I forget, having played this years ago. Is the first card you give him always expired? Seems like the kind of thing that would happen in the game.

No, it would be appropriate, but it's always the US Excess that's dead:


>look at us excess
[taking the wallet first]

It is a high-status Iridium US Excess card. When you produce it in expensive restaurants, handsome men realise that you are the sort of person who would like to have more money than brains. The card is embossed with your name, an improbably long number and a hologram of a yak. It expired last month.

[Your blood pressure just went up.]

>look at beezer
It's just your ordinary, run-of-the-mill, plastic, embossed, hypnotic, lethal, devil-may-care Beezer card.

>look at wallet
This deeply tacky wallet was sent to you free by the US Excess Credit Card Corporation to tell you how much a person like you needed a US Excess card, what with your busy thrusting lifestyle in today's fast-moving, computerised, jet-setting world. Needless to say, you already had a US Excess card which they were trying to take away from you for not paying your account, which, equally needless to say, you had paid weeks ago.

At the moment, the wallet is open.

Sorry about the lack of real update today - instead of spending the evening gaming, I just napped for 6 hours. I am not hardcore.
