    INTRODUCTION
    
    Hello all, I am FireMario12, creator of the past M&S Winter Olympic Games FAQ, 
    the London Olympics FAQ, and a Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Armor FAQ, making,
    this my fourth FAQ. If you guys have any further questions, comments, or data 
    that I missed, email me at awkerwin@gmail.com The big change in this game from
    the predecessor is the introduction of the Wii U and the Gamepad 
    functionalities (All wii remotes must be wii remote plus or with an attached
     accessory or else it will not work). There are 25 events in this game, 16 
    Olympic and 9 Dream. There are 4 all new Olympic events and all of the Dream 
    ones are completely new. The rest of the Olympic events have been altered 
    significantly or not much at all with new controls for most of them. 
    Personally, I think this game is awesome and better than the original, I just 
    wish that the adventure mode was better (Legends Showdown isn't all that fun).
    It also has a, while limited, online mode. Now lets get to it shall we?
    
    CHARACTERS
    
    No new characters have joined the games this time around unfortunately, so I 
    will keep the biographies from the previous guide. On the plus side, stats have
     become much more detailed. Instead of only 4 stats, there are a lot more of 
    them, and they differ for every event. So this time, I am just going to list 
    the general stats of all kinds for the character instead of specifics. And 
    again, my apologies for the Sonic character bios, I don't play his games so 
    I know very little about their backstories.
    
    TEAM MARIO
    
    MARIO: ALL AROUND
    The world's best plumber is here once again to compete in the 2014 Olympics. 
    Mario has extremely good jumping abilities and can turn into many forms like
     Fire Mario where he can throw fireballs and Boo Mario where he can pass through
     solid walls like a boo. Mario is the best at many things: golfing, playing 
    baseball, playing soccer, partying, saving princesses and many more things. 
    Because of that he is well rounded in stats which means he is an all purpose 
    player.
    
    LUIGI: ALL AROUND
    Luigi is the secondary overshadowed brother of Mario. Everyone thinks he is 
    just a taller, younger Mario but he has become very unique. In other games 
    he uses his Poltergeist 3000 which is a vacuum that sucks up ghosts which 
    Mario doesn't use and believe or not but in many games Luigi can jump higher
     than Mario. He is well rounded in stats and is a well rounded player.
    
    PEACH: SKILL
    Peach is the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. She has been kidnapped many,
    many, many times but has always been saved by her special one Mario. You would
    think that she would learn from it and set up her castle's defenses better but
     some people never learn. She is a very kind, generous woman with a big heart.
     She is very skilled.
    
    DAISY: SPEED
    Daisy is the princess of Sarsaland. She has been in only 1 nonsport Mario game
     and really is just a partner for Peach. Coincidently she is in love with
     Luigi Mario's brother. She is a tomboy and is out going and friendly. Somehow
     she got faster than Peach to become a speed character. She is obviously fast 
    and is good for racing-based events.
    
    YOSHI: SPEED
    Yoshi is a resident of Yoshi Island. He is a kind, friendly dinosaur who has
    helped Mario and Luigi in many adventures. He even helped when the bros were 
    babies and Baby Mario was dropped in Yoshi Island when Baby Luigi was 
    kidnapped. He has a very long and sticky tongue that he can use to eat 
    anything.  He can run at very high speeds and is good at racing-based events.
    
    WARIO:POWER
    Wario is a very greedy man who loves garlic. He is enemies with Mario for 
    some reason that I do not know. Wario loves money and will do literally 
    anything like go on huge adventures just for the coins. He also runs his 
    own company WarioWare which makes video games. Wario even has his own games 
    on Wii and DS.He eats lots of garlic which gives him a lot of stamina. He also 
    is very strong.
    
    WALUIGI:SKILL
    Waluigi is a very sneaky man who likes trouble. He is always hanging around 
    with Wario because 2 is better than 1 when it comes to causing trouble. He 
    likes to play with bob-ombs, and bullet bills to cause mischief. He is enemies
    with Luigi for some some reason that I do not know. Waluigi is very tall and
     lanky which gives him good reach. Waluigi is very skilled.
    
    BOWSER:POWER
    Bowser is the oldest and most evil villian in Mario's history. He has done 
    almost nothing but cause trouble for the citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom 
    by stealing Princess Peach. He has a variety of evil minions: hammer bros, 
    koopas, goombas, cheep-cheeps, bob-ombs, porcupuffers and many more. He is 
    not all bad though because on rare occasions he helps Mario and the gang 
    fight another evil villian. Bowser is very strong and is my personal favorite
     Mario character.
    
    BOWSER JR: ALL AROUND
    BowserJr. is the evil tyrant's most famous son. He is Bowser's eighth son 
    (the others being the Koopalings) and has been in most Mario games since 
    his debut in Super Mario Sunshine when Bowser convinced him Peach was his mom 
    and Bowser told him to steal his mom back. Now Bowser Jr. likes causing trouble
     to Mario when he is on his way to save Peach. Bowser Jr uses mostly giant 
    robots to fight Mario. He is well rounded in stats and is good at anything.
    
    DONKEY KONG: POWER
    Donkey Kong is a gorilla who lives in the jungle with his ape friends. He 
    has a very bad relationship with the neighbors the Kremlings who are evil 
    alligators who have taken his banana stash and other valuable things 
    countless times. Recently a group of musical tikis (I love the music they 
    play) came and took the banana stash so he and Diddy Kong his nephew went
     on an adventure to get it back. Diddy Kong is smaller and more agile 
    than Donkey Kong while Donkey Kong is bigger and more powerful than Diddy 
    Kong. He is very strong.
    
    MISCELLANEOUS
    
    MII:ALL AROUND
    Your own personal character. You can create miis to be anyone you want like
     a friend, you, or some random funny looking person.You can dress up your miis
     in many different costumes. All miis are all around for some reason even if 
    they are wearing a costume of another kind of player for example a power 
    character. They will have stats for a power character but still have an all 
    around special. Miis are good for any event.
    
    TEAM SONIC
    
    SONIC:SPEED
    Sonic is the fastest thing in the world and is here to compete in the 2014 
    Olympics.  He is a blue hedgehog. He can roll up in a ball and roll at 
    extreme speeds. He collects rings and tries to collect the 7 chaos emeralds 
    so he can become an unstoppable ball of speed and fury, Super Sonic. He always
     beats Dr. Eggman over and over again. He cares for others but is not very 
    serious and jokes around often. He is very, very, very fast so he is good at
     events that deal with racing.
    
    TAILS: SKILL
    Tails is the fastest thing in the world's sidekick. He looks like a yellow 
    fox. Tails is a mechanical genius and can build and fix many electronic 
    devices. He can fly with his 2 tails by spinning them together to create a
     propeller. He is pretty fast just like Sonic.  He is shy and not as outgoing
     but he still helps Sonic whenever he can. Tails is very skilled.
    
    KNUCKLES:POWER
    Knuckles is Sonic's power friend. Knuckles is a red echidna with very big 
    hands with spikes on them. He is cocky and is too confident of his power. He 
    runs very fast like Tails and Sonic and sometimes helps them in their 
    adventures to fight Dr. Eggman.  His fists with spikes on them can supposedly
     can break through rock and anything else. His fists give him strength so he 
    is very strong.
    
    AMY: ALL AROUND
    Amy is the self-called girlfriend of Sonic. Amy is a pretty pink hedgehog. 
    She is an outgoing and friendly girl who has a very good attitude. She uses 
    that attitude to cheer people up and brings people out of bad moods. She 
    apparently uses a piko-piko hammer and is extremely dangerous with it. She 
    also is good at predicting the future with tator cards. She is well rounded 
    with stats and is good for any event.
    
    BLAZE:ALL AROUND
    Blaze is a cat who is the guardian of the Sol Emeralds. She is a purple cat
     who is a princess of another dimension that is not Sonic's dimension. She is 
    has a good heart and tries to stop evil whenever she can. Her emotions 
    apparently are concealed in an imaginary bubble around her. She is well 
    rounded in stats so she is good for any event.
    
    DR. EGGMAN:SKILL
    Dr. Eggman is the most evil villian of the Sonic universe. He is very smart
     and is great at creating robots and evil machines and gadgets which he uses
     to fight Sonic.  He is trying to the Sonic universe become Eggmanland but
     Sonic always has to beat him (which is sad because I wouldn't mind seeing 
    Eggmanland). Dr. Eggman is the tallest character in the game and is very
     skilled.
    
    SHADOW:SPEED
    Shadow is the ultimate life form created by Dr. Eggman's great grandfather.
    He has almost the exact same stats as Sonic because he was created to destroy
     Sonic. He always says he is the ultimate or perfect because he was built to
     be that way. He looks identical to Sonic but to make him look more evil, 
    he was made black and red while Sonic is mainly blue. He is one of the 
    fastest characters in the game so he is good at racing-based events.
    
    METAL SONIC:SPEED
    Metal Sonic is the robot rival of Sonic created by Dr. Eggman himself 
    (isn't it strange that both of he and his great grandfather thought of making
     a Sonic clone but they both are completely different). Metal Sonic almost 
    has the exact same stats as Sonic because he was constructed that way. He 
    cannot talk unlike Shadow but Metal Sonic has a rocket booster on his back to
     make him go faster than Shadow ever could  (I think). He is one of the 
    fastest characters in the game and is my personal favorite Sonic character 
    and is good at racing-based events.
    
    VECTOR: POWER
    Vector is the head of the Chaotix Detective agency. He is a very good detective 
    apparently. He must be very greedy or he wouldnt always wear the same gold 
    chains over his neck for every Olympic games so far. He must also be obsessed 
    with music because he always has headphones. He is very strong.
    
    SILVER: SKILL
    Silver is a white hedgehog who has come from the future to come save the world
    from destruction. He has psycic abilities like being able to fly and being able
     to levitate objects in the air. I am kind of disappointed though because 
    Silver would be way cooler if he levitated his equipment during the events. 
    That wouldn't be very fair but it still would be very cool. Silver is a very 
    skilled character.

    faster you can go without running into obstacles (remaining at top speed).
    2. Cornering- This determines your ability to turn and go around corners. The 
    higher the stat, the easier it is to go around turns
    3. Rocket Boost- This determines how powerful your rocket boosts are. The 
    higher it is, the faster you go upon activating them
    
    OLYMPIC EVENTS
    As I said in the intro, there are 16 Olympic games in this version. There are
    only four completely new ones, with most of the old ones coming back with new 
    controls with the new Wii U Gamepad. New in this FAQ is the Recommended 
    Characters section, where I will give my thoughts on who your best choices 
    are and why. Stats are explained in the section above. In events with both 
    Gamepad and Wii Remote Plus used, I will abbreviate Gamepad with G and Wii 
    Remote Plus with W. Events marked with an asterick(*) are events that are
     available in online multiplayer. If you want to see what the stats affect, 
    look above at the STATS section
    
    Alpine Skiing Downhill
    Controllers used: Wii Remote Plus for all (recommended nunchuck attached but 
    not neccessary)
    Controls: 
    1. At the startup hold down B after it appears on the screen, and swing the
    remote down to start at GO for a boost
    2. During the race tilt the remote (with nunchuck if attached) left and right 
    to turn in the respective directions
    3. Lean the remote forward to crouch in order to go faster but with less 
    control The point of Alpine Skiing Downhill is to ski your way through a 
    course the fastest, passing through flag gates in order to not be penalized 
    with extra time. If you touch the small, short end of the flag in the flag 
    gate, you will get a boost and a big number will show up on the screen 
    showing how many you have gotten in the race. After getting three (do not 
    need to be 3 gates in a row) boosts, you will get a special boost that it is 
    bigger and faster than a normal boost, so obviously it is your topmost priority
    to get as many of those as you can for the best record.If you miss a gate, 
    you will get an additional 2 seconds on your time which can be important in 
    deciding if you take first or not, so you need to make sure you go through 
    all of them. Try to stay crouched (leaning remote forward) at all times to 
    stay at top speed. An important note is that you want to stay OUT of the air 
    as much as possible, being in the air drastically slows you down in this event.
    
    Recommended Characters (Alpine): The most important stats in this event are top
    speed and boosts. The turns are not all that hard in this event and 
    acceleration is not important. So speed characters are good at top speed, and 
    skill characters are good at boosts. Now the problem with skill characters, 
    is that all of them have bad top speed, so speed characters have to take 
    priority. A speed character who has good boosts and top speed is a great 
    choice but any speed character will do. An all around character with high 
    top speed and boosts will also work. Also, in regards to staying out of the 
    air, power characters do that better due to their weight, so they are good 
    choices as well (I personally do better with power than anything else in 
    this event)
    
    Ski Jump Large Hill
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all
    Controls: 
    1. Swing the remote down to initiate the sliding down the hill 
    sequence. 
    2. Hold down B to charge up power for the jump while on the yellow section at 
    the bottom of the hill and swing the remote up when you reach the edge of the 
    ramp to jump
    3. Tilt the remote left and right to fly in the respective directions. 
    4. Upon reaching the ground, extend the remote to the side as shown on the 
    screen to successfully land.
    The goal of the ski jump event is to jump as far as you can on skis from a
    large hill and to perform a successful landing. You want to start the sliding 
    down sequence when the wind is strongest, which is shown by the wind sock 
    being visciously thrown around. In the air there are updrafts that you should 
    fly into to get boosted higher and farther. At the drift you should tilt the 
    remote in the direction of the draft to get higher rankings (good, great, 
    perfect) and higher boosts. When you reach the ground extend the remote to 
    the side upon contact to get as many balance points as possible. 
    
    Recommended Characters (Ski Jump): The most important stat in this event is 
    speed, so that you can jump farther, with flying being the second most 
    important and landing being least useful. Given these restrictions, the 
    best characters would be a speed character  with high flying. or an all around 
    character with good speed. Any speed character or all around character will do 
    though.
    
    Skiing: Moguls
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all
    Controls: 1. Charge up power with B during the startup and swing the remote 
    down at GO to start
    2. Tilt the remote side to side to complete turns
    3. Swing up at the tip of a ramp to jump well
    4. Swing or tilt the remote in the given directions as shown on the screen in 
    midair
    5. Swing down upon landing to get a landing boost
    The goal of this event is to get the most points through speed, turn tricks, 
    and aerial tricks. You start with a turn section, then jump, turn section, 
    jump, and finally turn section. The time to turn is indicated by an arrow in 
    the snow surrounded by bumps. You want to tilt the remote to dodge the bump 
    when you are at the tip of the arrow to get the best results. In the air, 
    there are a variety of tricks, 4 normal and then your character's special 
    trick. The last one is difficult to pull off but gets you a lot of points 
    so you want to try to perform it. 
    
    Recommended Characters (Moguls): The most important stats in this event are 
    the turn stat and jump stat because they make your tricks get you more 
    points. The characters that excel at these stats are the skill characters. 
    Any skill character will work, but the jump stat is slightly more important, 
    so a character with a high turn stat but higher jump stat, like Eggman, is a 
    good choice.
    
    Ski Cross*
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all (with optional attached nunchuck)
    Controls: 1. Hold B to charge power at the startup, swing the remote down at 
    GO to start
    2. Tilt the remote left or right to turn in the respective directions.
    3. Lean the remote forward to crouch, ski faster but with harder controls.
    4. Swing remote up at the tip of ramps or bumps to jump
    5. Swing down upon landing to get a landing boost
    The objective of this event is to ski competitively with 3 opponents and be 
    the first to the finish in a bumpy track filled with turns. Try to remain 
    crouched for most of the races, but you will need to slow down for some 
    difficult turns in the middle of the course. At these turns, try to take the 
    inside route and run into the flags like in Alpine to get speed boosts.  When 
    you come across bumps (little hills with blue arrows on them) you want to try 
    to jump at the first to jump all of them and pull off a landing boost to boost 
    your speed. Try not to crash into other people, that will slow your speed
    down drastically. But if you are behind, try to get behind one of the people 
    ahead of you to get a slipstream (shown as a blue circle around your 
    character) which will boost your speed and make it easier to pass your 
    opponents.
    
    Recommended Characters (Ski Cross) : To do well in this event you need someone 
    who has great top speed, and decent cornering and boosts (acceleration is not 
    terribly important). A good choice would be an all around who has his/her best 
    stat in top speed. Or you could find a speed character with good cornering and 
    boost stats like Yoshi (good means about 3/5).
    
    Biathlon
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all with Gamepad needed twice during shooting 
    sessions
    Controls: 1. Hold down B to charge power at startup, swing remote down at GO to
    start
    2. Press B during the raise to go faster and expend stamina
    3. Upon reaching the shooting line (red line in the snow) the player who gets 
    there first switches to Gamepad, any others keep Wii Remote Plus
    4. (As Gamepad user) Tilt the system left and right to aim and press B to 
    shoot.
    5. (As Wii Remote Plus user) Tilt the remote left and right to aim and press B 
    to shoot
    6. (As Gamepad user) Switch back to wii remote after shooting putting the 
    Gamepad in reach in a safe place.
    7. Lean the remote forward to crouch on downward hills to go faster
    The goal of this event is to be the first to the finish in a combination of 
    cross country skiing and rifle shooting. However, you will notice that there 
    is a big bar with a heart that is your stamina bar. You need to utilize your 
    stamina to go faster but make sure to not run out. You will gradually recover 
    stamina very slowly when going on a straight slope but you don't want to waste 
    your time with that, you want to crouch on downward hills to go fast and 
    recover stamina much faster (but don't press B to use up more stamina). When 
    not going down hills just keep pressing B to constantly use stamina and go 
    faster and faster. When you get to the shooting sections, you are graded based 
    on time elapsed and accuracy. The more important thing however, is time, 
    because that time is also part of your final race time. You can rush through 
    the shooting, getting at least 'greats' with accuracy will be fine. If you 
    do well in the shooting parts, you will get a huge boost of stamina, so try 
    to use most of it (have it be at about 40%) when you reach a shooting section.
    If you have full stamina going down a hill, you should just keep pressing B 
    to speed yourself up.
    
    Recommended Characters (Biathlon): Stamina and Speed are very important in this
    event, cornering very little and acceleration not so much. Given that, Power 
    characters are a very good choice, because they inherently have a lot of 
    stamina, allowing them to use more of it and get along faster. Another good 
    choice is a speed character with good stamina because speed is pretty important
    in this event.
    
    Snowboard Parallel Giant Slalom
    Controllers: Gamepad (G) for first player, Wii Remote Plus (W) for any others
    Controls: 1. G: Hold down ZL and ZR (trigger buttons) to charge up power 
    during startup, swing system down at GO to start. W: Hold down B to charge 
    power during startup, swing remote down at GO to start.
    2. G/W: Tilt system/remote left and right to turn. 
    3. G: Hold down ZL or ZR and tilt the system to drift. W: Hold B and tilt 
    the remote to drift
    4.G/W: Tilt/Lean the system forward to crouch and speed yourself up
    This objective of this event is to race one opponent down a slope with lots 
    of turns.  This is not just a simple race though because there are restrictions
    on the path you must take. If you are the first player, the important flags 
    are the blue ones, second player red. The restrictions are that you must stay 
    on the side with the little part of the flag (hard to explain verbally, see 
    diagram below). The good and vital part of the flags is that they operate 
    like Alpine ones, meaning that they give you boosts if you run into the little 
    end. You need to utilize these boosts and drifts (they operate exactly like 
    Mariokart if you are familiar with those games) to get to the finish first. 
    For the best results, you basically have to go boost crazy and drift as much 
    as you can, running into flags along the way to get to the finish line first
    
    Diagram:
    | | | | | |					|=snow
    | | x | | |					x=part of the flag
    | | xx | | |
    | | | | | | |
    Basically you need to stay to the right of the x's because the smaller 
    (shorter) end is on the right. Going left of the flag will get you 
    penalized with time boosts.
    
    Recommended characters (Parallel Slalom): The boosts in this event are very 
    important, so you need good stats in those areas but you also need  good top 
    speed because it is a race after all. None of the speciality characters (power,
    speed, skill) fit this bill, so all around characters are the best for this 
    one. Any will do, but the best probably would be one whose lowest stat is in 
    acceleration and higher in something else.
    
    Snowboard Slopestyle
    Controllers: Gamepad for all (alternating turns)
    Controls: 1. Hold ZL and ZR to charge power during startup, swing system down 
    at GO to start. 
    2. Tilt system left and right to turn
    3. Swing system up at the tip of ramps to jump
    4. While in midair with the stylus, swipe the ball that appears around your 
    character to perform tricks and hold down the ball to stop near the ground to
    land 
    5. While on a grinding rail, tilt the system in the opposite direction that 
    you are falling to keep your balance
    6. While on a trick rail, swing the system up (or down) to perform tricks 
    on the indicated circles 
    This event, like Moguls, is based on performing tricks to get points and 
    getting the most points to win. You need to make sure you do well on the 
    aerial tricks, because those are worth the most points. You want to do just 
    enough aerial tricks to land on the ground safely, because if you don't, you 
    will get a harsh point off of your total for bad landing. You'll learn about 
    how many you can do at each hill through practice, but generally, at the later 
    hills you can do more tricks because you are going faster.  Now with the 
    grinding rails and trick rails, there is a star ranking over them, one to 
    three. The more stars the rail has, the harder it is to perform but the more 
    points you get. Naturally, the way to get the highest records is to 
    successfully pull of the three star rail tricks/grinds. They'll get easier 
    with practice. One thing to note on the trick rail (called box tricks) is 
    that you want to swing up when you first touch the glowing circle, not the 
    center like I thought for a while.
    
    Recommended Characters (Slopestyle): The best characters in this event 
    are the ones that are good at tricks, because they are so important in this 
    event. The skill characters are best at this because they have very high stats 
    in both aerial and box tricks which are more important than the grinding 
    tricks that others excel at. Choose one that either has balanced high aerial 
    and box, or one with slightly higher aerial, as those are more important.
    
    Snowboard Cross*
    Controllers: Gamepad for first player, Wii Remote Plus for any others
    Controls: 
    1. G: Hold ZL and ZR to charge power, swing system down at GO to start. 
    W: Hold B to charge power, swing system down at GO to start
    2.G/W: Tilt the system/remote left and right to turn
    3. G/W: Swing the system/remote up at the tip of a ramp/bump to jump
    4. G/W: Tilt the system/remote to be aligned with the ground on contact to get 
    a landing boost
    5. G: Hold ZL or ZR and tilt the system to drift. W: Hold B and tilt the 
    remote to drift
    The goal of this event is to race your opponents on snowboard to the finish 
    line. This is very similar to the Ski Cross, except for two main factors. One, 
    the inclusion of drifting helps you take turns easier. Two, snowboards are 
    not as good at jumping and the boosts are harder to pull off than skis so 
    the distance will be shorter and not as helpful. Take those into account and 
    play it like a Ski cross match (look above in that section if you need more 
    help)
    
    Recommended Characters (Snowboard Cross): Most important stats in this one are 
    top speed and either of the two boost stats, whichever you are better at. I 
    prefer drift boosts so I go with a speed character with good stats in drifting 
    as well, but you can try a speed character with good landing as also. Another 
    possibility is to you an all around character with speed as his/her highest
    stat.
    
    Speed Skating 500m
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all
    Controls: 1. Hold the remote in the pose shownon the screen to get a good 
    boost
    2. Shake the remote rapidly after GO to get an even better starting boost 
    3.Swing the remote side to side in rhythm to what is shown on the screen (wait 
    for the light to get to the top of each side and swing in that corresponding 
    direction.
    This event is very short and the goal is to get to the finish line before your 
    opponent.  To skate well, you need to get consecutive perfects by swinging at 
    the right time when the light enters the top section. If you get three in a 
    row, you will get your first special boost, next is gotten at 4 perfects, 
    then 5, and finally at 6 (there may be one at seven if it is possible, I have 
    never gotten that many after the fourth boost). This sounds easy and it is 
    once you get the hang of it, the hard part is in the 'Final Stretch' section 
    where the light and guide is gone and you must swing in rhythm from memory. 
    This is pretty difficult, but if you pull off a special boost in this stretch,
    the boost will be a lot more effective.
    
    Recommended Characters (Speed Skating): You need a character that is really 
    fast for this one. I dont even know why they include a cornering stat in this 
    event because you yourself dont turn at all, the game does for you so that 
    stat is useless. A speed character with good boost stat and low cornering is 
    a great choice because boosts are pretty important in this.I guess an all 
    around could work too, but stick with speed for this one.
    
    Short Track 1000m*
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all
    Controls: 
    1. Swing down at GO (no power charge up) and shake the remote to get boosted 
    up until your character slows down his/her arm movements
    2. Tilt the remote left and right to turn (left to go around corners)
    3. Press B to make quicker shorter turns (not recommended because they make it 
    easy to crash into the side and lose time)
    3. Press A to activate your special boosts when you receive them
    This is a very fast-paced skating race around an oval track. The main thing 
    you need to do is go around the corners well so that you don't slow down a lot 
    and try not to crash into others for the same reason. Another important part 
    is after the intial turn there will be blue lines in the ice that you should 
    try to skate in for as long as possible because they charge up your special 
    bar meter and your special moves are very important. The best use of the 
    special move is to use them in going around corners because they make your 
    controls easier and faster to go around the semi-difficult to get around 
    corners. Try to get an early lead so that you won't have to deal with fighting 
    with your opponents over skating on the blue line and making sharp turns.
    
    Recommended Characters (Short Track): Speed Characters are again, like Speed 
    Skating, your best bet. However, this time you have to take into account your 
    character's cornering stat as that is a crucial part of the race. So you want 
    to use a character with great speed and decent boosts and cornering, I like 
    using Yoshi for this one for that reason.
    
    Figure Skating Singles
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all
    Controls: 1. Swing down to start
    2. When yellow arrows appear around your character and 'STEP' is at the top
     of the screen, swing the remote in the direction of the arrow when the small 
    circle at the start closes around it (it will go to the rhythm most of the 
    time if my description is confusing).
    3. When 'SPIRAL' appears at the top of the screen, balance the remote on the 
    pink line to avoid falling
    4. When 'JUMP' appears, swing the remote at the center of the glowing red 
    circles and spin it quickly while in midair to perform spin jumps.
    5. When 'SPIN' appears, spin the remote quickly to perform a spin
    6. When 'WAVE' appears, extend the remote to your side and raise and lower 
    it to collect the blue music notes.
    7. When 'POSE AT 0' appears, get ready to spin for a while and then pose as 
    shown on the screen.
    The objective of this game is to score the most points through tricks, moves 
    and jumps. This game is very music based so you need to get into the music to 
    do better with steps. Yellow steps are slower than red steps, which you need 
    to be quick with. I personally get the best score in the topmost song, the 
    Meditation song. I can't get higher scores on any of the other songs even with 
    perfect combos throughout the whole thing
    
    Recommended Characters (Figure Skating Singles): The best stat in this event 
    is jumping so I suggest you use skill characters with high jumping and at 
    least decent rhythm and balance (Peach is my favorite figure skater). Also, 
    skill characters always seem to do better in events using points like this 
    one. 
    
    Figure Skating Pairs
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all
    Controls: 1. Swing down to initiate the performance
    2. When yellow arrows appear around your character and 'STEP' is at the top of
     the screen, swing the remote in the direction of the arrow when the small 
    circle at the start closes around it (it will go to the rhythm most of the 
    time if my description is confusing).
    3. When 'JUMP' appears, swing the remote up when you reach the center of the 
    glowing red circle
    4. When 'SPIRAL' appears at the top of the screen, balance the remote on the 
    pink line to avoid falling
    5. When 'WAVE' appears, extend the remote to your side and raise and lower 
    it to collect the blue music notes.
    6. When 'HOLD HANDS' appears, if playing with 2 players, hold the same remote 
    and hold A, if solo just hold A. 
    7. When 'PAIR WAVE' appears, hold hands (6, above) and swing the remote up and 
    down to the music (you will automatically get the music notes, focus on the 
    music)
    8. When 'LIFT' appears, let go of A, switch back to your corresponding 
    remotes, and pose with the pose on the screen
    9. When ' ' appears, hold hands (6, above) and swing the remote together up 
    at the center of the glowing red circles.
    10. When 'DEATH SPIRAL' appears, hold hands and have the person playing the 
    girl, circle the person playing the guy (or just move the remote in a circular 
    direction while holding A)
    Man thats a lot of controls. Anyway, the key to this game is working together 
    and syncronizing your movements to the rhythm and each other. This event is 
    pretty hard but very entertaining with some of the character matchups you can 
    have. Unfortunately, they don't let you have two male or two female characters 
    perform in this event, just one of each. You want to have a priority on #'s 
    7-10, because those are the most important and hardest ones that give the most 
    points and require good teamwork to pull off.
    
    Recommended Characters (Figure Skating Pairs): The stats of the characters are 
    the exact same as Figure Skating Singles and the event is very similar, so the 
    same character recommendation applies, skill characters.
    
    Skeleton
    Controllers: Gamepad for all (alternating)
    Controls: 1. Hold ZL and ZR at the beginning to charge power, swing down at 
    GO to start.
    2. Rapidly tap ZL and ZR to run until you get a ranking (good, great, etc) 
    after GO
    3. Swing system up at the red line to board the sled.
    4. Tilt the system left and right to turn
    This event involves riding on a one-person sled down a track to beat your 
    opponent's time.Your TV screen will show the view from behind your character, 
    while the Gamepad shows the view as seen by your character. I recommend you 
    look at the Gamepad. Anyway, the big thing you will notice is the big 
    glowing green or orange line. What you want to do is stay on this line to 
    charge up boosts which make you go much faster. At first, you will see this 
    line is made up of 5 lines, you want to stay on the middle one to charge your 
    power faster. Same applies to when it splits into three and then one. Once 
    your boost is activated, the meter will start shrinking, to slow it down, you 
    want to stay on the glowing line, especially the middle one. This slows the 
    boost from ending so that you are faster for a longer period of time. That's 
    all there is to it. If you get good at this, you should be able to pull off 
    at least four solid boosts.
    
    Recommended Characters (Skeleton) : Sturdiness is surprisingly important in 
    this event, it makes it harder to veer you off of the line when you are on 
    it. That being the case, power characters are your best bet. Try to use one 
    with good speed to because that's important too, don't worry too much about 
    turning.
    
    Bobsleigh
    Controllers: Gamepad for first player (leader), Wii Remote Plus for any 
    others
    Controls: 1. G: Hold ZL and ZR to charge up power, swing down at GO to start. 
    W: Hold B to charge up power, swing down at GO to start
    2. G: Rapidly tap ZL and ZR to run fast until you get a ranking. W: Rapidly 
    shake the remote up and down to run until you get a ranking.
    3. G/W: Swing up upon reaching the red line to board the bobsleigh
    4. G/W: Turn system/remote left and right to turn
    5. G only: Tap ZL to signal to your teammates to turn left, Tap ZR to signal 
    to your teammates to turn right
    This is similar to the skeleton event in controls and feel. The difference is 
    you actually have to work together in this one and the boosting system is 
    slightly different. This time, you need to ride on short glowing lines as 
    long as you can to get more powerful boosts which make you go faster.You want 
    to make turns much earlier in this event than you normally would in other 
    events, because your vehicle is giant, and it has bad turning. If you hit a 
    wall, you will slow down severely. Other than that, there isn't much else 
    to it.
    
    Recommended Characters (Bobsleigh): If you are playing solo, only the stats 
    of your first character will affect anything so you want a power character 
    for their strong sturdiness stat which is just as useful in this as in 
    Skeleton.  However, if you are playing multiplayer, the other character's 
    stats will affect your vehicle, so you want a character with good speed and 
    turning such as a speed or all around (because sturdiness is only really 
    important for the leader).

    The objective of this game is to work with your team to score more goals then 
    your opponents. Your opposing goalie (Shy Guy) is pretty good at defending 
    random shots.  So how to counter? There are 4 solid ways I have found at 
    scoring. One involves charging up your powershot meter and shooting a power 
    shot. To charge up your power meter, you need to perform tricks. The dash 
    trick (#7) is good for when you have the puck and need to break away from your 
    opposition. The flip trick (#6) is good for when you get the puck defending 
    your goal to change directions to run to the opposing side. The spin trick (#8)
    is best for when you are surrounded and need to clear some room. If you 
    perform tricks well, you will power your meter, and lower your opponent's so 
    do them often. Regardless of how you do it, once your meter is charged you 
    can press A to activate your powershot. What you want to do is get close to 
    the goalie without any interfering players in the way (except possibly one of 
    your own). Just shoot for where Shy Guy isn't. An alternative is power shooting
    towards a teammate who will then shoot I believe an instant goal (or at least 
    a very likely goal). The other three methods are shown in diagrams below.
    
    Diagram 1:			-=ice
    -------x				x=starting character
    -------|     G]			|=pass route
    -------|        ]			o=second character who immediately shoots				
    -------|        ]			G=Goalie
    -------o				]=goal
    
    Basically, you want to shoot where the goalie won't be fast enough to get to 
    (in this case the bottom) so that you can easily score. Also works on the flip 
    side too (start at bottom and pass to top).
    
    Diagram 2: 
    
    -------x  G]					-=ice
    -------|     ]				                x=starting position
    --------o   ]					|=Travel route (skating)
    					G=Goalie
    					o=stop position and shoot here
    This is very similar to the previous one but this time you use just one player 
    who is fast to skate from top to bottom of the goal (or bottom to top) and 
    shoot at the edge to score.Just be careful to not run into the goalie and 
    give it to him.
    
    Diagram 3: 
    
    --------					-=ice	     
    -------x            ]				x=character                  
    --------         G ]				G=Goalie
    --------           o]				]=goal
    --------					o=where the shot should end up
    
    This one is hard to diagram, but essentially, you want to be near the center 
    and shoot in the opposite area with a strong shooter. In the example above, 
    the shooter is slightly above the center, so he shoots to the bottom of the 
    goal with a strong shot to probably score.This one is the least reliable.
    
    Recommended Characters (Ice Hockey): The most important stats in this one are 
    speed and shooting ability. Speed makes a lot of scoring oppurtunities easier 
    and shooting can snag a couple extra goal as well. So you should make your 
    team have a balance of speed and power characters (or possibly switching out 
    the powers for some all arounds for more speed).
    
    Curling
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all, Gamepad is used for the layout of the 
    area
    Controls: 1. Swing remote up to test strength (practice), hold B and swing for 
    the real throw.
    2. Tilt the remote left or right to curve the stone in the given direction
    3. Shake the remote to sweep (push the stone farther by making the ice easier 
    to travel on)
    4. Press - to initiate 'Strategy Time' on the Gamepad
    5. Using the stylus during Strategy Time, you can draw a line that you want 
    the stone to travel on, or place markers to tell when to sweep or the final 
    location
    Curling is a little known very complicated strategy and teamwork sport. The 
    goal of this event is to earn points by having your stone be closer to the 
    center of the house (big red/white/blue circle). The more you have closest 
    to the center, the more points you will earn. However if an opposing stone 
    is closer than one of your second stones but you have one closest to the 
    center, you will only get one point. The person throwing first has the 
    disadvantage over the player throwing last because the second throwing player 
    can easily knock out stones thrown by the first player. Players alternate 
    between the 3 different positions: Thrower, Sweeper, and Planner. There 
    are 2 sweepers whose sweeping stats affect how far your stone will go from 
    sweeping. Thet thrower obviously throws the stone, and the Planner creates a 
    strategy (if you want it, it is not needed) Every game is different, so it is
    hard for me to give stategies for everything but here are some general ones.
    A: If you are starting, Try putting a guard stone in front of the house. If 
    you need a reference, watch the computer, they always do that. However, you 
    should throw the guard stone to be somewhere in the front of the blue part 
    of the house so that it is at least in the game somewhat.
    B: If your opponent throw a stone and curves it behind your guard stone, hit 
    the guard stone with one of your stones as hard as you can so that the guard 
    stone will knock the opposing stone out of the way and rest in the center 
    while the second stone becomes the new guard stone.
    C: If your opponent throws a stone in the back of the red circle in the house, 
    try to throw your stone right in front of it (WITHOUT knocking it out). That 
    way, you should be closer to the center than your opponent, and it will be 
    extremely difficult for your opponent to knock yours out. 
    D: If your opponent has a dangerous stone near the center that is not defended 
    and not in the back, use one of yours to knock theirs out of the house to rid 
    the danger (but beware of your opponent doing the same to you).
    E: Hit the side of an opposing stone to knock theirs to the side and yours 
    to the opposite side. You can use this to your advantage by hitting theirs 
    to the side out of the house (thereby out of it and useless) and yours close(r)
    to the center.
    F: Try to defend your stones in the center by putting another of your stones 
    in front of it, making it difficult to knock away (and also giving you a 
    chance of getting 2 points).
    
    If you need other strategies, go to strategy time in game and hit 'Optimal 
    Plan' which will tell you the best plan (sometimes). When you get good, follow 
    your instincts, because you can probably come up with better plans than the 
    computer
    
    Recommended Characters (Curling): All characters are generally act the same in 
    this event. Throwing is good for knocking stones away so having a power 
    character wouldn't hurt. Sweeping ability is also very good if you undershoot 
    a lot (like I do) because it boosts the effects of sweeping so speed characters
    are good too. The characters aren't vastly different in this one, so just 
    choose a team and get at it.
    
    DREAM EVENTS
    These events are much more fun fantasy versions of the normal events set in 
    Mario or Sonic stages/levels. Generally they use items or some gimmick to make 
    it more interesting than the normal event. Again, I will use the abbreviations
    G for Gamepad and W for Wii Remote Plus in the controls section, and I will 
    include the character recommendations section as well. Look above in the STATS
    section if you want to know what the stats affect. An asterick (*) is placed 
    by Winter Sports Champion Race to signify it is available online
    
    Winter Sports Champion Race(*)
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all
    Controls: 1. Charge up power with B, swing remote down at GO to start. 
    2. Tilt the remote left and right to turn
    3. Swing the remote up at the tip of ramps to jump
    4. Lean/Tilt the remote forward to crouch and go faster
    5. (Snowboard only) Tilt the remote left and right on grinding rails to stay 
    balanced
    6. (Ski Only) Swing the remote down upon landing to get a landing boost.
    7. (Snowboard only) Align your snowboard to the ground through tilting the 
    remote to get a landing boost
    8. (Snowboard only) Hold B and tilt the remote to drift
    9. (Speed Skates only) Press A to activate your special boost
    This is a very interesting race where 4 competitors race through a course 
    using 
    Skis, Snowboards, Speed Skates, and Bobsleighs. How does this work? Well you 
    will shortly see in the race that there are 4 doors to enter, 2 white/light 
    blue, and 2 dark blue. The white doors will contain either a snowboard or 
    skis, and the blue doors will contain either ice skates or bobsleighs.The 
    color signifies what the vehicle or equipment is good at travelling: 
    Skis/snowboards are fast on snow and slow on ice, Skates/Bobsleighs are fast on
    ice and slow on snow. The last section of the race which is neither ice or 
    snow is neutral, all equipment travels equally fast on it. If you are in 
    first, it is all chance what you receive upon going through any door (but it 
    will match with the color). However, if you are lower than first, when the 
    first player goes through a door, the spinning roulette above the door of the 
    same color will stop and show what you will get upon entering. Use this to your
    advantage to get what you want. Now about the different equipment. Skis are 
    very balanced and have no special characteristics, except that they excel at 
    jumping and can jump greater distances than any other can. Snowboards have poor
    jumping ability but can drift and take shortcuts via grinding rails than other
    equipment can not. Speed Skates are slower than all the others, but they can 
    take shortcuts (thin strips of ice) that other equipment can't (except 
    bobsleigh if you are really skilled and lucky). To compensate the low speed, 
    the game gives you a special boost upon receiving ice skates than you can 
    activate to singificantly boost your speed (just don't use them on the 
    shortcuts or else you will fall off). Bobsleighs are big and can push 
    opponents aside which can be very fun and annoying to your opponents ;). 
    They also can break walls on ice easily that other equipment can't, but the 
    bobsleigh is so big that turning is difficult (I also believe it is the 
    fastest). To help you travel the best routes for your equipment, beacons of 
    light will appear showing you where you can utilize your equipment's advantages
    (such as showing you where grinding rails or ice skate shorrtcuts are). What's
     the best equipment to use? There is no best, it all depends on what you are 
    good at using and that you make sure that you stay on either ice or snow 
    depending on your equipment
    
    Recommended Characters (WSC Race): There is no best character or group of 
    characters in this event. It all is dependant on what you are good at. I 
    personally like using skis and ice skates so I like the speed characters. 
    The skills are good at snowboarding and the powers are good at bobsleigh, 
    all around obviously decent at everything, so choose depending on what you 
    like and can use the best.

    This event is just a more interesting version of snowboard cross in the famous 
    Mushroom Bridge course from Mario Kart Double Dash. That being said, there 
    are a lot of boosts, jumps, and grinding rails that you will need to use to 
    speed up and get good records. One thing you will notice is that there are 
    sections of the course made up of a light blue panel, and that when you ride 
    on it, it will create a yellow path. This yellow path is a boost line that you
    can use in the second lap of the race to speed yourself up. You want to 
    collect as many coins as you can, because they speed you up and make the 
    dash panels more powerful and long lasting. Here are some important ramps 
    and shortcuts to take. First after the cannon shot and a couple turns there 
    will be a ramp with lots of coins, jump it and travel staright and land on 
    the red and yellow dash panels and it will speed you up tremendously but make 
    it much harder to control for a little bit so be careful. Next, a la Double 
    Dash, take the boosts on either of the bridge railings (either will work, I 
    find the left one easier to take) and stay on it until you reach a ramp (dont 
    jump on this one, it will automatically). This ramp will make you do some cool 
    tricks like in the cannon and give you a huge boost over your opponents.
    Finally, you will see a ramp with a grinding rail, you want to take that rail 
    and the following dash panels to the finish line and repeat the process 
    on the second lap. This should get you a pretty good time.
    
    Recommended Characters (Groove Pipe): This event has identical stats to 
    snowboard cross and the uses of the stats are the same, so you want to use 
    either a good drifting speed character, or a good speed all around character.
    
    Mario Figure Skating Spectacular
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all
    Controls: 1. When yellow arrows appear around your character and 'STEP' is at 
    the top of the screen, swing the remote in the direction of the arrow when the 
    small circle at the start closes around it (it will go to the rhythm most of 
    the time if my description is confusing).
    2. When 'SPIRAL' appears at the top of the screen, balance the remote on the 
    pink line to avoid falling
    3. When 'JUMP' appears, swing the remote at the center of the glowing red 
    circles and spin it quickly while in midair to perform spin jumps.
    4. When 'SPIN' appears, spin the remote quickly to perform a spin
    5. When 'WAVE' appears, extend the remote to your side and raise and lower 
    it to collect the blue music notes/coins.
    6. When 'POSE AT 0' appears, get ready to spin for a while and then pose 
    as shown on the screen.
    This event controls and is incredibly similar to normal Figure skating except 
    that the competitors go through a Mario adventure to save some Toads from 
    Kamek and Bowser (which is kinda awkward when you play as Bowser...). If you 
    are having trouble seeing the steps by looking at your character then look at 
    your opponents because they have the same moves (big bulky dark ones like 
    Bowser and DK are easier).Get into the music and perform your moves to the 
    beat (helps if you know these songs, 3D Land was awesome)
    
    Recommended Characters (M Figure Skating): The stats are identical to normal 
    Figure skating and the importances are still the same. So, keep using skill 
    characters to figure skate and get the best results.
    
    Sonic's Figure Skating Spectacular
    Controllers: Wii Remote Plus for all
    Controls: 1. When yellow arrows appear around your character and 'STEP' is at 
    the top of the screen, swing the remote in the direction of the arrow when the 
    small circle at the start closes around it (it will go to the rhythm most of 
    the time if my description is confusing).
    2. When 'SPIRAL' appears at the top of the screen, balance the remote on the 
    pink line to avoid falling
    3. When 'JUMP' appears, swing the remote at the center of the glowing red 
    circles and spin it quickly while in midair to perform spin jumps.
    4. When 'SPIN' appears, spin the remote quickly to perform a spin
    5. When 'WAVE' appears, extend the remote to your side and raise and lower it 
    to collect the blue music notes/rings.
    6. When 'POSE AT 0' appears, get ready to spin for a while and then pose as 
    shown on the screen.
    This event again is very similar to normal figure skating, except this time the 
    competitors must rescue wisps from some eye monster (sorry guys, no ideas what 
    that thing is). If you are having trouble seeing the steps by looking at your 
    character then look at your opponents because they have the same moves (big 
    bulky dark ones like Bowser and DK are easier). Get into the music and perform 
    your moves to the beat.
    
    Roller Coaster Bobsleigh
    Controllers: Gamepad for first player, Wii Remote Plus for any others
    Controls: 1. G: Hold ZL and ZR to charge power, swing down at GO to start. 
    W: Hold B to charge power, swing down at GO to start.
    2. G: Rapidly tap ZL and ZR to run fast in boarding preparation. W: Rapidly 
    shake the remote up and down to run fast in boarding preparation.
    3. G/W: Swing up to board the bobsleigh at the red line
    4. G/W: Tilt the system/remote to turn
    5. G/W: In the sideways view portions of the race, tilt the system/remote 
    to match the angle of the bobsleigh to the angle of the ground.
    This is a simple driving race without an acceleration or brake button. You 
    want to collect as many rings as you can because they speed you up and make 
    the dash panels more powerful and long lasting. At a couple times during the 
    race, the camera will turn sideways making the game 2D and all you need to do 
    is perform successful landing boosts to get going faster (they work just like 
    snowboard landing boosts).  Watch out for ice monsters because they will 
    significantly slow you down and they are hard to see until its too late. 
    Other than that there's nothing to it
    
    Recommended Characters (Roller Bobsleigh): The stats are the same as in normal 
    bobsleigh, except in this event, speed is slightly more important than 
    sturdiness becuase there is no boost line here. Even though there is a change, 
    I still suggest you use power characters but with high speed as well as high 
    sturdiness.

    This is a much more fun version of hockey set in the famous Delfino Island. 
    The basics are the same as well as the controls, score more goals than your 
    opponent to win. All of the scoring techniques work in this as well so look 
    above under 'Ice Hockey' to see them. However, this is a dream event so it's 
    gotta be interresting, so there are 3 different courts and all of them have 
    them have their own unique obstacles. The only real addition to the event is 
    the inclusion of bonus goal oppurtunities, gold cages that when shot in give 
    you 2 points. Obviously you want to score them whenever available. I will go 
    in depth to the stages below...
    
    Main Street: This stage is shaped like a circle and is the simplest of the 
    three. The center of the area is higher than the rest of the court, so it is 
    harder to climb up but easier to come down. The other obstacle is the holes 
    in the walls. Shooting the puck into these holes will cause a pianta to become
    angry and throw the puck as a shell out the window. This shell puck is very 
    powerful, going through any player including the goalie with ease. So if you 
    get it, shoot accurately as soon as possible and keep it from your opponents 
    at all costs. The time when the bonus goal is activated is random, but look 
    in the windows when you see it say it is active on the screen. 
    
    Market Street: This stage is shaped like a normal hockey court except it is 
    longer and thinner with an extra add on at both goals. One feature is the 
    orange bouncer mushrooms. If you skate into these mushrooms, you will bounce 
    really high and be unreachable (but you can't move very far). If you shoot 
    from higher up, it makes it harder for the goalie to block it, thereby easier
    to score goals. Another obstacle is thatthere are piles of bananas being sold 
    under the tents. If you run into them, or the puck does, it will cause there 
    to be a bunch of banana peels on the ground that when stepped on make you 
    slip. Use these to cause a lot of havoc around the area you want. When you 
    hear church/clock bells ringing, there will be a bonus goal oppurtunity, so 
    dash to the center where the clock is and shoot without being interrupted to 
    get it.
    
    Coin Street. This is a very wide area with lots of blocks and elevated areas
     on the left and right ends of the court. Firstly, as I said, there are lots 
    of blocks blocking your progress so you need to manuever around them to get to 
    the opposition's goal. A way around that is to hit a P button (blue) on the 
    ground that turns blocks around it into coins like in the Mario games for a 
    limited time. If the coins are gotten, after the time runs out, the blocks 
    will be gone allowing you to go through the once-blocked area. If you collect 
    8 coins, you will cause a bonus goal oppurtunity on one ends of the court 
    so get over there and score. One startegy here might be to just go for bonus 
    goals with the coins, not even caring about the goal with the shy guy goalie.
    
    Recommended Characters (Snow Hockey): The game is mostly the same in terms of
    character picking in snow hockey over ice hockey. Speed is mostly even more 
    important than power (shooting) here because of the bonus goals, so use mostly 
    fast characters to get the job done.
    
    Hole in One Curling
    Controllers: Gamepad (solo) Gamepad and Wii Remote Plus alternating 
    (multiplayer)
    Controls: 1. (Solo and Multiplayer Co-op) Using the stylus, hold the glowing 
    stone and flick it on the touch screen of the gamepad to throw your stone
    2. (Solo) Tilt the gamepad left and right to turn. Lean forward to go a little 
    farther, Lean closer to you to slow down. (Multiplayer Co-op) Tilt the Wii 
    Remote Plus left and right to turn. Lean forward to go a little farther, lean 
    closer to you to slow down.
    3. (Solo and Multiplayer Co-op) Hold with the stylus on places with arrows on 
    the gamepad to freeze the obstacle making it easier to use it to your advantage
    4. (Solo and Multiplayer) In the fourth hole, when towers fall from above, 
    rapidly tap the parts to destroy them to get by safely)
    This is an interesting version of curling in a golf course setting in Green 
    Hill Zone where one person pushes the stone and another player rides it. First 
    I will discuss the controlling differences. If you are playing solo or 
    mulitplayer versus (not team versus), each player only uses the Gamepad. 
    If you are playing co-op mode, the pusher will use the gamepad while the rider
    uses the Wii Remote Plus. Now the goal of the pusher is to send the rider in 
    the right direction and most of the time with as much power as possible (unless
    you are close to the goal). The rider needs to lean in the different directions
    to make the stone go where he/she wants (it is not very easy to control 
    however). There are 4 different holes all with a couple different routes, I 
    will write my thoughts on how to complete each below. One interesting thing is
    that if there is a tie for first place after all of the holes are played, 
    there will be a tie break. The tie break is where you need to push your stone 
    to be as close to the line as possible (but if you push it off the ledge, you 
    can basically kiss the win good bye). What you want to do is flick it lightly, 
    too much power will cost you the win.
    
    Hole 1 Suggestions: I like the left route a lot better than the right because 
    the boost ramps are very hard to use and control. So my startegy is to push as 
    hard as you can to get at least down the first hill on the left (even better 
    is down both of the hills).  Assuming you got only down the first hill, either 
    push hard and try to hit the right side of the bumper closer to the hole to 
    hopefully score, or push lightly so that you have a direct shot at the goal 
    next turn. If you get down both hills, just go for the direct shot.
    
    Hole 2 Suggestions:Two routes again, and I prefer the right one (again the 
    boost ramps make you completely out of control and rarely help you. First 
    throw, you want to push hard and get onto the middle of the circle with ramps 
    circling around it.  Second throw you want to push to the dash panel at the 
    edge of the area (hold down on it to make sure it is pointing left so you 
    don't go the wrong way and waste a turn. If you did it well, you should be 
    able to get to the hole with your added momentum. If not, then just do a light
    push to get to the hole.
    
    Hole 3 Suggestions: This is a very simple hole down a downwards sloped hill 
    littered with many obstacles, mostly rocks and bumpers. Rocks will slow your 
    stone significantly so don't hit any of them. Bumpers will shoot your stone 
    in the direction depending on how you hit it. For the first throw, you want 
    to push towards the right into the gap between the obstacles and then carefully
    guide yourself down the hill avoiding all obstacles. Its pretty hard to slip 
    through the four bumpers at the end, but if you can get through you have a 
    very good chance of getting a hole-in-one.
    
    Hole 4 Suggestions: The most complicated and longest hole with a lot of 
    different paths to take. For the first throw, I recommend pushing at the very 
    edge of the mud but not touching, then tilting left to hit the dash panel and 
    propel yourself up the hill (just don't fall off into the lower area, that will
     only be bad). Along the way on the course, random towers will fall, so rapidly
     tap the parts of the tower you need destroyed to pass safely. Second throw try
    to push to a distant dash panel to the right (it would be best if you hit it 
    this turn). Upon hitting it, veer right, avoiding the big hill and staying 
    level and push as far as you can. The next throw might be complicated by some 
    bumpers, but should be an easy and direct shot at the goal
    
    Recommended Characters (Hole Curling): Pushing power and Riding ability are 
    both very important in this event. So, you want one power character (pushing 
    power) and one speed (riding ability). Remember you want to be strategic, the 
    first chosen character will be the pusher on holes 1 and 3, the second pusher 
    on 2 and 4. Choose the order depending on what you need more in each hole
    
    Snowball Scrimmage
    Controllers: Gamepad for first player, Wii Remote Plus (horizontal) for any 
    others
    Controllers: 1. G: Use left analog stick to move. W: Use arrow pad to move
    2. G: Press A to shoot snowballs. W: Press 1 to shoot snowballs
    3. G: Hold A to charge up bigger snowballs and release to shoot. W: Hold 
    3. G: Press B to lock on to a target. Press again to change targets. W: Press 
    2 to lock on to a target. Press again to change targets
    4. G: When in a cannon shooter, hold A to charge power for the jump, and let 
    go to jump. W: When in a cannon shooter, hold 2 to charge power for the jump, 
    and let go to jump.
    5. G/W: Run into the snowflake ball with no one on it to board it.
    The goal of this event is to battle in teams of 2 to bring the giant gold 
    snowflake ball to your goal by riding on it (the goal is behind where you 
    start and an icon will show if you are riding it).This is complicated by the 
    fact that you have snowball guns to pelt each other with, and each player has 
    a health bar which drops upon being hit. You are able to charge up your 
    snowball gun to shoot bigger snowballs that can stun an opponent if you hit 
    them. If you see an opponent who is glowing with a yellow or red light, hit 
    them quickly to stop his/her charging process. If you manage to drop an 
    opponent's health bar all the way, they will be out of the game for a couple 
    seconds and then transported back to their starting position. There aren't 
    many ways to score but here is the way I find more reliable. What you want to 
    do is either ride the ball and have your partner kill your opponents, or do 
    the reverse, have your partner ride the ball and you kill the opponents so 
    they can't interfere with your rider. This is difficult to counter, the best 
    way is to split up and try to take the rider down by shooting snowballs at 
    him/her so that the partner can only focus on one of you. You will also 
    notice there are cannons on the four cardinal ends of the arena. These cannons 
    will shoot you further depending on how much you charge but they leave you 
    wide open to attack so I do not recommend it. The only viable time to use it 
    is if you managed to shoot the rider off when they were nearly at the goal, 
    ride to the cannon and shoot yourself over the gate to severely slow down your 
    opponent. If you are winning by 2 points, a shortcut (the center gate) will 
    open for the losing team to get through much easier to the goal. This may be 
    a strategy if you are confident, let your opponent score twice so you get a 
    huge advantage and can win with enough skill.  Also, there are rainbow panels 
    on the ground that restore your health upon standing on them. I only recommend 
    using them after you are sent back to your starting positions after someone 
    scores; you don't want to waste time in the heat of the match healing.
    
    Recommended Characters (Sball Scrimmage): Speed and riding ability are at the 
    top most priority for this one. Strength it not very important. So you want to 
    have either a speed character with a lot of riding ability, or a skill player 
    with a lot of speed.
    
    Bullet Bill Sledge Race
    Controllers: Gamepad for first player, Wii Remote Plus for any others 
    (horizontal)
    Controls: G: Hold ZL and ZR to charge power during chargeup, swing down at 
    GO to start. W: Hold 1 to charge power during chargeup, swing down at GO to 
    start
    2. G/W: Tilt the system/controller left and right to turn
    3. G/W: Swing system/controller up at the tip of ramps to jump
    4. G: Press ZL and ZR to activate rocket boosts. W: Press 1 (?) to activate 
    rocket boosts
    The goal of this 2 player event is to steer your bullet bill sleigh through 
    a land full of sweets and chocolate to get the finish first. This is mostly 
    just a standard car race without an accelerator or brake. To gain an edge over 
    your opponents, you need to gather small blue orbs which will fill a boost 
    meter on the right hand side.When you get a rocket boost, it is usually best 
    to activate it immediately, but you want to stay out of the air for as long 
    as possible because it is wasting the boost. The boosts are most useful for 
    going through obstacles and chocolate to cut corners and find shortcuts. If 
    you steer into rings, they will propel you up and forward a bit so try to use
    them to your advantage. One noteable short cut is in the second lap after the 
    tunnel that spins you around, look right and aim for some rings that will lead 
    you to a secret ledge and will make that final section a lot easier.
    
    Recommended Characters (BB Sledge): You are going to want a fast character for 
    this one because speed is the most important stat here. Go with a speed 
    character with at least decent cornering (that's pretty important too) or a 
    skill character with a lot of speed.
    
    LEGENDS SHOWDOWN
    This is the adventure mode of the game, where the 20 competitors are working 
    together to get the giant trophy locked behind 6 gates with 6 keys. The mode is
    very simple, there are 5 areas (plus one final one) where 4 competitors are 
    working together to get one key. The last one is with all the characters able 
    to get the last key.  The 4 competitors must first fight shadow versions of 
    themselves in 3,4, or 5 events and then must take on a rival from the Mario 
    or Sonic Series. You get points for winning against the shadows, you get more 
    points if you beat them by a larger margin. After defeating a rival, a key 
    appears and you proceed to the next area. After clearing an area, you will get 
    a ranking based on the number of total points. In this section, I will say 
    the character that will get you the best results, and will add any extra info 
    when needed. If you need help with any of the events, look about under the 
    OLYMPIC EVENTS or DREAM EVENTS section.

    MEDLEY MANIA
    This mode is akin to the circuit mode in the original Beijing Olympic games. 
    Basically 4 people compete in 3 or 4 olympic/dream events consecutively 
    earning points for better performances (4 for 1st, 3 for 2nd, 2 for 3rd, 1 
    for 4th). However, if you are playing a 8 player event, you just need to be 
    the best of your 4 competitors (meaning you can take 2nd but get 1st place 
    if all did worse than you). There are 8 premade medleys, and you also have 
    the option to create a custom medley which can have up to 5 events in a row.

    ACTION AND ANSWER TOUR
    This is an interesting attraction hosted by Orbot and Cubot, where contestants 
    must complete specific goals in the Olympic events to get the correct 'answer'.
     Most of these have nothing to do with the normal events so thats what makes 
    it more fun.  You can play tours with 4, 6, or 8 'actions (events)'. You earn 
    points for getting a correct answer and you all compete to get the most points.
    Every couple rounds or so there is a 'random chance' which will cause some 
    random event to happen (I will list them below). All the controls in the events
    are the same in this, so look under the corresponding event to see them if 
    needed. All of the actions that I know of will be listed and explained below. 
    If there are any that I missed, email me them (address is in intro).
    
    Alpine Actions
    
    Thwomp and Answer (Competitive)-In this game there are 4 gates with thwomps at 
    each of them. Before the race starts, a thwomp will crash down and cause the 
    wii remote plus to rumble. Remember the rumble and pass through each gate 
    looking for an identical rumble and choose that gate at the goal line.
    
    Ski Jump Actions
    
    Midair Catch and Answer (Competitive)- In this game, there will be a picture of
    a character at the end of the ramp. Remember that character, and run into the 
    big balloons with the same character on them to get the most points. Whoever 
    gets the most point wins.
    
    Midair Formation and Answer (Competitive)- In this game, after you jump a bunch
    of koopas and buzzers will fly out into the air in front of you and begin to 
    form a shape.  The longer you are in the air, the closer to completion the 
    shape will be. Memorize the shape and choose that pattern after landing.
    
    Ski Cross Actions
    
    Route Recall and Answer (Competitive)- This is a short portion of the normal
    course with big gates divided into 2, one side is safe, the other has crates 
    which severely slow you down. The gates that are safe are shown at the 
    beginning. Memorize the order of the safe gates and ski through to the finish 
    line
    
    Scratch and Answer (Competitive)- This is a very simple event where you must 
    navigate along a simple track skiing over a scratch card of sorts on the snow. 
    While skiing on the scratch card, you want to find a shiny star pattern 
    underneath. Look at the gamepad after all have passed the scratch card and 
    look for which number is shiny starred and ski into that gate
    
    ? (I only played it once and didn't get to write it) (Cooperative)- This is 
    one of very few team events where 2 pairs of two compete against each other.  
    The goal of the teams is to collect the most correct color balloons (red or 
    blue depending on which team you are) in the short race. If you collect an 
    incorrect one, you give a point to the other team so refrain from doing that
    
    Biathlon Actions
    Quick Shot and Answer (Competitive)- This game is a quick one where a cannon 
    shoots a symbol from a far distance. You need to memorize the shape and 
    pattern on the shape and shoot the symbol first, choosing correctly to win.  
    You need to be extremely fast to do this one well
    
    Search and Answer (Competitive)- In this game, you need to ski through the 
    course looking from characters from the Mario and Sonic franchises. You need 
    to find five of them and get to the end first. When you reach the end, you 
    need to shoot the pictures of the characters in the correct order you found 
    them to get points and win
    
    Snowboard Parallel Giant Slalom Actions
    Speed Chase and Answer (Competitive)- In this very simple game, you are pitted
    against a rival and must race to the finish line where a bunch of different 
    snowflakes are.  At the beginning you are shown a snowflake, just memorize 
    the color, and snowboard into that snowflake before your opponent to win
    
    Snowboard Slopestyle Actions
    Try Your Luck and Answer (Competitive)- In this luck based game  you must 
    travel through the slopestyle course without ramps, and must ride on the 
    trick rails or grinding rails to run into barrels. Upon crashing into a barrel 
    you will get a random amount of rings. Hope to get the most rings to win
    
    Snowboard Cross Actions
    Pursue and Action (Competitive)- In this game, you are given the task to look 
    for a random character in the course. Once you find that character, remember 
    who he/sheis, and snowboard through the gate with his/her face on it.
    
    Short Track Actions
    Dice Throw and Answer (Competitive)- In this game you are skating around the 
    rink running into a giant die. The goal of running into the die is to 'roll' 
    it and see all the faces (sides) of the die. On each side of the die there is 
    a number and a color, you want to look for the number that appears twice. Use 
    the colors to help you, if you see a number that has two different colors 
    that's the one you want. Choose that one at the end to win
    
    Boo Hunt and Answer (Competitive)- In this game, the Gamepad displays the live 
    video broadcast of an invisible Boo. Based on this footage, you need to locate 
    where the Boo is and run into him first to win
    
    Eyeball and Answer (Competitive)- In this game,you need to locate a specific 
    point on the track at a certain distance (specified at the beginning of the 
    game). There will be a counter at the top right of the TV screen displaying 
    how far you have travelled but slowly blotting out some of the numbers, making 
    you need to guess where the specific point is. Whoever gets the closest wins
    
    Figure Skating Actions
    Roulette and Answer (Competitive)- In this luck based game, you need to perform
     a spin to get your roulette moving. The roulette has points on it that you 
    want to aim for. The faster you spin, the smaller the point panels are, but 
    the greater they are worth so spin depending on how confident you are. Press 
    A to slowly stop spinning and hope your cursor lands on the point value you 
    want.
    
    Copycat and Answer (Competitive)- In this game, you will first watch a 
    performance of only steps performed by an AI. You want to memorize the general 
    direction of the steps (for example, if the arrow goes up, swinging down or up 
    will work) and perform that after the AI's performances. Or you could just 
    randomly swing the remote hoping you get the right direction...
    
    Bobsleigh Actions
    Bullet Bill Shuffle and Answer (Competitive)- In this game, you will be racing 
    through the bobsleigh course without the boosts, following a bullet bill. More 
    bullet bills will fly with you as the race goes on, keeping your eye on the 
    original bullet bill that was in the entire race and choose that bullet bill 
    at the finish line.
    
    Ice Hockey Actions
    Goal Shoot and Answer (Competitive)- In this stupid game, you compete in 
    hockey to answer the question provided in the beginning of the match (they 
    are very simple questions: who is in first place, who is player one etc). You 
    need to get the puck and shoot into the goal with the character's face on it 
    to win.
    
    Curling Actions
    Takeout and Answer (Competitive)- In this game, the house is filled with a 
    lot of stones, big and small. Your goal is to knock as many out as you can 
    (smaller are worth more points). There's a lot of luck, but try to hit the 
    big ones with a lot of force so they will run into the smaller ones and 
    hopefully knock them out
    
    Fan Blower and Answer (Cooperative)- In this game, two teams of two compete 
    to find the hidden picture in the house. The picture is hidden by a thick 
    layer of smoke that can't be seen through unless you use fans that are 
    conveniently located on top of your stones. With some luck, you want your 
    stones to cover as much ground as possible so you can catch a glimpse of the 
    mystery picture. The less stones you use, the more points you get.
    
    Random Events
    These happen every couple rounds where a random event ensues. Here they are:
    
    Recovery Chance- This is a rare one, where a x2 panel is given to the player 
    in last place, making all the points received in the next turn multiplied by 
    2 to help give him/her a boost.
    
    Steal Chance- This event allows the winner to steal 10 points from any opponent
    he/she chooses. Use this to take down your opponents while helping yourself to
    win
    
    Lucky Chance- This is a luck event where there are 4 cards with certain numbers
    of points on them. All players choose one and get the number of points on it.
    
    Bonus Point Chance- The winner of the previous event is given the ability to
    hit a button giving him/her extra points (for a total of 11-17 points)
    
    Selection Chance- This event enables the competitors to vote on an event that 
    will be played next round. The event chosen is by majority, if there is no 
    majority, it will be chosen randomly.
    
    M&S TV
    This is the TV set within the game where you can find many channels with lots 
    of fun stuff. This is accessed by using the Gamepad in the main menu or event 
    selection screen and is only shown on the Gamepad. I'll go in depth to the 
    channels and explain them below.
    
    Channel 1: Winter Roundup
    Here is the news channel area of the game. Here, Toad presents you the log of 
    new records achieved and pictures if you enable photo trade with friends 
    (explained under MIIVERSE). Not much else here, one of the lame channels
    
    Channel 2: Road to Victory
    This is a very interesting channel dedicated to your improvement in each event.
    When you choose an event, it will shown a nice line graph showing how much you 
    have improved (or not improved). Below it shows some event specific records and
    how much you much you have improved since your first try. This one is 
    definitely worth checking every now and then 
    
    Channel 3: Rankings at a Glance
    This is the Nintendo Wifi records, showing the top record in each event in 
    comparison to yours. You are also able to download the best run by the top 
    record, allowing you to see how they got their record (but I don't know where 
    you access these, help would be appreciated!). 
    
    Channel 4: Highlights
    Here is what you've been waiting for, the challenges channel. In this channel,
    special challenges are hidden, upon completing them you will get costumes, 
    music or gear.  You are able to use challenge hint points (received by playing
    online matches or completing other special challenges) to show words hidden

    Channel 5: Daily Friend Report
    This channel compares your activity in the game to your friends. It is kinda 
    useless but may be of some interest to you if you have a lot of friends who 
    play this game.
    
    ONLINE/MIIVERSE
    Online
    New to this game is an online mode where you can actually compete against 
    people from around the globe. As great as this is, you can only play 4 
    events in online so get good at these. They are Ski Cross, Snowboard Cross, 
    Short Track 1000m, and Winter Sports Champion Race. In online mode, you 
    choose one of the four events, and then can choose to play with any friends 
    you have, or around the world. Every time you win, you will get strength points
    which when gotten in large amounts, give you special titles. Also, every time 
    you compete online, you receive 10 challenge points which you can use to take 
    away the ????s in front of vital words in the special challenge channel if you
    do not want to use the list above.Every week, a new count starts where all the
    countries compete for the top place in each event. To help your country, you 
    need to play events over and over getting as many strength points and 1st 
    places as you can.
    
    Miiverse
    Also new to this game is the inclusion of Miiverse. After getting a new record
     in any event during single event mode, Omochao will come and ask you for an 
    interview.  You are then prompted to write any advice or whatever you want to 
    post to Miiverse about this event. These messages will then be shown on the 
    gamepad when playing a game that does not use the gamepad (such as Figure 
    Skating). After the Miiverse section, he will then ask you to take a picture 
    which you are forced to do. You can allow your friends to see them if you hit
    yes when it says 'Trade with Friends?'
    
    RECORDS
    As always, I will write down my records for all the events,except this time I 
    can write down the events that don't have a record system due to the 
    usefullness of Channel 
    2: Road to Victory. If you have beaten my records send them to me via email
