't help.

I assume Tribute falls in the same category?

And you didn't mention Procession, so Procession-Procession-Goons-Goons. :)

Yep you got it. That answer plays an entirely different sort of word game.

OK so one more and I'm going to bed. Now the supply doesn't contain any of the cards prohibited from the previous question or crossroads or procession. But you can still play two goons in one turn. How?
