In multiplayer games, I get the highest number for challenge 1 with the following kingdom:

Card Number of $2 cards (including starting cards)

Imp gainer 13

Pixie 11

Tracker 11

Bauble 10 (+any number of Favors)

6 other $2 cards: 60

Estates: 15

-------------

120 $2 cards, for 240 VP

With Inheritance and Lurker (as one of the $2 cards) you can gain everyone else's Estates out of the trash, for another 9.

**IlstrawberrySeed**:

lurker can get you another 15 in 6 player games, rather than just 9 from 4 player games.

Additionally, black market can add some. There are 53 2-cost cards, but 6 are events or heirlooms, so 47. With the 1 imp gainer, you have 39 2-cost cards eligible for BM, making black market an increase of 29 cards or 58vp.

Masquerade is another way to get the estates from another player, and get the 3 heirlooms. loosing the 9 from lurker (one into the BM deck), that gives an additional 6 cards or 12 vp. Of course, linked cards in the BM deck.

Why are pixie and tracker 11 in the math? Assuming that’s right, 164 cards and 328vp.

Black Market is not allowed according to the OP. ;-)

Both Pixie and Tracker are a pile of 10 $2 kingdom cards plus a $2 heirloom, so 11 $2 cards each.

Masquerade could indeed give you another 5 Pouches and Goats each in 6p-games, but without BM you lose a 10-card $2 pile, so it doesn't change the total VP you can get.
