    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 murder mystery, there are additional bonus games!

    1. Our first murder mystery party was a success!

      We recently moved into a new house and were ready to throw our first party as an excuse to invite a bunch of people. After some consideration we opted for a murder mystery party and chose this site after evaluating probably a dozen others. In the end everything worked out swimmingly and we were really happy with the purchase. We chose the version where we printed everything ourselves.

    2. 1920's Great Gatsby

      This was our first murder mystery party that we hosted and was a part of. Everyone had a blast, the recipes were delicious, the characters were great. I was surprises how well everyone got into their characters, even the shy invitees of the group! Highly recommended, will be ordering more games from you! on Oct 31st 2016

    3. Great Singles Group Activity

      Trying to find murder mystery kits for 10+ is not only super expensive but generally complicated. This company is not only very affordable but everyone gets to stay in the game through the end - host and victim alike. We had 12 players (plus I arranged for one person in the kitchen) from our singles group, but would have been just as effective for couples. Everyone is all ready asking when we are going to do it again. I would absolutely recommend this website!

      P.S. - if you are going to do the between round games (which I recommend) the tommy gun challenge was hysterical. Good luck!

    4. always get the boxed set! This was great

      i've been a murder mystery party host forever and once I found this company, I've never looked back. The boxed kits are the way to go - so nice looking and easy as the host to have it all ready.
      Materials are much better than kits on Amazon and there are way more players and a more interesting story line.
      The characters are great, the story was intriguing and kept my guests guessing. They're still talking about it a month later.
