I'm almost positive it has to be local co-op.

So I guess I'll stop the trend here.

If this is local co-op, count me out. If it's online, I'm in, if I can register that Wii points card my mom's been holding captive in time...

I tried the first competition and I'm not very good at Tetris Party as it is. I'll most likely pass this one, I don't know any Tetris fans. I hope other WiiWare games with online high scores will have competitions like this.

@AlexSays
No, not yet! I taught you could use pointer controls in this game, is that true?
The bad part is none of my friends like Tetris! They just want to play Gears...

Yay for Tetris Party tournaments! Boo for co-op tournaments :(
But hell, we're all gonna be in the same position, so I suppose it's fair.

One thing I don't like about these though is the way that you have to register your scores - which I kept forgetting to do - why can't they just register them from the console?

This will be good for me and my brother, since we both like the game a lot. And being twins, cooperation shouldn't be hard.

So just to clarify this is LOCAL co-op, correct? ONLINE Co-op would be awesome, no doubt.

I'm not TOO good at this game. I suck online because I'm always whooped by amazing players.

@SRPirate: I'd love to if we could! LOL.
