    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. It was a party people will be talking about for weeks!

      I threw this party as a NYE party. I’ve been wanting to do a MM party for years and it was a massive success! We had about 40+ people from all different circles playing (we bought 2 expansion packs!) and everyone was mingling and meeting new people to solve the mystery. I totally recommend splitting up all the couples, it made it so fun!
      All through the night people were raving about how much fun they had and couldn’t wait for the next party! Can’t wait to do another one myself!!

    2. Fun Night with Friends!

      So much fun! We had a few that weren't into this idea of dressing up when we first brought it up, but once everyone showed up in costume, house decorated and we started playing the part, everyone had a great time and many laughs! We're already planning which one we want to do next!! I recommend mixing up the couples and not have them be couples in the game; I think it made it a lot more. on Dec 3rd 2017

    3. My first and it went well!

      I had a very eclectic group of friends over for this so i was worried about everyone meshing and getting along, but it ended up going perfectly! everyone was perfectly campy and into their roles and we had an absolutely great time. I'll be hosting another in a few months for sure. on Nov 13th 2017

    4. My first but not last Muder Mystery party, AWESOME!!!!

      I hosted my first party of this type and had a ball doing so. The package was compete and easy to use. All the guests, suspects and extras about 27 of them played their roles well. I encouraged everyone and got all to do pre-party activities. The character costume suggestions were spot on. Excellent. on Nov 6th 2017
