Just because I was bored, I got myself WHEEL on the Nintendo Switch (which plays akin to the S34 rules, but R4 is always a full Speed-Up w/ the yellow $900 being a potential FS space; it’s merely a port of that game from the PS4 and Xbox One). It’s a fun (but flawed) game that I will review on Gomez Vintage Reviews soon.
The prize wedge and PP (not themed, unfortunately) prize is a $7,320 trip to a place of your choice and the gift tag is to a company of your choice. Also, the 1/2 Car is worth $46,840 (same as the BR car…yes really).
Today’s players are Ranch, Me and KC. The hosts are named Discount Pat and Discount Vanna (because Ubisoft can’t afford the real Pat & Vanna to participate for some reason…).
