TONIGHT’S TRIP: vegas.BUZZ w/ the Haunted Vegas Tour and Show
Round 1: MOVIE QUOTE
Triple T’s for $2,100 get her started, but the N ends her turn just as quick. Second, Mark picks up that MDW w/ two S’s but then repeats said dud consonant. Third, Jessica also says a baddie of R. Returning to Sarah who puts up four $600 L’s, four E’s, three A’s, a $500 D, two I’s, three $500 M’s and two O’s to clean out the vowels before running into LaT. Mark then puts up the $800 W and a $900 G to complete the board (he just barely slid past the BANKRUPT next to top dollar)…

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Both Mark and Jessica dud out right away w/ S and R, respectively. Third in line, Sarah picks off a $1,300 pair of T’s, two $800 H’s, three $3,500 N’s, four I’s, three E’s and an A before calling up three G’s while on the MW near $650. She obviously declines a $12,650 gamble (though the $10K was on the back side). After buying the remaining O, she puts up four $500 D’s and we have…

PP/Express Round: WAYD?
In her quest to finally get on the board, Jessica starts w/ a $700 G, two FP A’s, two TD N’s and a $700 R, then she buys E and O singles, FPs two I’s, but then BANKRUPTs near TD to give up $7,900. Second, Sarah tries a $650 L and a $550 T, but the other normal one snatches the $1,200 away from her. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Mark gets the exact same fate as Sarah to send his MDW to the grave. Jessica restarts w/ a $900 H but then M for mistake. Sarah then inserts a $550 S, two $650 C’s, a U, a $500 B, and a $900 P to leave only the K unrevealed…
