How to… Get rich quick! Step by step

Howdy y’all!! 😛 You need some extra money, in Animal Crossing? Don’t worry! I’ll show you a few very easy methods to win some extra bells! You’ll be rich in no time!!

Disclaimer: These methods are simply some ways to gain money, no codes or cheats are needed. Even with these methods, bells are hard to gain in Animal Crossing, patience is key, and you won’t get rich within the first time you use these 😛

First method: Fleas in the market? IMG_4391[1]

You are going to need…

  1. A net and/or a fishing rod
  2. Empty pockets
  3. And the flea market coming up!! Unless you want to time-travel. In Wild World the flea market occurs the 1st Saturday of every month except for January. (1st Saturday of February, March, April…)

What to do…

  1. Start catching bugs and fishes!!
  2. When your pockets are full of catches, head over to your house and empty the main room (the more space there is, the better)
  3. Place all your bugs/fishes in the room until its full capacity.
  4. Time travel or wait until it’s the Flea Market in your town
  5. Wait inside your house until a “customer” (neighbor) comes in
  6. Once they ask you about a fish or bug, negotiate with them the best price! If they’re interested, they could buy the fish or bug for thousands of bells!!

Second method: You’ve got mail!!

You are going to need…

  1. Paper to write letters (purchase at Nook’s store)
  2. 100 bells or some cheap item.

What to do…

  1. Address a letter to a neighbor in your town, doesn’t matter who.IMG_4443[1]
  2. Write one sentence in your game’s language (English, Spanish, French…) If you’re game’s in English you can take for example what I wrote in the image. 🙂
  3. Write up to four sentences in your game’s language (English, Spanish…) make sure they are real words, the longer the letter, usually, the more value the gift you get in return has. *
  4. Adjust to the letter a present (just drag and let go of the object on top of the letter) it can be a fruit, 100 bells…
  5. Go to the town hall and send it!!
  6. Wait for a reply by the neighbor, the reply will include some item: either an object from their house, a piece of foreign fruit (sell it for 500 bells!) or a random clothing piece.
  7. Sell the item to Tom Nook, and hopefully you’ll have gained some bells!!

* Depending on how long the letter is you’ll get different stuff in return. One sentence will get you fruit or a piece of clothing, two lines will get you a piece of furniture and three or four will either get you furniture, wallpaper or carpet 🙂

The key to this method is getting in return something of more value than the present you sent to them, this way you’ll gain bells when you sell it!!

Third method: ‘Sup bro, you broke?

Okay… excuse that really pathetic name 😆

You are going to need…

  1. Nothing!! 😀 This is the easiest method, but also the less efficient

What to do…

  1. Look around your town, bells and items can be hidden around these places:
      1. Town hall recycling bin
      2. Trees: shake them, but watch out for bees! Bags of 100 bells will fall down, fruits and even furniture!
      3. Underground: you’ll need a shovel to dig in certain spots, you can easily find gyroids and fossils, which sell for quite a lot of bells!!
      4. Rocks: with a shovel, hit a rock! Each day one rock in your town contains thousands of bells in it! Just be quick!!

How to… Catch Tarantulas and Scorpions: Step by step

Hello sweet pumpkins 😛 How’s summer going? Catching plenty of bugs, remember in August 42 of the 56 bugs in Animal Crossing Wild World are available to catch, including Tarantulas and Scorpions.

Since they’re the 2 hardest bugs to catch for most people, I decided to do a little step by step tutorial that will both help me and you to catch these nasty little bugs!

So let’s start by getting to know better these little (or big) bugs

 the little images of the bugs (only) are from strategywiki.org

Okay, so know that we know when and where to catch them, the bells they put in our pockets (or the occupation in our museum) we can try to catch them. Pay attention and listen to me when I say do NOT hold a net, if you do and the Scorpion or Tarantula sees you it will run to attack you!

Notes: These bugs will not appear when it’s raining/snowing or when the gate is open.

  1. WITHOUT holding a net I’d recommend  just plugging  in some headphones to our nintendo and start listening to our game, naturally, not inside any building, just outside. Meanwhile you can read something, write, play games without a lot of noise…
  2. Whenever you hear a bug sound pickup your nintendo and check if you see a Tarantula or a Scorpion, if you don’t but you still hear the noise, walk around very slowly looking for the bug, also keep your eyes open for other bugs that might have mistaken you with their sound. Remember, do NOT hold a net!!!
  3. If you have spotted your catch of the day, it’s time to spot their back. If you see a Scorpion, it’s easy, just look for its tail. And if you see a Tarantula it gets a little more complicated; try advancing slowly towards it (not holding a net) until it moves a bit, be careful not to scare it too much or it might end up running in the ocean/river. The opposite direction that it moved will be its back.
  4. Now, sneak up upon them from behind (where they can’t see you) and when you’re 100% sure they can’t see you bring out your net, advance just the right distance and…
  5. WAP! Swing your net and hope for the best!

Did you catch it? Did it run away, or did you run away? Even worst, did it sting you? Leave a response in the comments below! I will try to add pictures to this tutorial soon, whenever I spot one 🙂

If you didn’t catch it, don’t worry, there will be other times! So keep your heads up and hope for more, oh! and after you donate both bugs in the museum a surprise is waiting for you…

You can also try other methods showed in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_clvBgI2mic   I explained the easiest way that I know, but maybe you find easier one of the methods from this video. 😉

I really hope this helps you guys, the greatest of luck and… Happy Summer!!!
