September 9

Big games, bigger prizes, and the biggest family moments in all of game shows? Tonight: Sorry! Sliders, Bop It!, Spelling Bee, Simon Flash, and Connect 4 on Family Game Night!

Let's meet the players...

Tillman's Family
Tillman's a budding novelist, mom Samone makes funny faces, dad Matthew likes to run, and sister Charlotte likes science
Wyatt's Family
Wyatt has a lot of pets and bikes, mom Kelly redecorates a lot, dad Ward has more toys than Wyatt, and brother Mitchell likes wakeboarding

Five games will be played. Each win will give the family a choice of 21 Monopoly Crazy Cash Card (3C's). Each card has a different dollar amount. Tonight's top value: $15,000! Both families keep everything they win, but the team with the most cash at the end of the show will win a family vacation in Florida!

Cranium Brain Break: House of Cards

Cranium Brain Breaks will determine which family gets first pick of the Cash Cards, and who will play first in the first game. Each team is guaranteed at least 1 Crazy Cash Card.

In this Brain Break, each family will have to build a two-story card house with a roof on each floor. It must stand for a three-count.

The Reds get the house up first... but it knocks over. Same with the yellow... Reds build their house long enough to win it! Tillman picks off the MONEY BAG. Wyatt gets... the PLANE.


Each family will get two chances to slide their pawn onto a target downstage. The outer ring is worth 1. The middle is worth 3. The bullseye is 5. If your pawn is bumped to the SORRY! zone, then the points are taken away. Most points wins the game, and it takes two games to win the match.

New this season is the Prize Dot. If you land on your own dot, you win a bonus prize. If you land on your opponent's dot, your pawn will not score.

KIDS GAME: Yellow slides... 3. Red slides... 1. Yellow then slides... 1 for 4. Red slides... 3 to tie 4-4.

PARENTS GAME: Red is first... with 3 AND the Prize Dot! Yellow.. 3! Red... 1 for four! Yellow... another tie, 4-4! Tillman's family wins an LCD TV!

Time for a slide-off. Wyatt slides...1. Tillman scores... BULLSEYE! Tillman's family wins a Coleman camping package! He also gets another Cash Card... the SKATEBOARD!


Each family member is at one station, with it alternating red-yellow-red-yellow across the circle. Each family member is in front of a task.

- Twist it (A twist machine where you use your body to twist)
- Pull it (a large pull)
- Shout it (Microphone)
- Kick it (Low punching bag)
- Whack it (Hammer on target)
- Honk It (big bike horn)
- Crash it (Trash can Cymbals)
- Bop It (Bop It pod)
- Rotate it (Move one position to your left)
- Reverse it (Move one position to your right)

When a command is called, activate your station. If you miss your call, you are eliminated. If you activate your command when not called for, you are also eliminated. Last family standing wins.

Round 1) Samone didn't PULL IT in time.
Round 2) Tillman AND Wyatt... and Charlotte ROTATED IT when they should've reversed it.
Round 3) Ward HONKED IT on a Crash It.
Round 4) Kelly ROTATED IT when she should've reversed it.
Round 5) Mitchell REVERSED IT when he should've rotated it. Matthew WINS IT for the Reds! They get a pair of Whiplash scooters! Tillman also heads up to the Cash Corner to get a PIGGY BANK


It's a new game this season. Mom is the Queen Bee, and she'll have to do all the spelling with her stinger. If you think you know what the word is, shout it out. You get 100 for each word. Most points in 90 seconds wins.

First is Wyatt's family. They get IRON, FROG, PLANK, and DRAGON for 400.

Tillman's family is next. They need five words to win. They get WASPS, SOUP, DOVE, COOKIE... and time out. This is going to come down to time. Wyatt's got 400 with five seconds left. Tillman's got 400 with 12 to win a San Diego beach party with tickets to Sea World and another 3C... THE DOG. They're on fire!


Match the sequence by arranging yourselves in the order of the sequence and then touching cubes, but be careful, because every time you do so, your cube will change color. The first family to five wins.

Yellow/Green/Red/Blue: Wyatt!
Green/Blue/Yellow/Red: Wyatt!
Red/Blue/Green/Yellow: Tillman!
Green/Red/Yellow/Blue: Wyatt!
Blue/Yellow/Green/Red: Tillman!
Yellow/Blue/Red/Green: Tillman!
Red/Yellow/Green/Blue: Wyatt!
Blue/Green/Yellow/Red: Tillman!

For the game...

Green/Yellow/Red/Blue: WYATT! With a little collateral damage, but Wyatt's family gets a $300 gift card to Boomers! Wyatt gets his second Crazy Cash Card of the night, the Thimble! We love the Thimble...


In the classic game of four-in-a-row, the families must connect four balls in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, taking turns shooting at the game board. In this episode, it takes one game to win the match.

Dual implication at the 5-row...  and Samone shoots it to win! Tillman's family is going to see Cirque du Soleil Iris, but first, they're going to the Cash Corner... and pick off the CANNON.

We've got our cards, we've played our games... It's Crazy Cash Time!


The family gets to keep all the cash and prizes they won, but the family with the most cash wins the bonus prize of a beach vacation in the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, Florida!

First, Wyatt has two cards and the gift card to Boomers...

Airplane: $760
Thimble: $445
TOTAL: $1205

Tillman's family has a TV, a trip to San Diego, a camping package, a pair of scooters, and tickets to Cirque du Soleil. They also have five cards. They need to beat $1205.

Dog: $695
Money Bag: $815 (that's game!)
Piggy Bank: $780
Cannon: $2000!
Skateboard: SUPER CASH CARD! It's worth $15,000!
TOTAL: $19,290

Way to make it rain! Enjoy Florida!
