It is advised you start a new save game for this just to simplify the whole process.

This is likely to be one of the last achievements you need. It should also be combined with the "dance with death" challenge to complete the "dancing fiend" achievement.

First of all you want to create a male/female sim with the "insane,daredevil and evil" traits. You will also want to create a second sim who you will kill off.

Press the start button and go to the options menu and change sim autonomy to "puppets".

Place the sim who will die outside the front door and buy a chess set with 2 chairs either side aswell as a stereo nearby and turn it on.

Save your game.

Finally you want to place a cosmic curse or a meteor strike directly onto the sim (they must be outside for meteor strike to work) and the sim will die.

The Reaper will appear and you should keep pressing the A button on death until you have the option to be mean and scare or dance with death.

Death will hopefully stick around and you should be able to use the interactions "mean >> scare".

Once you have scared the reaper, providing your stereo is nearby and playing music, the interaction "dance together" will hopefully be available and you will have both challenges out of the way.

- I and many others have had numerous failed attempts so it is important you save your game just before you kill off the sim. You will eventually get the achievement.
- I ended up getting the achievement by dancing by a stereo near to where death showed up, I kept mashing the A button until interactions popped up.
-Just keep trying and you will eventually get it.

I hope this helps, message me if you need help or assistance with the game.

*Thanks to Chalon9 for confirming that you don't want to play chess with death or else he will dissapear straight after regardless of whether you win or not.
