No idea he was still alive, then saddened at our loss when I read how much he had raised for charity. May he rest in eternal peace.

When you can have a mathematical puzzle based on your experience as a game show host, you must have had a full life.


The explanations make my brain hurt, but I would have stayed with my first choice.

Funnily enough back in the 1970s the expression "Monty Hall Dungeon" was a common phrase in D&D circles. Living in the UK I never knew it made a reference to a game show host. It was assumed that "Monty Hall" was some TSR supplement that I hadn't seen at the game store.

Right, I'd forgotten all about that. The "Monty Hall" DM was the one who loved to load players down with goodies. Fun for a while, but the lack of challenge got tiresome.

Can't remember the term for the opposite type.
