Nintendo Wii - Bowling time

Eight months after the encounter with my first Wii in Funan Singapore I had a chance to test-drive one in the comforts of my home ... Thanks bro!

Here's my best game to date ... 183. Seem to have caught the bowling bug, first Kiara Superbowl, now this!

At the Sedgebrook retirement community in Lincolnshire, where the average age is 77, something unexpected has been transpiring since Christmas. The residents, most of whom have never picked up a video game controller in their life, suddenly can't put the things down.
"I've never been into video games," said 72-year-old Flora Dierbach last week as her husband took a twirl with the Nintendo Wii's bowling game. "But this is addictive."Dierbach said residents love the Wii set up in the clubhouse lounge."They come in after dinner and play," she said. "Sometimes, on Saturday afternoons, their grandkids come play with them.
"A lot of grandparents are being taught by their grandkids. But, now, some grandparents are instead teaching their grandkids."The Wii has become so popular at Sedgebrook that on Sunday afternoon there will be a video game bowling tournament in the lounge. More than 20 residents have signed up to compete.
"We'll even have a fan for people to dry their hands before they bowl," said Dierbach, head of Sedgebrook's entertainment committee.
