ACNH Challenge 15 – Name Your Island!

To keep myself entertained while waiting for the release of Animal Crossing New Horizons, I created a 20 day challenge! I’d love it if you played along using #ACNHChallenge. You can participate in as many or few as you’d like – and you can share on any day (you don’t have to go in order).

I’ll post the full list of challenges on March 20th so you can play along!

#ACNHChallenge 15 – Name Your Island!

We are SO CLOSE to release! Have you picked your island name yet? I held a vote to help me choose. I ended up picking Coney Island because it’s the most on-brand for me, but it was tough to choose between these four.

What’s your island name going to be?

#ACNHChallenge 13 – Host a New Event

It’s Friday the 13th! In New Leaf, that meant you might get a little bad luck. But what if it was a reason for Jack to make a quick appearance? Or some new purveyor of luck and judgement?

We have all the major US and Japanese holidays so far in Animal Crossing, but what else could we celebrate?

A Festive Trio

I’d love full moon celebrations each month. We don’t have many late-night events so I’d enjoy having an event that spans the new-day cut off and lets us play all night! For the full moon, maybe we could get a wolf to host or a black cat like Kiki. Our host would introduce the theme of the full moon and we could then collect shells or bugs in accordance with the theme. Maybe we’d gather/craft ingredients for a spell. Or make candles for a seance where we summon the ghost of Tortimer!

What special events do you want to see?

#ACNHChallenge – Order at the Roost

Brewster is the best. Standing there washing mugs in his vest and apron while you sip your coffee and spill the tea about your day. His presence is as soothing as his hot beverages. And his passion for his craft is unmatched.

For today’s challenge, either make yourself a drink you’d order at The Roost or write down/draw your favorite beverage.

Coooooo

Carney’s Coffee Order
Beans: Bones Coffee Chocolate Orange
Milk: Regular amount, half and half
Sugar: Two spoonfuls

Drink it while it’s hot, coooo

What would you order at The Roost?

#ACNHChallenge 11 – Open a New Shop

With lots of new features and mechanics, there are bound to be new shops right? Nookphones might mean an accessory shop. We could get a Bait & Tackle for bait crafting and fishing upgrades. We could speculate on the possibilities for hours (and I hope we do!).

My theory and hope is that the new stamina system will make room for some kind of restaurant. I’d love to be able to pop in and order a meal from Reese. Maybe we’ll be able to exchange perfect fruit or rare fish for higher stamina dishes. Maybe we’ll be able to craft favorite dishes for our islanders!

Bonbons & Buttercreams in ACPC

I’d love the ability to open a shop myself to earn some extra bells from islanders. My little chocolate shop in Pocket Camp offers sweet stamina bonbons and buttercreams!

What kind of shop would you open in New Horizons?

ACNH Challenge 10 – Choose a Crossover

#ACNHChallenge 10 – Choose a Series Crossover

Let’s honor Mar10 Day and talk CROSSOVERS! In New Leaf, we saw some great new character crossovers with a bunch of amiibo figures. My favorites were Cece and Viche from Splatoon – squirrel versions of the Squid Sisters.

There were some Zelda crossovers as well, but I’m really hoping for some Breath of the Wild inspired islanders to appear in New Horizons. Particularly, Kass! What if when you speak to him, his little theme sounds like an accordion? The four Champions would be fun too. Revali could have a grumpy personality and insult your character.

What crossovers do you want to see in New Horizons?

ACNH Challenge 9 – Select your Starters

#ACNHChallenge 9 – Select your starters

So there’s a theory going around that your starters in New Horizons will always be an Uchi and a Jock personality. For my picks, I’m going to work within those parameters since it’s based on some solid evidence. You can run wild! Tell me your dreamies!

Going through the list of potential islanders, I discovered I’m a snooty type. ALL my initial picks were snooty. Whatever! They’re cool and sassy and confident. Who wouldn’t want a friend who will drag you to an art gallery show (Naomi) or gossip over brunch (Blanche). But my hands are tied so:

Uchi pick: Pashmina – Come on. She’s so cute. I’ve always loved Pash. She’s the big sister I wish I’d had. Plus we have the same skill and coffee order.

Jock pick: Boots – He’s clearly a New Orleans alligator living life, rooting for the Saints and snapping up some beignets. I can get down with that. I’ll change his catchphrase to WHODAT.

Who would you pick? Will you restart until you get your perfect pair?

ACNH Challenge 8 – Discover New Fruit

#ACNHChallenge 8 – Discover a New Fruit

Islands are full of tropical delights. Bananas, mangoes, coconuts… the list goes on. But there are still PLENTY of fruits (and veggies!) that haven’t had an AC appearance.

What new fruits do you want to discover on your island?

I picked up these adorable heart shaped plums at the store the other day. Not only are they delicious, but they’re adorable too. Any kind of plum would be great to see, but I thought this shape was particularly worthy of inclusion in New Horizons.

Heart-shaped plums!
