Countdown to Pre-orders

Hey all! Unfortunately I was out sick yesterday (no joke!) and therefore your answer to the weekend puzzle had to be delayed until today. From the looks of it no one has reached the correct answer! *Gasp*! It appears that with less direction, these puzzles are more likely to stump you...hehe....now I know how to do it...

Brain-vexing aside, I really need to release the answer, because it will be given away soon, anyway. For those of you who would like to keep at, go ahead, I will put it all in spoiler code below for those who'd like to know.

To solve it, first take out the red letters in the poem.
Once you have those, [identify their value in the alphabet. Ex: A = 1, B = 2 and so on].
According to the directions provided, [add all these values together]. You should get this total: [45].
Now divide [this value by the number of words in this poem]. The math problem is this: [45 ÷ 5] = [9].

What this answer really means: [The official trailer will be release on April 9th, Tuesday. The same day we launch pre-orders.]

Woot! I've had my calendar marked for that day for a long time....(and today we are working on it)!

~Psych! We uploaded a different video today. Check it out! Can you tell we had a little fun?~

Head's up! New poll to your right!

Aw, I was close on the weekend puzzle. I divided by 9, the number of red letters, instead of 5, the number of words in the poem. Tricky, LJ! (^.^) I had my hopes up that it would be tomorrow, but preorders day is good too.
I LO♥E the video! I have listened to Call Me Nancy, Second Chance Me so many times, now I have a new song to enjoy too! How do you come up with this stuff, it's awesome!!
Can't wait to see the trailer next Tuesday, and to preorder GTH, too!

THAT WAS AWESOME! Wa-hooo!! That was so fun! The snippets from games were the funnest part!

I really liked your dark blue dress, it looked like the outfit from the original Nancy Drew books. Vintage style.

I knew somehow that the trailer would be realeased around the preorders. But didn't know that it would be excatly on that day. Yay! And that's what you were up to with the hidden messages! Sneaky LJ, you got us real good. Really cute movie though. I LOVE that girls voice! She has some good talent there. Do you think you can do an Amateur Sleuth interview video blog with her? She seems amazing! xx

I'm extremely proud of myself :) in one of your posts you said ...18 days... In hidden text and I thought maybe that's when the trailer would be released so I counted 18 days and came out with April 9!

Emma said...

Hey, Little Jackalope! I was just wondering, how and when did you get your job at Her? You used to be Mysty on the boards, right? I remember seeing you there way back in the day.

Wow LJ! you look great in that dress! I love your hair like that!And that song is really cool!!! Could you give me the chords and strum pattern so I could learn how to play it? I love singing and playing guitar, but with a Nancy Drew song played on guitar? That's like 2 for 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And the lady who did the song did really good!!! did she write it?
Love the video!!!

You guys are always making me smile. I love your outfits litte J:so cute. The song reminds me of the one you did with Phoenix which I listen to too many times to count. Who wrote this new one?
Wish I could hang with you for a day!

@Rachel Stevens - Thanks Rachel! XD

@Norwegian Dancer - Creative Writing and lots of practice is how we make awesome stuff like this. (~.^)

@Hannah - I love that Nancy Drew vintage-style look! (And thanks!)

@Anonymous - I got the dress at a Marshalls!

@Emma - I am still Mysty on the boards, yes, but I don't post as much since I'm an Admin and the red words kinda look intimidating... (o.O) And by the way, I started out as a fan, went to school, then got an internship, then was hired. :)

@Junebug - I'm not sure what the strum chords were...I'll have to ask the Tech Girl...

@ND's #1 fan - You should try typing my name into Google Images and see what turns up! (Lots of Blog images)

@ Anonymous - All of our social media sites are linked to the top right of this blog, in case you'd like to check them all out. ;)

@ND's #1 fan - Yep, we hide repeat items in several games!

sorry if I'm 'getting in your hair' Little Jackalope, but the next time you see Tech Girl, could you ask her what the stum pattern and chords were for the guitar song? thanks!!! I just reeeeaaaaallllllyyyyyyyy want to learn how to play it!

Oh, cool LJ! In the backround I saw The old Nancy drew book series and the Nancy figure from the cover of the second book in the old series! (LJ, if you check it you'll find out that I'm right.) It's titled: THE HIDDEN STAIRCASE.
