Chen Lee discovered, assembled, and activated 1 relic.  This was interesting as I usually don't play this pack.  It made me stretch my wings and play in a different way than I normally do.

My sim discovered and activated on herself 11 relics.  I haven't played with jungle adventure except as a casual holiday destination in quite a while, so this was fun.

Oh  man this one felt easier than a lot of the challenges, but was still such a rush for time!


Ultimately I was able to get 19 relics and activate them.
I couldn't for the life of me find more than a few of the cat relic tops and I was bummed about that.

Can't wait to read everyone else's strategies.

@SnuSnu, I removed much of your post. The rules state very clearly that strategies cannot be shared until the challenge is over for everyone.

My sim activated 11 relics. I won't lie here, I was hoping for a much better result. Oh well, I never have any good luck with 'chance' challenges. Off to the skills one - I am usually much much better in those! :D

...now that it's all over...
I get to say that the late breaking cloning ban threw me for a loop because until that point, cloning had been my strategy.
But, I ended up learning a lot more about Jungle Adventure in the ensuing scramble.  Thanks!  Fun challenge.

I'm guessing for everyone with 18+ relics, the bottleneck issue was with those darn cats.  >:(

The only real strategy that I pulled was to initially raise my Selvadorian Culture skill before going into the woods--lets you avoid some bee/firefly nonsense and opens the secret shop from which you can buy watcher bases and one of the kinds of tops, along with need fillers for food and hygiene, plus infinite machetes. I also traveled back and for to El Selvadorada and home a few times to reload the market, since I didn't want to get attacked in the jungle. I did a new vacation for every excursion so I didn't have to wait for temple reloads.

The other thing once I realized the usefulness was to fill the Jungle Explorer aspiration, since at that point you had a chance to get multiple relic parts from simple treasure chests.

The only relic that I made sure to get was the skeleton one since then it freezes most of your needs (though it did scare me and said the effect had 4 days left when it only had 2, go figure).

I also just used my computer to buy the 18 common and uncommon jems, helped me keep track of which ones I had a lot better since they were color coded. I got plenty of rare jems from machete'ing through passageways and passing the scenarios. I mailed them all in rather than refining them myself.

If I did it again, I wouldn't even bother with archaeology; I would repeat my beginning strategy then actually prioritize for the Jungle Explorer aspiration, then constantly go into all the jungle doors and through the temples.
