A new reality TV show has come to The Sims Mobile, The Sweet Treat Showdown! The first of this brand new type of event ‘Country House Sweet Treat Showdown’ starts on the 1st August and is available for 15 days (update your game to the latest update to begin)
How does it work? The host of the show Patty Cakes will guide your sims through the event which you can start if one is available from the ‘activities’ tab in the event button in the top right of the screen or by clicking on the baking station in Parkside:
Your sim will bake over several rounds against their opponent, a professional chef, the more skilled the opponent the more rounds there are in a challenge. Your sim needs to click the ‘Bake it!’ option on the baking station in Parkside, when they do this they will either succeed or fail (similar to risky actions) For each round they win they will add rewards to their prize basket.
If they succeed, the rewards from that round are added to their prize basket and the challenge continues or you can choose to collect the content of their prize basket and end their run (earning you the prizes)
TIP: You don’t always have to try and make it to the end of a challenge, you can play it safe and end their run to get the content of the prize basket rather than losing it on your next attempt
If they fail, they get the option to either take a consolation prize or ask for Patty’s help to fix their dessert (which costs simcash, the amount varies depending on which round you fail on) If Patty fixes the dessert your sim can continue the challenge.
Can I see if they are likely to succeed or not? Yes, at the bottom of your screen while completing the challenge you will see your success chance, you will also see this when you click Bake it!:
How often can I do the Sweet Treat Challenge? You can store up 3 attempts which means you can do 3 challenges in a row (if you succeed on a round you continue, if you fail this counts as an attempt so if you failed 3 times in a row you will need to wait) and then you will have to wait 8 hours for another attempt.
How can I improve my chances of winning a round? Your sims can complete prep actions around the bakery location, these will show how much they will boost your chance of success, you can complete these actions until you are confident to attempt the ‘Bake it!’ option.
Other prep actions give rewards such as Sweet Treat Tokens, Royal Treat Tokens, Fashion Gems, Life Tickets or Simoleons- these rewards can’t be claimed right away though, these will go into your prize basket so you have to win a challenge or claim them after a round.
What are sugar cubes for? Sugar cubes are like energy, these are required for the prep actions. Your sim gets a full bar of sugar cubes at the beginning of each challenge but it doesn’t refill over time or at the start of a round. You can purchase more sugar cubes for simcash and some prep actions award sugar cubes.
How do I collect the rewards from my prize basket? The contents of your prize basket can be claimed by winning a round and select ‘collect and quit’ or you will automatically claim the prize basket if you win the final round of a challenge.
What do I spend my prize basket tokens on? You can buy prize boxes with these, there are two prizes boxes the Sweet Treat Box or Royal Treat Box, you can find these in the rewards tab of the event button:
How do I open the prize boxes in the Sweet Treat Showdown? There are two prize boxes the Sweet Treat Box which can be opened with 425 Sweet Treat Tokens and there are 52 prizes to collect and the Royal Treat Box which can be opened with 10 Royal Treat Tokens, there are 24 prizes to collect from that box:
Can I get duplicates from the prize boxes? No these boxes don’t give duplicates (yay!) so once you have a prize you won’t get it again- you can also buy multiples from buy mode once unlocked
How do I earn Sweet Treat Tokens and Royal Treat Tokens? You can earn these by completing the Sweet Treat Challenge or other events in the ‘activities’ tab of the Sweet Treat Showdown screen (button in the top right)
How do I earn the grand prize? You can earn the grand prize once you have earned all the prizes within the Sweet Treat and Royal Treat Boxes, there are 76 to collect (you can see your progress on the Sweet Treat Showdown screen)
I don’t want to finish a Sweet Treat Challenge how do I stop it? If you click on the ‘view’ button next to your sims picture you will see the option to forfeit so you will earn the consolation prize. I would suggest you just click ‘Bake it!’ as you might win and be able to collect your prize basket but if you fail you still get the consolation prize:
