Description Edit | History

Editions vary, but a familiar phrase or name is hidden on the gameboard. Either the letters represented by cards are face down or the letters are covered by slides. Before guessing letter, a player must spin the eponymous Wheel of Fortune to determine how much each letter, if revealed, is worth to one’s account. Every spin is risk, however, because one could lose a turn or spin "Bankrupt" which means lose a turn and forfeit one’s earnings! Consonants only can be guessed after spinning the wheel; vowels can be guessed at a cost.

A player can continue taking one’s turn until a wrong guess is made and then the turn passes to the next player. Only the player who solves the word puzzle can keep the earnings made for that round. The player who has made the most money after a predetermined number of puzzles is the winner.

The game is a faithful adaptation to the wildly popular television series.

0 Wheel of Fortune 1986 Puzzle Board
I have no idea if this is of use to anyone, but I use it, so who knows? This is for the 1986 Pressman version of Wheel of Fortune. This was a yard sale find for super cheap. The game is still fun, and plays well, but the puzzles are horribly outdated. So using the attached excel spreadsheet, I have made some customized boards for friends and family that have gone over pretty well. Just fill in the category at the top, the large white areas are for the letters and then fill the blocks below to identify where the puzzles are located. If you wish you can cross reference the numbers in the grey area to the letters as they do in the puzzle book, but I usually just play the host for any of my homemade puzzles.
