My ghost hunter sim made 30,953 simoleons and scored 36 in bingos. 30,953 x 1.36 = 42,096.

Thank you Nutella for catching my mistake!

Genevieve-

My calculation came up with 42,396 (30722 x 1.38).  Can you check your records?

Well, I've finished this one nice and early, and I made sure I read and re-read the rules.

Mr Red Shirt had household funds of 42155 and his bingos reached 57, resulting in 42155 x 1.57 = 66183.

I am happy enough with that effort.

I just couldn't help myself, Spirit Hunter and I completed this today. Funds were 48,539 with 72 bingo points. 48,539 x 1.72 =  83,487, I think. Luck and practice runs helped, especially luck.

Thank you for that! I did it on a really bad insomniac streak, so I'm not surprised I got it wrong. Embarrassing.....

I really enjoyed this challenge, I think all future ghost hunters I play shall have bingo cards.

My sim managed 53,497 in funds and 81 bingos.

53497 x 1.81 = 96829

Hey! Question: the "household funds " is what you see when you go to buy/build mode, right?

I took household funds to mean the number that always shows at the bottom of the screen. If I'm wrong, let me know.

Correct.  Here is a picture from my dynasty as an example, look at the bottom left hand corner and you will see the funds ($64,270), its in live mode - that is your household funds.  The funds should be the same even if you go into buy/build mode.

What confused me a bit was that my Sim got the wish "be worth more than $20,000" and it said -inside the wish- that she has 12 thousand something out of those 20 thousand, but if I looked at the lower left corner of the screen, it showed 6 thousand something; so where does that difference come from?

-Just in case: all this from my practice file.

Worth includes your home and whatever you have bought.  Your 6 thousand something is cash in hand (household funds), but the worth is the game adding up all things you owned (like your home, bed, shower, etc.)

So for my first challenge I didn't score very high but I'm happy I completed it and made an effort even if I should have practiced first :)  My funds were 11,360 with 7 total bingos so

11,360*1.07 = 12,155

If your Sim gets abducted by aliens, and is a dude... and gets alien impregnated... can we still play through and just give up the baby when it's born or is it game over?   I don't know if my guy is pregnant or not yet.. but he was snatch while doing a poltergeist job.  Never seen the aliens take someone not on their home lot like that, LOL

Edit - Turns out he was not alien pregnant but still curious even with other challenges if it's ok to just make sure and give up the baby upon birth when there is a no adding to the family rule.

Give up baby when it's born and continue playing.  Good luck.

Does anybody know if men get any maternity leave whilst pregnant with alien babies? I have only ever had one in a baby boomer challenge of all things and cannot recall.

I don't think they get paternity leave as the weight gain remains unexplained. I haven't played with Seasons installed for a while now, but I don't recall any leave.

On scoring the Bingo ... are we scoring each ghost or just the bingo combo.. so if you had 3 across, Young Kind, Old Kind and Ancient Kind do you count that as 3 pts (for the combo) or 9 pts (3 pts for each Kind Ghost in that row)??

Three points for the combo across. It can be used also for going down if you get all seven spirits for it.

Funds: 69,125
Bingos: 75

Total: 120,968.75

Do I round or drop the decimals?
And I just edited it because I realized in english you use points and commas differently for numbers, my bad.
