I sure understand the siren call of Morrowind, Mad. yes

And starting over with the casual is what I would probably do, too. smile

I started Enchanted Kingdom: Master of Riddles very late last night. When I got to the first puzzle I stopped, so no opinion yet.

I also added two games to my "fill in time / relaxation" games. Now I have 7 different types going, some with multiples. The two I added are Divine Journey: The Life of Jesus (trying to see if I can learn anything but it is just as hard as trying to read the Bible) and Flowers Mosaics. Divine Journey has 25 chapters each with 4 mini games and an Angel to find. If you miss the angel and go back to try to find it you have to replay that particular mini game. There are multiple different mini games including (but not only), jigsaw puzzles, find the difference, slider type, swap type, and nonograms. The nonograms is what prompted me to try Flowers Mosaics which I purchased not too long ago in a bundle and it has three different timed modes and an untimed mode. I tried timed and on the second puzzle I knew that would not work for me! It has 3 stars but if you make even one mistake you don't get that star. I have replayed a few of them already to get the 3 stars. I do like both of the games.

I just finished "Dark City: Amsterdam" and enjoyed it very much. Now I'm going to download the demo of "City Legends: Witness in the Rye". The reviews on Big Fish aren't very good, but I want to make up my own mind based on the demo.

I would definitely be playing in untimed mode with Flowers Mosaics. I don't want to be timed with something like that.

I have been playing Delicious: Emily's Taste of Fame and have 10 levels left.

Otherwise, I am still playing Phantasmat: Town of Lost Hope. Also thinking of replaying a Nancy Drew game, maybe even one of the Dossier games. It has been a long time since I have played those.

Hi, Marian!

I was disappointed when they stopped making the Nancy Drew Dossier games because I really enjoyed the two I played.

Have a nice weekend!

Susan, I was very disappointed about Ship of Shadows getting canned - and from what I have read, it was well along in the production process too.

And you too have a nice weekend. wave

Hi, Marian!

I remember reading that the third game was stopped in the middle of production, and still don't know why. I downloaded "Resorting to Danger" and wasn't sure if it would run on my Windows 10 computer but, so far, so good happydance !

That is good news, Susan. I have seen people with Windows 11 saying they have gotten all the ND games to run, which is reassuring. I really enjoyed Resorting to Danger. smile

Have fun with Resorting to Danger, Susan!

Marian, have you played Flowers Mosaics or any of the other mosaic games? I have done some nonogram puzzles in other games but this is the first full game for me. It is quite hard! I may have to rethink getting all 3 stars as I have had to resort to pen and paper (I'm only on the 10th puzzle) to write down filled spaces because I had to restart it several times. One restart was because I wrote down the wrong thing. The game is supposed to be filler when I'm short on time and something relaxing. It's not turning out that way so far. I may have to check the settings to see if I can just eliminate the stars so they don't distract me. crazy

Ob, I have Fantasy Mosaics #24 and #37, and I am pretty sure that's it. I haven't finished them, though. I did not find them to be all that easy.

Hi, oldbroad!

Thanks! "Resorting to Danger" and "Lights, Camera, Curses" were two of the first games I bought when I joined Big Fish in 2009 and I really enjoyed them. I had forgotten all about them until Marian mentioned that she was thinking of replaying them so I decided to as well.

I think my first nonogram puzzle was in one of the Nancy Drew adventure games., so maybe I'll check out the mosaics series and see how I do with the demo.

Hi, Marian!

Thank you! I remember it took me forever to complete, but it really was fun.

Ooh, I haven't played Shadow at the Water's Edge yet.

I think I should replay the Dossier games one of these days also, especially since I re-purchased them for download not too long ago. I wrote in my notes for Lights, Camera, Curses that I "played 2X but didn't unlock special", whatever that means.

I have a disc of Cruel Games: Red Riding Hood that included a game called World Mosaics 5 on it but I never played it and it will not open on my Windows 7 computer. Besides the game I'm playing, I bought one earlier this week in a bundle called Legendary Mosaics: The Dwarf and the Terrible Cat. I'll probably try more of them as they show up in bundles.

Ob, I haven't unlocked the special on the Dossier games either. I believe you have to end up with a certain performance/number of points in order to unlock it.

Shadow at the Water's Edge has some very challenging puzzles in it.

I thought the Legendary Mosaics game looked cute although I haven't purchased it as yet.

Marian, if you are interested in any of the bundle games, they will probably be changing around Monday.

I started Real Crimes: The Unicorn Killer tonight in Windows 7. I'm playing in timed mode and the first scene was taking me time to get focused, and every 15 seconds there would be a pop up telling me what I was supposed to be doing or that I could use a hint or something. It was making me crazy! I did end up having to play the scene twice but then I got settled in. It is mostly all hog but there are some other puzzles such as matching fingerprints.

I have been playing a game from 2009 that I found in my Purchase History, a match 3 game called World Adventure. It is quite different from other match 3 games I have played and also involves some strategic elements. It started out relatively easy but has gotten progressively more difficult. I doubt that I will be playing it straight on through as I am presently stuck on a level so will probably find something else to play today and return to this one from time to time.

I have Unicorn Killer but I don't think I have ever played the whole thing.

Well, I am still failing that match 3 level so I started playing James Patterson Women's Murder Club: A Darker Shade of Grey. I am finding it pretty entertaining. I have had this game for years but have never played it before.

I have played all of the Women's Murder Club games (and read all ? or most of the books). I only have the games on disc though. I liked them.

I finished The Unicorn Killer last night. It is only a 2 hour game smile. Not sure just yet what is up next.

Now I know what game to choose when I am in the mood for a short game. smile

And this particular Women's Murder Club I am playing was designed by Jane Jensen - I had forgotten that.

I started Sinister City tonight. I only played for a half hour so far. I am not sure about it. It's different which is good but there are only two modes. Easy mode points everything out to you and advanced mode makes you click on everything. I don't like either of those options. You can change it during gameplay so that is good I guess. If I get tired of clicking around I can change to being led around, and vice versa.

I have Sinister City but haven't played it yet. I will be interested to hear more about it as you play the game. I have enjoyed some of the developer's other casuals.

Marian, I am not finding this game fun at all. I think it could have made a good game but (for me) it is not. I can barely stand to play it for a half hour at a time and cannot wait to finish it. Some of the puzzles are very easy and then some are just annoying. I skipped three of them already.

I have a couple of their other games but I think this is the first one I am playing. Which ones have you played?
