All these games look and play exactly the same and they ALL begin with the main character receiving a mysterious letter from a mysterious relative tasking them with coming to a mysterious location only to apparently stand them up. Mysteriously.

What adds to the mystery is how I's still buy and play these games eventually despite that.

That isn't a mystery at all; it is in fact, a semi-common affliction known as "Gamer's Folly." I happen to be a fellow sufferer; mine manifests itself mostly through visual contact with Match-3 titles.

For those new to HOG's (hidden object games) this one is a bit of a hybrid and is generally referred to as a FROG (fragmented object game). You search for fragments of items and once you have found all the pieces, you use the item in some way.

This game is great fun
