      Get on Moon Mountain without a bridge

      Use the following steps to get on top of Moon Mountain without building the bridge. Go to the tree behind the construction builder's house (where you get home extensions). Press A on the side of the tree that is closest, or faces, the river. Your character should climb the tree and hop off on the mountain. To get down simply press A where you climbed up the tree and he will hop down.

      Forest spirit

      Throw a vegetable in the pond in the forest by standing on the bridge and pressing A. A spirit should appear and ask what you wish for.

      Easy money

      Look for wild fruit or herbs around the land then take them to the Shipping Bin. -From: alakazam@ekns.net

      Upgraded tools in a single night

      Go to the Bar at night and start using a tool (Hammer, Axe, Sickle, Hoe, Watering Can) on nothing. When you get tired, just get about ten drinks of water from the bartender, then start doing it again. Note: This is a very slow process that requires patience.

      Free eggs

      You can get free eggs by leaving your chickens out side. They will find their own food, and also give you eggs. Just make sure that you put them inside during the winter, and also when it rains.

      Grow strawberries

      Build a greenhouse and go to the Flower Shop to find every season's crop. There will be strawberry seeds that you can get for $120.

      Gold milk

      Win first place in the cow festival to get gold milk from the winning cow.

      Marble

      Buy some flower seeds and plant a Moon Drop Flower and a Pink Cat Flower. When they have grown, a boy (Stu) will come to the farm and tell you to plant more. Plant four more Moon Drop Flowers and four more Pink Cat Flowers. When they have grown, the boy will come back and ask to trade with you. Answer "Yes" to get a marble. Note: You can find Pink Cat Flowers at the Flower Festival, and remember to buy at least five of them.

      Music Box

      During the Summer, go to the dog house. Line yourself with it, facing your field. When positioned right, you will be in between the dog house and the crate that you put your vegetables in. From there, walk towards the end of the field. You will have to go around the crate. Walk until (as it says in the map) the same tree you found the map in is to your left. Dig in the spot where the two (dog house and tree) are lined up. You will have to strike the ground with the hoe approximately ten times. You will discover a rusty music box. Take it to the Tool Shop and Rick the shop keeper will fix it. It should be given to the girl of your choice, because it plays a love song.

      Blue Vase

      Go to the mine in Winter and dig for a Blue Rock. Give the Blue Rock to the Antique Shop owner to get a Blue Vase. It will make your house and family life better.

      Weather Vane

      This item can be obtained by digging in the mine.

      Book

      The Artisan will give you a book in year three. Give it to the woman you like.

      Feeding your dog

      To feed your dog, simply put food in his bowl. Additionally, keep him inside during winter to make him happier.

      Puppies

      Sometime in the game, Taro (the dog by the potion shop), will have puppies. They will say that your dog got her pregnant. You will know it is true because the puppies will look like your dog.

      Saving time

      When something is bought, buy as much as you can afford so you do not have to buy the same item again when it runs out. Only ship crops during the day, and feed and water everything at night.

      Hurricane

      Watch the weather forecast and talk to your wife everyday. One day they will warn you about a hurricane. Keep your animals inside on that day. Your horse and dog, however, will be safe.

      Getting your girl happy

      Give your girl things she that loves. Ann loves wool and corn. Karen loves tomatoes and berries, which you can find in the forest. Elli loves strawberries. Maria loves spring cabbage.

      Getting married

      Select a young lady of your choice. Dance with her at festivals, give her presents every day, and be very nice to her. When the heart at lower right corner of the screen turns red or pink, buy a blue feather from Rick's Tool Shop. If he does not have it, he will get it. Give the feather to her. If she accepts, you will be married on the following Sunday. -From: alakazam@ekns.net

      Having a child

      After getting married, be extremely nice to your wife. Do not stay out late or talk to another girls, and bring her gifts. After thirty days, she will begin to act strangely. In another sixty days, you should have a child. -From: alakazam@ekns.net

      Cliff and Ann

      You are not the only person in the town that can get married and have children. Save a vegetable from a harvest in spring the first year for the 18th. A young man will be in front of your house. He will say that he is hungry. Give him the vegetable, and he will get up and introduce himself as Cliff (you can find him in the forest even if you do not cure his hunger). Give him gifts everyday, talk to him, and do not date Ann. If he likes you enough, he will come to your house one day and invite you to his wedding. After he and Ann get married, they will live on Ann's father's ranch. You can find them both wandering around the pasture. Many times Cliff will have a black eye and say he and his wife got into a fight, but they made up in the morning. Even though it seems they do not get along, a little while later, if you continue to talk to them, Cliff will make a comment about how Ann is not supposed to move around much because she is pregnant.

      Harris and Maria

      You can make Harris and Maria marry by giving Harris daily presents. He likes potatoes the most, and will also reward you with a recipe for giving him one. Keep giving Harris potatoes and other gifts, and you will eventually view mini-scenes with Maria giving a letter to Harris and Harris saving Maria from an evil salesman. Soon, Harris will stop by your house and invite you to their wedding.

      Kai and Karen

      If you are nice to Karen, she will not leave. Then, be nice to Kai by bringing him gifts. Go to the bar. He will start talking about her. Soon he will visit your house and invite you to his wedding. Note: If you are not nice to them, both will leave.

      Popuri and Gray

      Give eggs and other things to Gray to become friends. Then, go by the Green Ranch and you will see Popuri and Gray talk after the flowers are grown one night. That Sunday, they will get married.

      Power Nut locations

      Power Nuts permanently increase your stamina. They can be obtained at the following locations:

        One of the Power Nuts is located beneath the earth on your farm. Plow many different spots with your hoe to find it.

        Travel to the pond next to the fisherman's tent in the winter. Hit the large rock nearby with a level 3 golden hammer to reveal a Power Nut. The rock must be broken in a single swing.

        First, obtain a marble by planting a Moon Drop Flower and a Pink Cat Flower. When they have grown, a boy (Stu) will come to the farm and tell you to plant more. Plant four more Moon Drop Flowers and four more Pink Cat Flowers. When they have grown, the boy will come back and ask to trade with you. Answer "Yes" to get a marble. Treat the harvest sprites nicely; visit them frequently and bring them gifts. Go see the sprites. Trade the marble for the Power Nut.

        A Power Nut can be found in the mine with the precious rocks and minerals during winter. Travel four levels down. You have to find the holes in the floor and go into it to drop to the next level. The holes are hard to find. Finding this Power Nut takes luck and patience.

        You can purchase a Power Nut from the peddler at the Flower Festival during the first year for 1000G. If you do not have enough money to buy it at this time, the peddler may stop at your house during the year.

        Win a Power Nut at the Egg Festival by matching the most colored eggs.

        Catch a large fish during the spring. Throw the fish into the exact center of the pond that is at the base of Moon Mountain by the fisherman's tent. This may have to be done multiple times to find the correct location. A Harvest Goddess will appear and reward you with a blue Power Nut. This will prevent you from becoming too tired or sick in the rain.

        Before doing any physical activity, throw any vegetable grown on your farm into the pond located next to the Carpenters' house, between the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Make sure you do not press B while on route. A beautiful goddess will appear and give you a wish to use for one of three choices: "Weather", "Strength", or "Love". Choose "Strength", and she will give you a Power Nut.

        During the Spring, fish off the dock by the beach. Eventually you will earn a Power Nut instead of a fish.

        Befriend Basil, Popuri's traveling father. After a while, he will reward your friendship with a Power Nut.
