_ T O C K _
& / _ _ _ _ S

Rainie has her first two grand in STOCKS & BONDS.

FEATURED FL TRIP: Beacon South Beach in Miami

Crossword Round: ON FIRE!

Here she goes w/ a T for the MDW, three S’s for $2,400, an E and three A’s, a $650 R, two O’s, and an I to clean out the vowel shop. She follows w/ three FP M’s, a $1,200 pair of H’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to forfeit $4,750 and the MDW. Over to Edward w/ an $1,800 pair of C’s, two L’s for the WC, a $700 W, but then the same normal BANKRUPT to give up $3,500 and the WC. Karline then SPINGLES for a $900 G…

–     –    –    –   –        (O)  –    –  (I)
–     –   –     –   –        (G)  –    – (C)
–   (M)(A)(T)(C)(H)(E)(S)   –      (_)

…she lights a WICK for a $100 bonus.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (those before Karline)

Mystery Round: WAYD?

Edward instantly lands on the MW near $650 and call up an R before taking the obvious gamble…OOPS. Second, Karline gets the same normal BANKRUPT she got before. Third, Rainie lights up three N’s for the Miami trip, I and O singles, two obvious G’s for $1,400 more, and the remaining non-U vowels. We have…

_ E E _ I N G
A N / O R A N G E

…she may be PEELING AN ORANGE in Miami, because she’s won that trip plus another $1,900.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (again, those before Karline)

Rainie: $10,400 cash & Miami/Edward: ZIP/Karline: $2K


PP/Express Round: ON THE MAP

Karline leads off w/ two T’s for the SwimOutlet.com gift tag, but then R for roadblock. Rainie secondly spots an $800 S, buys an E and four A’s, but then repeats the R. Edward thirdly puts up a $600 C, buys an O, but the same normal BANKRUPT strikes again to the tune of $350. Afterwards…

A T L A _ T _ _ / &

_ A _ _ _ _ _
O _ E A _ S

Karline wins another $2K cash & GT plus a trip to a place that borders the ATLANTIC & PACIFIC OCEANSPANAMA on that caravan.com tour.

SOLE DUD: R (Karline; repeated by Rainie)

Rainie: $10,400 cash & Miami/Edward: ZILCH/Karline: $10K cash & prizes

$3K Tossup: PERSON

_ R O _ _ _ N G
G U A R _

Up to $13K Karline goes after she solves CROSSING GUARD.


Next from her mouth are four T’s for $2,400, three E’s, four FP A’s to quickly clean out the vowel shop, $1K pairs of H’s and K’s, a $550 C, but then a CRITICAL DUD of P to leave $4,700 on the table. As for Rainie…

T H A T / _ A _ / T A K E

T H E / C A K E

…she says “THAT MAY TAKE THE CAKE” to be $1,600 off the other lady.

SOLE DUD: P (Karline)


This $1,500 FS will decide the match between the two ladies. A C is lit up on top…

D _ C _ R _ T _ _ _
P _ L L _ _ S

Karline gets DECORATIVE PILLOWS for three grand and the win.

DUDS: N (Karline), M (Edward)

Rainie: $11,400 cash & Miami/Edward: $1K GOOSEEGG/Karline: $16K cash & prizes

GT: $28,400
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. extras and MW risk): $8,600

$100K Bonus Round
The C envelope is what Karline must take.

Category: PHRASE
To start this biggie…

_ N _ _ R _ _ T _ _ N
_ _ E R L _ _ _

PMCO might do it for her…

_ N _ O R M _ T _ _ N
O _ E R L O _ _

…she’s able to solve the INFORMATION OVERLOAD problem (though she didn’t get the first word right away), so she ends up w/ exactly 50 grand.
