Second Chance is a device that you can use in the Nancy Drew games. Second Chance lets you get a second chance at doing something after you've died from doing that same thing the wrong way. In the beginning of the games, the Second Chance button was listed as a book in the menu. Currently, the option of Second Chance comes up after you have died in a game with a sequence like this: "The Good News is... The Bad News is...". In some second chances you actually die while others end with a phone call or talking to someone in the game who kicks you 'off the case'. The Second Chance method has saved many players from certain death, and (thank goodness) can be used as many times as is needed to complete the task.
