Perhaps you own all of the books, maybe you have played all of the games, or suppose you have also seen the TV series from the 70s. Are you a big fan and collector of everything Nancy Drew? Or is your collection just getting started?
Somewhere in your home is a shelf with a few Nancy Drew items, and like any good detective, you keep your eyes sharp and observant for that missing book or that one missing item to add to your collection. Have certain locations in the games intrigued you enough to want to visit the area in real life? Maybe there is a foreign language or a real-life skill that you have become interested in because of the games.
I for one, am a big collector. Not as some die-hard fans already are, but I’m working on my own collection at home. I plan on getting some merchandise from our store that reflects contents found in the games; such as the Jr. Park Ranger key chain from Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake, or the Whale key chain found in Danger on Deception Island.
Another way to simply collect Nancy Drew memories is to create your own scrapbook, the way Nancy has on her own desk. Since I’ve visited the castle that inspired Wickford’s in Treasure in the Royal Tower, maybe I will decorate a page with those photos I took in the theme of that game: purple, add Marie Antoinette, perhaps a brochure of the castle’s restaurant menu…
