The game is somewhat similar to the popular party game, Mario Party, but with Animal Crossing characters.[4] Each game of amiibo Festival will correspond to a month of the year, with corresponding events, as in the main series Animal Crossing series games.[5] However board game mode is not the only mode in amiibo Festival.[6] There are 8 other games available.

The main screen in amiibo Festival is a plaza where the player can select which games they want to play and customize certain elements. The middle has the area where villagers that the player inserted with amiibo cards and Lloid on top of a pedestal where they can change the human villagers names from the default Boy 1, Girl 1, Boy 2, etc. Around the board are mini games that can be played after they have been built. Near the top of the hub is the train where the main board game is played. In the top left corner is the happy ticket meter. This shows how many tickets the player has and how many happy points are needed to obtain another ticket. Happy points are collected by playing the games; the tickets are used to build the other mini games and add features to the game.

Game Modes

Amiibo Festival has several different game modes outside of the main board game mode that can be unlocked via happy tickets. Most of them require the use of amiibo cards instead of the amiibo figures used to play the board game.

Board Game

The first mode is the traditional board game. This mode requires the use of at least one amiibo figure (any other players can use a preset human villager). Each game is set in a different month; the goal is to collect as many happy points as possible during the month. The game board has several different tiles which the player can land on: pink spaces give happy points and/or Bells, purple spaces will take away happy points and or bells, and green spaces are special event spaces that will appear when special villagers visit the town; At the end of the month all Bells will be converted to happy points and the player with the most happy points wins.
