The Wheel of Misfortune is located in the Haunted Woods, in the Deserted Fairgrounds. It's a game of luck/chance with the odds bent away from your favor. It costs 150 NP to spin, and you can spin it once every two hours. As you notice, 5 of the things you get are bad. However, you can win good items at it.
The game is run by a shadowy gelert who appears to take delight when something bad happens to the person spinning the wheel, and gets upset when the player actually wins something.

- The old design was meant to appear to be made from past victims, hence the blood, bones, and flesh-looking material.
- Although the gelert running the wheel appears to be a living shadow, in the Neopedia it states that his teeth are shown, and his nose is also visible, suggesting he originally was just a silhouette.
