Observation Skills

First of all, our mask winners have been randomly selected! Find out who won here!

One of the most popular skills that any detective must build up to become a great detective is the skill to observe. Nancy needs to set her eyes on everything possibly relevant to her case in order to not miss a potential clue.

When entering a new environment, take a look at everything in sight. Depending on the amount of time there is to spend in the location, a detective must be quick to observe and mentally note important features of the space. A person may never know when a chandelier rope or manhole needs to be reached!

How observant have you been while solving all the past cases? Try identifying the game these items and decorations can be found in! Good luck, savvy sleuths!


Also, we have a birthday this weekend! Yay!

Cool! Congrats to everyone who won! And I'm thinking about making a mask for myself, to match the ones HeR gave out. :) Oh darn, I only know a few since I've only played a few of the games... um, well the 1st one is from MHM, in the library. The second, I'm guessing is from SCK2, the 3rd one, totally random but I think it's from DOG for some reason. 4 is from ASH, on the shelf in Alexei's shop, 5... no clue but possibly from CLK? 6= TRT I'm guessing, 7- TRN? 8= MHM in Abby's room. 9- CAR in Elliot's workshop? 10= maybe TRT???
11- Either DOG or TRT come to mind. 12 and 13- CAP? 14- I think CUR and 15 I think FIN. Most (well, actually all except #1) are guesses though. Just my opinion :)

I know like, four of those. But I've only played about five games, so, yeah. Somewhere around there.

LJ: What is your favorite ND game? (Not GOTH)

I've never seen the winners of one of your contests listed like that before! o_O Normally you use initials or first names only. I understand this probably seemed like the best way to get ahold of 100 people. But it's kind of an invasion of privacy too. I saw one girls name who lived near my area. All you need is someone's full name and the city they live in and you can find their address too sweet online you know?!

I can just picture it now... some angry fans who DIDN'T get masks stalking those who did. Just thought I'd ask why you decided to do it that way... I'm sure there aren't that many sinister minds out there so it's all good. :)

Hi Lil Jackalope! I just want to say the games are great but I have a little comment about the metaawards. Can they please not be as pointless as "Key Spinner" in GTH or "Crested Flyer" in TMB. The awards would be more worth pursuing if they made sense like an award for not getting a second chance or not using a spoiler like in GTH.
Thanks! :)

Hey LJ, Just finished the GTH, cannot tell you how exited I am for the silent spy. I was impatient for GTH but, I think I might try create a time to zap myself into the future if it can't come soon enough.
later LJ :)
PS: Also when HeR has created a couple of moments do you think you could show us some?
thanks

hHey!!! my birthday is Thursday may 23. In 3 days!!

Can you mention it?

ND's #1 fan said...

Oh! I just took another look @ #8- and it could also be (still MHM) from the *SPOILER ALERT* DO NOT READ THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE FINISHED MHM******the jewelry box in the safe in Nancy's room*****************END OF SPOILER* :) Actually I think it's that... the jewelry box in Abby's room looks different I think.
Oh, and LJ- if you don't want me doing spoilers like that, please tell me :) I don't want anyone to accidentally have their game spoiled for them. I had SHA spoiled for me and that was NOT fun. (O_O) :)

Is the 2nd one from Last Train when Joe's making cheeseburgers?

Little Jackalope said...

@ND's #1 fan -- Close! You do have several correct...

@Lee -- My Favorite classic ND Game would be The Final Scene. :)

@Hannah -- Hi Hannah, while we wanted to clearly state the winners (maybe there could be two Janes in the same town?) we realized afterwards that some fans like to keep their information hidden. We went ahead and edited the names down to simply showing their last initial, instead of keeping the full name posted.

Hey Heights9Fan! Would you send your suggestion to us at feedback@herinteractive.com? That way more of us can hear your thoughts and ideas, thanks! :)

@Anonymous -- We like to post our Nancy Drew Moments to our social sites, like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram, but I could certainly post a few here! ;)

@Anonymous -- The only way to get your picture in one of our games is if you win one of our contests that offer this as a prize. :) Keep a sharp eye out for these when they come! (We often post these in our newsletter, so be sure to subscribe!)

@Sophia -- You bet!

@ND's #1 fan -- No worries! And yes, you are correct on #8. ;)

Maybe no 10 is from CAP...?
