Getting Ready for Ghosts!

I wish I could say that I'm caught up on the Scary Games Marathon, but I'm not. Tonight we finish up playing Shadow at the Water's Edge (of which I got terribly distracted with trying to solve all of the puzzles from Rentaro...as well as playing Pachinko at the parlor over and over and over again to get all the prizes). This weekend I will play the latest "scary game": The Captive Curse! If you are waiting for your pre-ordered copy of Ghost of Thornton Hall, is there a Nancy Drew game you would play before receiving the latest mystery?

Or if you are too impatient to sit down to replay an old game, check out this video we posted today on YouTube!


Oh no! SPOILERS?! Just a head's up to everyone, if you pre-ordered Ghost of Thornton Hall physical BONUS EDITION, your game has likely already been shipped out, or will on Monday. You will have access to download the strategy guide as soon as it ships, but keep in mind that the guides NEVER reveal who the culprit is, so the only spoilers you would get from it are how to solve the puzzles, as well as critical story points.

Speaking of spoilers, while some people will receive their game early, there is that chance that a few will spoil game content on the Message Boards or on Facebook, Twitter, or other web sites. If you have your heart set on not seeing any spoiler content, you may want to stay offline for a bit. (Don't worry, I will not reveal anything big here...but I may warn you about little things and then put it in spoiler code). XD

Here's a little extra weekend fun for your to ponder over:


And we have a few birthdays to celebrate!


Have a spooktackular weekend everyone!

Hey Little Jackalope! I have been playing SAW (took me awhile 'cause I wanted to get ALL of the awards...didn't go so well...), CAP and I am currently playing CUR (in the dark!!!)! Oh yeah I am trying not to go online where there may be spoilers for GTH until I complete the game! Happy birthday too all who has a birthday! :D I hope you are having a wonderful week (and soon to be weekend) and happy sleuthing!

Hi, Little Jackalope!
Is that a different lace mask on the office wall behind you? I ♥ it (^.^)
When you said It's Coming!!, I can totally relate. Every time I think about having my game to play, I think the same thing! I'm so excited the games started shipping today! Though I still have to check to see if mine has shipped...
I really want one of those amazing masks! But I suppose if I don't win one, I can do a little snooping in a costume shop and dig one up (^.^)
I might just have to follow your "Tips and Tricks" for preparing for GTH...I would just have:
• Sharing ghost stories
• Dressing like a detective...or ghost
• Playing in the dark
• Turning the music volume up
I think I'll also follow your example and paint my nails blood red, and dress in red/black until I get my game in the mail.
(And I may practice screaming, but more for when I get the game)
You stay sleuthy, too, LJ! (^.^)

Thank you SOOOOO much JL for the Birthday shout out!!!!! And happy birthday to you too Angela and Mandy!! :) When I saw the shout out I screamed so much that my Mom thought there was a fire... :)
Hmmm I wonder who called from inside the office... ;) You will have to tell us the end of that ghost story! And I will try not to throw my food on the screen but if this is the scariest game... I should have a backup laptop just in case. I am so excited for GTH!!! I got a notice today saying that my order had shipped and I should get it on Monday!! Well I should "Sleuth on"!

The puzzle was based off the game at "Scoops" in ASH! "I've got a case fore you. Thornton hall is no place for anyone who believes." Savannah said this when Nancy answers that "3 A.M. Call" in the Trailer! :)

You know your too impatient to get your New ND game when you have a dream about the game... I hope the game was as scary as my dream!

One question: Where do the games start to shop from? Do they still ship in Indiana? I was confused by CJ's post on the message boards. LOL!

Answer to the puzzle is: "I've got a case for you. Thornton Hall is no place for anyone who believes." (Savannah!!!!)

Hey LJ,

My name is Martha and my 13th birthday is on Wednesday. Think you could give me a shout out? And I don't mean to be a bother, could you use the colors scarlet and blue-green? Thanks, those are my favorite colors.

Thanks again, LJ!!!

Oh, the answer is: "I've got a case for you. Thornton hall is no place for anyone who believes!" :D

That was a piece of cake.

The answer is:

SPOILER

I've got a case for you. Thornton Hall is no place for anyone who believes.
That's Savannah's line we've heard from the teaser.

Hi!
My friend Kamelia is turning 16
on Tuesday, so it would be great
if you could post a birthday shout
out to her. I'm not sure if you're
going to have a post on Tuesday,
but she'll see it on Monday too.
Thank you so much!

@Sheesh4- Thanks! No wonder I didn't recognize it... I was hoping it would be from GTH though, so I could hear it when I played :)
