Round 1: BEFORE & AFTER

That same team is off and running w/ two $500 R’s, two A’s, a $900 N, a $600 S, an I, but then T for trouble. Second, T & E call up a $600 H, three O’s, two M’s for that WC, a $600 L and two E’s to finish off the vowels. After a $1K pair of F’s…

A / L O N _

Mystery Round: WAYD?

Those girls on the end lose their WC right away w/ the BANKRUPT near $650. Second, the boys take three $500 T’s, two $500 S’s, E and A singles, but then H for hush while on the MW near $650. Third, J & B LaT out. T & E next say a D while on the same MW and under that is…ZERO. The boys then choose a $700 R, an O, a $600 F, and a U…

…they aren’t STUDYING FOR A TEST, but rather scoring their first $2,800.

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

M & C pass their EXPRESS opportunity right away after starting a T…and it was a good move after all, because their next call of C is not there. Second, J & B run into the same normal BANKRUPT. T & E thirdly pick a $500 N, five E’s, a $3,500 R, a $500 S, but then A for awful. After the boys say another baddie of D,J & B light up three $500 Y’s…

Y _ _ / _ _ N ‘ T
_ E _ _ E _ E
Y _ _ R / E Y E S

YOU WON’T BELIEVE YOUR EYES when we tell them that they’ve each won a trip to the Bolongo bay Resort in ST. THOMAS worth $11,758.

But those girls instantly get that same BANKRUPT for the third time tonight. The boys also hit the same thing. Third in line, J & B pick a $700 S, two $500 T’s, three A’s, and a $500 M, but here comes the LaT. T & E then call two $650 B’s, two FP E’s to finish off the vowels, and two $700 L’s…
