Round 1: FUN & GAMES
The first letters she calls are a $700 N, two A’s, two FP P’s, and two I’s. But after a TD L, the MDW’s right side comes by to take away $3,700. Second, R.J. calls up three G’s for $1,950, an O, an $800 R, and three E’s, then he mistakenly buys the U while on the WC and wastes his turn by repeating the G. Third, Jennifer fills in four T’s for $2,400, and the twin Z’s for $1,200 more…

R.J. first puts up an $800 R, but then hits the same BANKRUPT that Lisa got. Second in line, Jennifer takes a $650 T, three $800 S’s, but then the sole dud vowel of A. Third for Lisa is N for no. R.J. next gets the SHOP.COM gift tag w/ an L (it’s $$$), but loses another turn w/ a P call. Once Jennifer strikes out w/ M, Lisa proceeds to put up two D’s for the WC, six E’s and an O, a $600 B, and the last vowel of two U’s, then she sees…
