Team Nancy Drew

Team Nancy Drew in Florida for MineCon 2013

Team Nancy Drew is comprised of Guude, PauseUnpause, VintageBeef, and W92Baj. The team was formed in March 2012 when they were investigating Pakratt0013's unfinished Furnace Prison prank on Guude. As the prank was very elaborate and unfinished, they had great difficulty trying to figure out how it was meant to have worked. It was Pause who first said, "we gotta Nancy Drew this",[1] after fictional detective Nancy Drew. The phrase "Team Nancy Drew" came about when Guude went to place a sign leaving a record of them exposing the prank, Pause's earlier reference to Nancy Drew prompted Beef to suggest that Guude write "Busted --Team Nancy Drew".[2]

A team flair was first available on r/mindcrack on 18 June 2012.[3] After being retired,[citation needed] the flair returned in March 2015.[4] During UHC Season 20, a limited edition flair reading "UHC XX - Team Nancy Drew" was available.

In October 2012, Team Nancy Drew came together in the server to help create a story to introduce new member BlameTC. The story begins with a discovery of a scavenger hunt, leading to an adventure[5] and ending with the slaying of the Wither and the appearance of Blame the Controller. Apparently the scavenger hunt was set up for the children at an orphanage for Halloween.[6] Guude wanted a more interesting and entertaining way of introducing BTC to everybody.[7]


In addition to the games below Team Nancy Drew has played Shoot Many Robots,[8] Bunch of Heroes,[9] and Feed the Beast together.
