Thanks everyone! I was afraid it would be dull, but I had a lot of fun with it, too.

@MarianT I've always loved racing challenges and the variety in this one added an extra fun element to it, thanks for coming up with such a great challenge, I had a blast with this one!  :D

Verily Swift completed all her challenges in 1,515 minutes.

Hehe, see what I did with the name there? ^^ I wanted to race through this challenge because the next challenge has got me running scared!  :o

Great scores from everyone so far, loving it!  :)

The team just decided that Story Mode simply gives too much of an advantage, so it's banned. If you used that feature and posted your score already, then you will need to redo your effort. Thanks.

Hi all! I just made my first attempt at the challenge and came up over 6100 minutes.  I accidentally sent my Sim to a world where there were no musical instruments or microphones in public areas to do the Tips part, so that didn't help. I'll plan a little better and see if I can get a different result next time. It was a fun challenge though!

Welcome to the forum, techiechick. Just to save you from potentially wasting time, there are no second attempts in the Tournament challenges. When you post a score, that's what is put on the leaderboard. You can practice as many times as you wish, but actually posting a score means you're done.

Rats. I'll read the rules more carefully next time!

My exact score was 6169 minutes if you want it for the board.

Thanks. :) And no worries. There are General Rules covering all events and then there are specific rules for the individual challenges. Here's a link to the General Rules...

Just checking in to say I started my file before the update so I’m good in regard to the CAS Story Mode ruling.

Me too, I started my scoring file before the update came out and finished just after it did.

It's good to see some new players jumping into the tournaments, have fun guys!  :)

Mine was both started and finished before the update in question, so as much as I'd like to have another go and see if I can't fix the mistakes I made, I'm left at that score lol. :D

This morning I redid the challenge.  Caityln made it out at 2310.  I am so proud of my less sleepy, more practiced number.

Just for lurker entertainment, I did run an illegal sim through the challenge too. Sleep and practice overcame the advantages of the story mode sim in my case, but I did mess up that run badly.  Having run both kinds of sims, I think the team made a good decision.  Story CAS Kellie was able to overcome a major error compared to my sim running as smoothly as I could imagine.

It was a fun event.

Hi All, 

Some amazing scores.   :)   

Cecelia Moffet did her best and managed to complete all 5 tasks in 5092 minutes,

I do enjoy these challenges, but real life this year has been crazily busy, so this is the first one I have completed.  Hoping things will slow down a bit, so that I can get on the scoresheet, even if it is not very high !

Good luck to all, can't wait to hear the strategies.
