Now all you need to find is that old VHS tape of Disney'sAladdin--don't lie, you know you own one. It's Arabian Nights week in The Sims Social, and Playfish has introduced quite the quest for players to complete, "I Dream of Genies." (Man, this week's theme is pop culture reference gold, huh?)

Those who complete the quest within seven days will earn their very own Desert Treasure, but it won't be a walk in the park. Players will need 12 Relaxation, 18 Love, a Music Skill Item, 400 Social Points, 4,600 Simoleons and at least 10 friends to complete "I Dream of Genies." Without further delay, here's how to finish the quest fast:

I Dream of Genies Part 1

  • Ask 6 Sims if They've Heard of Johnny or Jenny

  • Run 9 Purple Items to Find Genies

  • Become Inspired

First, visit six friends' Sims, click on them and choose the "Heard of Jenny or Johnny or Something" option. While you're there, click on their purple items and choose the "Rub Rub" option to fulfill the second task. This can also be done at your Sim's home. To become Inspired, simply fulfill all of your Sim's needs, which is easier to do last since your Social meter will be filled.
