Reviews for A Gangster Murder at the 1920s Speakeasy! Murder Mystery Party

I played one of the Flappers in the original flapper murder at a friends party.  This weekend I got to revisit my character for a brilliant prequel! 1920’s murder mysteries are so much fun.  We had a great night inventing cocktail names for illicit hooch, raiding second hand stores for feathers and beads and some modern swing.  If you create a follow up to Flappers we will be first in line!
