Sushi Week Quest Guide
30 August 2012
Ah, young grasshopper, you wish to make sushi, do you? To perfect the ancient and sublime art of sushi-making, one must be calm like the moon reflected on a pond on a breeze-less night, have the patience of a heron as it stands in the stream waiting for the lone fish to cross its path, and have fingers as nimble as the tentacles of an octopus as it wiggles them about all over the place. (I mean have you seen those things? That’s flexibility for you!)
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Luckily for you, there are only six steps to this week’s quest! :D Let’s go!
Just Wanna Have Sumo Fun! – Step 1
- Have a Kurage Sushi Bar
- Research 2 Sushi Recipes
- Get inspired
It is important for every aspiring Sushi Master to have the tools of the trade as well as the knowledge and desire to create delicious sushi. Pick up a Kurage Sushi Bar from the Shop and place it in your home or garden. Click on a computer and ‘Research Sushi Recipes’ twice. Get inspired by fulfilling all your needs.
Rewards: 10 Life points, 40 Coins, 15 XP, 2 Energy, Nutty Snack Bar
Just Wanna Have Sumo Fun! – Step 2
- Have a Tatsu Sumo Ring
- Collect 3 Sesame
- Get 3 Salmon
Physical activity will help you hone your tenacity and killer instincts until they are as sharp as the blade you use to slice your fish. Buy a Tatsu Sumo Ring from the shop for simoleons. Harvest objects appearing around your and your friends’ houses and collect 3 Sesame. Now that you have sufficiently exerted yourself, you are ready to touch some actual fish! Click on fridges and ‘Grab Some Salmon’.
Rewards: 10 Life points, 50 Coins, 20 XP, 3 Energy, Entertainment
Just Wanna Have Sumo Fun! – Step 3
- Practice 'Chop Chop Chopping' 3 times
- Ask Sims to try your sushi
- Harvest 3 Red Flowers
The proper technique for chopping and slicing is crucial. Get this one thing wrong and all your training will be for nothing, you hear me? NOTHING! *Ahem.* Only joking. We can work this out together. Click on a Kurage Sushi Bar and practice 'Chop Chop Chopping'. 3 times should be enough. Now we can move on to trying to make some sushi! Careful… Careful… Yes! That’s the way. Spare yourself the stomach ache by offering it to a friend first (you know, to test it!). Visit them or call them over and ask them to 'Try This Sushi!' After that trying endeavour, it is good to relax the mind with some gardening. Plant and harvest 3 Red Flowers in your garden plots (it will only take 15 minutes).
Rewards: 10 Life points, 70 Coins, 25 XP, 3 Energy, Leftovers
Just Wanna Have Sumo Fun! – Step 4
- Buy new clothes
- 'Practice Painting' on a Kaze Kimono Painting Set
- Collect 3 Green Tea
A tea ceremony can teach us many things – patience, serenity, how to drink hot leaf juice and act like you enjoy it. Yes, that is exactly what you need. Prepare for the ceremony by buying some new clothes from the shop. Click on a Kaze Kimono Painting Set (visit Bella’s home if you don’t have one) and 'Practice Painting'. Search outside your house or your friends’ houses and collect 3 Green Tea.
Rewards: 20 Life points, 100 Coins, 30 XP, 3 Energy, Cloth
Just Wanna Have Sumo Fun! – Step 5
- Have a 'Mock Round' on a Tatsu Sumo Ring
- Invite 3 friends to try sumo wrestling
- Have 3 Hope
Hmmm you’re starting to look a little too relaxed, grasshopper. We can’t have that! Get into a Tatsu Sumo Ring and have a ‘Mock Round’ before moving on to the real thing. Post a feed on your wall asking 3 of your friends to spar with you. Do you think you can win? Well there’s no harm in having hope, I suppose. 3 of them to be exact. Ask your friends to send you some.
Rewards: 30 Life points, 120 Coins, 35 XP, 3 Energy, Delicious Morsel
Just Wanna Have Sumo Fun! – Step 6
- Have a Pit of Zen
- Interact with the Pit of Zen
- Complete stage 1 of your Kurage Sushi Bar
Are you feeling nervous about your sushi-making skills? A Zen sand garden can help release the pressure on your mind. Buy a Pit of Zen from the shop and build it, then interact with it. You can’t make good sushi without a good sushi bar. Complete one stage of the Kurage Sushi Bar to get started on the path to Sushi Mastery!
Rewards: 40 Life points, 150 Coins, 40 XP, 3 Energy, Kurage Tealcove
Congratulations, young grasshopper!
