New Leaf

The Igloos are the Winter equivalent to the Summer Campers. They are set up in January when the snow is settled. Inside, one villager is set up with a large pot of chowder over a warm fire and a rug. In Dobutsu no Mori, in place of the chowder was a small wok with slowly-bubbling blocks of tofu. The player can either chat to the animal in the igloo, or can play a game with them, which includes gambling, trading, or guessing games, depending on the villager's personality, to win exclusive items. Different personalities have different games. (Note: These items were only exclusive in Animal Crossing. They could be bought repeatedly from Tom Nook in Wild World).
