I’ve played Animal Crossing: Let’s Go To The City (aka City Folks) a lot during the Christmas. But I’ve never been much into the turnip trading. Until now. Usually you get an OK price for your turnips. But last week Nook gave me 431 Bells for one turnip. To bad that I didn’ have that much turnips. But at least I earned 211 190 Bells.
