Harvest Moon: Back to Nature Guides and Walkthroughs

Ann's Birthday: Summer 17th or Summer 22nd
Easy Affection: Spa-boiled Egg

Ann is the daughter of Doug, the guy who runs the Inn in town and is one of the five different girls that you're able to marry. Out of all the girls to marry, Ann has one of the most predictable and easy to memorize schedules; she barely ever leaves the Inn!

Your Rival if you choose to court Ann is Cliff. He typically is found inside of The Church moping about and he actually moves away from town if you don't ask him to help you at the Winery when you work there during the Fall of the first year. If you choose Cliff to work with you when the Winery asks for your help it'll greatly improve his mood and he'll stay in town for good.


Heart Levels

Below are all of the different Heart Levels you'll go through in Harvest Moon: Back to Nature. Each time you increase your Heart Level with a girl you'll be able to witness a unique event between you and her if you show up at the right place and at the right time. These events usually give you some text options when they occur, answering right will increase your affection with her, answering wrong will lower it. Try telling the girl what she wants to hear.

Black (0 - 4999 Affection)
Purple (5000 - 19999 Affection)
Blue (20000 - 29999 Affection)
Green (30000 - 39999 Affection)
Yellow (40000 - 49999 Affection)
Orange (50000 - 59999 Affection)
Red (60000 - 65535 Affection)


Tips for courting your Girl

- Talk to the girls at Festivals during the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter for a lot of +Affection! This works for regular villagers too!

- You can give a girl multiple gifts each day to raise her heart level rapidly.

- You can wrap gifts at the Supermarket and give them to girls for bonus affection points.

- Marry the girl you want before year 3 otherwise your rival can steal her away from you! You also have to watch all the rival heart events or they won't be able to marry too.

- Giving a girl a present on their birthday will give you a huge +Affection boost!
