two sassy gals….?

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 endeavours.

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.

This is where your story begins.

This is an hilarious over-the-top role-playing dinner party game, hosted by the Murder Master.

Play as one of the most feared gangsters of the era, or a lusted-after movie star or flapper. Whoever you play, you can’t trust anyone, least of all, your friends.

Strut you stuff as you wheel and deal, trying to make sure that you're always on the 'right' side... and hopefully without a knife in your back.

This Gatsby-era game is for 10 and up to 55 people. Play one of these characters…

  • Zetta Zarbo, a movie star who finds herself in a compromising situation
  • Hal Sapone, one of the most powerfully dangerous gangsters around
  • Haddie Drinx, a long-time waitress, she dreams of becoming a night club singer
  • ‘Handsome Sam’ McWarthy, the ultimate ladies’ man who’s not always made the appropriate choices of women, which may land him into a sticky situation one day if he is not careful
  • … and so many more ‘colourful’ characters

Get a group of your fellow 1920s-mad friends together (you’ll need a group of 10 or more people), to dress up and play.
