The Sims is the gaming equivalent of Star Wars: Just about everyone has either played it or heard of it. Playing The Sims is like taking a course on the art or making friends. There's a lot to learn and even more to gain. MasterJoe breaks it down while discussing what is arguably the most important aspect of the game. MasterWife follows up by sharing some of her favorite games for friendship-building and explains the science behind why gaming with your acquaintances is such an effective way to level-up new relationships from bronze league to diamond.
