Jenn plucks some FORGET-ME-NOTS. Meeting Tuesday’s trio…

The AVERAGE JOE would’ve solved, but Lois blows the bottom word w/ JOY, allowing Jenn to triple up.

Tues./Thurs. Gift Tag: igourmet.com

Crossword Round: IN THE KITCHEN

Her opening letters are a $700 T, four E’s, but then N for no. Second, Matt calls up a $1,950 R trio, but then the sole dud vowel of A for awful. Third, Lois selects a $500 L, but then S for sorry. Jenn tries again w/ a $1,400 C pair, two I’s, but then the LaT. Matt follows suit w/ a $700 P, U, a $500 Y, the last vowel of O, two $600 F’s, a D for the gift tag, a $600 G, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $5,700 cash & GT. Lois then completes the board w/ a $650 H and an $800 K…

(F)   /    /   /   /   (C)(U)(T)(L)(E)(R)(Y)
(O)  /    /   /    /   (H)

…she wins her first $1950.

DUDS: N (Jenn), A (Matt), S (Lois)
SOLE LaT: Jenn
SOLE BANKRUPT: Matt

 

Mystery Round: RHYME TIME

T for trouble is how the sole male starts. Lois secondly picks off an R and goes for what’s under the MW near LaToops. From here, it’s all Jenn — two S’s for the MDW, five N’s for the 1/2 CAR near $900, E, four I’s, and a $1,200 pair of G’s.

_ _ I _ _ E N / _ I N G S
& / _ N I _ N / R I N G S

CHICKEN WINGS & ONION RINGS win her another $3,200.

Lois leads off w/ a $1,300 pair of N’s, two G’s while on EXPRESS (declined), four FP A’s, a $900 L, I, and three E’s, followed by three FP S’s, two $600 T’s, but then the LaT…

Matt: $9,600/Lois: $1,950/Jenn: $13,240 cash & Rome MDW

GT: $24,790
BANKRUPT TRASH: $6,700 cash & GT

MILLION DOLLAR BONUS ROUND #5

Category: PHRASE
Easy one, IMO…

…she’s able to MAKE IT HAPPEN and leaves w/ $47,240 cash & Rome…but she was not even close to hitting the super big one — it was under the S of SPIN.

    It Would’ve Been Awfully Nice If Jenn Rockford Won The Million But Maybe Another Night
