    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. We do a murder mystery party every year

      This is the 3rd mystery party I have purchased from mymysteryparty.com. Every year the party is an absolute hit! We like to go all with decorations and really embrace the theme for our guests. It is easily the most talked about party of the year.

      The party package itself is easy to use and well organized. You just print off all the instructions, assign the charchters in advance and hand out the note cards throughout the evening. Our guests have a wonderful time dressing up and staying in charchter throughout the night.

      As requested by popular demand we will continue to purchase packages each year impressing our family and friends.

    2. Roaring good time

      Just finished up hosting a murder mystery for our New Years Eve party. I had so much fun decorating and planning costumes. Overall everyone who participated had a good time. I have some family members who have much louder personalities than others, so it was difficult to mingle with everyone and make sure everyone was involved. This is something I’ll have to consider next time when making character assignments. As a first time host I learned a lot, but the kit did help steer me through the night. I will definitely plan another party next year. on Jan 1st 2019

    3. 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
