    Hi all,
    I really feel stupid (and old) with asking this.......we've gotten girls Wii for Christmas....family is getting games and such to go with it.

    Wii comes with one of each a Numchuck and a "remote"

    MIL got the new Resort game with 2 motion sensors for the remotes.....now I've seen 2 different things for the remotes, which do I want or do I have to buy the one and then the other to make it work??

    Also the sensors that MIL bought, will they work with the remote that came with the Wii??

    I feel really old and stupid, this is so NOT in my comfort zone....now ask me to make 20 pumpkin rolls in a week and I can do that, but this is just so confusing as I've never even used a Wii before.

    Thanks for any help and suggestions.

    Lisa

    I am not much better with the technology as you are, but will try an answer your question because we have a Wii, you need a remote for every game but the numchuks are only for certain ones if that makes sense. Its easier to have a numchuk for each remote you have incase you are playing a game that needs them with more than one player. We have two remotes and numchuks and that has been adequate for us, if we have friends over and are playing a game like bowling then we will just share the remotes.

    And all the Wii remotes are the same so the one your MIL bought should be identical to the one that came with the game system.

    I guess I'm just confused as some say "Motion" and others do not.

    Maybe I'll get lucky and run into a bunch of teenagers and they can explain it too me, lol.

    First, let me say that the Resort game is AWESOME!!

    Ours came with 1 MOTION and we had to buy another (since we have 2 remotes).

    The MOTION thing just slips over the existing remotes. There are instructions included on how to slip the MOTION adapter on the remotes.

    As far as I know the motion adapter works with the remote(s) that you already have with the Wii.

    The only complaint I had was that we have a charger that we set the remotes in to keep them charged (so we don't have to keep dealing with the batteries) and we have to slip the MOTION adapter off the remotes before setting them in the charger.

    So if I'm buying more remotes for the Wii, as I believe we've only got 2, I'll need to get 2 of the remotes and 2 of the motions?? Or do I just get the motions which have it all together??

    I've got a friend who's charger scortched her table where she had it....so I'm afraid to get charger.

    Have your MIL check the back of the Resort game to see how many players you can have at once. You don't have to have a motion sensor for each remote but that would limit you to how many players can play at one time on the Resort game.

    When we bought our MOTION, it did not come with a remote. But, that was awhile ago. They very well may sell both together now.

    Are you looking in a store or online? If you get it in the store, someone there, or the box should say.

    I looked at Amazon, and the picture of the remote defintely showed the Motion on the remote - but a quick read through the decription didn't mention it. But it was higher priced than the remotes were (I belive) so maybe the remotes do come with the motion now. Sorry I can't be more help.

    Also, we only have 2 remotes and easily play with 4 people using just 2 remotes. Players 1 & 3 trade off and players 2 & 4 trade off. Hasn't been a problem. But, that is with games like bowling or golf, etc that all 4 players are playing, but one at a time so switching off is not a big deal.
