_ _ _ _ _ _ Y _ _ _ D

Doug & Annette goof w/ DISNEYLAND.

F _ _ _ _ S Y L _ N D

Tama & Randy come to my favorite area of FANTASYLAND. Wednesday’s six-pack…

Annette gets out an ICE CREAM MAKER.

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.


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)
(K) (I)(T)(T)(E)(N)
(E)  /    /   /    /    (_)

…they get the $2K minimum for solving BIKE, PONY, PUPPY, KITTEN.

DUDS: R (Duttons), M (Johnsons), S (Wolffs), A (Duttons), L (Johnsons), G (Wolffs)

Wolffs: $2K/Duttons: $6,400/Johnsons: ZERO


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.

DUDS: S (Johnsons), T (Wolffs), U (Duttons)

Wolffs: $2K/Duttons: $6,400/Johnsons: $9,440 cash & Anaheim


$3K Tossup: WAYD?

L _ A D _ _ _
B Y / E _ _ _ P L E

Easy one, IMO…

PGHO sounds like a good idea…

P O S _ T _ _ E
O P _ N _ O N

…I sure am gonna give my POSITIVE OPINION about this result, and the $34K is finally won for the first time this season.

    The show suddenly got turned around after a low scoring game. The Wolffs solved the BR puzzle to not only snapped an 8 BR loss streak and avoided the Wolffs from being the lowest winning champion.
