The paper describes a system which simulates the behavior of a crowd of spectators at a tennis game. The spectators have different preferences about the teams that they favor or are neutral. To vary the mood-states, each spectator has an euphoria factor that determines how much a change in the mood-state will affect it. The mood-state of a spectator is shown with expressive facial expressions and some typical animations. Additionally to the animations and expressions the mood-state is expressed by speech as well.
