The game channel is actually pretty easy to find with the plus minus
method. Wii sports is easy to recognize as it has a sort of piano
theme with ocean waves in the background. Then, all you have to do is
press the start game button, which makes a ding of a g above middle c,
sort of like the old windows ding.
Once you're in the game itself, just hit a and b together, then you
can use the d pad for most functions. The only function that seems to
be inaccessible via d pad is the change me button from within a game,
so if you want to change miis, you have to quit and restart, but
that's really not such a hastle.
Some other wii games aren't so accessible. Wii play, for example, is
pretty much totally inaccessible, but both sports games have given me
quite a bit of entertainment.\\Signed:
