WoF Recap: November 28, 2016 — START OF SSS ’16


$1K Tossup: PEOPLE

_ _ P P _
_ _ _ _ _ R E N

We would love to give away lots of stuff to some HAPPY CHILDREN like Shiela & Rebekah. First three family pairs this week…

Shelia & Rebekah Payne (mom/daughter): former orig. from Owensboro, KY and Louisville, latter from Jacksonville, FL

Maurice & Veronika Williams (son/mom): he’s a human resources coord. for a transportation co. in Seattle while she’s a retired human resources mgr. for a large corporation

John & James Tweedie (bros.) John’s a chiropractor from Bolivar, MO while James writes & does acting

$2K Tossup: PHRASE

E N J _ _
_ O _ R / _ T _ Y

The Paynes stare into space, but they blow it anyway w/ ENJOY YOUR CITY.

E N J O _
_ O _ R / _ T _ Y

ENJOY YOUR STAY on this show, Williamses. As expected, the $7,500 SS and GT from sears are on the wheel for this two-week period.

Round 1: WAYD?

A $500 R starts them off, but the BANKRUPT near $650 takes that amount right back. Second, the Tweedies get the exact same fate. Third, the Paynes call up a $7,500 N trio, three I’s, four A’s, an O, a $1,200 pair of G’s, and the last vowel of two E’s. They follow w/ a $500 S, a $1,400 T pair, two H’s for the SS, and a $1,200 pair of D’s before they see…

_ I G H T I N G
_ A N D _ E S / O N / A
_ I R T H D A _ / _ A _ E

…winning $11,800 plus that spree was like LIGHTING CANDLES ON A BIRTHDAY CAKE.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (other pairs)

Williamses: $2K/Tweedies: $0/Paynes: $20,300 cash & SS


Mystery/Crossword Round: LET’S DECORATE

The bros are off to a $10,500 start w/ three T’s, followed by an O, but then a bad I buy. Second, the Paynes take a $1,200 pair of S’s, three E’s, and the same number of A’s to clean out the vowel shop, but the other normal BANKRUPT cleans them out of $700. The Williamses then put up a $1,950 R trio and a $1K pair of N’s before they try to solve…

/    /  (T)  /      /    /    /    /   (S)
/  (O)(R)(N)(A)(_)(E)(N)(T)(S)
/    /  (E)  /    /     /    /    /   (A)
(_)(R)(E)(A)(T)(_)   /    /   (R)

TREE, ORNAMENTS, WREATH & STAR are correct for $2,950.

SOLE DUD: I (Tweedies)

Williamses: $4,950/Tweedies: ZIP/Paynes: $20,300 cash & SS


PP/Express Round: SONG LYRICS

T for trap is how the Paynes start. Second for the Williamses are a $650 R, five E’s, and three N’s while on EXPRESS before they GO ABOARD.

Current Bank: $3,400
Next Choices: four S’s…two D’s…O…F…three A’s…C…three M’s…three L’s (vowels remaining)

_ / C A N / S E E
F O R / M _ L E S
A N D / M _ L E S
A N D / M _ L E S

…they solve The Who’s “I CAN SEE FOR MILES AND MILES AND MILES” for $16,900 plus the caravan.com PANAMA TOURS for a total of $27,900 that round.

Williamses: $32,850 cash & tours/Tweedies: ZILCH/Paynes: $20,300 cash & SS

Round 4: THINGS

Next on their list are a $600 S, a $1,950 T trio, E, three A’s, a $500 R, but then the LaT. The Williamses then put up a $1,200 C pair…

A _ C _ E _ T
A R T _ _ A C T S

…they solve ANCIENT ARTIFACTS for an $800 bonus.

SOLE LaT: Paynes

Speed-Up: ON THE MAP

$1,500 per consonant here. The H is established as the second letter of the answer…
