Wheel of Fortune Featuring Vanna White lets you and up to two friends contest for virtual cash and prizes on Wheel of Fortune, based on the TV game show. The object of the game is to decipher the puzzle on the game board by guessing the letters that make up the title of a person, place, thing, event or other word or grouping of words.
Prior to guessing a consonant, you must spin a giant wheel that determines how much money you will earn (times the number of matches); alternately, you can or buy a vowel (for $250) without spinning. As well as letter, you can also land on Lose Turn, Free Spin or Bankrupt, the latter of which rids you of all your earnings from the current round of play. You continue to spin the wheel and guess letters until you enter one that is either not in the puzzle or has already been guessed. Also, your turn ends if you land on Bankrupt or Lose Turn, enter a vowel instead of a consonant after you spin, give an incorrect answer to the puzzle or take more than ten seconds to respond. Of course, solving the puzzle ends the round.
If you accumulate the most cash of all the contestants after three rounds of play, you enter a special bonus round. A puzzle appears and the letters R, S, T, L, N and E are automatically filled in by the computer. You must then choose three more consonants and one more vowel and have 30 seconds to fill in the remaining blanks in the puzzle. Solve the puzzle in time and you will win a valuable prize!
Wheel of Fortune Featuring Vanna White features more than 2,000 puzzles, two speeds of play, two difficulty levels (easy and hard) and the option of playing with the timer clock on or off. As the title of the game so boldly announces, fan favorite Vanna White is on hand to host and turn the letters. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
