52 Dates a Year

Having fun together!

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! February 7, 2010

Filed under: Free,Home Sweet Home,Just Us — Nikki @ 8:48 am

Saturday January 30, 2010 was one of those Saturday’s where you just feel like being a bum. So…bum’s we were! We got into our comfy clothes, mixed up some Guacamole (to be enjoyed with our favorite Mission chips) and settled into the couch for a night of playing Wii!

First up…Super Mario Bros. Wii, the latest (and greatest?) Mario game out for the Wii. Chris got the game for Christmas and surprisingly, this was Nikki’s first time playing! One different thing about the Wii version compared to the good-ole NES version is that BOTH Mario and Luigi (and apparently 2 others) can play a level at the same time. The jury is out if that’s a good idea or not. 🙂

Once we were done with that game we moved on to Dr. Mario which we’ve purchased from the online store. Chris is quite a bit better than Nikki is, but luckily the game allows you to adjust which level you start at and so our games are usually relatively close after the handicap!

Chris’s Review
We stayed home for this week and had a night of playing some old school super mario and Dr. Mario on the wii.

The new Mario brothers let’s you play at the same time as each other. We actually found it pretty frustrating, we each got in the way more often than helping out.

Best Part: The night was free and was nice to have a night at home together. Working on a game together was a nice twist in super mario brothers.

Worst Part: We are both pretty competitive, and we ended up frustrated at the game, and each other after a while.


Nikki’s Review
A good night “in” is sometimes such a treat! It was fun to relax with my husband & use the Wii system which sits idle way too often in our house.

Best part of the night: Comfy clothes & the new Wii game!

Worst part of the night: Chris is a mean Dr. Mario player…ruthless even! But, I guess that’s necessary when I start out with 1/3 less germs to kill.

I would call the night a success. Delicious homemade guacamole, random snuggles on the couch and lots of relaxation!
