In all the Nancy Drew games, all our characters have secrets, motives, means, or opportunities to commit a crime. This is what makes them suspects! Part of Nancy’s investigations has her snooping through people’s things, asking each person about the others, and doing research to learn if that particular character is guilty of the crime that Nancy is trying to solve.
Cue every player’s favorite pastime: snooping through people’s stuff!! I don’t know about you, but this is one of my favorite things – when a character goes away from their regular spot, and we have a chance to snoop and go through their things. So much information can be gained in this. The suspense of getting caught, rifling through things, unlocking drawers, and discovering vital clues are all part of the thrill!
That being said, I want to focus on the really cool moments we have had in the games. I shall try my best to avoid sharing any spoilers! One example of a great moment was in Legend of the Crystal Skull when Bess creates a contraption to get Lamont away from his desk so that she can snoop his backroom. I felt great tension that I could get caught at any moment and snooping through a box of stuff was so exciting!
Another example would be in The Captive Curse when I can get Karl away from his desk. I love desks! Knowing I was on a timer – Karl could come back at any time – added to the suspense while I tried to figure out how to open his locked desk drawer. Once I opened it, I was intrigued by the information I found inside. I felt so rewarded for my snooping and quick actions.
Without telling us the revealed information about what you find and without telling us the secrets the character is hiding, tell us what your favorite snooping moment was! I want to hear!
