Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Here goes Lisa w/ a T for the blue 1/2 KIA, two A’s, two S’s for the HomeGoods SS, and two E’s, but the MDW’s right side forces her to hand over both non-cash items. Second, Anna gets the WC w/ three R’s but LaTs out just as quick. Third for Michael are a $1,500 P trio, two O’s, the I single, a $900 L, a $00 C, and the last vowel of U. After a $300 G…

PP Round: EVENT 

Anna starts an important round w/ a $400 R, four E’s, but then the BANKRUPT next to $900 to hand over $150 and the WC. Second, Mike gets the same fate on the same side of the MDW. Third, Lisa takes four $300 T’s and two H’s, buys vowel singles of A and O, but then BANKRUPTS the same way Anna did to give up $1,700; that’s her second one of the game. Said lady at the end also has her second BANKRUPT w/ the one next to TD. Mike’s second try has him putting up a $600 B, the remaining vowels, a $1K S pair for the same 1/2 KIA, an $1,800 N double, and a $500 G before he says a fatal dud of L. Lisa then gets the TicketsNow gift tag w/ two C’s…
