Just thought I'd share this amusing tidbit I noticed in a recent game...a combo between Treasury and Border Village. As a reminder, Treasury can be placed back on top of your deck if you didn't but any victory cards during your turn. That's where Border Village comes in: since it allows you to gain a card costing less than it, you can purchase a BV, gain a Duchy, and still place those Treasuries back on your deck....now there's some Hollywood accounting for you!

Yeah, that works with many of the victory-restricted cards. Buy Province with Haggler in play. You can't gain a Duchy, but you can gain a Border Village which gains a Duchy. The Border Villages tend to run out quickly when people are pulling off those kinds of shenanigans.

I'd say Border villages are made for shenanigans! Amazing with you can get away with out at the kingdom's border. But perhaps I've said too much....(twisted smile)

Indeed! We played our first game with BV the other night; Mandarin was there too. I got $6 at one point, bought a BV, gained a Mandarin, and put the $6 back on top of my deck. Rinse and repeat.
