1920's murder mystery synopsis:

 It is 1927, and the mob scene is prospering in major cities across the United States with rum running, loan sharking, protection rackets, speakeasies, and gaming halls.  In order for the underground to reach supremacy as a unified crime faction, crime bosses from Atlantic City, New York City and Chicago have agreed to establish The Commission during a gathering known as the Atlantic City Conference.  The Commission is set to be a governing body that will oversee all mob organizations in the country.  Various opinions have been made known on how The Commission should be run, and who will be the boss of all bosses. Some high ranking officials are adamantly against the idea, which has led to preemptive hostility. Nonetheless, the crime bosses have agreed to conduct themselves with integrity at the conference. An unbreakable truce has been put into effect.

Nuggy Jones from Atlantic City has agreed to host the conference at his residence and place of business, the Karlton Ritz Hotel on the Boardwalk.  Mobsters from the biggest families will be arriving in Atlantic City very soon. This is where your story begins.

    This party was so well organized and meticulous to the last detail. I loved the guest site - it really added a bunch of excitement before the party. I'm so happy with the game and this company, who responded within the hour when I emailed them. Next time, I will get the party ready pack, however, as I've heard from friends it's the way to go if you have the budget for it. Bravo, guys, can't wait to host another one
