Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Tori’s first letters this night are an R for the Yankee Candle gift tag, but then a dud purchase in A. Second, Scott wastes a FP usage by repeating the A, lights up an $800 S, but then BANKRUPTs near TD. Third, Joy gets up there a $650 N but no more w/ a T request. After Tori calls her second straight dud of H, Scott picks a $900 G, buys two I’s, but then LaTs out. Joy next hits the MDW’s left side, so she loses the $650 and her WC. Tori follows suit w/ two $900 L’s, but then the other dud vowel of the board (O). Once Scott says yet another baddie of D, Joy inserts a $900 C, buys the leftover vowels… and says the SL Bonus of four $3,500 P’s! The board…

P E R P L E _ I N G

    Well, this is looking incredibly good! My rating is a high 7 (largely thanks to Round 2).

    Also, pretty rare that right after the No More Vowels graphic pops up and the Final Spin bells ring, Pat mentions that there are no more vowels.
