I've been playing "The Veil of Mystery : Seven Little Gnomes" but have finally given up rolleyes

The story was OK but the in-game controls were inconsistent. I was repeatedly having to go back and search places again because of this and eventually got way too fed up of doing so !! thumbsdown

So I uninstalled the game and moved on to "Haunted Hotel : The Evil Inside" instead - and am VERY much enjoying it happydance

I am finally playing MCF: 13th Skull. I've had the game on disc, since it came out but never played it. I started it last night and today I am asking myself why, why, why, did I want to play this game. It is hard!! I like it though so far. lol

Oh, I really liked that game, oldbroad! But I agree with you that it was quite difficult in spots.

I think The 13th Skull is the best of the MCF games!

I'm just glad that some of the puzzles don't need to be solved immediately in order to move forward. I've got two at the moment that are on hold, but still able to do a bunch of other stuff. I already have 11 hours in the game and it looks like a lot more to go.

Me, too, Drac. It was terrific. It is dotted with difficult puzzles, but I like games like that.

I do too Reenie, but lately the casuals I've been playing are on the easy side while I try to focus on some adventure games. That "why, why, why" is my lame type of joking.

You, Family, and Oldbroad got me started replaying.

I grew up in New Orleans. One of the first good things I noticed about 13th Skull is that somebody bothered with a bit of research. It's probably not coincidental that the dog is a Chihuahua and the bag of coffee in the refrigerator has a label reading "chicory." Sure, the sandwich would have been a poor-boy; labeling it a sub was an editorial choice for clarity. There are plenty of departures from verisimilitude; enough is maintained to give the characters and environment depth.

As a child I went on a couple of picnics with a local historian and family, one to a derelict plantation house, another to a fort. The ostensible purpose was treasure hunting; really it was to have a picnic and entertain us. The legends of treasure from various sources did exist.

I finished my Haunted Hotel game in record time (for me, anyway) because it was so enjoyable - and now I've started on The Legacy : Forgotten Gate happydance

And as it, too, is also shaping up to be a real goodie, I will probably take myself off to Big Fish later to buy the sequel laugh

Good luck, oldbroad!

Nice to hear how much you enjoyed the Haunted Hotel game, Mad. Today is a buy-one-get-one-free day on Big Fish, so a good day for new purchases. yes

Have fun Mad!

Thanks Marian. I'm about ready to consult the walkthrough (unless you have any hints for that puzzle above the casket with the 4 coins on chains). I can't figure it out.
