The Simmer’s Meetup returned on the 1st October for it’s third annual event. The Simmers Meetup is an annual event for players of the popular game, The Sims, to meet and interact with other players from around the UK and in some cases from around the world.
This year the event was held in Eventcity in Manchester and there were 500 tickets to be purchased
The event started at 10 am and there was plenty of things to keep everyone occupied. There were stations set up where you could play The Sims 4 and the Sims freeplay, Similarish had a station where you could pick up some handmade jewellery or posters.
The Sims Resource had a station that allowed you to browse their website and have a look at what simmers have created for you to download for your game. There was also the option to play The Sims, The Sims 2 or The Sims 3 for a quick trip down memory lane.
Throughout the day there were talks from popular Sim YouTubers such as EnglishSimmer and TheSimSupply who gave hints and tips on how they do their Let’s Plays and building tips. There was also a quick video call to one of the Sims team who spoke to us more about the latest expansion pack : City Living.
To round off the day, there was a raffle draw where everyone won a prize and an awesome cosplay competition featuring the Grim Reaper.
