If you're a 'Wheel Watcher,' aka a fan of the classic TV game show Wheel of Fortune, you'll be happy to know that your favorite letter-turning game has finally landed on Facebook. The game, created by GSN Digital, combines the aspects from the TV Show -- the wheel, buying vowels and the trademark sound effects -- with some very Facebook game-centric features.

You start the game by playing a 'Main Round' on your own and then playing a 'Bonus Round' where you can ask friends for help via a Facebook Wall post. Just like the TV show, you can spin the wheel and pick a consonant, choose to buy a vowel and/or choose to solve the entire puzzle. After the round is over, you are rewarded with 'Wheel Bucks,' which can be used to buy bonuses for your game -- Letter Reveal, Timer Pause, Double Bucks, Free Play -- or used to buy collections. Once a collection is complete, you'll score Wheel Gold, which can be used to buy more bonuses or purchase additional episodes (each player is given three free episodes to play daily).
