CONCEPT AND RULES

Whoever said opposites don't attract? Well I guess we're gonna find out!

Our "Polar Opposites" Challenge should prove to be a bit difficult and we're sure amusing!
_____________________________

Here's what you need to do to join in:

Create 2 Sims with complete opposite traits that are part of the same household.

You can create either opposite or same sex households...but before you do, check the goals below for the challenge!

STEP ONE

Create your first YA Sim with any of the 5 below traits.

Traits NOT listed below can NOT be used! The list below gives you the traits that oppose each other.

Absent Minded > Perceptive
Adventurous > Couch Potato
Artistic > Can't Stand Art
Athletic > Couch Potato
Brave > Coward
Can't Stand Art > Artistic, Savvy Sculptor
Charismatic > Loser
Childish > Dislikes Children
Commitment Issues > Hopeless Romantic
Computer Whiz > Technophobe
Daredevil > Coward
Disciplined > Couch Potato
Dislikes Children > Childish, Family Oriented, Nurturing
Easily Impressed > Snob
Evil > Good
Excitable > Grumpy
Family Oriented > Dislikes Children
Flirty > Unflirty, Shy
Friendly > Mean Spirited
Good > Evil
Good Sense of Humor > No Sense of Humor
Grumpy > Hot Headed, Excitable
Hates the Outdoors > Loves the outdoors
Heavy Sleeper > Light Sleeper
Hot Headed > Grumpy
Loner > Party Animal
Loser > Brave, Charismatic
Neat > Slob

-Once you have the traits assigned, pick a Lifetime Wish from the list of 5 presented
-Add a bit of intrigue and pick one you have never tried before!
-DO NOT choose a custom LTW!!! You must use one of the 5 in the presented list!
-You may change traits while still in CAS

STEP TWO

Create your second YA Sim in the same household using the "polar opposite" traits that you used for the first Sim.

-Use the list above to determine the polar opposite of the first Sim.
-Once you have the traits assigned, pick a Lifetime Wish from the list of 5 presented
-Add a bit of intrigue and pick one you have never tried before!
-DO NOT choose a custom LTW!!! You must use one of the 5 in the presented list!
-You may change traits while still in CAS
______________________________

Example of how your traits should look once you are done creating your Sims.

Note that there are no identical traits between them! They are complete opposites!

Sim A: Commitment Issues, Perceptive, Can't Stand Art, Grumpy, Light Sleeper
Sim B: Hopeless Romantic, Absent Minded, Artistic, Hot Headed, Heavy Sleeper

Sim A LTW: Pervasive Private Eye
Sim B LTW: Star News Anchor

-This is just an example, you can use whichever traits you like from the above list as long as they are polar opposites when done!

-Once your Sims are created, move them to the Bin as Housemates
