Good morning everyone and welcome to the Casual Friday casual game update. Though this week, it’s not really worth the effort. Pessimistic? Perhaps, but it’s hard to put a good spin on only two new casual games. Only two hidden object games were released. On the plus side, each are available for both Windows and Macs. On the downside, both are Collector’s Editions, which means it’ll cost you $13.99 to buy them from Big Fish Games with their whole Game Club. So if you think either sounds intriguing, you’ll have to wait a week or so for the cheaper standard version. Not to mention both games are inspired by classic tales, The Gold Bug by Edgar Allan Poe and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving.

There is no GamerTell best bet this week.

Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe’s The Gold Bug Collector’s Edition

Cursed Fates: The Headless Horseman Collector’s Edition

Editor’s Note: Due to so many casual games sites offering game plans or preferred member prices, which can cause a game to have multiple price-points, the games’ average retail prices is mentioned in Casual Friday.
