1.3: Fool’s Mate


TS3 2017-02-24 09-11-59-52

Welcome back!  Last time, not much happened.  Lots of chess was played, Keely went around in her birthday suit and Amalia cheated on Douglas.

This is the second chapter after a marathon 12 hour play session

Fool’s mate: The shortest possible chess game ending in mate: 1.f3 e5 2.g4 Qh4# (or minor variations on this).

TS3 2017-02-24 08-45-21-47

Amalia:  You heard mom this morning, homework after school and then you do whatever you want.

Ariadne:  Fine, I had nothing better to do anyway.

TS3 2017-02-24 08-46-43-44

Bram:  At least you’re dressed today.

TS3 2017-02-24 08-46-55-53

Ariadne: So, are you going to get pregnant again and get that girl you’ve been dreaming about?

Amalia:  Maybe.

TS3 2017-02-24 08-48-40-88

TS3 2017-02-24 08-48-58-43

TS3 2017-02-24 08-50-33-33

Amalia:  I’m sick of losing, dammit.

TS3 2017-02-24 08-51-12-63

Brick finally learns something.

TS3 2017-02-24 08-51-37-75

She may fail at chess, but she almost has part of this LTW done.

TS3 2017-02-24 08-51-51-02

Brick:  You’re doing it wrong!

Bram:  Shup!

TS3 2017-02-24 08-52-28-57

Amalia:  Dammit!  I hate this game!

TS3 2017-02-24 08-53-18-48

TS3 2017-02-24 08-54-05-42

TS3 2017-02-24 08-54-16-99

Amalia:  How in the hell do I keep losing to someone who has no logic?  This is LAME!

TS3 2017-02-24 08-54-21-97

Amalia:  Take that!

Copper:  Geez, I thought you were going to keep me here for the rest of my life!

Amalia:  Get out.  You are not needed anymore.

TS3 2017-02-24 08-55-12-89

Amalia:  Oh, so that’s why I’ve been cranky so much lately.  I sure hope you’re a boy.

Wut?  But you want a girl!  It’s already locked in!

Amalia: Then lock in the boy too.  That way we I can have what I want either way.

TS3 2017-02-24 08-56-27-65

Brick:  Stay there, mommy, I want to go to bed too!

Walls down – woops

TS3 2017-02-24 09-06-25-26

It was too late to call the next opponent, so Amalia spent time on the telescope.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-10-26-73

Amalia:  Holy mother of God, what the hell happened to your face.

Keely:  Don’t be rude, Mal, she’s wonderful!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-10-32-41

Amalia: Of course, sorry about that.  Come on in and we can get the game started.

Ursula:  Thanks, let’s go and I sure hope you have some food handy, I’m starved.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-11-15-63

Ursula is randomly changing clothes.  I’m not sure if the game thinks she’s pregnant or not.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-11-33-50

Bram:  Who’s doing it wrong now?

Brick:  Shut up.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-13-49-48


TS3 2017-02-24 09-13-54-78

TS3 2017-02-24 09-13-55-97

Amalia continues to fail at chess.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-15-49-38

Tucker:  Omg, get dressed woman!

Keely:  This is my house too and if I want to run free, I will!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-16-04-44

Keely:  Further more, if you need help to an early grave, I can push you!

Ariadne:  Mother, get clothes on!  This is very disturbing!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-16-56-61


TS3 2017-02-24 09-19-43-51

There was even enough time to call up Story Moss, the next opponent.

I have no clue what the hell she’s wearing, but I made sure it was color coordinated when I gave her hair.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-21-06-77

Story:  Your mother forgot her clothing.

Amalia:  Yes, I’m contemplating bashing her in the head and hiding her in the basement.

Keely:  We don’t have a basement.

Amalia:  Give me a few minutes and it will appear from thin air.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-21-34-34

Bram maxes a skill toy.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-22-30-57

Story:  I think your kids are going to be scarred for life.

Amalia:  I think we all are at this point.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-25-58-70

Amalia:  Thanks for playing!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-27-52-84

I think Brick has learned all his skills now.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-28-56-10

Ursula:  Burnt spaghetti, my favorite!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-34-52-47

I think Amalia is playing Persimmon Peel, but I can’t quite remember.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-41-15-14

TS3 2017-02-24 09-41-29-85

We stop in with Magenta and her little girl Ada.  Cutie!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-43-51-74

We return home to find out Amalia beat her opponent in one game, a rare occurrence.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-43-57-83


TS3 2017-02-24 09-44-34-34

She has some free time, so she does a bit of cleaning while listening to a logic tabcast.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-46-16-45

Tucker’s betrayed moodlet is under eight hours, so he finally decides to sleep in the same bed as Keely.

Keely:  Everything is perfect now!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-48-15-02

Persimmon has been here almost 24 hours now.  She was enjoying the pool.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-48-38-00

Douglas is in the same room with the kids for the first time.

Bram:  Who’re you?  Stranger Danger!  MOMMY!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-49-05-53


TS3 2017-02-24 09-50-32-32

Ariadne:  I’m not sure I want a life as an artist, mom.  I don’t have an artistic bone in my body.

Keely:  Well, you could always do something else.  No one is stopping you.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-52-33-22

Amalia:  Mom, you’re dressed!  I can’t believe you have kept your clothes on for a full day!  I’m so proud of you.

Keely:  Well, now that your dad and I are sleeping in the same bed again, I’m super happy!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-53-31-61

His betrayed moodlet ran out and I thought he and Keely would be okay, I guess not.

Keely:  He divorced me?  But, but he slept with me for almost a full night!  *sob*

TS3 2017-02-24 09-54-26-98

Brennan goes down easy this time.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-55-55-90

Brennan:  That’ll teach your mother to cheat me out of a win.  Now shut up before someone hears you cry.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-56-05-20

Brennan:  What?  I didn’t do anything!  Leave me alone!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-56-32-71

Tucker:  Baby crying!

Keely:  I’m on the search for love and happier times.

Brennan:  There’s a baby crying.

Amalia: Don’t everyone get up at once.  I’ll get him.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-57-57-94

Merlot is back!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-58-04-57

TS3 2017-02-24 09-58-38-82

Keely:  That Merlot REALLY gets my motor running!

Brennan:  Run, Merlot, run fast!

Tucker:  Yeah, like a hellhound is on your ass!

TS3 2017-02-24 09-58-53-31

Persimmon was behaving inappropriately according to everyone in the house.

TS3 2017-02-24 09-59-08-19

Bram is all skilled up!

TS3 2017-02-24 10-00-05-53


Amalia:  Again!

TS3 2017-02-24 10-00-18-90


TS3 2017-02-24 10-00-41-87

Merlot:  I really need to leave for work soon.

Amalia:  No!  You have to stay until I win!

Tucker:  Dear God, what have they been feeding the boys?

TS3 2017-02-24 10-05-56-85

Tucker:  So, Merlot, before you leave, I must know…what’s your sign?

Why is this a new thing?  Weirdos.

TS3 2017-02-24 10-06-12-46

TS3 2017-02-24 10-06-14-54

Holy shit, he is worth something!

TS3 2017-02-24 10-17-10-61

Brenna:  Hello, everyone.  I am here for the party!

Do you ever get tired of sniffing your upper lip?  That nose is amazing!

TS3 2017-02-24 10-18-45-93

Butterscotch:  Quit cancelling our trip to the bed!  I want to woohoo my woman!

I forgot they were still romantic interests!  The girl with the white hair is Peach Puff, Aric’s wife.  Brenna and Ace have broken up with each other, but still live in the same house.

TS3 2017-02-24 10-22-36-04

Aric:  *brushbrushbrush*

TS3 2017-02-24 10-24-03-05

Brenna:  I can’t believe I was cheated on.

She then proceeds to cry the rest of the night.  I have no freaking clue who cheated on her or who they cheated with.

TS3 2017-02-24 10-24-28-62

Miss Honor Roll goes first.

TS3 2017-02-24 10-24-47-80

Brick goes next.

TS3 2017-02-24 10-24-59-66

Butterscotch:  I guess I better go to the party instead of waiting here for sexy times.

TS3 2017-02-24 10-35-47-12

TS3 2017-02-24 10-25-31-35

Of course she just got more beautiful.  She also has decent-ish traits.  Her LTW is Heartbreaker.

TS3 2017-02-24 10-38-16-21

Amalia:  Oh crap.

TS3 2017-02-24 10-38-33-51

Brick gains Neat.

I missed his pic because of Amalia going into labor.

TS3 2017-02-24 10-53-16-93

Tucker:  I don’t care that you’re married to my son, I think you’re hot!

Aric:  The art in this house has only gotten better with age!

Amalia:  Why couldn’t the baby wait until after I had cake.  Waaahhh!

TS3 2017-02-24 10-53-36-70

Stay tuned!  More coming up including Brick’s age up pick and the baby, which better be a girl since that’s what Amalia has wanted for over a week and she already has two boys.

Nothing bad happened this time around!

Ah, this is about the time that Copper was getting all his logic points during his match.






ts3-2017-02-24-09-15-23-36 ts3-2017-02-24-09-15-26-08


Are they together or aren’t they?  i don’t think even they know.


Riff Raff is a daddy!


Oh and he pays is support, what a good daddy!


Aww, another new baby!


Brennan Skipton: The Town Bike Chronicles.  Well, he would be if I had that SP module in.  It takes up way too much memory to run that shit all the time.


I don’t think Mikado can make up his mind either.




He stuck with one girl for 24 hours?  Amazing!




Aww, Magenta’s little girl is remembered by Lolly.  I think that is her aunt.



Wut?  My game now shows everyone as Bicurious.  Great.


Aric and Peach: Together 4ever.


No!  They love each other and I think they have a baby.


Magenta:  Trying to steal the bike title from Brennan.


I swear, Malcolm NEVER goes to school.

  1. I am loving the themes for your chapter titles; learning so much about chess, lol!

    OMG, I have the same issue with simmies hooking up all over town. I swear, I can get to most of the town just clicking portaits in the family tree. Must be something in the SP settings. Mew Terrey is the bike atm (without the module). But glad to see some Rourkes breeding and having fun, especially Magenta, she’s one of my favourites.

    But back to the actual family, Ariadne is my new favourite. I may have to grab her for a future spouse option for…something. Running out of Rourke gens to play with, but she’ll be in something, I swear.

    The chess games are *so* random, I can never figure out why sims win or lose. But it looks like Amalia is doing very well, top is rank 5, so she’s close!

    • Riff Raff has two kids, but one was a baby I think and the wife/girlfriend is still pregnant. I went through all my stranded couples and moved them all in together. It went better than expected and only a couple moved out and broke up. Riff Raff is happily living with his family and I finally got rid of his issue of paying child support to his fiance, which is lame. I love Ariadne. I have her in something new that I have barely started. She is my favorite too. I sort of wish I had waited and her as heiress, but she was the unwanted child, and I kept with the original three.
      I have no clue about chess. I have the chess term wiki open for titles. I only know the horsie can go in an “L” shape. Otherwise, I’m too stupid for a game like that.
      I have the kids from black gen saved, but not uploaded. I need to do that. I never figured out the chess wins/losses. I swear she lost to Brennan four or five times in a row.

      • That’s a good idea about the stranded couples, I should do that. I rarely go into Edit Town once I’ve set everything up, should help out the townies more often.
        I think I remember how the pieces move, but that’s about it, I was always terrible. Can’t think more than one move ahead, which the game requires. I much prefer games where I can just laugh when things go terribly 😉
        At least Amalia doesn’t have the Loser trait – it’s one of the ones that makes the Chess Legend LTW roll up, and makes things so much harder.

      • I actually never go into edit town either. I write down all the stranded couples and use MC to check their family trees and connect the fiancés and girlfriends on paper. Then I use MC to add sims to the household. A Alia got lucky having semi-decent traits, that’s for sure.
