"Secret of the Scarlet Hand" is the sixth game in the series of Nancy Drew computer games. It is based on the book of the same name.

Plot

The museum is devoted to the Maya culture and will soon be exhibiting a monolith that had just been found, to the public. However, shortly before the exhibition, one of the museum's most treasured pieces, a jade carving of the Mayan King Pacal's head, is stolen. A little bit after that, one of the museum's translators falls off some steps, hits his head and gets amnesia. Nancy was working at the museum when this all happened and wants to know what happens. She gets permission from the museum curator to sleuth around because the police have no leads. This game takes place in Washington D.C.

Characters

Nancy Drew - A detective who solves the cases. She is an unseen character.

Joanna Riggs - Joanna is the curator of Beech Hill Museum. She knows a few Latin phrases and is usually all-business. But is there something lurking in her past?

Henrik van der Hune - Henrik is the epigrapher of Beech Hill Museum. He was hired by Joanna from the Chaco Canyon Cultural Center or CCCC, where he worked before. But is a basic past a coverup from something sinister?

Taylor Sinclair - Taylor is an art dealer with an office in Washington, D.C. He doesn't get great commission, though. Is he a suspect?

Alejandro del Rio - Alejandro is an attaché at Mexican Consulate in Washington, D.C, and knows several languages, including Spanish, English, and Nahuatl. Does he take the artifacts to reclaim his country's pride?

Nurse Bluefoot - A guy nurse later on the game. Nurse Bluefoot is an unseen character.

Prudence Rutherford - Prudence is a woman who owns one of the Pacal jades. She can be reached by phone, but remains an unseen character.

Poppy Dada - She is an artist whose real name is Penelope Daddle. Her father is Henry Albert Daddle. She is an unseen character.

Accidents

As with all Nancy Drew games, in "Secret of the Scarlet Hand", there are many fatal accidents, such as:

*Getting electrocuted by the HAM radio
*Dropping the Mayan calendar stones
*Not using the glowstick to get out of the tunnel
*Not escaping the monolith in time and suffocating

However, if the player makes a mistake, they may click on "Second Chance" at the main menu and it will take them back to the place before they made that mistake.
