Round 1: FUN & GAMES
The Wolffs get started w/ a $650 S, an E, an $800 R, three A’s, and the same number of I’s to clean out the vowels. But after a $1,400 pair of L’s, the BANKRUPT near $650 cleans them out of $2,100. The Duttons then put up a $2,400 W trio…
_ R A W I _ _ / W I _ _
S I _ E W A L _ / _ _ A L _
…Randy should’ve listened to his wife on spinning again, because he’s very consonatively DRAWING WITH SIDEWALK CHALK.
SOLE BANKRUPT: Wolffs
Wolffs: $2K/Duttons: $4,400/Johnsons: $0
Crossword/Mystery Round: HOLIDAY WISH LIST
The Duttons strike out on the spot w/ R. Second, the Johnsons call up a $1,300 pair of T’s, two E’s, a $700 N, and two I’s, but M for mistake ends their turn. Third, the Wolffs also miss w/ S. The Duttons try again w/a $700 K, but the sole dud vowel of A stops them. The Johnsons follow w/ a $650 B, the other two vowels, but then L for loss while on the MW near LaT. After a baddie of G by the Wolffs, the Duttons then FP three P’s…
(B) / / / / (P)(U)(P)(P)(_)
(I) / / / / (O)
(E) / / / / (_)
…they get the $2K minimum for solving BIKE, PONY, PUPPY, KITTEN.

PP/Express Round: PHRASE
The Johnsons’ first pick of S on EXPRESS stands for sorry. The Wolffs second also dud out w/ T. Third in the Duttons‘ direction are an $1,800 pair of R’s, four E’s, two A’s, a $600 M, two O’s, but then the sole dud vowel of U. The Johnsons then pick a $600 H and two I’s…
_ A _ I _ O R _ I A
H E R E / _ E / _ O M E
…somebody else changes their mind from spinning to solving — it’s Marty who says “CALIFORNIA, HERE WE COME” to get on the board w/ $9,440 in cash & DISNEYLAND.
