Sharpening Your Spy Skills

Some of you like to "game marathon" before the next mystery is released, which I find really fun. I have recommended a few titles to reply (in case you had decided not to replay ALL of them) but I wanted to narrow down the "why" part of the titles I selected.

There are elements of game play features in the following games that can relate to The Silent Spy. Here are a few clues:

1. Alibi in Ashes - The closest to Nancy's home and personal life you can get so far. Plus you get to check out her bedroom and living room in the game.
2. Tomb of the Lost Queen - Bess, over the phone, will mention Nancy's mom, hinting that Nancy is the way she is because her.
3. Warnings at Waverly Academy - Here you get to do some snooping through people's things and their rooms. A few areas in the game you need to act quick in snooping without getting caught. Plus the game-play style feels a bit similar to SPY, I think.
4. The Phantom of Venice - Perhaps the best game to play before you dive into The Silent Spy. There are several spy and undercover missions in this game that make you feel like you really are in the business. Plus...you will want to know a few things that go on here before you get to Scotland...


Are you caught up with your Nancy Drew collection? If you have already pre-ordered The Silent Spy, now is the best time to start catching up on those missing mysteries, or even replaying any of the above-mentioned titles, in preparation for your big mission in Scotland.
It's going to get personal...

Birthdays!

And that is why I am excited about this game! TMB, WAC and VEN are my top Nancy Drew Games! (After SSH) I think I am going to love this game sooooo much.

hey lj, are the spy gadgets that you have a chance to win in the contest when you pre-order real? do they actually work? e.g. can you hear better with the listening device, or can you take pictures with the spy cam pen, or can you actually call someone with the cell phone watch? or is it just a sticker?

thanks!

Hey LJ!

My brother's birthday is the 28th, if you could do a shout out for him that would be great. His name is Steve and he's turning 17.

@ND's #1 fan -- I'm crazy excited about you getting to play SPY when it comes out! XD

@Anonymous - They are all real working items, and yes the phone watch is really a phone. ;)

@Carolyn Hills - You got it! :)

Hmmm... something we should know about in VEN? Could this refer to Samantha Quick?
