Wheel of Fortune is a great game show. But playing it is even better! I got this a long time ago, but it’s still pretty fund to play. It’s easy to use and the puzzles are fun.

You can play with up to 2 other people. Or you can play solo against the computer. The category and puzzle are randomly selected, just like on the game show.

To spin the wheel, there is a blue slider on the top. You push it quickly to the right to get the wheel moving, and it keeps spinning until you let go. In my opinion, that’s way more fun than a Spin button. The spaces on the wheel are similar to the real thing. Special spots on the wheel are Lose a Turn, Jackpot, and $10, 000 surrounded by two Bankrupts. I have to say that I think the jackpot space is jinxed or something. I’ve landed on it once the whole time I’ve had the game. Once you get the hang of it, you can usually land close to the space you want. Of course, after you spin you choose letters. You can also buy vowels.

You can mute the sound if desired. On the back there is a cartridge slot, which is apparently for additional puzzles. I’m not sure where you get these cartridges, but the game has plenty of puzzles the way it comes.

The game takes 4 AAs. It seems to last forever on one set. This is a pretty fun game over all. It’s great for car trips where the kids are getting bored.
