I'm new to the forum; I joined for this issue. I just bought Wii Party U and my family and I tried it yesterday. One of the first games we tried was Water Runners. The instructions say to put the game pad a "reasonable distance" from the TV, but no matter where we put it, even on a table, or which way we turned it, the game wouldn't continue. We watched YouTube videos to try to get some insight and the game seemed to proceed on its own. The Wii U didn't freeze; I think it is simply waiting for a confirmation it never receives. We have the sensor bar above the TV, about five and a half feet above the floor. We put the game pad anywhere from 5-20 feet away. Is there a distance that works for you? Is the game pad somehow not communicating with the console? Is the game pad defective? We've never had a problem before and other games work fine. Any insights are welcome. Thanks ever so much!

Maybe I should rephrase my request. Thank you to all those who are reading my post. What setup and distance work for you when you play Water Runners?

I have had the same problem. If you have fixed it can you tell me? If not, does anyone have a solution to this problem?

My lounge isn't that wide so we put the Gamepad at a right-angle to the TV about six feet away. The key seems to be to actually put the Gamepad on the ground as it looks like the IR sensors on the Gamepad are used to determine whether your remote/scoop is hitting the water and if you're short (like a child) getting the correct position when the Gamepad is elevated is difficult.

Thank you, TheWeaponX and Sean_Aaron, for your replies.
I have yet to get Water Runners working, but I have called Nintendo about it. They trouble-shooted with me and confirmed I have a problem and they are supposedly working on it. They email me once in a while with a request to call them about it, but they have yet to find the trouble as well. As soon as I get a solution, I promise to post it here. Perhaps if you called Nintendo and reported your problem, it might help them work out what's going on. If there's a way to send a private message via this forum, I can give you the tracking number.
