Nancy Drew Madness - Michael's Picks

This month, they're holding a Nancy Drew March Madness Tournament, with all 32 games!


Here are my picks. Clearly, in the fourth bracket, I think Games 26-29 will crush Games 13-16. I also am predicting surprise upsets, with Secrets Can Kill Remastered and Dossier: Resorting to Danger.


Round One:


Legend of the Crystal Skull
Stay Tuned for Danger
Message in a Haunted Mansion
Treasure in a Royal Tower
Ransom of the Seven Ships
Dossier: Resorting to Danger!
Warnings at Waverly Academy
The Haunted Carousel
Shadow at the Water's Edge
Secrets Can Kill Remastered
Curse of Blackmoor Manor
Alibi in Ashes
Tomb of the Lost Queen
The Deadly Device
Ghost of Thornton Hall
The Silent Spy


Round Two:


Legend of the Crystal Skull
Treasure in a Royal Tower
Ransom of the Seven Ships
Warnings at Waverly Academy
Shadow at the Water's Edge
Curse of Blackmoor Manor
Tomb of the Lost Queen
Ghost of Thornton Hall


Round Three:


Treasure in a Royal Tower
Warnings at Waverly Academy
Shadow at the Water's Edge
Ghost of Thornton Hall


Round Four:


Warnings at Waverly Academy
Ghost of Thornton Hall


Round Five:


Ghost of Thornton Hall


Normally in these tournaments, a correct Round One guess is worth one point, a correct Round Two guess is worth two points, and so on.  I'll be interested in seeing if my personal tastes match with Nancy Drew fans at large!  After all, my Round Three picks are basically my top four, minus Secrets Can Kill Remastered and The Haunted Carousel.

AGREED! Shadow at the Water's Edge is the awesomest game ever. Exclamation point, exclamation point, exclamation point.

There's absolutely no way that WAV will get that far. It and DOG are close enough on the quality scale that the nostalgia cred will tip things in DOG's favor.
I'll guess we'll find out tomorrow who is right and who is dead.
