Does anyone know if Janet Gunn (iMDB) is related to James Gunn (Wiki)?
She appeared in "The Running Man" but interestingly was both a gymnast and a coach!
His Wiki says:
Gunn states his surname is derived from the Irish name MacGilGunn, meaning "sons to the servants of the god of the dead"
I'm wondering if she could have been his procurer.

I would like to point out that Q keeps saying, "This is not a game", but continues to communicate in a cryptic way and even cited Game Theory.
So, yes, this IS a game. We just don't know the rules and we're being used for the purposes of playing that game. A game over which we have no control.
Game theory isn't the study of how to win a game of chess or how to create a role-playing game scenario. Often, game theory doesn't even remotely relate to what you'd commonly consider to be a game.
At its most basic level, game theory is the study of how people, companies or nations (referred to as agents or players) determine strategies in different situations in the face of competing strategies acted out by other agents or players.

Game Theory and actually playing games are two completely different things.
Wow. You really believe that.
You are blind or ignorant or in denial. I don't know which.
I'm very sorry for you.
Game theory is "the study of mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers". Game theory is mainly used in economics, political science, and psychology, as well as in logic and computer science. Originally, it addressed zero-sum games, in which one person's gains result in losses for the other participants. Today, game theory applies to a wide range of behavioral relations, and is now an umbrella term for the science of logical decision making in humans, animals, and computers.
Game theory is not concerned with playing games for entertainment, fun or similar purposes - that is the field of Game studies.
A study by RAND Project AIR FORCE (PAF) shows how military planners can use game theory to understand the effects of U.S. strategy and capabilities on the enemy in TCT operations. Game theory uses mathematics to model human decisionmaking in competitive situations. It is ideally suited for analyzing military situations because it depicts the realistic situation in which both sides are free to choose their best “moves” and to adjust their strategy over time. Military planners can apply these principles to TCT operations through game theoretic analysis.
