    I'm a 5th grade teacher and I'm going to setup a Wii as a reward next year. Looking for some game suggestions, old or new. Mainly minigames that can be accessed quickly. Using it during lunch. I already grabbed the Raving Rabbid series. 4 players would be great. Thanks for any suggestions.

    WarioWare: Smooth Moves. The WarioWare series centers around "microgames" that are usually no more than 10 seconds long (Which means there's a lot of them). It does have multiplayer, with a few different modes (Can't remember what it is, but you should be able to find it on Google).

    Thanks for the suggestions, welcome to any more. I have an old Wii laying around, so it's already paid for.

    I'm mostly thinking "Big brain academy". Perfect for the environment. ;)
    (I'd mention "Bully" as well, but afaik, it's not a quick "pick 'm up and play" kind of game. Or gives the correct attitude ;) ).

    Further...since it's unknown who will get the wii, it's best to go with neutral games that appeal to non-gamers as well. So I'd go with...

    Wii:
    Boom blox (surprisingly addictive)
    Wii play motion (I'd stay away from wii play unless you REALLY need a regular wiimote)
    Wii sports resort (especially if you have multiple wiimote+ thingies lying around)
    Mario kart wii
    Wii party (doesn't get enough credit. IMO this one's way better than Mario Party 9).
    Just dance 1/2/3 (this is a MAYBE...either this'll be a favorite among the scholars, or it'll be passed by everyone. It's probably best to pass it unless you have at least two people there who actually want to play it).

    Wiiware:
    Bomberman blast
    Driift mania (you can even go up to 8 players at once, if you have enough nunchuks or other devices)
    World of goo (okay, this is single player...but it's very fun to watch others play)
    tetris party (you could go with the wii version as well, but they're identical).


    @[member='TDWP FTW']: those microgames are actually 5 seconds long, which makes them mostly a matter of wits. There are some longer ones in them, though. And of course multiplayer ones.

    BOLDED GAMES WORK BEST IN YOUR SITUATION
    BLUE GAMES WORK WELL, BUT NOT AS GOOD AS BOLDED GAMES IN YOUR SITUATION
    RED GAMES ARE MOST RECOMMENDED
    PURPLE GAMES ARE BLUE AND RED GAMES COMBINED

    Wii Games:
    If some of these aren't accurate, then I apologize. I'm going from memory.
    • WarioWare: Smooth Moves - 4 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • Rhythm Heaven Fever - 2 Player Max - 3 Save File Max - NOT RECOMMENDED IF YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE THE VOLUME MUTED.
    • Big Brain Academy - ? Player Max - ? Save File Max
    • Wii Party - 2 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • Wii Music - 4 Player Max - 1 Save File Max - REPLAYS CAN BE SAVED - NOT RECOMMENDED IF YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE THE VOLUME MUTED.
    • Let's Tap - 4 Player Max - 1 Save File Max - BUY NEW, AS IT USUALLY COMES WITH TWO BOXES THAT CAN BE USED WITH THE GAME.
    • BIT.TRIP COMPLETE - 1 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - 1 Player Max - 3 Save File Max - HAS AN UPDATE CHANNEL YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY ACTIVATE A GAME BREAKING GLITCH.
    • Super Mario Galaxy - 1.5 Player Max - 4 Save file Max - ONLY 1 PLAYER, BUT A SECOND PLAYER CAN ASSIST BY COLLECTING STAR BITS AND FREEZING ENEMIES.
    • Super Smash Bros. Brawl - 4 Player Max - 1 Save File Max - WOULD RECOMMEND GATHERING ALL THE CHARACTERS BEFOREHAND, DUE TO GETTING THEM ALL BEING A LENGTHY PROCESS. THIS WOULD ALSO MINIMIZE KIDS ASKING "HOW DO YOU GET TO PLAY X?" OR SOMETHING.
    Wiiware:
    If some of these aren't accurate, then I apologize. I'm going from memory.
    • Mr. Driller W - 1 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • Dr. Mario Online Rx - 2 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles - 1 Player Max - 3 Save File Max
    • Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - 1 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • Pokemon Rumble - 4 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • Tetris Party - 4 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • Toki Tori - 1 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • World of Goo - 2 Player Max - 1 Save File Max
    • Check Mii Out Channel - 1 Player Max - USED TO SHOW OFF MIIS YOU'VE CREATED. NOT AN ACTUAL GAME. - WIFI REQUIRED.
    • Netflix Channel - You most likely know the drill on this one.
    Virtual Console:
    These games will require a Classic Controller or, if you have an older Wii, a Gamecube controller. If some of these aren't accurate, then I apologize. I'm going from memory. NOTE: These games all save the exact spot you are in when you quit the game, save for N64 games.
