Lord Rattington had a 5/2 on a chapel board. He bought chapel on the 5 instead of the 2.

Just had a great Lord Rattington moment. Chapel/Mountebank board. He gets super lucky and opens 5/2. Turn 1, he plays his 5 Coppers and.... he buys a Chapel.

Another funny bit of strategic brilliance from Lord Rattington: when you play a War Chest, he consistently chooses Estate to deny

Set a new personal best:

Not shown:  Way of the Ox (to make those terminals work), Toil (for Souk), and Ride(!)

In addition to being able to gain 30 18-point Horses a turn indefinitely, Tiara topdecked all of the Horses, making it easy to draw my deck.  There was some other support, too, like Pirate.

I'm a little disappointed that I was 1 point short of 2500.  I could have gotten more points if I'd spread out my Anvil gains instead of running down the Bounty Hunters, but it was late and I didn't want to drag it on unnecessarily (clicking Ride->Topdeck->Ride->Topdeck dozens of times takes a while).

The funny thing is, when my opponent was setting up this board, she said she wasn't going to give me any combos.  But we wanted to use the new cards, and she does like Horses...

I bought a 9-Silver Masterpiece from the Black Market in a Conquest game. I had overdraw that I drew the Masterpiece with (along a bunch of Silvers) and was able to trash it with Apprentice to draw three more Silvers, and then I used a Berserker to gain another Silver and had enough money to buy two Conquests for +26 VP total.

Had an IRL 3P game today with my brother and sister-in-law that had League of Bankers, Underling, Importer, and Seaway. Importer + League of Bankers means that we had +$1 from turn 1, and using Seaway to put the +buy token on Underling meant lots of extra buys, meaning that the Underlings were bought up quite quickly. There was also Guildmaster for even more Favors. My sister-in-law and myself grabbed most of the Underlings before my brother picked up on that combo

Inspiring Conclave is funny - you effectively get to play two different Action cards from your hand that you don't have in play

Was that the right move? Dunno the Kingdom, but feels wrong to me...

I agree. This is so unusual that it is hard to be sure about, but my hunch is that building up is nearly always better than opening Provinxe.

Probably not, tbh, but I couldn't resist. Though, in the end I only lost by something like 2 or 3 points, so it didn't hurt that much

Two points ahead, only one Province left, and with less than $8 going into my buy phase. I can't remember exactly how much, but it was at least $5. I thought I would be unable to end the game, but then I realized: City-State and Butcher were also in the kingdom, and I had a Province in hand and 2 favors. So, I bought Butcher, used City-State on it, and trashed my Province for the last Province

. Yeah.  But all things being equal it's kinda just like playing a normal game with an estate in your deck anyway, but Gold (or another Animal Fair really) probably was the optimal play.

That said I probably buy the provy to just to do it.

Wait.... your deck then contains:

Estate, Copper x 9, Silver? That seems very slightly better than opening Silver / nothing.

depending on the board (plateau shepherds, rebuild, governor with good 4 costs cards) it is possible he kept an estate over a copper too.
But I agree with you, unless there was some 5-cost TFB like maybe upgrade/replace/apprentice this doesn't seem like a very good idea to me either. I guess it's kinda like a buy-less ducat, only you can trash estates too. Though absent maybe keep/bandit fort I still couldn't see doing that even.

Probably being allowed to use coffers for black market buys (and at other times).

Of course. My head is swimming with rule changes I suppose.

Was going to Zombie Apprentice to hopefully draw the needed +buy loot but wasn't wearing my glasses. Instead Misclicked a Zombie Mason to take the penultimate province by hitting a 7-cost loot allowing me to buy the last one and end the game.
