Summer Barbecue Walkthrough ***SPOILER WARNING***

★★ Guide

Hey lovelies! I've written a walkthrough for the event, in case anyone needs it. This one is pretty easy compared to World of Luxury, but it also has a shorter time limit. Good luck!

 


 

Video Walkthrough: https://youtu.be/NELsVlerqe0

 



Tips

1. Complete the Mysteries of the Garden Gnome Mission before you do anything else, since it grants you 1,760 Lemon Slices just in bonuses.

 

2. Don't spend your Lemon Slices until you reach Part 6 and Part 9 of the Garden Gnome mission, as those ones require you to spend a certain number of Lemon Slices DURING that phase to finish them. Lemon Slices spent BEFORE that phase do not count towards the goal. This excludes the bonus Lemon Slices they give you after Part 1 to try out the event. Those are free!

 

3. Any Events you complete have a chance to drop 125 Lemon Slices. The most efficient way to earn Lemon Slices through events is to complete Short Events for careers, hobbies, and social stories up to Level 5, then swap your Sims over to another career, hobby, or social story. The low level quick events are the fastest ones to complete and have the same chance to drop 125 Lemon Slices as anything else.

@naninamanolo: Go to Parkside, it's at the Cafe. You remember where that Tea Tasting Event was during the World of Luxury Event? It's basically the same thing.
