One thought on “The Sims Freeplay-Joyous Japan Update

  1. Another live event….and another boring same old used lot. What about the place that is shown in the picture?? Who here actually finishes a live event on their first try…I payed once and I still didn’t finish it 😂 this update is very disappointing.
