SimSnap Mini Game Guide

SimSnap is the first internal Mini Game to be added to The Sims Social online Facebook game and as you already know it's been implemented during this weeks Geek Theme. The aim of the game is to match images by memory within a set amount of time whilst they are covered.

To enter the SimSnap Mini Game you must click on the icon which is located at the right hand side of your The Sims Social game screen. Once inside you must successfully match two identical tiles by memory. Once you have matched a pair they will disappear from the game. You must repeat this process until all of the cards in each game are cleared.

In order to play SimSnap you must have SimSnap Lives which regenerate every 9 hours. These work in the same way as Energy. Once a SimSnap Life is used you will enter the game where you have a set amount of time to complete 8 stages and begin to accumulate SimSnap Points. These points equal prizes so try your best to match as many pairs as possible within the fastest time possible. If you reach the 8th Stage you will be rewarded with 3 additional SimSnap Lives.

The first set of SimSnap prizes are as follows:

20,000 SimSnap Points = My Pug Pal
40,000 SimSnap Points = New Tony's Orrary
60,000 SimSnap Points = Theo Nix
100,000 SimSnap Points = Kochanski Chess Set


There are also four 'SimSnap Boosters' that will help you achieve the above Points and Prizes which include a 'Score Multiplier' which of course multiplies your score, 'Sneak Peek' that reveals half of the cards on the grid, 'Combo Booster' which increases the amount of SimSnap Points you earn for matching the cards in a combo and 'Extra Time' which adds an extra 5 seconds to the total time of your SimSnap rounds. You can Craft these SimSnap Boosters via your Craft Menu which is located towards the bottom right of your The Sims Social game screen.

What are your thoughts and opinions on the new SimSnap Mini Game for The Sims Social? Do you think it adds a cool new element to our favourite online Facebook game? Would you like to see more Mini Games in the future? How many SimSnap Points and Prizes have you managed to accumulate so far?

  4. i think they should allow you to request life for the game....like can do for the main game's energy.

  5. The point totals required for the prizes and the 9 hr. reset are absurd. I'm not slow and I never finish stage 4. I doubt if I will reach 20,000, even with boosts.

    1. If you can't even finish stage 4, then you ARE slow. I can finish stage 7 without any boosts.

  6. 9h, it's too long to get new life to play again. Should be better to get one per hour.

  7. I like playing but it's hard and I haven't even gotten to the second prize yet. I don't think I will make it. :( That chess set is cool though.

  14. I'm not understanding why quests and games keep being put out with such short time frames. The normal person gets on for what, 10 minutes at a time once, maybe twice per day? How are we supposed to finish this game in a couple days when energy is produced every NINE HOURS?!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't want any more of these many games if they are going to be as ridiculous as this one. It's aimed at people who don't use laptops and who have high end gaming computers. For the rest of us, it's either a set up for failure - or a deep dig into our pockets for an incredible amount of simcash in order to gather enough lives to win the only prize of the 4 worth having. Major FAIL Sim Social developers!

  16. I am enjoying playing the SimSnap game but I, too, think it would be difficult to complete if ones only computer were a laptop with no mouse. I have never completed the entire puzzle but am hoping that my above-average scores end up being enough to earn the chess set. Very cool!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Not enough time given and energy every 6 hours is absurd.. Need to be able to request energy or i'll never finish in time.. I just got the pug but 2 days to get everything else will not happen!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't understand why the quest has such a short time limit. People who have to work will never manage this... and the time in the mini game is also too short. I reach level 4 or 5 and this is only the easier half!

  20. I've been spamming this game since the day it came out, making sure I was constantly on the timer so as to get as many lives as possible.... and I haven't even gotten the 3rd prize yet. I get to level 5 or 6 each time, and I have a high score of just over 4000, so I'm doing well. Impossible to get the chess set without buying lives in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  21. too short time period. 23 hours again it will end. and add Life in 9 secs? impossible unless i have lotsa SimCash :'(

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have to wait hours to get 1 life for the game; hours for a 2 minutes of gameplay. I'm just getting to the second prize and I only have 1 day left to win the chest set. They made the prize impossible to win unless you buy simscash. Well, they can keep their chess set because I'm not spending a dime on simcash....

  23. Even with six hour energy regeneration it's impossible to get to the final goal in such a short time. They need to extend the time to achieve the chess set.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes, the time frames for this are basically impossible unless you have tons of money to throw at the problem, TONS. The devs should extend this deadline by one more week, that would at least be doable by the average player who was willing to commit some time and effort. They need to learn that making impossible goals does not make people more likely to pay to play, it makes it less likely that they will play at all.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can regularly get to level six or seven, and always have double boosts, and I am still going to be short by about 40,000 points on this deadline. Devs need to either extend the deadline by a week, or dump us all ten extra plays on this thing before the deadline so we at least have some chance of completing it on time.

  26. Hate that it takes long to get lives

    ReplyDelete
  27. I need a extra week or 2 to finish the game, hopefully if the game expires 2night i will resort to diffident tactics in the future, if you don't want to play fair i don't want either

    ReplyDelete
  28. I believe there should be a little challenge to every game but this was nearly impossible to finish! Did not even make it to the third prize because of time. They could make it a little easier!

  29. ok the game freezes. you close the page and get back on right? WRONG!
    Now when the game freezes I can't even close the page I'm playing less and less and less.
    Also items you buy with sims cash are to high and to many.

    ReplyDelete
  30. If you had finish the second last checkbox, it is always above 4k score without boosters, then you can get 2 extra lives.

    now, i have 61 lives with me, waiting the third round coming.

    Hope this helps~

  31. Do note that the top prize isn't for everyone.
    It's called "top prize", not "last prize".

    I like the game being hard. It's human nature to appreciate what is less. If you won the top prize, you know how it feels to be in the minority who conquered the mini-game. You feel proud owning a top prize furniture in your house.

    Sims Social had been mundane until this mini-quest came. Whenever there's something to compete, it gave me motivation to enter the game. If every weeks' quests just consist of gathering materials, which anyone can achieve, there won't be competition and motivations. It'll just be a bore grinding.

    For those who couldn't get the last prize due to lack of skills or other circumstances, do not fret. Different logic skill furnitures will come sooner or later. These sim-snap logic skill furnitures will be exclusive to the winners of the top prize because they earn it.

  32. How much does the score multiplier actually multiply?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have never gotten the 4th prize, even with boosts and the like.
    However, I do use a laptop with no mouse and I don't use simcash, so...
    hmm.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I almost always get to the final stage. With boosts (multiplier and sneaky reveal) it's almost guaranteed. At the final stage, you're rewarded with 3 extra lives. Currently I have 94 lives, top score of 9451. My computer and internet aren't that good. The only trick I can offer is to definitely use sneaky reveal and either the combo booster or the score multiplier for score boost or the extra time if you are trying to get lives (reaching final stage). Another is to not look straight at the puzzle. Looking in the corner seems to make it easier to remember where they are, at least it does to me.

  35. I can get all 4 prizes within an hour with no boosts. :) I wish that there were MORE prizes so I don't have to wait 8 days for new prizes to come out. This game is the best part of sims social.
