It's America's game! Wheel of Fortune 2nd Edition features 2,500 puzzles to solve including those with standard phrases, clues (with bonus answers weighing in at $3000) and themes (for example, topics revolving around certain decades). Before winning fantasy goodies, you choose from various options including Normal, Solo Game and Tournament modes.

Played with three human or computer opponents, Normal mode incorporates timed gameplay and a series of rounds. While games are generally 20 minutes long, you have the option of selecting time limits and winners are determined based on money earned. The player with the most money at the end of the final round moves on to the bonus round which features a final puzzle and the chance of winning one of five fabulous prizes.

Aside from the bonus round, there are Jackpot and Speed-Up rounds as well. Having the wheel stop on the Jackpot wedge during this round significantly increases total earnings if the puzzle is solved at that point. During the round, the jackpot amount increases each time the wheel stops on a dollar amount.

Because time is running out, the Speed-Up round features a final spin from Vanna White. Whatever dollar amount landed on is what contestants earn per correct letter. When a player guesses a correct letter, he or she will have the option of solving the puzzle. If they can't, the next contestant is given a chance to guess a letter.

While the Solo Game is reminiscent of the Normal mode, you'll compete against one thing -- your highest score. There are no human or computer-controlled opponents in this mode. Instead, you receive 11 free spins and after choosing an incorrect letter or landing on a wheel hazard (bankrupt and lose a turn), a free spin is used. After the free spins have been depleted, the game ceases.

Finally, the Tournament mode consists of three human opponents with rules pertaining to Normal mode. In order to compete in the prestigious tournament, you must either win five games or earn $50,000.

Wheel of Fortune 2nd Edition features bonus goodies including a Behind the Scenes mode, career statistics and hidden interviews with co-host Vanna White; the interviews are unlocked by doing well in actual games. With sample contestant exams, backstage video sequences and various rooms, Behind the Scenes is for the Wheel of Fortune enthusiast. Career statistics include number of games won and lost, total earnings, best and worst categories and the number of tournament games won.

For Mac (Power Macintosh: OS 9 or Below) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']

WHAT YOU GET:

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


  • SHIPPING:

    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
