The third stage in the lengthy (and complicated) Trick or Treat Trail in SimCity Social sees you interacting with a sad, but friendly ghost, out to get revenge on some baddies that raided her grandmother's tomb. This series marks the halfway point in the Trail, but you're on an incredibly short time limit to make it this far and beyond: you'll have less than week to get everything done, as of this writing. These Ghost quests are called "Tomb Raiders," and we're here with a guide to finish them off, thanks to the official SimCity Social forums. Let's get started!
- Search for 3 Clues
- Play at the Playground
- Collect from Toy Factories 5 Times
The Clues are earned by visiting three different graveyards, and this is one task that currently can't be completed by visiting friends' cities. This leaves you to purchase three on your own, which each cost 5,000 Simoleons in the store. Thankfully, these are decorative items, with each providing a +18 boost to the population of surrounding homes, so they're not entirely useless even after this quest is over. As for the Toy Factory, this one costs 1,600 Simoleons to purchase, and it gives out 30 Materials every five minutes. For completing this first quest, you'll receive 5,000 Simoleons and five XP.
- Collect from 5 Restaurants
- Visit Friends Theme Parks 3 Times
- Have 10 Bags of Candy
Bags of Candy are earned by tending businesses or asking your friends to send them to you. While I would normally say save your friend requests for other items, you may not receive a Bag of Candy from each individual business you tend, so it might be better off asking friends for guaranteed bags. As for the Theme Park task, this can thankfully be accomplished all at one friend's park. For reference, Don does have one, so visit him if you can't find one elsewhere (or simply don't want to waste time looking). Complete this quest and you'll receive five XP and three building collectibles.
The Big BOO!
- Build a Pumpkin Patch
- Have 3 Laughing Skulls
- Lie in Wait
The Pumpkin Patch can be purchased in the game's store, under the "Featured" section for 8,000 Simoleons. It's a decorative Halloween item that offers a +16 population boost to surrounding homes, and has a plot size identical to that of a basic home. As for the Laughing Skulls, these are earned by asking your friends to send them to you. You can also technically receive them from tending Factories, although this is very rare. Finally, "lying in wait" is a task that can be completed by clicking on your new Pumpkin Patch. For completing this quest, you'll receive 7,500 Simoleons and five XP.
- Go Rowing
- Feed Horses
Before your new ghost friend heads back into the afterlife, she wants to fulfill some relaxing tasks. You can "go rowing" by interacting with a Scenic Pond, while "feeding horses" is done at a Horse Ranch. Finally, "stargazing" can be done at an Observatory, and if you're a veteran player of the game, you should already have these items ready and waiting for you in your town. If not, you can purchase them from the store, or you might be able to finish them at a friend's town, if you're lucky. For finishing this final task, you'll receive 5 XP, two Wrath collectibles and a Funeral Home. As with other end prizes in this Trick or Treat Trail event, this Funeral Home isn't available to purchase in the game's store, so you'll need to work fast to claim it if you're interested. Good luck!
