    Hi I am new!!!

    Post by heleanthia on Wed Feb 19, 2014 12:36 pm

    Hello, I am new; I live over at Challengers(lol) and saw the reference to this site...
    Being a nosy parker,(although, as I love mysteries, I prefer to say I am like a detective...lol) here I am!

    My name is Mary and I live in B.C., Canada. 
    We live on Vancouver island( which is across from Vancouver, just to confuse things...) and are fortunate enough to seldom get snow in the winter!
    In fact(shh) we have had a very mild one, so far!

     I love adventure games(especially point and click) , word games and puzzles...I am not a fan of timed  stuff though...lol 

    I just finished playing the Raven and as usual, am thinking, "now what" ...lol as it was so good...Clap 

    Anyhow, hoping to meet a lot of you!

    Smile

    Welcome Heleanthia - I divide my time between here and The Pub.  Both are great sites.  Challengers is too.  Genki does a wonderful job with this site.  I read a lot more than I post though as there is just so much interesting stuff here.

    I enjoy HOPA games the most but will play most anything. I, like you, do not play anything timed though.  I don't really enjoy the building games that much either.

    I did not realize there was any place in Canada that didn't get snow.  LOL  I live in North Carolina and we have had lots of snow this winter which is unusual for us.  Today is like spring though and my spirits are lifting!

    So glad you are here.  Look forward to seeing you around.

    Hey heleanthia, nice to meet you   Smile 

    I love adventure games, hidden object games, point & click games, scary horror games, fantasy sci-fi games, and anything in between   Big smile 

    I live in Bonny Scotland, and we've been very lucky, and avoiding the snow.  We've had some snow in the air, but it hasn't been laying.  We've had some rain though   Wink

    Thanks everyone! 
    Volnole; 
    We know more about the USA than you know about us, I think...lol...its because we get a lot of American tv stations...
    Canada is very diverse...many different climates  . The west coast is very different from the east and  also as we are at sea level, it makes it milder still.
    Hi Frodo!
    My dad was born in, "bonny Scotland"; inPortobello( just outside Edinburgh, to the others)
    I am first generation Canadian !
    Have you played The Lost Crown?
    Many of us waiting for the next..Last Crown"( waiting , wasiting, waiting..lol)

    Can you believe I am still playing Raven?  I am on Chapter 2,  went through a whole lot of conversations,
    then stopped without saving    D\\'oh! Will be tackling that tomorrow,  seeing as I am not getting
    to far in Doorways.   I am figuring  you probably read about the Doorways  game play that I mentioned
    over in Challengers   Big smile    so I will proudly take credit for your being here!!   Snicker

    Hello Everyone!  I am new and I am looking forward to joining you all.  Thank you to JustTheFacts for introducing me.  I am a long-time member of The Pond who was missing our wonderful Chit Chat and I had no idea that this forum existed.  Needless to say, I am thrilled. 

    I am Coffeemom2 over there, but it's springtime and the sun is shining today, so I decided
     a fresh, new name was in order.   So, MorningGlory it is!  I am sure there is lots to learn and I can't wait to get started and to meet everyone!   FLOWERRS

    Thank you, Esme, Frodo and Genkicoll!  The links will be very helpful, as I believe I've made a mistake already, by posting in Heleanthia's personal introduction thread.  See, I knew there would be lots to learn!

    That totally doesn't matter, I don't think anyway. We're pretty friendly around here and no one seems to get her undies in a bunch, which is nice.  Big smile 

    I tend to post a lot in the D&E thread, though that might actually be a deterrent rather than a compelling reason to drop by. I tend to be a smarty-pants.  Sweat drop
