St. Patrick's Day

Did you remember to wear green today? There have been a couple "pinchers" around the office on the prowl, but thankfully I’m in suitable fashion. I did manage to stumble upon an interesting item I thought I’d share with you all today (given its obvious context with the holiday.)



This is a keychain passed around the office as a promotion for the release of Nancy Drew®: The Haunting of Castle Malloy. Not only does the marketing team reach out to you guys, but sometimes they like to build a bit of anticipation within the office too. There were some masks floating around the office during the Phantom of Venice release, and Mardi Gras beads when Legend of the Crystal Skull launched. I think it’s pretty cool that the office has a kind of “pep rally” for its workers.

I wonder what we’ll see when Ransom of the Seven Ships gets released… ohhhh the anticipation.

How do you get on the list to get one of those, eh? :P

@drewfan112 - In regards to that, I've been told by Marketing that they sometimes give these items away to contest winners. ^.~

What a great prize that would be! I've always wished that HI would consider adding a "store" where we could purchase items like this. An HI mug like from MHM or an ornament like the avatar would be so cool. Not only that I really think it would be very profitable for HI and a great marketing tool for conversation starters.

Yeah, I would definitely buy this sort of item! Consider an online store for this stuff. Or, maybe package it with a version of the games? Then people could buy the regular version or the 'special edition' version.

We've certainly thought about selling this stuff in the past, or in a bundle (ala Jess' idea.) Who knows, maybe we'll see more of it in the future. ^.^
