Why Cooking In Animal Crossing New Horizons Is Such A Big Deal

Animal Crossing Fans were excited after seeing the recent Animal Crossing New Horizons direct for the 2.0 update. However, all felt like something was missing…Mini-games. Just like they originally had on Tortimer’s island in Animal Crossing New Leaf. However, Animal Crossing New Leaf was the only Animal Crossing game in the series to have this, so…do we really need it? Of course, we do, but whether we need it immediately is another question altogether.

The cooking available in the Animal Crossing 2.0 update is bound to make lots of entertainment…Mini-game worthy entertainment!

Here are5 different activities you can do with the new Animal Crossing New Horizons Cooking feature!

 

1. Bake-Off

This is an obvious one. However, it seems like a fun time with friends or just people online, just like many had been having their own virtual fashion shows and music shows, they can have a bake-off too. Here’s how it would work.

How to Play & Rules

The aim of the game is to make a 3-course meal. Everyone will be required to make a 3-course ‘meal’, savoury or sweet with the resources they bring with them and with the DIY recipes they have available. They will then be judged on performance, explanation of their dish and of course the dish itself.

  • A creative explanation of their dish, performance and the end result will increase or decrease points depending on how well they do. The player will be scored out of 10.
  • Performance-wise, they can choose to match outfits colours or custom designs with their desired dish or use emotions to convey the ‘personality’ of their food.
  • They can NOT prepare the dish beforehand, that will be a penalty.
  • They can NOT bad mouth other players’ dishes (unless they are the notorious Gordon Ramsey).
  • They have exactly 1 (or 1 minute & 30 seconds) to cook and present PER dish!

This will be a fun weekly activity and can be played with local multiplayer or online.  There can even be themed dishes, vegetarian, sea-food dishes etc.

 

2. Grab What You Can

(I’m really trying to think of creative names here but it’s not working out…Anyway).

How to Play & Rules

The aim of the game is to grab all the ingredients you can within the set time 10, 20 or 30 seconds. However, it is by impulse and you can’t look at your DIY recipes to see what you need to cook. They will then be judged on performance, explanation of their dish and of course the dish itself.

This will be completely spontaneous, which means…if you don’t get grab enough to make yourself flexible enough to create a dish…well then, that’s just too bad! (Don’t worry you can help judge though!)

  • You MUST stick within the set timer!
  • You MUST NOT carry extra ingredients with you!
  • You MUST NOT peek at your DIY recipes, remembering by memory is fine.
  • If you do any of the above, that is a penalty.
  • You can either set everyone to grab what they want at once or use a spinning wheel and determine who gets first choice by the largest-smallest number.

This will be great to get the adrenaline going and will be a nice surprise for anyone playing.

 

3. Mystery Grab Bags

(They just keep getting harder…)

How to Play & Rules

This one is similar to the second mini-game, however the host will have to place all the ingredients in wrapping paper. The aim of the game is to grab 5 mystery bags, that will contain the ingredients. The set time to grab these mystery bags can range between 10, 20 to 30 seconds.

  • You MUST stick within the set timer!
  • You MUST NOT carry extra ingredients with you!
  • You MUST NOT open the mystery bags or wrap them back up.
  • If you do any of the above, that is a penalty.
  • You can either set everyone to grab what they want at once or use a spinning wheel and determine who gets first choice by the largest-smallest number.
