I picked one up a couple of weeks ago. My wife kept calling around until one store had some in stock. The one I got was part of a shipment of 12 the store had recieved a few hours before, the one I got was 1 of 2 left.

Everyone says it is a blast to play. I am looking forward to it Christmas morning.

Gryph,
I would also suggest just making a list of all the places in town, calling all of them, asking when their new shipments are expected in for such things, asking if you can can be put on a waiting list, and if you call and they have one, asking if they can hold it for you for 10 mins. And then if that fails, keep calling and asking if they have any in. hehe.

also...i was thinking. some of the stores might have a program where if another location has one in, they will send it to another location....maybe?

if all else fails, maybe one of these lovely people on here who have stated they have places in their towns with Wiis could buy it and send it to you (you pay them, of course.)

just some ideas!

Excellent suggestions, Dena....thanks!

I think I'll try the wait-list idea, for sure. ;^)

eTexas,

Won't you be busy reading a Kindle so much that you won't be able to...
Wii ?
Hi Richard! Still getting the Kindle! My wife found out I wanted it and I said:"Cool!" Anyway I do most of my reading at night, always have, so that will not interfere with my "Kindle Time" Like I say, the Wii is the only console that women have seemed to really like, the Nintendo guys did a great job in making a user friendly console!:popcorn:

This PB folk would love one but hasn't been able to find one to buy. Nintendo vastly underestimated the demand for them and hasn't been able to get production ramped up in time to get 'em in the stores - or online - in time for Christmas.

Mind, if you're willing to pay a whole lot more than the sticker price you can get one off eBay.

But I'm not, being the cheapskate I am. ;^)
Hey, Lady! C'mon over here. Whata you need? I got iPods, Rolexes, and Wii games right over here in the trunk of my car, cheap. Really! Just don't tell anybody where you got 'em, OK?

Let me guess....they fell off the back of a truck, right?

I saw a Wii being used on little people, big world. Looks fun but I would be worried I would do the same as the Southwest commercial, Baseball is my favorite. :lol:

Reminds me of the "Home-Boy Shopping Network" from In Living Color a few years back.
