Members of the Murder Ink acting troupe entertained about 200 attendees at the Lodge Resort and Spa in Cloudcroft, New Mexico over the weekend of February 22-24, 2019 presenting "Game of Stones" Murder Mystery. Murder Mystery attendees are avid fans of this type of entertainment and come with their lap tops and cellphones, ready to discover who the murderer(s) are to win lovely prizes.
The Lodge is a fabulous venue for this type of entertainment and it was completely sold out for this event.
"Game of Stones" character story lines was written by Jan Wafful who also directed and had an acting role in this production. Member actors in Murder Ink mostly provided their own 1600's costumes by either creating them or ordering them from costume houses. They did a phenomenal job of this, looking quite realistic in their roles.
