    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.

    • 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).

    1. A lot of fun for a group

      Our family of 6 really enjoyed playing this game, trying to figure our who the murderer is. The puzzles/riddles took us a while to figure out and at one point we almost gave up one the one of them, but we eventually figured them all out and had a great sense of achievement. on Jun 19th 2020

    2. Had so much fun

      I was the host and at first it was confusing. But once all info was given out to the player. They really embraced it. I would do again and highly recommend. Price is good on Jun 12th 2020

    3. Lots Of Fun

      We had a lot of laughs! on Jun 4th 2020

    4. Very good story!

      Haven't played yet, but it looks like it’s going to be awesome! I’m playing sheriff host so I have read ahead. Characters are each very playable and the stories overlap, so the optional characters are well hidden amongst the ‘important’ ones.
      Only thing I would say - I’ve done the fingerprint reports separate , and also a DNA results for one of the characters to open when instructed. It adds a little more fun, waiting for a character to open it and everyone gasp in shock XD
      Overall, it looks like it will be A class to play, and will make my mate’s 30th birthday a little more cheery in quarantine!
