Wow! Attempted evilness on the tens digit avoided through sheer dumb luck!

(But whataver you do, don't do the obvious thing for that last number... it won't help if it's 1 or 9!)

Thankfully, she doesn't call the automatic "5" that most stage players would in her position...

That's what I like to see when I'm running this late... a bunch of nice, simple games to arrange. ^^;

The game itself seems fairly easy, too; just avoid that el cheapo offroad bike and you should be golden.

$17,000
$18,388

As tempting as it may be to rule out $17,000 immediately, I just can't help but think that if ever there was a time for Mike to play this card, it would be here... so I will, reluctantly, throw my support behind that price as being the one to avoid.

So naturally, Iris picks that one first, and...
