When my simmies get a chance card (hobby or career), I very rarely hit ignore. I tend to treat them as ROSs for my game.
When I answer the chance card, I always try to answer like that simmie would. For example, when S'Ahmisa was a council member, she got a chance card:
"The council has convened to discuss the renovation of a local park. The park is in what the mayor like to call an "under financed" part of the city, and though the park has some historical significance, the surrounding housing andpublic works are as equally in need of renovation. The pros and cons are complex, but when it comes time to vote, ____ has only two options."
S'Ahmisa has a soft heart towards those in need, she has been known to buy sacks of groceries and put it in fridges or to secretly deposit money into accounts. So for her, it was a no brainer-she would vote yes.
Once I see what the outcome is, I then often incorporate the chance card into my blog. Sometimes it's just a simple write-up, other times I actually film the scene and showcase it in the blog update, like I did for S'Ahmisa's chance card.
Other times, the chance card sets off a more elaborate story, like Susie's yearlong tour.
I followed that chance card through letters between Anthony
and Susie as they dealt with the long tour.
How do you deal with chance cards?
