You get play coins by carrying your 3DS with you in sleep mode. Each 100 steps you take, you'll earn a play coin, up to a maximum of 10 play coins per day. Your total caps out at 300 total coins.

Dance with your 3DS, not joking. Try it!

Did you just buy your 3DS?

You get 1 play coin for ever 100 (I think) steps you take when your 3DS is in sleep mode. It's like a pedometer.

If you don't feel like walking you can always shake your 3DS up and down for a good 5 minutes.

Just close your 3DS while it's on and shake it. The 3DS will count it as taking steps and give you a play coin every 100 steps.

Some people walk but don't like having a 3DS in their pocket. Just FYI.

Don't shake your 3DS, ten minutes walking will get you ten coins easily.
If you can't walk ten minutes, go see your doctor.
