A Speakeasy Murder

A Speakeasy Murder is for 15 to 32 guests (plus one host) and is set in a 1920s speakeasy.

the story so far

Welcome to Fat Stan's Speakeasy - and there's been a murder!

Poor Scabface Martins has been gunned down by a masked hoodlum in a long black cloak.

The only way in or out of the Speakeasy is through a secret door, and the doorkeeper swears that nobody has come through that door in either direction for over an hour.

So it must be someone in the Speakeasy that plugged poor Scabface!

how a speakeasy murder works

In A Speakeasy Murder everyone has a complete character with background, friends and objectives.

Each guest decides how he or she will approach the murder - and the murderer must try to avoid detection.

As well as trying to solve the murder, all the characters have other goals and objectives. In A Speakeasy Murder, for example, there are gangsters and moss all with their own agendas.

(Personally, I think interactive murder mystery games are the most satisfying - there's simply so much going on!)

The cast

The cast of A Speakeasy Murder includes:

  • Alfonso 'Linguini' Marino – a gangster
  • Ava Monroe – star of Hollywood's silent pictures
  • Bobby White – a saxophone player
  • Fat Stan Belluccio – the boss and speakeasy owner
  • Kit James – the Mayor's serious secretary
  • Lady Patricia Fortescue-Smythe – an English aristocrat
  • Lola – a singer
  • Mayor Trelawney – a politician
  • Officer Pilkington – a cop
  • Oswald Murphy – a famous Hollywood movie producer
  • Sammy Snake-Eyes – the head croupier
  • Sly Swanson – a debonair gambler
  • Tillie – a dancing girl
  • And many more!

(The list above is only a small sample of characters - there are many more in A Speakeasy Murder.)

The details

Instead of a formal dinner party, A Speakeasy Murder is better suited to a buffet meal or finger food.

Everyone needs to be able to talk quietly with each other - everyone (not just the gangsters!) needs to scheme and plot against each other,

A Speakeasy Murder needs a host, someone to organize the game.

They will read the entire game and will be available to answer questions.

It's a lot of fun being the host - you know what's going on and can watch your friends scheme and plot and be devious to one another.
