WoF Recap: April 29, 2016

Thanks to Mike’s $100K win last night, the weekly total thus far is $326,380 and we’ve already topped the third “America’s Game” of the season. Let’s see if we can end the month w/ a $400K+ weekly total.


$1K Tossup: ON THE MAP

R E D / _ O C K
C _ _ _ _ _

Jack spots RED ROCK CANYON. Last players this month…

Jack Lechner: film professor at Columbia Univ., documentary producer and song/playwriter from NYC
Kristen Schuerle: physician from Redondo Beach (one of her daughters, Clara, shares a birthday w/ Vanna)
Tasha Easter: sr. mgr. for a large banking organization from Glen Allen, VA

$2K Tossup: THING

O _ _ R I C H
E _ _

Kristen gathers an OSTRICH EGG.

TONIGHT’S TRIP: Tanque Verde Ranch in AZ


Both women BANKRUPT right out of the gate (Kristen near $650, Tasha near TD). Going to Jack already who calls up a T for the WC, four E’s, I, three $500 N’s, four O’s, three $650 F’s, and two A’s to clean out the vowels. But after a $700 S is the LaT. Kristen next picks a $550 L, but she then spins the same BANKRUPT Tasha got. That lady at the end then puts up a $550 D, an R for the AZ trip, and an $1,800 C trio. Board…

A N D / F A N C _ –
C _ E C _ I N _

…nobody should be doing some activity called FOOTLOOSE AND FANCY-FREE CHECKING,  but she’s solved for a total of $9,140 cash & AZ (the trip’s worth $6,290).

SOLE LaT: Jack
BANKRUPTS: 3 (ladies including two by Kristen)

Jack: $1K WC/Kristen: $2K/Tasha: $9,140 cash & AZ


Mystery Round: LIVING THINGS

Tasha picks up the 1/2 CAR near $600 right away w/ N, buys three A’s, and quickly gets the other 1/2 CAR w/ a D. Next on her road are a $1,300 T’s, two E’s, a $1,300 R pair, but then the BANKRUPT near $3,500 to let $18,065 cash & Fiesta go up in smoke. Jack then says a pair of S’s and goes for what’s under the MW near $650$$$

_ E E R _ A T S / A N D
_ A R T _ _ _ S

…and solves MEERKATS AND WARTHOGS to win it.


Jack: $11K WC/Kristen: $2K/Tasha: $9,140 cash & AZ


PP/Express Round: PHRASE

It’s all Jack here — he picks a $1,400 pair of T’s, all five vowels in one fell swoop, four $700 N’s and three $500 R’s…

_ T A R T
_ _ A N N I N _ / _ O U R
_ R E A _ / N O _

…not only did you win $4,450, sir, you should START PLANNING YOUR BREAK NOW — you’ve won a trip Divi Dutch Village in ARUBA worth  $7,290.


Jack: $22,740 cash & Aruba WC/Kristen: $2K/Tasha: $9,140 cash & AZ


$3K Tossup: TV TITLE

A _ _ _ _ _ _ ‘ _
_ _ _ / _ _ L _ _ T

Jack quickly IDs “AMERICA’S GOT TALENT”.


Round 4: EVENT

Next from his mouth are a $500 T, four E’s, but then A for awful. Kristen secondly finds a $900 S, a $500 R, but then buys the other dud vowel of this board (O). Third, Tasha wastes a turn w/ the BANKRUPT near $5K. After Jack says another baddie of D, Kristen fills in an $800 L, buys three I’s, but then craps out w/ P…

E _ _ L _ S I _ E
I _ T E R _ I E _

…and Tasha doesn’t need to do an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW, because she’s now in five-figure territory.

DUDS: A (Jack), O (Kristen), D (Jack)

Jack: $25,740 cash & Aruba WC/Kristen: $2K/Tasha: $10,140 cash & AZ



We’ve hit the big one this time!  Two Y’s show their faces in this 10-letter hyphenated answer…

L _ _ _ Y –
D _ _ _ Y

…and that LOVEY-DOVEY man named Jack has added another $12K to his big haul.

AIRED DUDS: T (Kristen), H (Jack), F (Tasha)

: $37,740 cash & Aruba WC/Kristen: $2K/Tasha: $10,140 cash & AZ

GT: $49,880

GHPOD…results in a GAME OVER, and he couldn’t get any QUICK FIXES to win the $45K. That means Andrea from Monday is off the hook.

    Nothing to be disappointing about tonight’s show. However we set the new season high in winnings this week. Lowlight: Big Bankrupt and the $45K loss. Jack however won $37K and top dollar final spin.

    My rating: 7
