We're doing this again? Oh boy... can I pick this?
SONIC WHAMMY'S PREDICTION: PLANE
And at the end of the day, the top family is heading off to Mazatlan.
So let's play!
Cranium Brain Break: Dad-A-Pult
Put the catcher's outfits on, and put 45 on the clock.
Grace gets the first one, and constantly manages to keep ahead by
that one shot... and pulls away more at the end to take a 7-4 win.
Grace places her prize dot in the 1 WSW. Jocelyn goes for the 1-3
border due south. Grace chooses to go second for the first round.
Jocelyn lands hers right on the prize dot to start, but Grace bumps it
off to the side in the 3 zone while getting a bullseye. Hannah bumps
that bullseye, but sends her other slider onto the yellow prize dot to
negate it. Now they've gone from 5-3 to 1-1, and Quincy can't captialize.
He almost lost, in fact, when he bumped his one into the Sorry zone and
almost landed the other on the red dot. Whew! All that just for a tie...
FINAL SCORE: 1-1 TIE
hits the prize dot again, barely. Deo takes it out and just barely hangs
on to a 1-pointer. Can Steven make his last slider count? Yes, trading
his 1 for a 3 AND the prize dot!
FINAL SCORE: 2-3 Jocelyn
JOCELYN'S FAMILY WINS: A Prince Cheshire ping-pong table from Hayneedle
PLUS an internet-ready Blu-Ray player
JOCELYN'S CARD: DOG
Take a spin as we play this game by the numbers.
Jocelyn gets off to the fast start, getting before Grace gets her first.
The lead maintains, but Jocelyn puts a 4 on a 1, and that lets Grace tie
it up. It's back and forth now, until Grace puts the 5 down when they
still have 6 cards to go. Jocelyn's family just turns on the speed now
and cleans up.
JOCELYN'S FAMILY WINS: A Samick pro-series acoustic guitar
JOCELYN'S CARD: PLANE
Ooo... be the one, be the one...

TROUBLE POP QUIZ
They trade questions back and forth to start, and while Deo gets
bumped back by Steven, he gets to home base on a 5 on the very next
question. Suzie moves on a big 6, and Grace alllmost gets the win but
the dice rolls off her answer as she buzzes in. They miss the next one,
too, but Jocelyn fails to commit on the next answer with a 1. With
Jocelyn's next answer sending Elaine home, both teams just has to get
the next answer to win, and Grace gets it!
