# How to get Money
On the day of the Horse Racing Festival, get a basket and proceed to Rose Square. Make a bet on the race and try to win 300 medals. At the end of the festival, spoke with the Mayor and exchange your Medals for Truffles and place them all in your basket. Leave Rose Square, then place your Basket in the Shipment Box. Continue the game as normal afterwards. When Gotz picks it up the next day, you will earn 15000 G.
A good way to build up some profits is to take Orichalc Ore found in the Spring Mine to the blacksmith with 1,000 G. Ask him to make the jewelry. Back after he finished and took it. Then, put it in the shipping box and sold it for 2,000 G. Repeat the process with more ore as much as desired.
Start with 10,000 G and baskets. On one day of horse racing, take the basket to one of the entrances of the Rose Plaza. Save the game. Take the basket with you and go to the Mayor. Have him start each race, but do not bet on them yet. Write down or remember who won the race. Reload the saved game just before you go to the mayor and bet on the winning horse. This should be the same winners unless there is an extreme change in the winners pay out multiplier, such as 5 or less jumping to 13, and another horse getting very low or close to the number of winners. Bet as much as desired. The pay outs are usually very close to what they are every time you reload the game. You should get lots of medals this way. Purchase the brooch for 18 medals. Fill up the basket if you can. Leave the horse races after all three finished. Take the basket and dump it into your shipping bin. The next day when Zack picks up your belongings, he will comment on having so much there for him. The money will come from the brooches you just sold for 2,000 G each. If you do not win that many race medals, or want to try again, reload the saved game and start over.
Go to the Fall horse race and bet an even amount on all contestants. You can get a necklace for 20 medals, then sell at a price of 2000 G. For example, with Hephestus, bet 10 medals (cost 500 G) and 60 medals. This is worth 6000 G, 500 G multiplied by four is only 2000 G, giving you the advantage. Note: This will not work only if the winner is x2, but then you'll break even. Having a large backpack is recommended.
# Help from Harvest Sprites
To get help from the Harvest Sprites, each providing a lot of bread, which you can buy at the supermarket. Gnome love bread. After you feed them, their heart points should rise to 3. Now you can ask them to do your work (watering, caring for animals, harvesting), or you can play games with them. Do not forget to give them some bread each week (one piece for each) to maintain their heart level. Note: Buy them flour instead of bread. It is cheaper and they like it more. You can get 18 flours or 9 bread for the same price.
Build a fence on your field and there will be someone who will throw you a chicken in there. Because they are stuck there, they can not walk around the farm and hard to find. They also will find their own food in the same area everyday, so you do not have to feed them.

# Golden Lumber
Once you are a friend of Thomas', he will come to you with a bit of a problem. He will say that he got into a game and he will use to lie with the Mayor next town over and needs you to get him an item. You have until 19:00 if you want to help him. He will come to your home, so be outside. Your reward is a part of Golden Lumber. Whenever this happens, it is a different item. Try storing various items, such as truffles and bracelets. To get Gold Lumber, have 999 Wood in your shed. Gotz will sell 100,000 G Gold Lumber for each. This seems a lot, but it will not rot.
# Kappa and the Power Berry
During any season except for Winter, throw two cucumbers in the lake near the mountain. A Kappa will appear and ask to be left alone.

# Mystic Tools

Note: It is best to play this game before 2:00 or the Harvest Goddess may not want to play.

She likes anything that can be harvested from your farm, including the flowers that you find around the Mountain.
# Seaside House

Do not build a fence outside on your soil to store your chickens. Your fence can be damaged. Instead, build a fence out of stones. Collect stones from your garden and build a stone fence the same way you would build a regular wooden fence. This will keep your chickens safe, and will not prevent a wild dog from breaking through the stone fence to scare your chickens.

Elli loves milk. Ellie also likes Magic Grass that is found in the fall.
The easiest girl in town to befriend is Karen from the supermarket. To get her to like you, give her lots of wine. She also likes fruit, but the wine works the best. When your friendship increases, there will be a sequence in which he received a special wine from her father and handed over the bottle. Save it, and on her birthday (Fall 15), wrap the wine in the supermarket and give it. This will provide a huge boost in the relationship.
To get Mary to like you, give her Blue Grass every day (at least two) and talk to her twice. It will give at least a blue heart by Summer in the first year.

Give the honey to Popuri (it is one of her favorite things) then talk to her twice. Then, go to the Poultry Farm (where Popuri lives) 11:00 to 4:00 and talked to her twice again. Giving her another gift is optional.
# Get a girlfriend
If you want a certain girl to be your girlfriend, make sure you bring the things he likes at least once daily. Find out what the schedule is, so you know what she is doing at any time of day. Always talk to her and bring her some of the plants you grow. If he does not like anything you give her, do not give it to him again.
Avoiding the problem of plants and animals
Save the game before you go to bed, just in case you forget to feed the animals, water your plants, etc. You can only turn off your game, restart, and re-doing what forget the first time.
# Harvest of plants was
Note that if you plant seeds then water nine spaces with a level 2 or higher watering can, you will not be able to reach the plants in the middle without cutting a stalk from the side. However, if you recruit a Harvest Sprite to harvest crops for you, can walk through the plant and harvest the middle. This is only useful for crops that can be harvested more than once though.
Buy a lot of Gold Lumber, then put it in your field. The next day, an event will occur in which almost every character will visit and yell at you. This includes the Mayor.
