Before this, some of the tenants had gotten letters to be here to get the money Sam W. Westing had left behind. A lot of people were there and were taking there seats as Grace Wexler was greeting, and yet criticizing, everyone.
After Edgar Jennings Plum (The Lawyer) ha finished reading the notes left behind from Mr. Sam Westing, the heirs started heading down to the game room where everything was already set up for THE WESTING GAME, but, what was the westing game? It was a game of 8 teams, two people on each team, trying to figure out who the murderer of Samuel W. Westing was.
After a big snowstorm, all the tenants, or heirs, were officially ¨Snowbound.¨ The heirs start their quest to find out who the murderer is. They all are checking their clues and meeting with others, attempting to find the culprit.
Later, when discussing sharing the clues, right when they get to Chris´s question, there was an explosion and Ms. Theodorakis bolts out of there with tomato sauce smothered all over her. She claims it was a bomb but others say it was probably just an accident in the kitchen. Thereafter, 2 more bombs had went off. But again, no one had known who the bomber was.
Today, was Angela´s wedding shower. When opening up her third present, it explodes right in her face. She later is taken to the hospital. But the ¨bomb,¨ really isn´t an actual bomb, but instead made from fireworks. As it turns out though, the bomber, as nobody suspects is Angela herself...
Time has passed and The Westing Game is coming to an end when turtle starts suming everything up, stating that Westing was alive when the will was read, only, he was disguised as one of his own heirs, being the doorman Sandy McSouthers. Turtle then points out that the will never stated Westing was murdered but that it had just that his “life was taken from me — by one of you.” Sam Westing “took” his own life as Sandy McSouthers,
