Lou slowly solves DESERT COYOTE under the wire.

Thursday's Featured Trip: Kimberly Hotel in NYC from ($7,900)

Eggland's Best Jackpot Round: Landmark

Lou gets underway by spinning up the Bankrupt next to the Wild Card. Second, Justin calls a $900 R, buys two E's, says a $500 S, two T's for the green 1/2 KIA & another grand & three L's to add $2,400 on top of that, then he buys three A's & Free Plays a set of O's before he...

_ E L L O _ S T O _ E

_ A T _ O _ A L / _ A R _

...solves YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK for a $4,300 victory in this round of play & retains the wheel.


Current Scores:

Brian: $0/Lou: $2K/Justin: $5,300 (1/2 KIA)

Mystery Round: What Are You Doing?

Justin immediately gets a 1/2 KIA from the same position as last time w/ three $500 N's, then come the same quantity of I's before he's stopped by the Lose a Turn. Second, Brian Bankrupts as fast as Lou did in the previous round. Third, Lou lights two G's while on the Mystery Wedge next to the Million Dollar Wedge & gives back $2K...for her second Bankrupt of the night. So just like that, it's back to Justin we go & he buys an O, captures two $300 C's but then hits the other natural Bankrupt to lose $1,600 besides the KIA Soul. Brian then asks for four T's to get the trip & two H's for $1,600 in potential spending money...

Prize Puzzle Round: Thing

Two N's give Brian a $600 start in this round, followed by a $900 trio of L's, five E's, four A's to clean out the vowels just like that, a $700 D pairing, a $600 H couple but then the same Bankrupt Justin got to rid him of $2,300, his second tonight. Once Lou gets the $1,200 S couplet...

Justin figures out that Taylor Swift's a great example of a COUNTRY MUSIC ARTIST to take over second place by $100.

R4: Around the House

First from him are twin L's for nine bills (one at the end of the first & third words), triple E's but then the LaT strikes against him for the second time on the evening. Brian secondly Bankrupts next to where the WC formerly was, making that his third one this game. Third for Lou are a $1K pair of T's, an A & her second LaT as well. Returning to Justin, who puts up $2,700 worth of three R's & purchases an O set...

R5: Phrase

Big Brian spins out a $300 T & N but then calls a negative of L. Second, Lou gets a $600 S, double U's but then loses her turn w/ a J call. After Justin's second Bankrupt of the night next to the invisible WC & Brian has called three M's to add $1.5K to his stake, it's time for the Last Chance Mode part of the program...

_ _ U / M U S T / _ _ _ _

_ _ _ _ / M _ / M _ N _

...& the left consonants are worth $1,350 each. Next are the double D's...

_ _ U / M U S T / _ _ _ _

_ _ _ D / M _ / M _ N D

...but he has no guess for the title w/ $4,800 more on the line for him. Two Y's are taken by Lou right after that...

Y _ U / M U S T / _ _ _ _

_ _ _ D / M Y / M _ N D

...same result, so we're pretty much in Sudden Victory. Back to Brian, he calls two E's...

Y _ U / M U S T / _ _ _ E

_ E _ D / M Y / M I N D

...another blank. Lou might know it after she calls for the R...

Y _ U / M U S T / _ _ _ E

...well, I was wrong. Justin next gets the H...

Y _ U / M U S T / H _ _ E

J!: Competing second in these semi-finals are Leslie, Brooks & Nate. First six subjects:


Slightly in Lock Game Territory by the time a break's taken is Nate w/ $3,800; Leslie's $2K behind him & Brooks has begun w/ $600 tonight. Just after the commercials & end of Toys & Games, Nate goes Daily Double Hunting w/ the $800 Other Wonders of the World clue...he finds it on his third shot w/ the $1K clue & $4,400. Nate wagers $2,400:

The Alcazaba's the Citadel of this moorish masterpiece in Granada, Spain.

"The Alhambra" is NOT recalled by him, so he's down to $2K & loses his LGT positioning for now. After Potpourri ends up being a WIPEOUT, Leslie ends up ending the round in first w/ $2,400, Nate has two thou & Brooks has half that, so the middle man begins the upcoming round.


Double J! Brings Out:


When it comes to its $1,200 clue, Leslie might not be one of those Lesser-Known Women for much longer in her neighborhood, because it's DD time w/ $3,200; Nate got the $400 clue to get this round going. $1,700's her wager on this:

Massachusetts' state heroine's Deborah Samson, who, disguised as a male soldier, fought in this war.

"What is The American Revolution?"...good for $4,900. At the conclusion of that topic, Nate's doing something very similar late in the last round, which is going DDH, this time beginning w/ the $1,600 Rhyming Movies answer...but the $800 clue proves to be Toot Sweet to Brooks at least for now. Brooks stands at $7K & trails Nate for second by three G's & Leslie by $4,300. The middle guy's bet will be $5K, so here's his clue for first:

This Sousa piece, the official march of the U.S., includes the tooting of the euphonium, clarinet & cornet.

"What is 'Stars & Stripes Forever'?" is nailed by him to take the lead w/ $12K; he also RUNS THAT CATEGORY to make his score $16,800!

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $1,200 (Engineering)

Heading into Final J!:

Nate: $9,600
Brooks: $19,200
Leslie: $11,300


Nate: $12K
Brooks: $15K
Leslie: $10,800
