Based on the long-running game show starring Pat Sajak and Vanna White, Wheel of Fortune for the Nintendo 64 brings over 4,000 puzzles of wheel-spinning, word-deciphering action to your fingertips.
Facing a giant wheel and a wall of hidden letters that spell out a word, name, or phrase, your job is to spin the wheel and cross your fingers. If the wheel lands on a dollar amount or a Free Spin, you can guess a consonant or buy a vowel. If you guess a consonant correctly in the puzzle, you score points and get to continue spinning. If you successfully buy a vowel, you don't get any money, but it will still be your turn and you will be that much closer to solving the puzzle.
During any of your turns, you may choose to solve the puzzle. If the wheel stops on BANKRUPT or LOSE A TURN, or if you run out of time, then you're out of luck and it's the next person's turn.
If the wheel lands on FREE SPIN, you can use it then or save it for later in the round. You can play Wheel of Fortune by yourself or against one or two friends. The first two rounds of the game are played using the aforementioned rules. The third is a special speed-up round, and fourth round is a bonus game in which the winner gets to compete for valuable prizes such as a car, a boat, or some furniture. ~ Glenn Wigmore, All Game Guide
