Animal Crossing: New Horizons players are waiting in lines for hours to get the best prices on the stalk market

Gotta make bank on those turnips, baby!

There are two types of players in Animal Crossing; those who play the stalk market and those who don't. For those who do, the dedication to finding the best prices for turnips is a full-time job. That's why thousands of players are spending countless hours traveling around to the islands of strangers who happen to have the best turnip buying prices.

Players are organizing online through social media to find the best places to visit for cashing in on the stalk market, which is causing virtual lines that can take hours to get through. It seems players don't mind waiting all that much though, as the there's a serious return on the investment. When you can crank out 2 million bells for playing the market right, a few hours in line doesn't seem so bad!

There's money to be made for those opening their gates to random players as well. If you happen to be in a spot where turnip prices are off the charts, you'll see a ton of virtual foot traffic. Some of those visitors end up leaving gifts, or even better, tips. One player left his game open online for 8 hours, and he walked away with over 2 million bells in tips alone!

Whether you're willing to play the turnip game or you have a hot spot for cashing in, there's plenty of bells to be made. You just need a little time and patience!


my nook shop has been busy ripping me off.. the price has gone down every day for 2 weeks now.. its down all the way to 17.. i have never seen it get this low in any other game before...

I have a feeling I will way too much time with this game when it arrives... Yikes.

Weird. I sold on Tuesday in a town whose price was 500+ and I waited in queue for less than 15 minutes. I would not wait hours when there are so many options to find places with high prices (GameFAQs, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Discord, etc.)
