Work around for the aspiration:

Sims no longer endlessly play games such as Chess, Sabacc (if you own Journey to Batuu), Voidcritter Cards (if you own Kids Stuff), and your regular Card games. I could play with Meduso forever though… #Meduso4ever.

Fixed in Patch 1.68.154/ 1.33

I have just tested in my game with a couple of kids.  It seems they play well until one puts the other in check, then only one kid plays while the other watches and the game never ends.

There is an issue with the chess table - two sims will start playing normally and then one sim (your sim) stops playing, but the other sim continues making moves. Your sims just keeps using the thinking about their next move animation while the other sim keeps making moves. The game never ends.

I'm having the same trouble. I will make my sims play with...(another one of my sims). The game starts off normally but soon one will look like they are just pondering a move and the other continues to make moves and the game never stops. My children were both trying to fulfill the whizz kid play 3 chess games .

I'm having this problem too and I was concerned it may impact me when I have children doing the whiz kid aspiration. It does, except the work around seems to be to have one sim (ie not the one working on the aspiration) to stop playing, then the child will have it register as playing a chess game. The third time I did it, they were only playing for about a sim hour.

 

Best regards,
Jennifer

I tried your work around (let the Sim that is not working on the aspiration quit the game) and fortunately this made the goal check. Thanks for figuring this out!
