Great news, Brent, thank you. Do I understand correctly and I should now
use GetProperty("X-Men_playing") wherever I was using just
$X-Men_playing$ before? What about $playerSide$_playing where
$playerSide$ resolves to X-Men?

Any chance you could expand your fix to empty spaces and (), i.e. round
brackets, in variable names? Thanks.
