Wii-diculous

So, David and I took the plunge and bought a Nintendo Wii yesterday. As soon as I plugged the thing in, it was love at first sight. I have to be very careful not to let myself get addicted! It's such a fun indoor, rainy day activity. David and I played tennis and golf, and we went around and around the Mario Cart tracks. I love that you can create your own character, now we have two "Mii's" that look exactly like us! I've always loved Nintendo, and almost fainted when I got a Super Nintendo for Christmas when I was 9 years old. Now I feel that same giddy feeling, there is so much on this game console to explore, and I just love how tactile it feels to move the remote around the screen. I'm Wii-dicted!!

So, all you Wii-ers out there, what do you recommend? What are the best games? Has anyone tried the Wii Fit?

Kristin. I've thought about getting one just for the bowling. It looks like that would be such a blast.

My favorite are golf and boxing.
Probably the best way to indulge with Wii is to invite friends over and dare them to a friendly competition (a couple of glasses of good wine help ...). It's so much fun!

I tried the Wii fit, it's nice&fun but not overly so.
