While this is by far the best "official" PYL game released to date, it falls short of being great in a lot of ways. As you'll see, the CON list far outweighs the PRO. I knew going in that I'd probably be sorry I spent $20 on this, so I only have myself to blame. :) The good news though...I think a second edition could easily address the major problems...if they care enough to do that.

PROS:
* They got most of the spin pass rules right. I didn't expect that! This game only works when the spin pass rules are followed, so it was pleasantly surprising that they paid attention to this and only allow you to pass to the player in first place.

* Visually, it looks just like the show. You can tell they paid attention to the details here...too bad they weren't as observant with how the game functions (see CONS)

* The whammies are cute and very well done. Many were even re-created to match the actual ones on the show. These whammies don't say anything though...they just laugh or snicker at you.

* The customizable avatars are a nice touch...makes the game seem more real.

* The board configurations are right for the most part. This was a nice tip of the hat to fans.

CONS:
* Nitpicky, but it's just not the same without the "real" theme. It's a real head-scratcher as to why they re-created the pilot theme instead of the actual theme. Maybe it was a rights issue.

* With the obvious attention to visual detail elsewhere, it's somewhat surprising that the slides don't look right. The fonts and colors are all wrong...which would have been an easy fix. This is a minor nitpick that doesn't really detract from the game though.

* I mentioned in PROS that the spin pass rules were mostly right...

This is a great game, as I have enjoyed playing for several hours already. Unfortunately, for big fans of the show, this game lacks in several areas:

1. When you pass your spins to tied opponents, you are not allowed to choose which opponent you want to pass to. Instead, the game decides for you. This is not similar to the official game.

2. Computer opponents are often not very smart and often miss very easy questions or do not pass at appropriate times.

3. Trips are only worth $3000 and $4000 in the first and second rounds. There could be a lot more creativity used in designing prize winnings.

4. Finally, one of the biggest things that takes away from the fun of this game is the board structure is not complex enough. When playing in round 1, as long as you hit stop on the board with $1000 as the highest dollar prize, there will never be a whammy. In round 2, if you hit any board with $3000 + one spin, there is never a whammy there either. I have completed many games without hitting a whammy! While it is fun to win, there needs to be opportunities to hit whammies on these parts of the board as well.

Overall, a fun game. I enjoyed playing it with friends for about 2 weeks, but once I figured out the issues with the game I began to realize just how much better this game could possibly be. I hope to see these changes made for a 2011 version!

I love this game because it's a blast to play with friends and family. I'm vision impaired so I like that it reads the questions to you, and you click on the answer you want. I have the WIi version, and the mouse goes all over the place, and you run out of time. One bad point, why does the game require the CD to play? I like installing the game, and putting the CD away to preserve its condition.

Finally got to play this game this past holiday season. Like Hollywood Squares and Millionaire, you create a profile that keeps track of your progress. A solo game pits you against two computer players. The first few games, the computer players are no real threat. They will mostly not buzz in for questions or give a wrong answer. As you win more games, the computer players get smarter and more aggressive. They start giving right answers more often and will start buzzing in to answer questions. They might also pass their spins to you. If you have less spins or money, you can pass your spins to them.

Format is based on the 80s version of the show that Peter Tomarken hosted. There's two rounds each of four questions and the prize board round. Player with the most spins and most in cash/prizes goes last, respectively, in the prize board round. The prize board is almost an exact duplicate of the show. Computer play seems to be random. They can pass spins and they do get whammies occasionally. You as the human player can always decide whether to play or pass your spins. Passed spins go to the computer player with the higher amount. So far, I've won 10 games. If you lose a game, you can play it over till you win. Overall a fun and challenging game to play. You need to have the disc in your PC to play it.
