Weekend Puzzle #193...and a Marathon!

Day four of Ghost of Thornton Hall pre-orders! From what I've been hearing/reading lately is that some of you are doing game marathons before GTH becomes available, this is awesome! However it's a little late to attempt to play 27 games before May 7th, it might be more doable to play all the "scary" games before then.

Let's see, 3 full weeks between here and May 7th, and 4 full weekends...and I personally count 7 games to be "scary" or "creepy", so that's 1 game on weekdays, and 1 game each weekend... anyone want to join me?  I'm starting with Message in a Haunted Mansion first. :)

But for the rest of us who have a little more time on our hands...and who want an insider clue from GTH, you can try solving the weekend puzzle here, enjoy!


It's a birthday crazy weekend! Happy birthday to all these wonderful super sleuths!

LJ! I think I know who your egg bandit is! (and I've never even been @ the office!) I think it's Jeanne, your lead tester! Read her interview on the Dare to Play blog and tell me what you think on that one question... http://www.herinteractive.com/cms/blog?page=1
I may be grasping straws here, but I think you should talk to her.... :)

Oh trust me LJ, it's possible to try to attempt to play all the Nancy Drew games before GTH comes out. When DED came out in the fall, I tempted myself to play all the games and I played ALL 26 games within a week. So, never undoubt the masterminds of us Nancy Drew Clue Crew(; And in my honest opinion, I didn't think HAU was scary or even CAP. The more I can describe for CAP is very suspenful. And for HAU I can describe more as action I think. The scariest games in my opinion are will forever be CUR and SAW. Never forget when I was 11 years old playing that game and I refused to finish it until I was older. It used give me nightmares..

HAU and CAP weren't scary games, in my opinion.. I really hope GTH is scary, though.

Rachel Stevens said...

I can beat 27 games before May 27th. I can one is just a few hours, so figure like 2-3 games per day. I can do that. Not really understanding why it takes everyone else so long.

"See what he sees and leave"? Colton or Wade maybe.

Rated E for everyone. It's up to you as Nancy Drew. Jess? Jessalin! This isn't funny, where are you? Jessie! Savannah? I've got a case for you. There's been a kidnaping! Thornton Hall is no place for anyone who believes. I'm happy we have another set of eyes cooking for Jessie, but I do hope you know what you're getting yourself into... I saw something really strange. Around the time Charlotte's ghost was driving the family away, the stories started to spread.

They start to ship out the Pre-Ordred copies a week before they are released in stores.

Weekend Puzzle. Answer

This is text from trailer of game "Danger by Design".

The devil may wear Prada, but that's child's play compared to Minette, your boss and haute couture designer. Lately, she's been throwing tantrums and firing employees at will, and you as Nancy Drew have been sent to Paris to go undercover as her intern to discover the cause.

That's all!

One word LJ... creepy. As in REALLY creepy. 'See what he sees and leave'! What's that mean???? It sounds kinda like the note you get in MHM to 'Leave the mansion NOW!!!' And then you know what happens... :)
Oh, and I would join you on the scary games marathon, but MHM is the only "scary" one I have, so I'm just going to see if I can play all of the games I own, in order from the time I got them, before May 7th. Oh! And since I'm replaying ASH (that's the 1st game I got), I saw a reference to DED!!!! In Alexei's shop, turn to face the shelf w/ the pin thing you get the key from, and and in the far left, you see a miniature Tesla Coil!!! Just had to tell you. (^_^) PS- sorry this comment is SOOOOOOO LOOOOOONG! Thanks for liste- (er, reading) lol

CAP was pretty scary to me still is. I mean I don't scream or jump, but the thought of the monster sneaking into Nancys room while she slept, I mean the secret passage is RIGHT there is just terrifying but CAP is my favorite game. And I could totally do all 27 games, I play them all so much, I must have played them at least 30 times! Well the middle ones, not the early ones and the new ones, but I've still played those at least ten times!

We think we might have a good theory as to what the answer to the puzzle is supposed to mean...

how do I let you know its my birthday? Do I just comment here?

Did you know that Arglefumph is planning on doing the exact same thing, only he will record them? :)

CRY wasn't as scary as I expected it to be. It was just the beginning, and then everything afterwards was static. :( still good as always, though! MHM was the first I played when I was 6 or 7 with my sisters... It will always be the scariest for me! :) And then CUR comes in second ;D

HopeFollows said...

See what he sees and leave? What does that supposed to mean?
Hmm, perhaps I shouldn't play this game alone. I'll have to ask one of my neighbors to join me when I play Ghost of Thorton Hall. The trailer really spooked me.

Answer: See what he sees and leave.
when talking to colton or wade?

Anonymous said...

@TheNancyDrewNerds
Or maybe when we're talking to Colton or Wade we have to just agree to what they say and then walk away, because that way we'll get more information out of them throughout the game. Just a thought. I did not notice the shadow in the trailer. I'm gonna check it out again ;)

I tried the Weekend Puzzle #193 and ended up with
"see what he sees and leave."

Not sure if it's right though...

Wow! I'd love to join but for now,I'll just have time to install a game and reaplay when I get the chance. I'm too busy working on painting after school to spend too much time on the computer. I'm thinking of installing ASH again. (I usually play CRY between other games. It's still my fav :) )

From me,

Thanks SOOOOO MUCH for the shoutout, Little Jackalope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is sooooo pretty!!!! My friend Leah LOVED it!!!!!! she thought that that was SO COOL!!!! Sorry I didn't thank you sooner, but I haven't had access to a computer ever since you blogged it, except when I was showing it to my friend as a Birthday surprise. So, I'm thanking you now!
THANKS LITTLE JACKALOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, I would LOVE to do the Marathon! but I don't have all of the games... I only have ( out of the games you listed) DOG, CUR, CRY, HAU, and SAW. But I have played every one except CAP. MHM was the first game I played out of the series. I played it like 2 years ago, and I was SO scared!!!!
But now I look back on that and laugh, because it isn't even that scary anymore! Anyway, I could replay the games I have on the days you guys do, that could be my marathon! and good job on the weekend puzzle! SO confusing!

Just an idea,
