           This checklist was created on 17 January 2003

           This guide is _not_ meant instruct use of the
           GameBoy Advance e-Reader peripheral. This is
           meant simply to be a _card collecting_ guide.
    
           For a detailed guide on e-Reader use, see:
           http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/gamecube/file/animal_crossing_ereader.txt
    
           This guide is a work in progress! I will update
           as soon as information is available, but until
           then, I am including placeholders in this file.
           These placeholders will be updated with proper
           information at later dates.

       Description  : This first set of Animal Crossing e-Reader cards
        were insanely popular among fans of the series. Players across
        the country could take a break from collecting items in the game
        and satisfy their collecting needs in real life! For the first
        month or so after launch, Animal Crossing e-Reader cards were
        still hard to find, most stores having sold out quickly. Packs
        of five cards could be found in stores for outrageous prices of
        $7.99 and up! Thankfully, they became easier to find and are
        now in stock and available at most video game stores.

       Description  : Yes, Nintendo has finally added what everyone has been 
       waiting for - 'Classic Game Cards'! Now, two previously unobtainable 
       (through _regular_ in-game methods, don't give me all that Action Replay 
       this and that hoohah... I got my Forbidden 5 from marioxb ;p).. anyway, 
       two previously unobtainable NES games are available by scanning these 
       special e-Reader cards! So far, Nintendo has released cards for 
       'Ice Climber' and 'Mario Bros.'; perhaps if a Series 5 sees a release, 
       we'll get more games (Super Mario Bros., anybody)? Anyway, more of the
       usual in this set.. neat new designs, and some of my personal favorite 
       K.K. songs.. so, get to collecting!

      V. PROMOS AND MISCELLANY
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
       Nintendo has been known to satisfy their hungry fans' appetites
       with fun and new additions to their gaming experiences. Animal
       Crossing e-Reader cards are no exception. As a result, Nintendo
       has released promotional e-Reader cards to become well prized
       treasures in the collections of Animal Crossing fans. Hopefully,
       they will keep this up, and fans will have tons of interesting
       new cards to add to their sets!

    [   ]  E-001  -  Animal Crossing Promo e-Reader Card ("K.K. Ska")
    
      This card is included in the promo pack of e-Reader cards that
      is packaged with the e-Reader peripheral. This pack also comes
      with the Manhole-e Game & Watch game, and three cards from the 
      Pokémon-e: Expedition series. When this card is scanned in-game, 
      you receive a letter from K.K. Slider welcoming you to the world
      of Animal Crossing e-Reader cards, as well as the aircheck for
      "K.K. Ska." If you scan it through the e-Reader when it is not
      connected to the GameCube, you will be given a passcode for a
      Gold Stereo that you can redeem in-game.
    
    [   ]  E-002  -  NES Link Promo Design Card
    
      This card was included in the polybagged December 2002 issue
      of Nintendo Power (#). This card, when scanned at the Tailor's,
      loads a design of Link (from Legend of Zelda) holding a triforce.
      This design can be applied to clothing, umbrellas, walls, and
      floors. The card came attached to a cardstock square that has 
      information about how to scan it into the game.

      While not exactly "promo" cards (ie. they are indentical to the
      cards found in Series 2 packs, and have no different numbering),
      these cards were promotional items given to certain retailers
      a week or so before the release of Series 2. Like 'Air Hockey',
      these cards were given to select retailers to be given away in
      promotion (in this case, for the soon-to-be released Series 2 
      Animal Crossing cards). Boxes containing a few hundred cards 
      were delivered to most GameStop (Babbage's) stores, where you 
      will be given a set of these three cards. Like I said, they're
      not anything special.. but free cards is definitely worth note!

      VI. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
      1. What's an e-Reader, and what does it have to do with Animal Crossing?
    
            The e-Reader is a peripheral that was released by Nintendo
            on September 16, 2002. The device allows for cards containing
            patented dot-code technology to be scanned in, producing a
            result (mini-games, information, etc). In Animal Crossing,
            the cards store item data which, when scanned, sends your
            character an in-game letter with an item enclosed (furniture,
            or even an NES game!) For a detailed guide on e-Reader use, see:
            http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/gamecube/file/animal_crossing_ereader.txt
    
            
      2. What items can I get by scanning Animal Crossing e-Reader cards?
    
            There are three different ways to get three different items
            by scanning Animal Crossing e-Reader cards. They are:
               - Sending passcode printed on card to any villager
               - Sending passcode printed on card to pictured villager (character)
               - Scanning card through e-Reader at Post Office
            
            When you send the passcode to any villager in your town
            (enclosed in a letter, of course), you almost always 
            receive a reply in a few days, with a piece of furniture
            attached! 
            
            If you sent the code to the villager who was
            pictured on the front of the card, if you receive a
            reply, it will have an NES game attached! No word yet
            on whether or not you can get the more rare NES games
            this way (but as of now, I highly doubt it).
    
            If you scan a card through the e-Reader (after loading
            the program from the Post Office or Tailor Shop), your
            character will immediately receive a letter from the
            pictured villager, with a piece of furniture attached.
    
    
      3. What about all these other cards (Town Tune, Design, etc.)?
    
            In addition to the Character cards featured in every
            Series, Nintendo includes cards that yield different
            results when scanned.
    
            Card Type: Town Tune
            Found In : Series 1, Series 2, Series 3
            Image    : K.K. Slider song title and picture.
            Scanned  : @ Town Tune Board (near Post Office)
            Result   : Loads Tune found on card into game.
                       Replaces your current Town Tune.
    
            Card Type: Design
            Found In : Series 1, Series 2, Series 3
            Image    : Mabel and Sable showcasing a design.
            Scanned  : @ Tailor Shop (speak to Mabel)
            Result   : Loads design found on card into game.
                       Replaces one of your current designs.
    
            Card Type: Special/Mini-Game
            Found In : Series 2, Series 3
            Image    : Character (Boy or Girl)
            Scanned  : e-Reader (not connected to GCN)
            Result   : Loads a mini-game onto your GameBoy Advance.
                       An e-Reader application in which you scan 
                       multiple Character cards and have them
                       participate in a mini-game.
    
            Card Type: Sibling
            Found In : Series 2, Series 3
            Image    : Two special characters that are siblings.
            Scanned  : @ Post Office (regular e-card)
            Result   : There's no real difference other than the
                       fact that there's two codes on this card.
                       You get a different in-game item depending
                       on if the card is scanned, or the password
                       is mailed to a villager, and depending on
                       which passcode is used.
    
    
      4. Where can I purchase Animal Crossing e-Reader cards?
    
            Animal Crossing e-Reader cards can be found at:
            EBWorld   (http://www.ebworld.com)      $2.99 (a pack)
            KBToys    (http://www.kbtoys.com)       $2.99 (a pack)
            GameStop  (http://www.gamestop.com)     $2.99 (a pack)
            Wal-Mart  (http://www.walmart.com)      $3.29 (a pack)
            CompUSA   (http://www.compusa.com)      $3.99 (a pack)
            Toys'R'Us (http://www.toysrus.com)      $4.99 (a pack)
            Best Buy  (http://www.bestbuy.com)      $4.99 (a pack)
    
            These prices may not be accurate, these are to the best of 
            my memory. Basically, your best bet is purchasing cards 
            (if possible) at EBWorld (you can easily order them online 
            with a credit card), or just check in at your local video 
            game store.
      
            If anyone has any contributions to this list (major chain
            stores only, please) feel free to e-mail me with the store
            name, website (if applicable), and retail price. Thanks!
       
    
      5. I need ____ to complete my set! How can I get it!?
    
            Trade, trade, trade! I know it's hard not to be unsure
            and skeptical about trading items across the web, but
            you'll find that most people around here are trustworthy!
            Trading via snail mail has been one of the most fun
            and enjoyable things about collecting Animal Crossing
            e-Reader cards. You can look (or post) offers on the 
            GameFAQs Animal Crossing e-Reader message board:
    
            http://s2.cgi.gamefaqs.com/boards/gentopic.asp?board=34366
    
            If you're all about spending extra money, however, you
            can always check eBay (http://www,ebay.com) and see which 
            cards you can find for a good price.
    
    
      6. When will ____ be released? She/he's my favorite character!
    
            Release dates and character lists for upcoming Animal Crossing 
            card sets are slowly becoming available. Besides this FAQ, 
            another good source is Nintendo's site (http://www.nintendo.com)
            since it is updated more frequently to their site dedicated 
            primarily to the e-Reader (http://www.nintendo-e-reader.com). 
            Also, check latest issues of Nintendo Power magazine. I will 
            be updating this FAQ as much as possible with new information 
            as it comes.
    
    
      7. How can I safely store my cards?
    
            Animal Crossing e-Reader cards are made of the same standard 
            cardstock as most other trading cards (such as Pokémon, Magic, 
            etc.) and are the same size. You can easily store your Animal
            Crossing cards in any assortment of card pages, boxes, and
            sleeves. I, personally, keep my cards secure inside card pages
            in a nice, hard plastic binder. It also wouldn't hurt to first
            put the card in a thin plastic card sleeve, then slip that
            inside the card pages. You can purchase such items at gaming
            and sports card stores, such as:
    
            GamesandCards.com (http://www.gamesandcards.com)
              -> Click on "Supplies and Accessories"
            
            I recommend the 'Ultra Pro Nine Pocket Platinum Series Pages',
            out of their selection. You can purchase 100 pages for $14.99,
            or look around in your area and see if you can find less pages,
            cheaper. Most gaming/sports card stores sell pages individually

            I am not associated with the above online retailers in any
            way, nor have I purchased from them. If anyone has any problem
            in transactions with any of the above merchants, please notify
            me so I can take their information out of this guide.
    
    	Please do _not_ e-mail me requesting passwords from any e-Reader
            cards. "Do not send passwords to anyone who has not purchased
            Animal Crossing-e cards. Do not distribute or sell decoded
            passwords to the public" - Animal Crossing e-Reader Card Pack
            And I won't. Trust me.
    
            Special thanks go to the following people:
            andrew@timson.org - For additional information about E-001.
            thepauliwog@yahoo.com - For letting me know what year it is. >_<
    	barnett62000@juno.com - For sending me Series 4 checklist information!
            uberfuzzy@hotmail.com - For sending me Series 4 checklist information!
            obijam@mn.rr.com - For sending me Series 4 Mini-Game card information!
    
            I'd like to thank everyone on the GameFAQs Animal Crossing board,
            except for those who ask "Is Punch-Out!! in Animal Crossing?!,"
            and those who flame them for it. Just kidding..
    
            I'd also like to thank everyone I've traded e-Reader cards with
            over the past couple of months. Getting mail has never been so
            much fun! See you in Series to come!
            
            I'd also like to thank Wal-Mart, for always having neat stuff
            for me to buy. Ah, my home away from home.. even though they
            only seem to stock a handful of AC e-Reader card packs, EVER.
            Oh well. I still love thee, Wal-Mart. 
    
            I can't forget to thank my annoying.. er.. loving boyfriend, 
            Richard, for putting up with my Animal Crossing addiction, and
            for leaving me alone long enough to let me write this thing up. 
            Okay, _now_ I'm ready to go play Phantasy Star. ^_~
