In the most exciting adventure yet, players will work to uncover the mastermind behind a series of unsolved thefts that have taken place in Venice -- one of the world's most unique cities known for its interlocking canals and sleek gondolas. In the 18th installment of the award-winning adventure series, the Italian police have asked Nancy Drew for help in unraveling a crime ring that is threatening to steal all of Venice's priceless artifacts. Assuming the role of Nancy, players arrive in Venice during Carnival and begin taking on a series of challenges, including an undercover spy mission for the Italian police. Along the way, players must take advantage of the unique Venetian culture such as learning the language and navigating the transportation system (gondola or walking) to accomplish the mission at hand. As the game progresses, the masked thief becomes bolder and players will need to correctly identify the phantom before he or she goes too far.

Features:

  • Master Italian as you dig for clues
  • Create a fashion statement or a new disguise
  • Travel the canals and listen to singing gondoliers
  • Deal out the fun in the Italian card game Scopa
  • Cover costs with creative ways to earn Euros

Storyline:
Somewhere beyond the bright piazzas and open markets of the Venice Carnevale lurks a masked thief. Despite months of investigations, the Italian police remain helpless as stolen treasures vanish in the night. That's why the authorities asked you, as detective Nancy Drew, to join the case, to infiltrate a dangerous crime syndicate and catch this phantom thief before he or she destroys the heart of Venice!

SUSPECT PROFILES

Colin Baxter
Colin, a handsome art restorer, is restoring the Ca Nascosta for very little money, even though heĂs one of the best in his field. He claims to love art and works for near nothing because it is his passion. His job allows him to gain access to valuable artifacts, making him the perfect candidate for the thefts. Would he steal the treasures and sell them on the black market?

La Contessa Margherita Fauberg
Recently widowed, Margherita inherited a large sum of money after her husband passed away and purchased the Ca Nascosta to cement her status as a Venetian socialite. Her frivolous spending habits may have caused her to fall upon hard times, and she would do anything to stay in her elite circle of wealthy friends - including the theft and sale of priceless artifacts?

Helena Berg
Helena specializes in reporting high profile crimes. She covered the bust of the infamous Machiano Crime Syndicate and traveled to Venice to report on the recent thefts. Ambitious and calculating, Helena is extremely knowledgeable about the failures and successes of crime rings, but is she telling everything she knows, or does she have her own agenda?

Enrico Tazza
Originally a member of the Machiano Crime Syndicate and a guard for stolen goods, Enrico escaped jail time because the police could never find the items he supposedly guarded. Now Enrico runs a private club called the Casa dei Giochi (House of Cards), but is it just a front for another crime ring? After all, he has the connections and the knowledge to steal the artifacts, so whatĂs stopping him?

Antonio Fango
The prime suspect in the case, Mr. Fango installed modern conveniences for the houses where priceless artifacts were stolen. Tech savvy Antonio knows his way around security systems and may be communicating with the crime ring. Unfortunately, authorities have no evidence against him. Is he committing crimes so perfectly that no clues are left behind?
