SIMS 4 gameplay has given me a new opportunity to connect with readers using video. Creating GIG PowHer characters in the SIMS4 adds a fun element to developing characters. Gameplay and Let’s Play challenges are part of the SIMS 4 lore. None of the challenges really fit the stories, sentiment, and characters from the GIG PowHer Book so, here is the PowHered Up SIMS challenge. The rules have been updated to support inclusive gameplay for all SIMs. 

 2023 PowHered Up SIMS Challenge Rules:

Rule 1:

Achieve career aspirations if the career is in the game. If the career is not in the game max out all the trait-based aspirations.

Rule 2:

Must do at least one activity that increases fitness.

Rule 3:

Must take at least one trip with the “best friend” every season. If a loner SIM who prefers to recharge with alone time, have the SIM go on a solo trip. 


Rule 4:

Unless at work, if the best friend or a SIM from the friend group calls to invite the SIM out before 7 PM, the SIM has to go.

Rule 5:

If the SIM is married, the couple has to go on at least two dates every season.

Rule 6:

If the SIM is a parent, the SIM has to go on at least one outing with each child. 

Rule 7:

A family outing in addition to the one-on-one fun with each child if married with more than one child. 

Rule 8:

Single SIMS with or without children can only go on one date per season until one aspiration is complete. No commitments until the SIM achieves an aspiration.
