There are four Mail Order Mysteries to choose from: The pirate-themed Treasure Hunt, the fairy-tale themed Enchanted Slumber, the espionage-themed Spies, Lies and Serious Bad Guys, and the detective-themed Case of the Missing Bigfoot.
Maps, keys, curses and sharks. Hidden treasure and scheming pirates. It all starts with a letter from a woman half-way across the world who finds an old key and a note from a long-dead pirate who happens to be your Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grandfather. It’s up to you to find the family fortune, but can you keep it safe from double-crossing pirates? Who’s to know when a pirate’s telling the truth, yaarrr?
A Knight, a Troll, a Librarian and a Dragon need your help to wake a princess who has been asleep for 699 years. There’s no time to lose – as soon as she hits the year 700 – poof! That’s it! The Princess turns to dust. Can you solve the ciphers, crack the clues and put the pieces together in time? Can you do what no one else has been able to do in the last seven centuries? Have you got what it takes to be an unsuspecting Hero? In this twisting, turning take on an old fairy tale, nothing is as it seems.
The Enchanted Slumber was written by a Mom, illustrated by a Mom and designed by a Mom. The story has strong messages about love, friendship and working together to face seemingly insurmountable tasks.
Congratulations! You’ve been accepted to spy school. Your training begins as soon as… Wait! Something has happened! We need your help to find a missing agent. Solve the ciphers, enter the codes and stop the evil villain before it’s too late. If his evil plans succeed, fun will be gone forever. Seriously. No more fun. Forever! Mwa ha ha ha ha!
An old mansion. A secret organization. A dinner party about to begin. The lights go out, there’s an upset in the dining room, an upset in the upstairs hall. The lights come on, the safe is open and the contents are gone. Who did it? All seven guests are suspects. There’s the butler, too, of course. And what about that open door?
The detectives on the case need your help. They’ll send you all the info they’ve got: “crime scene” photos, fingerprint reports, interview transcripts, ciphers, clues and a suspect board to help you keep track of the case.
And by the way, this mansion is not far from where you live. A big hairy creature that may or may not be Bigfoot was recently spotted in the area. You haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary, have you?
