The Sims Mobile didn’t take any time to jump headfirst into its first-ever event! For this week only, The Sims Mobile is hosting the Hot Tub Dreams Event! This event will have players earning *sigh* ducky bucks in order to unlock a variety of furniture and swimsuits.
How to Earn Ducky Bucks
There are 3 ways to earn ducky bucks.
The first way is through your regular to-do list. Just complete the tasks as usual, and you will be rewarded with an additional 10 ducky bucks on top of the rewards that completing tasks on the list already gives.
Second, there are 9 quests which have you doing a variety of tasks pertaining to the event, such as trying on and showing off swimsuits as well as planning hot tub parties with your friends.
The final way to earn ducky bucks is through completing two events. Both events take place in Market Square. All you need to do is press this icon, then play it out like a normal event.
One of the events is called Haute Tub Couture Fashion and can be found inside the fashion building.
The other event is titled Spa-Side Snacks and can be started inside the Restaurant.
Both of these events can be completed again after waiting six hours, which of course is skippable if you’re willing to pay some SimCash. They award 18 ducky bucks each. Like with regular career events, occasionally you’ll have the option to watch an ad for additional rewards. Doing this will grant you two more ducky bucks.
Side note: This will be a great time to use your cupcakes to refill your stamina in order to complete the events as fast as possible. The faster you get done with the event, the sooner you can start it again. Given that there’s a limited time to get these items, there is no better time to use your cupcakes!
What to Spend Your Ducky Bucks On
Once you’ve collected at least 50 ducky bucks, you can purchase Hot Tub Goodie Bags. You can find where to purchase them by clicking on the rubber ducky in the top-right corner of your screen.
A goody bag is essentially a loot box that can give you one of these 15 items per bag.
There are three levels of rarity: Common, Uncommon, and Rare.
Overall this event doesn’t seem too bad. One of my gripes with this event is that they they put resources that we can already get through other means as rewards. I don’t want to spend 50 hard-earned ducky bucks only to get any of these ….
My only other gripe is that you can buy the gift bags with real money. I don’t think this is a huge offense, I’m just foreseeing myself on the final day of this event, vulnerable and hot tubless, shelling out hard-earned money in a desperate attempt for status in an online mobile game.
