The dusty old Dingleberry estate sits on a secret diamond mine, owned by The late Lord Dingleberry. He was cruelly cut off in his prime. He died when things were looking up…as it were!! Such a tragedy, such a loss, such a… mess all over the carpet!!

Tonight you are all gathered to celebrate this great man’s life. Present are his best friends and colleagues… diggers (more like it!) You join the creepy crooked family solicitor as they announce the contents of the late Lord’s will to the assembled family and friends. Try solving this most ghoulish of crimes! But beware… the curse, of Dingleberry Manor…!!!! For this place is full of surprises…!!
