HTGYG Show #140: Twelve Days of Christmas Day 5: Nancy Drew Video Games!

How To Grow Your Geek: Parenting and More! show

Summary: I’m making up for no shows in November by giving you a 12 Days of Christmas Geeky Gift Guide! I’ll recommend a great geeky gift for your kids for the first 12 days of Christmas, and since I started a day early, it’ll actually be a baker’s dozen of 13! (If you have recommendations, please send them to me at or @susiethegeek on Twitter!) Today, I’ve got my daughter Amanda here to tell you about one of her favorite things, the Nancy Drew video games produced by HerInteractive. There are already 27 titles in the series, but you can start anywhere! They’re almost all available for Windows and Mac systems, and they’re each $20 or less, depending on whether you want to download them or get a physical boxed copy. These have been great for teaching Amanda to flex her mental mystery-solving muscles! Please email me with your own comments at howtogrowyourgeek-at-gmail-dot-com, or call my voicemail number at (678) 235-GROW (4769) and leave your thoughts. And last but not least, you can follow me on Twitter at @SusietheGeek or the show at @HowToGrowGeek, on Goodreads as SusieMurph, and on Google+ as +SusieMurph!
