To Win 5.2
IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ
I created this software
many years ago when the most sophisticated computer games were far less
sophisticated than today's games - and mine were even less sophisticated
than that. I'll get to the point: Chances are that even if
you successfully download and install Spin To Win on your system
(you must have QBasic.exe installed as well, not available here),
it may prove too complicated to get it to run. Plus, you might encounter
some bugs that will bring the game to a halt. Despite all of this,
I consider this to be a very good version of the game -- when it works.
Excellent, if fact.
Finally, if you do decide to
download and install it, please disregard any documentation making reference
to sending payment of any kind. I used to offer a demo for free and
the full game for a very low price, but then I just made the full version
available for free. The address you'd see is not my
current one, so please don't use it. Most of what follows on this
page is also years old, just so you'll know.
Thanks for your attention.
Spin the wheel, pick
letter (watch the board!). Your account grows with every
letter you reveal.
Got enough money? Then buy
a vowel and watch as the puzzle is revealed, letter by letter,
until you're absolutely sure you can solve it!
I think you will like my version
of that great TV game.
Spin to Win has many,
many great features that'll give you countless hours of fun!
This is probably the only
version of Wheel of Fortune you'll find that has
unique puzzles to solve!
kidding! See the list of features below.
