Classics vs. New Titles

Have you been following our Nancy Drew Madness this week? You can see which games will be coming up in the brackets on the chart. Notice how, roughly speaking, the old classic games are dueling with newer titles?

From my perspective, I can predict winners on some duels easily, and others I await the results. Like Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake vs. Warnings at Waverly Academy. I really like both of those games A LOT, but I'm not sure what the fans' perspective will be. This will be a hard one for me to choose, but I have a good guess which will win.



However, my predictions and votes are of just my thoughts. May the general Nancy Drew fandom as a whole be heard! Remember, to participate, check back on our Facebook page each day (we tend to post around 1pm PST) and read the instructions to either "like" or "comment" to vote on the respective game that is presented to you. I update the grand chart here each time we post a new duel.

This is a really fun idea! I can't participate in the Facebook votes, BUT I'm getting just as much fun by rooting for my favorite game in each duel and following the scores! Today, I'm cheering on Treasure in the Royal Tower! Go TRT!

Ooh, I don't have a Facebook account so I cannot vote, but I think I already know which games will win the first round of brackets(the following are in order from left to right, top to bottom):

- The Final Scene
- Secret of the Scarlet Hand
- Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake
- The Haunted Carousel
- (this one will be close, I think, but if I had to guess...) Danger on Deception Island
- The Secret of Shadow Ranch
- Curse of Blackmoor Manor
- Secret of the Old Clock
- Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon
- The Deadly Device
- Ghost of Thornton Hall
- The Silent Spy

I cannot wait to see the outcome! I hope that GTH wins, but I think TRT will. :-)

This was the hardest decision so far for me! I stand by the old games but Waverly is one of my favorite new games--in part because I went to an all-girls school!

I love some of the older games for their charm, and love the features of some of the newer games...so it's not an easy decision! My sister and I have been playing these games since 1998 starting with the original Secrets Can Kill. For 16 years we have been anxiously awaiting the next game..and loving them all. It's amazing to see the evolution of the games!

I totally hope TRT comes out as first because it was the first one I ever played and it's my all time favorite.
