Since the Simlympic Games began in 2006, there have been 13 Summer Simlympic Games held in 13 separate cities and 3 Winter Simlympic Games held in 3 separate cities. In addition, two summer games were scheduled but were later canceled, the first midway through due to violence, Windsor Park in December 2007, the other due to low popularity and no bids, which were supposed to be held in April 2008.
Host cities are selected by the International Simlympic Committee (ISC). Currently, they are selected nearly two months in advance. The selection process takes one month. In the first stage of the selection process, any city in the Simcity community may submit an application to become a host city. After one month, the host city is then chosen by vote of the ISC Session, a general meeting of ISC members.
