We bought a Wii console for Christmas and the plan is to add a Wii Fit in the New Year, mainly because I want to do the skiing.

However, we were wondering how you can compete against each other if you only have one balance board? Do you have to buy a second one?

Thank you for your help Oh Wise Mumsnetters grin

i am told by my work colleagues a nunchuck (no idea how you spell it) and the wireless controller are the substitute. I am with you with the skiing thing, apparently its awesome. If I can find one its my present to myself also!

Ah, well we do have 2 nunchucks, but thought you would have to have to balance on the board aswell (as if you're on real skis - precariously in my case wink)

We are skiing with 2 remotes and nunchucks - haven't connected the board yet. It 's good fun but you'd need loads of space to have 4 skiers going at once ! Not sure if board substitutes for the remotes or runs alongside. Can you do one on board and one on remote/nunchuck ?

You can't go against each other at the same time but there are leader boards on Wii fit and in our house competition to be at the top. If you want to go head to head it would need to be 2 balance boards and 2 TVs and even then you could only compare times.

Family Ski game - the Mii's and guests can go freestyle skiing at a resort or do skischool !

family ski is a separate game janitor - we play against each other using the controller + nunchuck, I've only played it once but it didn't seem very much like actual skiing!

It is a reasonable imitation, but with blue skies and not cold conditions, even night skiing ! You have to turn, stop , can pick lifts and runs, do moguls and tricks, chat to others and go on quests which unlock equipment and outfits. The only thing missing so far is the obligatory hot cholcate in the cafe !

You can't vs each other on wii fit. But there is a score board and you can try and beat each others scores.
