Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Or, failing that, a fairly large image of the rewards/coins needed is behind the spoiler tag:
You get points for registering your games and filling out surveys. The game and watch collection is the best prize.
# Earn Coins for registering Nintendo products and completing surveys
# Redeem Coins for limited edition Rewards
# Earn a set amount of Coins each year to gain Gold and Platinum status
# Create a Family Account and invite members of your family to join
# Register your newly purchased Wii console or Nintendo DS on Club Nintendo and extend your warranty
I think you might get something for Gold or Platinum status.
Registering a Wii game nets you 50 coins, a DS game gets you 30 coins, and Virtual Console/WiiWare games get you 10 coins. You can also earn 10 coins for saying you plan to buy a game and following through with the purchase, 10 coints for taking a survey about a registered game, and another 10 coins for a "Post Play" survey 4-6 weeks after that. Oh, and the Gold and Platinum statuses from the Japanese Club Nintendo are in the US version too. Anyone who earns 600 coins in a Club Nintendo year (July 1 - June 30) gets Platinum status and a free gift, while 300 coins gets you Gold status and a free gift (probably not as good as the Platinum gift, though).
If any of this needs to be corrected, please, let me know.
