My wife has been playing Viva Pinata like crazy...and created her game under her own profile on the 360. But my profile is the one associated with XBL Gold account...

so, is there any way for my wife to do the online stuff in her garden? Is it possible to have two seperate gamertags on one Gold account on the same console...it would seem like a big ripoff to have to buy another account?

And also, everyone talks about leaderboards for the diferent pinatas...where are these...I can'f find them! And the manual dosent say anything about it!

My wife loves to play VP also, I just have her create a Guest Account and it seems to work just the same.

Not sure about the online portion with two accounts.
I had to just create a seperate garden for my son, so he wouldnt beat up all my Pinata's.

The leaderboard stuff is located in the journal.

What's a guest account? And since she already is level 30 and has a big garden going...would that require a new profile and starting all over for her?

Why cant she just sign on with your account and play online?
Unless she wants her own achievements I guess.

She will not be able to do any online stuff unless you get her a gold membership too. You can have more than one garden on the same tag.

To play Viva Pinata online, all you need is an Xbox Live Silver account. These are free and can be created at any time.

Go make her a silver account, link it to her VP profile and you're good to go. Add me to her friend's list and we'll trade some Pinatas as well. I'm getting veeerrrry close to 100%-

I just played the demo. it is an interesting game.

Even after playing for 45 minutes it almost got overwhelming. I think there was 7 or 8 pinatas species running around, seeds to plant and water, mating, fights breaking out... how do you guys manage all of that?

When I play, I have a goal in mind (getting a achievement, master romancer, etc). I play towards that goal and basically let everything else just do it's thing.

What is the online stuff? Can you visit other player's gardens over Live and help them tend their garden? I was thinking of picking this game up after playing the demo. I think my roommate might enjoy playing it.

a lot of people play the game trying to get 20 different pinata to come to the garden, jumping around, doing this and that.

i think it's important to focus on about 3 species of pinata at a time.

No trees were harmed forming this post, though many electrons were inconvenienced.
