The NES version was designed by Rare, and three editions were made: The original in 1988, a Junior Edition in 1989, and a Family Edition in 1990. Oddly, the Family Edition does not feature the famous Wheel of Fortune theme. This does not support the NES Four Score accessory; the third player must use the first player's controller. This version featured three rounds, a wheel that never changed values (The Top Dollar value in every round was $1,000), and the third round was always the Speed Round with the final spin. If the player advances to the bonus round, they must choose a prize to play for and solve the final puzzle by choosing five consonants and one vowel (this was before R, S, T, L, N and E were given in the offset). The only differences with the Junior Edition is puzzles more identifiable to children and prizes to match (instead of playing for cars, players play for trips or similar). The Family Edition follows this same route. Another version, titled Wheel of Fortune featuring Vanna White, was a new version designed by IJE, who also developed Talking Super Jeopardy! at the same time.
