_ H E N / _ O _
_ O _ E / T O / A / _ O _ _

Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Chris’s first letters here are $900 T and R singles, an E, but then the sole dud vowel of A for awful. Second, Jade gets the MDW w/ an N, but she then misses w/ G while on the MW near LaT. Third, Jeff has the same result w/ C. Christopher tries a $1,300 pair of S’s, buys three I’s, but then hits the BANKRUPT near $650 to forfeit $2,350. Jade next picks the SL bonus of three Q’s for the 1/2 CAR near $900 and buys three U’s. We have…

Q U I R _ _
