Our Old West Murder Mystery Game Is a Hit!

MURDER MYSTERY GAME REVIEW

We received this email from a customer who purchased our Old West murder mystery game complete with cowboy outlaws, a nun and uh, let’s call them “dance hall girls” (bein’ that we’re in polite company).

“The murder mystery dinner game was a hit!! Here’s our cast that played in your Bordello of the Damned Old West murder mystery game kit.  We had so much fun! We sold out at 72 plates served and they are begging for us to do this again!  Our cast is already looking at a couple of your murder mystery games for the next time because they are having too much fun. I told them not to look anywhere else cause you were the best!” – Tracy Robinson, Guthrie, KY.

MURDER MYSTERY GAME SYNOPSIS: The year is 1880. Jimmy Hayward rules this town. It once thrived and prospered when folks thought gold was in them thar hills. Them thar hills contained nothing but dirt and so the town lost not only its fortune but its fame and its population. Now Deadwood is just an occasional stagecoach stopover for folks moving on to better places. And the Leland Hotel and Saloon is a haven for outlaws (like yourselves) and it houses Madam Iggy’s, the best little whorehouse in the South Dakota. Consider it just another night in the old west, only this time it will more deadly than usual.

Note: You can change the name of this mystery to Dead in Deadwood AND you can have it be a dance hall & saloon instead of a bordello. The girls then become can-can girls and nickel a dance girls.

Two more reviews for this murder mystery game:

Bordello Old West murder mystery game“I would be honored if you would share my testimony to Red Hatters!! I’d be more than happy to let them know what fun we had with your mystery! Our Chapter purchased and put on your Bordello of the Damned. Our silly pictures won a prize on your website. I did want you to know that at least 3 other Queen Mum’s heard about our fun at the Leland Saloon and I have sent them a link to your site. I hope they have as much fun as we did!! In love and laughter.” –Queen Mum Erna, Red Hatted Rascals, Canada

Bordello Old West mystery game“I just wanted to tell everybody about our production of “Bordello Of The Damned”. We are a small amateur dramatic society and decided to look into a murder mystery evening for the first time ever. I found Haley Productions on the web and after checking out the story lines, we decided to go for “Bordello”. I’m pleased to tell you that it was a resounding success! The cast loved it, the chorus girls had a great time (especially as we allowed them to do a dance routine to “Lady Marmalade”!) and the audience had nothing but praise for us. … A lot of people dressed up for the occasion and after several drinks were had they threw themselves into it. I can say that we will certainly be looking to do another one in the future and would recommend it to any amateur actors as a way of improving your ad lib skills. Big thanks to Susan for all her help. I’ll be in touch soon for ‘Bordello Of The Damned Part 2 – Willy’s Revenge’!”  –Adam Kuhl from the other side of the pond.

FYI, you’ll find the above testimonials here.

REVIEWS:  

“The kids has a ball with Operation Catch Me If You Can. I had 11 7-8 year old girls and things moved smoothly. We never had a dull moment; the girls never had time to “click” like they tend to do sometimes. No one ever felt left out and in the end when they watched their skits they wanted to do more.”  – Shelly Husek, Sterling Heights, MI

“We did the hunt “Catch Me If You Can” for a schools out/summers here party and my boys (ages 9 & 10) and their friends LOVED it! They had sooooo much FUN! They loved being a detective and just having some good ol’ fun! We made some changes to the hunt to fit our needs and I can’t thank you enough. Each time I try one of your hunts they have been so easy to prepare, have had great creative ideas and are sooo much FUN! Thanks again.” –  J. Cummings, Shelley, ID

(for teens and adults)

With Photo Challenges, Items to Find and Creative Team Projects

The days are getting longer – yay!  Warm weather is coming. Time to get out and play!

REVIEW: “This looks like it may become an annual tradition. You make your hunts very easy to follow. I ordered your When Nature Calls hunt last year for our annual family reunion and did it as a “filler activity” at our camp. I have to tell you that EVERYONE loved it so much (even the “nay-sayers”) that we are doing [another scavenger hunt] (Operation Recovery) as our main event at this year’s reunion. We are all very excited and can’t wait. Everyone that participated last year from ages 8 to 72, had just as much fun. It’s amazing how competitive everyone becomes during the hunt. The performance and song put on by everyone after the hunt was the funniest thing our family has ever done together. What a ball! Thanks!” Pete Rapps, Everglades City, FL

REVIEW: “Our nature scavenger hunt was A COMPLETE SUCCESS! I am the Activities Director for a 271 site Campground in South Central Pennsylvania.  I thought perhaps I would have about 5 teams….ended up with 25! (Luckily I was prepared for 30)! Anyway, people are still absolutely raving about what a blast they had and they can’t wait for next years’!  Your package was superb!  Kudos! Thanks Again!” –Heather Mull, Manheim, PA

We have lots more great reviews for our scavenger hunts here.

HOW IT WORKS: This is an outdoor nature scavenger hunt game suitable for a medium to large park or recreation area (it was originally designed for a state park). It can be adapted to a campground.

You’ll need about 2 hours minimum for this hunt (unless you remove some challenges). Your group will be divided into teams of 3 to 10 people. Each team will receive a collection bag (knapsack, duffle bag or even a plastic shopping bag will do) containing a digital camera (or smart phone), their challenge sheet – the hunt itself – and various supplies. They will then embark on the scavenger hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items and completing a creative project. All the challenges are worth valuable points and there are some bonus point challenges as well. At the conclusion of the hunt, the teams will prepare an optional final presentation while you “grade” their challenge sheets to find the winners based on point total (award certificates are included with this hunt). THE WINNING TEAM will have had the most fun as a team while collecting the most points.

REVIEW: “YOU WERE RIGHT!!! I had absolutely nothing to worry about! The party was a huge success. As one child said, ‘This is the best party ever.’ We had twelve boys altogether, 6 on each team. It was really a fun time. It kept those crazy, boys busy for 2 hours!!!!!!!!! A mothers dream! 🙂 🙂 My skeptical husband, who I did let go with one of the teams, LOVED it! He said the boys really had a great time. His words, “Honey, you did a great job, you really did.” THANKS A BUNCH!!! YOU ROCK! All the moms thought I was crazy for even having 12 boys……you proved you can have a large party and not go insane!! LOL Until next party…..” Mollie Brown

Spring is just about here and it’s time to get out and play no matter what age you are!  

REVIEW: “Absolutely Amazing!!!! There is no other way to describe our team scavenger hunt activity. It exceeded every expectation I could have had. The picture portion brought me to tears when doing the scoring, I couldn’t believe the things our teams came up with. I knew it would be fun, but I had no idea how much. This was truly a ‘team” building exercise, watching the men (who are only usually interested in a golf outing), roar with excitement when their teams photo or unusual item was chosen and displayed for all to see. We had a dinner that evening to present awards and the winners, this is a must in bringing things to an end. We had a projector and showed the highlights of the day on screen. The room was “electric”!!!!!!!! Thank you so much the all the tools to make this day a huge success. The only problem I have is what to do for next year, the bar has been set so high, I don’t think anything could top this.” Fondly, Desiree Clisura, Princeton, NJ
