The Apocalypse Challenge


This legacy challenge was originally written by Pinstar in 2004 for The Sims 2 ( Pinstar's Original Sims 2 Apocalpse Challenge is now being maintained by the Apocaborg Pinstar and ImagineMystic have a new blog, as well, if you want to pop in and see what they are up to). I spent many tense, yet happy, hours anguishing over whether my sim would live till midnight so she could eat! In 2009, simmer Ashleigh825 tweaked the rules to reflect The Sims 3 (Ashleigh's Apocalypse Challenge Thread .). I included and have updated Ashleigh's rules to include all Expansion Packs. Thanks, Ash, for the hard work you put into the original rewrite!

I would like to present to you now, my own update of the rules for play with The Sims 3 and all it's expansions. I hope I have stayed within Pinstar's original vision for the challenge. I know I'm looking forward to playing it!

Without further ado .... The Apocalypse Challenge

Shameless plug for money
Wikispaces is great - it gives us far more flexibility in maintaining The Sims 3 Apocalypse Challenge than Wikia did.... but that flexibility comes at a price. The site costs $5 a month to maintain. If you enjoy the challenge and want to help keep this site up and running, please consider a donation of a few dollars for maintenance.

I will have a PayPal link up soon for anyone who wants to lend a hand. In the mean time, you can email me at mikitta@hughes.net or send me a PM on our Facebook Page with "Donate to TS3AC" in the subject line. Thank you in advance for helping!
