Calling Out All Mad-Skills Wii Gamers

Huh? What is this witchcraft? CNN is reporting that “Nintendo is seeking the best Wii gamers via a national competition featuring five of its popular games,” including Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit Plus, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Mario Kart Wii. Contestants will be divided by age groups, and two to four player teams. Of course, you don’t enter a competition just for the glory: where’s our prizes?? Don’t worry, Nintendo isn’t about to give you the lame prize of “the power of your heart revealed” or something stupid like that. Instead, winners “will receive an entertainment package that includes a flat-screen television and surround system, a new Wii console with Nintendo games and a Netflix membership.” Of course, there’s not nearly enough mention of family in that prize, and so it seems logical that “Winners in the family category also will receive a cruise for the entire team.” I hope you’ve been training grandma and grandpa, because you’re going to need them to win against other people in Wii Bowling!
