WoF Recap: February 13, 2017

The Disney weeks have been not-so-magical in the past few seasons especially the one we had early this season. Can they finally get it together this week?

The Shrocks solve ASPIRING ARTIST.

WEEKLONG DISNEY TRIP: Bahamas cruise worth $8,333

Round 1: FOOD & DRINK

They strike out on the spot w/ S. Second, the Borundas call up an $800 N, but then buy the sole dud vowel of O. Third, the Hamiltons take three L’s for the Luggage Factory gift tag, a $700 C, three A’s, a $500 V, and the other three vowels. But after a $550 K is a baddie of M. The Shrocks follow w/ a FP Y, but then the BANKRUPT near $2,500 to lose the 5 Benjamins. The Borundas then put up three F’s for $1,650 and eat up this…


…for their first $2,200.

DUDS: S (Shrocks), O (Borundas), M (Hamiltons)


Crossword/Mystery Round: _____ SHOW

The Borundas are first w/ two T’s and go for what’s under the MW near LaTZIPPO. Second, the S fails a couple again, this time w/ the Hamiltons. Third, the Shrocks put up a $650 R, four A’s, but then P for phooey. The Borundas try again w/ an $800 M, but the I proves to be the sole dud vowel. After the Hamiltons LaT out, the Shrocks put up a $600 G, but the MDW’s right side takes that amount right back. Next for the Borundas are an E but then F for flunk while on TD. Once the Hamiltons miss again w/ H, the Shrocks put up a $500 B and two O’s…

(G)   /   /   (B)(R)(O)(A)(_)(_)(A)(_)
(M) /    /   (A)
(E)  /   /    (T)

…they complete the grid w/ BROADWAY & AUTO to double their two grand.

DUDS: S (Hamiltons), P (Shrocks), I (Borundas), F (Borundas), H (Hamiltons)
SOLE LaT: Hamiltons
BANKRUPTS: 2 (non-Hamilton families)


PP/Express Round: PHRASE

It’s all the Hamiltons — they pick two T’s for $1,600, two E’s, three $650 H’s, O, a $600 S, and two I’s.

T H E / _ _ _ _ / O _
T H E / I _ I S H

…they’re about to have THE LUCK OF THE IRISH, because they’ve won their first $3,400 and a $13K Adventure by Disney trip to DUBLIN, IRELAND.

Borundas: $2,200/Hamiltons: $16,400 cash & Ireland/Shrocks: $4K


$3K Tossup: SHOW BIZ

_ R A _ O !

_ _ A _ _ !

BRAVO! BRAVO! The Borundas solve for a new total of $5,200.

Speed-Up: WAYD?

Consonants are worth $1,500 each. A T said midway through…

S _ L _ I N G

    I know why Andy the Disney weeks has not been so magical, and Monday show did not do that resulting in a disappointing show with its 3rd BR loss in a row.

    The PP was definitely the only good part of this episode.

    My rating: 6

        Thanks! It was a lot of fun. It’s cool to see that you do this. We’ve been looking for a video for people to watch who didn’t get to watch that night. This is awesome!
