Just got one for my wife's birthday, we all stayed up late playing on it last night, good social interaction game.

Just to prove my point about BMI being not the best measure it says I'm overweight (BMI 26) and I'm not.

Also says my Wii Fit age is 43! (+12 years!) Which I'm not too impressed about, surely it should use some more tests than just balance, centre of gravity and BMI?

i could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you (or the mods would kill me first, whichever happens sooner)

ANyway, finally got a Wii Fit. Does anyone use any accessories for it? I think stuff like the Yoga Mat are probably a waste of money. But does anyone have any recommendations for rechargeable battery packs?

Also, with dirty feet, I can imagine marks get shown pretty easily on the board. Are there any covers or such you can place on the board when using it to stop verucca dirt getting on ?

Loads of covers available that clip over the feet and into the holes underneath the board. Some are plain, and others come with foot prints or knobbly bits on for foot massage. Got mine from Game, but I;ve also seen different ones in HMV, Zavvi and on Amazon.

some of the ones on amazon have got bad reviews, hence the reason for asking really I'll check out the offers from Game

Amazon.de has it in stock for EU87.95 + postage if anyone's interested. I ordered my Wii though them when it seemed to be out of stock everywhere in the UK.

got mine, are people still using theres or is it one of those things that now lurks under the sofa?

wondering if i should get a mat to not annoy the people in the flat below, though if its mostly doing things ON the board, that shouldn't be an issue really.

I've had mine since July sometime, I go on once or twice a week or so, and find the balancing games by far the most enjoyable, particularly the ski jump and football heading, though the snowboarding and skiing are also great fun. My wife and I are having quite a keen contest in who can jump the furthest in the ski jump, and she's beating me. Bah!

I haven't played this for ages but does anyone know if there is a 2-player option?

Thinking of getting another board for this and other compatible games like Punch Out and Wii Ski.

well 6 months later, I have a wii fit, Just done the first session, i am rubbish at heading a ball or skiing

Which "games" are the best. i think i'd prefer something that said "here is something to do for 20 mins", rather than me pick 10 different mini games.

think i should also get some recharhable batteries!

The boxing workout is pretty good along with the '3D mario type assault course' (yes I forgot what it is actually called)
