Players are able to switch out who is the Leader, which is the person doing the main activities (crafting, building, talking with villagers, etc.) The other player(s) will be able to collect items and shake trees, but any items they collect will be put in the recycling bin for players to collect afterwards. If any player shakes a wasp nest out of a tree, the wasps will always go after the leader. Whenever the follower(s) get too far away from the leader (or vice versa) the follower(s) will teleport to the leader. This will also happen if the leader goes through a door. There is only one leader, though the leader can switch with another player of their choice. Party play can not be activated during a nook miles tour or the May day maze.
