The Silent Spy is Coming...

Do you have a favorite Nancy Drew box art? There have been some classics in the past, and some striking new ones these past few years. I particularly like Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake, Shadow at the Water's Edge, Ghost of Thornton Hall, but my #1 new favorite hasn't even been shown yet! Soon, and all in good time it will be revealed.


Looks like several of you correctly solved the puzzle! Here's the solution:
Covert the keyboard characters ^, !), !#, @, !, !, !), $ into [their respective numbers on the keyboard]. Which is [6, 10, 13, 2, 1, 1, 10, 4]. Then go back to the blog posts on the given dates, and find the hidden [messages]. Next, count [that many letters in the secret m3essage to get your final letters].

The final word from searching the blog is this [REVENANT]. Some of you on the Message Boards hit the nail on the head with it's definition, but it's meaning is further away than you think. However, it's voice is creepy... were "you paying attention?"

Birthday!

Way to complicated for my poor intellect to figure out =3
My favorite cover arts would have to be.....
Stay Tuned For Danger
Final Scene
Curse of the Crystal Skull
Phantom of Venice
Haunting of Castle Malloy
Shadow at the Water's Edge
And last but NOT least in any way:
Ghost of Thornton Hall XDD
I cannot wait until you reveal the cover art o-o
"Further Away than you think" "were 'you paying attention' " What could it mean o-o

Why'd you say that? Were "you paying attention"? Lol. Now I'm thinking of the movie The Prestige. Now that is a thrill-seeking, mystery/magical movie. :D

Hey! You gotta promise that if you have crazy fun tomorrow, you'll tell us about it!

Also, those of us with RSS feeds are impervious to your sneaky text-hiding techniques! ;D

I CAN NOT wait for this game. I've been playing since I was 12 and am absolutely hooked!! My favorite is the first one I ever played... Message in a Haunted Mansion. Never gets old. I've been saving all of my games so my future daughter can play one day. Love your blog and if it's possible, it'd be an honor to get a shout out on my birthday. It's Thursday, the 29th. I'll be 23!!

Thanks Little Jackalope!

I CAN NOT wait for this next game! I've been playing since I was 12 and that very first game I got, is still my favorite... Message in a Haunted Mansion. It never gets old. I'm about to start a family of my own and I'm still hooked on these games. I'll been saving all of them to pass on to my future daughter. I got about as excited for Ghost of Thornton Hall as I did on my wedding day. I love your blog and it would be an honor if I could get a shout out on my birthday. It's Thursday, the 29th. I'll be 23!

Thanks for keeping us updated Little Jackalope!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH, ok. that's what they were whispering in that video! why did they whisper that?
Tell us, LJ, tell us! PLEASE??? I'll send you lemon bars! ;)

OH! And I forgot to add in the last comment-
I have a theory for SPY! (or at least, why there was WAC music @ the end of the teaser) because HeR never puts music from other games in teasers! (or at least, I haven't heard any) WAC is about all of the girls in Ramsey Hall being 'stalked' by the Black Cat, right? Maybe Kate is being stalked in SPY! Maybe even by the culprit in WAC! She could be posing as someone else so Nancy wouldn't recognize her! Because, HeR did that in one game (not with WAC's culprit, but with another game's culprit).... some of you know what I'm talking about ;) It would make sense, because A- the culprit in WAC would want to get back at Nancy somehow, and B- She (the BC) is really smart and really good at stumbling across secrets, (you know, a student or two's secret in WAC?) ;) Or, my theory could be totally wrong lol :D
I don't know, I'm just grasping straws here.

Doesn't that mean coming back from the dead?

I love TMB. It's one of my fav covers. I also love Phantom of Venice and DED. This new one looks really cool. I might have to go buy that game!
