To start out:

Make as many Sims as you would like in CAS. The challenge will move quicker if you make them all adults as your Sim can only steal 3 things a night.

They may wear whatever you'd like, and they can have whatever traits you choose with the exception of one must be the kleptomaniac trait.

Next, when you are happy with your Sims, you may choose a house or a lot.
It must not be furnished!

You may build just the shell of your house, if you choose to build it. You may buy flooring, windows, doors and wallpaper (or paint) as you'd like.

You may only have items per room as follows:

One Refrigerator
One Stove
One light
One sink

Living room:
No furniture except a light

One bed per Sim
One light per bedroom

One tub/shower
One toilet
One light

When you are ready to set your thieves free, pick a house to target. I chose my neighbor because it was close but you can target whoever house you'd like. Once you have chosen, you must only go to that house to steal. No jumping around the neighborhood!

To make your Sim steal, it must be after 7pm. I made my Sims go over at 6 so they'd be there by 7. When you arrive and get invited inside, you must go where there are no Sims, such as a room. Once there click anywhere on the floor and you should see a pie menu option to "Swipe Something..." You cannot control what your Sim takes. Young Adult Sims can take up to three items per night, while teens can only take two. Head home when you are done.

You can find what your Sims stole in the family inventory bin. (It's located in the buy mode, its a box icon on the lowest tab) Place as you like. Keep doing this until you have their whole house in yours!

Extra Rules:
You may not enter buy mode at any time (except to access your inventory).

You may enter build mode only to install windows, flooring, doors, walls, and to paint or wallpaper.

Your Sim may work but you may not spend the money on furnishings.

 Your Sim must not return any stolen goods. Even if it shows up in their wants.

You can consider the challenge passed when you have everything from your target house!

  1. So... we are allowed everything BUT what the article says?

    1. Hi,

      In the post above, where it says "You may only have items per room as follows", that shows all the items you're allowed to start your sim with per room (that's all the items.. and nothing else is allowed), If you want more items (in this challenge), then you'll have to steal it (from your neighbor .. or whatever house you choose to steal from).

      Hope this helps.

  2. EXAMPLE: One of my 6 sims (Let's say it was Jessica Southern) steals, uh, let's say a dining chair. My household doesn't need any more dining chairs. Would I be able to sell that chair for Simoleons? (The reason why I am worrying about selling items is because I want to keep using my family and expanding, even when the challenge is completed)

    1. Sure... you would be able to sell that chair (or any other item), for Simoleons... it's really up to you.

      Hope that helps.
