Product Description

A brazen thief steals a priceless artifact while Nancy Drew sets up an exhibit of ancient Maya treasures in the very next room. The only clue left behind is a mysterious scarlet handprint, the meaning of which was entombed centuries ago amongst the relics.

Players, as Nancy Drew, must use their sleuthing skills to track the thief’s sinister blood-red signature through a maze of long-buried secrets. Is the thief stealing for money or as part of a more ominous plan? To solve the case Nancy ventures beyond the museum to visit several Washington D.C. locations. Using the subway, she makes her way to the Mexican Consulate, a hospital, and an art dealership in search of clues. Along the way she meets a variety of fascinating characters, all with secrets to hide. As Nancy digs deeper into the thefts, it becomes clear that she has unearthed a complex and sinister plot with roots dating back thousands of years.

I have played all the Nancy Drew titles from Her Interactive, and Secret of the Scarlet Hand (based on Nancy Drew book 125) is the best (and most impressive) of the lot. In this adventure Nancy is the new deputy curator at Beech Hill Museum in Washington D.C. The museum is almost ready to open its most impressive exhibit: a large collection of priceless Maya artifacts on loan from the Mexican government and private collectors. But shortly before the opening, one of the prized jade carvings is stolen from under Nancy's nose. The only clue is a vivid red handprint and a message in Maya glyphs left by the thief.
First, let me say that, as someone who is seriously considering a master's degree in museum studies, this game was an absolute delight! The museum is filled with nooks and crannies to explore: the curator's office, the exhibition hall, a three-storey Maya temple, gardens, shipping and receiving and the lab, filled with neat gadgets such as an analyzer, foam packing machine, ham radio and more, all of which help Nancy on her quest.
"Secret of the Scarlet Hand" simply offers more locations than previous games, more characters/suspects, and a much deeper storyline. Nancy travels to different locations by subway, with a static image overlay as the various station lights light up on the metro map. Graphics are, as always, beautiful. The Maya artifacts are photo realistic, extremely detailed and vibrant. Music and ambient sounds are more pronounced than in previous ND games. The score features haunting panpipes, rainforest birdcalls, and flamenco, along with more ominous mood music-although some reviewers though the music was too repetitive, I found that the soundtrack greatly enhanced the gaming experience.
This is definitely the most educational of the Nancy Drew games.

The product was received on time, however, I received a multi-pack game set instead of just the one game. I thought this was great (more games), but my daughter really wanted the box for her collection!

I purchased this game in 2003 to play with my autistic grandson. He became so intrigued with the Mayan Glyphs that he has since gone on to learn to read all the Mayan glyphs at Palenque. It is now 2012 and he is just finishing off "The Temple of the Inscriptions." Who would have thought that such a great game would have taken us on such a wonderful journey. Thank you all at Her Interactive. You have enriched our lives in ways you couldn't have imagined.

I have played 5 Nancy Drew games. This was my 2nd. It was definetely the hardest. You investigate a theft in a Washington museum, as Nancy Drew! Everything was very challenging. You never had a moment of rest- there was always one thing or another that you could do. The tasks, the HAM radio, the 6 keys... Ok, I won't spoil anymore. All I can say, this one wasn't on my favorite list, but it was as great as the other Nancy Drews! Keep them coming!
P.S. Who says you have to follow the rules? In this museum, you are certainly going to have break some!

In this Nancy Drew Interactive Mystery game, Nancy Drew gets an internship as deputy curator in Washington D.C. at Beech Hill Museam. But just before the new Mayan exhibit is to be launched, one of the museam's most valuble artifacts is stolen! This game is super fun and one of the best Nancy Drew games avalible! It has some flaws with the plot, and sometimes gets a litte frustrating, but this game is still great. If you like challenging puzzles, and are intrested in learning a little more about ancient Maya life, this game is for you!!!
