Welcome to the Official Legacy Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the new Official Legacy Challenge Blog!  My name is Christina, but some of you will probably know me as ImaginingMystic.  If you don't know who I am, I am Pinstar's wife. We met through the Sims 2 back in 2006.  We have both been pretty silent in the Sims world over the last several years as we have been busy starting a real life Legacy of our own.  Pinstar and I have two little boys, Alex is 3 and Cooper is 1 1/2.  As you can imagine we have our hands full.  That being said, I didn't want to keep neglecting the gaming community that brought the two of us together in the first place so I decided to start up a blog where I could have all of the Legacy Challenge rules organized in one central location (as well as the rules for the Apocalypse Challenge and the Sim of the Month Challenge).  I also plan on posting the story for my current Sims 2 Legacy Family as I play it (though I don't anticipate these updates being all that frequent as I am busy with our real family) as well as guest posts from other Legacy Challenge fans.

As many of you know, Pinstar has not been available to answer Legacy Challenge questions on the Sims 3 site for quite some time now.  So if you have questions, you may ask them here in the comments, or email them to me at and I will ask him and get back to you.

Finally, as news of the Sims 4 starts being released, Pinstar plans on posting his plans for the Sims 4 Legacy Challenge here as well.

If there is anything else that you would like to see here, please let me know!

Happy simming!


  1. I appreciate your posting your legacy challenge story. I've started this amazing challenge twice (TS3). First time, on generation 8 the game totally crashed. Backups wouldn't even work. So I started again and am on gen 3 I think. I'm starting a 3rd time on my laptop while the hubs is in the hospital recovering from surgery. Figured it would be a good time to get TS3 on my laptop (been meaning to do that) and I haven't got anything else to do for the next 3-6 days.

    Anyway, I enjoyed your writing and hope you do continue! Your husband has incredibly imagination and his legacy kept me from deleting TS3 from my computer. I loved most of the improvements they made from TS2 but hated the lack of neighborhood control. The legacy helped me control a single family without getting bored. It gave me a goal.

    So as soon as the game is finished installing, the Monroe Family Legacy will begin!

  2. Thank you! I'm having fun with my Legacy family :) I'm looking forward to starting a Sims 3 one once I finish the Sims 2 one.

    I hope your husband has a speedy recovery!
