Mario Kart DS Friend Codes

Well, got my copy in, just opened it up, and am playing with the configuration. I was thinking of setting up a thread for friend codes, and trash talk of course. :D

What a throwback to the 80s this whole friend code thing is.

Except in the 80s you’d need to enter all those numbers for one code.

Can anyone scan the friend code wheel and post it?

Has anyone actually been able to get a multiplayer game going through the Internet? I’ve tried all the conditions and it just sits there looking for opponents. Too early for many people to have the game?

We got this last night and had the same experience - no Internet games to be had. :/

there seem to be some problems

I did manage to get one game going last night by just setting the thing down for a few minutes and letting it scan for opponents. Once it started, it worked really well. Much more fun than just doing the single player races. I came in 4th out of 4 on the first 3 races, then pulled a daring comeback to place 1st in the 4th. Good stuff.

Just picked this one up. Played a quick online match against some random people. Fun stuff. Here’s my friend code:

We got a bunch of multiplayer games going this evening and it was a big success. The DS got handed around all evening.

I’ve never played any of these Kart games before, but I couldn’t resist the idea of handheld global gaming. Just… wow. Works like a charm.

Yeah, pretty cool. My boys were really into the idea of beating the console junkies from Japan.

My main problem is that 90% of the players online so far either use Mario or Luigi. Are those two basically the best overall for the variety of tracks you might race online? I’ve been completely destroyed anytime I’ve tried to use Bowser or Wario, and the best I can manage with Dry Bones or Yoshi is an overall 2nd place finish.

Yeah, things seemed to be better last night. Lots of fun. I keep coming in dead last overall, though. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. I guess part of it is that I just can’t get the hang of the drift. Every time I try to do it I slow way down and just do quick, sharp turns instead of the gradual slide.

Also, zabuni, you should edit the original post to include all the friends codes posted so far for easy reference.

I’ll have to add your codes at some point, I’ve been slammed at work this week and haven’t had a chance to do much of anything lately. :/

Nice races tonight, Jafd. Sorry I had to quit after 2 matches, but by the end there I was ready to crash for the night. I do love using Waluigi, though, he’s got some decent stats.
