The party begins with Grand Game:
  • Ore Ida Extra Crispy seasoned French fries (26 oz)
  • Neosporin Neo to Go! spray-on pain reliever
  • Reynolds Cut-Rite wax paper (75 ft²)
  • Oxi Clean stain remover/laundry additive (28 loads)
  • Ortega Thick & Chunky mild salsa (16 oz)
  • Pond's moist towelettes (30 ct)

The Neosporin is a ringer in the good direction. I'd steer clear of the French fries and the Oxi Clean.

$7,564 seems far too high to me... $5,764 is what I'd go with if I had to bet.

Abigail Flips, which is also acceptable to my gut...

This game already holds the longest losing streak of Season 43 so far... looks like it could break its own mark at this rate. 8^/

You can't judge anymore, but my gut tells me that if the Bonus is anywhere, it's either under the waffle maker or the sound machine. Which is still a flip of the coin. Fingers crossed...

...Or it could have been there. >_< Used to be, you could get a fairly decent idea where the Bonus was hiding, because more often than not it was found lurking under the trickiest of the four SPs. That no longer seems to be a rule you can count on. 8^/

Bargain Game:
  1. Honda TRX-90X ATV w/helmet (GOS)
  2. Samsung 55" 3D LED HDTV w/2 pairs of glasses (RR)

It's chancy, but I think the TV might be the bigger bargain this time. Call it a hunch.

There's a seat reserved on the Leftover Island Express for Andrew; how fortunate for him, the advantage is his during this final one-bid...

...how fortunate for him that everybody forgets to take those calling plans into account! (But I have no idea why his bid appeared right-justified...)

10 Chances seems to be appearing more often lately:
  1. Cuisinart stainless steel can opener (RR)
  2. Three pairs of Ray-Ban unisex sunglasses (RR)
  3. 2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS (1.8L, 6AT, FWD, cargo net; GOS)

Maybe with repeated recent playings, people will actually start to remember the Zero Rule? Hope springs eternal...

Just two chances left for the car... it's been done, of course, but it could have been three (a much nicer prospect) if he hadn't burned one of his chances on a Zero Rule Violation. Still, if he hasn't seen this game before he hasn't seen it before...
