Dang, missed the last event. Been so busy earning platinum trophies that I forgot how fast these tournaments go.  :(

Is there still time to join this challenge? It looks right up my alley, all I have to do is get as many collections as possible before my collector's life is about to end from old age, right? :)

Can I do a test file first? It's been a while since I've played The Sims 4 and I need to do some research.

Hi, @MystiKitty -- there is quite a bit of time left for you to knock out this Finale, a full month. So, go for it and good luck. And yes, you can definitely do testing before your official file begins.

My sim completed 8 collections, 2 full aspirations and 3 parts of another for a score of 1240.  Really enjoyed this one and completed some collections that I've never managed before.

Okay, the way the rules were originally laid down we had lots of questions about adding to the household -- can I add pets? What about adding Sims? So, the team needs to clarify things:

Adding pets in CAS is fine.
But, no adding Sims. You still only create one Sim and that's it.
@Nomac -- ignore my PM to you earlier.

Oooooh, you are brilliant! That didn't even occur to me!
I'd been busy trying to finish my legacy but I'm going to get stuck, no doubt, with 3 new careers in my 9th generation.

What's a dynasty challenge?

What's a dynasty challenge?

Every year, the Challenges Team creates a new multi-generational dynasty challenge that lasts until certain requirements are met.
To continue and ultimately complete the challenge, the founder(s) and their heirs must achieve specific goals.
So far, there's been an Immortal Dynasty Challenge (2014), Rival Dynasties Challenge (2015), 10-Gen Townies Challenge (2016), How Many Life States in Your World? Challenge (2017).
I'm sure a member of the Challenges Team can provide a more thrilling explanation, lol.
A new challenge is announced yearly in November. Here's a link to the rules for the challenges I've just listed.

Thank you @sdhoey and @oshizu.  I think I've seen some of the stories in the the stories forum but never really connected them with  proper challenges.  Can I still do the old ones or are they closed now?

You can still do them anytime. There are no close dates for those. Those are different from the Tournament Challenges.

Thank you.  I have to say they look a bit daunting, but I'm always looking for ways to keep me interested in one family for more than a couple of generations.  I'll definitely think about giving them a go.

My sim Carmen Collector completed 9 collection, 3 aspirations, and 3 parts of a fourth aspiration.  So my score is:
900 x 1.75 = 1,575

I had a ton of fun with this challenge; can't wait to see the new dynasty challenge and what awaits the tournaments next year!

PS: I have my screenshot ready to go for 12/2  :)

Where do I go if I want to join your Challenges team? I am great for coming up with ideas for Sims 4 challenges but lousy when actually playing them because I can't get over playing without needs cheats. I even came up with an idea for a variant of the Apocalypse which addresses the issues of the fact that you play in a city that isn't destroyed(since it's impossible to create a post-apocalyptic world in The Sims 4 due to the way it's set up) called the Pizzapocalypse, which involves the restrictions being in place due to pizza-loving aliens that take over the world without your knowledge and brainwashing everyone to eat pizza and drink soda.

Although the coordinator for the Positivity Challenge is Millie Bobby Brown, the rule against contacting Jasmine Holiday holds for her as well. Participating in the Positivity Challenge in the tournament is not allowed.

That was a lot of fun, thanks team.

Col Lector finished with 3 complete collections = 300
and 3 3/4 aspirations = 1.75

Total 300 x 1.75 = 525

I made a couple of mistakes but ended up with a middle of the pack score.  I completed 8 collections, 1 aspiration and 3 components of the 2nd.  800 x 1.35 = 1080.

I find the collections really tricky! My Sim, Lukas, completed 2 collections and 3.5 aspirations, for a total score of 340.

My sim completed six collections, and two and a quarter aspirations.

(6 x 100) = 600
1 + (9 x 0.5) = 1.45
Total = 600 x 1.45 = 870
