Round 1: THINGS

She starts us off w/ two S’s for $1,400, two T’s to turn that initial amount into $3K, four E’s, an H for the Canada trip, an an A, followed by a B for the MDW, the O and I singles to clean out the vowels and two N’s for $1,800. She decides to go on…well, she makes it past the BANKRUPT near $650, but she says a MAJOR DUD of M to throw away $11,300 cash & trip plus that MDW. Jon then puts up the twin L’s for a grand…

T H E / B E S T_ E A L S

…and he knows how to find THE BEST DEALS ONLINE.


Jon: $1K/Mindy: $0/Shari: $3K


Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Here goes Jon w/ quad N’s for $2K, two A’s, an $800 L, a $700 D, and six E’s. He nearly tries to solve, but he spins again…and gets the same BANKRUPT that Shari was flirting w/ to flush $3K down the tubes. Second, Mindy lights up three R’s and goes for that’s under the MW near $800…$$$! After a $3K trio of V’s…

N E V E R / _ A _
N E V E R –
N E V E R / L A N D

…she says “NEVER SAY NEVER-NEVER LAND” for $13K.


Jon: $1K/Mindy: $13K/Shari: $3K


PP/Express Round: WAYD?

Mindy first wastes a spin w/ that same BANKRUPT. Second for Shari are three N’s for $1,800 but then the LaT. Down Jon’s path third are two G’s for $1,800, an I and four E’s, but then R for roadblock. After Mindy runs into the other BANKRUPT, Shari puts up two O’s, three $600 T’s, and a trio of A’s, but the LaT shoots her down again. Jon then lights up a $900 H, the last vowel of U, a $500 C, an $800 Z and two S’s via EXPRESS. You bet he’s GOING ABOARD

Current Bank: $5,250
Next Choices: D and L

good thing he got this even w/o the B’s — the $32K has been collected from a BUSY HARBOR and his final total’s $51,050 cash & trip. We’ll see if he’s the big winner of this week since he’s the designated blogger.

    Jon probably is the biggest winner. Weeks like this are TOO relaxed…which I like.
