The Wellses solve LATITUDE & LONGITUDE.

Round 1: PLACES

They begin the proceedings w/ $600 W and D singles, two O’s, a $2,100 R trio, but then the sole dud vowel of I. Second, the Hickses call ups a $500 L, three A’s, a FP E, but then a not-so-good consonant of G. The Bigelows are third in line w/ a $1,950 S trio, two U’s, and an $1,800 pair of T’s…

Mystery Round: SAME NAME

The Hickses instantly LOSE A TURN. The Bigelows secondly take a $500 N, two D’s for the RICARDO Luggage, two A’s, a FP E, a $3,500 R, a single O, and two I’s to clean out the vowels. But after a $600 P is the LaT. The Wellses then put up a $1,300 B pair and a $3,500 Y…

    The Hicks had some quirky moments, but I’m glad they won their BR.
