Nothing has ever hit the scene quite like Animal Crossing: New Horizons has hit it these past few weeks. This is a game of legends. This is a game of powerful creature comforts. This is a game that will run out there and hit you right where you need it to hit, and the truth is we need it to hit us in just the right spot for us to be able to find the joy and the happiness where it needs to be. This is the secret power found in any game, and it is especially the source of the mysticism hidden within the powerhouse known as Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

That’s why we are all looking to it now to try and find ourselves a game that is both worth playing and worth devoting our times to playing. One might suggest that the real reason we are obsessed with this classic is because of the recent Coronavirus pandemic, but this is mistaken. The beauty of the game and of the Coronavirus pandemic are one and the same. Opportunity echoes from history and not the other way around.

Anyway, as it turns out the folks we are in love with this wild, wild game is all playing it because they are obsessed with the power it gives them. And one way to increase that power is to play a game within a game, and that’s precisely what happened here. Keep reading below to find out much more about this very interesting topic.

You might be able to see it for yourself. The folks who inhabit these virtual worlds have managed to turn them into their own veritable playgrounds: They have arranged a series of chairs in a circle, assembled themselves around this circle, and have let the tunes play while dancing about in a circle.

As soon as the music stops, the players rush to grab a seat, and after each pass of the sonorous music, someone–a person we shall leave unnamed for now–rushes in to remove one of these chairs. This, of course, means that someone is going to be left without a chair after the music ends up stopping. This single person, chairless and left destitute, is kicked out of the game.

That is the primordial and protean nature of musical chairs. But within the universe of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, this game is played for bells. And the more bells you win, the less you have to live in debt slavery to the fool named Tom Nook.
