FEATURED SS: Beyond the Rack

Round 1: THING

He gets started w/ a $1,200 pair of S’s, three T’s to add $2,100, three E’s, a couple $550 R’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $4,150. Second, Karla obtains the WC w/ two H’s, but next is D for dud. Third, Rebecca calls out an $800 N, a $650 K, and a single I, but the LaT stops her. After Joe spins up the other normal BANKRUPT, Karla puts up a $600 C, three U’s, an A, a $900 L, and the last vowel of O, but the MDW’s right side forces her to give up $1,750 and her WC. Rebecca then just solves…

_ A _ O U S
S C U L _ T U R E
T H E / T H I N K E R

FAMOUS SCULPTURE “THE THINKER” is right for 12 Benjamins.

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Karla‘s up first w/ an R for the 1/2 CAR near $600, four E’s, three $900 T’s, an A, two I’s, but then S for sorry. Over to Rebecca w/ the calling of a $650 C, two $600 B’s, a $650 G and an H while on the MW near $650. Her $2,500 gamble…fails. Joe then puts up a $550 P, a $650 F, and the last consonant of an $800 Y…

B E A _ T Y
T I P
_ F / T H E
