    Mystery Synopsis

    It’s the height of Prohibition in 1920s Chicago, and there’s a mob war brewing between the South Side Gangsters and the Northern Chicago Mob Outfit. The two ruthless crime leaders Hal Sapone and Beanie O’Dannon have finally reached an agreement on bootlegging practices in Chicago and have decided to pull together resources to undergo a collaborative effort with criminal endeavors.

    On the surface, this strategy seems similar to bailing out a sinking ship with tin cups, nevertheless.

     Recently, gangsters from the north and south have been spotted together at various speakeasies throughout Chicago, but the tension in the air is always thick enough to be cut with a knife. However, this newfound relationship between the opposing mob bosses has served, thus far, to inhibit gratuitous bloodshed as in the past. Part of the success of this truce is that both crime bosses have found new dames, thereby intertwining more mutual relationships between the two factions.  

    The two gangs have set an official date to meet at Hal Sapone’s Grand Gatsby Speakeasy to resolve all remaining differences.  Will these two underground organizations resolve their disputes or will a massive melee erupt, rekindling the fatal flames between them?  

    This is where your story begins.

    In addition to the fun 1920's instantly downloadable Murder Mystery, there are additional bonus games!

    1. Great fun!

      I hosted this for my birthday this year. We decorated the house and even made marquee letters the said "the grand gatsby", it was quite the centerpiece. Everyone had a ton of fun and got to know each other. I was worried about it being awkward between people who didn't know each other, but it never was. All the instructions were clear and I was never confused about what needed to happen next. We are already talking about planning another! on May 18th 2018

    3. Amazing

      Did this as a surprise birthday party for my mom! SHE ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!! Such a great time on Mar 23rd 2018

    4. Can't wait to do it again!

      We had the most fun with this party! It is well put together! My friends were all laughing and having fun! They really got into character! Everyone came dressed and ready to play! I didn't want to know what was going on so I had someone else put it together. (I now recommend purchasing the one that comes out together just because of time and purchasing paper and ink it's about the same) She said it was easy to put together tho! I was really nervous how the evening would flow but it was great! Another review recommended splitting up the couples so I did and it was PERFECT! The story lines are AMAZING! I LOVED EVERY BIT OF IT! I can't wait to do it again! on Mar 17th 2018
