Since agefen and I were talking about this earlier today, here's the thread where I recount a story of a chance encounter with Jep!'s host shortly before the show made its debut... who then himself chimes in on the thread!

Just a lovely thread, well worth reading.
Got a little pang seeing paucle's handle. RIP, gentle spirit.

Am I mistaken, or does the final post in that thread bring things back around (so to speak) to the first post of this thread???

(By which I mean the link to a file called "for cory" on pacdudegames-dot-com. Did you have an alternate login here, Cory?)

Got a head start on the player page with so many extras to include: https://www.j-archive.com/showplayer.ph ... r_id=14401

Post here (with no spoilers of any kind) or wait until tomorrow's game thread for adjustments to the information.

Wouldn't that be their question? (And well done. If only mine had. Sigh.)

It’s their question. They are the contestant, it’s their money on the line.

Or to look at it another way, would the contestant refer to it as “their question” or “your question”?

Lastly, the contestant always has the final say. Therefore it’s their question.

But congrats on answering their question correctly.
