Randles began his game development career Wizards of the Coast, where he worked on board games and card games including RoboRally, The Great Dalmuti and Xena & Hercules. He worked as a brand manager at Wizards. Randles left Wizards to found his own game design firm, Randles Games, where he developed a number of games. He designed Pirate's Cove with Daniel Stahl. In 2000 Randles sold his first game, Pirate's Cove, to Amigo, the first company he and Stahl showed it to, and he became a respected game designer in the European market within two years. His games Pirate's Cove and Key Largo (with Bruno Faidutti and Mike Selinker) were published first in Europe and then in the United States.
