And it's off to Carey's Card Club for today's Dream Car game, Card Game:
2014 Range Rover Sport SE 4WD (3.0L, AT, panoramic sliding glass sunroof; RR)

Range
$5,000

...which is as good as it gets!

One-Time Rule Change: Because we'd probably be drawing cards all day if we started at $15,000 like we normally would, today's starting bid is...

Well, this is the most cards I've seen anyone draw here in a long time, and not just because of the several years this game spent in limbo either. That's not a good sign.

I KNEW IT

It was actually lower than even I thought. But yeah... you should never have to draw more than five times, maybe six on the outside. Especially if you draw the good range card as Jackie did here. But unfortunately, Range Rovers aren't exactly on everyone's shopping list.

  • Mott's applesauce (24 oz)
  • Wheat Nuts snack (7 oz)
  • Gold Bond Ultimate Diabetic lotion (3.4 oz) ***ANACHRONISM ALERT***

I'm not certain when Allegra became an OTC drug, so it could be a second ***ANACHRONISM ALERT***. Either way, with a price of $18.70 showing I don't have any doubt that's supposed to be a Now.

When looking for traps: If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's probably not going to be beating Usain Bolt in a foot race any time soon. ^^;

Morgan Honey, first of all I just gotta say, I love your name. Really. Unfortunately, you're also on the verge of banishment. But you do have the advantage, not that that's been much of a help today so far. Still, if you're going to avoid the trip up the Ohio River, it's now or never...

Well, look at that. And she's gonna get at least two cracks at that tens digit. Things are looking in a decidedly upward direction.

  1. I hope this doesn't end with only the cayenne won, and this doesn't get done again as a result. I personally would like to see it done again, do you think dream car week as a theme gets done again next year?

    1. Steven, don't feed the trolls.

    2. i am only asking if the theme will be done again, do you think it will be done again TVLubber?

  2. It probably WILL end with only the Porsche being won. But I don't mind Dream Car Week if at least one of them is won.

    1. The week is NOT over yet. We'll see. You're nothing more than a mere jinx.

      Devin, please block this perpetual troll before he starts his tirade all over again.

      Delete
    2. He says he's changed his ways, and after reviewing his recent activity I see no reason to doubt it. As long as he stays respectful I've no reason to block him.

      I assure you, however, the minute he reverts to type he's outta here for good. Still, I've just enough naïveté left in me to believe that any one of us can change for the better if we set our mind to it.

  3. Im only asking devin if it gets done again if it ends badly. i did not expect my response being misinterpreted
