The Silent Spy is Coming…

Do you have a favorite Nancy Drew box art? There have been some classics in the past, and some striking new ones these past few years. I particularly like Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake, Shadow at the Water’s Edge, Ghost of Thornton Hall, but my #1 new favorite hasn’t even been shown yet! Soon, and […]

Old Secrets Lead to Scotland

With all the excitement we had over our last game, Ghost of Thornton Hall, it was quite easy to forget the old secrets hinted at for this year. Remember the old post 13 Hints for 2013 in January? There was one hint that I forgot to answer for GTH… Next Hint #7: Talent. This vague […]

Second Time Game Play

Do you ever go back to one of your already-solved mystery games to replay it? I admit I do. If you are one of the fans who owns every single Nancy Drew game, all that there is left to do while waiting for the next title, is to replay the older ones. (If you are […]

I’ve been looking at favorite images from inside Ghost of Thornton Hall to put a list together for the merchandise store. I have a long list, and from time to time I check the message boards to see what other fans want added as well. While it does take a while to re-create the pictures […]

Gelato and Tea

Do I talk about food too much? Perhaps. But food can be quite an adventure! Especially when trying new things. In Ghost of Thornton Hall, you have the option to make tea. In the parlor, by the door, is an old-fashioned tea set where you can pour yourself a cup of tea and if you’d […]
