While The Sims may be one of the most popular gaming franchises of all time, the series still has yet to see an official tabletop adaptation despite being nearly 20 years old.
That’s why there’s all the more reason to finally make a board game based off of it, and the game’s rules and mechanics could mirror The Game of Life with a few twists.
From birth to death, players could guide their Sims through the trials and tribulations of life. They’d have to watch out for injuries and medical expenses, study to secure a well-paying job and otherwise try to make their Sims’ life the best it can possibly be.
Likewise, they could determine their Sims’ personalities. One could be book smart with a curiosity streak, while another could be simple but endlessly friendly.
These traits could then factor into whether they succumb to “accidents” caused by other players. Should an appliance randomly short circuit, smarter Sims could find a way to fix it while simpler Sims may end up being set ablaze when they try to use it.
It might test a few friendship and show who’d be the more cruel god figure, but it would be undeniably fun for anyone who manages to see their Sim through their life successfully.
