The April Fools Ten is probably gonna be little things, like the letters on the puzzleboard are blue for a round, or the red-yellow-blue displays are reversed, or the players spin counterclockwise for a round. Little things that don't affect the game. All this silly speculation is just that: silly.

*wheel jolts to a sudden stop*
Charlie:  ...Uh-oh!
Vanna:  You just spun the Sajak!  You win 800 million dollars!
Charlie:  ... April Fools!

/I expect things like "the scoreboard has a different font" and "Pat's tie disappears for a round", etc.

Now, THAT'S a great game show idea - "Spin the Sajak!" Put Pat on the wheel and...
This isn't a plug, but you can ask me about my book.

Actually I was making a reference to the 2003 Whammy April Fool's show, but now that you mention it, Spin the Sajak would make a good "spin-off".

That's what I was thinking. Nothing nearly as elaborate as everyone suggests. Maybe a pound sign on a few wedges as a gag.

I think the better challenge would be figuring out how many of the 10 were added in post.

They'll probably make little changes like they did with "Price" last April Fools Day. For instance, the WOF Logo might be backwards in the opening credits.

I don't expect to see Chuck/Rolf/Bob hosting the first three rounds respectively, lol

...Where the contestants were so dense as to actually believe they had won some impossible prize.

Maybe all the changes will actually benefit gameplay. Or be actually relevant to gameplay.

But not this, which would be lazy.

Sounds like the bonus round to Jackie Rogers Jr.'s $100,000 Jackpot Wad.

I've only noticed 3 majorly obvious ones so far, they've really hidden them well.

The ten things, or at least most of them, have been spoiled already. I watched it tonight, and...

To quote a line from Red Dwarf: "Boy, was I suckered!"

I think the better challenge would be figuring out how many of the 10 were added in post.
Let's put it this way -- I came in expecting something really obvious and noticeable, not ten things that were all added in post-production only to appear for one-and-a-quarter seconds.

I did see one persistent change, both Bankrupt wedges were misspelled. That'd be very hard to do in post-prod
