Margie realizes “SANTA’S ON HIS WAY”. Kicking off this other SS week are these people…

Margie Alston: retired from the USPS two yrs. ago (one of his sons Michael served in the military) from Haw River, NC

Christina Walters: payroll assoc. for a casino from El Cajon, CA

Mitch Speer: data analyst for a credit union who became a newlywed to Brooke as of last Summer in Montana from South Bend, IN


H _ _ _ I N G _ _ _ D S

Christina sees some HUMMINGBIRDS.

Unlike last week, this week’s prizes placed on the wheel are NOT courtesy of the WoF Free Play app.

FEATURED TRIP: Conrad Hotel New York
Mon./Wed./Fri. Gift Tag: gifts.com

Round 1: WAYD?

Her first letters are a $550 R, a single A, a $600 S, and a $2,100 N trio. But after the purchases of two I’s and an E is the first LaT hit of the week. Second, Mitch calls up the obvious $500 G, two O’s, two T’s for the WC, a $650 H, and the last vowel of U before we see…

H O S T I N G / A
_ O T _ U _ _ / _ I N N E R

He’s won his first $1,650 towards maybe HOSTING A POTLUCK DINNER.

SOLE LaT: Christina

Mystery Round: CHARACTER

All Mitch here — he picks four T’s for $2,600, a single E, a $2,100 H trio, two O’s, and four S’s for another $2,400.

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

He’s NOT scared of THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST, because he’s won another $6,600 — PR.

Margie: $1K/Christina: $2K/Mitch: $8,250 WC

PP/Express Round: PLACES

All Margie here — she takes a $700 T, three FP S’s, three E’s (could’ve said that first on FP), two I’s, an $1,800 pair of H’s, the other three vowels, and a $650 R.

_ _ O R I O U S
_ H I T E / S A _ _
_ E A _ H E S

She’s won another $3,400 and will  be seeing the GLORIOUS WHITE SAND BEACHES on her trip to the ARUBA Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino worth $6,300 PR #2.

Margie: $10,700 cash & trip/Christina: $2K/Mitch: $8,250 WC

$3K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

_ E _ P _ _ M I N T
C R _ _ _ _

Margie thinks it’s PEPPERMINT CRUNCH…believe it or not, that’s right.

Round 4: THINGS

She first puts up a $600 S, two T’s for another $1,600, but then a baddie of E. Second for Christina are a $500 R, a $1,400 pair of N’s, three A’s, but she then repeats the N. Third in Mitch’s direction are a $500 D, the other two non-O vowels, but then L for loss. After Margie BANKRUPTs near TD to lose $1,950, Christina inserts a V and two F’s at $500 each before she finally goes for the solve…

F U N / F A _ T S
A N D / T R I V I A

She’s learned enough FUN FACTS AND TRIVIA for $3,150.

DUDS: E (Margie) & L (Mitch)
SOLE DQ: Christina’s N repeat

Margie: $13,700 cash & trip/Christina: $5,150/Mitch: $8,250 WC

Round 5: SHOW BIZ

After Christina starts w/ a $700 S and the LaT, it’s S-U time…

_ _ _ S _ – _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
_ _ _ _ _

…w/ a $1,500 FS. Two P’s are said by Mitch late in the round, but he goofs w/ PULSE-POUNDING CRIME, not realizing the I there was only one I on top. Two U’s and two D’s later to leave only vowels remaining…

P U L S _ – P _ U N D I N G
D R _ M _

Christina’s won another $6,700 in this scenario of PULSE-POUNDING DRAMA. BTW, had Margie NOT solved the third Tossup, she would’ve stolen this game.

DUDS: T (Mitch), F (Christina), H (Mitch)
SOLE LaT: Christina
SOLE DQ: Mitch’s missolve

Margie: $13,700 cash & trip/Christina: $11,850/Mitch: $8,250

GT: $33,800

Christina SPIN ID: PP2933533 (Pam P.)
Mitch SPIN ID: SM7611672 (Steve M.)

The Monday topics for Margie…


She wants F&G.

$100K Bonus Round

No, they’re NOT offering the maZDa CX-3 CUV again — this one’s actually a 2018 Toyota RAV4. Margie could find it in the S of SPIN. If this biggie is what I think it is, she’s in trouble already…

_ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _
_ N / T _ E / _ _ R _

HMDI is of very limited help…

_ _ I _ _ / _ _ _
I N / T H E / _ _ R _

She hasn’t taken a QUICK JOG IN THE PARK, so goodbye $45K.

LAST SPIN ID: PM8413261 (Pat M.)

      I Have to Agree. The BR was Brutal. Really Diabolical.
