Wheel of Fortune is a translation of the television game show of the same name. Before each turn contestants can select to spin the wheel, buy a vowel, or solve the puzzle. The wheel contains tiles with dollar amounts, bankrupt, lose a turn, and sometimes special prizes. Landing on a dollar amount or prize results in the opportunity to guess a consonant. If the consonant chosen is in the puzzle the first three selections become available again. When a puzzle is correctly solved that player wins the amount of money they earned while spinning the wheel. If you have the most money at the end of the game you get to play the bonus round for a chance to win one of the big prizes.
Play by yourself or with two other human or computer opponents. You can also select one of the four male or four female contestants to play the part of. The host of the actual game show, Pat Sajak, does not make an appearance. Instead the game is hosted completely by Vanna White. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
