Animal Crossing is on a Fed Ex truck en route to my home today.

I'm going to wait on the e-reader until if/when they release the AC cards (slated for November). I'll decide then if it's really worth it.

I've got Animal Crossing ordered, but I don't plan on getting the e-reader.

I really wanna pick up Animal Crossing! I wish I had the money for it but something stupid happened to me, but I accidentally lost my coursepack for one of my classes(which is rare because I never lose anything), so I had to buy another one with the money I was going to spend on this game...and they aren't cheap. It'll be another week or two till I get back the money, then I can finally play this game! Hopefully I'll be able to rent it this weekend at least.

I did the exact same exact thing and am in the same exact situation.

I'm done with Animal Crossing until somebody finds out how to play Zelda. I probably should have tried to sell it on ebay a couple weeks ago, but the pesky "not for resale" label screwed with my morality.

My EB didn't get their shipment today. No Animal Crossing or E-Reader for me.

I was lucky enough to get off of work early today and the game is late.

The e-reader is a device that hooks into the back of a GBA. There's also a port for the link cable to hook it to a GCN as well. You buy packs of special trading cards and slide them through the reader. Different cards are planned:

* NES games
* Cards that add content to Animal Crossing
* Game & Watch Games
* Pokemon Cards

Right now, all that's available are NES games, but the reader comes with a "sampler" pack that includes samples of the other three.

The NES games you can get for the e-reader can only be played on your GBA. The ones that are available fill up five cards. When you buy your e-reader you can choose either Donkey Kong Jr. or Pinball to go with it. Other NES games I saw for sale at my EB were Excitebike and Tennis but there could be more.

AC was delivered to me today(woot for free fedex priority overnight shipping!), I love it. I won't be getting the e-reader, because I don't have a GBA.

lol!

Good news (for me), turns out my lab partner put my coursepack in her bag by accident, so now I can return the one I got and get my $47.51 back! w00t! Not that this has anything to do with AC . Best buy here I come!

Only way to get seperate towns is to use different memory cards.
