ROARING TWENTIES MYSTERY GAME 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.

 If you wish to host this (or any other) game for profit, you will need a commercial license or provide us with your 501C number for a charity fundraiser - click here.

    Grand Gatspy

    Everyone loved the 20s theme. I bought expansions packs 1 & 2, so that everyone could have a part. I made the mistake of giving myself a role, which I regretted. It was overwhelming to run the game with so many characters and play a main role. I was so busy that I didn’t really even get to visit with anyone. If you have a large party, make sure to just be the host/hostess. Otherwise, it was a great party.

    The last hurrah…

    Posted by Jill H on Aug 15th 2021

    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!

    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.

    One of the most fun experiences I have every had! I had the privilege of hosting this fabulous event and was so surprised at how into the characters everyone got! I loved that the host can participate just as much as the guests, and even I didn't know who the murder was until the end of the night! Fan Favorite, and will definitely be hosting another one soon!

    No snitches!

    I hosted a luau party from this site, and my 18 year old daughter saw how much fun everyone had and decided to host this party for her friends before everyone leaves for college in a couple of months. When her guests started to arrive, we were amazed at how seriously everyone took their roles! My daughter was able to manage the timeline and the host responsibilities without any assistance even though it was her first mystery party. Make sure to read all the directions first! She did forget to manage round three correctly, but the guests didn't seem to mind. They are already planning their next mystery!
