Sprinter's Shoal :" Skip: "
Treasure Knight 'n his Iron Whale infest these waters. Ain't seen a decent catch in months. This Heirloom is the last trinket I've got to my name. Please, would ya' bail me out?

When talked to again at the
Glidewing :" Skip: You look the wagerin' type. Shall we drop anchor and play some "
:" Skip: I'm quite the card shark. You'll fall for my strategy.... hook, line, and sinker!"
In the 3DS version of the other campaigns, there is no NPC that fills in the same role of Play Coin trader as Skip, making this exchange feature unique to Shovel of Hope and unique to him.
Skip was only properly named in King of Cards, going instead under the generic name of "Fisherman" in Shovel of Hope.
