    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.

    1. AWESOME

      We ordered the no spoiler kit and wow what an awesome time! As a host I played along and truly enjoyed myself. Everyone kept saying for weeks after when is the next one. We will host another one for sure. on Feb 17th 2021

    2. Lots of fun!

      Everyone had a great time. on Feb 14th 2021

    3. Love your products

      This is the 3 or 4 game I've purchased from you on Feb 5th 2021

    4. A Romping Good Time!

      We purchased "The Grand Gatsby" for our daughter's 17th birthday party. We only had 5 days to throw the whole thing together (which I would not recommend). It was a lot of hard work but it was one of the best parties we have ever thrown! We sent out the pre-party activity the morning of the party, which got everyone ready to play their roles. Everyone came dressed in costumes and ready to have fun. The variety and details about each of the characters gave everyone a chance to be involved and ham it up as much as they wanted. The instructions were very detailed which made them a bit tedious, but once I had read everything and got it all laid out and organized it really wasn't that bad, and the party came off without a hitch! I would highly recommend this murder mystery for your party. on Feb 1st 2021
