Steve's Murder in the Wild West party

An ace-high party based on our Murder in the Wild West mystery. The decorations and costumes are all of the first water. Steve says:

Took so many pictures it's hard to select just a few to show. We aren’t smiling on most pictures, but that was on purpose. It was very hard to look serious as we were all laughing and laughing.

I made my own invites and dressed them using my Cricut machine:

Two girls learnt the CanCan; the backdrop is all-fired:

Verdict:

"Had a great time playing the game. Will definitely be back for another. I loved the way the “extra players” could also be murderers. Other games the extras are just that - and not very fun for them."
