The Terrifying Case of Strange Island, a mystery from Dilan Blue is in response to your requests for an ALL-BOY mystery. This intriguing mystery party kit takes your teenage group of boys to a desert island where unexplained nighttime sights and sounds make a group of Young Adventurers fear that a gruesome beast lives on the island. Are they really in trouble or is someone orchestrating a sophisticated hoax on them?


As the sun was setting yesterday, a group of Young Adventurers, along with their two leaders, were stranded on a desert island. The group’s boat engine had failed while passing Strange Island--a rocky, forested place. The boys paddled the boat to the shore. Commander Dink Plotkins tried, but couldn’t fix the engine and the Adventurers set up camp for the night.

As darkness fell, strange noises were heard over the island - moans, shrieks, cries, and a booming sound. After climbing a nearby hill, two brave Adventurers saw bright, swirling lights over the other side of the island, where the booming noise was coming from.

One group went with Commander Plotkins to investigate the other side of the island, while Assistant Commander Vinglesworth stayed at the campsite with the others. Suddenly, a large, shrieking shape appeared in the trees over the campsite, causing panic in the camp.

On the other side of the island, Commander Plotkins and his Adventurers found a cave that pulsed beams of colored light and emitted loud booms. Tracks and claw marks led from the mouth of the cave to the beach, disappearing at the water. Two brave Adventurers volunteered to explore the cave.

Shortly after entering, they emerged, one so scared he could not speak. The other Adventurer had found a glowing claw in the cave. He was holding it in one hand and his friend with the other.

Commander Plotkins and his Adventurers returned to the campsite to find the others terrified and huddled in their tents. The Adventurer who found the claw offered to stand guard as the shrieking figure above circled throughout the night.

In the morning, the campers found the guard asleep, and the flying creature gone--along with their boat engine. Luckily, one of the boys had successfully activated the boat’s emergency transponder, alerting rescuers. Now, the Chief Investigator has arrived and is asking everyone’s help to figure out what happened.

One of these suspects (standard names) knows what happened:
(you can change these standard names when you personalize the mystery)

Zeb Bytes: He's a genius when it comes to technology and can figure out how to do just about anything.
