    Wii Console + Wii Fit _ Sports and accessories

    Hi

    We have been given some money towards setting up a games club and the idea of a wii fit club was put forward.

    I have been looking at options but just wondering if anyone knows if any educational suppliers would do this kind of bundle? My easy option would have been to go to TESCO or Argos but we need to have it invoices to the school as it is some external funding.

    Anyway what do you reckon i should get and where from:

    My thougths:
    - Wii console
    - Wii fit board (presume you can only connect one board at a time???)
    - 3 more wii remotes
    - 4 nun chuck
    - wii sports
    and maybe some extra educational games?

    Anyway could anyone through any ideas to this please

    Thanks

    Sounds like a good idea - a wii is particularly effective through an interactive whiteboard/projector!

    It's also worth buying 4 remote rechargeable batteries: [ame=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Remote-Charging-Rechargeable-Batteries-Nintendo/dp/B001MY0RE2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1240920929&sr =1-2]Four Remote Charging Dock & Four Rechargeable Batteries: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo[/ame]

    (and if you buy a balance board, a rechargeable battery for that too)

    We bought 2 wii's and boards for use during out enrichment activities, also PE have used them for the odd lesson! They work well but just a pain as it's left to me to setup etc

    as far as I'm aware, only one. The games we have at home require players to take turns

    There are a few games I believe which allow you to use more than one board, but most of the ones using the board are just designed for a solo player.

    That's a myth - no such thing.

    Shahn whites snowboarding allows you to connect 2 boards! As does family ski.

    As far as I am aware the maximum amount of boards you can connect is two, as they each use one of the 4 controller connections and you still need a wii mote for each player.

    For music both raving rabbids tv party and wii music have uses!
