This Post Is All About The Sims 4 Challenges List

1. 100 Baby Challenge

From the title, it seems like quite a straightforward challenge, because basically, your goal is to have 100 babies in as few generations as possible.

There are a few catches though, your female sims can’t have a baby with the same male sim more than twice, so you will need to have plenty of male sims on hand.

You must also have your sim set to normal lifespan and ageing on. (But don’t worry once your sim becomes an elder providing their youngest daughter is a Young Adult you can have them take over and continue the challenge)

Your sim can be employed but must either be self-employed or do a job where they work from home.

With this challenge, cheats and mods can’t be used, this makes it more challenging and interesting.

This mod has a plethora of rules so be sure to read through them and keep them to hand while you’re playing this challenge.

2. Not So Berry 2.0

Remember the “Not So Berry’ challenge from  @lilsimsie and @alwaysimming, well this is an updated version.

It is still based around the original challenge where you have 10 generations based on different colours, just some of the other aspects of the challenge have been updated slightly.

What the video below to find all the ins and outs of the challenge.

3. Rags to Riches

In this challenge, you start with nothing, no money in the bank, and no possessions.

You must then work your way up to becoming rich. This might sound simple, but along the way, there are a bunch of challenges that your sim must complete.

Then if you want to spice things up and make it more challenging for your self there are some optional challenges that you can complete as well.

4. Black Widow Challenge

In this challenge, you play a sim whose goal is to kill off 5 husbands, hence the name ‘Black Widow’. The end goal is to have the 5 ghosts of your deceased husbands living with you and complete the ‘Mansion Barron Aspiration’.

To make things more difficult your sim can not have a job, and can only make money from fishing, collecting, pumpkin carving and woodworking.

Their spouse can bring their household income with them, and if they work can continue to work. But these will be your only source of income. (So you best hope your sim picks rich men to move in so that they can complete the ‘Mason Barron Aspiration’)

5. Legacy Challenge

The legacy challenge is possibly one of the most well known and popular sims challenges.

The goal is to start with one sim usually a female sim on 50×50 lot or large and $1800 if doing the regular challenge or 0 if doing the extreme challenge.

You must then have that sim start building a life for the next generator so that will require earning money, building a house and meeting a guy to start the next generation with.

Then when you die the next generator will need to continue the legacy until you have completed 10 generations.

I’m yet to get past the 3rd generation as I’m forever restarting my game. But just start with new teen sims recently and hoping to complete a version of this so will update you if I managed to get past generation 3.

6. Decades Challenge


If you love history you’ll love this challenge. Your sim starts off in the 1890s and works their the decades up to the present day.

Each decade has a different set of rules as just like in history each decade would have been different from the next.

7. Homeless Challenge

We had this challenge in the Sims 3 and some amazing sims player has made a new version for the Sims 4.

Although there are a few do’s and don’ts of this challenge, the basic goal of this challenge is to have $5000 in the bank and a basic house. So although still quite challenging, this challenge would be a lot quicker to complete than some of the other challenges on this list.

8. Runaway Teen Challenge

You start on an empty lot with zero simoleans and then have to start earning money to build a shelter for yourself.

Then are a number of other requirements that are involved with this challenge like not being able to have a phone until you have 1 bed, 1 bath and a kitchen hut.

As you’re a teen on the run you can’t be seen by any adults you also can’t have a part-time or full-time job so will need to find other resourceful ways of making money.

There are also several other rules so read through them all before you start.

As I feel like when you start with a fresh YA made in CAS I feel there’s never enough time to achieve everything. So I loved to do a combination of this challenge and the legacy challenge. As I feel like when you start with a teen sim you get to do a lot more things with them before they age up.

9. Asylum Challenge

This is a sims 3 challenge that a sims player has remade for the sims 4.

You start with an 8-sim household and all sims have the insane trait. They cannot use the self-assured trait, but their other traits and aspiration should be randomized.

Then their goal of the challenge is to complete their aspiration so they can leave the asylum

10. Apocalypse Challenge

You start with a single founder sim which can be male or female of YA age or older on an empty lot and then have to rebuild civilisations, there are restrictions with that challenge that won’t be lifted until you’ve completed certain careers.

It’s too much to explain in this blog post so click on the link below to read more.

11. Prison Challenge

Have you ever wanted to make other Sim’s lives a misery? Then this is the challenge for you.

There are some set rules the basis of this challenge is to run a prison and have up to 15 prisoners at one time, have rehabilitated 10 prisoners and earned $60,000. Which will complete the main challenge.

But if you want to take things a bit further there is a bonus challenge and optional challenge. You may think this sounds quite a simple and fun challenge, but there is a chance of losing the challenge.

12. Batchelor or Bachelorette Challenge

Are you a big fan of the hit tv show the Bachelor or Bachelorette? Then this challenge is for you.

You start off with a single sim who is looking for love, they will go on a number of dates and hopefully find the one.

13. Alphabet Legacy Challenge

The same as the legacy challenge, but with a twist, each generation must have traits and likes that start with a letter of the Alphabet. So your 1st generation will start with A, Second with B and So and you’ll complete the challenge when you’ve got to generation 10/letter H

14. Living off the Land

Create a sim and have them have the Nature aspiration. Build them a tiny home and they have them live off the land to earn their keep. To make the challenge slightly harder they will not be able to paint or write to make money.

15. Disney Princess Challenge


Have you ever wanted to live out your childhood dream of being a Disney princess? Well, now you can with this challenge.

This is similar to the legacy challenge except each generation is based on a Disney princess, so I’d read through the rules carefully before playing.

These CC princess dresses would be a great accompaniment for this challenge

The first generation will take you through playing with Snow White and her children (the 7 dwarfs). Snow White won’t open the door to the evil stepmother, nor will she ever talk to elderly women.

16. 100 Heartbreak Challenge

If you love breaking hearts in sims 4 then this challenge is for you. The challenge is basically to meet 100 sims date them and then break their heart. (You can not marry or have any kids with them only date them)

As this will just be one generational challenge the creator recommends that you play on a long lifespan.

17. Big Brother Challenge

If you’re a fan of big brother why not recreate it with your sims

18. Living Off The Grid

Next on our Sims 4 Challenges list is the Living Off The Grid Challenge. Which will involve your sim living off the grid with no electricity. They can have a conventional job so can only earn money doing off-grid type jobs.

19. Dollhouse Challenge

Love to build on the sims why not try the dollhouses challenge? There are a few rules, but the challenge is basically to build a doll’s house.

20. 10k Starter Home Challenge

Another challenge if you love building is to build a starter home for 10k ensuring it doesn’t go over the 10k and includes a certain number of objects.
