A DINNER PARTY GAME FOR EIGHT.
You have received an invitation to S.P. Keasys place, a private club near the headquarters of notorious gangster Hal Cappone. Upon arriving, Hal is discovered murdered! Come in costume and assume the role of one of the suspects; MOLLY M. AWBSTERR (society dame from NY, the ultimate flapper in Chicago for the action, maintaining a most exclusive penthouse apartment), ERNIE ("BET A MILLION") G. AMBLER (Chicagos most colorful millionaire), "SILKY" M. ADAM (shady owner operator of the The Everlay Club, Chicagos most prominent private establishment), EDDIE ("SOCKS") R. GYLE (smooth fashionable and clever, avid golfer and gambler, owns the exlusive gaming house Green Tables where the affluent gamble), MALISSA F. ORRTHOT ("Scoop" made a name for herself as a crime reporter for the citys leading paper The Trumpet, her considerable beauty and lively charm helped further her career on both sides of the law), S. TREIGHTON HARROW (US District Attorney and chief opponent of the criminal element), ANNA MARIA CARLOTTA SASSINE (sultry voice, exuberant style and traditional blues renditions have earned here the nickname "Torchy", this smoldering beauty currently featured at the Green Tables), or BILLY ("THE KID") THROWER (star pitcher for the Stock Kings, currently holds the league strikeout record, off the field The Kid is fun-loving, hard-drinking, warm-hearted, lustful, brawling and hell-raising). Imagine your home is a 1920s speakeasy in Chicago as you and your guests enjoy hours of suspense and intrigue but mainly humor as you solve the crime over a dinner.
SO MUCH FUN, ITS ALMOST CRIMINAL!

Everyone came in costumes which we either made ourselves or rented from a costume shop. The costumes were not complicated and were very fun.
For atmosphere my patio was tranformed into a 1928 speakeasy with candles and jazz playing in the background. We set up a bar and my husband acted as bartender/waiter.
All of my guests including myself got very involved with their character and 2 of the participants guessed the murderer correctly!
This is an adult game and I do not recommend it for children.
For the time of your life, this is the game for you!
I was genuinely impressed with the way each act was written. If you'd never tried theater, improv, or role playing, you could literally just read the text verbatim. If you had more experience in being socially flamboyant, it was easy to tell the facts from the flavor and let people spin it for fun. The script let people at both ends of the spectrum play together, which was great.
If you have a group of actors or role players, I recommend letting them read everything but the solution before you sit down to the dinner table. Give them individual pens and let them check off important facts as they're doled out. There were some things revealed later in the game that my experienced players wished they'd known from the start.
If, on the other hand, your guests have never tried anything of the sort, I think this is well enough written you can follow the script to the letter and still have a grand time.
I can't wait to try one of the archaeological themed Murder Mystery Party games when Indiana Jones IV comes out.
The "durability" rating is a little misleading. Everything in the box was sturdy and well made, but I can't imagine playing it again. I already know the solution. It would be easy enough to put everything back in the box and give it to some friends ... but I'd rather they buy a new game and invite me along to play.
