While at Boulder Beach, the WINs put on their 2nd annual murder mystery party. With a cast of 20, there were only slightly more than that in the audience. The show takes place in 1874 in Deadwood, where a big poker tournament is about to take place. Poker Alice and Anna Belle were dressed to the hilt.
Black Barbara, an outlaw who probably robbed the bank, and Banker Bonnie, who's the wife of the bank owner. Remember we saw Bonnie shopping for her (his?) outfit on the last blog entry.
Anna Belle and Holly Hickok were adorable.
But sooner or later, someone has to die. A cheer went up when Mitch Maverick bit the dust. Oh wait, that was me cheering....
Marshall Dalton is sorting through the clues to determine the perpetrator.
And he has help from Sheriff Sam, who questioned Harry High-Stakes, the owner of the saloon.
And of course he questioned Jesse Wales, an outlaw and old comrade of Harry's.
Harry and really hot Gambling Jack had some words about Jack's cheating.
Saloon girl Sally Starr knows a lot about what is going on.
In the end, it seemed like everyone had a motive to kill Mitch. The audience (and the participants, since they didn't know) then voted on the guilty party. Three people (including me) got it right, but mine was just a lucky guess. No, I wasn't allowed to vote for myself -- I was just in the audience.
