@Ronoh
Those are some well thought out, manageable points. Ever thought of sharing them directly with Nintendo? Wouldn't hurt.

Your first point seems fair, and I would consider something as often as once every 3 months fine as well. I love the idea of getting SpotPass Mii's out there on these weekends, but just how many unique Miis can Nintendo cook up? (BTW, Wayne Brady was a sweet surprise today!)

GameStop ABSOLUTELY needs to be brought onboard with the StreetPass Relays. Why not WalMart as well? The ten coins per day cap needs to be modified, especially in light of the 4 new games and for those who don't live in major urban areas. Offering a new free game, or maybe just simply giving one of the four away for free might not be a bad idea.

I have a feeling Nintendo isn't done expanding the StreetPass Relay system. It has really gotten better over the past couple months. With a little more time, effort, attention and fresh ideas, I can see it becoming even more successful and popular, for everyone - no matter where they are located.

Oh, one more idea. They need to run with the global StreetPass day. I grabbed many international Passes this past weekend. That was very cool.

For those of you in the U.S., the StreetPass relays are working very well since Nintendo made their tweaks. It normally takes anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes for the StreetPass to stick. Obviously if you live in a more urban area you will have better luck. Nintendo Zones can easily be found on Nintendo's website. That's how I found out that the Home Depot is a part of Nintendo Zone, and a really good one at that! Oddly enough, we have the hardest time getting Passes in most Best Buys. Go figure...

So far, this weekend has been an absolute success for me & my kids getting StreetPasses. We've hit Home Depot, Starbucks, McDonalds, Barnes & Noble... its working like a charm. We are getting hits from all over the world: Japan, New Zealand, Brazil, Italy, Spain, Great Britain. ... as well as all over the USA, from Hawaii to Virginia. We can't wait to go out tomorrow to get some more. Hopefully Nintendo opens the StreetPass floodgates on a regular basis in the future.
