The Sims 4 Decades Challenge is a trip through the years. It’s a great choice for anyone who is looking for a fresh method of playing the game

The rules are simple and easy to follow! All you need to do is look through each decade starting from the 1890s to the year 2010. 

The decade will decide how your Sims will be. It is a transitional decade each time your family’s first child turns into an adult.

So what are the rules of the Decades Challenge?

As you’ve probably suspected, in The Sims 4 Decades Challenge, each decade comes with an entirely different set of rules. 

Your Sims are bound by these rules for the entire period. When their child reaches old age, they can choose to follow the laws of the new decade.
