All About Joining The Chess Team in The Sims 4 High School Years

Everything you need to know about how to become Chess Team Captain in The Sims 4!

The Sims 4 High School Years comes with four brand new after-school activities for your teen Sims to join: Cheer Team, Football Team, Chess Team, and Computer Team.

We’re going to be walking you through joining and excelling in the Chess Team!

Joining the Chess Team

Sims 4 Chess Team Member - Career Option

To join the Chess Team, use the phone or a computer to sign up for an after-school activity. Then select Chess Team from the available choices. Signing up for an after-school activity will be under the Business app on your cell phone, or the new High School category on a computer.

Chess Team runs from 3:30pm to 5:30pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Chess Team is treated like a rabbithole career. Unlike the Football and Cheerleading Teams, there aren’t a lot of active elements to this activity. Make sure your Sim is at home and not at school when Chess Team starts so they can leave the lot to enter the rabbithole destination.

You’ll start out as a fresh recruit and will have to play chess between all your Chess Team meetings in order to advance in this activity. Chess Team is tied to the Logic skill which can be built by playing chess so you can take care of both activity requirements at the same time.

Chess Team Levels and Rewards

The Chess Team has three promotion levels and each level comes with new rewards.

1) Chess Team Fresh Recruit

  • Description: [Sim Name] has a lot to learn, but he’s/she’s/they’re on his/her/their way! Time to brush up on logic skill and chess practice. That should really help [Sim Name] also learn how to keep a straight face while playing.
  • Advancement Tasks:
    • Reach Level 2 Logic Skill
  • Daily Task:
    • Play Chess
  • Rewards:
    • N/A

2) Chess Teammate

  • Description: [Sim Name] is getting the hang of this. Now, the giggles have subsided and the game starts to get more serious. It almost becomes enchanting and he/she/they is/are starting to gain major respect with the other team players. Keep up the logic and practice and captain might not be a joke any longer.

Chess Team Science Fair

While in Chess Team, you can use the phone under the Business app to schedule a science fair. The fair can’t be scheduled on the same day as the football or cheer sports days. When you schedule a science fair, it will happen the next day at 5pm in the high school football field.

The event is the same as the sports days, except there’s chess tables and a logic puzzle competition. Unfortunately, it was a very underwhelming experience for us. Our Sim with maxed Logic Skill sat down at the chess table to do the puzzle and just stared into space until the end. She of course didn’t win due to never having finished the puzzle.

This is definitely an event you can skip. You aren’t missing much.
