I have now finished a spreadsheet to help calculate the time spent in each challenge world.
When you use it you need to create a copy for your own use.

What would be considered a unique fish?

I don't think people need to report at this time what world they were in for each challenge. We will expect that information from the winners, though.

Yes, your Sim does have to visit Willow Creek, Oasis Springs, and Newcrest. The other 2 are up to you, or you can repeat if you don't have any other worlds.

@Rainbow Dash, since you've watched the show, you know that players don't suddenly become vampires or mermaids in the middle. Nevertheless, we've changed the rules to keep the Sims human.
We don't know that.  I mean, they don't show us everything.  They might edit that out for insurance purposes.

Still.  Yeah.

Another question - how do you tell if you've won a chess game?  My sims have played a lot of chess, but I can't remember ever knowing whether they won or lost.  They just kind of stop after a while - or sometimes don't.  (in Sims 3, it was obvious.  Do they do something that I just haven't paid any attention to?)

You have to have the sound on. The winner says "Meckchate."
Alternatively, The winner gets a confident moodlet 4 hour moodlet labeled "Chess Victor".  For repeated wins, see if the counter has reset to 4 hours after a game of chess has finished.

Alright, I just got back into town yesterday and this seemed pretty short and sweet. There went my afternoon!

Lisa Rhoades completed her trip around the world by:

Catching 5 unique fish in Newcrest in 8 hours 43 minutes
Reaching Level 5 Fitness in San Myshuno in 18 hours 14 minutes
Making 5 Friends in Oasis Springs who Lived there in 25 hours 59 minutes
Winning 5 Chess Matches against residents of Willow Creek at their own library in 39 hours 8 minutes
Earned $50 (Actually$52) in tips in Del Sol Valley in 7 Hours 51 Minutes

With her resting periods of 12 hours, plus a little for travel time and walking, the spreadsheet gave me a total time of 5996 Minutes, or 99 Hours 55 Minutes.

Are we supposed to be adding in the rest periods or just the time it takes to complete each challenge?

For example, the first challenge takes 8 hours to complete. We stop counting time until we start the next challenge, correct? So, challenge one is 8 hours. Then, time starts again when we leave the home lot for the next challenge. If that challenge takes 12 hours, the total score would be 20 hours (converted to minutes). In other words, time spent on the home lot doesn’t count. Or do I have that wrong?

You are right, the rest time is not calculated in the score.
So if you use the spreadsheet that i linked and add the start and end of each challenge, you will get your correct time used on the challenges.

Sorry Marian! If it's any consolation, my place probably won't hold either. It seems like whenever I think I have a pretty good score these days someone comes along and crushes it, often spectacularly. :)

Can one of your worlds (to complete one of the challenges) be one your living in during the 12 hour break?

I won't be able to even try this one in that case. My Windows 10 PC doesn't have sound from what I can tell. :(

I noticed that the winner of the chess game thought bubble has a thumbs up sign and the looser has a thumbs down at the end of the game.

Yes. As for the thought bubbles -- I think the sound is more accurate, and I think Deklitch found a solution.

I did find a solution, I had my headphones plugged in and on my head for the chess part and plugged in but off my head for the rest of the challenge. Thanks Marian for that pointer re using the headphones. :)
