The Wheel of Fortune Puzzle Compendium

"Having a detailed archive of Wheel of Fortune puzzles is a great way to notice patterns and key words in certain types of puzzles. After years of watching, several puzzles and words become familiar. If you're going to be on the show and have been given your taping theme, check past puzzles from episodes with similar themes and take good notes, because it might really help you!"
- MarioGS, Former Wheel Contestant and Buy a Vowel Admin

"As soon as I got my taping theme ("College Road Trip"), I did what any good "Wheel" contestant would do - prepare as much as possible! While the wheel itself is mostly out of your control, the puzzles aren't. One of the first stops for me was this compendium, where I took note of any college-themed puzzles that were on during the week the "College Life" category was used. From that, I made a list of key terms that seemed to pop up during college week puzzles. This same method can be used for the often tropically-themed prize puzzles. Looking through the compendium of recent seasons also gives you a sense of how puzzles are written in general. If you're going to be a contestant on the show (or you just want to be a better player at home), the compendium is an invaluable resource to hone your puzzle-solving skills!"
- Kevin Slattery, Former Wheel Contestant

"Through careful hours of show study, this compendium has served me in many facets. First and foremost, it has strongly served to answering questions about if/when a puzzle has been used. Additionally, to help me note trends in puzzle writing for would be players. Last but not last, it has helped me prepare in an infinitesimal number of ways for auditions I have had for Wheel itself over the years, and hopefully (eventually!) my own air date, at which point I would plan to genuinely study the entirety of the syndicated section as to best prepare. A true must visit one-stop shop for historians and all future players of the show!"
