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 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 player expansion packs are available, and you can expand even further by adding duplicate players of the Kingsley Mansion staff members. You can host this game for up to 50 players - see breakdown below.
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.
Spoil yourself, and choose the party ready option above, and our dedicated staff will fold and slip your clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards. Without the party ready option selected, you will have some assembly required with your kit and there will be spoilers upon opening the kit and viewing the rounds 2 and 3 clue cards.

Murder Mystery Synopsis
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. 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.
*The staff members are duplicate characters that are not suspects in the game. However, they have pre-game tasks, character clue cards, name tags, mystery investigation sheets, and solution cards with a challenge on them in lieu of a solution (since they were not suspects). These roles are a great way to expand your guest list and still give everyone a role in the game.

Can't say enough great things about the whole Murder Mystery experience! We played The Last Will and Testament of Roland Kingsley with our extended family and had a blast. There were 30 of us (I would recommend maybe a smaller group), and about 1/2 of the group didn't know each other (it was the first time we were meeting our daughter-in-law's extended family) It was a great way to mingle and have fun with the whole group at once.
Everything about the game was spot on. I was impressed with the planning that went into the game. The pre-game round, the detailed character descriptions, the suggested costumes, the menu suggestions and recipes....everything was just perfect.
Almost everyone at the party was pumped to purchase their own game to host another party in the future! Unknown on Nov 30th 2019
