Round 1: MOVIE TITLE

There he goes w/ a $700 T, an E buy, a $700 H, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $1,150. Second, Taryn runs into the other BANKRUPT. Third, Aleah takes an $800 N, an I, a $700 S, four A’s, and an O, then come a $700 F, a FP U to clean out the vowels, and two TD G’s. We now have…

G U A _ _ I A N S / O F
T H E / G A _ A _ _

…she solves “GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY” for $6,450.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (Aleah’s opposition)

Aleah: $6,450/Fred: $3K/Taryn: $0

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

First for Taryn are three $600 T’s, but then the LaT. Second, Aleah BANKRUPTS next to TD. Third, Fred spots a $700 H, two E’s, a $900 L, and an A, then he says three N’s for the NY trip, two I’s, a TD G, a $700 M and two O’s to clean out the vowels before BANKRUPTING next to $650 to forfeit $13,876 cash & NYC. After Taryn gets the exact same fate as Aleah to lose the 18 Benjamins…

Current leader Aleah begins this answer w/ three N’s for $1,800, an O, three E’s and four I’s, the obvious three $500 G’s and two A’s to clean out the vowels, but next is M for mistake. Second, Fred loses his next turn w/ the same BANKRUPT he got late last round (and that’s his third one of the night). Third for Taryn are a $500 T, a $600 L, two $500 D’s, but then her second LaT of the game. After Aleah’s $1K pair of R’s…

R I D I N G / _ I _ E _
I N / G O L D E N
G A T E / _ A R _

…she might be RIDING BIKES IN GOLDEN GATE PARK, because she’s won $3,300 and a collette trip to S.F. worth $6,298 (J.P. Mackey NOT included, of course).

    What you said in R3 had me cracking up Andy! LOL.

    This first week from HI was BO-ring. Hopefully, and I mean hopefully, next week will be far better.

    I like how this week, there were no tropical trips.
