What happens when a thief, a bomber, a murder (?) and a wide range of people move into the same building? To make it more complex, they are all heirs to a fortune. Before you answer, let me give you a little back story.
One day, a beautiful lakeside apartment building, called “Sunset Towers” was completed and ads about the building were sent to a seemingly random group of people. All of the people, to whom the ads were sent, moved into the tower. They lived for a while in perfect happiness. They enjoyed each other’s company, and got along splendidly. A while later, that all changed. Everybody noticed smoke coming from the house across the lake. The house was always referred to as “the Westing house” because many stories and legends had been told about the house’s owner, Sam Westing. Mr. Westing was extremely rich, and it was said that he had moved away to an island, and never been heard from again. A few days after the smoke, Sam Westing was found dead, and all of the people living in Sunset Towers were mentioned in his will. They each had a chance to win his fortune if they could solve one simple question: Who killed Sam Westing?
Are you daring enough to solve my question, as well as the question in the will? To try, simply read The Westing Game!
We would LOVE to hear if you solved the The Westing Game (I failed btw). Email us at email@example.com to tell us how you did.
