The keyboard will act as the Family Trainer mat. This is how it is laid out on a Qwerty keyboard:






Press START to bring up the menu.
There are two different ways to play:
        - Practice Menu: Choose a single game to practice                 
        - Solo Battle: Up to 4 players compete for the best score


Use SELECT to choose a mode, then press START to begin.



Here you can choose any one of the eight main games to play as a single round. As this is a practice stage you can have as many attempts as you need to clear a game within the time limit.

Use the SELECT button to scroll through the list of games, then press START to choose one.
Games: Bite the Bun, Sumo Rings, Home Run, High Rollers, Grid Iron, Tug of War, Wipe Out, and Final Fall.





In this mode you play through as many of the games as you choose to before reaching the Show Down.

Before beginning, enter the number of players. Use the arrow keys to highlight the number and press the A Button (/) to confirm. You can then enter your name, again using the arrow keys and the A Button (/) to enter each character, or skip this and press START to begin.



The quicker you clear a game the more points you will win. If you fail a game three times, or run out of time, you'll lose and have to move onto another challenge. The better you do in the games, and the more points you earn, the more energy you'll have in the Show Down.
In multiplayer mode each player takes turns in choosing and playing a game.

Use the SELECT button to scroll through the list of games, then press START to choose one. But note; once you scroll past a game you cannot go back to it, so you'll miss the chance to take part in that challenge.
At the end of the list of games is the Show Down. When you scroll to this Takeshi will give you no choice but to enter the Show Down by pressing START.





To quit a game at any time just press SELECT.
