The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Jester

CASTLE – JESTER’S CHEST – ADULT SIMS ONLY – PRIZE: THRONE ROOM AND 3LPs

 

Once you complete the Archery hobby and unlock the gallery one of your adult sims can complete the jester hobby.

To complete the jester hobby you need to click on the jester’s chest in the castle gallery (that you unlocked in the archery hobby) and select the option:

  • Dance- 4 hours 30 minutes

When you start you will only have this first option, you need to find all 3 different dance moves to complete the first row in the jester collection to unlock the mime option on the chest, you then need to find the 3 mimes to unlock the tambourine option and find the 3 tambourine moves to unlock the final option which is flags to find the last three to complete the collection

image

  • Dance- 4 hours 30 minutes (first row)
  • Mime- 3 hours 30 minutes (second row)
  • Tambourine- 4 hours 30 minutes (third row)
  • Flags- 5 hours 30 minutes (last row)

Once you complete the collection for the first time you can pick an option on the chest in any order but you will still need to do each option to find the different moves to complete each row

OPTION  FIND TO UNLOCK:
DANCE
  • Joker
  • Harlequin
  • Court Jester
Fool, Acrobat and Gymnast

USING THE MIME OPTION

MIME
  • Fool
  • Acrobat
  • Gymnast
Bard, Minstrel and Troubadour

USING THE TAMBOURINE OPTION

TAMBOURINE
  • Bard
  • Minstrel
  • Troubadour
Basic Swing, Zig Zags and Spirals

USING THE FLAGS OPTION

FLAGS
  • Basic Swing
  • Zig Zags
  • Spirals
You can now complete the collection!

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the jester collectibles in that row. You still level up in this hobby but the hobby level up percentage isn’t important as the jester collectibles don’t unlock depending on your level, when you finish a row of jester collectibles you will unlock the ability to find the jester moves in the next row.

The table below shows you the level up reward that your sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

 LEVEL  TITLE 1st TIME LEVEL UP REWARD
1 Beginner
2 Novice 250XP
3 Intermediate 500XP
4 Skilled S750
5 Advanced 10,000 Town Value
6 Master Fool 1LP

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 jester 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 a new option to find the next row of jester moves, further times you will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are the throne room and 3LPs:

  • The first time you complete the jester collection you unlock the throne room which costs S300,000 and takes a day to build, this unlocks the upstairs of the castle, once built you unlock royalty clothes and the ability to issue decrees on the royal throne on the second floor of the castle ( read my castle post for more information)

image

  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 3LPs
