I have it :) I love the game, think it's great.

I need to get one of those Wi-Fi adaptors so I can use it over the net at home.

Livewire, its an odd game. One that you wont play for hours on end each day, rather 30mins or so each day for quite awhile. Lots of collecting items, trading them, upgrading houses, communicating with other townsfolk and visiting other ppl via wifi.

Jacana yeah you should get one, then we can come visit each others villages :)

Geting MarioKart soon as well. Heard thats heaps of fun.

Me! I'll be picking up a wi-fi for my home network soon too.
It's a very fun game, nicely paced too so that you never play it for too long each day.

In it's very basic form, Animal Crossing is a collection "game". You get to swap items with the townspeople, collect items to put in the museum, shop, get special event items, etc, etc. You get to help develop the town by planting flowers and trees. You collect different types of fruits (each town only starts with 1 type of fruit) and plant those to get a range of fruits. Write letters and swap gifts with the other townspeople.

If you wanted to you could play it for hours just collecting all teh fruit to sell, fishing, collecting bugs - but the game really aimed at gamers with limited time. Besides, if you pland the game for hours on end I am sure you would find yourself really bored of the game in just a few days.

Makk - MarioKart sooooo impressed me. A friend brought the game over and I had a ball watching the three guys play. It was great to see the game take such full use of the WiFi capabilities. You only need the 1 game and you can have up to 8 players play - they can just download the maps as you play along. And I'll make sure to keep in touch with my friend code once I get the WiFi adaptor! I really love the idea of seeing other "Real" people run around in the town!

My town only has oranges... this sucks because I don't like oranges much. What fruit does everyone have?

I started off with peaches. However, my mother was kind and sent me an apple! Now I have a small apple orchard going :)

Ok :) Animal Crossing Blog -

I went to visit Kez today. That was very cool. I made sure to fill my pockets with new fruit to bring to the new land with me. I got to leave a message on his message board, meet up with his townspeople, write letters, and get new fruits for my town. After all of that Kez came over to my town, and brought with him a load of his "common" fruit to sell at 500 each. Along with him, it seems that some of his towns star map have come across to my town. I also got a letter from one of his townspeople. And I am now have oranges to add to my fruit list.

All in all it was great, the chat is somewhat clunky, and very limited to number of characters, but overall this is very much how Animal Crossing should be played :) I think this may have been the first virtual Sumea meet-up. If we get a few more people with AC, I think we should try and organise a virtual Sumea meet-up once a month!

As for other things, tip swapping:
You can get red turnips (radishes) from Joan on Sundays. You plant them and water them for a week then dig them up. Mine sold for 14,000.
Roll up two of the snowballs you see laying around into a big and small snowball, put them close to each other, and you get a snowman. The snowman talks to you, and will send you a letter with a special snowman series item.

My fruit check: Apples, Oranges, Peaches, and Coconuts (they wash up on the beach).

hah cool!
Yeah, I was thinking that we should do a meetup. Though I think the limit is 4 ppl at the one time.
Chat is a little clunky isnt and I have been disconnected a few times as well :(
Thats alot of fruit there Jacana :) I think you can get pears as well. Heh, didnt know that about the snowman.
Just paid off my second mortage, wohoo! Cant wait to see what hte new house upgrade will look like.

Not sure when you are normally on Makk, but I thought I might leave my DS on for a while and see what happens. I have added you on to my IM list :) Maybe if you are around tonight you may want to drop by. Warning - Kezz may well strip my town of all peaches before then. It feels like a drug run, or something. Being a fruit mule!
