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…
