After answering the question, Timmy says that it was a hypothetical question, implying that it didn't mean anything.

Having played the game and compared the results based on the results of the question, it doesn't seem to have affected anything. If you found a difference based on the results of this question, be sure to share in the comments!

When You Will Be Asked

What to Bring.jpg

At the start of the game

As soon as you start the game, you'll be asked a variety of questions by Timmy. The very last question he asks will be about what you would bring to a deserted island.

However, it seems that Timmy is simply interested in hearing what the player would say, and it doesn't have anything to do with the player's actual situation of going to a deserted island. This can be chalked up to the game's unique sense of humor.

Only the first player of the game can answer

The only player who will encounter this question is the one who first comes to the island. If you're planning to play this game with two or more players, keep in mind that the other players won't have a chance to answer the question.

I rerolled 9 times and chose sleeping bag each time - I didn't pay attention to what villagers I got (I ended up with Canberra and Axel), but no trends as far as fruit/airport colors go (in 9 re-rolls I saw all the fruits and all 4 airport colors represented - ended up with oranges/green)

I think they might add something later on based on what answer you picked. In new leaf, the answers you gave in the train when first visiting your city also affected the way your character looked like.
