Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese act that was introduced into gaming through Animal Crossing. Feng Shui can change your luck and fortune by arranging certain items at certain points in your home.
Feng Shui in Animal Crossing
First introduced in Animal Crossing, Feng Shui gives you the ability to determine your luck and fortunes. By placing an item at a certain position, north, south, east, west you can increase either your money, items, or both. With your starting house you are given 16 spaces to use for Feng Shui. The northern, southern, and western eight spaces increase both your money and items. The eastern eight spaces increase just your money. After the second expansion your first floor the northern, western, and southern twelve spaces will increase both money and items. The eastern twelve spaces will increase your money. After your third and final expansion on your first floor you will have sixteen spaces (40 in all) on the northern, western, and southern sides to increase both items and money. And sixteen spaces in all for just money are on the eastern side. Orange items on the north increase money and luck, as well as yellow items on the west side, and green items on the south. While just red items on the east side will increase your money. Feng Shui has an effect in all three floors of your home, including the basement and the second floor. The second floor goes with the first expansion guidelines, while the basement goes with the second expansion guidelines. There are twenty items that will increase your Feng Shui no matter where you place them in your home.

Feng Shui in Animal Crossing Wild World
Unlike in the original Feng Shui has an effect on your Happy Room Academy score. And it also has an effect on your luck with finding items and fortunes as you progress in Animal Crossing Wild World. Orange items no longer exist in Animal Crossing, and placing an item that was considered an orange item in Animal Crossing in your home in Animal Crossing Wild World will not have an effect on your Feng Shui. As well as that, the amount of tiles you have to work with for your Feng Shui have been decreased. There are only eight tiles for green on the south, red on the east, and yellow on the west. With the second expansion comes twelve spaces for your to work with, all with the same amount as the first expansion. And the third expansion increases to sixteen spaces, with fourty spaces in all. The final numbers are no different than from Animal Crossing, for the fact that the amount of tiles was increased per color with the deduction of colors per space and the elimination of orange items. As with Animal Crossing, there are special items that will be viewed as Feng Shui regardless of where they're placed in your room. However there are now twenty four items that can be used instead of regular color-coordinated Feng Shui items.
