The Sims Freeplay- Missing Claus Christmas 2018 Quest

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys (Presented by EA GameChangers) 


Are you ready to save Christmas in the 2018 Christmas Quest? There are 13 sets of goals to complete in the 13 day time limit so there is a set of goals to complete each day, if you complete the quest in the time limit you win the gorgeous Farmhouse template! Make sure you update your game to the 2018 holiday update to be able to start this quest

You have to wait between completing each set so you complete one set per day, after completing a set you have to wait for a certain amount of time before being able to continue with the quest unless you are behind then you will move straight onto the next set once you have completed the previous.

Watch my step by step walkthrough video of this quest here

TIP: there are lots of tasks that need to be done more than once, use the maximum sims you can to complete the task, if you just use one sim you will run out of time

The Rustic Black Two Seater (10SP) Rustic Black Three Seater (20LP) and Modern Brown Coffee Table (S75,000) can be found in the living room section

I’m not sure why it is a modern brown coffee table when everything else is rustic, it also isn’t the same coffee table shown in the pictures during the quest but it was definitely the one I unlocked when I completed this set

Twelfth Set: Rustic Furniture Pack

The Rustic Buffet Table (5LP) and Rustic Grey Hutch (10SP) can be found in the living room and dining room sections

The Rustic Steel Chandelier (5LP) can be found in the lighting section

Thirteenth Set: Farmhouse and A-Frame Roofing

You will be able to build the Farmhouse on a standard or premium residence, the first one is free, after that the cost in simoleons depends on how many houses you have already built

NOTE: it is not possible to build a house with the veranda (roofed porch) it is currently only available on the Farmhouse

The only difference between the Farmhouse on a standard and a premium is the garden and one different object in the basement. You still get the chicken coop, table and barn on the premium like you do on the standard, you just get an extra picket fenced area on the premium:

The standard comes with a candle in the basement and the premium has a lamp to match the one on the other table:

I think I prefer this house on the standard rather than the premium as I don’t think we really need the extra picket fenced area that you get with the premium

Watch my house tour of the Farmhouse here:

You also unlock the A- Frame Roofing which is a new style of roofing for all your houses:

I think they have done an amazing job on this quest and the prizes this year, the farmhouse is gorgeous and I really love so many of the items we unlock in this quest but as usual the prices are just too expensive- at least not everything costs social points this year as they did last!

Merry Christmas to you all!

  1. What is wrong with firemonkeys? The prices of new itens on this update are ridiculous, i am lv53 and almost never use some building features because of the price and now they add even more overpriced itens ( 30 k on a door?), The only thing i will try using sometimes will be the hedges, the others itens i will not even gonna use the free one.

  2. Thanks for your post! Can you clarify whether the premium lot also includes the enclosed outdoor dining set/area and chicken coop, as seen on the standard lot?

  3. Would have loved to get the kitchen set as well 😭😭😭 It is still lovely but that kitchen is unbelievable 😭😭😭

  4. Are the beds in the houses available for us in any other quest😭😭😭 I need that single bed in my life dude😂😂😱

  5. Does the kitchen set get unlocked? Or will we have to buy several houses to put cabinets in our inventory? Btw thank you so much I always visit ur website for any quest or update! 😊💝

  6. What do you mean by servers sims completing sets at the same time? Does this mean they give us more then one thing to do all at once ?so we don’t have to complete one task before another one appears?

    • No, I mean some tasks require more than one sim for example ‘have 4 snowball fights’ so you need 4 pairs of sims to complete this at the same time so it will only take 2 hours 15 minutes, if you did this 4 times with the same 2 sims then it will take you a lot longer (9 hours) and you will most definitely run out of time in this quest.

  7. I have already run into a problem with this quest! During panic about Christmas using 8 sims, went back after time was completed and it only counted one set. So had to start over, essentially. Hope it counts them this time. Very disappointing start. Anyone encountered this issue.

    • I noticed some of my panicking sims stopped panicking and I had to restart them, so maybe something similar happened the person who only had one panic interaction counted. In my case when they got near the pool they automatically changed to swimsuits and jumped in, still panicking. But at some point (only a few minutes later) the game stopped considering them as panicked and I had to restart them. The time/progress bar actually disappeared. Maybe swimming calmed them down!

  8. Hi. Thanks for the post. 🙂 Um so I just now started but instead of 13 days it says I have 12 days? Did I miss a day or something?

  9. Hi, I want to ask about firt step. I have the weather machine already, so I can not turn it on. How is it? Because when I want to do the quest, I mean to turn it on the weather machine, it’s already on. Thank you.

  10. I haven’t gotten to it yet, but I’m confused when you said that if you have spare sims growing onions, to not go to the house until you get the goal. Does this mean you can have them start to grow onions when the day (day 4) starts, but you can’t visit the house they’re at until the 7 hours are over. I don’t want to mess up and have to end up waiting another 63+ hours before I can continue on!

    • Once day 3 is complete I would suggest you have a few sims starting the grow onions task at home but you will need to stay away from them until you get the goal to collect the onions, if you have them all in one house doing this you are less likely to mess it up as you just have one house you need to stay away from until you get the goal, sorry its hard to explain!

  11. I was so excited about this update and the prizes, everything is so lovely! The prices are so disappointing though! How are they asking 40 sp for that one painting? lol sadly I won’t be able to actually use any of these beautiful items other than the free x1.
    Is the farmhouse simoleans or lp/sp? Perhaps I can get the items by building the house a few times haha.

  12. I’ve studied all four clues in the workshop…but when I go to the park to talk to Rudolph…I only get the option to go back to Santa’s workshop 😢

  13. Hej,
    I’ve noticed that when I am in Santa farmhouse there are reindeers on the left, is it only during an event or they will be there when I build my own farmhouse?

  14. On Day 4, the “Look for a Cure” task, that problem with bookcase access comes up again: Only two Sims can take a book from the Scholarly Bookcase. After that point, Sims get the blue footprints/denied access. Unless someone has a way around this (since you can’t import extra bookcases to the cottage), you’re going to have to do it in 3 two-hour segments–or spend LP–to have the task completed the required 5 times. Argh.

  15. I’m at the part where I have to give soup to Mrs. Claus. The problem is, I can’t!!! Every time I click on the “give soup…” icon above Mrs. Claus, my sim will refuse with a footprint icon, meaning it can’t get to the side of the bed. Is there something that is obstructing my sim from getting to the side of the bed? Are you facing the same problems?? I’m super angry because I’m so close to being done with this part!!!

  16. Hello, I’m stuck at the “Give Mrs. Claus soup” part. It gives the “cannot walk there” feet symbol. I’m able to walk near her side if the bed, but I cannot complete the action. Is there another way?

  17. Help! I’m on day four and can’t get passed the onions! I’ve had more than 10 sims planting onions and I’ve done it 3 times! It won’t forward to the next task. I’m afraid I’m going to get way behind:(
