Friends visiting, going to play Wii - need suggestions.

I've got some friends visiting this weekend, thought I'd throw a little Wii party.

Any suggestions for games to rent that will be easy for non-gamers to play?

WarioWare, Mario Party, Big Brain Academy - any of these good?

I'll go outside the norm and say download Bomberman '93 from the VC for $6. It supports up to 5 players(one on a Gamecube conroller) and up until last week was the best multiplayer Bomberman out there.

you could look into Mario Kart 64 (VC)

balloon cart battles (4 players) are STILL awesome.

I disagree with the Mario Party suggestions. Game is not a "buddy" game unless/until you unlock some fun minigames. Even then, they are truly "mini" and last about 30 seconds each. I guess if you're renting, you won't be out $50 like I am.

idk, all my friends love playing Mario Party :/


SSX blur was a lot of fun. It's amusing to watch your friends do rave-like manuevers non-stop with the Wii controls

My kid's loved Mario party right out of the box...

Some of the advance sports games (like the new baseball one) caused them a lot of frustration (nine year old)....

Have fun!
