Mystery/Crossword Round: ALL THUMBS

Jennifer‘s first letters this evening are a $1,200 pair of T’s, three E’s, but then S for sorry. Second, Tony takes a $700 L, but then A for awful. Third, Leailia gets DQed for repeating the S while on TD. Jennifer‘s second turn and her remaining $950 is taken away by the BANKRUPT near $650. Tony next spots the X while he’s on the MW near LaT. His $450 gamble…doesn’t pay off. Leailia follows w/ two D’s for the Vermont Country Store gift tag, three I’s to clean out the vowels, a $700 W, but then a baddie of G while on the WC. After Jennifer BANKRUPTs the same way she did before, Tony uncovers a $10,500 H trio and a $700 K. The words are as follows…

–   – (T)(W)(I)(D)(D)(L)(E)

    While we got a BR losing week thanks to the $40K loss in the BR, the Main was a whole lot better thanks to three big round wins.

    My rating: 7
