Susan is two for two saying “MOOSE ON THE LOOSE”.

_ _ R _ E T

…he imagines a NO RIGHT TURN ON RED CARPET for $12,800 cash & FL (the trip’s worth $6,550).



Mystery Round: FOOD & DRINK

Fresh off his nice R1 win, James gets started w/ a $700 T, two E’s, an R for that MDW, and two A’s, followed by a $650 N, an I, three $500 S’s, but then the BANKRUPT near big money to lose $2,100 and the MDW. Over to Terryl who gets both 1/2 CARs (she landed on the one near $600 first) w/ W and two M’s, respectively…

S M _ _ E _ / S A _ M _ N
W I T _ / _ A _ E R S

…but she blows the last word big time w/ WAFERS to let $1,500 and the Fiesta go to waste. Susan then lights up C, P and K singles ($700 for the K, $500 for the other two)….

S M _ K E _ / S A _ M _ N
W I T _ / C A P E R S

…she dines one some SMOKED SALMON WITH CAPERS for the 17 Benjamins.

SOLE DQ: Terryl’s blown solve

PP/Express Round: PLACE

Terryl‘s road to redemption begins w/ a $1,200 pair of N’s, two E’s, an $800 S, four A’s, a $600 R, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to forfeit her own $2,100. Susan secondly goes aboard the EXPRESS after calling a B.

Next Choices: two L’s…two T’s…C…CRASH w/ K ($6K down the drain)

James then puts up $600 M and a $500 D singles to leave only vowels remaining….

…back in the day, kids went on “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego” to take a GEOGRAPHY QUIZ…and he nails it even w/o any help at the bottom! Too bad we have a $33K sweep this week (only 3rd time this season), so he leaves w/ $53,352 cash & trips.

    James got WAY less than he deserved for that solve.

    My rating: 7

    I am only interested in the 5k every day. is there any way you can show that at the top of the page? also why do you delay something like this and put it on your page few days after? i have several spin numbers and need to know cause if i miss it i need to know cause WOF only gives you a 24 hr window. i really need the money cause i’m on social security living in a nursing home but i want to move and get an apartment.
