Creating the wheel comes with a few options. It can be created for decoration only by sticking the panels to the construction foam board and cutting it out. Place the wheel on a table in the center, and your stage is finished. I did use an extra layer of the foam boards to make it more rigid. Looked awesome!
If you want to make a working wheel, the extra layer might need to be wood and secure it to a retired office chair that swivels. Simply remove the back and arms and strap the wood base to the seat of the chair so it can spin. Any rolling wheels might be removed too. I chose to use bolts (5/16), large washers on both sides of the wheel and a nut on top to secure it. You can choose whatever size you want. There is more than one right way to do this. I just chose what was in stock and for the price. Those spinning the wheel can use PVC pipe handles to spin it like they do in the actual show. Making a working wheel would be fun but you might need to enlist the help of others!
Option: In the classroom use a large cube for point value and “Bankrupt” or “Lose a Turn” to save space. The wheel is eight feet wide. Get a giant dice here.
This set only comes with the wheel and the puzzle wall. Check out the other Game Show bundle options here.
