comment If I buy a Mint, do I still get to use the coins from the treasures I played that turn to buy a Grand Market?
I'm sorry, but the Prosperity rulebook as well as the online implementations on Isotropic and Goko (which have been vetted by Donald X., the game creator) all disagree with you.

comment Procession and pillage interaction
You are correct. The end result is that Pillage's attack happens, the Pillage ends up in the Trash, you gain 4 Spoils, and you gain a $6 Action card. It's just like Throne Room-ing a Feast; because gaining the $6 Action card from Procession is not dependent on Trashing the Pillage (there is no "if you do" clause), then you must still gain the $6 Action card even though the Pillage is already in the Trash when Procession tries to trash it.

comment How much would the cards from Dominion: Alchemy cost if you wanted to use them while not playing with potions?
@warbaker: In Vineyards games you'll see folks buy more Potions in order to rush the Vineyards pile.

comment Do you have to reveal your hand when using Treasure Map and not trashing a TM from your hand?
@thesunneversets: I don't mean to imply that the card is perfect, or that it wouldn't have been better with the may clause. When I said that it should not have been written with a "may," I meant in response to the answer below that says essentially "Donald X. really meant to write may but didn't, so we should read it as if it had a may." Sorry if I came off too strongly.

comment Do you have to reveal your hand when using Treasure Map and not trashing a TM from your hand?
@RobRenaud: Probably low, but I can imagine corner cases involving Menagerie (you're about to draw some cards and don't want to draw Golds), Fairgrounds (you need a Treasure Map for the diversity but you want to get rid of one of your remaining two to cycle more effectively), Scrying Pool (topdecking Golds might disrupt your drawing), etc.

comment Dominion Seaside Treasure Map: do both copies activate?
@Konerak: No, because the "if" clause only triggers if you trash two Treasure Maps. The first time you play the original TM, you would be able to do so. The second time, though, the original TM has already been trashed; you would therefore trash the remaining TM from your hand but not gain the Golds, because you hadn't trashed two TMs during that play of the original TM.

comment Do you have to reveal your hand when using Treasure Map and not trashing a TM from your hand?
@Joe: the reason you would not reveal your hand is because nothing in the card directions says to reveal your hand. Sometimes cards specify that you have to reveal your hand if you can't take a particular action, but other times they do not. Compare Bureaucrat and Moneylender from the base set, or Cutpurse and Treasure Map from Seaside. The first card in each pair contains a reveal the hand clause, whereas the latter card does not.

comment Do you have to reveal your hand when using Treasure Map and not trashing a TM from your hand?
@user1873: Your distinction is neither accurate nor supported by the text of the card or the rules. There is nothing in the Treasure Map card or the FAQ that says anything about revealing your hand. Please don't pass on incorrect information.
