Does Throne Room cause a Possession card to give you control over two extra turns? I can see it argued both ways convincingly, so I'm looking for an authoritative answer. Google has thus far failed to get me one.

I expect this to be the same as playing the possession card twice on your turn, and related to King's Court.

From page 3 of the Alchemy Kingdom Card Description pamphlet:
— Possession is cumulative; if you play it twice in one turn, there will be two extra turns after this one.

Also, for reference:

    However, I prefer to not play with Possession. In my experience it's not a very fun card, unless you're playing with a group of competitively-minded people who will play again if they are totally trounced, which Possession can cause to happen. May 5, 2011 at 22:33
  • And yes, Throne Room causes you to play a card twice, and King's Court thrice, so the rules definitely would call for multiple possessed turns in this case. Crazy. May 5, 2011 at 22:34
  • That's exactly what I was looking for. I seem to have missed that whole page while reading the rules.

    The real question, speaking as a longtime Magic player, is whether it's possible to take INFINITE turns on behalf of the player to your left, or failing that, as many turns as logistically permitted by some combination of cards... May 5, 2011 at 23:45
  • I think I could chop up and rephrase half your question as "Is it possible to take as many turns as permitted?" Yes. May 6, 2011 at 0:32

The logic on this is very simple, "Throne Room" causes the action to take place twice. That means that "Possession" will occur once, resolve all the way through the first turn, then it will occur a second time, as if you had played another copy of the card that turn.
