The Sims Social's 'The Search for the Holy Snail': How to finish it fast
Hark, The Sims Social player, thy time has come to Medieval Week in Playfish's top social game. Fine, enough with the accent, but we do bring gifts of knowledge. Knowledge of this week's themed quest, "The Search for the Holy Snail," that is. (Has John Cleese been contacted about this?)
Anyway, you're going to need eight friends (six of which are actively clicking feeds), an Athletic Skill item, a Computer or Bookcase and two dirty items to succeed. Plus, you'll need at least 598 Simoleons, 2,080 Social Points. Your reward for finishing this daunting--and likely epic--quest is the M'Lord's Coat of Arms, an item needed to get Leopold's Lute later. Onward!
- Research Knights of the Triangular Table
- Ask 4 Sims about Hamalot
First, click computers or bookcases and choose "Research Knights," which can be done on any computer or bookcase. While you're at it, click your friends' Sims and choose the "Heard of Hamalot?" option. You'll earn 20 Lifetime Points, 20 Simoleons and 15 XP.
The Search for the Holy Snail Part 2
- Get Inspired!
- Investigate 2 dirty items
- Clean 2 dirty items
To get inspired, just fulfill your Sim's needs until their glowing green. (You'll then know when Inspiration happens.) Click dirty items at home or friend's house and choose "Investigate" to finish the second task. Then click them and choose the "Clean" option to finish this quest. A cool 20 Lifetime Points, 20 Simoleons and 30 XP await you.
The Search for the Holy Snail Part 3
- Grow and Harvest 10 Strawberries
- Grow and Harvest 2 Watermelons
- Check 2 garden plots for snails
Strawberries take 5 minutes to mature and will cost a total of 440 Simoleons. To grow and harvest two Watermelons, you'll need to wait 12 hours for them to mature and at least 158 Simoleons. In the meantime, you can visit a neighbor's house, click plots and choose the "Look for Snails" option. For this, you'll score 25 Lifetime Points, 30 Simoleons and 30 XP.
The Search for the Holy Snail Part 4
- Earn 1,000 Simoleons by doing athletic skill activities

Next, visit Bella's house, click the Archery Range and choose "Beat Bella's Personal Best." This may take several tries to complete. Expect to earn 30 Lifetime Points, 20 Simoleons and 30 XP.

First, buy item in the "Specials" section of the Store for 990 Social Points. (Be sure to check whether Bella has one before you buy.) Then, click the item and ask questions 10 times. Finally, your six friends must respond to a story posted to your news feed. Enjoy the 30 Lifetime Points, 30 Simoleons and 25 XP for finishing this quest.
