|                    : Balance your speed on the top of the blue until the

|        Description : Jump as far as you can. Or as "long" as you can, so to
|                    : speak.
|                                                                              
|        How To Play : When your turn is up, run with the controllers the
|                    : standard way.  Once your speed is locked, jerk the
|                    : controller upward as close to the white foul line as
|                    : possible.

|               Tips : Running at max speed is important; but the more crucial
|                    : aspect of this event is the jump itself. The motion is
|                    : very delicate - jerking very hard at all will result in
|                    : an over jump and a very short jump; but barely moving
|                    : will result in a bad jump as well.
|                    :
|                    : The only way to master the jump itself is practice,
|                    : practice, practice. You'll get the hang of it.

|        Description : The same as the long jump, but there's three jumps one
|                    : after the other (the first is called the 'Hop', the
|                    : second the 'Step' and the third the 'Jump').
|                                                                              
|        How To Play : Run with the controllers as usually, then hop (by
|                    : jerking up on the controller) the first time as you
|                    : reach the foul line. Then, right as you hit the ground,
|                    : jerk up on the nunchuk to accomplish the step. Then,
|                    : again, right as you reach the ground after the step,
|                    : jerk up on the controller again for the final jump.
|                                                                              
|               Tips : Like the long jump, this is entirely dependent on how
|                    : well you jerk the controller. Too hard or too soft will
|                    : doom you, and the happy medium is very small.
|                    :
|                    : With practice, though, you'll get it. In my experience,
|                    : the step and jump are much less sensitive than the
|                    : initial hop.

|               Tips : There are two main facets of this spinning and throwing.
|                    : For spinning, spin the controller as fast as you
|                    : possibly can (duh). The more delicate part of the event
|                    : tends to be the actual throwing - you might find you

|                    :
|                    : The key I've found is to throw a little bit later than

|                    : doesn't matter.

|               Tips : Throwing the javelin is delicate here like in the long
|                    : jump and triple jump, but also delicate is making sure
|                    : you don't cross the foul line. You'll actually keep
|                    : going 3-4 steps after you make the throwing motion, so

|        Description : As you bounce on the trampoline, execute tricks by
|                    : pressing A, B and twisting the controller.
|                                                                              
|        How To Play : At the start, bounce on the trampoline by jerking
|                    : upwards on the controller just before you hit the
|                    : trampoline on each fall. Once you start bouncing above
|                    : 7 feet, you'll begin to receive tricks to execute
|                    : involving press A, B and twisting the controller. As you
|                    : successfully execute tricks, the tricks will get more
|                    : complicated. Jerk upwards each time you near the
|                    : trampoline to jump higher and have more time to execute
|                    : subsequent tricks.
|                                                                              
|               Tips : As is becoming far and far more common, there really
|                    : isn't a trick to doing well in this event - just
|                    : practice. 
|                    :
|                    : At first, twisting the controller for part of a trick
|                    : seems very non-intuitive, but you'll get used to it.
|                    :
|                    : Jerking up on the controller to jump higher is crucial
|                    : to having enough time to complete the more difficult
|                    : tricks.
|                    :
|                    : According to Vgamer23, playing the event with a
|                    : character with a higher skill stat will result in a
|                    : shorter list of commands.

|        How To Play : This event can be divided into four parts. First, run as
|                    : usual (getting old, isn't it?). Second, jump off the
|                    : vault by jerking up on the WiiMote right as your
|                    : character lands on the springboard (this will control
|                    : how high you get and, in turn, how long you have to
|                    : execute tricks). Third, while in the air, execute flips
|                    : via one of the following motions: swing the WiiMote
|                    : down; swing the nunchuk down; swing both down at once.
|                    : There are flip combos as well, though it's rather
|                    : difficult to pinpoint what they are. Last, when you
|                    : land, make the running motion again to balance yourself.
|                                                                              
|               Tips : Running is still running. 
|                    :
|                    : Springing is like the step and jump of the triple jump -
|                    : swing the moment you hit the board.
|                    :
|                    : Annoyingly, one of the best way to execute tricks is
|                    : just to swing madly to ensure you execute a new trick
|                    : the moment the last one is done.
|                    :
|                    : The only general tip is to try not to be executing a

|        Description : Using your rifle, shoot the clays as they fly out.

|        How To Play : The event is divided into 8 rounds. In each round, you
|                    : need to accurately stop the moving dot when it's over
|                    : the center of the heart. The closer you come, the larger
|                    : your area of shooting will be for that round. Then,
|                    : shoot the clays as they are fired from cannons on either
|                    : side.
|                                                                              
|               Tips : Correctly stopping the dot in the middle of the heart is
|                    : critical to this event; or, more specifically, stopping
|                    : it within the two center rings is critical. You can
|                    : still be quite successful if you stop the dot in the
|                    : outer ring, but stopping it outside either ring is a
|                    : recipe for disaster. Anticipate the dot's movement.
|                    :
|                    : Then, for the actual shooting, pay attention to the
|                    : arrows at side of the screen to see where the next clay
|                    : will be coming from.
|                    :
|                    : By default, I recommend aiming on where the cannon in
|                    : your view is pointing; clays shot by the cannon you can
|                    : see tend to spend less time on the screen. Also, when
|                    : two clays are flying at once, aim for the one coming
|                    : from the closer cannon first.
|

|        Description : Row to the finish before the other competitors by
|                    : pressing the displayed button combinations and pulling
|                    : on the controllers.

|        How To Play : From the start, button combinations will be displayed -
|                    : Z+B, Z+A and A+B. When a combination is displayed, hold
|                    : down those buttons and quickly pull back on the
|                    : controllers to 'row'. Towards the end, the combinations
|                    : will disappear and you'll just need to row madly to the

|               Tips : Usually Z+B is the combination for the first 10-12
|                    : strokes. After that, Z+A will start to appear
|                    : occasionally with increasing frequency. Then, finally,
|                    : A+B will start to appear. Towards the end of the race,
|                    : the three will appear with pretty equal frequency. After
|                    : the buttons stop appearing, just rotate the controllers
|                    : madly to finish out the race.

|               Tips : Get a stress ball; this is, in my opinion, easily the

|                    : is extremely delicate and difficult to  master, and it's
|                    : very hard to hold the WiiMote steady while releasing
|                    : A+B.
|                    :
|                    : There are a few ways to counter this. First of all,
|                    : don't release the moment the crosshairs start flashing
|                    : over the location you want; hold them still for a
|                    : second and make sure they aren't still moving before you
|                    : release A+B. Try to hold the controllers against your
|                    : legs or a table or other firm object to keep them from
|                    : reacting to your own twicthes.
|                    :
|                    : As far as the wind, a wind less than 3mph tends to have
|                    : no effect; 4-6mph warrants a slight adjustment; 7mph or
|                    : above warrants a major adjustment.
|                    :
|                    : One reader also suggests releasing the B button while
|                    : aiming (the arrow doesn't fire until you release both
|                    : buttons) so that your hand doesn't twitch as much when
|                    : you release.

|                    : For the stamina meter, press B right as it hits empty

|                    :
|                    : For the turn, just swing down as soon as you see the

|               Tips : This race can be aggravating because you can't see your

|                    : there's a little demo alongside you as you swim, so you

|        How To Play : Use the joystick to move back and forth (twice to move
|                    : faster) and the WiiMote to jab at your opponent. Hold A
|                    : while swinging the WiiMote to parry your opponent's
|                    : attacks. If you successfully parry, you'll create an

|               Tips : Finally, an event with some strategy. There's a lot of
|                    : effective tactics to employ in this event.
|                    :
|                    : For one, back away from your opponent, then double-move
|                    : towards them and immediately jab; usually you'll get an
|                    : attack in, especially against the easier opponents. This
|                    : is especially effective when you back the opponent up
|                    : against their side.
|                    :
|                    : Another effective strategy is to hold A and carefully
|                    : watch for when your opponent begins their attack;
|                    : there's enough time to react and parry, forming an
|                    : opening to attack them; you can also just back up when
|                    : they strike, then quickly counterstrike, though this
|                    : doesn't have any benefits over parrying. This strategy
|                    : is especially effective when you're backed against your
|                    : own side.
|                    :
|                    : Less complicated strategies include jabbing madly
|                    : against them, or parrying madly until you succeed and
|                    : then counterattacking.
|                    :
|                    : Note also that the opponent's eyes will flash just
|                    : before they thrust; if you notice it, it will give you a
|                    : split second advantage.
|                    :
|                    : One reader suggests intentionally NOT using the nunchuk
|                    : and moving back and forth with the D-pad. I, personally,
|                    : find this more difficult, but if you're having trouble
|                    : it's worth a try.

|        How To Play : To serve, pull the controller up to toss the ball, then
|                    : swing a forehand to serve. When the ball comes back to
|                    : you, swing either a forehand or a backhand (depending
|                    : on the ball's and your player's locations) to return it.
|                    : Special shots include holding A to make it easier to
|                    : return a fast shot (although the return is softer), or
|                    : holding B to slam the ball (although careful timing is

|               Tips : Oftentimes this event will end up feeling like you just
|                    : have to return enough volleys until the opponent messes
|                    : up. Overall, this event is pretty annoying - the mapping
|                    : of the ping pong swings, especially the backhand, is
|                    : poor. The forehand is okay, but when you swing a
|                    : backhand, make sure to swing very, very deliberately -
|                    : no quick twitches like in Wii Tennis.
|                    :
|                    : The A special shot is intended to make it easier to
|                    : return your opponent's slams, so use it accordingly if
|                    : you're having trouble. The B special shot (slam) is very
|                    : difficult to time properly unless the ball is coming
|                    : slowly. To slam, swing a good half-second before the
|                    : ball reaches your paddle.
|                    :
|                    : My overall strategy is to hold the controller straight
|                    : in front of me (for each access to forehand or backhand)
|                    : while holding the A button while awaiting the opponent's
|                    : return - then, if they slam it, you're ready for it. If
|                    : it's not a slam, you can choose to return regularly or
|                    : attempt a slam in return.
|

|                    : The only thing that really changes strategy is the
|                    : superpower attacks. These attacks give you a way out
|                    : when you're cornered, but more importantly let you
|                    : completely blow your competitor off the stage if used

|                    : It's important to note that superpowered attacks CAN be

|                    : increased damage and the knockback.

| Concurrent Players : 1-2 humans, 1 computer (2 max)
|      How To Unlock : Unlock Sunlight Circuit (Medal in Satellite Circuit)*
|        Description : Just like the original table tennis, but with
|                    : superpowered attacks and a different scoring mechanism.
|                                                                              
|        How To Play : Play proceeds just like the regular table tennis, but
|                    : for scoring, instead of the winner of each volley
|                    : getting a point, the winner of each volley gets a number
|                    : of points equal to how many volleys there were in the
|                    : sequence - so if you and your opponent hit it back and
|                    : forth 5 times, the winner of the volley will get 5
|                    : points. Throughout the game, you'll charge up
|                    : superpowered attacked which can be triggered by
|                    : pressing A+B when the ball is near you. Different
|                    : special attacks have different effects - some make the
|                    : ball invisible for the return, some make it go super
|                    : fast, some make it take bizarre spins, etc.
|                                                                              
|               Tips : The strategy for this game is pretty much like regular
|                    : table tennis - the different scoring doesn't change the
|                    : fact that your goal is to win as many volleys as
|                    : possible.
|                    :
|                    : Some people say it's good to use your special attacks
|                    : when a volley gets long to get as many points as
|                    : possible, but I recommend saving your specials for
|                    : returning the computer's specials; they tend to be much
|                    : more adept at returning special shots than we are, but
|                    : using a special shot after they've used one guarantees a
|                    : return.
|

|/Free circuit is basically a free play of sorts in which you can choose (or
| have randomly selected) events for you to compete in against either the
| computers or friends.
|                                                                              
| Only events that have been unlocked otherwise can be participated in. The '4'
| and '8' refer to events that involve 4 or 8 participants. Typically,
| 8-participant events are events when all participants compete simultaneously
| but not directly against one another (such as races, where one participant's
| actions do not affect the other participants), or events where participants
| take turns competing. 4-participant events are typically events where
| participants compete directly against each other, such as tennis and fencing.

| As of the time of this publication, there are NO known unlockable characters.
| 
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Do you recommend buying this game?
| 
| I recommend renting the game first. The game is small enough that you can 
| unlock everything fairly quickly, so you may end up playing it for 5 days and
| never touching it again if you buy it. Rent it first, and if you like it
| enough to buy it, you'll still have your saved data on your console.
| 
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Are there any other ways to unlock given circuits or events?
| 
| Yes, absolutely. I, personally, unlocked the Moonlight Circuit before ever 
| even playing the Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury or Venus circuits. The methods 
| posted in this FAQ are guaranteed to work, but they are not guaranteed to be 
| the only nor easiest way.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Who's the best character to play as?
| 
| There isn't one. All the characters' stats add up to about the same, so no 
| character is overall better than any other. Some characters are better suited
| to some events; I'll detail which in later versions of this FAQ.
