Hi there. This is rocks12345. I decided to reactivate here a couple months after deactivating after gaining some renewed interest in the show (Mainly thanks to Skips Largo and Andy Nguyen from another WOF fan website.). A year ago, I made my Wheel. However, I decided to make some major changes to the wheel recently because the first episodes of Wheel’s 37th season influenced me a lot.
Gameplay changes aside from a couple of dollar amount changes: The $10K wedge is replaced with the Million Dollar Wedge (Which will be on the Wheel for the first three rounds.). The Vowel Card is no more and vowels now cost $250. The second Bankrupt now only exists next to top dollar and will be seen in R2+. The JACKPOT in R2 now starts at $7,500 and landing on the JACKPOT space gives you $1,000 per letter and another $1,000 to the pot. Also, the JACKPOT wedge is moved up one wedge counter-clockwise. The Mystery Round in R3 is now played for a subcompact car. A pair of motorcycles will also be offered there if it’s a team game. The second tossup is replaced by a triple tossup. It’s basically 3 short tossup puzzles played back to back to back. Each puzzle in the triple tossup is worth $2,500. Only one car is available in the Bonus Round.

Reverse side of the Mystery Wedges:
Reverse side of MDW:
Other changes in my game that I forgot to mention: The minimum for main game prizes (Mystery and Gift Tag excluded) is now $5,000. There will be a few 5-digit main game prizes as well (albeit mostly around $10,000-$12,000).

I’ve finally hosted my first game with the new rules! It was fun, but a little disappointing at the same time.
Contestants: Aleena Alex Faith
Tossup 1: Thing
It took a while, but Aleena solved CERAMIC DALMATIAN.
Prize on Wheel: Choice between a trip to Hawaii ($7,500), Canada ($5,000), or NYC ($6,450). Wedge is labeled SHOPPING. These trips will also be available for the Prize Puzzle.
Round 1: Before & After
This one had a lot of dud calls (The K was said by Faith.) and penalty spins. At the end, Aleena called up 3 H’s for the FREE SPIN, bought the last vowels (O & U), and the last consonant of N ($300) before solving RUSH HOUR HAND for $2,250.
Aleena: $4,250 Everyone else: Zero
Jackpot Round: Headline
Alex immediately calls dud of L on the Apple gift tag. Faith then picks up said piece with 3 H’s (iPad Pro ‘11 w/ Notability App), but loses about $1,700 in cash and iPad to BANKRUPT. Aleena picks up the prize wedge, but loses that to BANKRUPT as well and uses her FREE SPIN to keep her turn. Up next were 4 H’s and some vowel purchases before solving TORONTO RAPTORS WIN THE NBA CHAMPIONSHIP for $2,700 (4 N’s were left out, unfortunately.). The amount left in Jackpot was $9,000.
Aleena: $6,950 Everyone else: Zilch
Mystery Round: Occupation (Also the Prize Puzzle)
The Mystery Prize in play was a $14,350 Chevy Spark LS (CVT).
Anyway, Faith calls up a single consonant on the Mystery next to $800. She turns down the $1,000 bribe and risks $900...it’s the car! She buys a couple of vowels after that and calls up 4 R’s on $700. After another vowel buy comes a critical dud of K to possibly let go of at least $17,550 in cash and car. Aleena does the rest of the work here and solves AIRPORT SECURITY GUARD for just $750. However, she get to choose one of the trips from that featured prize...and picks the $5,000 trip to Canada (Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside) since she confessed that she’s never been to the country before.
