College Kings Keep all HOCO options open

This guide focuses on the path MC could follow to be able to ask any of the available girls for homecoming. Any of the 8 options bar Aubrey and Autumn will accept if you will follow these actions. Tested multiple times. This walkthrough is for both Wolves and Apes pledges.

Keep all HOCO options open

This guide purely focuses on how MC keeps all his options open for the homecoming party in the same run. Autumn and Aubrey can be asked but won’t accept, there is no way to convince them.
The other 6 girls should accept when following this guide step by step. This is just 1 way to achieve it, so feel free to follow a different path. Beware however that certain actions might lock out one or more girls. I added a walkthrough for both Apes and Wolves. The actions however are similar until MC has to make a decision which frat he wants to pledge to (on day 9).

A few important tips:

  • Don’t take actions that might upset a girl
  • Do not enter in a relationship with Lauren when you first get the opportunity, postpone this until the last meeting before HOCO
  • Avoid having sex with Emily as this would lead to Emily posting a picture of her and MC on Kiwii and some girls believing MC and Emily are again in a relationship. Penelope and Lauren will be upset.
  • Rack up bro points as much as you can, keep the BF (boyfriend) and TM (troublemaker) points in balance so your KCT is either loyal or popular as those are the ones that matter at a few moments in the game. However I don’t know if you will need the confident status in later chapters to get with later potential girlfriends or fwb’s. I haven’t encountered any problems however with getting in bed with for example Nora and Lindsey in act 3 just by supporting them at every opportunity that was given.

Reminder of how KCT is defined

Bro points lowest = confident
BF points lowest = popular
TM points lowest = loyal

Since the game currently does not keep track of the amount of each points in the KCT categories you score, I’ll add them at the start of each new day. There are mods that can do this but might not always be up to date. Also the path builder can be a help when you decide to get notifications for KCT points but this means you still have to keep track of them manually. I have also seen that the notifications do not always get displayed or sometimes stop working when scrolling back and forth.

Tested this with a modded version, the steam version with path builder and the steam version without path builder and this all resulted in the same outcome. I don’t have the Patreon version so I can’t guarantee it will work for that too but I assume it will.

Asking for HOCO

The 8 possibilities will be

  • Aubrey: she will say she is feeling flattered but prefers the secrecy of their FWB relationship. She will be avalaible for quite a bit of sex scenes later on. In act 3 she even seems to be open for a more romantic relationship.
  • Autumn: she is clearly not into the HOCO thing and turns you down. Also in later parts interaction between MC and Autumn is very limited. It’s unclear if she ever becomes a romantic or sexual option for MC.
  • Amber: she will say she doesn’t do dances so taking her to HOCO is not a possibility. However if your KCT is popular (will be if you followed the guide lol) she will invite MC to come to her place. It will end up with a sex scene. The good thing about that is that you don’t need to worry any more about your KCT status any more to have sex with Amber at later opportunities. If you took someone else to HOCO and want to get a chance to have sex with Amber at a later point you will need to make sure your KCT will be popular until the night at Josh’s place after the drugs deal. Romancing her no I don’t think that will be on the cards in the near future if ever.
  • Emily: she will end up drunk and sick so you can’t take her home. However if you are understanding she will try to make it up with you by a visit to the arcade and at a later moment offering her body. However it seems a reuniting with Emily seems doomed to fail. So when leaving the party Riley will take MC to her home for some wild sex.
  • Penelope: MC will drop her of at her place and they kiss goodbye. There won’t change much in this relationship in later parts. There will be plenty of hugs and kisses between MC and Penelope but a real sex scene it remains to be seen if that will ever be possible. However it’s clear Penelope really sees MC as husband material. So after dropping of Penelope MC will end the night in Riley’s bed.
  • Chloe: taking Chloe home MC gets treated to a BJ but when he wants to return the favour they are interrupted by Lindsey whose mother died in an accident. Encounters with Chloe in later parts are fairly limited. If you want Chloe to be MC’s official girlfriend meeting up with her at the swimming pool and ending HOCO with her is a must. It also seems the only way to have sex with her at later opportunities (once in act 2 and twice in act 3 if you pick her as MC’s roommate at least).
  • Lauren: ending HOCO with her won’t lead to sex but lots of cuddling . It’s clear from the start that Lauren likes to take things slow and appreciates loyalty from her bf. In act 2 she opens a little giving MC a taste of her boobies. Stick by her and don’t take Aubrey’s invitation to have sex on the plane. In the Harry Potter I mean Hotter Parry contest she will totally fall for MC. This will lead to a romantic evening and steaming sex in Paris. Another bonus is that she is becoming more adventurous and is like the only one not taking ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ from Charli. With Lauren you can be sure you’ll have a loyal partner at your side even when MC eventually would decide to pledge for the Apes.
  • Riley: do I need to say again that ending HOCO with Riley will lead to sex even if you were that foolish to turn down her unfinished business invitation the previous night. Even though there are plenty of hints that Riley is open to more than just being a friend and FWB, there won’t be an option in later acts so far to officially date her. Riley is bound to become MC’s bestie. It’s obvious that her close friendship with Aubrey and later Amber is going to lead to act upon her lesbian and bisexual desires. For a threesome with a boy and girl, MC can be sure he will be the chosen one. MC is for Riley the only guy who she feels comfortable enough with to share her deepest secrets, desires and emotions. On top of that she is the most caring character in the game.


  • Despite having enough options MC can still decide to go alone to HOCO. Opting for this he can only end the night with either Riley or Chloe. Going alone however does kind of defeat the purpose of this guide.
  • Taking Lauren, Penelope or Emily to HOCO MC can still decide to go home with either Chloe or Riley. I’m not sure what kind of consequences this will have in MC’s relationship with the girl he took to HOCO as I haven’t tried. I would assume that Lauren definitely isn’t go the be pleased. Honestly you gotta be a jerk to do that to her.
  • Taking Chloe to HOCO MC can still go home with Riley and the other way around too. I’m pretty sure if MC would choose Riley over Chloe at the last moment he can forget about dating Chloe in the future.

So the only girl you actually have to make a choice to confirm being your HOCO partner is Amber. So when she is asks MC to spend the night at her place: Alright I’m in (TM).
