Social Invitation InvitationEdit

Occasionally, first thing in the morning, the player may leave their house to find Tody outside, hoping to invite the player out for a date or play date.

Social play PlayEdit

Once the player has become buddies with Tody, they can schedule a play date together.

Social date DateEdit

After the player has successfully confessed how they feel to Tody, the player can schedule a romantic date with Tody.

If the player chooses to dine at The Round Table with Tody during a play date or date, it is recommended to order dishes Tody will like. If asked before ordering, Tody will sometimes tell the player exactly which dishes to order; other times, Tody will just give little hints. In the event that Tody does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Tody gives. It is recommended to order each of those dishes from different courses, ex. ordering one Appetizer, Meat, Vegetable, Dessert, and Drink course each, rather than five Desserts.

Tody's food preferences are:

Play date eat Dining
Prompt happy
Prompt sad
Menu icon appetizer
Menu icon main course

Menu icon meat
Menu icon vegetable

Exceptions: Tody feels neutral about Spicy Fish Soup because it is both Fish and Sea Food and Spicy Food.

Social interact InteractEdit

As the player develops their relationship with Tody, special interactions are unlocked, including Hug and Kiss.

Social Relic Trade Relic TradeEdit

Tody occasionally uses the Relic Pieces Exchange board at the Museum to trade for relic pieces. Tody likes to look at particular completed relics, so after the player has donated such relics to the Museum or displayed them in their yard, Tody may come visit the Museum or the player's yard to view these relics. Such visits will earn the player relationship points each time, with the amount dependent upon the relic.
