This murder mystery game was formatted to play on Zoom or other video chat - you send each player a PDF file before the game and meet up virtually to play! See product details below for further information. 

    Note: you will be given an optional 4 required player list upon purchase - you can opt to view it if you have 4-5 players total.

    An oil tycoon named Trais Fontenot is hosting an exclusive Mardi Gras event for the who's who of New Orleans. The shindig's location will be the famous One-Eyed Blacksmith Bar – an 18th-century cottage on Bourbon Street. The hotspot is one of the oldest surviving structures and served as a blacksmith's home during the Spanish Colonial period. The bar is plagued with a rich history peppered with scandals, murder, and mayhem.
    The year has been full of discord and strife among the citizens of the Big Easy, and Trais believes that hosting a Fat Tuesday party will help to mend wounds, rebuild bridges, and kindle old friendships. 
    You have received an invitation, and even though many of your foes will be there, you'll put on your best Mardi Gras attire and be at the bash with bells on. 
    This is where your story begins.
