Press your luck

Press your Luck is an audio version of the popular American quiz show of the same name. The game runs rather similar to Scunk.
Played between three players, the object is to get as much money as possible from spinning the prize wheel. Each player gets a number of spins that can award money or prizes (which for the purpose of the game are added to the player's total score). Also on the wheel however are wammies, which, if spun will see all of a player's cash and prizes disappear and their score taken down to zero dollars. interestingly enough however the money lost to wammies isn't quite gone for good and if a player lands on the "big bank" they'll recieve all of the previous players losses.
Sinse on each turn a player can decide either to spin the wheel, or to force the next player to take his/her spins instead, "press your luck" is not only the name of the game, but also a statement of stratogy. After several rounds, the player with the most money and fewest wammies is the winner.
In Jim Kitchin's version of the game, you can choose how many of the three players are humans or bots (computer controled players). The game also contains a large number of fun sounds for spinning the wheel, getting prizes and getting hit with wammies, making it a fun game to play with friends.
Before installing any of Jim Kitchin's games, you need to download and Install the Winkit program found here This will create a folder where the other games are installed and a menue system for accessing the rest of Jim's games. it also installs the game of life, but if you don't want that, just run the Uninlife file found in whatever folder you installed the Kitchinsinc games in (C:\program files\kitchinsinc) by default. Running the other unin files also individually removes each of Jim's games separately.
