Scrabble, Episode 3


OK, so on the first show, I won big, and then in the second show, I should have lost in the first round, then had a cakewalk in the second, and got impatient and blew a decent shot at the 5 grand in the Jackpot round.  That show was the last taping of the day, and so having won $12 grand, I went to spend the night with friends on CCC staff in San Bernardino, and I said to myself, “all right, Harvey, you’ve made out better than you ever dreamed; now let’s go back tomorrow and break the bank.”  As you’ll see in this first half of the third episode, I played better than either of the first two shows.  I was on a roll:

Scrabble Episode 3, Part 1

Yep, blew the girl away in the first round, and then set my best second-round score of my time on the show.

And then, I ran into Joel from MIT:

Scrabble, Episode 3, Part 2

Gotta tell you, the whole thing was an absolute blast, one of those things that was at least as much fun as I anticipated it being.  I highly recommend it…

    We enjoyed the series Byron, thanks for posting it 🙂

    This was my favorite game show in the 80s, I always thought putting the tiles in the slot was the silliest thing, you can hear them “clunk” when they drop and they obviously do nothing LOL ! Just a little busy work for the contestants.

    soooooo….what did you do with the money and the big question, how much of it went to Uncle Sam?

      We used it on the downpayment for our first house, in High Point, and not as much of it went to Uncle Sam as you might imagine; seems like it was between $1000 and $1500.

    Back when $10k could be a down payment 🙂
