(Mind the Rant!)
Okay, Harry Friedman. What's going on with Wheel of Fortune? There are way too many gimmicks. Let's take a look at what's been added over the last 7 years:
Now, this year, you've added a few new things:
- Bonus Wheel
- Wild Card
- Gift Tags
- Mystery Round
- Toss-Up Rounds
- Prize Puzzle
Isn't it getting excessive for a game that's just Hangman for cash? I understand all the changes, and really like some of them. However, enough is enough. Round 3 now can have up to 7 special wedges. That's nearly a third of the Wheel! Keep the new features coming, I love 'em. However, retire some of them. There's some serious Mo' Money going on here.
- '25' Wedge
- "Big Money!" round
- And now, the "Maxwell House" $2500 "Double Wedge":
However, I love the fact that JEOPARDY! hasn't been touched. The double amounts were perfect a few years ago, and the Clue Crew seems like a natural extension to the answers. I like the yearly opening changes, and the great HD set.
