Wow. My Wii still works after all this time. A fabulous friend of my wife’s gave her this game on an extended loan, so on Saturday morning I checked the Wii, put the controllers on to charge, did the system update, etc. Then in the afternoon we played the game together.

I was Mario, she was a blue Toad. We certainly had a lot of fun with it, but I’m just slightly worried that it might be a bit to difficult for us. It seems to be easier when there’s only one of you playing, which seems wrong. Still, that’s only a minor worry for now and we didn’t stop playing until it was time for Doctor Who.

It’s really nice to have another game where we can both play cooperatively at the same time, too. We don’t do enough of that. Competitive games don’t work too well in our house.
