$1K Tossup: PHRASE

S A _ E / A N D
_ E C _ _ _

Edward’s SAFE AND SECURE. Final vets this week…

Edward Williams: Adams Middle School teacher who retired from the Army after 26 years (20 years active duty, six years National Guard; he served in Operation Desert Shield) from Arlington, TX

Dan Pugsley: retired shift supervisor who spent four years of active duty in the Coast Guard from Jacksonville, FL

Alex Thompson: biology student who served in the Air Force for four years (she worked in supplying for the F-16 fighter squadron) from Imlay, MI (it’s near Flint)

$2K Tossup: WAYD?

T _ _ _ I N G
T H _ / W A T _ R S

Dan was TESTING THE WATERS for control. And the sears wedge was in play for the third and final time this week.

Round 1 : THING

He struck out on the spot w/ S. Second, Alex had the same result w/ an R call while she’s on the sears wedge. Third, Edward called up a $500 T, bought two E’s, but then repeated the R. Dan tried again w/ a $2,500 H, a $1,200 pair of C’s, but then the LaT. Alex next spun a $1,200 pair of N’s, buys two O’s, but then BANKRUPTed near $650 to lose $950. Edward follows w/ a $700 L, an $800 G, but then a bad I buy. After Dan BANKRUPTed near TD to lose $3,700…

_ _ _ _ N C E _
T E C H N O L O G _

Alex got the latest in ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY, so everybody was on the board that time. 

DUDS: S (Dan), R (Alex), I (Edward)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Dan, Alex)
SOLE DQ: Edward’s R recall


Mystery/Crossword Round: DO YOU READ ME?

Alex got started w/ a $600 R, a $900 S, an E, but the I failed somebody again. Edward secondly captured a $3,500 N, but he then bought the other dud vowel of this board (A). Third, Dan missed w/ T while on the Firehouse Subs gift tag. Back to Alex who came up w/ an M for the sears wedge, four O’s, and a B while on the MW near $650. Surprisingly, she gambled $1,250 and the sears wedge…it paid off! WOW. Next are a $600 K, the last vowel of U, but then a CRITICAL DUD of D to leave $19,100 cash & SS on the table. Edward then lit up a $900 H, and $7K pairs of C’s and P’s before we finally got to see this board…

/   (O)  /    /    /     /  (P)  /  (N)
/   (K)  /    /    /     /  (_) /  (U)

…he solved BOOK, HOROSCOPE, COPY and MENU for $18,150!

DUDS: I (Alex), A (Edward), T (Dan), D (Alex)

Dan: $2K/Alex: $1K/Edward: $19,150



First, Edward said a surprising dud of S while on the Wild Card. Second in Dan’s direction were a $600 T, a $500 R, two E’s and I’s, but then H for hush. Third in line, Alex chose three $700 N’s, twin A’s, a $900 M, four L’s to add $2,400 more, a $650 B, but the D stopped her again while she was on the F.S. gift tag. Edward then SPINGLED for a $550 Y..

B L _ E / M A R L I N / &
Y E L L _ _ _ I N / T _ N A

…he would see a BLUE MARLIN & YELLOWFIN TUNA on his trip to the Crocodile Bay Resort in COSTA RICA worth $9,270.

DUDS: S (Edward), H (Dan), D (Alex)

Dan: $2K/Alex: $1K/Edward: $28,970 cash & C.R.


$3K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

S W E E _
C H E R R _ / _ _ E

Dan, there’s NO such thing as SWEET CHERRY ALE. Alex then took a piece of some SWEET CHERRY PIE.

Speed-Up: PERSON

The last FS of the week was $1,650. A null cycle was edited out after the purchase of two E’s. The M was filled in next…

_ R _ _ L E M
S _ L _ E R

Alex the PROBLEM SOLVER earned another $6,600.

AIRED DUDS: T (Dan), N (Edward)

Dan: $2K/Alex: $10,600/Edward: $28,970 cash & C.R.

GT: $41,570


$100K Bonus Round
Edward landed on the same wedge where Stormy from Monday landed on — the N of WIN.

Category: THINGS
The singular form of this answer costed a lady $50K towards the very end of 2009…
