Oh my goodness I made it! At some points I was literally only able to play for 5 minutes at a time before needing breaks. Wow, I appreciate my 1 real toddler now so much more!

The Neverland family survived 18 little ones!

The Toddler's (very imaginative name) ended with 9 toddlers.  I learned a lot about toddlers with this challenge.  By the end, I was fully ready to be done, and can't even imagine trying to do this one again!

Jemma and Leo Fitz-Simmons had the worst luck in the Sim Diaspora. Leo died on Day 6 and Jemma, in her grief, set the lot on fire. From that point on, it was a race to see which would happen first: the Social Worker coming because no one's needs got met while the fire was raging or if Jemma would die in the fire that she watched burn for two SimDays.

The Social Worker won.  :(

The three kids they did manage to raise scored the following:

Alpha (1350 TS, 7 SP), Beta (1250 TS, 7 SP), and Gamma (1000 TS, 7 SP) for a total of 4320.

I can't wait to read everyone's strategy. I apparently had the anti-strategy. My practices went really well though. I guess the game was saving all the fun for the real event!

@xyliajames -- I am entering 4356 for you on the leaderboard. TS = 3600. Your multiplier = 21 skill points = 1.21. 3600 X 1.21 = 4356.

@Metropolis Man, thanks. Numbers and I do not get along. I have dyscalculia and that part of the game is tough for me. Iím glad you are double-checking.

@xyliajames Next time you participate take a look at the spreadsheets i make. They will always calculate the score you have so you do not have to worry about that part :)

@LenaLJ, thanks, I will. I thought this one would be easy enough to keep up with on paper but obviously not. I save screenshots of all the numbers, though, and if I ever get close to the top of the board (after years of challenge practices, of course!), Iíll probably ask if I can forward those to the mod team so you guys can double-check that I havenít written anything down wrong which might have inflated my score.

This challenge was super-fun while it lasted and I canít wait till the next one. Iíve wanted to see inside a lot of those houses for a while now but Iíve never had it work out that way in my stories.

Well, I am blown away by the scores some people are managing.  Fair to say toddlers and me are not really a perfect fit, but I really did try. I am afraid my score is very limited a total of 4,125 toddler satisfaction multiplied by 1.4 = 5,775 total.  Good luck to those of you still going. Take care.

If I don't go crazy after this week I will treat myself to a(nother) bottle of wine   ::)
I am half way through my scoring file, flying on Friday morning for a well deserved vacation (not returning before the challenge end) and working till 10-11 pm every day :)))
Struggling to wrap all work, luggage + the scoring file till tomorrow evening so wish me luck  ;D

I look forward to read how everyone kept their sanity (if they managed to keep it) while the toddlers ran the house my secret was red wine but it starts to not work anymore 

Cheers,

I'm halfway through too.  Maybe I need to have some wine myself to get motivated.  ;D

Stop "whining" both of you! Oh, that was terrible. *groans* I promise I'll put a cork in it.

Some excellent scores in this challenge  :). Not sure i'll be joining the world ranking with this one. Too many job interviews, barely spent 3 hours in SimLand since the last challenge. Haven't even had the chance to download and enjoy laundry or jungle adventures :( (plays world's smallest violin for me  ::)) Thought i could get started yesterday and then ended up with 2 interviews today...

I hope you will be able to get in and play this one out!  Our strategies are always a lot alike, so I really like to hear what you think of that I didn't.  This one gave me fits in practice.  I finally just had to accept what I couldn't control and move on.  :D

I also wish you well in your interviews - I have been going through those as well.  It's great to have a lot of opportunities, but it's grueling to be constantly interviewing.  I recently got an offer from a company I've had my eye on for awhile, so it's a job I really wanted.  Just waiting for the background check to finalize and then get a start date.  I hope your interviews go well and that you also land where you really want to be!

Thanks @GlazeyLady. I have a strategy that i think would get me a high score (from the practice i did) that i will post anyway, even if i cannot get to play (another interview tomorrow and a 4 hour with tests and presentation Monday). I don't mind interviews but so far its been 2-4 interviews per job (its a bit like doing The Apprentice) and Monday's is round 3(hopefully final round) of a job i really want so i think i should prep and not play, as much as i love my Sims :p

You can just get the mail when the adult is allowed to pay the bills.

But would you be able to use whats in the mail if it goes straight into the adults inventory? Wouldn't this be "controlling" the adult?

Well, I see getting the mail and using something that came in the mail as different. Team thoughts?

Of course you don't have to get the mail at all -  You can use the phone or computer to pay the bills without ever actually getting the mail.
