TPiRecap: 30 January 2013

As far as what you missed yesterday... a five-for-six day, with That's Too Much! in the six-hole being the only blemish on our record. Even a Line em Up ace! Not bad, actually...

Since Blake's a new daddy, he could certainly do with a good showing in Punch-a-Bunch:

(GOS with the biggest bill since Christmas, RR with the small stuff)

Oops -- talk about "big bills!" Seems they accidentally gave Gwendolyn the $250,000 version of the bill left over from Big Money Week. Rest assured, however, this is a standard $25,000 playing of the game.

Drew: "I know you got a kid and everything, but -- too bad!"

Déja vù at its worst, right there.

(Yeah, I'm just waiting for that one guy to write in and insist that this should be a technical $250K win because they displayed the wrong bill in the opening. Folks... don't be that guy. Seriously. Don't do it.)

$799

$2500
$3410

I'm gonna go $3,410 on the accessories, as that's the only price that seems to have a fitting pattern for random handbags and wallets (i.e. they almost never end in -00). Everything else is pretty much up for grabs, though I lean toward $799 for the consoles and $1,500 for the guitar.

Let's see what Andrea does, however...

Heather, being from Vermont and living "on a ski mountain" in Cambridge, just may have had an unfair advantage here. ;^) (Said entirely in jest, of course.)

Oh well. It's been a long time since I've had to endure this... I guess I'll just have to grin and bear it...

I'll venture my own guess here, however. For a Corolla... $18,527.

...At first I thought there was a rule change where Heather only picked her cards after playing all three GP pairs -- but after the $5.49 set Drew admitted he just got ahead of himself there.

Two out of three ain't bad in this game, however. Based on these revelations, I'll amend my original thought... $19,873.

TOLD YA SO

This wasn't so bad this time; at least Heather had the right ideas about which numbers to pick for her freebies, and as I said, getting two out of three GPs is better than most others can do here. Don't get me wrong, I still want this game thrown in the incinerator, but this could have easily hurt a lot worse than it did.

Last chance for Michael to avoid the charter flight to oblivion...

Michael had some strange bids today, finally toned it down some, but it availed him not, alas.

While he's off to Leftover Island, Terry will play Double Prices at Home Base:
Trip to Chicago, IL (6n, Sears Willis Tower tour, guided pizza tour; presented by WBBM personalities Megan Glaros and Derek Young... or is it "Derrick?" Not sure)

$7145
$5532

I'm thinking... $5,532. Still have that feeling Mike is booking these vacations at Walmart.

Zagged when I should have zigged. Stacky must've thrown me off my game. >_<
