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

The Tunnel answer is absolutely correct, but it does not even require Bandit Fort. There is just one Gold left for a three-pile ending.

If Sea Hag has to be the last thing to resolve before the win, then I don't really see another solution. If not, then there are tons - Swindler, Chariot Race, but also just discarding the opponent's Village to cause a dud for them.

Depending on what "for a win" means, you could even say that you played Sea Hag, you saw that it flipped over the opponent's only Gold, and that made you sure you could safely break PPR this turn to win on the next.

What is the only non-Potion-costing Supply card that you can never Duplicate?

Simple.

Sir Martin.

You can theoretically copy anything else given you play enough highways.

Well, technically you can't Duplicate any Knight, but that's now what I was going for.

So there's another answer?

You cannot duplicate the Duplicate card itself, if you're trying some loaded question.

With Innovation, you now can! Gain Duplicate, using Innovation to play it, then call it to gain another Duplicate.

In a game without

Bridge, Bridge Troll, Highway, Inventor, Ferry, Canal, Quarry, Tournament

have a card set aside with Prince that costs more than $4.

Use Innovation to play Prince during your Buy phase. Set aside Peddler.

That's the point. For example, Baron is a 4-cost card. So he is inheritable. In other words, he has a child. Overlord is a great guy, but he has no child.

So this was meant to be a wordplay puzzle to figure out what "no child" meant; with the answer being "cannot be chosen for Inheritance"? And you're giving up and giving the answer here?

Or... was the puzzle to list all cards that cannot be chosen for Inheritance, and it was just worded in a cryptic way?

I don't know for sure whether any of the ladies on Harem has achild, but I know for sure none of those is going to inherit anything.

I think it would have been clearer if you had asked something along the lines of "How do you know Overlord has no child?".

But the gold gain isn't mandatory, so probably opponent wouldn't do it if they're loosing

I bought Innovation. I bought and gained Province. My opponent trashed Fool's Gold. Instead of buying and gaining Estate, I bought and gained Sea Hag to discard his Gold.

Or, this is a 4-player game. My right player will win if I do nothing. So I discarded my left player's Patron to let her buy the last Province to make her and myself tie-winners.

How many ways can you get Citadel and Innovation to activate for the same card?

EDIT: The trivial answer is, don't play any Actions and buy a card.  There are more interesting ones!

Trivial cases of not buying but gaining an action: Horn of Plenty, Idol, Devil's Workshop, Exorcist, any Event that gains an Action etc.

More interesting cases (that happen before your buy phase): Cobbler, Lost in the Woods into Swamp's or Earth's Gift, Ratcatcher or Cathedral trashing Catacombs (or Hunting Grounds with Inherited Estates).

I think you can also play Changeling to gain a duration card that was played last turn.

Lost in the Woods into Swamp's or Earth's Gift

You can also do this with Blessed Village, which is the one I thought of!

So, all the kingdom has is 10 piles, all of which are pure actions. I have no gainers in my deck whatsoever and Deluded. Still in the end of this very turn, I return Deluded and still buy one of the cards from the supply of these 10 piles. Which card is it and how?

You play something with +buy and money, Alms a Catapult, revealing Rocks, Advance something in your hand for Villa, and then you buy Rocks with your money.

Not sure this breaks the "pure actions" part of the pile rules...

That's good! I had a solution not involving any events and Villa though :)

Hmm, then there's another way: Swindle an opponent's Estate into an Encampment then buy the resulting Plunder.

Or ambassador some Rocks after putting some catapults there in a previous turn.

There's probably more but this should be enough.

Well that makes it harder...Masquerade a hand of 5 workshops to gain the last encampment? Catapult isn't allowed because it's an Attack.

There's also trashing Catacombs but it's technically a gainer...

If these don't work then I got nothing else.
