3 Festivals is +6 gold
To get to buying power of 24 you'd need 6 gold cards in hand

How'd you get to 9 cards? What else was powering that?

For me, it was 78* points. I was getting killed in a 2-player game. My opponent had purchased 5 provinces already and I had none, but I was playing 8 or 9 villages per turn hoping that all 8 of my coppers would get into my hand at the same time - never happened, which was so frustrating. So on my turn, I punched him in the face, knocking him to the floor. I grabbed the provinces out of his deck along with the other three still on the table. I yelled, "Game over - I win!!!" and ran out the door with the cards.

Easily my most fulfilling victory in Dominion - my opponent never saw it coming. I think he's still bitter about the defeat since he hasn't invited me over to play again. He will have to eventually because I still have his province cards.

*Edit - Thanks to Jay (see below)

Library and a couple of Labs. I don't remember the turn exactly but I think my starting had was 2 festivals, a library, and two gold. So, F+F+L, draw five, L+L, draw 4. There were exactly six gold in my deck (no copper or silver), which was small of course and at that point included two provinces as the only point cards.

I think it could also be done if Smithy were available. I've had double-province turns with Festival + Witch which amounted to 15 point swings because of three witches.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

I thumbed this, then revoked the thumb as the actual point swing was 78... -30 for the opponent, +48 for you.

This actually happened on BSW. I can't remember, as it was a few days ago, but I don't think I even won that game...
