Nancy's Second Chances

Hope you all had a great 4th of July! One comment in response to the previous blog post said:


And I thought "This is so true. Nancy is always destroying things or blowing stuff up...on accident that is." I totally didn't mean for you to go and blow up a bunkhouse or photo lab, set fire to the kitchen or go setting off alarms. That would be bad, since there is no "Second Chance" button to go back before the incident. Ouch. But if you are playing a Nancy Drew game, I would encourage you to push it to the limits and try out what would happen if you attempted to reach the gear over the balcony without help in The Final Scene or didn't switch the correct wires at the roller coaster in The Haunted Carousel, or even press all the incorrect buttons up high above the tomb ground in Tomb of the Lost Queen.

Some of those Second Chances are rather fun to experience, and sometimes they are funny. Someone here in the office enjoys the second chance in Secret of the Scarlet Hand where you can drop the monolith dials. "It's too heavy!" Ah, good times, and some of them: good scares. My current favorite is at the end of The Final Scene if you do not rescue Maya in time. The first time I saw that happen I gasped really hard, and might have jumped a bit. XD

We have some big things planned to come soon, and some clever detectives discovered a little bit of one of the projects, of which we will reveal later....unless you find it, too. ;)

I've never played the final scene and no Library has it.:( I'm glad to say,I was so afraid of dropping the monoliph dials I got there fast. I did however use second chance ALOT in Danger on Deception Island. Ouch...

lol I'm always thankful that theres a second chance button!
Some can be pretty scary! I'd say the ones in the Haunted Carousel and Blackmoor Manor ones were the worst for me. :O

Hi Little Jackalope!!!

First of all, I want to say that I love this blog! >.<

But I have two questions. First of all,when is to text contest 3 coming out? You may not be able to answer that, but I thought I would ask anyway.

Next, I don't have a Twitter account and would love to compete in the Twitter Quote Contest. Is there anyway I can still enter? /A HUGE Fan) ;-)

Nancy does get blown up all the time!

I love the second chance from SSH. I also love the second chance screen from TMB- "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you a homicidal bridge, you have clearly done something to make life angry." I laughed out loud for that one. ^.^

I thought that the ending Second Chance sequence was the most realistic. :) I suppose I kind of like the second chance from Haunted Carousel, where Nancy gets stuck in the roller coaster track, because in arglefumph's walkthrough, he kept waiting for the coaster to come because he was so excited about seeing what Nancy's shoes looked like... :D

Hey Little Jackalope I have a Question that I think about alot! the question is...
How did you come up with your nickname?
Hope you can answer that BYE!

@Teagpow -- I came up with my nickname after I learned about the jackalope display in Trail of the Twister, but also because jackalopes are one of my favorite animals. The "Little" part is because I'm short, but I love it! XD
