The Western Murder Mystery
Party game for 8 players
It’s Saturday night in the old west,
which means plenty of gunfights,
heavy drinking and dangerous outlaws.
The town of Deadbeat is no different.
Unfortunately for Sheriff Pickit,
who was found shot to death and slumped
over his desk, it was a bad night.
His body was found by Deputy Sweeney
as he returned from a call at around 10PM.
A page from the Sheriff’s log book shows
a list of locals that came by to see him
during the day, and it’s Deputy Sweeney
who’s convinced one of them returned to
commit the murder.
Can you solve this rather twisted,
western comedy of errors?
Suspects, 4 male and 4 female:
Deputy Sweeney: A know it all kind of guy who’s rather inept at the job.
Lilly Willcox: Miss Lilly runs the “special” hotel in town.
Clayton Dotson: A mysterious gambler arrives in Deadbeat.
Ruby Christian: A small town school teacher with big hopes of catching a man.
Kwatoko Longbow: A fiery, dramatic Indian with a strong sense of justice.

Emmett Potts: A local sheep rancher with a big mustache.
Edna Roach: A tough female bounty hunter, who’s also a drinker and a fighter.

Great murder mystery! The dialogue was very witty and kept us all entertained. Creative story line and enjoyed the recaps at the end of each round, very helpful. Will purchase again!

Had an absolute blast with this party. The wine labels were such an amazing touch, and just one of the details that all the guests enjoyed. Full of humor and genuine challenge, I'll definitely be buying another one of these games! Really took away the anxiety of what to do as a hostess. Thanks so much!
