Hey guys, I've been taking a break from the Tournament Challenge as life is pretty stressful right now, but I wanted to wish everyone good luck. :)

That's very nice of you, Rainbow Dash. Jump back in when life settles down for you. *sending you a big hug* :)

Aw, thanks @Metropolis Man  :) It's okay, I'm just dealing with a lot of big life changes right now, not all are bad, some are good and most could turn out to be good or bad tbh, it's just all a bit overwhelming, that's all. I'm not going to play in all the Tournament Challenges, just the ones I think I'll enjoy, I'm skipping this one because I don't want to deal with eight Sims at all at the same time, lol.  :P

Hi

I feel like this one was a bit of a chore, probably because I find managing 8 sims at once really annoying.  I'm glad I did it, but also glad it's over  :D

Sim 1  - Lvl 9
Sim 2 - Lvl 10 & Lvl 5
Sim 3 - Lvl 10
Sim 4 - Lvl 10 & Lvl 7
Sim 5 - Lvl 10 & Lvl 6
Sim 6 - Lvl 9
Sim 7 - Lvl 10
Sim 8 - Lvl 10 & Lvl 7

I think that works out at 69 points.

Can't wait to find out how Nikitachi did it, that score is amazing.

Hey all!  I just discovered these tournament challenges and decided to start this one.  I know I don't have a lot of time left, so hopefully I can finish in time.  I already have 2 whole points lol.

Welcome to the forum, @SarahSims . :) For what it's worth yours truly still needs to get his behind in gear and knock this one out too.

Not too much time left, folks, so if you have not started, this one is harder than most. You have until Sunday night to post a score. Good luck. :)

Again, I learned a lot - though much of that was "things not to do."

Sim 1:lvl 9, lvl9 > 12
Sim 2:lvl 8, lvl 10, lvl 5, lvl 5 >
14
Sim 3:lvl 9, lvl 10 >
14
Sim 4:lvl 9 >
6
Sim 5:lvl 6, lvl 8 >
6
Sim 6:lvl 9, lvl 8 > 10
Sim 7:lvl 9, lvl 6, lvl 10 >
14
Sim 8:lvl 10, lvl 7 >
11
Total: >
87

There was a lot of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.  But still fun.

Does the challenge end at midnight in our own time zone or a more specific time?

I'm planning to work on it until the end.
