Not to be confused with Pair Minigames.

The Pair Games category in Wii Party consists of three game modes that can be played by two players: Friend Connection, Balance Boat and Match-Up. Friend Connection requires two people while the others need one person to play, with them playing with a CPU by default.

Friend Connection
