    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!

    2. Great time had by all!!!

      We had a group aged from 7-69, and fun was had by all! Not a moment of boredom nor people wanting to quit. We laughed, we cried and the dead person haunted us all! Will be buying another game soon. on Aug 23rd 2016

      Great game, so much fun. on Jul 24th 2016

    4. WOW!!

      Since I have never attended or hosted a mystery party I took my time and studied all the different options for games. I decided on the Roaring 20s party and I purchased it well in advance of my party. I am amazed at the work that has gone into the game!! Every detail has been thought of, down to six suggested fonts to use when writing to players!! There are suggestions for decorating which I would never have thought of! Costume ideas, recipes, even a video teaching the Charleston!

      As I read through the instructions I wrote down questions and figured I would email the company. No need!! By the time I finished reading the instructions every question was answered. Before I ordered the game I emailed the company two different times with questions and received answers in a matter of a few hours! Good customer service!

      I am very excited and wish I had planned to have this party sooner. If this game goes over as well as I think it will I know I will be back to try more!! I know our friends are going to love this! I am having as much fun planning this as everyone will have playing it!
