I got my copy of Nancy Drew: Ransom of the Seven Ships today, even though it officially comes out next Tuesday, the 14th. YES!
But...no one's made a guide for it yet, so I have to solve all the puzzles by myself. NO! I've got three or so puzzles right now that I have little/no idea how to solve.
The game is pretty awesome so far. There are CRYPTOGRAMS, which are so much easier to do on the computer than in puzzle magazines (because you don't have to worry about erasing everything if you make a mistake).
And the plot has grabbed my interest. This game is...somehow related to the other games in the series. For example, in the demo, there's a map inside the closet. If you examine it, Nancy notes that there are nineteen pins on the map...one in each place she's solved a mystery. I'm interested in seeing how/if this pans out, how/if the other games in the series are related to this one.
I don't know how far I am into the game, but I have notes for seven puzzles written out. So...I've solved seven harder puzzles so far.
