Labryinth of Lies (so far)


, , , ,

I’m still playing Labyrinth of Lies, but so far my thoughts on it are.   The underworld part is pretty cool, (especially the fire room). and it’s a new element of the game.  I like the “costumes” the characters are wearing.  There is a lot of information about Ancient Greece in the game.  There are some new types of puzzles to figure out.

LOL  also reminds me of several of the older Nancy Drew Games.

1) Secret of the Scarlet Hand:  Both take place in a museum.  However LOL makes more sense to me that SSH, because unlike the latter, which takes place in a Washington D.C. museum that specializes in Mayan artifacts,  the museum in LOL is a Ancient Greek museum that is in Greece.

2) The Final Scene:  Nancy is sort of stuck there.  She can’t leave, and travel to other places.

3) Tomb of the Lost Queen:  Ancient artifacts except this LOL is about Greek ones and not Egyptian.  And there is that weight puzzle too.

Deadly Game of Cat and Gummy Bears


, , , , ,

One of my new favorite shows is Gotham, the story of Gotham City before the Bat shows up.  Most of the familiar characters are there, a pre-batman Bruce Wayne, Alfred, Commissioner Gordon, currently just a police detective, and of course the soon to be villains, Penguin, Riddler, Poision Ivy and Catwoman to name a few.

However in this series Selina aka Cat, isn’t wearing any of her “cat” accessories.  In fact she reminds me more of Ryan in “The Deadly Device” than the classic Catwoman at least in looks.  Maybe it’s the goggles.

Nancy Drew Party Time


, , ,

I have been wanting to do a Nancy Drew themed party, or at least decorate for one for a long time.  So when I decided to volunteer to be the decorator at the local ladies club, I decided that it was the perfect time to do so.

I bought some black table cloths at the local Dollar Store for the tables.   There was some left over caution tape from a Vacation Bible School years ago.  Then I looked around some of the local antique shops, for anything that yelled NANCY DREW or at least 1930’s.  I found an Avon perfume bottle that was shaped like an old telephone bottle, a vintage yellow hat,  a small clock. two old glass bottles and some brass candle sticks.  To these items I added some of the Nancy Drew books (the ones with the yellow covers.)

Below are some of the photos
