Thanks Ana. It looks like maybe this one will be lots of exploring and maybe not to many "tasks" to do!

Thanks for the news, Ana. smile

The plot outline seems very close to an earlier Nancy game, Haunting of Castle Malloy.

I'm surprised by the fact that we still don't know exactly *where* this game is going to take place, although I heard that the game has been confirmed as being in the Deep South. Usually the locale is pretty much announced. wave

Rushes, I was thinking the same thing - only that was the groom who disappeared. People better stop inviting Nancy to their weddings! However, this looks like a fun game and I can't wait to get it.

Thanks so much Ana---I'm really excited about this one!

I just went to Her Interactive website to order the game, and all I can see is a coming soon message. I want to buy the physical copy. Am I too early? It is 7:30 am here in Ontario.

I read that preorders for the game should start around 11 a.m. PST today. There is also supposed to be a new trailer released today too (maybe around the same time as the preorders start). wave

Just did. Can't believe the cost of shipping and handling---over $11.00 U S to ship to Canada. So it went from being a $ 19.99 game to over $31.00 US.

That's outrageous, dorish! I live in Fairbanks, AK and we often have the same issue with shipping costs even with items coming from the lower 48. Sometimes, places won't even ship here at all.

It's one of the reasons I've been going with game downloads.

i am sorry you hate the bonus edtion, that what you are getting when you preorder, if you don't want it get it from big fish, are somweother site.

Re: Nancy Drew®: Ghost of Thornton Hall Website Now LIve - Preorders Start April 9 - 04/11/13 10:17 AM

Hi, Doreen!

I also could not believe what "Her Interactive" charges to ship games to Canada because Dave at Interact only charged $4.95. Since the Canadian dollar is low at the moment, it will cost more than $31 after the bank charges 2.5% to convert from US to Canadian dollars.

I'm going to wait and see if Amazon.ca has the game and, if not, I guess I'll have to miss out on this one. If I couldn't find a game here in Canada, I'd always order from Dave at Interact. Sadly, that option is no longer available.

There is always the download option available from Her Interactive if the shipping costs are prohibitive for the boxed version, although I know that there are some who would prefer to have the box and the DVD. wave
Posted by: Susie07

Re: Nancy Drew®: Ghost of Thornton Hall Website Now LIve - Preorders Start April 9 - 04/11/13 01:54 PM

Hi, Marian!

I am one of those who prefers the box and DVD so I'll have something to throw out whenever I de-clutter 10 years later laugh ! HOWEVER, a box and DVD are not worth an extra $12, which is what it would work out to when you factor in the US exchange rate and 2.5% the bank takes for the conversion. Amazon.ca usually eventually gets all of the Nancy Drew games, so I think I'll wait and order from them. If I add something else to my order to bring the total up to $25, I'll get free shipping.

Susie, you'll have to make sure all items you order from amazon is listed as eligible for the super saver shipping (not everything is), and if you prefer the deluxe/bonus edition of the game, you won't get that on Amazon, unfortunately.
Posted by: Susie07

Re: Nancy Drew®: Ghost of Thornton Hall Website Now LIve - Preorders Start April 9 - 04/13/13 03:48 PM

Hi, NDLVR!

Thanks for the heads up. So far, I have never purchased anything from Amazon that hasn't qualified for free shipping, but I'll be sure to keep my eyes open.

I'm sorry to hear that, family. There should still be plenty of time to get things straightened out before preorders start shipping, I would think. wave

Got an email from Her Interactive saying that quantities are running low for the preorder Bonus Edition for Ghost of Thornton Hall. So, if anyone is still thinking about placing an order, I would recommend doing it sooner rather than later. wave

I see they announced that they were giving out the strategy guide downloads now, not the game.

Re: Nancy Drew®: Ghost of Thornton Hall Website Now LIve - Preorders Start April 9 - 05/08/13 02:56 PM

When MaG receives her copy of the game, I'm sure she will be diligently working on a walkthrough after that; until that time, we will all just have to keep a stiff upper lip and soldier on. grin

Hopefully there will be other players to assist in the meantime; and there are also the in-game hints available now, which can be helpful too. smile
