Spelling Bee debut--minor rule change
« on: June 24, 2018, 09:15:10 AM »
In Spelling Bee's debut playing (first game of the below episode) Bob offered the contestant a choice of which card he wanted to reveal next. Did this last for any length of time beyond this?

I'm not sure if it did, but chances are Bob stopped doing this because it took extra time and was rather superfluous. The contestant picked the cards in a certain order, might as well reveal them in that order.

Then Bob had the right idea!
