Simple Card

The Simple Card strategies can be used for cards that require no additional logic to resolve once played. For most simple cards it is better to buy gold in favor of buying the simple card, but for a few it it is better to favor of them over gold.

Below the strategies you will find the ratings and optimal parameters of the cards. In case it was better to buy more than one card, I also list the rating of playing with just one of that card.

Variant: Simple Card > Gold

Buy rules:
- PROVINCE: golds >= 0 [pmg]
- DUCHY: provinces left <= 5 [d]
- ESTATE: provinces left <= 2 [e]
- (Card): always, max=[n]
- GOLD: always
- SILVER:always
Play rules:
- (Card): always

Cards, ratings and optimal parameters:

Card vs Bmu [n] [pmg] [d/e]*
Witch 96% 2 cards (n=2) buy gold first (pmg=1) d/e = 5/2
Witch 92% 1 card (n=1) buy gold first (pmg=1) d/e = 5/2
Mountebank 91% 2 cards (n=2) buy gold first (pmg=1) d/e = 5/2
Mountebank 87% 1 card (n=1) buy gold first (pmg=1) d/e = 5/2
Adventurer 54% 1 card (n=1) buy gold first (pmg=1) d/e = 7/2

Variant: Simple Card < Gold

Buy rules:
- PROVINCE: golds >= 0 [pmg]
- DUCHY: provinces left <= 5 [d]
- ESTATE: provinces left <= 2 [e]
- GOLD: always
- (Card): always, max=1 [n]
- SILVER:always
Play rules:
- (CARD): always

*I ran some [d/e] optimizations but the differences are too small to actually be significant. The numbers are for reference.
