WoF Recap: February 23, 2016


$1K Tossup: PLACE

_ _ T T _ _ G
R O _ _

Every clothing store has at least one of these, but Ashley doesn’t know it.

_ _ T T I _ G
R O O _

Nathaniel blows it w/ SITTING ROOF.

F _ T T I N G

Lauren finally gets FITTING ROOM. The Tuesday trio…

$2K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

_ I _ _ – S I _ E

Nathaniel takes some BITE-SIZE CANDY.

FEATURED SS: Sleep.com
Tues./Thurs. Gift Tag: Beyond the Rack

Round 1: PHRASE

He first calls a $900 R, but BANKRUPTs near TD just as quick. Second, Lauren puts up a $500 T, but the same BANKRUPT gets her too. Third, Ashley digs up a $2,400 N quartet, buys a U, but spins the other normal BANKRUPT to lose $2,150. Nathaniel then puts up a $650 G and a B for the WC…

N _ / T U R N _ N G
B _ _ _ / N _ _

…there’s NO TURNING BACK NOW — he’s solved for $1,150. 

BANKRUPTS: 3 (whole group)

Ashley: $0/Nathaniel: $3,150 WC/Lauren: $1K


Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Lauren leads off on a bad note w/ the same BANKRUPT Ashley spun in the last round (the one near $650). Said red player is second in line w/ the LaT. Third, Nathaniel picks up the SS wedge w/ two T’s, but he buys a bad vowel in E. Lauren next spins her third consecutive BANKRUPT w/ the MDW’s left side. After Ashley squanders another turn w/ the BANKRUPT near $650, Nathaniel proceeds to say three $800 N’s, three A’s, two I’s, a $650 D and an O to clean out the vowels, but here comes the BANKRUPT near TD to take away $9,050 cash & SS plus his WC. Once Lauren says S for sorry while on the 1/2 CAR near $600, Ashley gets her second LaT of the round. Nathaniel then lights up an $1,800 R double, a $3,500 G, a $500 H, and a $1,300 B pair before solving w/ the following…

B A T _ A N / A N D
_ R I G H T

BATMAN AND ROBIN WRIGHT bring him another $7,100.

DUDS: E (Nathaniel), S (Lauren)
LaTs: 2 (Ashley)
BANKRUPTS: 4 (Lauren 2x, one each by the others)

Ashley: BAD LUCK/Nathaniel: $10,250/Lauren: $1K

Repeating Classic Bonus Puzzle: A PASSING FANCY


PP/Express Round: PERSON

Ashley insta-BANKRUPTs on the other side of the MDW (both ladies now have three of those). Nathaniel secondly takes a $600 T, three E’s, an A, the sole dud vowel of O via FP, two $700 R’s, and a $600 S…

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

…he may have left out the C’s and D’s, but he’s solve for $2,100 and the chance to meet a CERTIFIED SCUBA DIVER on his trip to Villa Being in TOBAGO worth $9,240.

SOLE DUD: O (Nathaniel)

Ashley: ROTTEN LUCK/Nathaniel: $21,590 cash & Tobago/Lauren: $1K


$3K Tossup: THING

T H _ / D E _ _ D I _ G
_ _ _ _ _ _

I don’t think this is THE DECIDING FACTOR of the game, but Nathaniel’s got that one.

Round 4: WAYD?

This round’s all Nathaniel — he calls a $5K G, an I, two E’s, the obvious $700 N, an O, three $600 T’s, three A’s to finish off the vowels, a FP K, a $650 H a $700 R and a $550 L.

T A K I N G / T H E
E _ _ A L A T O R

He’s TAKING THE ESCALATOR to $8,900 and $33,490 overall.

GT: $38,990
BANKRUPT TRASH (WC not factored): $12,600 cash & SS


$100K Bonus Round
The * envelope calls out Nathaniel’s name.

Category: THING
I think I know the first word already…

_ _ _ S L E _

CHDA gives him…

_ A _ S L E _

…unfortunately for him, the $45K will stay wrapped up inside some PAISLEY FABRIC.

    The wheel sure was rough tonight. Nathaniel sure made a great effort, though.

    My rating: 7


  2. ant0824 February 24, 2016 / 4:06 am

    My rating: 4 because of #1: Bankrupt of $12,600 and #2: A loss of $45K in the Bonus Round.


    • ant0824 February 24, 2016 / 4:09 am

      But when I looked at his Total of $33K, my rating had increased to a low 7
