    Hal Sapone, a notorious crime boss from Chicago, has directed his mobsters to meet without delay to find out who whacked the mole in his faction, Jimmy The Legs. Jimmy was squealing to the feds about the inner-workings of Hal’s underground organization, but it’s a sign of disrespect and rebellion to clip someone without an order from the top. Hal wants the disloyal thug found at once.

    Furthermore, the crime boss has received puzzling notes from the extortion racket known as The Iron Hand. Hal wants everyone to work together to decipher the messages. You’re in the Chicago Mob Faction. Hal Sapone has summoned you to attend this meeting. This is where your story begins.

    3. An Honest Review

      This game was fantastic! Start-up was a breeze and the directions were pretty easy to follow. My group and I were first time players, with me as a first time host. I was a bit lost in the beginning and there were somethings that I missed but I was able to back track to those missed items without the group knowing! The mystery itself was challenging, especially the puzzles.

      Tips: If you are the host, make sure you read and understand the directions before the start of the game for a smooth and seamless experience. For players, make sure you use you familiarize yourself with your character as well as the other characters playing in the game. It will help you tremendously!

      Thanks My Mystery Party for creating a fun and challenging experience!

    4. Fun Time Together

      The '20's mob game was lots of fun to get into. We played it with family that is spread out across the country and then again with the students in my theatre arts class. There is a TON of information for the host but I failed to deliver some of the instructions the first time we played which led to some of the characters did not giving every detail of their information. We did much better in the 2nd time through. The family and my class had fun getting together and we had many participants who were in costume, using props and listening to 20's jazz music in the background. This was fun and I would recommend. on May 6th 2020
