1. Girls

   In harvest moon a wonderful life there’s a choice between three girls. They are 
Celia, Muffy, and Nina. Celia is the easiest one to get, Muffy is medium, and Nina 
is hard to get. To get Celia, give her flowers everyday and buy seeds from her 
occasionally. Celia’s diary is in her room under her bed. To get Muffy, give her 
flowers everyday or try to catch the rare fish Big Huchep. Muffy’s diary is in the 
colorful lamp in the far left corner in the blue bar. To get Nina, show your 
intelligence by giving her food you have grown or made. Nina’s diary is in her room 
at the inn by the window.
   Check the girl’s diary that you want to see how many hearts she has for you. You 
need at least 4 hearts to marry that girl. To marry a girl you need the blue 
feather or wait until the end of the first year when the girl that likes you most 
will marry you. You get the blue feather at the beginning of summer. Show the blue 
feather to the girl and she will take it. At the end of the year you will get 
married.

3. Van’s Shop

Things sold in the fist chapter:

Fishing Rod
Brush
Energy

Quick ways to make money:

1. Gather 99 fodders by chopping grass in your field using a sickle. Then sell it 
to Van for 10 Gold each. That’s 990 Gold!
2. Grow vegetables and then sell them for a profit.
3. Keep your cow and get two servings of milk a day from it. Or sell your cow and 
save up for a different colored one. The different colored cows give better milk!
4. Sell stuff you find on the ground. Hint: During fall go to the mountain next to 
the path to the digging site and you should find two plants that are worth 100 gold 
each.
5. Sell animals you no longer need or want.


4. Fish

(Remember to buy a fishing rod from Van’s shop quick.)

   The best place to get the rarest fish is under the waterfall. Eventually you 
will make a profit off of the fish you catch. The place I would say you would catch 
the most fish is on the bridge that goes across the river.


5. Extra Section

Hints:
1. If it’s raining go to the digging site and dig in one spot then come outside and 
it will stop raining.
2. Bet in the horse race. Remember what horse won the race then turn off the game 
without saving it. When the game starts up again bet again this time on the horse 
that one and bet the maximum limit. You will get a lot of money and medals.
