WoF Recap: December 4, 2017 — START OF SECRET SANTA ’17

Unlike the last few seasons, this year’s SS will NOT have a Family Week. It’s most likely because we saw the Christmas decorations on the first Disney World week.

EPISODE #6691: SECRET SANTA HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY

$1K Tossup: THINGS

_ _ O _ / T I D _ N _ S

Janine would love GOOD TIDINGS, and so does her opposition…

Janine Brown: married for 38 yrs. from Bothell, WA

Sharon Samuel: has a fraternal twin from Houston

Danny McGinn: firefighter in the Bronx from NYC

$2K Tossup: PHRASE

_ _ _ / A P P L E
_ _ / _ Y / _ Y _

Danny’s probably saying this to his wife during his viewing party, You’re THE APPLE OF MY EYE”.

FEATURED PRIZE FOR THESE TWO WEEKS: $10K
Gift Tag: $1K courtesy of the “WoF Free Play” app

Round 1: WAYD?

Off he goes w/ two T’s for the gift tag, two I’s, a $600 H, four A’s, a W for the $10K, and a couple E’s, but the BANKRUPT near $2,500 triggers a $12,350 disaster. Second, Janine calls up a $1K pair of N’s, a $1,950 G trio, a $600 R, but then F for flunk. Third, Sharon wastes a turn w/ the same BANKRUPT Danny got. Said red player then puts up two P’s for the WC, and a $1,300 pair of M’s before he tries to solve this…

_ _ M I N G / _ P
W I T H / A / G R E A T
G A M E / P _ A N

but he leaves out the next-to-last word, so he’s been disqualified and Janine’s won another $3,550 for COMING UP WITH A GREAT GAME PLAN.

SOLE DUD: F (Janine)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Danny, Sharon)
SOLE DQ: Danny’s blown solve

Mystery/Crossword Round: SANTA’S _______

Janine’s up first w/ a $700 T, A and E singles, and an S for the MW near LaT before she gambles her remaining $200…$$$. But here comes the same normal BANKRUPT to take away $10,200. Second, Sharon strikes out w/ N for negative. Third, Danny requests an R for the 1/2 CAR near $600 (’18 Nissan Versa), two O’s, a $2,400 L trio, the last vowel of I, a $700 B, a $500 Y, and a $650 P. Grid…

–  –    –        (I)  –      (A)

PP/Express Round: LIVING THINGS

The scoreless Sharon starts this crucial round w/ three S’s for $1,800, two R’s to double up, a $600 N, an E, and two A’s, after which she says a $1,300 pair of H’s, a $700 L, three I’s, a $1,400 pair of C’s, and a $500 P.

S E A / _ R C H I N S / &

Consonants are worth $1,600 each. Late in this round, two G’s are requested, but Janine flubs w/ GARTH THE GREMLIN. Sharon next says two M’s, but she also whiffs w/ GUMBY THE GREMLIN. Danny then puts up the remaining consonant of Z…

    Bad luck with the wheel, but Danny sure recovered nicely from that missolve. Too bad he didn’t call BGHO.

    Terrible with the Wheel, BR was Brutal and it extended the BR slump to 6 now. We better get a BR win this week. Not a Good Show overall.

    I love secret Santa week! Kind of disappointed with tonight’s show though. Hopefully we can get a bonus round win Tuesday and the rest of the week. I did notice that they have no sponsor this year
