This was one of my favorite game shows so I was excited when I saw the game. It is you against two competitors and you must answer the questions correctly to earn spins. If you answer first and correctly you get more spins. Once the round is done you get to use your spins to "press your luck" with the board. I agree though that it would have been nice to have the board in the same format as the television show. You have to be careful where you press the button to stop so you don't land on a whammy. You have the choice to use all of your spins or pass any amount of them to an opponent. Whoever has the most cash and prizes in the end is the winner. The game is fun for as long as it lasts. In my opinion each game is far too short. More rounds would have been a big improvement.

Love this game always watched it. The only thing that could be different for me would be to make it a few more rounds. Have had sisters over to play and we had a ball with it.

OMG! I so forgot about this game show from the 80's on TV. What you are doing in this game just in case you've never heard of it or watched it on TV is answering trivial questions: TV, music, movies, etc., and for each one you guess correctly you get a "spin." There is a board with dollar amounts, some dollar amounts also have an additional spin, or prizes like a trip with a dollar amount and then of course the "whammies" which you try to avoid cause they take all your money. The board is always moving, so when you hit the stop button, you never know where you will end up - money or a whammie. You can even pass your spins on to another player if you want if you don't feel like "pressing your luck." I've gotta admit, I'm one to "press my luck" as I was up to about $10,000 and then hit the whammie! LOL! You also play against 2 other computer oponents. I also liked that you can change your characters wardrobe. What a fun game. I give it 4 stars. Thank you Gamehouse.

For those who never saw the actual show, it could actually be kinda fun. But for someone like me who actually saw the show, I found it be good in some parts and not in others. The Whammy updates were actually kinda neat and the questions were quite interesting too....tho after a while they do get repetitive. The spin round, on the other hand, wasn't really what I thought it would be. They tried to keep it in the spirit of the actual show, but it just lacked that spark the actual show did. That and the "prizes" they had was just one trip. It got to the point where if you were trailing in the game and it wasn't by more than like $4000, ya knew what you had to get to win the game. If it had a bigger assortment of prizes and interchangeable boards that could be used in the game, I could see this really taking off, but I just didn't find myself enjoying this all that much. It may just be the fact that I'm a huge fan of the show, but it was a nice try. It just didn't work.

well, i never saw this game show. almost didn't download this one. but am glad i did. it really is 2 games in one: answering questions about entertainment-cool to see how much i knew, and a game of chance when u spin the wheel. those "whammies" were highly annoying. the wardrobe upgrades were cute. the different players and their bios were interesting. all in all a pretty good game-relaxing. i did find myself yelling at the wheel-" whammies...come on...big bucks...", and yelling "...come on whammies..." when another contestant was spinning. FUN!!

I was looking forward to playing this game since I heard it was going to come out for Gamehouse. What an absolute disappointment. First of all, the computer players are absolute morons. Case in point: I played two full games. Each game has two rounds of four questions for a total of sixteen questions. Multiply that by two for the two computer players and you have 32 questions. In two games, the two computer players went a whopping 1/32. That's right. One question right for two computer players in two games. The most frustrating part was the board itself, which was all wong. The game has a 6x6 grid, whereas the show was a 7x6 grid. Would it have killed the R and D department to actually WATCH the original show? The Whammies were fun and enjoyable, which makes it a good game for kids to play. But overall, for a hardcore fan of the show like myself, this game was a real disappointment.

This game is a good representation of the TV Show that I enjoyed years ago. It is simple, fun and addictive.

I loved watching this show on TV, and I love playing it on the computer! The trivia questions have excellent variety, and I love pressing my luck with the big board. The whammies are cute, and I find myself pressing my luck more and more, because it's just so fun! I love being able to choose my own avatar, and even choose their mood! :)

I have never seen this TV show, as it's American, and as such most of the questions seem to be based on American shows etc. The only questions I could answer were on music and films. Having said that, this didn't stop me from winning as you can pretty much guess the answer from the multiple choice answers. It was fast paced and fun to play. I liked how you could pick which contestant you played and get to pick what mood they will be in too. All in all a fun game.
