What to do

You need to place haunted decorations into your Sim's home; look for the items with a red ghost icon next to it in the Home Store. You can place as many items as you want. Once you place an item, tap on it to receive the option 'Search for ghosts'.

The time varies depending on the star rating of that item:

  • 1 star item -- 3 minutes 30 seconds
  • 2 star item -- 3 minutes 9 seconds
  • 3 star item -- 2 minutes 48 seconds

When the time is up, tap on the red ghost bubble over your Sim's head. A ghost will show up; tap on it three times and you will receive either XP, Simoleons or LP from that ghost.

You need to collect all 18 ghosts to complete the whole grid. After ghost hunting, the item will recharge. You need to wait for the item to finish charging until you can use it again.
