Mystery Synopsis - This explains the game flow at the party.

The presiding mayor of Gravestone, Arizona, must live in constant fear, for an unidentified killer has put bullet holes in the previous three sheriffs' backs. As a result, Gravestone is a lawless town run by a ruthless gang known as The Ranchers. 

The famous Wylie Arp retired early as the sheriff of Duck City, Kansas. Wylie is one of the most feared lawmen in the United States - a legend in his own right. He left his life as a law enforcer and traveled west toward Gravestone with his brothers and friends with plans to sink his life savings into a business in what he believed to be a quiet and safe town. He intended to live the rest of his days stress-free as a civilian, but little did he know what awaited him in Gravestone. 

The mayor caught wind of Wylie's arrival and immediately requested that Bella Starry invite the town for a celebration. The mayor hopes that Wylie and his brothers will consider taking over Gravestone's law enforcement. Moreover, with Wylie's untarnished reputation, the mayor hopes it will be easy for him to get The Ranchers under control - or, better yet - run them out of town.  

Wylie has a few days to settle in and get a feel for the town before everyone gathers for an exciting night at the Gravestone Saloon. But, unfortunately, it will be impossible to prevent The Ranchers or other outlaws from attending the event, as the sheriff's station is collecting dust.

Not everything is doom and gloom, however. An elder in town has divulged that there are secret codes hidden around the city that will lead to buried treasure in the Gravestone Cave on the outskirts of town. Many folks are already hunting for these codes, but they have yet to be discovered. The hunt has kept the outlaws busy, which has been good for the town.

Nevertheless, Bella Starry has an agenda to keep everyone happy during the gathering with festive beverages, delicious food, and a few Wild West party games. So hopefully, everyone will keep their guns holstered and be on their best behavior. But the question is - will Wylie help Gravestone or slip away in the night to move on to the next town? 

You plan to attend the celebration at the Gravestone Saloon. This is where your story begins.

    Used this Murder Mystery as a celebration of the ministry work completed in the last year at our church. Sometimes you get all caught up in the work of the church that you forget to have fun! This was the perfect celebration for teens to older adults and seniors. We had a blast! The food suggestions, props, outfits and awards ceremony were such a hit. No one had experience doing a murder mystery before and weren't sure what they were doing in Round 1, but that only added to the mystery. By Round 2 everyone was in full character and many laughs throughout the night. The extra challenges balanced out trying to figure out the mystery and the awards at the end of the night cinched the evening. I'd love to send you pictures if I knew where to upload them on your site! Highly recommend!!!
