I am pretty sure there's a topic about this around here somewhere, I just can't remember where it is...

How do you play the school game on the v4? For say, Mr. Turtle... hoe do you know where the pencil is? (or is it a complete guess?)


... I'm getting really tired of poop dropped on my head! :tama4:



thanks to anyone who can answer or redirect me with a link...

I'm not sure if there is a topic about it. I think I may have read a description of it in someones log, but that was a long time ago.

But here's how you win at find the pencil/sparkle/flower.


The teacher will always put the item in the box on the right hand side.

Then the boxes will start flashing two at a time. If the box with the item in flashes it means it has swapped places with the other flashing one, If it doesn't flash first then it stays in the same place. So you have to watch which two boxes 'flash' to see where the item has moved to each time. When the boxes stop flashing the tama will always move to the middle position, so you have to use the 'A' button to move it to where you want it to stand (under the item- not the poo!) and then use 'B' to select that box.

I made a small video of this the other day- it's a bit shaky as I was holding the camera with one hand and using a pen to point with in the other.

Just some notes about the built-in school game:
  • The prize is 3 skill points per win / 0 points per lose.
  • Points from only first 10 games per day are accumulated (maximum 30 points per day). To explain: if you win only 7 out of the first 10 games you play this morning, you will get 21 points. Even if you win the game again today, you won't get more points.
  • Playing / winning has no effect on weight.
  • Playing / winning has no effect on happy hearts.

Hmm.. Spudi explained it really well. It's essentially 3-Card Monte. Your teacher has one icon and two poops, and mixes them around and asks you to find the icon. The teacher shows you where it starts--on the right. The the teacher wraps them in presents and swaps them. The key, as Spudi says, is the flashing. When two presents flash, they are switching places. So if A and C flash, that means the item that was in the A spot is now in the C spot, and vice versa.

When I play, I always point to the right present with my fingernail. Whenever it moves, I move my finger to its current spot. That helps me keep track.

Anyway, then you move your Tama using the A button so that he or she is right under the correct present, and click B.

Wow, thanks, Spudi! Once I thought I had sort of figured out the way the game was played, but then I turned out to be wrong, so I've just been guessing. Heheh.

I don''t get it but the next time I try it I'll make sure I have a nice written document of what happened and then you can tell me what I did right or what I did wrong.

I believe the mailman has to bring you a notice first. It's the [!] looking icon. And then right after your teacher comes to visit. Then you can go to preschool. ^_^

I always thought the right one was the one that didn't flash o.o
So far, I have never got a poop on my head.
Oh well, thanks for the great tip!
