    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. Twists

      There was a great twist. My recommendation is to allow plenty of time for setup and preparation! on Nov 12th 2019

    2. This was AMAZING!!

      We did this for my sister's 30th birthday and were not disappointed. This was my first time hosting or even attending a murder mystery party and I felt the instructions were very clear. I played the game as a non-essential character and totally was involved in the game just like everyone else. This was such a blast, everyone had a great time and the night was full of laughs! Already planning my next party! on Oct 7th 2019

    3. It was the bee’s knees!

      I hosted for my 30th birthday and we all had such a good time.
      I sent out the pre activity and it was a fun start to get people excited. Everyone got all dolled up and stayed in character. As the host, I didn’t want to know anything so it was fun seeing all the surprises and twists as they unfolded.
      Definitely give the required characters to the more outgoing people in your group.
      At the end everyone said they were ready to do another one!

    4. We LOVE My Mystery Party!!!

      My young adult daughters hosted their first murder mystery party and played The Raven Masquerade Murder in January. Everyone had so much! Like others shared in their reviews, people asked my daughters when they were hosting their next party, so they hosted Murder at the Grand Gatsby Speakeasy a month later. We went all out with the food and decor and were complimented on how beautiful our living room looked. Everyone had as much fun as they did playing the first party. My daughters then hosted The East Side Story and Panic at the Disco, and we are already planning our next one for October. My daughters didn't start incorporating the bonus games until their third party (which their guests enjoyed immensely), so I encourage you to play them! on Aug 16th 2019
