The Golden items are really shiny. Consistently, I got the shovel. Occasionally. I got the axe. I've only gotten the fishing rod and net a couple times. I'd get all the fish and bugs for the season, and refuse to time jump to get the others. But I would forget to play again when the next season came, and by that time, I would feel like restarting for some reason.
I was never able to get an axe because I was just unlucky with the special people
I was close to the can but on the 12th day I had to go away for a family vacation and all my flowers died, then after that my 8-year old brother chopped down some trees in the town because it "obstructed his view"
The Golden Shovel is the only tool I got for AC and WW (really disapointing how you got it). I haven't played CF, though I'm getting closer to buying it.
i mean, i wouldn't say the way you get the gold shovel is disappointing. all the other tools are so difficult to obtain, would your first thought be, "hmm, maybe i should try burying this shovel and see if it comes out gold in a day?" i never in my wildest dreams woulda thought that. it took me forever to get that one the first time lol, and only then cuz a friend told me how to do it.
