Spying or “Detectiving”

Welcome back, sleuths! Christmas is next week!! Have you ordered any games for your friends? I remember years ago when I gave Nancy Drew games as gifts. I do believe Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake was the one I gave the most because I thought it was soooo cool. (Well… I still think it’s sooo […]

Spring Jackalope Eggs

So this happened at my desk yesterday… The mystery of the egg culprits is back on. Unfortunately this giant egg that showed up has a matte texture, and is not glossy or smooth enough to capture decent fingerprints. I guess I will have to figure out a way to find out who the culprit is. […]

Sharpening Your Spy Skills

Some of you like to “game marathon” before the next mystery is released, which I find really fun. I have recommended a few titles to reply (in case you had decided not to replay ALL of them) but I wanted to narrow down the “why” part of the titles I selected. There are elements of […]

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 […]
