Ok, how many of us can admit that we often need those “Second Chances” during a mystery? The particular Second Chances I want to mention are those moments when our life is on the line…unless we simply avoid these dangerous circumstances, we we can’t since we are drawn to danger…and if Nancy doesn’t solve the puzzle correctly…KUHBLAM! Time for a Second Chance. >.<
Some examples include organizing the elements in the underground secret location of The Haunting of Castle Malloy. You know, the one where you maneuver the mechanical arm/grip and drop the elements into the appropriate places? Also, in Curse of Blackmoor Manor, where down in the tunnels you need to enter the correct alchemy recipe/combination…and you enter incorrectly? Kaboom. Enough said.
We have a newer “kaboom” moment in The Deadly Device, when you mix the wrong amount of chemicals together, the glass bottle explodes. (I don’t know about you, but I find this destructively fun!) We have a Nancy Drew Moment graphic for these moments and memories….
Yeah. Exactly. XD
