Welcome to The Sims 2! Part 40

Saturday, August 14, 2004 - 23:00

Greetings Sims Fans,

Did you accidentally pour orange juice in your cereal this morning or salt in your coffee? Did your neighbor's orange tabby take on a darker, decidedly more jet-black appearance when it crossed your path on the way out the door? Have you locked your car keys inside your running vehicle, or spent time recently lounging beneath ladders? If you're beginning to wonder whether or not the whole world has it in for you, take a look at your calendar. That's right – it's that dreaded day of misfortune, Friday the 13th.

While you're pondering your ability to safely navigate through this, the unluckiest of days, it's always good to have a plan to keep you out of harm's way. Keep sudden movements to a minimum. Don't travel. Surround yourself with pillows and other plush items. No running with scissors. While it's ultimately your responsibility to spirit yourself safely through today, we suggest that you spend the next Friday the 13th parked in front of your computer, basking in the safe and inviting world of The Sims 2. In fact, we encourage you to take it a step further and deflect the damaging physical and psychological effects of Friday the 13th away from you, and on to your hapless Sims all day long.

In fact, there are nearly unlimited ways for you to engineer, or simply suffer through, a terrifically horrible day for your Sims, from a series of minor inconveniences to indulging in their fears. Your bad day can involve minor offenses, like an embarrassing body odor problem at a dignified social gathering, or major bummers the like of which you can see in today's special link.

Introducing Strangetown's very own Nervous Subject. Watch as he struggles to get through Friday the 13th unscathed. Even for this hapless Sim, who is regularly treated to cruel and unusual experiments by the Beaker Family (all in the name of science, and the occasional odd spot of fun), the trials of Friday the 13th may prove to be too much.

Stay away from ladders & black cats!
