Just in case you're like me and completely ignore manuals and all the other junk that comes with games, you might want to check those Wii games again for a little card on the back of which you can scratch off a panel and get points for either the Nintendo shop or the Shopping Channel.

I have a feeling that I'm the last person on the planet to discover this, but my friend only pointed it out to me last night, and I had 6 unused game cards to reap the rewards from.

If you're interested, 6 games got me 1750 "Club Nintendo" points, which can be used to buy Nintendo crap like key rings on the website, or exchanged for Wii Shopping Channel points. For my 1750 points, I exchanged 1600 for 400 Shopping Channel points.

LOL! Nim !!

I went through mine the other night, I have loads, it was like christmas!

However, I was really angry to find that I couldn't buy Wii points with them because they had "sold out" and they seem to constantly be sold out on the nintendo site.

How can they be sold out of virtual shopping credit?!

I also noticed that they're sold out of LINK STATUES, requiring 15000 points to buy. That's 60 Wii games! Are there even 60 good Wii games? (no)

My first stars were from the Cube itself! Accumulated loads of stars in the past. Got about 11k or something but I cashed them all in for VC games.

Nim you slow bugger!

And don't buy that shop crap. The only good thing they had was a Zelda collectors disc for the Cube which had Zelda I, II, OoT and Majoras Mask. Annoyingly my Caroline got it and I didn't but then I got the OoT/Master Quest disc so I lolled all over the place.

I had enough for the Gameboy Palyer when that first came out but naturally each time I checked the catalogue (more than once a week)it was sold out. This went on for probably over a year.

Never spent my points and then along came the Link statue, but as we all expected, it was sold out. After that I just decided to spend my stars on Wii Points...

Yeah, I'm slow. I must be getting old! The problem is that I missed out on the last generation of gaming - never owned a PS2 or Gamecube. How long have they been running these points cards? Should I start ripping up my old SNES box?

GBA and Cube was when it all started. I did a lot of GBA importing (fantastic shop in Glossop!) so I missed out on a few points cards. It's also a good idea to steal friends and relatives cards if they give consent.

Right, I just raided a bunch of DS game boxes and now have 5 more of these cards. Didn't get one with the M3. heh.
I have a few import games. The Japanese ones have the code but not the scratch panel, it's just printed on a piece of paper. I guess import codes don't work. Pants.

US ones are quite odd too. You would get some kind of subscription to a magazine or something

Hey so I'm not the only person who stockpiles game boxes it seems! Might be the only one to still keep all boxes from the Amiga days onwards.

Ive got loads of GBA and Gamecube games with those point, but no wii to spend them on. Am i wrong in thinking you need a wii to get to the nintendo shop?

James you're not the only one that keeps your boxes, ive got all my Amstrad cpc boxes although we don't really own many boxed games (most are in plastic cassette cases)
