    Miles Randolph was a ruthless cheapskate who loathed everyone in the town of Pinewood Landing. A miserly outsider, Mr. Randolph only left his mansion to run his toy factory, Randolph Toys, Incorporated, which was the largest producer of toys in the world. Miles spent his life amassing his fortune and churning out hate, grief, and gloom to all who crossed his path.

    Nobody blinked an eye when the staff of his estate found Miles Randolph’s body this morning. The crime scene was made to appear as if he died from natural causes, but the clever homicide detectives of Pinewood Landing caught on to the ruse. The question is not if he were murdered, but rather, who could have pulled off such a crime? Is the killer an employee of the toy factory? A family member? The butler? Or might it be one of the many colleagues he has wronged in the past?

    The Pinewood Landing detectives have asked for your help to solve the case. Further instructions will be sent to you for the exact time and place that you will meet with the team who is assigned to solve this case. You should be aware - everyone assigned to delve into this case was associated with Miles Randolph, as he had numerous ties to many networks around the world. It would be dangerous for you not to attend, as the others might consider your absence a confession.  This is where your story begins.

    You will receive:  

    • Host instruction file - including bonus games to play virtually, player instructions, and a timeline sheet (abbreviated instructions) for your event.
    • 10 character packets (PDF files) to send to your players in advance of the party. They include instructions, a character bio, suspect list, and three rounds of game play (optional pre-game, round one materials, round two materials). 
    • Solution keys for the game and game challenge - host can play along without spoiling the game.
    • Editable text field player contact sheet for pre-game.
    • Free invitation (optional to use).
    • Free pre-game website (optional, but suggested).

    1. So easy to run!

      I planned this literally the day before and added players on the day. It was so easy to run and add players as we go. It wasn't to easy to solve so it was actually challenging considering it was only moderate rating (made it very interesting). I just can't get over how easy it was to run and also play at the same time! Overall a very enjoyable night! Absolutely loved it and rate 10/10. on Sep 4th 2021

    2. Great family activity!

      We just enjoyed a virtual family birthday celebration with The Murder of Myles Randolph as our centrepiece. The feedback from the 8 participant was 10 out of 10. Everyone got caught up in the excitement, even those who had initially indicated they were hesitant. As the organizer I can't say enough about how easy this was to pull together (and on short notice!). Everything was packaged together so that it was a simple roll out. I got the credit for doing all the work but truly it was one of the easiest parties I've ever hosted! on Mar 20th 2021

    3. Creatively fun

      Great activity for a family birthday of six people. on Jan 31st 2021

    4. Would order another mystery

      Good characters, challenging and lead to a fun time virtually. on Dec 23rd 2020
