Won against the hard bot on this crazy board
« on: September 23, 2021, 06:26:04 am »

Failed to publish image so I will just explain what happened.

Vineyard, Apothecary, Scrying Pool, University, Castles, Chariot Race, Philosophers Stone, Temple, Archive and Groundskeeper
Labyrinth and Orchard

I got some SP's and an University while trashing down with Temple. The bot quickly got three Chariot Races and started some pseudo-big money strategy. While I realized that I maybe had trashed down too much and lost economy, the bot had trashed down so much that I couldn't get any coins from my Chariots. While they got a 'golden deck' of a single Temple, I made a deck which got a Groundskeeper and a Vineyard about every turn. Since the bot didn't gain any cards I spent about 20 turns emptying the Groundskeeper, Vineyard and Estate piles.
Resulting points: me: 233, the bot: 33

I put in a similar effort, but I had a much easier board than you did.  92 turns, 230 cards, and here was my result:

Here was the final board:

I bought a single Curse in my final turn (along with 5 other cards), to make my 8 Gardens each worth 23 instead of just 22 each.  Festival and Market were emptied earlier.  Then the remaining 6 piles (Province, Estate, Gardens, Copper, Chapel, Curse) were my final turn - I didn't quite land enough cash to buy out Duchy insead of Chapel, or I could have had 3 points more.  But hey... 260-to-1 is a pretty good score.
