WoF Recap: November 18, 2015

Upon further review, the vehicle for this week is actually the Winnebago Travato (and it makes sense since you can take that outdoors). The Ford Flex, which I mistakenly said after taking the virtual set tour, should be used for an upcoming “America’s Game” episode.

EPISODE #6288: GREAT OUTDOORS

$1K Tossup: ON THE MAP

_ H E / _ R E G _ N
_ _ A _ _

I’ve played the computer game about this when I was young, and Courtney knows that’s THE OREGON TRAIL. Meeting everybody now…

Michael Varino: retired MUD engineer from Kenner, LA
Gemina Stroud: traffic coord. who has a fascination w/ twins from Stockbridge, GA

Courtney’s two for two w/ “NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC”.

TONIGHT’S TRIP: Ireland

Round 1: SAME LETTER

She gets to work w/ two $700 T’s, one E and two A’s, three N’s for the Victorinox gift tag, and two I’s, followed by the SL Bonus of three $650 N’s, the last vowels of two O’s and U’s, a $550 R, and two TD S’s before she finally goes for the solve…

M _ S T E R I O U S
M O U N T A I N
M A N

…this MYSTERIOUS MOUNTAIN MAN must award her $11,150 cash & GT.

PR!

Courtney: $14,150 cash & GT/Others: $0 each

—————

Mystery Round: FUN & GAMES

Both Michael and Gemina strike out instantly w/ T and R, respectively. We’re going to Courtney already, and she’s chosen five N’s for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $600, four I’s, and two O’s and a $600 G before the M stops her while she’s on the MW near LaT. Michael next picks an $800 H, a K for that WC but then L for loss. Gemina follows w/ a $650 C, the last vowel of A, but then the MDW’s right side. Courtney then plugs in a TD Y and a FP Z to complete the board…

H I K I N G / I N
Z I O N / C A N Y O N

…she correctly reads it for $6,600 more.

DUDS: T (Michael), R (Gemina), M (Courtney), L (Michael)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Gemina

Courtney: $20,750 cash & GT 1/2 CAR/Others: $0 each (Michael w/ the WC)

PP/Express Round: THINGS

This round’s all Gemina — she chooses two S’s for the same 1/2 CAR, an A, a TD L, an I, a $600 N, and three E’s to clean out the vowels…

I S L A N _
_ _ E E _ E S

…in addition to her first $4,350, she’ll feel the ISLAND BREEZES during her stay at the ARUBA Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino worth $9,128, presented by the new movie “LOVE the COOPERS”.

Michael: WC/Gemina: $13,478 cash & Aruba/Courtney: $20,750 cash & GT

B U T _ E R F L Y

Courtney sweeps ’em w/ SOCIAL BUTTERFLY.

Round 4: LIVING THINGS

A $1,300 pair of S’s gets her started, then she buys a single E and A for awful. Michael secondly wants a $700 I, but he buys the other bad vowel of this board (I). Gemina thirdly spins up a $650 R, four O’s, but then the LaT. Courtney next tacks on two $600 N’s and the two remaining U’s before the BANKRUPT near TD shoots her down to the tune of $1,750. Michael then uncovers three $5K D’s and two H’s courtesy of his WC

_ L O O D H O U N D S
& / _ R E _ H O U N D S

…he can thank these BLOODHOUNDS & GREYHOUNDS for taking him all the way from zero to first place at $25,450!

Lead-offs…

GPMI adds a couple of letters…

_ R _ _ E N

…at this point, FROZEN ICE PICK would be wrong…and he unfortunately says that instead of FROZEN ICE PACK for the $33K.

    VERY nice comeback by Michael! Too bad Courtney didn't win, but she did awesome herself. And so did Gemina – $19,478 for THIRD place?! I'll take it!

    I kinda thought it was BROKEN instead of FROZEN. So close for Michael, but at least he lost $33K.

    My rating: 8 (too darn good of an episode)
