Someone brillianthas set up a website calledmiipages.comwhich allows Wii owners to get in contact with each other and swap Wii numbers in order to play against each other online.
Nintendo's online service requires codes to be swapped between friends in order for them to contact each other, which is a great way of making it a safe place for all ages to go online but not so great for those who don't have anyfriends with a Wii.
The solution is the unofficial miipages site which allows you to display which games you're interested in and your Wii number so that gamers can build up a network of new friends. It's proved to be a popular idea since the Wii's launch last week, with over 700 gamers subscribing in the first two days.
