@llamazing just start playing it, after reading the ruleset and the general challenge rules, then post your score in here. So yes, just dive in and participate and best of luck that you can actually finish it.

Heads up! Pictures of the first 10 Anniversary Party can be found here. @techiechick, you're on the guest list for the 2nd party.

Marian you have the wrong simself for me.  Couldn't figure out why.  The one you have is my second choice in case the first one didn't work, which it did.  My simself is Robyn Hood.  Couldn't figure out why it wasn't showing up in the gallery or my library and then I realized I had used CC!!  So, I went around today and cleaned her up.  Her hair and eyelashes and some party clothes were all cc.  Took me forever but she's ready, sort of looks the way I did as a YA, (still have the mole on my cheek, lol), including things I ever did wear or would have worn.  Sigh, too bad the hair is all grey and no longer red, and the rest, well we all know how our sims look when they age up to elder, right?  Lol.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

I've noticed that one of the items only exists in Willow Creek/Oasis Springs in a residental lot that isn't necessarily populated. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't remember ever seeing it anywhere else in the base game locations.

All the items can be found either in  homes of the premade Sims or on Community lots. Keep looking!

Okay guys, please put me as DNF as well.
I failed to find the fossil no matter what, and my game is definitely acting wrong in spawning collectibles. After a few sim days, new ones just don't appear unless I spend the whole sim day at one place without leaving. Too bad - it seemed like a nice and quick challenge, but I just don't have the desire to continue wasting my real time. Even if I do, my score will be the lowest one anyway because too much time has already passed in the game. Guess, just as in real life, I am not welcome at the party :(

I have the same problem. Impossible to find the t-rex fossil! I'm at the beginning of week 3,and only miss 2 fossils /15: a rare one,and the t-rex one.
My sim has  more than 60 fossils in her inventory !

I got the other items,including angelfish,in 3 sims days. Then I've been spending 11 sims days only digging and digging...

Since a few days new collectibles don't appear anymore so I guess it's impossible for me to get it  :(
Can you put me as DNF?

I tried but after two weeks had gone by and still no fish, I quit.  :( I might try the challenge again, maybe I'll be luckier this time.

Well, if you're quitting for good, then I need to mark you on the leaderboard as DNF. But, if you're just taking a break, that's fine.

So, to clarify, we don't use fishing skill for the angelfish and we don't dig up the fossils? we need to find them somewhere and swipe them?

Sorry. Yes, you do need to dig up the fossil and fish for the angelfish.

I've been having so much fun with the Power of 10 dynasty that I've forgotten to come back and read the comments.  Until I saw this, I wasn't going to do the challenge, because with the rule that everything had to be swiped, I figured the fossil and a mounted angelfish were somewhere in Oasis Springs or Willow Creek and I just couldn't find them.  Now I'll have to put Power of Ten and my other games on hold while I go steal some stuff right quick!   :D :D

@Nikitachi, @Deklitch, of course you guys are welcome at the party.

Anyway, my Simself finally completed her fossil collection found the Hilariously Tiny T-Rex Arms fossil on Week 1, Saturday, at 3:24 am -- 8364 minutes after she started.

Now I'm questioning whether I understand correctly - we have to host a gold medal party after we have everything collected, and we post the time at the end of the party, right?  Or can we host the party before everything is collected?

I read it the first way and that is how I did it. 

The way it's worded says first go on a scavenger hunt, then throw a gold medal party. Throwing the party while waiting for the cool down between swiping to expire could shave off a significant amount of time, anywhere from about 2-5 hours if you get the gold on the first try and it gives an advantage if the player doesn't get the gold at first. Then, you basically have "free" time to keep trying.

That may not be what was intended, but that is how I read it, for whatever that's worth! :)

That's how I read it also, but I wasn't sure based on @MarianT 's post - it sounded to me like the time being identified is when the last item was found.  That's what has me confused.

Hi MarianT. Just wondering, the rules say "you need to go on a Scavenger Hunt first and then throw your own gold-medal party" which I'd have thought most people would interpret as you have to collect everything before you can have the party. It won't affect me really as my score will be way down the leader board anyway, but couldn't that significantly affect some people's scores?

Well, Sarleenia managed to finish on Wednesday of week 1 at 18:58, giving a score of 4978. Not sure how I managed that but I was lucky with the angel fish!

Not according to the ruleset, @MarianT

The ruleset says the following:

To join the party, you need to go on a Scavenger Hunt first and then throw your own gold-medal party.

How does that equate to throwing the party at any time?
