I've added this under General Rules on the first page:

• All children that result from abduction pregnancies (aliens) must be returned to their homeworld and cannot become a part of the household.

New rule added (07/17/2014):

Drones requirements for leaving the hive:
Must have maxed one skill** (overlap is fine).
**Simbots would need to max a skill other than handiness and inventing

Thank you callycat for letting us know about the skill advantages of simbots.  Is there any other lifestate that have skill level advantages we haven't covered?  We've got mermaids and simbots so far.

I checked the Mummy elixir and there were no skill gains from it. Looks like that's it now.

Sketches and paintings are both included in the list of potential collection items.  Does that mean that a collection of sketches is considered different than a collection of paintings?

Would it be considered stockpiling to have 10 best friends before the first RD with the intention of never using 9 of them for an RD? Also, could the queen use them for an RD?

Can you have 'shared' lifetime rewards? Example: having a midlife crisis for the king and queen every RD to help with requirements and never using Midlife Crisis for an RD?(Hope that makes sense)

Yes, it would be stockpiling. Intent really isn't the issue.

Also, could the queen use them for an RD?

The king and queen both need a unique friend not on the family tree for each RD so I am not sure what you are asking.

The king and queen can definitely purchase the same LTR at any time — obviously ones they both have cannot count towards the unique reward requirement.

Lvrugger that's is not going to work out, if you look at this rule

 Jobs must be acquired after drone has become a YA

Does this mean that you cannot have more than 1 BF per romantic day at all, thus ruling out the BF challenge in Charisma? What happens if one of the founders accidentally become best friends with someone through work events or something else outside of their control?

I've made about 7 best friends already on purpose to fill that charisma challenge, so I'm no longer doing my dynasty for HOF. I suppose potentially you could use that challenge on the 10th RD, if that makes sense. If you've already learned any charisma, you would have to, otherwise you would be stockpiling.

It's pretty impossible not to have more than one best friend at a time when time you have a rabbithole job. I think this will disqualify us all from HoF, but I don't understand how it's stockpiling if you make a new unique BF for each RD.

I asked sometime ago if it was all right to have more than one best friend before a Reproductive Day as long as you never used that second best friend and was told that was okay. I wouldn't give up on HoF yet.

That was my understanding as well. Metro's answer above seems contradictory though.

Okay, my apologies, guys. Sometimes I get confused myself at interpretations hehe. Yes, you are free to get more than one BF before any RD — it is NOT stockpiling as long as you get one unique BF in between RD so you're actually doing the work for the requirement if that makes sense. Sorry again.
