Play Nintendo Tour 2014

We went to the Play Nintendo Tour in Grapevine last month. There were six different areas setup for the different games plus a Mario Kart Tournament area. You could also meet a couple of the different characters like Mario or Donkey Kong but we didn’t have much time to spend here so we missed them but they boys still got to play all the games a little bit.

I apologize for some of the pictures being a little blurry.  My camera is broken so all new pictures after mid June are taken with my phone.  Sometimes they're good and other times not so much.

The boys each got a card with the six different areas on it and after playing a little and answering a trivia question they got that section signed. Once all six areas were completed they got two coins for the crane machine.

They started off in the Pokémon X and Y section. I should probably also mention that the Play Nintendo Tour was featuring the Nintendo 2DS so that’s what all games were played on. At this area the boys were asked if they could name one of the Pokémon. This question was easy enough, I think that anyone could name Pikachu.

After that we moved on to Kirby Triple Deluxe. The guy here was gone for a while and when he came back he didn’t ask the boys a question, he just signed their card.

Next they went to the Donkey Kong Country Returns section. This section had banana shaped bean bag chairs to sit on. I noticed that the girl here was asking a lot of questions so since the boys aren’t familiar with Donkey Kong I gave them a brief overview.

The next section we went to was The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Two World. I’ve never played Zelda before so I don’t really know anything about it but the girl here was helpful and tried to help them figure out the answers.

After Zelda we moved onto Yoshi’s New Island which is what the boys had been waiting for. In the Yoshi section they had some really cute Yoshi egg chairs. We had checked a couple of times to see if any were available but they weren’t and actually there was one little girl in one that had been there the entire time and even after we left she still hadn’t given up her chair. I think that Connor’s question here was what does Yoshi use to fight with and I believe JT got asked what color Yoshi is or maybe it was what does Yoshi come out of… I’m don’t quite remember.

This was where Connor had to sit before a Yoshi egg became available.

The last section was Super Mario 3D Land. The boys know Mario but they’ve never played it before so I also gave them a little background here. Connor got asked who the bad guy is and I had told him who it was but he forgot. I’m thinking that this is actually where JT got the color question, what color does Mario wear.

The boys both stood here first.

Then a block seat became available so JT sat.

After that they went to the crane machine but neither of them got anything. The boys had a fun playing all the games and now Connor of course wants a Nintendo 2DS.
