I bought the game when it went on special for $5.OO. It has actually taught my 3-year-old all her letters and hopefully some words.
My husband and I will play this for hour while the kids are in bed. The lack of Anna White and Pat Speak doesn't hurt Wheel at all, but you'll want to turn off the annoying music and maybe the annoying voice-overs of the generic hosts.
The core Wheel of Fortune game works well and is a lot of fun, but even on hard difficulty, against the AI the game is SUPER easy. Jeopardy has no host (except a female voice over) and no customization options, which is actually nice.
I have had this game in my eye for quite sometime and finally saw it sold at the right price. I had looked at the reviews from other sources, all of which was a mixed bag of both and bad.
This game is pretty true to the reviews, and for the price I paid isn’t too much of a loss on my end. The problems that keep it from being a real good game are strictly due to how the game plays and the frequency of wins or losses while playing it.
This happens far too frequently and quite unfair especially while playing alone with the automated opponents. Also, it seems that the AI players seem to have a “home team advantage” during games but when it comes to guessing letters for puzzles play dumb and guess completely off the wall letters which are not part of the solution.
Jeopardy is okay at best and looks rushed and doesn’t feel like the game show at all. It isn’t a complete dealbreaker, but it does look like they really didn’t care about the layout and design.
So I'm 36 years old, my crazy bar days are behind me, but I still love video games. This is (obviously) not a gamers game, but if you're looking to have a fun night of shouting at the TV with your significant other, or a bunch of friends, this game is a great choice.
My fiancé and I love it, and when our friends come over, we've turned it into a drinking game because why not? In all seriousness though, it's a fun game and a great way to kill an otherwise uneventful evening.
A bit confusing at times when interacting computer characters with the actual players, etc. It’s just like the TV show and have some other options for a quick playing also.
The Jeopardy game is OK. Little awkward to play but not bad once you get used to it. My 10-year-old couldn’t really answer the questions in jeopardy and did just ok on wheel of fortune.
This game is more difficult with children due to needing to be able to spell well and the harder trivia in Jeopardy, but adults can have a great time. Please ensure to provide the correct email address when placing your order.

Sometimes a single letter can be the difference between bringing home big bucks or joining the pantheon of famous Wheel of Fortune fails. Veteran host Pat Speak kept it moving with a quick, “Sorry,” and then turned to fellow contestant Jenn, who solved it correctly.
Not to be outdone, a contestant named Jonny lost out on $7,100 back in April when he mispronounced a puzzle that had all the letters revealed. Matt Delano appeared on Friday's Wheel of Fortune, and with just one vowel, he managed to guess this puzzle.
His $91,000 win set a new record for Wheel of Fortune as it's the most that anyone has ever won during the main portion of the show. Read Full Description One of the most successful game shows ever made, Wheel of Fortune is a very popular TV program that catapulted Anna White to stardom as one of the most recognizable TV celebrities.
An incorrect guess or spinning the wheel to one of the penalty spaces means control goes to the next contestant. At any time during a player's turn, they can elect to spin the wheel ; ask to buy a vowel” of their choice, in which case $250 is deducted from their score; or solve the puzzle.
New features were added as technologies advanced, from CGA to VGA and digitized voices of Anna White in the 1991 Deluxe Edition. Each new version features more questions than the last, although they disappointingly border on the easy side and tend to be from only a few categories (e.g. people's names, common nouns).
Still, fans of the TV show will definitely enjoy these computer releases which are quite faithful to the originals. Tori McGee is the author of the children’s books Sloths Don’t Run, The Lost Narwhal, and the Okay Gooey Monster series.
