So, I got my European release of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, today, and it came with one of the series 1 3-packs and one extra special amiibo card. The thing is, I'm slightly worried about the existence and use of these cards~

How necessary are they to enjoy the game? Are they required so that you can design homes in the game for characters? Are they just a faster way of getting a certain character? Do you really need to collect all 400 to get full use out of the game? These are some of the questions I'm pondering, now.

The cards I got, incidentally, are two SP ones (Sable and DJ K.K.) and two normal ones (Lionel and Opal). Considering that here the minimum cost for a random 3-pack is 6 euros, thinking of how many you might have to buy to get them all and the fact there's 4 series, each with 100 cards.. You could end up spending a fortune on these things.

...Did I just buy a money sink?

Like all amiibos, they're not region locked.

That's a relief - maybe I can avoid falling in the moneytrap, then!

That seems a bit unfair, indeed. To make matters worse, the 6 euro version is only sold in one chain, rest of them price the 3 packs at 9 euros or therabouts. I wonder if these are supposed to be like trading cards, though.

I saw a binder for them on sale somewhere, so they'll probably be easiest to collect with those? Not sure, really.. I probably won't collect them too much, if they're not required for the game :P. Might buy a few now and then from each set.

When you say NPC, which ones do you mean? The SP ones do indeed seem to only appear on the cards. I have no idea if they're region locked, I'll have to look into that - if they're not, buying the US version WOULD be much cheaper, though!

The only cards that matter are the NPC/SP ones - everyone else apparently cycles through the game.
If cards aren't region locked (idk i dont have them), I'd suggest buying the American ones. Or the Japanese ones, whatever. The 3 cards Euros get is a rip off.

I bought two packs recently while I was out looking for more amiibo because "lol I collect amiibo, why not". Opened the packs, got no doubles, though they were kinda cute.

Big mistake; I'm planning on casually collecting them now LOL and maybe getting the game to justify buying the cards;;;;

After playing the game a little bit, I don't believe the cards are important. You're right, all they do is just give you a certain character faster and let you invite villagers over to another character's home after it's been designed (they don't talk when they visit, they just whistle and wave hello).

Personally, I don't think I'll buy anymore cards considering that they're not that important and they're going to be so many in the future. Also, I only want one specific villager (Marshal) and since he's not in this first series, I might just wait and trade.

Also, I'm confused by how the cards are being distributed around the world. In the US we get 6 cards for 6 USD. It's seem very unfair that you're paying 6 euros for a 3-pack.

from what i know, the villager cards aren't necessary; in my game i already have designed homes for villagers that have cards - so in that respect, yes, it's more just a way to get the villagers you want faster... though there might be a cap on the villagers that show up naturally in game?

however for the special characters i've yet to see them come to me as clients (aside from lottie in the tutorial) so the amiibo cards are most likely the only way to design their homes.
