I just thought I'd throw this up cause I thought it was cool.

Stewards to thin down the deck, and I'm a mad thinner. Grab 4 Ironworks, then villages (4) and in this case mining villages (4) as well, Doesn't take long with Ironworks, also stewards start helping you draw cards quickly, then grab 4 bridges. No money needed for this deck. You should be able to get all these by the forth time through your deck, or less. Then drop 4 bridges and 4 iron works for 5 provinces! game over.

Rare that you get all those cards together in a random mix, but it happened and the results were sweet.

anyways, probbly not orginal to everyone but it was for me!

I just won the other day in a three player game using a similar strategy. It happened so fast that the others were completely taken off guard. I am sure they won't let it happen again.

Here are the cards I ended up with before I made a purchase of 43 victory points in one turn.

1 Steward to thin my deck and use for money at the end of the game
7 Mining Villages (When my oppenents saw what I was doing, they tried to purchase them, but I snatched up the last four in one turn)
4 Conspirators
3 or 4 (Can't remember exactly) Laboratories
4 Bridges
4 Ironworks

Other cards in the game that I didn't purchase included Cellar, Moneylender, Trading Post, and Market.

My first buys were a Steward and an Ironworks. After that I don't remember the exact order, but I focused on more Ironwords, so I had four pretty quickly, two bridges early in order to use them to get Laboratories, and as many Mining Villages as I could get. There was a time where I gained 6 cards in one turn, four with my Ironworks, and two with the money and extra buys from Bridge and Conspirators. The turn after that I drew my entire hand and played Mining Villages and Bridges to get the Provinces to four cost cards. I next played my four Ironworks to grab four Provinces (24 points). I had played four Conspirators and one Steward to have 10 coins and five buys. At four coins a piece I purchased two more Provinces for a total of six.(36 points). I still had three buys and two coins so I purchased two Duchies at one coin a piece for a total of six Provinces and two Duchies (42 points). Finally, with only one buy left and no money, I purchased an Estate (43 points). After I did that, we ended the game. I don't remember but I think one or two Provinces had been purchased by the other players.

If you can read this, then this sentence is false.

If you had trashed the Mining Villages, you would have had 24 coins for a grand total of 10 Provinces...
