Just commentig to be the first ...

Just kidding, actually I wanted to say that I'd have bought this game long ago if I could participate on these tournaments, it's a shame they are restricted to just a few countries .

Hmmm. I would buy this game just to get free points but unfortunatley I'm terrible at tetris



EJD said:

I'm awful at Tetris Party but I'll have a go anyway. It's a long shot but worth a try I guess. I think the Shadow mode was a great idea.



Wiiloveit said:

Nice to see the scoring system, there, but I doubt I'll do any good in this one. I couldn't even do the first shadow tournament!
Either way, getting friends around this weekend to give the co-op mode one last try...



XCWarrior said:

I was in the top 30 for sure in the first go around, and am in the top 30 again for this current co-op tourney. So that's $24, and I"m coming back for more! Can't wait for the email to confirm my points are coming though.



timp29 said:

hehe im in #3 for the current tourney... but thats just 96 places too much effort.

With the current tournament over different modes (ie like tournament 1) do they average out your results over the four rounds? Or do they do prizes for each round?

@XCWarrior: AWESOME! Congratulations!

I came in the top 200 for the 4th Round of the 1st Tourney. I didn't try for the others. I'm gonna start trying now that there's more motivation and I feel a bit more confident, albeit I still suck at the game.

I wish there were a place we could all post our Wii Friend Codes...

Anyhow, I'd love to join this tournament. I'll see what I can do.
