Do you guys carry your 3DS's around? Collecting StreetPasses for the Mii Plaza? I get a ton during a regular school day, but now that it's summer the passes are less common. But! Today I actually managed to collect all the puzzle pieces that are currently available (1113 pieces)! Any luck in random places for you? When I went to Florida I StreetPassed a ton of people, most weren't actually from Florida though, half of them were from other countries, like Japan and France, so that was neat.

sometimes i carry mine around! i get a lot of street passes riding on the train and walking around campus. during the summer it's harder, but i stay at my girlfriend's house pretty often. she has a 3ds, and so do her two sisters, so i can always pass with them. aside from that, i make sure to bring my 3ds with me when i go to conventions. literally everyone who goes brings their 3ds with them, so the street passes don't stop flooding in. it's more than i can keep up with, honestly.

congrats on getting all of the pieces, by the way! until there is a new puzzle, of course.

What exactly are street passes? I don't own a 3DS and I've never heard of it. :P

In Sleep Mode, your 3DS can exchange information with nearby other 3DS systems, including their Mii name, your location (state, country) and the their message to send to you, along with a little more. It's pretty neat, seeing who you passed by.
