Sim site of the week: The Mare’s Nest

I’m aware that The Mare’s Nest isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.  The three anonymous bloggers behind the site have grown to be pretty infamous in the TS3 community over the past few months with their blog which scours a whole bunch of Simming forums for the gossip, scandal and hilarity that ensue and then gives us the edited highlights.  However, the gossip and reportage isn’t all they do there – they highlight worlds, lots and stories that might otherwise be missed, particularly if they come from people who frequent different sim communities to you.  As someone who mostly sticks to Boolprop, Valley Sun Sims and Mod the Sims I really appreciate this, and have discovered some excellent blogs through their site.  Plus, they’re British and have lots of British in-jokes which makes me laugh a lot even if several of them might go over the heads of non-Brits.  Finally, they’ve made a whole bunch of custom T-shirts for various sim sites and other cultural phenomena, including BAGPUSS. Quite frankly, any site that makes Bagpuss T-shirts is alright with me.

  1. Oh, I know, it’s a bit of a Marmite site, but I do find their humour clicks with me, and I love the T-shirts and hoodies.

    • O hai Mare’s! Thanks for the plug – why would you be afraid of a fatwa? I’ve long been a supporter…

      By the way – IVOR THE ENGINE? Yes please x1000000000000.
