  I. SERIES 1 
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

   Release Date : 10 October 2002
   # of Cards   : 66
   Retail Price : $3.29 (a pack)
   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.

  IV. SERIES 4
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

   Release Date : 6 May 2003
   # of Cards   : Unknown
   Retail Price : $3.29
   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.

[   ]  A-061 - Tom Nook, A-101 - Boots, and P-01 - Boy (1) / Relay A

  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
        for anywhere from .10 to .25 (average) each.

        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. ^_~
