It would have been more popular if it wasn't exclusive to Nintendope console.

I've played the others and I have really good memories of the earlier ones in college, but I'm afraid this one will end up running my life. It was one thing in college, not so easy when I have a job.

Sent you a request. Is your island's natural fruit something other than cherries? I'm looking to stock up on the others!


Also, I'm a fishing god in this game. Bow down to me.

Sadly not, it's cherries. I do have some oranges planted but I don't know how long it takes to grow.

Update Time:


  • I'm one upgrade away from having my house completely paid off with all rooms available. Gotta get over 1,000,00 Bells to have that happen, though.
  • I'm not time traveling. I've done that in past game, but I"m trying to play this one "the right way".
  • Been catching rare fish like a madman. Managed to snap a stringfish and an oarfish in the last week.
  • Bunny Day seems fun, but I'm already stressing about having to collect all of the Easter eggs
  • I love that you can put photos into the game via pattern editors online
  • Getting K.K. Slider to come to my island has been a chore. How many damn things do I need to do?
  • Isabelle is still a cutie


How's all of you and your islands? Any of you reach the credits yet? Who's time traveling and who's not? Anyone want to come visit? I'll hook you up with cool shit.

My AC house is completely paid off.


Now what? Rip my hair out in frustration while trying to catch every single bug and fish in this game?

I still work all the time, so I don't play enough to come close to paying off my home, but I did manage a five-star island by tossing mannequins all over in hopes of manipulation rock spawns, and I recently got Lucky to join my island. Sadly, he took Ken's home. Of my three chickens, the game removed the two I like and left me with Benedict. Fucking Animal Cro... but on the plus side, Puddles finally decided to leave. I don't really like the frogs, but I never shunned her. I don't do anything to make my villagers want to leave. I don't work on Wednesday, so maybe I should save up Nook miles and go villager shopping on the never-rare island trips.


Congratulations on paying off the loan, by the way. I think Nook lets you customize your home for free now.

My husband got me New Horizons for an early birthday present. I'm still getting everything set up, but wouldn't mind playing with you guys. How does travel work in this game?

You have to add people via friend codes (Mine is in my first post in this thread if you want to add me) and then visit the airport at the south end of your island after your first day on the island. You can then "open your gates" or tell the dodo bird that you want to fly somewhere. Assuming that someone on your friend's list has their gates open, you can visit them! I'd love to host you if you'd come visit.


Also, guys I finally caught a Ranchu Goldfish today. I've literally been trying to catch one of those fat fucks since the game first launched back in March. I'm so stoked that my museum finally has one.

I can see where this is a major time sink. If I didn't work I'd probably be further along, but I'm building my first set of villager houses now and stopping in for at least 15 minutes or so every day. I like the routine of it: chat with animals, dig up fossils, hit rocks, water flowers, sell stuff. I'll catch bugs and fish when I have more time to play.


Very proud of myself for catching wasps on my first attempt.

Still looking for one of those damn things. Caught a whale shark today though.


Also, once I get off my lazy ass and get all the photos moved over, I need to go through the photos of the surprise birthday party Sylvia threw me on Monday.


I ate all the cupcakes and panicked when I was suddenly smashing rocks into smithereens later.


Didn't spend too much time on the game daily since I have other games and stuff to juggle, so haven't gotten too far in it. I did complete the Fossil Exhibit, at least I did that much. The things I'm really after in this game is the annoying task of getting the villagers I want and getting the furniture I want for my home to make it looks like some sort of evil lair, because why not?


Judy was a happy accident as she was my 7th villager by pure luck and I wasn't even searching for her at the time, but now she's one of my favorites. However, as the game keeps track of what villager types you have on the island it uses that to determine the rate of which types end up in the campsite. So whatever types you don't have on the island will have a rate boost. Since one of the villagers I want is Ankha and both her and Judy are Snooty types, that's going to make getting her more difficult.


I've heard some players are using Nook Mile Tickets as currency to trade wanted villagers, but I'm not going to do that. The premise of the game is creating a self-reliant community on a deserted island, so I feel it's best that the player is self-reliant as well.
