Our family (well, at least all the girls in our family) love playing the Nancy Drew computer games. Since the first one came out, we've been hooked! Now each time a new game is released, it means only one thing-Girls Night every evening until we complete the game! Back in May a new game released called Nancy Drew: Tomb of The Lost Queen, so as usual, it meant a series of Girls Nights!
I was able to download the game, and we wasted no time diving into the mystery. This mystery is set in Egypt, where you, as Nancy Drew, are undercover as a student archaeologist! On the very day you arrive, the professor leading the dig is injured, and flown out to a hospital-leaving you to deal with mystery and danger by yourself! As with all the Nancy drew mystery games, Tomb of The Lost Queen challenges you with puzzles, codes, and other fun experiences. Trying to stay safe while digging up secrets about the other team members isn't always easy, so Nancy must stay on her toes at all times!
After playing so many Nancy Drew games, I have gotten to where I can usually tell who the "bad guy" is. It took a little longer with Tomb of The Lost Queen, and even though I was correct, there was still a twist I didn't expect! Overall, I really liked the newest release in the Nancy Drew games. There was more danger that has been missing from a few of the more recent games, and while the puzzles were challenging, they weren't impossible. It really kept everyone's attention (even the 11 year old), and we had a lot of fun solving the mystery and learning some history at the same time!
