WoF Recap: October 6, 2016


$1K Tossup: THINGS

_ E _ K L Y
_ _ _ C I A L S

We collect our WEEKLY SPECIALS in the mail, and Pati has solved to strike first blood among this panel…

Pati Wenthe: co. school system worker for the deaf & voiceover personality from Middleburg, FL

Ed Abato: ES principal who gave his late father a kidney from Andover, Nj

Albertine Stewart: fitness mgmt. student & retired A.F. member of 20 yrs. who lived around the North Pole at some time from Chicago

$2K Tossup: PLACE

R _ E _ _ V A T _ O N
_ _ _ K

Pati, there’s no such thing as a RESERVATION PARK. Ed takes control w/ RESERVATION DESK.

Round 1: TITLE

First on his letter list are a $900 T, a $650 H, three E’s and A’s, two R’s for the SS wedge (this is from Furniture of America), but then the LaT. Albertine secondly strikes out w/ N. Pati thirdly takes a $1,300 D pair, but then buys a worthless O. Afterwards…

T H E / D E _ _ _

_ E A R _ / _ R A D A

…Ed solves “THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA” for $8,050 cash & SS, and $10,050 overall.

DUDS: N (Albertine), O (Pati)


Mystery/Crossword Round: LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN

Albertine insta-BANKRUPTs next to $650. Second in Pati‘s favor are a $1,300 pair of T’s, two E’s, an A, but then the MDW’s left side to hand over $800. Going Ed’s way third are three S’s for the MDW, a $700 R, an I, and four N’s for the creditcards.com gift tag. We have…

He solves the (seven) SEAS, CONTINENTS, WONDERS for $3,450 cash & GT.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (ladies)

Pati: $1K/Ed: $13,500 cash & prizes/Albertine: ZERO


PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Pati‘s first moves are three $550 T’s, an E and two I’s, but the BANKRUPT near $3,500 goes wild on her and Ed (she loses $1,150 while he has to give back the MDW). Albertine‘s up next w/ a $1,650 H trio, a $1,300 S pair, two O’s, but then A for awful (the only bad one of this board). After Pati says N for no while on EXPRESS, Ed takes the $650 R and a single L while on EXPRESS before GOING ABOARD.

His Bank So Far: $1,650
Next Choices: two D’s, C, last consonant of K

T H I S / S H O _ L D

    Why did Ed pick the H and O? Oh boy…he still did a good job.
