I have a sibling who lives on the opposite coast, and would like nothing more for their birthday/xmas (Dec 24 birthdays suck ;) than some simple gift cards, etc. I've always hated giving a simple card, and I know she enjoys Animal Crossing, so I've hit upon the idea of burying her "gift" - i.e. an in-game letter with a redemption code on it - somewhere in my town. Not being an AC expert, I need to know the following:
- if my 3DS is left running in AC:NL, and my sister is on my friends list, can she enter my town without any interaction on my end?
- can strangers enter my town while I leave it running, potentially digging up said treasures? :)
- can you bury letters? Are they persistent? maybe I'll lead her on a merry chase around town or something
- is this a disaster waiting to happen because i am missing some vital information??
