A Backful of Bullets, Murder Mystery Game

( for 8 to 10 people )

The year is 1882; the American West has yet to be won, and one place engaged in the constant daily struggle is the dusty town of Tombstone, Arizona.

A flourishing mining town, its residents fall into two opposing camps: those looking to get rich quick - prospectors, ranchers and merchants, and those looking to get rich even quicker – thieves, card sharps, and gunmen.

The long arm of the law has so far managed to keep these two conflicting sides far enough apart for the town to prosper, but, with the situation now spiralling dangerously out of control, the town’s future is beginning to look increasingly uncertain.

One thing never in doubt, though, is the notorious annual Tombstone Poker Tournament. Despite intense public speculation, the game’s ‘high-roller’ guest list remains a closely guarded secret from all but the participants, until the game is just about to start. However, an hour before this year’s players are due to appear, the town is stunned by the news that one of them, the outlaw Jesse James, has been ruthlessly gunned down in his room at the Crystal Palace Hotel.

You and your fellow tournament player guests are now caught up ia a winner takes all game of 'catch the killer', the stakes, for which, could not be higher!

Guests / Suspects :

WYATT EARP - The Sheriff of Tombstone. As two of Tombstone's longest residents, he and his wife, Cattle Kate, are much respected pillars of the local community.
CATTLE KATE - The owner of South Starr Ranch. As well as being sheriff Earp's wife, she's a well-known, self-made businesswoman, having risen from once humble roots.
COLE YOUNGER - A 'wanted' bank robber. He is the joint-leader of the outlawed James-Younger gang, and his brawn and Jessie's brains have proven a formidable combination.
BELLE STARR - The long time girlfriend of Jessie James. She's the West's most infamous woman outlaw - having robbed banks and trains from Arizona to Virginia.
DOC HOLLIDAY - The Mayor of Tombstone. His position as the town's only doctor, and his skill with a deck of cards, have brought him considerable wealth.
POKER ALICE - The owner of the Crystal Palace Hotel and Saloon Bar. She's a shrewd ex-saloon girl, who, having worked her way up from the bottom, now spends her time and money at the card table.
BILLY THE KID - Billy the Kid: The son of Jesse James and Belle Starr. He is his parents' creation - a ruthless killer who's phenomenal speed on the draw is now unrivalled.
CALAMITY JANE - The daughter of Wyatt Earp and Cattle Kate. She is the owner of the town's stables, the 'O.K. Coral', and her skill with a horse and rifle are now legendary.

Optional Guests :

JACK DANIELS - The heavy-drinking barman at the Crystal Palace Saloon. He hears most of what goes on in town, though his discretion can always be assured - well, until late in the evening, at least.
BLAISE WEST - The glamorous and sultry singer at the Crystal Palace Saloon. She has many admirers, but is either the instigator of, or subject for, most of the town's more salacious gossip.
