Whoa, surprising what you find on the web...

Feeling like this game could be murder... literally? Well, come on in here for some extra detective work (and clues/hints/etc!) for the Laura Bow games (The Colonel's Bequest and The Dagger of Amon Ra).

It has been modified just recently, so it is not a dead site. However, SHP and the
other Sierra Forums are missing from the links page :| . Perhaps someone should let them know about the Sierra Community sites.

While the focus of the site is very narrow, only LB1, the content is very nice and it would be great to add them to our community!

In some ways I think concentrating on one game (or one series) is a better way to do it. While having a ton of info about different games in one spot is definitely nice, that seems to water down the overall content UNLESS you have some very dedicated people working on it.

We should decide WHO contacts this guy. If we don't, he'll get a million emails all at once.

Thanks for taking the time to e-mail us, it's always a pleasure to hear from fans.
I am the other co-author colonelsbequest.net, if all went well you also received an e-mail by the other one known as Henri :-).

Also my congratulations for your site and many thanks for your links. I'll make sure they are both added to our Link page soon.
I am registering myself right now on SieraHelp forum, a site I was not aware of yet. Will ask on their forum whether they want to make a link to us as well, asking should never hurt anyone :)

I liked the blog-stlye of your Larry site a lot. quite refreshing!

Keep up the good work!

Best regards,
Vincent

Thanks for your message.
At first sight your Larry Laffer site looks very nice! I will soon take more time to look at it :-)

Always nice to see that there are more Sierra fans out there that still appreciate these (fantastic!) old games :>

Sierrahelp.com indeed is a good resource as well.

Kind regards,
Henri Dijon :-)

It really is. And their site inspired me to try something I had always wanted to do. But that simple task has grown into something... bigger. It's going to take forever to do the whole thing... but hoping to at least finish LSL1EGA part of it within a week or two.
