Hehe ;) Yeah there's definitely a lot of luck with this one because I essentially did nothing different. But, it's still a fun event albeit a little frustrating with the opponents having minds of their own and not cooperating.

There must be some kind of strategy that I'm missing though, seeing so many people get the chess part done so quickly. 11 days till I can find out what it was lol!

I knew I could beat my practice score if the other sims cooperated a little better, thankfully they did, a bit anyway :P I know it's possible to shave even more time off and Chare has proved that, but those pesky sims don't seem to understand I'm in a hurry  ::)

Town Time: week 1 day 2 8:12 am
Vacation 1: day 3 9:35pm
Vacation 2: day 6 12:35pm

Total time: 13342

I really enjoyed this challenge as I love visiting China and most if not all of my sims learn Sim Fu so this was perfect.

Some bad luck with my opponents but not too bad with my score.

Town Time: Week 1, Day 7, 10:07 pm = 9487 minutes
Vacation Time: Day 3, 1:55 pm + Day 3, 8:35 pm + Day 3, 5:43 pm = 10,333 minutes

9487 + 10,333 = 19,820 minutes total

Oh my!!! These scores are intimidating me! I haven't started, but in my practice file my poor Sim lasted like 4 weeks at home to finish! Plus the 3 week vacation!

Oh well… I guess any score would be better than that one  :-\

I don't want to be an arse, but I'm getting a little antsy that my score isn't up. If it was just missed that's fine, but I'm all worried there's a problem that I don't know about O.O

Nope, just my almost-50-year-old brain forgetting. :) I am updating the leaderboard now.

Please resubmit your score and use the spreadsheet again. We do not need to know Saturday, Tuesday, etc, but when you mouse over the game clock it says Day 3, 4, 5 etc. That's the number that needs to go in the spreadsheet because the spreadsheet does not understand a day of the week.

Hi,

I asked a question to the team towards the end of last week via pm and don't seem to have an answer to it yet. I'm not trying to be impatient, and I know you are all busy with other things, but if I could get a response to it, that would be appreciated. I think I have my question saved in my outbox messages if you would like me to resend the question. I'm rather busy Friday/Saturday this week, and don't want to miss out on submitting a score. :)

Many thanks for your time and patience,

Dek

Question about your Day 6 vacation time.  Did you leave at the end of day 6?  That would be day 6 11:59pm.  Or did you leave right when day 6 starts (12am) when you still have a whole full day 6 left?

This was a fun one, I was nervous about needing to travel since you never know what will happen with it.

@rokrchik

Question about your Day 3, 12:00 am -- did you leave at the end of day 3?  Or did you leave at the beginning of day 3?  If you leave at the end of day 3, that's day 3 11:59pm.  Day 3 12:00am means you left right after day 2 ends.  Please let me know.

Same question on your Day 6, 12:00am
