The Last Will & Testament of Roland Kingsley is a one of a kind experience your guests will be talking about for years to come! Unlike our other mystery games, this one does not have a victim in the cast of players - the victim is disclosed upfront (Roland Kingsley). This in-person (face-to-face) game is for ages 16 and up for difficulty, and has 8-18 players. This game is not for novices - only choose this game if you're in for a challenge and serious sleuthing! Two 6 character expansion packs are available, so you can play with up to 50 players (see the breakdown below). This is the instant download upon purchase. You'll have everything you need to play the game at click of a button once you purchase the game. No need to wait, no shipping fees. For the boxed kit, see below under 'Helpful Links.'
Each player has a character webpage that includes a detailed background and costume suggestions with links. The players can read about their character, as well as study up on others that will be at the party, if they desire. There are two required videos to play during the game, and an optional one to play during the game, and one that's available on the YourMysteryParty.com pregame guest site. Everything should be considered evidence, so your guests can start sleuthing before the party ever begins! No way to play videos for the guests? No worries, we'll give you backup script/transcript files for the required videos. However, the videos are able to be downloaded prior to the game - so no WiFi is needed to host the game.
With this game, you will have multiple items to download: host instructions, printable file, solution file, back-up transcripts, it's optional to download the required videos (as you can stream from YouTube or Vimeo), and a free invitation.
Game release date: August, 2017, updated August 2021.
Roland Kingsley is an American businessman, investor, and philanthropist. Famous for creating the number one social media application known as Yipper, Roland has notoriously created foes during his ladder climb to the top. (Check out Roland's recent expose on RBC News.) Roland was recently listed on the Fordes Magazine list of the richest people in the world with his estate being worth billions.
The world was shocked to hear of his untimely demise last Tuesday. The coroner has declared the death a suicide, but many have demanded further investigation. You received a letter from the family lawyer to attend the reading of the Last Will and Testament in the Kingsley Mansion on the outskirts of Godley Hollow. This is where your story begins.

I have never hosted a murder mystery before, so I did quite a bit of shopping around before choosing this company and this particular mystery. My goal was to find a game that would be fun for a group of smart adults and teens, not too corny, well-written, and with a mystery that was genuinely challenging. This set was perfect. Printing and assembling the materials wasn't much work at all; the only drawback was that everything looked very plain on white copy paper inside plain white envelopes. If I did it again, I might consider upgrading my paper materials or purchasing the full kit. Even though I hosted, I was able to successfully keep the solution a secret from myself, so I enjoyed participating as much as anyone. We had a few hams in our group who really got into character, but even the more staid, non-theater-types enjoyed themselves. I was pleasantly surprised that EVERYONE dressed up as their character, even my husband, who doesn't normally like this kind of thing. The murderer ended up being my 13yo daughter, who played it up dramatically. Overall, I do recommend this and I'm sure I'll purchase from this company again. Unknown on Jan 8th 2021
Everyone enjoyed the mystery. We played with 5 couples. Some guests were into playing their character and some were into solving the mystery. We did solve it after reading all the material. Would definitely recommend. Easy to host. Irma on Nov 20th 2019
Great material! My daughter wanted to do a murder mystery. They had a great time and enjoyed it. They all thought they knew who the murder was but was surprised when only 2 guess it right. Would buy another pack from this company. Unknown on Oct 28th 2019
