Halloween Special 2011: Jack's Private Winery
Uploaded 28th Oct 2011 at 1:59 PM · Updated 21st Mar 2013 at 8:29 AM by Yogi-Tea : links to pictures + walkthrough guide edited due to change of image + file host
A few years ago Emily had unexpectedly died by electrocution. After this tragic occurrence Jack wasn't seen downtown for a while. Among the townsfolk of Riverview a rumor persists that something "evil" was going on at Jack's house. They say that some people never came home from a wine tasting at Jack's Private Winery.
Just recently Jack's body was found by the paperboy. He lay upside down in the fish pond, firmly holding an ancient coin in his right hand. People say that Jack might tried to bribe the Grim Reaper with this valuable coin to save his life... obviously without success.
The police searched the house but couldn't find anything suspicious, except the fact that they weren't able to gain entry to the tower of the house. For some reason there was no visible door. The commissioner said that it was possible that there was a secret door that couldn't be found by the police.
It seems that the police needs a little help. Do you think your Sims are smarter than the police men who searched the house?
Important notes about this build:
I wanted to create something special for Halloween and so I made another house with hidden rooms. This time, however, there are more rooms for your Sims to explore. You'll find this small Adventure being easy to solve, I believe. If not, please have a look at the spoiler pictures below. These extra pictures are showing all floorplans with hidden rooms included - please only click on the spoiler buttons if you want to see that - if you don't want to spoil yourself, don't click one of these buttons below!
If you get stuck in this little adventure have a look at the Walkthrough Guide I made. Click here for the PDF file "Walkthrough_Halloween2011". Please leave a note in the comments if you need further help. Feedback is always highly appreciated.

This is my first build with a "Walk-in Basement" - it's not perfect (sorry about that) but I'm beginning to learn how it works - thanks to simsample and QBUILDERZ for their helpful pictures and instructions in the thread "Walk-in basements: Warning- PICTURE HEAVY THREAD".
Also, this is the first time I built a house with a split level. Once more I have to thank QBUILDERZ for a helpful thread: "Split-Level - Tutorial - How to Create Split Levels With and Without Warped Walls"
