This week, the Wii Mommies are taking a little fitness break to have a little fun!  We want to get a super huge Mario Kart Wii race going for our forum members! For more details on the event, check out the featured Fitness Friday post on the Wii Mommies website!

Today, I’m going to give you the low-down on how to find your Mario Kart driver’s license (friend code) and how to register a friend so we can all race each other!  We’ll have a designated section in the forum for members to put their license info and we’ll all be able to add each other (your Wii has to be connected to the internet for this to work) and you don’t have to wait until the race to play!  Make friends in the forum and you can race each other anytime you want!

With Mario Kart, you can challenge up to 11 other players online at once, regionally or worldwide.  You can get every little detail over at Nintendo.com but here’s the how-to to get this party started!

Install the Mario Kart Wii Channel to your Wii menu-

  1. Insert the Mario Kart Wii game disc into the Game Disc slot on the front of the console.
  2. On the Wii menu, select the Game Disc Channel to start Mario Kart Wii.
  3. On the “Select License” screen, click on the “Settings” icon in the top right corner.
  4. Select “Mario Kart Channel,” “yes”, and “Install.”

After you’ve installed the channel, you can then find your friend code (to put in our forum).  The Mario Kart friend code is DIFFERENT from the Wii Friend code, so be sure to take note of the correct code in order to race.

Find Your Friend Code (A.K.A. Driver’s License)

    You can find your friend code in the Mario Kart Wii channel.

  1. From the Mario Kart Wii Channel Select License screen, chose the desired player profile.
  2. Select “Friends,”.
  3. Your 12-digit friend code will be displayed near the bottom of the screen.

Next, you can register a friend by getting all the numbers from the designated area in the forum (TBA).  Be sure to get everyone’s number, because you never know who you’re going to race!

Register a Friend:

    You can register a friend code for Mario Kart Wii through the Mario Kart Wii Channel.

  1. From the Mario Kart Wii Channel Select License screen, chose the desired player profile.
  2. Select “Friends,” then select “Register a Friend.”
  3. Enter the friend code, then select “OK” to confirm.

After you have your friends registered, you can check anytime to see who’s online and racing!  That’s what we’ll be doing the night of the big race (you can tweet about it to the #wiimoms by using hashtag #thebigrace) and it’s just really cool to be able to see and race your friends!

See Which Friends are Playing Mario Kart Wii Online:

    You can view your Mario Kart Wii friends on a globe and see whether they’re currently playing Mario Kart Wii online.

  1. From the Mario Kart Wii Channel Select License screen, chose the desired player profile.
  2. Select “Friends,” then select “Find a Friend.”
  3. Your registered friends will appear across the top of the screen. Select the desired friend to view their current status.
  4. Note: Friends that you have registered, but have not registered you, will show up as question marks.
