I live in Scandinavia which has no Club Nintendo.
What can I honestly do? Most games don't even come with a registration code.

Maybe open a UK account, and link that to your console, I don't see why that wouldn't work, since Europe seems to count as a single region in terms of the wii.

I think part of the problem with that idea Blaze is that games sourced locally won't have the registration cards in them -- is that the case N64 Gamer?

Club Nintendo just seems to be a waste of time IMO. The rewards are mostly useless trinket type nintendo things.

I agree. The amount of games that you have to buy and register in order to get enough stars to afford even the most mundane rewards is astronomical as well - with the result that I just convert all my stars into Nintendo Points.

Yes, that is 50% of my problem. I have 23 Wii games and only 5 of them came with a registration code. I think the reason these games came with a registration code is because the store bought them from the UK.
The other 50% of my problem is that I can't get any of the stuff to my door since I don't live in a Club Nintendo country. The only thing I can do is to convert my stars to Wii points but that is an impossible task when it's hard for me to get the registration codes to start with.

I know that I can buy the Club Nintendo stuff on Ebay, but honestly, why should I pay money for these things when other people get them for free? It's just not fair. I would love to have the Game and Watch DS game from Club Nintendo but the only way for me is to buy it on the Internet. And other people get it for "free" from the Club directly.

I know that the prizes might not seem like much, but at least you get a little reward for your games instead of getting absolutely nothing. I have bought lots of games and I would probably have a decent amount of stars now if it wasn't because of where I live. So instead of getting these "small prizes", I get absoltely nothing. Something is better than nothing in my opinion. Besides, not all the prizes are stupid. I would have loved to try the Punch Out game that the members in America could choose from. I would also have loved the Game and Watch collection for the DS.

Only first party games come with registration codes. If 5 of your 23 games are first party then that would explain it.

Oh yeah, you're right. Well I counted my first party games and I have 17 first party games. And then i have 5 first party games for DS, which gives me 5 registration codes out of 22 first party games. Besides, I didn't get a registration code with my Wii or DS either. :(

The "registration code" for Consoles is the serial number... at least that's how it's like for American consoles... my Colombian Wii registered without a problem in the NA Club Nintendo, as well as my GCN, GBA, DS, DSl and DSi, no problems with them...

and yeah, only first party games have codes, any other game won't...
