Table Tennis: Match
- Players 1, 2-Players Simultaneous (requires 2 Controllers)
- Objective First to 6-points wins
The Wii Remote becomes your paddle in this faithful recreation of Table Tennis. The first player to six-points wins, though you have to win by at last two. If not, the game will keep going until someone takes the lead. You'll score a point whenever you hit the ball past your opponent, or they return the ball without it touching your side of the table.
The controls are simple: hold the controller like a racket and swing it just like you would in real life. To serve, either press "A" or flick the Wii Remote up to toss the ball in the air, then hit it toward your opponent. For more advanced players, spin can be added to the ball simply by rotating the controller either forward (curving the ball to the left) or back (curving the ball to the right) just before the ball connects with your racket.
- It doesn't matter how hard you swing the racket, so focus on your technique instead.
- Try adding spin to the ball every once in a while to keep your opponent guessing.
- To smash the ball, return a ball that has a high-bounce at the peak of its height.
In Your Face
For some reason, you get a stamp for hitting your opponent's face with the ball in single-player Mode.
- Smash the ball right at them and hope they miss!
Back From the Brink
Successfully return a ball that hits the edge of the table and bounces at an unpredictable angle, making it harder to hit.
- Pass the ball to a teammate when he's outside the 3-point line, then take your shot!
- Use our shooting tips in the Overview section above to earn this stamp.
Keep up a rally (hitting the ball back and forth without stopping) for 30 hits or more in single-player mode.
- Don't try making any tricky shots--you want your opponent to return the ball1
Draw with your opponent in single-player. According to the house rules, a match is declared a draw if neither player can get two points ahead and the score reaches 20-20.
- This is easiest at the lower difficulties. Try to take the lead up to the fifth point, then alternate winning and losing to ensure that neither of you gets more than two points ahead, thus ending the game.
Beat the table-tennis champion in a match.
- Continue beating opponents to eventually work your way up to the Champion. If it looks like you're losing a match, quickly pause to either start or quit before the match concludes to prevent it from damaging your record and setting you back.
