That is very cheap for LA-to-Vancouver. Granted, $8,665 was perhaps too much too, but when international border crossings are involved 'tis best to err on the side of expensivity. (Is that even a word?) Not the best way to start a special show.

WHAAAAAT?!!?
($19,265)

20/20 hindsight: Maybe the fact it was a Sonic LT (instead of the usual LS) is what jacked the price up that much? We really should be more careful in heeding the little details like that.

Only thing I'm absolutely certain of is the pool table needing to be $3,595, everything else is up in the air.

Grand Game:
  • Ortega diced jalapeños (4 oz)
  • Lime-a-Way cleaner/descaler (22 fl oz)
  • Star extra virgin olive oil (500 mL)
  • Nabisco Chicken in a Biskit snack crackers (7.5 oz)
  • Energizer Max AA batteries (16 ct)
  • Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper pasta mix
Drew slips up and reads the target price as $650, not $6.50. "If it was six hundred fifty bucks, you'd win for sure!" ^^;;

This is almost too easy. Three's no way that many AAs are anything less than twelve bucks, minimum, and the EVOO is also usually very pricey stuff. Avoid those two if at all plausible.

Nothing can truly be called a "forced win" these days, but this setup came as close as I've seen in recent memory. ^^v

...Does Drew even realize he's been calling this a "new game" for about three years now?

If anything, she should leave it where it is, IMO.

FOR GOOD REASON!

For win number six on the year. Very nice!

(And just for comparison's sake, those six wins put this nearly universally-hated game at the same number as Spelling Bee, Let 'em Roll, and 10 Chances combined. Just thought I'd mention it...)
