WoF Recap: March 31, 2016

I’m sorry for the delay of this recap, but I’m very upset that the troll whocares775 wrote a threatening message and wanted to kill me, so I had no choice but to report this incident to the police in the area where he lives. This has gone way too far. I will NOT rest easy until this guy is captured, period.



I _ T R A M U R A L
_ C T I V I _ _ E _

Alice solves INTRAMURAL ACTIVITIES, and these were your classmates on this Thursday…

Alice Kim: USC student studying business administration with a minor in Chinese (she also speaks Korean and Spanish) who interns at an event planning company
Jacob Heddings: College of Southern Maryland studying computer science and works at church youth group
Elizabeth Kirk: University of Delaware double majoring in psychology and communications and in a Public Relations Student Society

$2K Tossup: THING

S T _ _ A M I N G
_ U _ I C

I’m STREAMING MUSIC from an app such as Spotify, and Jacob has the right answer for control.

TRIP WEDGE: Gates Hotel in Key West

Round 1: PERSON

He quickly strikes out w/ T. Second, Elizabeth calls up a $650 S, but has the same fate w/ an L call. Third, Alice also duds out w/ R. Back to Jacob who picks two $800 N’s, buys an O, but then BANKRUPTs near TD to lose $1,350. Elizabeth next tries a $1,300 pair of M’s and buys two A’s before she tries to solve this…

_ _ _ / M A N
O N / _ A M _ _ S

…she may not be the BIG (wo)MAN ON CAMPUS, but she’s solved for $1,700.

DUDS: T (Jacob), L (Elizabeth), R (Alice)

Elizabeth: $1,700/Alice: $1K/Jacob: $2K


Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

We have an insta-dud, this time w/ Elizabeth and her R call. Second Alice comes up w/ a two $650 T’s, and a triple S’s while on the MW next to $650. Her $1,300 gamble…is NO GOOD. Third, Jacob uncovers an N for the 1/2 CAR next to $600, but then buys the sole dud vowel of A. But he quickly gets his turn back after both girls say baddies while they’re on a prize (Elizabeth said C on Florida, Alice chose L on the Phillips 66 gift tag). He buys two O’s to clean out the cash, and gives back his plate to the BANKRUPT near $650. After Elizabeth says her third straight dud of M, Alice BANKRUPTs on the MDW’s right side. Jacob then uncovers the SL of three Q’s via the MW next to LaT, and buys the other three vowels. The near-complete board…

Q U O T E S / &
Q U I _ _ E S

…he solves QUESTIONS, QUOTES & QUIZZES for $3,250.

DUDS: R (Elizabeth), A (Jacob), C (Elizabeth), L (Alice), M (Elizabeth)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (Alice 2x, Jacob)

Elizabeth: $1,700/Alice: $1K/Jacob: $5,250

Classic Bonus Puzzle: PHRASE (1997)
Here’s a man who chose HMGA…

H _ G S / T H E
R _ A _

…but he still didn’t get HUGS THE ROAD.


PP/Express Round: FUN & GAMES

Alice gets started w/ a $1,200 pair of N’s, an $800 G, two I’s, and an O, followed by a $900 L, three $600 S’s, a $500 T, an E, but then the sole dud vowel of A for awful. Jacob then picks up the WC w/ a couple R’s, two $600 F’s and the last vowel of U…

_ _ / F I R S T
S U R F I N G / L E S S O N

…I’m not gonna have MY FIRST SURFING LESSON anytime soon, but this guy will soon get one on his trip to the Kaanapali Beach Hotel in MAUI worth $6,274.

SOLE DUD: A (Alice; $4,700 left behind)

Elizabeth: $1,700/Alice: $1K/Jacob: $13,474 cash & trip WC


$3K Tossup: ON THE MAP

D _ _ _ _ _ A / _ _ _ _ H
_ _ _ R _ _ _

Jacob blows it w/ DAYTONA BEACH, GEORGIA (really, buddy?).

D _ _ _ O _ A / _ _ _ _ H
_ _ _ R _ _ _


Round 4: WAYD?

It’s all Elizabeth — she picks four N’s for $2,400, three E’s and I’s, two obvious G’s and three T’s at $500 apiece, and a couple O’s to clean out the vowels…

_ I G N I N G / O N / T _ E
_ O T T E _ / _ I N E

…she’s SIGNING ON THE DOTTED LINE for $4,150.


Elizabeth: $8,850/Alice: $1K/Jacob: $13,474 cash & trip WC

Round 5: PHRASE

Another $1,500 FS for your pleasre. Three T’s and a couple S’s in…

T _ _ S / _ _ S T / _ _
T _ _ / _ _ _ _ _

…he admits “THIS MUST BE THE PLACE” for $3,000 worth of icing.

Elizabeth: $8,850/Alice: $1K/Jacob: $16,474 cash & trip WC

GT: $26,324
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. plate): $2,650

CHDA and M just add a pair of this…
