Thanks, that sounds very cool. I love tetris. Used to play it so much, I would see tetris shapes in my dreams!

Make it a good day,

It's perfectly safe to buy your Wii points directly from the Wii--it does NOT save ANY information. That means that you have to re-enter it each time--but there's no risk of the Wii or Nintendo using your information when you don't want it to. (Unlike the xbox--which will still try to use an old out-dated card despite the fact that you've put a newer card number in it!! xbox is a pain!!)

But, the Wii works just fine that way--AND it's the cheapest option.

The Wii points are supposed to be simple---one point equals one cent, so 100 points equals 1 dollar. (again, unlike xbox where I think it's 80 points per dollar--just to make things "look" cheaper.)


The Wii points system is easy to use, safe to use straight through the system, and a LOT of fun.

Thanks for the heads up. What better way to get movement in combining wii fit with a game I have always liked too. As luck would have it I just purchased wii points. emoticon

Yes, the game ends up being $12 sort of. You buy points by getting these things that look like gift cards. They are $20 for 2,000 points. So you pay $20 + tax and then use 1,200 points for Tetris Party and have 800 points left to buy something else.

There is an option to use your credit or debit card to buy Wii Points directly from the Wii Shop Channel but I haven't looked into that. Sounds too dangerous! I think I'd end up buying every game on there that sounds like it might be fun. Easier for me to just buy the cards.

I decided to get into getting some WiiWare games and ended up finding a game that really surprised me that it uses the Wii Fit board: Tetris Party. Yes, you can play Tetris with your Wii Fit board.

Lean left or right to move the piece left or right. Leaning back or forward fast-drops the piece and squatting down and back up (similar to jumping over the bear-trap things in Wii Tightrope) rotates the piece to the right. This mode is a simplified version of Tetris so it is playing only rotating pieces to the right but not to the left. I'd say the workout you get is similar to the Penguin Slide, but maybe a little bit slower. Of course you have the added workout of squatting to rotate the pieces.

This game is 1,200 Wii Points on WiiWare. I think it is the only available Tetris game on the Wii.

BTW: playing this game with the Wii Fit board is only one of the gameplay modes. There are many other modes, most of them with the option of playing multiplayer.

Just thought I'd share an idea for a fun new way to get a bit of a workout using your Wii.
