WoF Recap: December 8, 2015


$1K Tossup: PHRASE

T _ E / K I D / I N
_ L L / O _ / _ S

George rightly says he has THE KID IN ALL OF US. Let’s meet him first…

George Kanuck: VP of a bank and men’s travel softball team player/coach from Austin, TX
Julie Davis: grant management specialist for a federal agency from Stone Mountain, GA
Casey Gunn: office supply co. worker from Denham Springs, LA


_ _ _ F L E
I _ _ _

Casey solves WAFFLE IRON.


Her first letter of N while on the sears gift tag stands for no. Second, George calls out a $550 T, two $600 S’s, two E’s, but then the sole dud vowel of O. Third, Julie picks two $500 R’s, three A’s, but then D for dud. Casey tries again w/ a $500 M, a TD C, and the other two good vowels, then she gets the GT this time w/ an L and strikes out w/ P. George then spins once for a $700 B…

B U R _ L A R

…he solves SIAMESE CAT BURGLAR for $1,950.

DUDS: N (Casey), O (George), D (Julie), P (Casey)

Julie: $0/Casey: $2K/George: $2,950


Mystery Round: SONG LYRICS

This round’s all George — he picks two $700 S’s, five $650 T’s, three I’s and four E’s, three H’s and a W at $500 apiece, two N’s for that MDW, an I, and five O’s. Board…

W H E N / I T ‘ S
_ O _ _ / O _ T S I _ E
I ‘ _ E / _ O T / T H E
_ O N T H / O _ / _ A _

…he exactly recites “WHEN IT’S COLD OUTSIDE, I’VE GOT THE MONTH OF MAY” (from The Temptations’ “My Girl”) for $5,650.


Julie: NOTHING/Casey: $2K/George: $8,600 MDW


PP/Express Round: WAYD?

The scoreless Julie gets started w/ a $500 R, a $900 G, two I’s, and a FP A, then she says two $650 N’s, two E’s, and L for loss while on the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900. Casey next lights up a $1,300 T pair, two $550 H’s, but the sole dud vowel of O lets somebody down again…

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

…and George will be WATCHING THE SUNRISE for probably a week at the Mauna Lani Bay in HAWAII worth $7,054.  a new cash/HI trip total of $15,654.

DUDS: L (Julie), O (Casey)

Julie: NADA/Casey: $2K/George: $15,654 cash & HI MDW


$3K Tossup: PEOPLE

_ O L L _ G _
S _ E _ T H _ _ R T S

George will probably contact his COLLEGE SWEETHEARTS.

Round 4: THING

It’s all George again — he lights up a $600 T, a $500 S, two E’s and O’s, four $500 N’s, and two I’s.

_ I N N E _
_ O N _ E _ S _ T I O N

…this experience will be the subject of his next DINNER CONVERSATION, as he makes the $2,350 solve.

PR #2

Julie: NO LUCK/Casey: $2K/George: $21,004 cash & HI MDW

Speed-Up: FOOD & DRINK

It’s another $1,500 FS.  After the backloading E pops up…

T _ _ _ S C _

George seals the game w/ some TABASCO SAUCE.

DUDS: R (Julie), N (Julie)

Julie: $1K GOOSEEGG/Casey: $2K/George: $22,504 cash & HI MDW

GT: $25,504

Julie: CT05062 (Celestine T.)/Casey: SD9066990 (Shanie D.)


MILLION DOLLAR BONUS ROUND #5 (and 4th this sweepstakes period)
George has landed on that M in AMERICA’S. The super big one was there almost a week ago, but you never know.

Category: PHRASE
Opening layout…

_ _ S _ / _ _ T _
_ _ _ S E _ _ R _

He wipes out of the game w/ PCDA. I’m just too BUSY WITH HOUSEWORK and awarding him another $33K. Like last Friday’s MDBR, we were two off — in this case, it was the R from the same word.

SPIN ID: SB4790575 (Shenell B.)

    Something's going on w/ that MDW. Otherwise, George did a pretty good job (but BGHO would've worked in the BR).
