We weren’t giving TOO MUCH INFORMATION, but Shanna doesn’t know the last word and Eunice gets control.
TRIP WEDGE: American Cruise Line river cruise
Round 1: PERSON
She duds out on the spot w/ N. Second, John calls up a $1K pair of R’s, buys E and A singles, lights up a $1,300 T pair, but then buys a worthless I. Third, Shanna also strikes out w/ S. Back to Eunice who puts in three H’s for $7,500, four O’s to wipe out the vowel shop, a $550 B, and a $1K pair of L’s before we see…

Mystery Round: SAME NAME
John leads off w/ a $550 R, two E’s, but then T for trap while on the River Cruise. Second, Shanna tacks on a $600 N, six A’s, a $600 S, a $900 L, two $700 K’s, and the last vowel of O before saying a C while on the MW near LaT and declining a $3K gamble (that was the BANKRUPT one). After a $3,500 D…

Shanna insta-BANKRUPTs on the MDW’s left side. Second, Eunice picks up the 1/2 CAR near $900 w/ two S’s, buys an E, but runs into the other MDW BANKRUPT to lose $750 and the plate. Third in line, John takes a $500 R, four A’s, an N for the Beyond the Rack gift tag, and three I’s before the LaT strikes. After Shanna BANKRUPTs again w/ the one near $3,500, Eunice lights up a $1K pair of B’s and four C’s to triple up…

Speed-Up: FOOD & DRINK
$1,600 per consonant this time. Midway in the round, John uncovers the P but flubs the $4,800 solve w/ SPICY CREAM MUSTARD (it fits, but I don’t think there’s such a thing called that). Shanna then puts up the M…
