First show of the new
year, so let's start this party off right.
Brother: CASEY (spinning past dad on the basketball court)
Mother: ALLISON (dancer, spinning like a top)
Father: DANNY (the pancakes are doing the spinning... uh, flipping)
by day, pirate by night)
Sister: ISABELLA (tailor to the dolls)
Mother: SHEILA (dancer for the fun of it)
Father: PAUL (catering to his aquarium)
Quite the athletic bunch we've got
tonight. That should make for a good match. And they're playing to
find the Crazy Cash Card worth $10,000.
SONIC WHAMMY'S PREDICTION: CELL PHONE
And Jamaica awaits for the winning family tonight.
Cranium Brain Break: Trash the Host
We're a week late in cleaning up the party leftovers, aren't we?
Evan's family gets the first basket, and it stay quiet mostly until
the end, where each side gets another 3 a piece. So Evan takes the
EVAN'S CARD: WHEELBARROW
KYLIE'S CARD: CANNON
Yep, back to school, kids. Christmas break is over. Evan will go

FINAL SCORE: 30-31 Evan
EVAN'S FAMILY WINS: A Crosley iJuke tabletop jukebox AND a digital
EVAN'S CARD: TRAIN
OPERATION: SAM DUNK
Allison welcomes us back to the show in sign language. I like when
we see stuff like that, always a chance to bring more of us together.
Evan will go second, and Todd sets the mood with Burp Bubbles for 150
points. And as Allison pleads the 5th on Toxic Gas, we start.
Kylie starts off immediately with Bad Plumbling. Isabella answers with a
Burp Bubbles, while everyone else goes cold. Kylie starts the 2nd round
with a Ringing in the Ear to double up, and Casey almost gets it, too.
Isabella hits Burp Bubbles again, but once again, everyone else goes
FINAL SCORE: 700-300 Kylie
KYLIE'S FAMILY WINS: A set of 4 Schwinn high-tempered mountain bikes
KYLIE'S CARD: SODA
I have this now for Christmas, love it
RBYG (Kylie), YGRB (Kylie), BRYG (Kylie), YBGR (Evan), RGBY (Kylie),
FINAL SCORE: 5-1 Kylie
Evan's family got very disoriented trying to see who had what color
assigned to them. In this game, that's all it takes to get beaten.
KYLIE'S FAMILY WINS: A Papa John's gift card
KYLIE'S CARD: CAR
I have Family Game Night 4: The Game Show now, too. Very nicely put
together, but I wish they let you pick the Crazy Cash Cards.
Kylie's prize dot is in the 3 due south, and Evan's is right behind it
on the 1 due south. Kylie's gonna play second on the first round.
Evan starts with a 1 in the back, while a soft 3 by Kylie takes the
lead. Isabella makes a bump to tie it back to 1, but Casey gets a 1 to
win the first round.
FINAL SCORE: 2-1 Kylie
Parents are up, starting with a 3 by Allison. Sheila hooks a 1 in the
northwest corner to lock that point in. Danny gets a 1 in back, and Paul
hooks a soft 1 in the other north corner, and that won't do it.
FINAL SCORE: 4-2 Kylie
KYLIE'S FAMILY WINS: A Spalding portable basketball hoop from Hayneedle
KYLIE'S CARD: HORSE
TWISTER LIGHTS OUT
Turn out the lights... the party's over...
The kids lead off. Isabella falls asleep on the 3rd command, then Kylie
AND Evan move the left foot on a right command a few moves later. So
Casey stands alone very quickly.
Parents now start almost the same way, as Sheila puts her right foot on
the board 2 moves in before it's called for. And the moment the dots
start vanishing, Paul gets caught. It's a sweep.
KYLIE'S FAMILY WINS: A Samick Greg Bennett acoustic guitar
KYLIE'S CARD: SOCCER BALL
MONOPOLY CRAZY CASH MACHINE
This night has been going all Kylie's way after Evan had the big early
start. She's got a 5-2 edge, but we've seen crazier things with these
Crazy Cash Cards before.
Evan will start it. What will he add to his two prizes?
That's really good for 2 cards, to be honest. But I don't know if it'll
hold. Kylie, do the honors.
SOCCER BALL: $485
WINNERS: KYLIE'S FAMILY
It was an academic win, but it took to the last card, and both families
ended up with really nice money, so I call this a good night all around.
But which card would have made it a great night?
$10,000 CARD: IRON
Maybe I should resolve to pick the same card every week or something.
I'll figure out my system, and you'll be back next week, OK? Seeya!
