Watch Me Try To Kill Ten Husbands In The Sims 4

I love Sims challenges, but I never finish them. I’ve resolved to change that. I’m trying out the Sims 4 Black Widow Challenge, and I’ll be streaming it in hopes that an audience will keep me honest.

The Black Widow Challenge was created by the simmer Simalot, and the rules are simple. You make a Sim with the Snob, Materialistic, and Romantic traits, find them a would-be husband, marry that guy, and then kill them. Then you do it again, and again, until you’ve killed ten husbands. There are a few other rules and a complex scoring system, but that’s the gist.

The Sim I made, Scarlet Emery, is gorgeous, and during my first stream with Tim Rogers, I got her to ensnare her first husband.

Sorry Elijah.

I’m not usually a Sim killer; I usually prefer to play out large, successful families. This challenge caught my eye after I watched Lilsimsie’s Let’s Play series on it, in which she accidentally murdered the love of her black widow’s life, after which point she made it her mission to make ambrosia and bring him back from the dead (yes, you can do that in The Sims 4). There’s so much room for comedy, even with all the murder involved.

I’ve already kinda fucked up my first attempt. I met two eligible bachelors out at the bar, and one of them was a rich professional chef. Your black widow isn’t allowed to get a job, so marrying money is key. I ended up proposing to the wrong guy. Oops. He’s doomed anyway.

Every week on Thursdays I’ll be returning to this challenge until I rack up my ten kills. I can only hope for more misadventures along the way.

I did something kind of similar last time I played Sims 4. I created a serial killer. It started innocently (?) enough by having one of my Sims in the suburbs invite over and then kill a noisy neighbor of my other Sim who lived in the newly expanded city living apartment DLC. Hey.... I gave the asshole a chance to keep it down. But then it snowballed into a three room underground torture chamber where he’d lure people in that pissed me off for one reason or another. Pretty soon I had a display room of urns. Playing him I found out once you lured people into the rooms you couldn’t leave the house otherwise the game would just teleport them out of locked rooms. Nothing like holding dinner parties to build your social requirements, all the while their neighbors were dying in a chamber beneath the backyard. LMAO Ok.... maybe I said too much here....
