Ever felt really unlucky?

Check my friend's hand after I played Council Room... ;D

Meh, it's better than drawing 2 Coppers and 4 Curses.

At least his next hand is going to be terrific!

If you draw 2 coppers and 4 curses you are clearly cheating. What's more, you're really bad at it.

Reminds me of my favorite cheating story.  At 2009 WBC, my then-girlfriend (now-wife) played a 4-player game of base Dominion with no trashing.

One of her opponents, in an attempt to get a tiny decktrimming advantage, secretly removed one of his Estates from his deck as the game started.

He ended up coming in second.

Regular hand + an opponent's Council Room?  Doesn't sound like cheating...

Well, it was a very crazy 3-player game involving Witch, Mountebank, Hoard, Gardens, Colony, and Council Room was the only source of +buy. His next hand had Mountebank and a Copper, the other 3 were crap. Since I was the only one shooting for Gardens (by opening double Silver and getting Hoards ASAP), he didn't play his Mountebank because it would have benefited me greatly. Ergo his next hand was crap too. I won with 10 Gardens and 15 Curses in my 55 card deck, the Hoards netted me no less than 8 Golds the piles emptied were Gardens, Curse and Estate. :)
