Round 1: THINGS
Her opening letters are a $900 S, a TD R, a $900 N, and two A’s before she BANKRUPTS next to TD to lose $4,050. Second, Wendy calls up two L’s for $1,300, a $900 D, a $650 Y, and an O, followed by a $900 W, but then the sole dud vowel of I. Third, Erik grabs the WC w/ a T, buys the last vowel of U, lights up a $600 H and gets the Zappos gift tag w/ a J. But after a $600 C is the other normal BANKRUPT to take away $2,950 cash & GT plus his WC. After Ashley’s $700 M and a LaT landing…

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Wendy first FPs a dud vowel of E and loses her turn w/ the T. Second, Erik puts up a $900 R, and buys the twin A’s, I, and double O’s to clean out the vowels. Following a $1K pair of L’s, he can’t pick up the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900 w/ C. Ashley next picks off a $500 F, a $900 D, a TD W, and double Z’s for $1,800 more…
