boy do I need help!
First I didn't save the game right, so this is my 3rd time around.....anyway. Are there any screen shots to show you how to play the Bard Bounce? I am not getting anywhere, not good at this kind of thing LOL
Also, my girl Nancy is down to 45 cents, has already gotten stuck picking up bolts in the garage, so how can she earn some more cash? Asking Daddy (my choice) doesn't seem to be an option. Thanks for any help!!!

HELP! I missed looking at the note in emily's drawer - now the game won't let me go back & it won't accept the code to open the bottom of the big clock, even though I am keying in the correct code (which I found online). ! I know I am close to the end & I REALLY don't want to have to start WAY back from the scene where I SHOULD have looked in emily's drawer!
Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem, or to get emily out of her room so I can look at the letter? Everytime I try she keeps saying "you don't need to look at everything in there, do you?"
AHHHHHHH!!!

I'm not sure if you have gotten to the part where you have to sew that dress, but that's where Emily leaves for town and you can get a peek at that letter in her drawer. After you ask her permission to use the sewing machine and discover there's no needle, go downstairs and talk to Jane about the needle. When you're done rearranging her pies for her and get the needle, go upstairs and find that Emily went into town. I don't know if you still need this help or not, but I hope it helps!

I really liked this game. It was shorter than the other Nancy Drew game I had played (Curse of Blackmoor Manor) and I was able to finish this one in a day. I think my biggest problem was avoiding those potholes so I didn't get a flat tire. Overall I really like the Nancy Drew games. I noticed that there a few Nancy Drew games not offered on the BFG site. Does anyone know if will eventually offer them all? I prefer to buy my games from this site.

Good morning:

I am new here, and have purchased this game, my second Nancy Drew. I ended up at the fishing pond and have been here for four days and cannot catch that blasted 19 inch fish. I'[ve read that the way to catch him is to get your rod in the grassbeds to my right. But please tell me how to aim the poles, please? Thanks so much.

Bonnie

You know, as soon as I posted this, I realized that I was clicking on the rod, and I should have been clocking on a spot in the lake! DUH! As soon as I went back to the game, did that, I got the fish!

Maybe you did not do the 3rd one correctly if Bottom is now showing up.

Overall I really enjoyed this game, although it is clearly aimed at a younger audience and some of the game play is very annoying and repetitious. "The Secret of the Old Clock" was one of my favorite Nancy Drew books. I was lucky enough to read my mother's original editions before they were modernized and enjoyed the late 1920's setting of the game. I also particularly enjoyed the voice actress playing Jane Willoughby -- Sarah Papineau. She was so very the 1930's "chippie" that I expected to hear gum smacking!

PROS: The game play is mostly non-linear which is very enjoyable as it lets you spend time exploring, discovering and getting familiar with the game controls and environment.
The puzzles are for the most part challenging enough to keep your interest.
The artwork and scenes are clearly drawn.
The sub game of earning money is fun, though distracting.
A "Pro" for me, which may be a "Con" for others, is that you need to keep notes unless you have a very good memory. Or unless you don't mind running back and forth between scenes.

CONS: Repetitious - It takes over 21 clicks to move between the houses. There should be some better way moving between locations, once you have taken the long route.
Dialogue is repeated over and over with no way to skip dialog which you’ve already heard.
Two of the sub games are very difficult unless you have good mouse skills – the miniature golf game and sewing the dress. I somewhat enjoyed the golf but detested the sewing challenge.

Overall a 4 out of 5

To erojo - I can not get the code of the old gate house
tessie1982 - I am also stuck on the barn doors

And others:

You actually have to complete the tasks to find the code words for the garage, even though you know them: win the Bard's game; finish the miniature golf game at or under par (21 points); read the book on the bed in Emily's room; and talk to people to find out Emily's mother's middle name.

Giving people the answers without telling them that they actually have to complete the puzzles for the answers to be of use is very frustrating.

To get eh code of the old gate house..You just need to fine the book that Josiah has in his house.. asking 4 questions that you need to find the answers.. when you find the answers just put those answers on the four openings completely and it should open!
