The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Storyteller


This is another time limited hobby, if you complete in 7 days you unlock the campfire


Who can be a storyteller?

Teens, adults and seniors

Only one sim can do this hobby at a time.

TIP: to complete in the time limit you can send another sim to a neighbours town to do the hobby

How can you be a storyteller?

You need to complete the survivalist hobby, then open the bridge, clean the area and click on the storyteller chair by the campfire


Where can you be a storyteller?

At the campgrounds

What are the storyteller option?

Tell a comedy story- 3 hours 30 minutes

Tell a romance story- 4 hours 30 minutes

Tell an action story- 5 hours 30 minutes

Tell a scary story- 6 hours 30 minutes

The first time you complete you have to find all 3 stories in one row before you can move onto the next, so you need to find all 3 comedy stories before you will able to do the romance story option.

What storyteller levels are there?

  1. Spinner of yawns
  2. B movie narrator
  3. Worthy entertainer
  4. Captivating teller
  5. Master tear jerker
  6. Memorable performer

What stories are there to collect?



What do you win?

The first time you have 7 days to complete to unlock the campfire pack, which can be found in the outdoor decorations section and costs S20,000. You can turn it on/off, roast marshmallows for 5 minutes or warm up for 10 minutes



If you don’t complete in time you still unlock the tents, deer meadow and canoe.



Deer Meadow





Further times you receive 3LPs

I can’t find one of the stories, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs, it would be cheaper just to speed up the option instead of using a lucky spin.

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start a new collection on the list to start over.

  1. Finally finished the survivalist hobby! Phew! Just building the bridge and I’ll get on with storytelling.

  2. You mention it’s better to speed up rather than using dice/LP’s for story telling. How do you speed up? I keep getting Kung Fu and I’m running out of time! Thanks.

  3. Are the percentages different between the different storyteller actions? For example: if the action stories give you 15% experience to the next level, do the romance stories give you the same percentage of experience, or is it lower because it takes less time?

  4. I have been telling the same romantic story for 2 days now. I can’t tell if this is a bug in my game, or not… but it’s really frustrating and I just don’t see how I’m going to complete in time! Same thing happened with the Jester – I was doing ‘bard’ for what seemed like eternity! Anybody experiencing the same thing?

  5. How do I get two sims in the canoe for a romantic ride

  6. Hi! I was wondering if you had to complete the hobby in the timelimit for the canoe, tents and Deer meadow?

  7. Hello to the best ever gamer blogger – your site is literally life saving for all us sims free play addicts😁big congrats! I accidentally pressed not now when the option prompted. What do I do now? Can I still start at a later time since I am really busy now & complete it in time for the prize ? Does this work in general, I mean is it possible to start a hobby at your own time and still complete it within 7 days and get the prize? And a last thing, how can I add neighbors? Thank you for your time😊

  8. I’ve been doing the story teller hobby for almost 2 months now….still stuck on the Zombie story! Has anyone else had this problem??!!

  9. I did not get the campfire. I had one sim in my town and the other in another town to get the task done. I rolled the dice on the last one and it was with the sim that was not in my town. Is this why i did not get it? I finished in time!

  10. I am completing one of the weekly quests, and one of the tasks is to roast marshmallows at the campgrounds. Well, I did not complete the quest in time to have access to the “special fire” that can roast marshmallows. Looks like the only way to complete the task is to spend LPs and skip the task…any advice?

  11. Hello! Your blog is amazing! One question, if you don’t finish the storytelling in the time limit, do you not get the campfire at the campgrounds either?

  12. Hi, you are doing a great job. I hope you are feeling better now after losing your game. Just wondered if you had any suggestions? I started the storytelling hobby and used over 100 lp’s to get my sim to the start of level 5. I set it on the 6 and a half hour task and went to bed. In the morning it said that all the campfires were gone but I could still get the other prizes. I still had 7 days to go! I used all those lp’s so I could get the campfire. I have put in a ticket to FM so we’ll see but do you have any suggestions. I am saved to the cloud 21 hours ago, before the incident, but am afraid to delete and reinstall. So much for wanting something eh!

    • Unfortunately you will just have to wait for them to reply, this seems to be happening a lot recently and only they will be able to fix it for you as this is a technical issue, sorry!

  13. Didn’t really think anything could be done but to get FM to help. They did get back to me and they put the campfire into my home store. The wait was just under 3 days, so that was good. Keep up the great job you are doing!

  14. mine is just messed up. it’s said that the story teller hobbies time up. but i just started 2 days a go. now im crying. I DO REALLY WANT THE CAMPFIRE.

    • A lot of people are having this glitch at the moment on timed hobby events, you will need to contact EA about this so they can sort this out for you as I am unable to fix technical issues.

  15. I started story teller today and my game glitched and was over in 9 hours.

    • A lot of people are having this glitch at the moment on timed hobby events, you will need to contact EA about this so they can sort this out for you as I am unable to fix technical issues.

  16. This is probably the easiest timed hobby to complete. If you have two sims doing it at the same time the expected time needed to complete the collection is only 55 hours. The format of the collection makes its variance much smaller as well, i.e. it’s much more unlikely the time you have to spend is way longer (or shorter) than the expected time needed.
