I'm not sure about the most recent ones -- The Deadly Device was the last that I played -- but I found most, if not all, of the earlier games to have challenging puzzles that sent me scuttling to MaG's walkthrough for a furtive peep or two (or three). There are maybe only a couple of Nancys that I've played through without any help whatsoever. If they're harder now than what they were, then yikes! scared

I always started out a ND with a pad of paper and pencil. They always required lots of note taking.

No I haven't found them any harder in general, though the one I thought was the easiest was also one of the earliest.

Are there any nancy drew games where you dont have to perform chores, like driving a car or picking vegetables?

Absolutely. Some examples would be Ghost of Thornton Hall, The Deadly Device, Sea of Darkness, and Tomb of the Lost Queen. There are others, as well.

Thanks Marian. This has been what has kept me from trying any more of these games. I will give those a try...

Let me know if you need more titles - there are plenty more that do not have driving and/or are heavily chore-based. smile
