How To Meet Snowboy
Appears When Snow Piles Up
You can meet Snowboy by combining two large snowballs together on a snowy day. Note that snowballs won't appear if your island is not covered in snow! You can only do this once per day.
|Time||North Hemisphere: 12/11 ~ 2/24|
South Hemisphere: 6/11 ~ 8/24
|Conditions||Combine two snowballs on your island|
|Frequency||Once per day|
Roll The Snowball To Make It Larger
In order to encounter Snowboy, you'll need to roll a snowball on top of the snow to make it larger.
Snowball Breaks When It Hits Obstacles
Carefully roll the snowball so that it won't hit any obstacles. If the snowball hits a tree or falls in the water, you'll have to find new snowball and roll again. In order to make new snowballs spawn, enter and exit a building.
Watch Out For Dung Beetles
Dung Beetles will sometimes spawn under/near Snowballs. They might push or even break the snowball, so make sure to leave both balls where you can see them at all times.
Combine Two Snowballs
Roll 2 snowballs to a large size and combine them together to make Snowboy. In order to get rewards from Snowboy, you need to make two snowballs the perfect size. Read the section below on how to make the perfect Snowboy.
The Snowball You're Pushing Becomes The Head
The snowball which you are pushing when the two collide will become the head of Snowboy, so be careful - don't accidentally put the body piece on top!
Snowboy Will Melt In Few Days
Sadly, Snowboy will melt in about 3 days. If you made a perfect Snowboy, he will give you a new Large Snowflake once a day until he melts away.
How To Make A Perfect Snowboy
First Snowboy Is Always Perfect
The very first time you put together a Snowboy, you'll get a perfect rating on it regardless of the size of the snowballs. You'll also get a recipe.
Need To Make At Least 15
There are a total of 15 recipes you can get from Snowboy. If you want to get all of them, you'll need to make a perfect Snowboy at least 15 times!
Make 2 Snowballs' Size Perfect
In order to make a perfect Snowboy and get a reward from him, you'll need to make the two snowballs' sizes just right. The head should always be slightly smaller and the body should be the maximum size possible. Refer to the size of the snowballs above.
How Do You Know If The Snowball Is Max Size?
When you successfully make a maximum size snowball, your character will slow down when you start to push the snowball!
Balls Get Smaller When There's No Snow
If you overdo the rolling and make your snowball too big, rolling it over places with no snow will make it smaller! The plaza in your town is a good place to do this.
You Can Make More Than 1 Snowboy
If you made an imperfect Snowboy by accident, you can try again on the next day and make another Snowboy. Note that more than 1 Snowboy can exist on your island.
Reward You Can Get From Snowboy
DIY Recipe & Large Snowflake
