Here’s What Our Players Have Learned – Testimonials

“Because of these games, I have really developed my problem-solving skills which has gotten me far in school.” – Taylor

“I learned problem-solving strategies that I wasn’t taught in school. I learned to think out of the box and to be more creative. Playing those games helped me with my learning disability and how to overcome it. And I still apply the skills I learned in the games to my college classes today!” – Aubrey

“Along with all the fun involved in playing the games, I also have learned a lot too. I cannot even count how many times a day I say ‘I learned it from a Nancy Drew game.'” – Bryce

“One of the things I absolutely love about these games is how they’re able to be wholesome, educational, and still really fun. I’m never worried about playing these around little kids or my parents since I know that there won’t be any crudeness or harsh language.” – Miriam

“About six years ago, someone gave my 9-year-old daughter a Nancy Drew computer game. We all gathered around the computer just to help Jessica solve the game… To our surprise, it was the most fun we had had in a very long time! Our family quickly fell in love with the Nancy Drew games!! But more than that, we fell in love with the idea of working together to solve these games while spending quality time together!” – Melissa

“As a child who was afraid of anything and everything, being able to enjoy the world of a girl with untouchable convictions and incredible gumption was paradise…I will never forget Nancy’s world and how it’s helped me throughout the years.” – Kellsey

“The game allows you to play as Nancy Drew, cracking codes, solving puzzles, interviewing suspects, and ultimately saving the day! For me, it was a dream come true; however, I was not the only one hooked. These computer adventures quickly became a family affair.” – Nora

“I have learned so much from the Nancy Drew games; I have traveled to Ireland, Italy, England, Germany, Canada, the Caribbean, Japan, Washington DC, and so many other places. I have learned about Marie Antoinette, I have learned to identify types of birds and insects, I have learned about the 1930s, and even about the ancient Mayans. I have saved an old theater from being demolished, and even fixed a chicken coop on a ranch!” – Stefanie
