Bug Off

#1MariaAlterationPosted 7/20/2013 7:32:42 AM
So today is the bug off in my town and I'm just wondering, do Island beetles count? I feel like those are auto wins.
#2teamaquashockPosted 7/20/2013 7:35:50 AM
Yes, especially the Golden beetle and Hercules Beetles are usually the best bugs to turn in.

But be careful, they appear in the evening, and the Bug Off ends at 6.

BUT there's also a chance neighbors can beat those with good bugs. (for me I almost lost to Stinky's Oak Silk Moth which had 5 more points than my Golden Beetle because he got extra points for each criteria)

Yes, but don't turn in the most valuable bugs first, work your way up:

That way you can get more furniture.

Can I turn in as many bugs as I want? Or does one bug override the other?
#5Tropical91Posted 7/20/2013 7:42:58 AM
is there any point doing the bug off again if you already have the gold trophy?

or are you just trying to get a personal best?

This is my first bug off so I guess I'll go for the gold trophy

I turned in a 19 point bug and Nat made the next lowest score a minimum of 80 points. Completely screwed me over because I ended up only having 3 bugs that were over 80 from the island.

That's not how it works.

80 points is the minimum for bug off exclusive items. You'll still get regular prizes if you beat first place.

Every time you give Nat a bug worth 80+ points that also beats the 1st place score, he gives you a piece of the bug set. IIRC you can get up to 6 pieces of the set during each Bug Off. So, if you give him increasingly more valuable bugs while also beating your 1st place score each time, then you can keep getting the items.

Oh thank you for clearing that up. So far I got the whiteboard, ladybug floor, bug lantern, and stag chair.
