In a single turn, I have (in this order) played, set aside and gained the same copy of Encampment. How?

Procession on Encampment, revealing Gold each time, then trashing Encampment. Lurker to get Encampment from trash. Library, setting aside Encampment. Procession on Encampment again, revealing Gold again and trashing it again. Lurker to gain it back once more.

I think Procession loses track of the Encampment and it isn't trashed.

Why would it? If you reveal Gold, Encampment will be where Procession expects it to be.

Processioned or Discipled a Thief. You therefore gained a 5 cost action or another Thief.

Example: Crowning Capital saves 6 debts.

Counterfeitting Capital or playing Mandarin with Capital in hand means it doesn't get discarded. Therefore no debt.

End the game. You don't have to pay back any debt you pick up.

Even better: Disciple a debt card.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

On the last turn of the game you are 15 points behind your opponent. You have no actions, no money, no buys (it is already buy phase), no cards in hand. But you win in the end. How?

You trash 10 Hermits from play and don't gain any Madmen because your opponent has all of them. As a result, you get 10 VP from Tomb and another 10 from Wall.

Good one! But I have no buys which means I have bought something this turn already.

Another solution. Setup: you have already bought a Copper this turn, but haven't gained it yet. Solution: gain it. Fountain gives you 15 points and your 8 Gardens and 1 Fairgrounds give you 10.

It's technically correct. EDIT: now it's actually technically correct EDIT: scratch that, it's still not technically correct. Well, this was a real Parker Square of a solution.

True.

Okay, let's add then that you have gained no card this turn.

Because I am possessing my dad, who has played many Tortures and has $22, 2 buys. I don't have any Actions, Buys, $s, hands.

Okay, let's add then that you have gained no card this turn.

My solution was to return 1 page, 1 peasant and 1 Encampment back so the opponent loses 27 points out of his Tower :)
