A Night in a Haunted Place

If you could spend the night in any scary Nancy Drew game environment, where would you stay? Would it be in Sally’s cabin in the woods in Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake? Would you stay in Ryokan in Shadow at the Water’s Edge? Or how about the Golden Gardenia in Message in a Haunted Mansion? […]
