Curiouser And Curiouser Quest Guide

The first Alice In Wonderland Quest has arrived and it has certainly spiced things up a little. We think it is one of the most exciting and well thought out Quests for a long time, although we can understand if some players find it slightly annoying in places as to complete it you must rely on patience and random garden objects such as grass appearing.

The Curiouser and Curiouser Quest has 5 parts which is timed to expire after 7 days. It may take many players a good portion of this time to finish due to needing to find many different Ingredients, waiting for grass to grow and the big search for The Cheshire Cat.

The reward for completing this Quest is the TimeForTea Party Limited Edition decoration that yet again holds no actions but has a very attractive House Value boost of +4300 or it can be sold for 1500 Simoleons as well as the huge Lifetime Points that can be earned via each successfully completed section.

We've rated this Quest as rather difficult, but in a fun and patience way rather than challenging. After all, what's the fun in easy Quests? Right?


Neighbours Needed: 1 (Minimum)
Maximum Social Points Needed: 0
Maximum Simoleons Needed: 1500 (Male) 700 (Female)
Ingredients Needed: 4x Muse, 5x Dreams, 5x Goodwill, 5x Bling
Objects Needed: Easel, Item of Alice In Wonderland Clothing
Rewards: 105 Lifetime Points, 580 Simoleons, 105 XP, 5x Energy, 30 Social Points


Difficulty: 4/5

PART 1


*Say 'Curiouser And Curiouser' To 2 Different Sims
Visit 2 Neighbours and perform 'Curiouser And Curiouser' action on them. You need to go to Bella's house for the other tasks to this part so you may as well do one on her.


*Go Down The Rabbit Hole 3 Times
You can find a Rabbit Hole at Bella's house if you are completing this quest within the Alice themed week. Simply click it and perform action 'Go Down' three times to complete. You can also buy the 'Rabbit Hole' in The Sims Social store for 3000 Simoleons in the 'Outdoor' section.


*Eat Queens Cupcakes 3 Times
Go to Bella's house and 'Eat' the 'Luxurious Cupcakes' on her table three times.

PART 2


*Collect 3 Red Essence From Red Furniture And Items In Yours' Or A Friends House
This task is quite fun, if you have any red coloured items in your home then click 'Collect Red Essence' is the easiest way. Otherwise you may have to search your Neighbours houses for some. If you are struggling Bella has a Red Chair, Bed and Stool that can be collected from.

*Do 4 Skill Interactions With Easels
Dust off that Easel and place it in your home and Skill on the item like you normally would to Level Up and earn Simoleons to complete this task. Make sure you get Inspired first so you can earn double the Simoleons. Do this four times.

*Paint 4 Different White Roses Red
You must find four separate 'Queens Rose Bushes' and use action 'Paint Red' on them. As they are 79 SimCash each we suggest visiting Bella's house and doing them on hers for Free. Your Sim will get bored after doing this twice so try and space the actions out with the raising your Sims needs. You'll also earn 8 Social Points from this too.

PART 3


*Have 4 Muse
If you do not already have Muse then you can ask your friends for them, do Art and Music skills or Take pictures of birds for a chance at dropping them.


*Clear 6 Grass To Try And Find The Cheshire Cat
Unfortunately their is no easy way to complete this as any grass cleared must be from your own home and grass growing in your garden in a random action. The best and only way to make it appear is to keep logging out and in. This way still does not guarantee the grass to spawn.


*Ask The Cheshire Cat What's Going On
Again their is no easy way to find The Cheshire Cat. The Cheshire Cat is VERY Rare. You will just have to keep visiting Neighbours and hope he is sat in their garden. Once found, use action 'What's Going On' on him. You may be lucky and he may appear in your Sims garden randomly. Alternatively this part only costs 3 SimCash to skip if you really cannot find him.


PART 4


*Have 5 Dreams
If you do not already have Dreams then you can ask your friends for them or perform sleep actions to hopefully drop them.


*Have 5 Goodwill
If you do not already have Goodwill then you can ask your friends for or perform friendly interaction with other Neighbours for a chance at dropping them.


*Have 10 Pieces Of Evidence By Collecting Evidence From New Alice In Wonderland Furniture
You can collect Evidence from any piece of furniture from the new Alice In Wonderland collection. If you are planning on buying some anyway then you can just collect it from them or if you have plenty of Energy saved up you can visit Bella who has over ten items you can collect Evidence from.


PART 5


*Have A Piece Of New Alice In Wonderland Clothing
Go to The Sims Social clothing store and purchase and wear an item from the new collection of Alice In Wonderland clothing. For the males it is any of the Mad Hatter clothes or females can choose from the Queens Dress or Alice Dress.


*Have 5 Bling
If you do not already have Bling then you can ask your friends for them or mine them from the random Blue Plumbob Garden Asteroids.


*Grow Larger Than Life By Eating EatMe Cake To Put The Queen Of Hearts In Her Place
In order to complete this task you must eat a piece of 'EatMe Cake'. Bella has some on her kitchen table or you can purchase it from The Sims Social store for  450 Simoleons under the 'Decorations' category. Remember to use the 'EatMe' action and not the 'Eat' action to pass.

  1. Yeah, making us wait for grass to grow is ridiculous.

  2. Gives new meaning to watching grass grow ...

    ReplyDelete
  3. The prize is not worth the trouble :(

    ReplyDelete
  4. Love that I am being put at a disadvantage for keeping my yard tidy *sarcasm*

    ReplyDelete
  5. if we are clean and careful people, is that mean that's a guilt? i dont want to see any grass in my garden but it is pushing me to be curious about grass. yeah Sow, you re right mate, this really gives meaning to watching grass grow..

    ReplyDelete
  6. glad i just expanded my property plenty of grass to clear

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm just going to buy more land so I can cut its grass.

    ReplyDelete
  8. And after all the trouble of waiting for the grass to grow - the prize is just more junky decor with no actions AND the lifetime points are worthless to those of us who have hit level 50. Unless of course, they'd like to add some more levels so we have something to work towards again!

    ReplyDelete
  9. If you haven't purchase all the new land yet that could be another alternative to getting grass.

    ReplyDelete
  10. No way just bought land and cleared the grass out of boredom while I was waiting for a new quest:(

    ReplyDelete
  11. sO STUPID ABOUT GRASS

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow. Great job to whoever invented such quest. Hello? You expect us to watch the grass grow (literally) and keep visiting our neighbours to await the magical Cheshire Cat to appear? Omg seriously? Is this a joke because it better be one or else there goes another few millions of your players, EA.

    ReplyDelete
  13. hey come on we have 6 days to wait for the grasses

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am going to go insane if I cannot find this cheshire cat!

    ReplyDelete
  15. It doesn't need to be grass. I cut those thorn bushes and it counted towards the quest. I'm going to guess that's true of all the weed items that have the action "cut grass".

    ReplyDelete
  16. Does anyone find this Cheshire Cat? I already visit a hundred neighbors (literally, I'm not exaggerating) and cannot find this %$&*!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well... this is kinda lame.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't have any grass,this is SO stupid,why can't we in this case cut the neighbor grass???I want to complete this becasue most of the tea sets and cups are for sim cash so i would like to have this...but seems like it's not gonna happen...

    ReplyDelete
  19. omg well if they want the grass cut they should give us some....

    ReplyDelete
  20. Me too... Glad I opened up my yard, by taking out like 4 rooms, just to have "more yard"... lol I had a feeling a challenge would come. Well, glad this gives us 6 days to do. However, I agree. The reward is NOT worth the challenging efforts. LoL! Does get players to "get in" game, but not really, since the reward isn't worth it. I don't care for the reward, just doing the quest as fun time, since I've gotten bored with the game, here lately. The only thing keeping me in game is the bit of skills I have going on with the new music item skills. lol Let's see how this goes. If I get enough sim cash at bonus, I just may use it to finish this quest, maybe. lol The reward could of been something more worth it, like something with interaction. And, please. Can you give us writing skill items?! lol I'm waiting... :P -- Been as patient as possible... Not letting the irritation of this game, get the best of me... It's an emotional roller coaster, debating on whether to keep at this game or not... =/

  21. finding the cat is worse

    ReplyDelete
  22. Iv been Looking for the cat FOREVER, This is annoying...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Im gonna have to buy more land then -____- but i cnt find the effin cat :(

    ReplyDelete
  24. lucky for me I never clear out my yard because it annoys me really badly, and I feel this game should have a lawn mower and never require energy. So Ill clear some for this if I do it

    ReplyDelete
  25. cutting thorns in your yard can substitute for grass.

    ReplyDelete
  26. can't find that gdcc (gosh darn cheshire cat)

    ReplyDelete
  27. i need that green,green grass..........please do some action!!!!!! i dont have grass on my yard :'(

    ReplyDelete
  28. :'( please put some grass on our yard....dont want to expand another land that cost 7,000 just to have those grass......

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nevermind the damn grass!!! Its the cat that is causing a problem! I was super excited for this theme week because I thought there may be a chance that the cat could be purchased or won as a plushie in a quest and all he is good for is being VERY RARE. He is driving me MAD!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I wish the cat just appears...

    ReplyDelete
  31. for the Alice in Wonderland clothing, does it HAVE to be the dresses, or can we buy the cheaper things like socks?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I already have all the land expansions, so I have to wait for grass :(

    ReplyDelete
  33. Don't even bother trying to find the cheshire cat yet. Been to over 200 people and he hasn't showed. I doubt he's been implemented yet.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I JUST finished clearing all my grass and then I saw the next part of this quest...>_> I just decided to expand land instead lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. fully expanded land and kept lawn... this is totally unfair. give me the quest reward and my 4,000 social points back from the aquarium debacle. Ugh. Love them and hate them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I cannot find the cat. This is not fun. It's frustrating and annoying.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Where's the damn cat brah?????

    ReplyDelete
  38. Where's the cat? I visited all my friends yards and didn't see it

    ReplyDelete
  39. and what about the cat? i haven't seen one!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Well I don't have any spare area where grass can grow!

    ReplyDelete
  41. let us know if you have any luck finding the Cheshire Cat - I think we may all get stuck there for a while...

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yeah, this is a great quest for those of us with fully expanded and well-manicured lots - i.e. the people that play the most! Well-played, EA, well-played. :P

    ReplyDelete
  43. Darn Cheshire Cat -_- But I like the reward so at least this quest helped me decide to buy more land so I can cut the grass.

    ReplyDelete
  44. i expanded all the land and clear all the grass so as to keep my land tidy. it is absolutely ridiculous!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm having problems painting Bella's bushes. I've managed to paint 4 but it still says I've painted 2. :(

    ReplyDelete
  46. This grass cleating and cat finding is always impossible. I have plenty of friends and been visiting everyone without any luck and my grass refuses to grow :(

    ReplyDelete
  47. Seriously people, why do you all complain so much? So you can't finish the quest in 5 minutes, big whoop. Relax, it gives you a week to do it. Now everyone take a deep breath with me and repeat..."I will be calm and upgrade my skill levels while I patiently wait" Or if y'all have a life outside the computer why don't you go cut REAL grass for your parents or grandparents or elderly neighbor?

    ReplyDelete
  48. 4.3 K not worth, i will skip this quest

    ReplyDelete
  49. no more grass in my land!!! :((

    ReplyDelete
  50. This is ridiculous!! I've been logging in and out all day and visiting my 100+ neighbors and still no grass and no cat. Gah!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. who knew keeping your plot tidy would be such a rewarding effort :| I hatre the grass part! or atleast they should have made grasses appear everywhere :( such a trouble! the reward is not worth all this man!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Could y'all stop bitching? kthxbye.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Cheshire cat may or may not show up at all? That's not really fair.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have a question: I have a lot of neighbours but many of them are not active players anymore. Could I find the cat in their yards too or I should check only in the yards of active players? Thank you for the answer

    ReplyDelete
  55. It needs two neighbors : Bella is a neigbor.
    It require to have a friend tho, but no request sending, so more fair would be write requirement as 2 neighbors...

    ReplyDelete
  56. has anyone found a good way to locate the Cheshire cat?

    ReplyDelete
  57. grass isnt the problem, the cat is :/

    ReplyDelete
  58. I loVE the new grass colour! I guess it won't stay for long, but I LOVE IT!

    ReplyDelete
  59. It's almost 12 hours now and still no cat. If I see that darn cat, I'm gonna shoot first & ask questions later ...

    ReplyDelete
  60. Yup the grass problem can be remedied by buying more land. :D

    ReplyDelete
  61. Not loving my fully expanded, well-mowed yard rignt now.

    I'm not gonna sit and watch the grass grow. I'll pass on this lame quest.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Cat already spawned in my garden.

    People, the quest only got life today. You have 6 days to complete it. Can't you be just a little bit more patient?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Just found the cheshire cat in bella's garden, you can check there between the rose bushes. Btw is it me or are all these quests pointless? you spend tonnes of money and time completing them for useless junk that sells for less money than we could have got from just decorating a christmas tree.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Found the Cheshire Cat when I was moving bushes looking for grass. I've refreshed the game nearly a hundred times now and have only gotten one patch of grass. Clearing the mushrooms should count towards this quest too, I wouldn't care so much but I try to finish all of the quests for items.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I just found the cheshire cat!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Just logged in and the cat was in my yard. Now just to wait for the grass to grow...

    ReplyDelete
  67. Not happy that I have to wait for my grass to grow...Wishing that I hadn't gone through the trouble of clearing out my yard completely... Worst quest yet.

    ReplyDelete
  68. this quest its STUPID! seriously, do you really want that we wait just to see the grass grow? ¬_¬

    ReplyDelete
  69. Done this quest, VERY easy. Cat was already present in my yard to begin with. * On the last part, it asks you to buy a piece of clothing. You can choose any of them, including the headbands! The article is wrong!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'm absolutely shocked anyone could describe this quest as "one of the most exciting and well thought out Quests [in] a long time."

    I've refreshed hundreds of times and still have not completed the grass part.

    I'm in love with the decoration item but I do NOT want to pay to bypass this part. It's just a POORLY thought out quest requirement.

    ReplyDelete
  71. This might seem like an ok quest, except that I am doomed to failure as I have only had 2 opportunities to cut grass in 2 days... and one of those was a pre-existing clump. Odds of 4 more magically appearing in the next few days? Yea, right.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I have the cat in my yard! Its the cutting grass part that is troubling me.

    ReplyDelete
  73. The grass requirement is ridiculous. I have no control over it and there is nothing I can do to get grass. I have refreshed again again again and no grass.

    ReplyDelete
  74. i cant believe i spent 18 simcash because of that stupid grass

    ReplyDelete
  75. I actually found the cat in my own yard without even looking for it so I didn't know it was such a big prblem until I came here, but the grass is impossible, I don't think I'll have any grass be growing in my yard for the next five days .. well I'll wait and see, it's just a little sad because I was excited for the quest, usually brings a little purpose to the game when you finished all the expansions, are in level 50 and mastered all the skills ... but not like that.

    ReplyDelete
  76. finished the quest! it was very tedious.

    ReplyDelete
  77. ahhhhhhhh stupid grass!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. How long should I wait before a grass appears...

    ReplyDelete
  79. littlemissdesserts6 January 2012 06:41

    The Cheshire cat is now everywhere. At least on my lawn and on Bella's lawn as well :)

    But I still have problems with the grass. There's a bad side to being a neat freak after all :(

    ReplyDelete
  80. Cat was in my yard. Saw it in Bella's yard too. Expand your land and you'll have lots of grass to cut.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Found the cat in my yard too, he just was there when I logged in. That grass on the other hand... Uggh!

    ReplyDelete
  82. the grass are ridiculous. i cut the flower-a-like-weed and it still didn't count as 'grass' DAMN IT!
    Why EA don't simply let us cut the neighbour's grass?

    and just when I thought "okay let's buy a new land..." they cut the inspired earning into half. WHAT.
    i already at level 50, and it's kinda boring that it won't go any further.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I found the cat in front of Bella's house. Not hard to see since it's literally just a blue cat icon. It should be there, I think...

    ReplyDelete
  84. It's about time the developers bring out an upgradeable lawnmower so ppl can cut down 3 grass with 1 energy. It surely would help me. I can hardly keep up with grass overwhelming my garden.

    ReplyDelete
  85. ABOUT GRASS : i'm going to buy a new piece of land, in that way i'm pretty sur there'll be plenty of grass on !

    ReplyDelete
  86. I found the cat at Bella's also. I'm annoyed about the grass. I feel it's never going to grow, and I don't feel like expanding my land. If the quest is to cut some grass, they should make the grass grow a bit faster.

    ReplyDelete
  87. can we have more grass to compete the quest? dun wanna give up....

    ReplyDelete
  88. The cat has stopped by two or three times but my grass wont grow and I've been waiting since they released the quest. When you don't want it to grow, it grows a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  89. GROW GRASS!! GIVE ME GRASS!!6XXXXX!!! AHHHHHH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. grass plss!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  91. It's been 2-days now, and not ONE BLADE OF GRASS in my yard :( I guess I'll be out of the running on this quest. (RocketGranny Evony)

    ReplyDelete
  92. there is no grass for the third day! Well I dont waste money for extension, so this time I won't go on with this quest!

    ReplyDelete
  93. It's been 2days now and my grass still hasn't grown with me logging in several times a day. Usually I get over all the little things that sims has issues with, but, This Sucks. Like everyone else has said, waiting for your grass to grow is really ridiculous. Even if it does grow before this quest is over I need at least two of the fully grown patches to spawn to be able to cut it 6times, which might not even happen.

    It's not really about the rewards for me, I just enjoy doing the quests, it keeps me playing sims. Whoever made this quest Did Not have their long-term players in mind. The people that have stuck around to perfect their sims houses through all the bugs and frustration, are now getting screwed for playing everyday, having full land expansions, large expensive rooms we worked hard to get that take up most of our yard, and logging in constantly to keep our gardens looking nice.

    If they are trying to keep people around by releasing new quest chains every week, they should really test them out before they launch them because they are just losing more people every single week when another maddening problem like this comes with the release of them.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Almost 3 days and not a blade of grass has grown. Can I call a vote for this being the most cocked-up quest in Sims Social ever?

    ReplyDelete
  95. what is it with this quest no grass growing is it the sims after making money out of us people we like to play the game and it should be an option to buy things this is creating a way of making people spend money life is hard enough as it is and to come here and have a bit of fun is what its supposed to be about and if the grass dont grow thats it for me

    ReplyDelete
  96. i have the grass problem but there are soo many cats on my lawn!!

    ReplyDelete
  97. 3 days left and i still havent finished the grass thing quest..why is it that when people need it there are no grass to be found..grrrrrr....i'm beginning to hate it...

    ReplyDelete
  98. Please, tell them to give us grass. We cannot finish the quest. I don't have any land to expand. I keep logging out and in but the grass doesn't appear.Please help.

    ReplyDelete
  99. This quest sucks :( After two days, I managed to cut grass 3 times. I can't expand my land anymore, so I just have to wait for some more grass to grow, but I only get stupid mushrooms and other stuff that doesn't count...

    ReplyDelete
  100. Quest is going to expire on me because grass won't grow...

    Some times I really want to know who it is, suggesting these really really stupid ideas. Maybe pop into the board/meeting room and bitch slap them every time they're about to make another suggestion.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Hi, grass is not growing at all! do something please...

    ReplyDelete
  102. I had 2 cats in my yard instantly, but had just finished clearing all my grass after months of leaving it wild. :(

    ReplyDelete
  103. if you need grass purchase an expansion! I can't believe I didn't think of that till now

    ReplyDelete
  104. Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

    I haven't finished the quest, but I *finally* got all of the grass that I need. Now the rest of the quest is just waiting for my energy to refill.

    It was a tough quest, but I still prefer it to waiting on friends to click on my feed. I have semi-active friends who don't really click on the fb feed stuff, but if I request an item, they will give it to me.

    ReplyDelete
  105. the cat on your property at your home he just keep poppin up at my crib and i don't need him.i just need one piece of grass.smh..

    ReplyDelete
  106. Still waiting for grass to grow... and for all those who said buy a land expansion, well I finished expanding there is no more land expansion to buy.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I have THREE Cheshire cats if someone is looking for one! Also I usually have grass everyday! Since this quest I have had just ONE patch to clear..This is where I am confused. I do not think people should be so nasty on their posts though. It is not going to do any good to fuss..And do you guys really think this is ANONYMOUS? Really? Just sayin.....

    ReplyDelete
  108. lol... stupidest game quest like EVER. E-V-E-R! what? do you think everyone's a new player? what about those who stuck around since the early days of Sims Social? are we being punished for being loyal to a game? what 500 social points? in this case, just offer the rewards for FREE. there is no need for anyone to wait for grass patches anymore and don't get me started on the cat.

    ReplyDelete

    I only have 1 hour to get this nice set..:(
    I was waiting for the grass for 6 days...
    So, where is my set??
    Please send me for free or let us get it from the shop. I think this is honest.
    I play this game every day. This is my time to relax, but this is annoying, please help.
    Thank you very much
