    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. The Grand Gatsby

      For my birthday we wanted to have a game night. The night before my birthday we stumbled across My Mystery Party games, and even though it was last minute we decided to order it. Although we didn't know how to host a mystery party and it was a surprise to our guests, everyone got soooo into character! We were laughing all night! We knew who the victim was, but set it up so even we didn't know who was the murder. It was a complete surprise, and no one could figure it out! We would definitely order another game, and we know better now how to put on the best murder mystery party! Thank you for a wonderful night, we still talk about it to this day, and message each other using our character names! on Nov 30th 2018

    2. IT WAS A HIT


    3. A lot of fun

      We opted for this game, along with the first expansión pack, to celebrate my 40th birthday party. There were 18 of us in all taking part, 13 adults and 5 children aged between 13 and 16. As we are based in Spain, our guests were Spanish speakers, so we took the trouble to translate all the clue cards in advance. This was well worth the extra effort though, as everyone had a fantastic time at the party - we rented a country house for the night, including dinner and accommodation for everyone. The entertaining game-play, together with the 1920s dress code, resulted in an original celebration and a highly memorable evening. There are several twists in the plot, which makes it hard to decide on the murderer - only 4 of us managed to give the correct solution at the end. All in all, a great experience!! on Sep 18th 2018

    4. Best Party ever!!

      Everyone had such a great time!! The party ran smoothly with never a dull moment I recommend doing two of the extra games but not more or people will get bored. Also let everyone read their ending so they don’t feel left out. Very creative game and interesting storyline. Can’t wait to do another one!! on Sep 15th 2018
