The Sims Mobile team recently released the 11.0.0 version of The Sims Mobile game. This new version provides bug fixes and new addition to the game. A new feature in The Sims Mobile game called "A Surprising Choice" will definitely excite every Sims player out there. Let's find out why it is surprisingly good!

What is A Surprising Choice?

You will encounter a moment or a cutscene where in you need to select certain reaction towards the story outlined by your Sim. Every option given will have a reward such as limited discount, objects or boost. Rewards are shown in each option so you just need to select one to pursue. Some option requires you to spend SimCash or Cupcake so choose wisely.

How to Encounter

Once you've reached Player Level 10, this feature will automatically unlock in your game. The appearance of the "A Surprising Choice" moment is quite random. This will sometimes appear after completing an event, change location or after a party.

How to Complete

After the event's title, there will be a short conversation between your Sims that will serve as an outline of their story. It can be something about their hobby, career or any story relevant to them.

You will see three options to choose from. Options can be a boost for XP, limited edition objects from previous events or discounts in the catalog.

Boosts and discount are both limited time only. Each option has an equivalent price tag. You can use your cupcake, Simoleons, or SimCash. Choose wisely as this may empty your pocket.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that gets very annoyed by these so-called 'awesome' surprising choices. I'm trying very hard to save up cupcakes but every time I'm forced to spend them. And today I accidentally spent 100 Simcash that took so long to save up. It can't be gone soon enough for me.

I refuse to let my Sim be blackmailed into steaking from her boss. I've closed the game, every now and then I may check to see if the "choice" thing has been removed, but until it is, I will just have to find other games to play. It amazes me that the developers think it was a good idea to punish people for playing as decent human beings, and I wonder how many other players will quit flat out because of their stupidity....
The element of surprising choice is horrible. I have to pay to be a good friend. 100 sim cash to attend my best friend's birthday party?! Not only can I not tell her that I want to come but because I cannot afford it I can't attend and I hope that she will understand, I have to select an option that hurts her feelings. My friends hate me and I love alone. But at least I saved simoleons by working nonstop and my house is starting to look pretty nice. Well. Thanks mobile. I want an option where we can opt out of these politely if possible. It's just sad.

*spellcheck opps live alone not love alone. But basically accurate because these surprising choices keep me from having anyone love my character because she is simply too poor.
Stupid Choice
Yes, Surprising Choice is quite lame. There is no benefit that outweighs or even equals the cost associated with it. What a dumb thing to implement, lol.

Agree. Hate it. I accidentally paid the 50 sim dollars by mistake. So frustrating. What a waste.
I hope they remove it, I hate it.

Now im so "suprise" with the "suprise choices".tq but i dont need the suprise.please solve it.
Fix this!!!
Since the suprise choices thing started I lost my Lvl 37 Sims characters because I'd finally had it with the green spinning diamond stuck screen. Started a second character set...same thing..Started a third new set it was going well and wham stuck on the stupid spinning diamond screen yet again. If this isn't fixed I don't think anyone will continue to try or start over anymore.
Hopefully they will remove 'surprising choice'. It will force simmers to spend their hard-earned sim cash and cupcakes. And it will get stuck on surprising choice screen and you can't do anything about it and stare at that screen. Unable to remove or exit from the screen. My game is now stuck on that screen, and i can't play it anymore. I'm on lvl40 already and i miss my sims.
Just had this problem since 12am 7/18/18. Just learned that a lot of people are having this trouble. I'm on lvl 40 and played it a lot almost everyday. It pissed me off when my screen got stuck on that surprising choice. Which is a very annoying surprise for forcing others on wasting their cupcakes, sim cash and coins. Hopefully this will get solve. Or they can just remove their annoying updated of 'surprising choice'.
My app is locked on this screen for 2 days now. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and checked for other options but cant get it to reset
Wow... Thought it was just me but find out a lot of people are stuck on this Surprise Choice screen. I hope it's fixed soon. I see some people posting is been days and they can't get in! I've only been locked out for hours and I'm so not happy.
