WOF Classic Puzzleboard JR. by Gradyz033 WOF Classic Puzzleboard JR. by Gradyz033
Here is the Classic Puzzleboard with a colorful twist. This is from the 1987 Wheel of Fortune Junior Edition from Pressman. If you are going to use it, please give me credit.

Some international versions had a rainbow border; Slovakia's did, and I think Germany had one, too.

Gosh, that's one of the things I liked about the Junior Edition board game. At the time I got it from a thrift store, I didn't know what Junior Edition meant. I played the PC Junior Edition and was like, "Where's the colorful border?" Now I know what it means of course and I liked what Pressman did to make it more appealing to kids. Another way was rather than have values end in "50," they made all values as multiples of $100 and have vowels cost $200 so there'd be no fuss with $50 bills.

Um, one thing I'd like to note. The plastic for the puzzle board in this version was blue instead of green. I think the blank squares should be blue because of that. Again, I can do that if you'd like.

This is proof to me you know more about the show than I ever will.

Well, I've been in love with the show since I was 2, and I've learned some interesting things about the show since then.

There is a Wikia that is dedicated to the show, its history, and its people. wheeloffortunehistory.wikia.co… If you're looking for the entire true story of Wheel of Fortune in a nutshell, that's the site you want to go to.

Some people have been considering making pages on the Wikia for international versions (especially for Australia and possibly the UK). Once those spring to life, I plan to put in a bunch of info there.

One thing I'm desperately trying to figure out more on besides the way the show was in 1975 is Wheel of Fortune Live Play from 2004. It was never released yet I swear I saw it on Ebay a couple years later. If you see a unit for sale anywhere, please let me know. I've been dying to get my hands on it not just for myself, but for fellow Wheel friends such as you.

I also added that wiki to my favorites list. But I'm facing a contradiciton when I look at it. It says the puzzleboard was rejected from the Smithsonian for being too big, and all that's left is a trilon with a W. Other sources say it's in the Smithsonian. Who's telling the truth?

I might add some info myself depending on what I know and don't about those foreign shows; you know more than me, I guarantee it. Slovakia and Turkey were the last ones I watched. I use Google translate when I can (but haven't been able to do that with the Greek show).

Thanks; I'll definitely keep a lookout for that.
