    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. Everyone had a blast!

      Ordered this for my 25th birthday. We had 12 people and it was just so much fun!! Everyone dressed up and played their parts. So easy to use and they gave you everything you needed- from the game, to food ideas and drink ideas!! Would 100% recommend!! on Feb 7th 2022

    2. The last hurrah…

      I had this party in Feb 2020. It was SO much fun! I spent about a month getting ready, collecting props and decorating the house. Everyone who came still says they were so glad it was their final “hurrah” before the lockdowns. I actually kept the decorations up the whole year til I put up my Christmas stuff. Can’t wait to do another! on Aug 15th 2021

    3. Sneakin and Sipping at the Speakeasy!

      This theme was so much fun! It was my second murder mystery party and I know I will do a third. This game has more twists after the murderer is caught and it’s awesome! I highly recommend the mini game where each player has fake money. Players were able to gamble with and bribe other players and it really got people mingling. Everyone had a great time. on Jul 7th 2021

    4. Awesome!

      So many activities and so so much fun on Jun 19th 2021
