Description

Traveling to Manhattan to attend the Videomundo Corporation's National Hack Attack tournament, Joe, Frank, and Chet are soon embroiled in a city-wide video game mystery.

Reviewed on 31st December 2022

The Hardys and Chet spend book 106 in New York, where Joe is playing in an early esports championship - until someone starts stealing all the game cartridges.

It’s actually a delightfully retro story in retrospect, inspiring nostalgia for the early 90s, but at the time would have been the height of modernity.

The story suffers from reverting to some older tropes though - I don’t think there was a single female character in the entire book.
