I know, it happens! Oddly enough same deal at curry's was around 460 degrees heat recently...
Used my work 7.5% off voucher scheme and found an old £5 voucher from a previous purchase so not too bad. Can sell this on when I bored too unlike digital.

Physical version every time, or a crazy low price on the eshop, often using a non UK eshop for making the purchase.

Showing 5 to 10 days for me... But I would guess they are showing / offering that time range to avoid people complaining, if it does not arrive quickly.... Understandable really.. Makes sense.
What’s so good about this game? Got it, tried it and thinks it’s pants.

There is nothing to do, yawn

That is unfortunate that you didn't like the game, if you bought a physical copy, maybe sell it.

It is, maybe I just don't get it. I'm just running around aimlessly not able to find material or build/do anything. The game doesn't even save to cloud, so a pain to transfer between consoles.

Sadly I brought digital

It seems it takes a while to really open up. Just play it for a few hours a day if you can and once you have unlocked enough it should hopefully keep you busy! Happy Gaming buddy and hope it works out for you! Might as well get some of your moneys worth! 😁

I was very tempted to buy it digital, due to no stock and the virus, but managed to pick up a used copy on ebay for £35 last week... Animal crossing was too risky of a purchases via digital, due to me not playing the the past games and the game not been my usual idea of fun... I did however whilst waiting purchase Stardew Valley on the South African eshop store, which kind of drew into making the purchase of Animal crossing..
Thanks just managed to get one
I did the same got a cartridge only version on eBay for £35

It builds up slowly over the first 3 or 4 days, I've had it for 2 weeks and have played 25 hours so far so I've found plenty to do.
There’s soo much t do but you can do it at your own pace. Easter egg hunt is pretty fun

Coming from someone who doesn’t particularly like “sims” type games...I bought Stardew Valley when it was released on Switch, and it’s incredible.

On that basis alone I’m tempted by Animal Crossing but I’m also hesitant because there doesn’t seem much “point” it.

Maybe I’ll take a punt...

At £44.99, you could buy it and try it, in perhaps a few more days, stock of the game might become hard to find, you could sell it on ebay and maybe cover the costs of the game, I've seen used ones sell for over £50 , so you might need to sell it at closer to £53.99 including postage to break even after fees and postal costs.
Ordered, thought if I dont like it at least there is some resale value. Digital version too much £

'Got it, tried it' makes it sound like you played for half an hour. You'll get the most out of this game playing for an hour or so a day, for months.
Anyone played the mobile version? How similar is it to the full game? I've been playing the mobile game to see if it's the sort of thing I'd enjoy playing as it's a lot of money to risk on something I wouldn't get on with! I've enjoyed the mobile game as it's quite chill!

That deal was actually -126 yesterday. I think people vote it cold because it's RRP, then gamers come and vote it hot because it's in stock.

Haha that's what I've done too! Looking at reviews, it's similar to the mobile game but there's way, way more to do.

I'm waiting to get a switch but AC is gonna be one of if not the first game I get for it.

You could just do what I did as an Animal Crossing newbie. Go find the polygon guide for how to do the first week. If I hadn't used that, I'd have absolutely no idea what you're meant to do in terms of progression.

You're meant to be finding resources (three types of wood, stone, iron nuggets are the main three) and doing the various other tasks/activities needed to reach the Nook/Nook+ goals to then get Nook Miles.

I'm actually enjoying it now, although the game is definitely slower paced than I'm used to in general, and days 1-2 were incredibly slow.

I feel like now's a great time to invest a bit more time in a game/series you wouldn't have otherwise cared about, and this is definitely the case for me.

Maybe don't write it off so quickly. It's a game about patience really.

You have several debts to pay off as you keep upgrading your house. Keep talking to nook. Get the shop, donate bugs/fish/fossils, get the museum, invite new villagers, build a bridge, upgrade the resident services, build a camp, get more villagers, increase island ranking, get kk to hold a concert, get more bugs, fish, fossils. You're going to want to get more personal storage asap via pocket upgrades at the nook terminal.

It's not a game you can play non-stop to completion, it's a game to play a couple hours a day as it's synced to real world time (though I've probably been on like 40h since I got it a week ago). If you do want to rush it you can cheat via 'time travel' by changing the switches clock but it isn't recommended. Take your time, relax, and enjoy it as it's meant to be played.

Resources are daily (besides tours to mystery islands) or take a few days with regards to fruit, flowers, etc. Wood from trees, minerals from rocks, fossil digging spots reset at 5am every day, this is also when you receive deliveries, constructions complete, new items in shops, and other things reset.

Every day you'll find a glowing spot on the ground, if you dig this it will have 1000 bells. If you plant money here it will grow into a tree that triples what you put in (though there's something like a 50/50 chance it will limit what you put in to 3x10,000 even if you put more so don't chuck in 90,000).

Every day there will be one rock that spits out money if you hit it with your shovel or axe (I prefer shovel, it seems quicker). Done properly this gives you 16,000 bells a day. Rocks work on a timer from the first hit so you have to hit them as quickly as possible before they stop giving items to a max of 8 items. To do this right you need to dig a couple holes behind you so that when you hit the rock it doesn't push you back out of range and waste time.

There's also a piece of furniture hidden in trees once a day that will drop if you shake it (doesn't drop from hitting). This only appears in normal trees not fruit trees. There is also a piece of furniture in one of the trees whenever you go to a mystery Island.

And always worth checking the beaches first thing on a new day as bottles contain new DIY recipes.

Other characters will show up on random days with a task you'll be rewarded for (with furniture usually) or to sell items or buy your extra bugs and fish at a premium price.

If you really want a lot of money and don't mind grinding you can farm tarantulas as they sell for 8,000 - or 12,000 if you save them to sell to flick when they visit. To do this you need to go to a mystery island, pick all the flowers, cut down all the trees, dig up all the stumps, break all the rocks (eat fruit then hit with shovel or axe), then run around in circles scaring away bugs. There will be waterbugs which you can catch and let go when storage is full. Done properly you'll see a tarantula every few minutes. These knock you out so you have to be slow and careful. Stand still holding y with net equipped while they're getting ready to attack then when they go back to normal edge forwards for a few steps and stop again, repeat till close close enough to catch.

Most of the fish and bugs can only be found in certain months of the year so it will literally take a year of regular play to catch everything. There are various season events to the game as well that you can only get unique items if you play then. We're halfway through the eggday event, and in a couple of weeks it will be the earthday event.
Seems like I need you to guide me through this, I still got flimsy axe and not shovel yet
