Can we really be this
close to the end of 2011? Man, where does the time go? Well, it
means we're in the holiday season. Who'd we bring tonight?
COLLETTE (3 years on the drums)
CRYSTAL (flipping over gymnastics)
ANTOINETTE (mom, stitched to the sewing machine)
CLINT (dad, guitar backup to Collette's drums)
player with artwork everywhere)
CELESTE (fitness nut)
TRACY (mom, Ms. Fix It)
DAVE (dad, all about crazy pics)
We need for some extra cash as we
gear up for the holiday season, so let's bump the top Crazy Cash
Card to $12,500
SONIC WHAMMY'S PREDICTION: BATTLESHIP
And since winter is about to hit, let's send the winners to
Smuggler's Notch in Vermont.
Cranium Brain Break: Blockheads
We're starting tonight with a game of balance.
Caleb tries angling his head and kneeling down because of his
height, but the blocks fall almost immediately when he starts
walking. Collette had no such hangups and won on the first trip.
COLLETTE'S CARD: CELL PHONE
CALEB'S CARD: CAR
Three weeks in a row. They must've really missed this game or
Collette's going to go first while we shake 'em up:
A S D O U
M C R A B
P E A R L
I N C U E
A T E G T
And there's a 32" LCD flat-screen TV up for grabs if anyone can DOUBLE
Collette: CAR, CRAB, GET, SCENT, ATE, CUT, CUE
Caleb: DOUBLE (BONUS), PEARL, PEAR, PINT, (X), CURL, (TIME UP!)
Caleb got the bonus right away, but in trying to spell GENT, he jumped
to the wrong E and trapped himself. That non-score opened the door.
FINAL SCORE: 24-23 Collette
COLLETTE'S FAMILY WINS: A Boomers gift card
COLLETTE'S CARD: BATTLESHIP (Yay!)
CALEB'S FAMILY WINS: A 32" LCD flat-screen TV
TROUBLE POP QUIZ
Dave and Tracy are really excited to play this game, they can't stop
Caleb & Celeste strike first, moving Tracy the full 8 spaces home in the
first 2 moves. Antoinette gets to move next, but gets bumped back by
Dave, who makes it home on the next move. 5 questions is all it took.
CALEB'S FAMILY WINS: A trip to Medieval Times
CALEB'S CARD: PLANE
CONNECT 4 BASKETBALL
Everyone's arms are stretched out now, so
let's do some shooting.
Caleb's going first. Here's how it ended up:
Everyone wanted 4 at first, but it took Dave to finally get it. And
right away, that 3-in-a-row was put away by Caleb in another fast win.
CALEB'S FAMILY WINS: A Skywalker Elite Series trampoline from Hayneedle
CALEB'S CARD: TRAIN
BOP IT! BOPTAGON
Now for some more physicality. Let's lay out the eliminations:
1) Antoinette AND Caleb (Rotated on a Reverse)
2) Crystal (Didn't Whack fast enough)
3) Dave (Crashed on a Bop)
4) Collette (Missed her Bop)
5) Celeste (Didn't Whack fast enough)
6) Tracy (Froze on a rotate)
This was a marathon match. That makes up for the last two going so fast.
COLLETTE'S FAMILY WINS: A DXG HD camcorder
COLLETTE'S CARD: HAMBURGER
Not often we anchor the show with a game
like this. Let's make the most of it.
YGBR (Caleb), BYRG (Caleb), RBGY (Collette), BGYR (Caleb), GBRY (Caleb),

This one's fast no matter what, but a split second won that last point
and the game for Caleb.
CALEB'S FAMILY WINS: A 1-year California State Parks pass & a Kelty
CALEB'S CARD: HORSE
MONOPOLY CRAZY CASH MACHINE
As Celeste's celebrating breaks her Simon
cube, we head over to the Crazy Cash Machine. Fortunately, they don't
lose their 3-4 defense for prop damage.
Caleb's playing first. Let's feed!
That's a strong total. Can 3 simple cards do it for Collette? I hope so,
she picked my Battleship card.
BATTLESHIP: $250 (Aw, c'mon.)
CELL PHONE: $450
WINNERS: CALEB'S FAMILY
Caleb's gonna hit the slopes. Enjoy it, man! But where was that big
