This is one of the trophies for The Sims 3 that I was dreading the most. It sounds extremely difficult and really requires you to keep your Sim on a very strict schedule. After completing the trophy, I realized that it really wasn’t all that difficult as I originally through it would be, so let’s get you this trophy.
The Sims 3 – Child Prodigy
Complete a Lifetime Wish before becoming a Young Adult – Silver
TIP: I found this extremely easy to do by having a child with the Genius trait. With the Genius trait it makes them more logically adept and basically makes getting this trophy a breeze since doing things like playing chess or using the telescope actually makes them have fun. Once your baby progresses into the child state, go to your options menu and disable aging. Doing this will not effect your trophy, but it will allow you to build up the child’s skill without having them age on you. Play the game like you normally would, but each time your child has a free moment make them play chess or use the telescope. Playing chess a lot will eventually offer you the Chess Legend wish. Select this as your child’s lifetime wish. You will now be required to reach level 10 in the logic skill and get to level 5 in the Master Chess ranking.
As a child you cannot challenge other chess opponents, but that’s ok. Continue to play chess as a child and make sure you get the logic skill to level 10. Once you have the logic at level 10 go ahead and go back into the options menu an add aging back into your game. Once your child grows up to a teenager go back into the options menu and disable aging again. As a teenager you can now call over the next ranked chess opponent and challenge them to a game of chess. Whenever your teenager has a spare moment, go ahead and do this. In order to do this you have to have your teenager use the phone to call another Sim. The option for the next chess opponent will appear and use that option. Allow the Sim to come over to the house and go outside to wait for them. Once the new Sim arrives use the invite inside option to get them into the house. Once inside click on the chess table and choose the challenge option. Continue to call over your next chess opponent until you reach level 5 and your trophy pops. After getting the trophy you’re free to turn on the aging again.
