    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. Great Game with a perfect Ending

      I ordered the following products:
      • 1920s Murder Mystery Party
      • Grand Gatsby Expansion Pack #1
      All our guest had so much fun and we even had some last minute additions and I was able to include them in the game with any issues. They never knew they were not in the original game plan. I do not want to give away the ending but I will say this - It was one of the best ending I have ever seen. Everyone laughed and enjoyed the entire night. We used this as our theater troop party and getting a bunch of theater nerds in the same room playing this game - we immersed ourselves in the characters - costumes, accents, time period props, and all. We had so much fun!

    2. Fantastic first time hosting a murder mystery!!

      This "Grand Gatsby" theme is a perfect theme to kick off hosting these types of parties.
      What a fun way to celebrate a birthday! Costumes and characters were great and the mystery was exciting. By the end of the night everyone agreed this should be an annual event with changing themes every year. We will be back for more murder mysteries in the future for sure!

    3. Best party I’ve ever had!

      We had a blast with this murder mystery! The costumes were great and everyone really got into their characters, which was not expected. I did a buffet style dinner broke into three rounds but everyone was enjoying the game and the drinks so much that they barely ate! Everyone is asking when the next one will be. I guess it’s time to start planning! on Jul 2nd 2018

    4. Great fun!

      I hosted this for my birthday this year. We decorated the house and even made marquee letters the said "the grand gatsby", it was quite the centerpiece. Everyone had a ton of fun and got to know each other. I was worried about it being awkward between people who didn't know each other, but it never was. All the instructions were clear and I was never confused about what needed to happen next. We are already talking about planning another! on May 18th 2018
