The Goal:

The History Challenge is a spin-off from the Legacy Challenge. You play through several generations of Sims, with each generation advancing into another era of human history.

Your aim is to step through each era of history with your Sims, by completing goals to advance to the next time period.

Note: It is highly recommended that you play this challenge with the Outdoor Retreat Game Pack, as during the Prehistoric Era there are a number of items used during game-play from this pack.
