If you have a Wii Console, but cannot afford to purchase many games, consider downloading games for free. Some websites offer Wiiware games free of charge, which could save you from purchasing costly games. You will need to register with one of these websites to get the free games. You also need an SD card to transfer the games onto your Wii console.

Register with TURDinc Downloads (see Resources). Once registered, you have access to the Nintendo Wiiware area.

Search for the games you want to download. Click “Save” and install the game onto your desktop.


Insert your SD card into your computer. If your computer is old, it may not have a SD card slot. If your computer does not have an SD card slot, use a USB cable to connect your computer to your Wii console.


Click “Start” and “Computer.” Double-click on the SD card or the Wii icon.


Drag and drop the Wiiware game into your SD card or Wii console. You should now be able to play the game on your Wii console.


Things You'll Need

  • SD card
  • USB cable (optional)
  • Wii console
