The Sims Freeplay- The Castle

This post shows you what the castle looks like on the inside and how to issue decrees.


Before you can see inside the castle you need to:

  1. Build it
  2. Then complete the Royal Lineage Quest
  3. Once you have completed that quest you need to complete the archery hobby to unlock the royal gallery.

Then you complete the jester hobby to unlock the throne room

Castle Gardens– complete the archery using the targets

Build the statues by completing the archery hobby to unlock the royal gallery

The gallery costs S200,000

The Royal Gallery– complete the jester hobby using the chest

Throne Room– complete the jester hobby to build the throne room

The throne room costs S300,000 and takes a day to build

 Once built you can access the top floor of the castle:


And new royalty clothes become available in the wardrobe


Issuing Decrees

Teens and Adults can issue decrees, to do this they first have to be wearing a royal outfit (one that you unlock when you build the throne room)

Then click on the throne to issue decrees or rule (they will just sit on the throne for 4 hours)


They sit and issue the decree for 4 hours, once issued it will come into effect for 24 hours (if you have a decree that isn’t mentioned please let me know so I can add it to the list)

Some are useful like making new friends faster and some are just for fun like snow day!

  • Snow Day- snows for 24 hours
  • Friendship Day- sims will make new friends faster for 24 hours
  • Walk Like Zombies- sims walk like zombies for 24 hours
  • Rainy Day- rains for 24 hours
  • National Hat Day- all sims wear hats for 24 hours (you don’t have to put a hat on each sim, it happens automatically)
  • Lover’s Day
  • Friendship Day

You cannot cancel a decree, if you want to start a new one while another one is still in progress you will have to speed up with LPs

The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Archery


Adult and Teen sims will be able to complete the archery hobby using the targets in the castle grounds once you complete the Royal Lineage Quest.

There are 2 targets so two sims can complete this hobby at one time, once you have completed the quest click on one of the targets and select:

  • Practice Archery- 7 hours 30 minutes


After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the archery shot collectibles. Every time your sim practices archery your sims hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the archery shot collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL  Practice Archery
1-2 50%
2-3 25%
3-4 25%
4-5 12%
5-6 12%

For example you would have to practice archery 4 times to reach level 5

The next table shows you for each level what archery shot collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Public Hazard Misfire and Peg Leg are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Wonky Shooter On the Board and Eye on the Prize are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Hit and Miss Snake Eyes and Middle Master are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Hot Shot Triple Threat and Three’s Company are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Bullseye Hero Sure Shot and Divisive Hit are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 The Chosen One Side Splitter and Sherwood’s Finest are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby!

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed archery collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

The first time you complete a row you will unlock one of the statues in the garden, you need to complete the collection and build all 4 statues to be able to open the Castleto complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles. After the first time you will earn XPs when you complete a row in the collection.

The Statues:

  1. First row unlocks the Archers statue which costs S35,000 and takes 4 hours to build
  2. Second row unlocks the Jesters statue which costs S50,000 and takes 6 hours to build
  3. Third row unlocks the statue of the Prince which costs S75,000 and takes 8 hours to build
  4. Fourth row unlocks the statue of the Princess which costs S125,000 and takes 10 hours to build


  • Once you have built all the statues you will unlock the gallery which costs S200,000, once built you will be able to enter the castle and begin the Jester Hobby
  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LPs
