Bargain Game:
  1. Golden West Billiards pool table w/accessories (GOS)
  2. Six "imported" designer leather handbags (RR)

I'm going with the handbags in this case. The pool table likely isn't more than $2,795, which is only an $800 difference or so, but the bags could be three grand or even higher.

Don't know whether to be encouraged that she's picking some nontraditional numbers for the opening stages of the game, or to be concerned that none of them seem to be panning out...

This couldn't be any easier, IMO. But then, it could only be easy to me, because I pay attention to these things. The zero is obviously in the laptop, and there's no way in hell the Piggy Bank could be only $1.43. Therefore, it has to be the 1 simply by process of elimination.

The question, however, is not whether I can figure it out... it's whether Tonya can do it. And the answer to that question is...

Of course, it's more likely she just lucked into this than anything else, but a happy ending's a happy ending!

Hi-Lo:
Trip to Khatmandu, Nepal (Indiana Jones Map, 6n, Hyatt Regency Khatmandu, daily breakfast, 1hr scenic flight above Mt. Everest; $9,908; RR)

Hey, for once, the map takes us to a place Indy actually visited in the movies... neat!

  • Hello breath spray
  • NestlĂ© Baby Ruth snack-size candy bars (6)
  • Old Bay seasoning (6 oz)
  • Zicam Rapidmelts cold remedy tablets (25)
  • Ajax dish detergent (14 fl oz)
  • King Oscar sardines (3.75 oz)

Only two things I'm absolutely confident about are the Zicam (Hi) and the candy bars (Lo). Otherwise, this is a really tricky setup.

That breath spray was a trap if I ever saw one. Even I would've gotten fooled on that one; I was thinking two bucks, max.
