Storyline

Contestants guess hidden phrases by guessing letters one at a time. Contestants win money or prizes, as determined by a spin of the wheel, for each correct consonant they guess. But they have to pay to see what vowels are in a puzzle. The contestant that has amassed the most winnings at the end of a game goes on to play the bonus round, in which the player can win even more -- prizes frequently seen in the bonus round include automobiles, vacations and more cash.

Splendid fun to watch and play along with
9 October 2001 | by Jerry AblesSee all my reviews

I always make sure that I never miss this awesome game show. If I'm not at home when it comes on, I tape it to watch when I get home. It is my opinion that it is one of the best and most exciting game shows of all time. It's always fun to try and solve the puzzles and to see the contestants win big cash and prizes. It's very easy to see why this show has lasted for so many years and I hope it stays around for years to come.
