Feng Shui (風水) is an old Chinese practice where furniture and items are arranged in a certain way to increase the flow of positive energy throughout a house. This supposedly brings good health and fortune to the members of the household.

Main article: Wikipedia:Feng Shui

In the Animal Crossing series, the guidelines to Feng Shui are fairly easy. Furniture must have certain properties to contribute to Feng Shui, and it must be positioned properly in the room. There are a few lucky items that contribute to Feng Shui without requiring specific placement, but for the most part, location is key. Please note that Feng Shui only applies to the main room of the player's house. Items placed in other rooms will not affect the player's luck.

Principles of Feng Shui

Objects

Every object has two colors associated with them (the major colors in how they look). For items that have only one major color, the "two" colors are the same (see examples). However, the only colors that contribute to Feng Shui are red, green, and yellow

Examples

  • Red Armchair: This is pretty much all red. Its two colors are Red/Red.
  • Mushroom Table: This is red and white. Its two colors are Red/White. White does not contribute to Feng Shui, so for our discussion here, the mushroom table is simply Red.
  • Watermelon Table: This has a green skin and red flesh. Its two colors are Red/Green (order doesn't matter).

Position

In organizing the room, use the following charts to determine where to place the items:

First, the only tiles in the room that have an impact on Feng Shui are the two tiles closest to the right/east, bottom/south, and left/west walls. In Animal Crossing the top/North wall is used as well, for orange colored furniture. For the first room the player has (4x4), that covers the whole room. Once the house is upgraded, however, there will be non-Feng Shui tiles in the center and top/north parts of the room.

Each tile that has Feng Shui has two colors associated with it. The west wall's tiles are Yellow/Yellow, the south wall's tiles are Green/Green, and the east wall's tiles are Red/Red. In the corners where they overlap, the tiles have one of each color. The diagrams above illustrate this.

  • Putting yellow items in the west part of the rooms will increase the amount of money that the player can find. High amounts of Feng Shui will increase the player's chances of getting more Bells from a Money Rock (or the maximum amount of ores if that occurs).
  • Putting red items in the east part of the rooms will increase the number of items that the player can find.
  • Putting green items in the south part of the rooms will increase the player's overall luck (money and items).
  • In Animal Crossing (Gamecube), putting orange items in the north part of the rooms will increase overall luck (money and items).

Placement

In Feng Shui (both real and in game), placement is everything.

The key is to match the item's colors to the tile's colors as best as possible. If an item has only one color, it will only match once; if an item has two colors, then it should be placed so that it matches twice. Let's use the items we described above.

Examples

  • Red Armchair: Red/Red. This is best placed on the east side, at least three tiles from the bottom, so that it sits in a Red/Red tile. Since two colors match, it gets two Feng Shui points. If the player were to place it in a Red/Green tile, only one color would match, and it would get only one Feng Shui point.
  • Mushroom Table: Red. This only has one color. It can be placed in any tile that has red in it, and will always only get one Feng Shui point, even if the tile is Red/Red (since it has only one color match).
  • Watermelon Table: Red/Green. This is best placed in the southeast corner, where the tiles are also Red/Green. Since two colors match, it gets two Feng Shui points. If the player places it in either a Green/Green, Red/Red, or Yellow/Green tile, it would get only one Feng Shui point.
Note: Tables and items on them that are in a Feng Shui tile both count for points. Getting good tables is part of the strategy.

Maximum Feng Shui points

A player can attain a total of 184 points:

63 + 3 + 118 = 184
  • where 63 is the amount of points attainable by placing special lucky items in Feng Shui squares [21*3]
  • where 3 is the amount of points attainable by placing lucky items in the middle of the room
  • and where 118 is the highest possible value of the remaining squares after placing special lucky items [(80-21)*2]

{\underbrace{ [21 \times 3] }_{\text{special lucky items}} + \underbrace{ 3 }_{\text{lucky items in middle}} + \underbrace{ [(80-21) \times 2] }_{\text{highest possible value of remaining}} = 184}

Lucky items

Some items are considered lucky and add 1 point for being anywhere in the room. A few items, such as the Lucky Gold Cat, both have Feng Shui colors and are also lucky. The Lucky Gold Cat, Bug Trophy, Fish Trophy and Flower Trophy are Yellow/Yellow, so if the player places them on Yellow/Yellow tiles, they will count for three points each! The list of lucky items are as follows:

  • Angler Trophy (AC:GC)
