$1K Tossup: WAYD?

W R I T _ N G
_ O _ T _ A R D S

Molly could be the one WRITING POSTCARDS, or maybe these opponents…

Molly Kershaw: state senator from Williamsville, IL
Tim Walsh: actor/comedian from L.A. (or (orig. from South Jersey)
Megan Danner: Southwestern Univ. chaplain from Round Rock, TX

$2K Tossup: THING

Molly gets the tripler w/ STADIUM SEATING.

FEATURED TRIP: lisbon.BUZZ worth $8,150
Mon./Wed./Fri. Gift Tag: Bedandbreakfast.com

Round 1: RHYME TIME

She gets that GT right away w/ three T’s, but that and the $1,500 are taken right back by the BANKRUPT near $650. Second, Tim spins his way to four FP E’s, three $700 R’s, two A’s, two $800 H’s, and three $500 F’s. Board…

_ _ R _ _ / _ F
A / F E A T H E R

T _ _ E T H E R

…he realizes that BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER for $4,950.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Molly

Megan: $0/Molly: $3K/Tim: $4,950

 

Mystery Round: SAME NAME

That man starts us off w/ a $600 S, three $650 T’s, four E’s, but then the MDW’s left side to lose $2,300. Second, Megan takes a $1,200 pair of R’s, a C four the Portugal trip, two A’s to clean out the vowels, and a G while on the MW near $650 before she obviously declines (good move; that’s the BANKRUPT one). But she then ends up BANKRUPTing near $650 anyway to throw away $10,600 cash & trip. Molly then picks up the 1/2 CAR near $900 w/ a V and a $700 N…

T R A V E _ / &
S E C R E T

…she solves TRAVEL & SECRET AGENT for $1,200.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (Molly’s opponents)

Megan: ZILCH/Molly: $4,200 1/2 CAR/Tim: $4,950

 

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Megan’s next turn doesn’t start well w/ a dud of T. Second in Molly’s direction are a $700 H, four E’s, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to forfeit $450 and her plate. Third for Tim are $600 V and W singles plus a $1,200 pair of R’s, but then a bad I buy. Megan tries again w/ a $1,400 pair of Y’s, three O’s, a $700 L, and two U’s to clean out the vowels. But after a K for the WC is a critical dud of P. Molly then SPINGLES for an $800 N…

_ U N / E V E R Y W H E R E
Y O U / L O O K

…have FUN EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK, ma’am, on your trip to the  RIU Palace Peninsula in CANCUN worth $6,900.

Molly acts like a SNAPPING TURTLE on all those Tossups.

Round 4: AROUND THE HOUSE

Starting her off are a $1,300 pair of S’s, but then a worthless E buy. Second, Tim also strikes out w/ R. Third, Megan insta-BANKRUPTs near $650 to hand over the WC. Molly follows suit w/ two H’s and G’s at $1K a pair, two I’s, three $700 N’s, three $600 T’s…

    Wow. Molly really should’ve won that BR. Otherwise…nice job. (Oh, and SPOILER ALERT: she’s the featured blogger.)

    Big Bankrupt and a BR loss weren’t something we wanted to see.
