    Thinking of buying another Wii for my dad's house, so I have a question. I have downloaded alot of WiiWare and Virtual Console games onto the sd card. Can I play these games on another Wii if I use the same SD card and swap? Will the games still work, without buying them again?

    Short answer, No. Games are locked to the Wii they were downloaded to.

    You will have to re-purchase the games on the new Wii.
