      Description

      The pumpkin-derived lantern is "Jack 'o' Lantern" in game. That shouldn't be a quoted "o", it's the Irish patronymic prefix, or alternately an elision for "of the". Any of the following versions would be reasonable:
      Jack O'Lantern
      Jack o'lantern

      jack o'lantern (that is, capitalized only when any word would be, and only the J)
      jack-o-lantern (for those too poor to afford apostrophes )
      jack-o'-lantern (Wikipedia uses this one)
