I just noticed something a little bit unusual.

Dtdb's card image for Jia Mein says "... to make her a stud."

My set (and Dtdb's card text) says "... to make him a stud."

I expect it's just a detail that was changed late in development, and dtdb's card image is from an older version, but the possibility that both versions exist as physical cards is interesting to me.

Anyone want to indulge my idle curiosity and check their sets?

My proof copy says: "make Jia Mein a stud."

My cards say: "make him a stud."

I noticed this a while ago, but wanted to see more evidence as to which was correct. It's worth noting that "Jia" could be either male or female.

I originally interpreted the name as "Add Noodles", as jia in Chinese means "add" and mein is "noodles." But my fiancee, after looking at the picture, translated it as "a person with a mask on."

Given Jia's ability "Attach a Hex to make him a stud", it's clear that noodles is simply another word for "magical spell". So when Ivor tells Jia Mein to 'use your noodle', you know what he's talking about

Aha! This may also help explain the Flying Spaghetti Monster then.
