Item Matching

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki

Item Matching is an Island Tour mini-game, hosted by Tortimer on the Island in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

In the mini-game, pairs of items are buried in the ground. Players dig up an item, then have to dig up the matching item. Digging up matching items results in the items being removed from the ground; otherwise, they are buried again.
