The Beckses secondly repeat the C. Third, the Gardners pick up the WC w/ an L and buy the last vowel of two I’s, then they make a bad use of their WC on a $600 space and call up K & T singles to complete the grid…

(P)(O)(P)(C)(O)(R)(N) – – (I)

Mystery Round: FUN & GAMES

The Beckses lead off w/ a $500 T, four R’s for the WDW trip, a single E, but then the sole dud vowel of A. But they quickly get their turn back after the other couples each get a penalty space (Gardners on LaT, Garcias on the BANKRUPT near TD); their next picks are four $650 N’s, the other three vowels, and pairs of G’s, H’s and S’s ($800, $500 and $550, respectively)…

    Tsk Tsk. Why did you Gardners used a WC in Round one? That mistake cost them the BR and costed us a 5 game win streak.
