My opponent way of the ratted Necropolis with a 5/2 open and no two on the board.  Funny I guess. 

But then they did the same thing t 3.

In a game with Shaman and Shelters, Overgrown Estate was in the Trash, and I had a Hovel in my hand. I gained the Overgrown Estate via Shaman, which let me trash my Hovel, effectively swapping out one for the other

4 person IRL game. Marauder in Kingdom. Wall Landmark. Only trashing card was Crystal Ball. No +2 card draws.

It was an ugly long game. Talk about slogs!

I won the game with -11 on a 3 pile ending. Picked up a province, 2 duchies, had 1 estate. 39 cards in deck (for -24). Everyone else had 40 to 49 cards in their decks.

Nobody got to trash much. With such large decks, the crystal balls showed up sparingly and sometimes it wasn't something you wanted to trash.

Spoils galore but again with such junked decks it was hard to get more than 1 in a hand.

I stopped buying anything but victory cards and the last card for a 3 pile ending because I thought I had enough to win. I started trashing with every crystal ball no matter what (I had only 2) unless it was a coin that gave me enough for a province or duchy.

2 player game - had Cathedral, Shaman and Feodum. Also some other cards, but those weren't really relevant. First turn, $3, buy cathedral, second turn $4 buy Feodum, from then on buy a Feodum every chance I could and start each turn by trashing then gaining - generally trashing a Feodum and gaining it straight back from the trash.

Piled out the silvers, and then moved onto buying provinces with each hand of 4 silvers.

I misread the rules which led to piling out the silvers with two Bridges and Delve.

The first 2 times I played with Inherited it was Rats. (The first time Broker was in the kingdom with League of Bankers as the ally so I was very happy to start with rats, the second time I never played it.)

In a Tomb game I was able to use the Spell Scroll & Treasurer combo to kill the last 9, and accumulate 36 coins clearing the last 3 Provinces in the process.

Just realized that Endless Chalice prevents Alms (which sounds slightly counterthematic)

Had a game with both Baths and Possession which was interesting. Since in a Possession turn, it's the Possessed player who's actually playing, but the Possessing player who gains cards, this means that the Possessed player is playing a turn in which they do not gain any cards, and thus they get the 2 VP tokens from Baths. So it's like "Sorry for Possessing you. Here's 2 VP to compensate"

True, though generally speaking Alms is most useful in the early game, so by the time you get an Endless Chalice, you're probably not going to be using Alms much anyways

Footpad + Old Witch in the same game. Opponent plays Old Witch, giving me a Curse. Since it's during an Action phase, I draw a card. That card happens to be another Curse, which I then immediately trash. I had not had a Curse in hand before the Old Witch was played

I had bought Inheritance while my opponent hadn't. I play a Hex attack, giving them Fear. They discard a useless Estate, because it's an Action card on my turn.
