Tom triples up w/ FASHION BOUTIQUE.

TONIGHT’S SS: Beyond the Rack

Round 1: THINGS

He gets started w/ a $2,400 S quartet, a $600 T, two A’s, but then a bad I buy. Second, Wendi calls up a $500 N, but the BANKRUPT near TD takes it right back. Third, Aisha says C for crud. Tom’s next turn as well as $2,500 is taken away by the other normal BANKRUPT. After Wendi says L for loss, Aisha puts up an R for that MDW, an M for the SS, three E’s, and a $600 H. We have…

BANKRUPTS: 2 (Wendi, Tom)

Wendi: $0/Aisha: $6,850 cash & SS MDW/Tom: $3K

Mystery Round: SAME NAME

Wendi‘s first call of T is no good. Second, Aisha lights up two N’s for the 1/2 CAR near $900, an A, three D’s for the ticketmaster gift tag, and three O’s, before the LaT strikes. Third, Tom strikes out w/ R. Wendi‘s next w/ an S while on the MW near $650 and under that is…$$$. But after a FP E, the L fails her again. Aisha then uncovers a $650 B…

Our current leader is off and running w/ a $500 R, a $650 S, three E’s, and five A’s, followed by a $650 T, three FP O’s, and four C’s for the WC, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $3,300 and all her cardboard pieces. Tom won’t take any chances…
