In The Sims: Makin' Magic, Sims can charm a snake on Magic Town lots with a snake charming basket. The basket is manned by Nagganaste, who will allow Sims to try and charm his pet snake and earn MagiCoins. The amount of MagiCoins received depends on the Sim's creativity skill. A Sim with a low creativity skill will play a horrible tune, scare the snake back inside its basket and earn very few MagiCoins, while a Sim with a higher creativity skill will successfully charm the snake and earn a larger amount of coins. If the Sim's energy is too low, they may fall asleep in the process.
The Sims 3Edit
In The Sims 3: World Adventures, Sims can purchase a snake charming basket while on vacation in Al Simhara. When they try to charm the snake, a Sim can be bitten in either the face or the hand. If a Sim is skilled enough, they can purchase a king cobra and reduce the chance of getting bitten by it. Sims who have been cursed by mummies can have the curse lifted by kissing a snake. If a snake charmer has gotten the snake to perform at least once, they can then charm snakes into the clothes of other sims on that lot! The affected Sim will jump around as if they are on fire, and when the charmer stops, the victim will immediately go to argue with the offending charmer. Also, for reasons unknown, a mysterious Mr. Gnome or Laundry Gnome will occasionally pop out of the basket for a second or two before going back inside the basket.
