There’s a new quest in The Sims Mobile! The Back to School Event is now available for a limited time, giving players 7 days to complete the necessary steps that will reward them with the final “Back to School Relationship Stories” rewards. The event also grants “Apples” for completing everyday and event related tasks.

Apples can be used to purchase items from the Lunch Bag and Collector’s Lunch Box. Both contain the same items, the only difference is that you have a choice of purchasing with Apples (250) or SimCash (75). More on this later in the post.

To begin this quest, select the “Quests” tab on the right side of your screen. If you do not see the “Going Study Crazy” quest, restart your game.

The Back to School Event is marked with a multi-colored “Limited Time” banner

To complete the Back to School Event, you will have to complete 29 individual quests in the game. You will receive rewards and Apples along the way (the new event related currency), and be rewarded the “Back to School Relationship Stories” upon completing the final quest. Below is the list of quests (in the order they appear) that you need to complete, along with rewards and requirements.

Lunch Bag & Collector’s Lunch Box

When completing quests and events related to the Back to School event, and performing everyday random tasks in the world, Sims will earn special “Apples”. The apples can then be redeemed for special CAS items in the game.

There are two types: Lunch Bag and Collector’s Lunch Box. Their only difference is that items purchased in the Lunch Bag require 250 Apples, and items from the Collector’s Lunch Box require 75 SimCash. The latter of the two allows you to purchase and complete the collection without collecting Apples.

❗ To access the Lunch Bags, select the Book Pile icon on the upper right side of the screen, or select the “Store” icon on the top left of the screen. 

The Back to School Collection consists of Create-a-Sim Items, including a Gnome and Hot Dog costumes. Items are listed by “rarity” (Common, Uncommon, and Rare) & chances of receiving them depend on the game. There are also some other rewards like Fashion Gems Simoleons, and SimCash.

The entire collection includes the following items: 

  • Create-a-Sim Items
    • (1) Haute Dog Costume
    • (1) Garden Gnome Mascot
    • (1) Female Hairstyle
    • (3) Male Hairstyles
    • (22) Pieces of Clothing (Male & Female)
  • Other Rewards
    • Fashion Gems
    • SimCash
    • Simoleons
Tap the lunch box to retrieve your prize

When clicking the currency button in each chest and “buying it”, you are technically “rolling the dice” so to speak. Realistically, these are chance boxes. You are not guaranteed to get different items each time, you will receive many duplicates, and you are not able to select what you receive either. The item you receive varies and is based on “chance”.

Items are tagged by rarity. This means you have a 60% chance to unlock Common items, a 25% chance to unlock Uncommon items, and a 15% chance of unlocking Rare items. Select the information icon to view color tags for each item.

With the way this system is set up, you will end up receiving plenty of duplicates. This is ok in the beginning as you may need to collect multiples of items to complete the set, but this will eventually lead to an excess of items. When this happens, items will be converted into special rewards that vary depending on the rarity of the item.

The following reward conversions are made when receiving duplicates: 

  • Common Items
    • 125 Simoleons (Lunch Bag)
    • 980 Simoleons (Collector’s Lunch Box)
  • Uncommon Items
    • 190 Simoleons (Lunch Bag)
    • 1500 Simoleons (Collector’s Lunch Box)
  • Rare Items
    • 5 Fashion Gems (Lunch Bag)
    • 30 Fashion Gems (Collector’s Lunch Box)

 

New Relationship Stories

When completing the Back to School Event quests, you will unlock the ability to select new relationship stories. There are three brand new relationship stories available.

  • Romancing the Tomes
  • Study Buddies
  • Debasing Debaters
