    on this FAQ once in a while. Cause school is starting really soon. Bye!
    Gotta Go Celebrate!
    Sep, 3rd: I've been waiting for a while waiting to see if cJayc would
    post my topic. I'm not sure that its ever going to see life in Gamefaqs
    so I've excepted someone else's request to post my faq on their site.
    I'll be still waiting, and improving this FAQ until it lives in
    Gamefaqs. Until then I've got some more work to do.
    Sep, 8th: School just started again, so I haven't had a lot of time to
    update. I've updated the events section and I might be thinking of

    That's about it for now!
    Sep, 23rd: I finally found out what was wrong with the ASCII Art at the

    up, were written in another font and another size! I'll send it in

    Mail-Box and added 3 more cut-scenes to the Guide, Be sure to look for
    them in the MARY & GRAY , ANN & CLIFF, and KAREN & RICK Sections.
    2. T H E  S T O R Y
      You were supposed to go on a long awaited vacation with your parents,
    when your father had to cancel due to a business trip. Having no time
    for you, your parents sent you off to your Grandpa's Farm. You've
    played with the various animals, riding cows, chasing chickens, and
    played with the children of the village. It was all boring, really.
    Your grandfather had no time for you, being occupied with the farm's
      One morning, you decided to walk up the Mother's Hill, which was
    located behind the farm. You went mid way up, when you decided to lay
    down near the flowers growing, and enjoy the nature. You slowly fall
    asleep. "Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na." You are awaken by some
    sort of music.
      You look up. Oh, its just one of the village girls. She asks you a
    question. "Do you always play alone?" she continues, "I like it here,
    too. So I come here a lot to play alone" You become friends almost
    instantly. You spend the rest of the day up at the top of Mother's
    Hill, telling her stories about the city, and your adventures.
      She starts singing again. "Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na." And
    as the sun sets, you decide to join in the singing too. It gets late so
    the two of you decide to go home.
      A few weeks later, sadly, your parents come to pick you up from the
    farm. A long time ago, you longed for this day to come; now you dread
    it. You don't want to leave the farm, the villagers, or the animals. As
    you are leaving you are stopped by the girl from the hill. She makes
    you promise that you will come back some day. You leave.
      And now a decade has passed, your grandfather has died and you want
    to become the rightful owner of the farm. The Mayor says you have 3
    years to replenish the farm, and you don't want to break your promise,
    searching for that girl of your dreams.
    3. W H Y  M A R R Y ?
      Some of you may ask, Why Marry!? I want to be single! Well, to those
    of you who ask that question, this section is totally for you! I'll
    tell you all the benefits here.
    1.	You Promised! Well, you didn't promise that you would marry her,
    but you get the picture. One thing will lead to another, and soon
    you'll be married. Besides she misses you and wants to spend the
    rest of her life with that little boy she once knew.
    2.	When you get to the farm, the mayor tells you that you have 3
    years to restore the farm to a land of plenty. And in order to
    stay you need a high enough percentage. To find out what your
    percentage is press the start button. Right at the top you see the
    name of your farm and next to it is your percentage. Percentage is
    based on many things, so I list a few here:
    -	You get 1% for each animal you have excluding your dog,
    horse, and fish.
    -	1% for each heart your dog has.
    -	1% for each heart your horse has.
    -	And, Yup, You've guessed it! 1% For each heart your wife
        So, if you marry, your percentage will be able to rise an extra
        10%, giving you a better chance of staying on the farm for
        longer than 3 years.
    3.	Chasing the girl of your dreams is fun! It also allows you to get
    to know the girl better, and gives you more of those beloved cut-
    I've convinced you haven't I? Good. Read on to the next section to
    see what girls are available.
    4. W H O  S H O U L D  Y O U  C H O O S E ?
      In the village, there are presently 5 girls available for you. But,
    who should you choose? This section will discuss the personality,
    looks, and skills of each of the girls.
      It all depends on your tastes. After you marry one of the girls,
    instead of helping on the farm, they stay at home and do, well..,
    ummm, errrr.., NOTHING!
      I know, not that great, it's one of those things I want Natsume and
    Victor Interactive to change in their future Harvest Moon games. But,
    they still did a great job.
      Now that you know what great things the girls do after marriage
    (cough, cough), you can just pick one of them, and live happily ever
    after, well, not really.
      Without any further adieu, here are the Girls!
    4.1  M A R Y
      Mary is a librarian. And for those of you who prefer looks over
    brains, than skip Mary and check the others. But, for those of you
    who like girls with personality, you can't lose with Mary!
      Being Kind and Generous Mary likes to help others and does it in a
    polite manner. She has black hair, wears glasses, has a white shirt,
    with a blue dress over it. She is almost always found in the library,
    assisting those who come and read her father's books. Her birthday is
    on the 20th of Winter, or on the 25th of Winter if your birthday is on
    the 20th.
    Occupation: Librarian
    Personality: Appreciative, Kind, Generous
    Bad Traits: None
    Looks: Below-Average
    Skills: Thinking
    4.2  E L L I
      Elli is a mid-wife.(No, not a "middle wife! A Mid-Wife is someone
    who delivers babies.) She works at the clinic and is there everyday,
    except Wednesdays. Elli is very kind, although her parents have
    passed away and she has to take care of her Grandmother, and little
    brother, Stu.
      Surprisingly Elli is the only girl with short hair. Her hair is
    brown, she wears a bow tie near her neck, and wears a blue dress. She
    is very helpful to people, always asking what's wrong and aiding
    people in the clinic. Her birthday is on the 16th of Spring, or on the
    20th of Spring, if your Birthday is on the 16th.
    Occupation: Mid-Wife
    Personality: Kind, Helpful, Nice
    Bad Traits: None that I could think of
    Looks: Average
    Skills: Medicine
    4.3	A N N
      Ann is a tomboy. Her mother passed away, and she now helps her
    father at the Inn. Although her father wants her to marry, she is
    opposed, and wants to stay single. Don't worry though, she'll marry
    you if she loves you.
      Ann has orange hair that's tied in a bow tie, and she wears blue
    overalls. She is very nice and cheerful, helping people when they are
    blue. Ann loves animals, and especially cooking. She almost always
    wins the cooking festival, if not her father will win. Ann also
    enjoys nature, every morning, weather permitting, she spends her time
    standing at the goddess spring enjoying the cool mountain air.
    Occupation: Helps at the Inn
    Personality: Cheerful, Enthusiastic, and Hardworking
    Bad Traits: Gets angry sometimes for small things
    Looks: Average
    Skills: Cooking, and Cleaning
    4.4	K A R E N
      Karen is very mature when compared to the other girls. She doesn't
    like anything her parents like and usually gets into arguments with
    them. She is also afraid that her father's shop is not well equipped.
    She likes to hang out at the beach with Rick, Kai, and Popuri during
    the summer.
      Karen has brown hair with blonde highlights at the bangs. She wears
    a vest, with shorts, and a belt. Although saying "Who are You, I'm
    afraid I don't Know You" when you meet her, she gets nicer as you
    change her heart rating (See Section 7. The Love Meter) saying things
    like "If you ever need someone to talk to, you can talk to me". Karen
    is an alcoholic, she loves wine and drinks it regularly.
    Occupation: None
    Personality: Mature, Easy Going, Care Free
    Bad Traits: Gets Extremely Angry if given something she does not like
    Looks: High Above Average
    Skills: Dancing, and Singing
    4.5  P O P U R I
      Popuri, one of my favorites! Although she is a crybaby sometimes,
    and although she is practically mean to you when she doesn't know
    you, Popuri is great once you get to know her. Her father is
    presently not in the village, he has gone to find the desert flower,
    to cure his wife, Popuri's mother, Lilia. Popuri has one brother
    named Rick who helps out on their Poultry farm.
      Popuri has pink hair just like her mother, wears a red dress, and
    has a headband. She becomes nicer and nicer the more you get to know
    her, and loves almost everything excluding ores and such. Popuri is
    also the easiest girl to marry, because every time you talk to her,
    her heart rating goes up (See Section 7. The Love Meter) and all the
    things she loves are picked from Mother Nature.
    Occupation: None
    Personality: Lovable, Carefree, Immature
    Bad Traits: Cries A lot
    Looks: Above Average
    Skills: Umm.. Crying!

    6.  L I K E S  &  D I S L I K E S
      Now that you know where all the girls are located, in order to raise
    their hearts (See Section 7. The Love Meter) You have to give them
    gifts! Not just any gifts, but things they Love! Here is a pretty
    complete list of Likes & Dislikes of each girl. Some of these things
    are picked from Mother Nature, yet others require a Kitchen and
    utensils to make. Give the Girl you are trying to Marry, mostly gifts
    from the "love" section but things from the "like" section are okay
    too. Don't forget their birthdays! Try to give them jewelry if you can
    on their special day for best effects, but, if you didn't save some
    ores from winter, give the girl something she loves.
      Only give a girl gifts she dislikes/hates only if you are
    experimenting with the game or are trying to see their reactions to
    various objects. Just remember, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!!!

    7.  T H E  L O V E  M E T E R
      Ok, so you've given many gifts to the girl of your dreams. But how
    can you tell if they like you or not? The answer is the "Love Meter!"
    This little system determines at what stage your relationship is with
    that girl. But where is the Love Meter located?
      To see the love meter of a desired girl you must first talk to her.
    At the end of the sentence that she says should be a colored heart. It
    might be black, or blue, or orange. What do these colors mean? Here's a
    diagram of all the colors and what they mean.
    (\/): This is a heart! (Duh!)
    BLACK (\/): NEUTRAL.  If the girl has a black heart this means that she
           \/             is neutral. You have just met, in other terms.
                          She does not know you enough, so you must give
                          her about 25* gifts that she likes/loves to
                          change it.

      Now you know everything about the girls, their schedules, what they
    like, so you're just going to give them gifts and marry them with no
    problem at all. Right? WRONG!
      Did I tell you that for every girl there is a rival who is also
    trying to get her? So you better work fast or else the girl of your
    dreams will be married to someone else.
      In this section I will give you information on each of the 5 rivals,
    who they're trying to get, and their various histories.
    8.1	G R A Y
      Gray is the grandson of Saibara the Blacksmith. He is from the city,
    and hates the slow quiet atmosphere. Saibara has brought him to Mineral
    Village to be an apprentice and learn the trait of blacksmithing. When
    he's not working in Saibara's shop, he is found in the library reading
    some books. He lives in one of rooms in the Inn.
      Because he visits the library often, his eye catches Mary, and so he
    will be your rival if you are trying to get the affection of Mary. If
    you're going for Mary, then make sure you do not become a good friend
    of Gray, as this will speed up Gray's relationship with Mary.
    Occupation: Apprentice at Blacksmithing.
    Personality: Grumpy, Anti-Social, And Unappreciative.
    Bad Traits: All of The Above.
    Trying to Get: Mary
    8.2	T H E  D O C T O R
      The doctor was originally from the city, but came to live and work in
    the village as the doctor. He lives in the upstairs room of the clinic,
    in the room next to Elli's. Since they both work, and practically live
    together it is not surprise that The Doctor's eye is set on Elli.
      There's not much anything you can say about him, but that the only
    thing he likes is Blue and Green Grass, due to their medicinal value.
    But if you're going for Elli don't become good friends with him until
    after your marriage with Elli.
    Occupation: Doctor
    Personality: Professional, Strict, and Helpful
    Bad Traits: Also Anti-Social like Gray but to a lesser extent.
    Trying to Get: Elli
    8.3	C L I F F
      Cliff is desperately looking for work or else he'll have to leave the
    village in year 2. He lives in the Inn, and usually goes to church to
    have his sins forgotten, not that he does many bad things, but because
    he is searching for guidance and a new way of life.
      Cliff likes things that normal people would like, honey for instance.
    You shouldn't give him too many gifts as this will speed up the course
    of marriage with him and Ann. If you decide to marry Ann you've got 2
    choices about Cliff, either tell him about a job that you receive in
    year 2 and have him stay, or if you want to be evil, don't tell him
    about it and watch him leave the village.
    Occupation: Picks Grapes, if you tell him about the job.
    Personality: Appreciative, Hard Working, And Nice.
    Bad Traits: None that I could think of.
    Trying to Get: Ann
    8.4	R I C K

    Poultry Farm, helping his mother in delivering the Chickens and Chicken
    Feed to your farm. He really hates Kai (See Section 8.5) and gets into
    arguments about him with Karen. He'll marry her if you don't. Not only
    does he get into arguments with Karen he also gets into a ton of
    arguments with his sister Popuri.
      Rick is almost always found at the Poultry farm, sitting on the coach
    near the fireplace, or at the bar at night, enjoy some wine, which
    makes him a great couple with Karen.
    Occupation: Helps his Mother on The Poultry Farm.
    Personality: Likes to Argue, Hard Working, Generally Nice.
    Bad Traits: Hates Various People ex: Kai, Argues A Lot!
    Trying to Get: Karen
    8.5	K A I
      Kai only visits the village in Summer, during the other seasons he
    lives in the city. He is extremely athletic, almost always winning
    Opening Day unless you beat him. He is carefree and has a shop only
    open in Summer called "The Seaside Lodge" where he sells various food
      Being strong and Athletic, Popuri has recently fallen in love with
    Kai and will leave with him during the 3rd to 4th year, if you don't tell
    Rick about it. If you do she'll stay. So if you want Popuri, Kai is
    generally a small threat, he only comes in the Summer, and by then
    Popuri's heart rating will probably be blue or green if you're deciding
    on marrying her.
    Occupation: Owns "The Seaside Lodge" and runs it in Summer.
    Personality: Carefree, Athletic, And Bold
    Bad Traits: Likes To Boast About Himself and His Athletic Abilities.

                  hasn't been working much, ever since Popuri left, because
                  he was missing her. Then Karen enters the scene and says
                  that Popuri was the most important person in Rick's life.
                  Rick says that Popuri wasn't, but that Karen was the most
                  important. Karen is surprised and she goes into the
                  Poultry farm and that she's going to work there with
                  Rick. About 2 days later, Rick and Karen will come and
                  invite Popuri and You to their wedding. On the day that

    10.  F E S T I V A L S
      Not only are there cut-scenes to raise a girl's heart there are also
    festivals which may not only make her heart go up, but all the
    villagers will like you more if you attend or even win some of them.
    There are basically 3 types of Festivals
    1.	Contest Festivals: These are festivals like "Opening Day" or the
                          "Tomato Festival." They are contests, or games
                          which will pit you against other villagers
                          competing for a prize, or name.
                          Other Examples Include: Cooking Festival,
                          Chicken Festival, Cow Festival, Sheep
                          Festival, Dog Race, and the Horse Race.
    2.	Event Festivals: These are festivals that require no skill at all
                        and are there just for entertainment. Here are
                        all the Event Festivals: Music Festival, the
                        Harvest Festival (Even though you have to bring
                        Something) and the New Year's Party.
    3.	Romantic Festivals: This Section is going to cover this type of
                           Festival as it improve the relationship with
                           a girl of your choice more effectively than
                           the other festivals. These festivals are
                           events where you will be either able to ask a
                           girl out to the festival or give her
                           something special, for a special occasion.
    Ok, I'm going to explain to you, all the "Romantic Festivals" to
    give you an idea of what's going to happen or what you should give
    the girl of your dreams for a special occasion.
    10.1	S P R I N G
    1.	~New Years Day~

              The Inn (For Drinking & Adults)
    What Happens: (Note: You can't attend this Year 1, because you were
                   to busy unpacking your bags). Once you get to the
                   Town Square, find the girl you are trying to marry
                   and talk to her, and ask her out to dance. Or you can
                   first talk to the other villagers, then ask the girl.
    2.	~Goddess Festival~
    Day: Spring 8th
    Time: 10:00am
    Place: Town Square
    What Happens: (Note: You will probably not be able to go with a girl
                   The first year, unless you can change their heart to
                   purple by the 5th day of Spring) Talk to the girl that
                   you are trying to marry and ask her to accompany you,
                   on the 7th day of Spring, the day before the festival.
                   If she accepts then she will pick you up on the 8th in
                   the morning. Just finish your chores and go to the
                   festival with her. After the dancing she will ask you
                   if you want to go someplace quiet after the festival
                   together. If you didn't ask anybody or no one

                   dancing girls.
    3.	~Thanksgiving Festival~
    Day: Spring 14th
    Time: Whole Day
    Place: No Specific Place
    What Happens: This Festival is really hard to celebrate in year 1,
                  As you do not have a kitchen yet and can't bake
                  anything for someone. But once you get a kitchen, bake
                  cookies or something else that is sweet to eat to all
                  or some of the girls as it will raise their heart
                  ratings greatly. Give them flowers in year 1.
    10.2  S U M M E R
    1.	~Fireworks Display~
    Day: Summer 24th
    Time: 6:00pm
    Place: At The Beach
    What Happens: At 6 go to the beach and speak to the girl that you're
                  trying to marry. Ask to watch the fireworks with them.
                  (Note: You can try to ask Kai to watch with you:)
                  After talking to everyone else talk to the Mayor to
                  Start the fireworks. You sit with the girl on the dock
                  enjoying the view. After the show ends your girl will
                  talk to you and will say that it's late and you go
                  home to sleep.
    (NOTE: Tomato Festival: Even though it's a Contest Festival in a way
    it is a Romantic One. Whichever girl you are trying to marry talk to
    her and she will ask you to join her team, say yes. This applies to
    all the girls except Karen and Mary who do not participate in this
    fun event. If you're trying to get either Mary or Karen then pick a
    team of another girl to raise her relationship also. Just to tell
    you, Ann's team and Popuri's team are the strongest teams, and
    Elli's team is the weakest.)
    10.3  F A L L
    1. ~Moon Viewing Day~
    Day: Fall 13th
    Time: 6:00pm
    Place: Peak of Mother's Hill
    What Happens: As you walk to the peak of Mother's Hill, the girl that
                  likes you the most will be waiting for you. If she is not
                  the girl you are trying to marry, you might as well
                  consider marrying her. What happens is that you watch
                  the Harvest Moon rise above the peak and you talk to each
                  other. Really romantic.
    10.4	W I N T E R
    1. ~Winter Thanksgiving~
    Day: Winter 14th
    Time: 6:00am, 8:00am, 10:00am, 1:00pm, 3:00pm.
    Place: At Your Farm
    What Happens: In this festival you get chocolate/cake depending on how
                  you treated all the girls from the past seasons. One girl
                  comes on each of the above times. But she will only come
                  if she is above a black heart. If they have a purple or
                  blue heart they will give you chocolate, if they are
                  green or above you will get a cake from them. This
                  festival is pretty useful as it will give you the
                  ingredients needed for the Thanksgiving Festival where
                  you have to give the girls something like chocolate
                  cookies. Make sure you stay on your farm until all the
                  girls have come, and make sure you keep at least 2 or 3
                  girls at a purple or blue heart to receive chocolate.
    2. ~Star Night Festival~
    Day: Winter 24th

    Place: At A Desired Girl's House
    What Happens: On the 23rd talk to the girl which you want to marry and
                  she will invite you to dinner with her family. The next
                  day on the 24th at 6:00pm go to the girl's house and you
                  will have a short scene with her and her family. Who
                  knows, you might even be able to go star gazing together.
                  This festival will not only raise the girl's heart rating
                  but all of the people living in the household.
    11.  I N  O R D E R  T O  G E T  M A R R I E D
      Ok, you've probably already got the girl's heart to red, but how do
    you marry her? This section will give you all the requirements for
      Look at your house. Is it small? If it is then you need to upgrade it
    to get a kitchen and a separate bedroom as well as some decorations
    like the rug and flower vases. To upgrade you need to talk to the
    woodcutter, Gotz, who lives behind your farm to the right, or down from
    the hot spring. If you're getting confused with my directions just look
    at the sign near the hot spring, and it should point you in the right
      When you talk to him he should say "What's Up" and a menu should pop
    up saying Buy Lumber, and probably this: "Chicken House Upgrade" You
    need lumber and money to get it and it will take three 3 days to build.
    After you get the enlarged Hen House, talk to him again and you should
    get the "1st House Extension" this will require lumber and money, will
    add a kitchen to your house and will take 3 days to build.
      After that's done talk to him again and get the "Barn Upgrade" which
    requires more lumber and more money. This will take 3 days to build and
    will give you space for 10 cows and 10 sheep.
      Finally! Talk to Gotz again and he will give you the "2nd House
    Extension" which requires lumber and money to build in three days. This
    will give another room, the bedroom, complete with a fireplace, and 2
    separate beds. That's the first requirement for marriage.
      The second requirement for marriage is to have a girl's heart at red.
    She needs to love you in order to get married. And the 3rd requirement
    is to buy the "Blue Feather" at the Supermarket for 1000g.
      Now that you have those 3 requirements, you need to propose! This is
    what you do. Equip yourself with the triangle button, just like the
    tools. Stand in front of the girl and press triangle, to give the Blue
    Feather to her. If she accepts she should say something, and to check
    for yourself, press triangle, and if the feather is gone she has
      Your wedding day will be exactly in 1 week, or more if a festival
    occurs on the wedding day. To check the exact date, go to your house
    and look at the calendar. There should be a "Heart" on a date, this is
    your wedding day!!
     ~Requirements For Marriage~
    1.	2nd House Extension
    2.	A Girl With A Red Heart
    3.	A Blue Feather
    12.  P R E G N A N C Y
      Your wedding day has passed and now you're living together. You're
    thinking about having a baby. But how do you get one?
     I know what you're thinking and no, that's not how you get a baby.
    This is a family game, and do you think they would seriously add that?
    No. This section will discuss how you can get your wife pregnant,
    Harvest Moon style.
      To get your wife pregnant you need to give her gifts everyday and you
    should get hints from her when she becomes pregnant. Examples include:
    "I'm Hungry But I Don't Feel Like Doing Anything"
                  "I feel Sick"
    These are clues that your wife is pregnant. Once she is though she will
    have a baby in about 2 seasons. When she starts getting nauseous
    though, you should go to the clinic and they will announce that your
    wife is pregnant. That's about it! It's fairly easy to get your wife
    13.  T H E  B A B Y
    After 2 season since pregnancy first began your wife will give birth.
    You will be standing in the main room probably wife the mother of your
    wife waiting for the baby. After some time you will be able to see your
    wife and your new baby. You will be prompted to name him with your
    wife. Just to tell you, all the babies will only be boys, so you can't
    get a baby girl. For a season or two, your baby will be a newborn and
    will stay only in the mother's arms. But after he will be able to crawl
    and you'll be able to hold him (I think) There's not much that I know
    about the baby yet, cause I just recently had mine.
    (When He is First Born)
    6:00am - 1:00pm: In Mother's Arms, Around Table
    1:00pm - 6:00am: In Mother's Bed.

    14.  O T H E R  F U N  S T U F F  T O  D O !
      This is a new section designed to show you some stuff that you can do
    when you're bored with your relationship with your girl. If you have
    any suggestions for things that should go here, feel free to drop me a
    call at my e-mail, listed at the top of this document.
    This is a very funny one. You'll know when you've tried it!
      First of all, do you notice a very oval shape at the base of the
    waterfall near the hot-spring, in front of the mine? This is a secret.
    Here's what you do! Take one or more crops. (This includes wool, eggs,
    vegetables, fruits) Now go to the area right behind the hot-spring
    facing that oval shape. Take one of your crops and throw it into that
    oval shape!
      If done correctly, the Spring Goddess will appear and thank you for
    your offering. If she didn't show up, try throwing in a different spot!
    Keep offering your crops to her and many things will happen.
      After you give the Goddess 5 crops, she will give you a powerberry.
    After 10 she will ask you a question. The question will be: "Do you
    have a sweetheart?" Answer "Yes" to her and soon you'll be in for a
      What happens is that the girl that likes you the most will come and
    take a bath in the hopt-spring. Get in with her!! The next moments are
    totally hilarious! But, I can't tell them, see for yourself!
    This cut-scene will greatly improve the relationship with that girl! If
    done before the Goddess Festival in the first year, it will be a
    guaranteed success that she goes with you when asked.
    But, there are some requirements! In order to appease the Goddess, it
    MUST and I mean MUST be a nice, sunny day (Not raining!) and a regular
    one too. (Not on Festivals!)
    15.  F R E Q U E N T L Y  A S K E D  Q U E S T I O N S
    Looking at the Harvest Moon: Back To Nature Message Board you see a lot
    of different questions regarding marriage and other aspects that have
    to do with it. I have compiled some questions together and have
    answered them. If anybody has a question that's not answered in this
    section then write me an e-mail (Top of File) with the Heading: HM
    Question (FAQ). It's that easy. Now onto the questions!!!
    Q: I Gave The Blue Feather to One Of The Girls But She Didn't Accept.
       What Am I Doing Wrong?
    A: Well, is her heart at red? Some televisions have screwed up colors
       and confuse orange with red. If not, then make sure you have the 2nd
       house extension.
    Q: I Love All The Girls! Can I Marry Them All?!
    A: Unfortunately, No. You have to pick one girl and marry her. Or if
       You don't want to pick one, don't pick any at all and flirt with all
       of them, when they're married.
    Q: I Heard That If You Don't Marry Anybody Aja Will Come Back In Year
       17 and Marry You, If You're Already Married She Will Marry Harris.
    A: No One Knows For Sure Whether This Is True, But Most Presumably It
       Is A Rumor, And is False.
    Q: After I Got Married and My Wife Prompted Me To Ask Her To Call Me
       By One Of The 3 Choices, I Picked One, And The Game went Black.
    A: You must have the PAL version of Harvest Moon. The Game always
       Freezes After You Marry Someone. Either Go Back To The Store and
       Demand A Refund, or Send Your Game to this Address, which I don't
       Know. You can ask somebody for it on the Harvest Moon Message Board
       if you'd like.
