Yeah, I've watched animals fall into the Pitfalls before (and have even fallen into a couple myself); but I wasn't sure if there was any other purpose aside from just being mean.
That's pretty interesting about the DUMMY, I received one from an igloo resident a while back and it was just a plain white triangle with Japanese lettering on it. At least I know not to risk 3000 Bells trying to get one again.
Well, my little time-traveler jumped from Sale Day to Sale Day on Sunday night and I finally got ahold of the Red Corner and the Judge's Bell (along with the Wide-Screen TV and the Super Toilet). So I finally completed the Boxing Theme, but for some reason the HRA is docking me about 12,000 points in my home design. I'm a little stymied as to what's wrong.
I have the Boxing Theme on the first floor of course, and the complete Nintendo Set and the Lucky Nintendo set on the second floor (the Playroom wall and carpet are on the second floor also). The only reason I think I might have been docked so many points is for having too many unrelated special items in both floors (both fishing trophies, the spring medal, a dracaena, fireplace, snowboard, samurai suit, etc.); but I thought those items were supposed to boost your score not get you penalized.
Right now, I will try to figure this our systematically. I've removed anything not related to the Boxing Theme or Nintendo Sets from both floors and I will see how the HRA scores me. Then I will add stuff back in little by little to see where the problem might be.
Any suggestions from the more experienced players here would be greatly appreciated.
