Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Alex oddly starts w/ an F while on the MW near $800 and there is one in the third word of four. She then takes the obvious gamble…$$$! But after her FP of two O’s is the BANKRUPT near TD to lose the prize almost immediately. Second, Michael takes two $700 L’s, a U, two N’s for the gift tag, a $550 D, an M for the same 1/2 CAR and an A, followed by a $650 S, the last vowel of two I’s, and the leftover $800 P…

But after he buys the other two vowels, he BANKRUPTS next to $650 to lose his Spark bid for good as well as $2,750. Kara then puts up two S’s for $1,400 and three TD P’s…
