    So what is the star conversion for games
    like 250 stars for a game?

    Do you guys at least get post-play & intend-to-buy surveys for the extra 10 or 20 coins

    Yes, most games equate to 250 stars. DS consoles are twice that, 3DSes give 750 and the Wii and Wii U are worth 1000 stars. Some games yield 200, though I'm not sure why that is.

    There are sometimes post-play surveys, but I've never encountered the latter.

    Got the posters a couple nights ago. I like the Wind Waker poster a lot. Glad it's not foiled in gold.

    Meanwhile, we got a Year of Luigi coin, and a pack of Nintendo Cards like the sort they started out making in the first place... the latter being 3000 points which is a heck of a lot (registering a game which can sell for $60 here for 3ds is 200 points). And the Luigi coin already ran out. :V

    I got my Platinum posters last night. I was starting to regret choosing them over the Majora's Mask CD, but now that I have them, I'm really glad I went with the posters. They look really great! Much better than the playing cards I chose last year.

    Well, after a very long wait, and a late delivery, I finally received my Majora's Mask CD. The jewelcase got damaged during shipping, I was a bit put off by that, but at least the CDs themselves were intact. I listened to the tracks quickly, quite enjoyed it.

    3DS Game Card Cases back up on Club Nintendo US. This time in Zelda and Animal Crossing varieties. 400 coins each. Get it now if you want it because those cases go sold out quickly.

    You're getting streetpasses at a farmer's market. That's proof enough.

    Really wish they'd have done Pokemon 3DS card cases instead of Zelda or Animal Crossing. I mean, there are four Zelda games on the 3DS/DS. Seven if you count Rosy Rupeeland, its Japan only sequel and Tingle's Balloon fight. Two Animal Crossing games between the systems as well.

    Meanwhile there are 11 main series Pokemon games, and that's not even counting spinoffs like Pokemon Dash, the Mystery Dungeon games (there are five of those, by the way), the Ranger games, Conquest, Rumble Blast, etc. You can fill up a card case with Pokemon games alone, whereas all the Zelda and Animal Crossing games barely even fill up half of one together.

    Either way, I bought three. Two Zelda and one Animal Crossing. I have enough coins for a fourth if I really wanted it, but I've got enough cases for all the games I currently own plus the games within the next year I plan on getting, so I'm holding off on that last one. Also, no longer pissed at Nintendo for taking the Luigi's Mansion figure down the very day my post play surveys came in that would've allowed me to buy the damn thing. I probably would've only gotten two of these card cases even though I do really need all three if I hadn't registered the games already.

    I don't think they've ever done Pokemon-themed rewards, probably since its technically "GameFreak" specifically (though I guess any merchandise would be under TPCi?) and not nintendo's specific first party stuff

    I'll probably hang onto my coins for another month. None of the rewards are that appealing to me this month.

    Nintendo holds the copyright for Pokemon. Gamefreak only holds the copyright for the games.

    If Gamefreak left Nintendo for whatever reason, they could use any of the Pokemon created previously, but they just couldn't rerelease any of the games, at least not exactly as they were originally released, without Gamefreak's permission.

    A new poster set consisting of 2 posters for Animal Crossing: New Leaf is on the US site. I'm a huge fan of the posters, but I'm short 150 coins. I need to start saving more.

    weren't they like 3 posters for 400 coins like a few months ago?

    i'm guessing they raised prices so they dont immediately sell out any time they put up a reward that's worth anything

    Has anyone who is from Europe noticed how outdated the stars catalog is? I mean, the majority of items you can get have been there since 2008 (there is still Wii points; no balance cards for Wii U/3DS). The US site gets cheap VC offers too, does anyone know why it is like this?

    Because NoA and NoE are two completely separate entities.

    Hopefully tomorrow's games on Club Nintendo include Mario 3. I've been looking to get that and since it isn't available on the eShop in the US yet, it would be great if CN offers it soon. Still can't believe it hasn't been released on the eShop yet. I think Europe, Japan & Australia have had the game since December.

    Why would they have a game that isn't out yet
    or, alternatively, a game that just came out

    They could put up the Wii version, I guess, but I don't think that's what you're asking for

    Actually, I was talking about the Wii Version. Getting the Wii Version and then only having to pay a dollar to get the Wii U version is better than paying $5 or $6.
