You need one wiimote per player. Nunchuck is a second part that allows more complex games to work and for certain games is how an additional person plays the game.

1 person needs 1 Wii Remote and 1 Nunchuk.

2 people need 2 Wii Remotes and 2 Nunchuks.

A Wii Remote plus a Nunchuk is ONE controller for ONE person, using two hands.

This is needed for the Wii Remote, one for each player.

Some games do not need any Nunchuks, but many need them. Wii Sports (the game that comes with the Wii System) needs them for the Boxing event. For the other parts of Wii Sports, this is not used.

I have not seen a game that uses the Wii Remote for one player and only the Nunchuk for the second player. Each player needs the Wii Remote, and there should be a Nunchuk for each Wii Remote.

There are some games where players take turns. For some of these, you can share the Wii Remote with Nunchuk by passing both of them to the next player.

Bottom line is this: the system comes with only one Wii remote. Therefore, if you plan to have two people playing against each other, your best bet is to buy an additional Wii remote and two Nunchucks.

Anyone else unable to purchase more than one nunchuk through Amazon? I was able to buy the 2 extra remotes I needed, but it won't let me buy more than one nunchuk! Even if I try to make a separate order. Argh!

Yep, I had the same thing happen. Can't find any details about this policy anywhere (other than the 3-consoles-per-household rule), so I don't know how long I'll be prevented from buying a second one here (a week, a month, forever?).... a nuisance that will likely send me to the local B&M electronics store.

That's incorrect. The system comes with 1 remote and 1 nunchuck. So the best bet is just to buy an additional one of each.
Nintendo's website shows clearly what ships with the Wii system:

You need to learn a little respect for your grandmother!!!!!!! She (I assume) bought you this VERY expensive system for your enjoyment and that is how you talk about her!!??? You need some manners!!!!!! (and no, I am not a grandmother - I'm 28).

Thanks for saying that. Grandmother's are priceless. I wonder how old Philip Thompson is? Hopefully, around 7 years? Ya think? Well I appreciate all of this info, because I'm looking at buying a system, and don't know a thing about them.

It's the grandmother posting herself, using (probably) Grandpa's account. No one's dissing Grandma!

Wow. You are rude.

Appreciate your elders man. most of us don't even have our parents anymore due to loss. at least yours are still around to show you love and to see your happiness. try appreciating what they do for you a little more. pretty insane you'd talk about family that does things for you and loves you like that. grow up and be thankful. one nunchuck per wii remote is needed. both can be bought seperately. one nunchuck and wii remote per boxed wii console. hope this helps.

All, I think stupid grandmother is she, herself, posting. At least that is how I understand it as I read her post. Just like when someone says, "Stupid me, I can't figure out..."

It's nice that people are sticking up for a grandmother, but the post is From the grandmother. She is self-deprecatingly apologizing for asking a question that others might think is stupid. (It wasn't a stupid question and thank you, grandmother, for asking it. I wanted the same information.)

If it had been young man/boy posting, correcting him a little more gently and compassionately would have been less humiliating for him and therefore better role modeling. Humiliating youngsters to make a point is counterproductive.

Some games (e.g. Raving Rabbids TV Party) allow passing/sharing the wii remote.
