Think of it this way: Sandra's already got it better than the last person who played this game -- and that last person actually won with all sixteen boxes in play. So it's never impossible... it just has varying stages of likelihood.

I wonder how much longer this can be kept up, but while this run of good luck lasts with ½ Off I'm certainly gonna enjoy it for all its worth!

Setups like these, for multi-prize packages, never work out well for me. My gut says $6,385, however.

You know, for a purely luck-based game with odds of winning that boil down to a straight-up 50-50 propositon, we don't tend to see this happen as often as you'd think...

Last chance for Brandy to avoid banishment, but she has the advantage..
