All right, after spending some time very quickly going over the list of challenges on the boolprop forum, I have made a list of the challenges I would like to try and complete as I go through my learning on the various expansion packs, which means, unless it is a one generation challenge, most likely only one challenge will be done per expansion pack.  What I am trying to figure out right now is what order I should do them in so that the challenge best matches up with the additions the expansion pack added.

List of challenges I would like to complete eventually - Original List:
  • Legacy Challenge - Base game - in progress
  • Alphabet Legacy
  • Apocalypse Challenge - Nightlife
  • Officially Wacky Boolprop Challenge - University?
  • Asylum Challenge
  • Build a City Challenge - Apartment Life
  • NPC Challenge
  • Prosperity Challenge
  • Pure Entrepreneur - Open for Business
  • Royal Kingdom Challenge
  • Who Is Your Daddy Challenge - Free Time
There are more challenges than expansion packs and that is because some of them, while fun I am sure, are more limited in what they would require for exploring the game so the short ones might get played at the same time as a longer challenge.

You may be wondering why I am doing this now since I am not even on to the second generation of my Base game Legacy challenge, well, I am a planner, I love to plan.  If I have a list now, then I will be less likely to try a challenge before I have enough expansion packs added to complete all of the challenges and I won't put off one until much later that could be done easily earlier on.  Also, since I have only read stories for a few of these, I may not fully understand from just browsing the list and rules, what really is needed to make the challenge fun and interesting.

All help is always appreciated.

Modified list as per suggestions: 

  • Legacy Challenge - Base game - in progress
  • Asylum Challenge - University
  • Royal Kingdom Challenge - University
  • Apocalypse Challenge - Night Life
  • Officially Wacky Boolprop Challenge - Night Life
  • Pure Entrepreneur - Open for Business
  • Alphabet Legacy - Pets
  • NPC Challenge - Seasons
  • Who Is Your Daddy Challenge - Bon Voyage
  • Prosperity Challenge - Free Time
  • Build a City Challenge - Apartment Life
Mmmmm challenges *Homer-like drooling*

I haven't tried all of them so I can't advice you much, but I can still give you my two cents.
The OWBC can be done with any number of EPs but I'd suggest you have at least two EPs so you can get as many points as possible, so I'd say you should try it once you have Nightlife as well as Uni. (Nightlife comes after Uni, doesn't it?)
The WYD challenge can be done even with only Base Game, there are plenty of potential babydaddies to choose from really, but of course the more the merrier.

lol, you and your lists. :D
Yes, I am a list fiend, I get it from my parents, you should see my dad make lists, seriously, I aspire to his level of listness; I don't think that is a real word.

Maybe I will move OWBC to Pets since I want to avoid that particular part of the Apocalypse rules. Although I think I could do an Apocalypse with just University since you really just have to have University at the beginning. I may swap those two.

I guess when I saw the list of baby daddies needed for WYD my eyes kind of bugged out of my head and I couldn't figure out where I would find them all if I did it too early. I think Vacation is about as early as I could do that one but I will go back through the list later when I am a little less tired and and can figure out who comes from what expansion pack.

Thank you for the suggestions.
You are very ambitious! I tend to start a challenge and get bored very easily. I cannot tell you how many times I have started various Asylums or Uglacies (I like the more comical type callenges). I am currently half way through gen one of a challenge I found last week, here :


I might actually keep up with this one, and I still have my current uglacy languishing in Pleasantview ( currently in gen two) if I ever feel the desire to pick that one up again. I hope to post some of the Ipod shuffle challenge on my other journal, as I like to keep only the Curiouses on this one. The curiouses are the only ones I have been able to faithfully keep up with, even when real life hits the fan for a while, I always come back.

I am hoping to finally get some stuff packs I am missing so I can complete my game collection, I have a little extra money right now and one to treat myself to a little something (something I do all too rarely).
I saw that one earlier and if I didn't already have so many challenges lined up for myself I might have added it to the list as well. There is also nothing to say I won't get bored with some of these (27 gen Legacy, I see that as being no plot and all pushing out babies) but others are shorter and will probably be good for breaks from the longer ones.

I have been lucky with my game because I always tell Kevin as soon as a new expansion pack/stuff pack was announced and then he would make sure the budget allowed us to get it, usually without telling me. I would always tell him to wait until we can afford it later even if it meant waiting a few months, but somehow he always had it on day of release as a surprise for me, first thing in the morning. I am very lucky to have Kevin.

I didn't realize you had another journal, could you give me a link, I would be interested in seeing what you do that is not the Curious family because you write them so well.
I've only had the page since November. I waffled about doing one with personal stuff on it. It also has some non-Curious sims stuff, but not a whole lot yet. My game crashed last night while playing my Ipod legacy, just as the first gen 2 baby was about to be born. ( Glad I saved when the momma started waving her arms about.) I might put some stuff up later tonight. I'm really proud of my founder, he's quite a looker ;-)

I would agree w/ you that WYDC would be better with BV. Yes, technically you could do it w/ base game, but the prospect of a Big Foot Baby Daddy is too good to be ignored.

I think some of the most difficult and so therefore the most prized baby daddies would come from vacation lots. If only the big foot baby would get some of his facial features, I want to see that in my game. Stupid non-genetic character.
