For the Dominion players out there

Here's the setup for the finals of the Dexcon tournament.

How would you plan to play them with a 3-4 money split?

(And yes, there's inevitably some things you do to react to your opponents and your actual draws. I'm just looking for general plans.)

The board was made from Intrigue and Hinterlands only:


  • Courtyard (Action):
    +3 Cards
    Put a card from your hand on top of your deck.


  • Masquerade (Action):
    +2 Cards
    Each player passes a card in their hand to the player on their left. You may trash a card from your hand.

  • Tunnel (Victory/Reaction):
    2 Victory Points

    When you discard this other than during a Clean-up phase, you may reveal it. If you do, gain a Gold.


  • Mining Village (Action):
    +1 Card; +2 Actions
    You may trash this card immediately. If you do, +$2.

  • Spice Merchant (Action):
    You may trash a Treasure from your hand. If you do, choose one:
    +2 Cards and +1 Action;
    or +$2 and +1 Buy.


  • Torturer (Action - Attack):
    +3 Cards
    Each other player chooses one: he discards 2 cards; or he gains a Curse card, putting it in his hand.

  • Trading Post (Action):
    Trash 2 cards from your hand. If you do, gain a silver card; put it into your hand.

  • Embassy (Action):
    +5 Cards
    Discard 3 cards.

    When you gain this, each other player gains a Silver.

  • Highway (Action):
    +1 Card; +1 Action

    While this is in play, cards cost $1 less, but not less than $0.

  • Margrave (Action - Attack):
    +3 Cards; +1 Buy
    Each other player draws a card, then discards down to 3 cards in hand.

Bonus points if you can guess which one of these ten cards was never bought by anybody at the table.

Wild guess: no one bought Trading Post?

Hmm, interesting. I'm definitely biased because Torturer has won me more than one game.
