Nancy Drew March Madness is going strong! It's been pretty exciting so far. The closest match was the one between Danger on Deception Island and Shadow at the Water's Edge, with Shadow winning by six votes. Wow! I knew Shadow was a popular game, but I had no idea Danger on Deception Island was so well-liked, too!
Danger on Deception Island is actually near the bottom of my list. The first half of the game is okay, but not very interesting. The second half of the game basically involves ignoring everyone and everything, to go on Hilda's extended fetch quest.
Secret of the Scarlet Hand is another game at the bottom of my list, which did well. Only about a third of that game is fun, in my opinion. The pyramid segment was tedious and takes forever, and the challenge of getting all the jade carvings was not very interesting, gameplay-wise. It's mostly a series of phone calls, made worse by the fact that certain phone numbers can only be called from certain phones, for whatever reason.
I guess what I've learned is that my personal favorites do not match up with the Nancy Drew community at large.
