I bought my sims a chess table and two chairs on either side of it. Problem is, when I click on the chess set, the options are grayed out and it says they need a chair to use it. What gives? I've tried a few different types of chair right up against the edges of the chess table and nothing works. I've even tried placing the tables somewhat away from the chess set and still nothing.
It may be worth noting that when I have the chair close to the chess table, the sim can't even sit down. Thanks in advance.
It's likely just a spacing issue in your room. Try putting the chess set outside, then putting the chairs next to it. They should click together then. --- "All for one and one for all. You go first I've got a bad leg."
