TSM Chess

Early versions of chess were played as far back as the middle ages.

Chess has been in the Sims universe from The Sims, through The Sims 2 and into The Sims 3. It also makes an appearance in The Sims Medieval.

It's one of the easiest ways for Sims to increase their Logic skill. It also provides Fun, and since two Sims can play, it can fulfill Social needs as well. Children can play, and in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3, will gain Logic skill by playing. In The Sims 2: FreeTime, playing chess builds enthusiasm for the Games hobby.

Two Sims playing chess will play a game. If allowed to run its course, it will end when one of them wins. In The Sims 2, mean Sims may attempt to cheat by distracting the other player. If caught, the other player's relationship with the mean Sim will drop. In The Sims 2, chess is popular among Knowledge Sims. Chess tables are also available at most parks in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3. In The Sims: Hot Date, some Downtown lots have chess tables.

In The Sims 3, a Sim can play a game of chess with the Grim Reaper to save another Sim's life.

Notes

  • In The Sims 2, a minor graphical glitch may occur after a Sim stops playing. If the Sim stops at the wrong moment, his or her left arm may become stuck in a half-raised position. This does not affect gameplay, it just looks strange. It can be corrected by having the Sim play again, waiting until the left arm is lowered, then having the Sim stop playing.
  • In The Sims 3, if a Sim loses, he/she may knock the pieces off the table (Note: The pieces do not have actual models while on the ground, and just disappear from the table)
