Round 1: WAYD?

His first spin’s a waste because of the BANKRUPT near TD. Second, Dewey calls out four T’s for $3,600, two E’s and an A, a $1,300 pair of N’s, two O’s, two $800 R’s, and three I’s to clean out the vowels. He follows w/ a $500 W, two $550 M’s and a solve attempt…

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Coming off a good R1, Dewey begins this one w/ a $900 T, two E’s and A, but then the LaT. Second, Lisa spins up the same BANKRUPT Mike got. Said yellow player is third in line w/ an R for the WC, three I’s to finish off the vowels, two TD N’s, and a C courtesy of his WC. Unfortunately, that same BANKRUPT strikes again to the tune of $10,750. Dewey resumes his run w/ a $7K pair of S’s, a B for the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900, an $800 G, but the LaT bites him again. Lisa next picks a $900 W, but the MDW’s left BANKRUPT cuts her off. Mike then SPINGLES for the $550 H…

B A S I C
T R A I N I N G
W H E E _ S

…and solves BASIC TRAINING WHEELS to go to three grand.

LaTs: 2 (Dewey)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (Lisa 2x, Mike)

This round’s all Lisa — she picks a $600 R, three E’s, a $500 N, two A’s, an S for the Zappos gift tag, three $800 T’s, a $650 P and two FP I’s. Board…

She needs some help in the bottom word…

PDBO gives her at least a letter…

    This was a pretty average episode, and Lisa needed the A's and/or H in the BR.

    And you've already lost the war as you're unwilling to get your butt off your chair and stop hiding behind a computer screen.

    Also, calling me a jew will work against your case here.
