You have only 3 cards, which are in your hand. No token, no Duration. Your opponent has 7 Provinces, 8 Duchies, 8 Estates. Win in this turn.

Hard: No Events, no card in trash.
Lunatic: No Villa
Phantasm: 2 cards
No landmarks, presumably? Wall/Wolf Den/Bandit Fort could give your opponent a negative score despite all their green.

Up to 2 Landmarks if you need. I assume that your opponent has the least negative score (like no Silver/Gold, 2 Platinum).
I assume it has to be my turn? Otherwise I can do it with one card in my deck: Possession.

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.

What is the shortest name in Dominion? For example, "Curse" has five letters. Abandoned Mine has the shortest text.

There are a couple of three-letter things (Tax, Bat, Spy, Imp...) which seem obvious, so I assume the answer to this should be something with 1 or 2 letters. I can't think of any 2-letter named thing though... Ox seems like something that might one day be a Dominion card.

Well, there is only one name in "Dominion" so the answer must be Dominion.

Inn seems like the shortest, simplest name.

I didn't say "in English". The shortest name is "塔"(Tower) in Japanese. A single letter. We read it "tɔː".

What I've gathered looking into it a bit further is that you have a syllabary that is composed of syballograms, and each syballogram acts as written representation of a mora.

Here's a pretty easy one, with at least two different solutions:

Using only the five cards in my starting hand (i.e. no Duration effects or Reserves), I manage to buy a Province and a Duchy, as well as Curse my opponent four times.  How?

EDIT: 4-card solution: KC, Mountebank, Royal Carriage, Capital.

Replace a Capital with Fortune and you can get Colony + Duchy even.

You can't Replace Capital with Fortune because of the debt cost

I would say that you are using the Villas, and thus violate the condition that you should be "only using the five cards in your starting hand". Otherwise you could probably do all kinds of craziness with Fortress/Upgrade/Upgrade opening.

I have another easy one. Although the Curse tile is empty I play a Sea Hag for a win. Why? Hint: It has absolutely nothing to do with Peddler, Leprechaun, Library or any other Action card interaction.

Well, i’d say you discard opponent’s tunnel and they accidentally take a gold with Bandit Fort, but i feel there’s another answer
