I was able to squeeze in a lot of playing this week, but I don’t have much blog-worthy stuff to show for it. I buckled down on the collecting portion of the Crazy 8s challenge. I finally found that pesky Trilobite beetle, made a Soulpeace gem skull, read all the books, etc.
Fun for me; maybe not so fun for you.
Let’s see, what else. Zardoz learned that, in addition to all his helpful skills, the Stephen Colbert lookalike Butler is also a handy source of fresh blood!
And Wilma learned that the Butler will listen to you chatter on indefinitely. (Which is handy when your Social need is in the red, due to spending all your time being made to dash all over town hunting beetles and what not.)
(Please note the butler’s monocle. The game gave him that – not me.)
When Wilma grew into a young lady, the game gave her the female version of her dad’s pimp coat. It’s just as fabulous!
I chose a money-related Lifetime Wish, which was fulfilled pretty quickly. And look! I actually got a screenshot!
But despite having half a million Simoleons in the bank, you still have to drive around to a lot of dubious neighborhoods and pick up your own rocks.
Then take them home and use the Carter XL display to transform things into other, more expensive things. So that you can tuck them into your special treasure chest, and scratch it off your list.
At some point I got a little tired of all the collecting, and decided to work on a different part of the challenge: complete 8 Adventures in the other worlds. For an Adventure, you find a local person who is willing to hire you to do stupid stuff.
“You want me to keep sticking my hands into holes in the ground until I find a baseball in a secret crypt. I see.”
“There better be a baseball in here!” (There wasn’t.)
On the up side, I learned that you can sleep in the fancy French museum.
Assuming you can sleep over all the racket that LOUD carpet is making, anyway!
Along the way, Wilma found some treasure in what appears to be an abandoned glowing refrigerator.
And was stymied by that impenetrable barrier, Velvet Ropes Clipped To Poles. (Curses!)
