The Stepford Name Game! [updated 20th Jan!]

So I've been kinda uninspired with my OWBC recently, so thought I might as well start up another challenge!
This is the Name Game challenge, and you can find the rules here if you're interested!
The extra challenges I'm gonna attempt are:
matriarchy: all heirs are female, +2 per generation
top of my career: founders/heirs/spouses max careers, +1 per career topped, +4 for every unique career topped
a lifetime of wanting: founders/heirs/spouses complete their ltws, +1 per ltw reached, +4 for every unique ltw completed
helicopter parent: +1 for every toddler that learns to walk/talk/potty trained, +1 for every child that gets to level 5 of 2 different skills, +1 for every teen that gets an A+ for 3 days, +1 for every teen that maxes their teen career
let the public decide: +5 per generation that's put up for heir poll

i'm probably going to be a little lax with how hard I try for these extra challenges, but I'm putting them all here just in case I manage them :D

scorecard (warning: spoilers!!!)

updates:
1.1 | 1.2

family:

Oooh, another name game! Yay!!

Spoiler:
You're making me want to add some of the other 'hoods to MY name game 'hood since I'm playing in Strangetown. The family is super cute though and I can't wait to see more of Lucinda and Castor's kids!
Call me Riss or Carissa!

Also excited for another name game! Can't wait for the next chapter. This is making me want to download TS2 to see all those old dormie and townie faces again. Lots of good times playing those fraternity and sorority sims!

Chapter 1.2 is now up!

(also please give me your thoughts re: what to do about an heir poll - there's a note at the end of the chapter about it!)

Another good update! Seriously, the kids are all so cute!!

I think that having Lily just kinda hang out in limbo until all the kids are born would work well, and then you can do the hair poll with however many girls are born. Hopefully you'll get another one so we have more than just 2 choices!

Thank you! I blame the fact the parents are basically both completely face 1s haha

And yeah I think I will leave Lily in limbo til everyone’s born - I just needed someone else to say it to make me feel like it wasn’t a stupid decision! :headache:

I agree with sending Lily off to university at least until the heir poll. You could even bounce back and forth between the family and playing her through university, if that idea appeals to you.
