Tuesday/Thursday Gift Tag: PartyCity

meineke Jackpot Round: Food & Drink (big puzzle alert)

Kindra immediately grabs the PartyCity gift card w/ two T's, then she calls an $800 T & a $500 S while on the Jackpot, buys three A's & an E & calls for an L on the Wild Card, but it's a dud. Second, Ashley spins Lose a Turn. Third, Zach calls three N's for that WC, three $300 C's & a $500 K while on the blue 1/2 KIA, buys the other vowels in the puzzle (three I's & four O's) & finds a $1K M pair, a $900 V & the double P's on the bottom for another C-note, then we have...

A / M I _ N I _ _ T

Mystery Round: What Are You Doing?

Ashley asks for two T's to put the first $1,100 in her bank for this round of play, but she then says D for dud while on the same 1/2 KIA. Second, Zach just barely dodges Bankrupting on the Million Dollar Wedge & calls three $1K N's while on the Mystery Wedge next to it (he would've Bankrupted had he turned it over), then what comes to him are a $400 G, an I & a couple E's before he repeats the I after inadvertently blurting out the N. Third, Kindra claims an $800 W but then loses her turn w/ the L; then again, she was on the same MW anyway. In any event, Ashley then duds out again w/ R, so it's almost immediately right back to Zach, who next lights two S's for an additional six Benjamins, the remaining vowels available (an A & half a dozen O's) & twin $300 P's, then we have displayed...

NO BANKRUPT TRASH IN THIS GAME

Maxwell House Regular BR #163: Zach wasn't allowed to use his WC in the Speed-Up Round even though he requested to do so, but he will get to do so here shortly after spinning the &.

Prompt: Thing

From the early looks of it, this might be the same bonus puzzle that won Plezetta West the $100K a little over three yrs. ago:

_ _ _ _ _

_ _ N _

It sure looks like it to me after he calls CDMAG...

M A G _ C

_ A N D

...BUT HE SOLVES MAGIC WAND JUST AFTER THE BUZZER. Darn. That thankfully costs him the prius instead of the big one & he goes home w/ $19,950 in cash & Curacao.
