Rival Heart Events

Gray and Mary’s black rival heart event | Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town
Gray and Mary’s black rival heart event

Each potential marriage candidate has their own rival heart events. Once you’ve viewed their orange heart event, they will marry your rival after seven days. You cannot view a rival heart event when the girl involved has a higher affection level for you.

For example, if you want to view Popuri and Kai’s green rival heart event, Popuri’s affection should be green or lower. If she has an orange or red heart, the rival heart event will not trigger.

Black Rival Heart Event

Date: Any day except Monday

Time: 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Blue Rival Heart Event

Location: Library

Date: Any day except Monday

Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Green Rival Heart Event

Location: Mother’s Hill

Date: Sunday, Tuesday, or Friday, must be in Year 2 or more

Time: 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM

Gray is reading Mary’s novel and is jealous that she is so good at writing, while he feels he’s not a good enough blacksmith. Mary encourages Gray to keep going and that if he really loves being a blacksmith, he will eventually improve automatically.

Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Note: Gray and Mary will get married seven days after viewing this event.
