    Mystery Synopsis - This explains the flow of events at the party

    Given the current state of affairs in Gravestone, Arizona, the mayor feared for his life and hadn’t seen the sun in months.  With the last three sheriffs mysteriously shot in the back, Gravestone had become a lawless town run by a bunch of outlaws known as The Ranchers. Wylie Arp, the sheriff of Duck City, Kansas, left his career as a lawman and traveled west to Gravestone with his brothers and friends.  He planned to sink his life savings into a business and live the rest of his days free from the stress of law enforcement.  Little did he know what was waiting for him in Gravestone. Soon after Wylie and his group arrived in town, the mayor asked Bella Starry to invite everyone in town for a celebration.  The mayor had high hopes that Wylie and his brothers would consider taking over as the law enforcement in town and getting The Ranchers under control or better yet…running them out of town. Everyone in town gathered at the Gravestone Saloon - even some of the Ranchers and other outlaws.  A reward poster surfaced, and rumors of codes hidden around town leading to a hidden treasure in the Gravestone Cave flew around the room. In order to avoid conflict at the celebration, the townspeople enjoyed cocktails and appetizers and Bella got the celebration going with some fun party games. A delectable Wild West dinner was served, followed by more fun challenges enjoyed by the guests until someone was found to be murdered in cold blood!  The townsfolk rallied together to figure out whodunit, and a grueling investigation ensued.  Over coffee and dessert, the suspects came clean with their involvement with the crime and to everyone’s shock - the murderer confessed!    Overall, it was a night to be remembered by all.

    1. Mother's Day Western Mystery was a blast

      The whole family loved it. We had so much fun. The drinks were great. The games were a blast. We all had fun trying to solve the mystery. on May 15th 2021

    2. So much fun with family

      We played this game with 3 generations and everyone loved it! It's definitely more fun if you have props and western style dinner as the game suggests. We got through it per the timeline but could have extended play for a lot longer, since none of us are trained actors. Definitely recommend for wholesome fun and great memories on Mar 17th 2021

    3. A great experience!

      We enjoyed this for New Years! Took about three hours with most of the bonus games being played. The story line was fun and left a good enough room for fun improv. The murderer could have been concealed in the writing better since I caught a glimpse of it during the cutting out part. Also lining up all the character sheets to the same size to make cutting multiple pages together an option would have made this easier. BUT overall I’m rating this game perfect because it has a fun and entertaining storyline. on Jan 2nd 2021

    4. Excellent!!

      We bought this with an extension pack for our 14 yr old daughter's birthday party. We had a total of 14 teens (age 13-18) participating. Everyone had a super time. It was well organized, easy to implement and worth every penny. Loved it! on Jul 20th 2020
