Round 1: PHRASE
They start w/ a $1,200 pair of S’s but then LOSE A TURN just as quick. Second, E & L get a $1,300 pair of N’s, a $600 G, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to forfeit $1,900. Third, the men call up an L for the WC, an I, a $500 P, a U singleton, two T’s for $1,300, and five E’s before we look at…

Mystery Round: CHARACTERS
E & L are off and running w/ a $700 S and a T while on the MW near LaT. They risk the 7 Benjamins…but they’ve BANKRUPTED for the second time tonight. Second, the boys put up a $1K L, two E’s, three FP N’s, two D’s for $1,800 and four A’s, before an I buy stops them. Third, B & K waste a spin w/ the same normal BANKRUPT. Back to E & L who find three W’s for $2,400, two Y’s and a G at $500 a pop, three R’s for $2,400 and a $700 H, but that same pesky BANKRUPT goes wild on them to the tune of $7K. Afterwards, the men light up a TD M but then waste a good WC usage by saying P. After B & K hit the MDW’s left side, E & L spingle for the $900 F…
