I highly recommend a Wiimote if you have one lying around. Super easy setup on Linux (couldn’t figure it out for the life of me on Windows, but that probably has more to do with me than the OS), the gyroscope works, vibration works, and overall it’s quite a lot of fun. I think I got a maximum of four simultaneously connected.

I'm not sure about Linux, but on OS X there was a fantastic utility you could use to do really advanced stuff (AppleScript / Automator integration, for two), but the really cool thing was that you could ise up to eight WiiMotes at once- the last four were the same indicators, but the lights were inverted.

Not sure if you can do it with the current set of utilities for Linux, but the WiiMotes themselves support going up to at least eight.
