Description Edit | History

From the Front of the Box:

A Dinner Party Game for Eight
So Much Fun, It's Almost Criminal!

From the Back of the Box:

You have received an invitation to S. P. Keasy's place, a private club near the headquarters of notorious gangster "Hal" Coppone. Assume the role of one of these eight worldly characters. Imagine your home is a 1920s speakeasy in old Chicago, as you and your dinner guests enjoy hours of suspense and intrigue. All you need is a sense of humor and a light-hearted approach towards deceit, larceny, sex and murder. How To Host A Murder is so much fun, it's almost criminal!

MOLLY M. AWBSTERR - A society dame from New York, Molly came to Chicago for the action. Molly is a flapper from the top of the feather in her hat to the tip of her satin shoes and maintains an apartment on the top floor of Chicago's most exclusive apartment hotel.

ERNIE ("BET A MILLION") G. AMBLER - Early in the decade, Ernie parlayed a small stake into a stock exchange fortune. Now Chicago’s most colorful millionaire gambler, he still actively plays the stock market, but his favorite game is poker. Ernie is flamboyant, outspoken, and always ostentatiously dressed.

"SILKY" M. ADAM - Silky is a shady lady who owns and operates The Everlay Club, Chicago’s most prominent private establishment. The wealthiest and most influential citizens of Chicago are members, and despite their busy schedules, they often stop in for an hour or two to pass the time in the elegant atmosphere.

EDDIE ("SOCKS") R. GYLE - Smooth, fashionable and clever, Eddie is an avid golfer and spends most afternoons at the Lake View Country Club dressed elegantly in plus fours and argyle socks. In the evenings he can be found at his exclusive gaming house in downtown Chicago, known simply as Green Tables, where the affluent and trendy citizens of Chicago come to gamble.

MALISSA F. ORRTHOT ("SCOOP") - As a young reporter for the city’s leading paper, The Chicago Trumpet, Scoop quickly made a name for herself on the crime beat and later covering the political scene. Her considerable beauty and lively charm have undoubtedly helped further her career, and she enjoys a broad circle of influential and powerful friends on both sides of the law

S. TREIGHTON HARROW - U.S. District Attorney and chief opponent of the criminal element in Chicago, Harrow is single-handedly responsible for bringing to justice several of crime’s most despicable practitioners. Amidst the corruption and complacency that characterize Chicago law enforcement, Harrow stands out as a shining example.

ANNA MARIA CARLOTTA SASSINE ("TORCHY") - Currently the featured singer at Green Tables, Torchy has also appeared in many exclusive night clubs in Chicago. Her exuberant style and traditional renditions of "torch songs" have earned this blues singer the nickname "Torchy". Smoldering beauty and a sultry voice contribute to Torchy’s appeal.

BILLY ("THE KID") THROWER - Star pitcher for the Chicago Stock Kings major league baseball team, Billy was born to play baseball. He won 22 games for the team last season, and currently holds the league strikeout record. Off the field, Billy is as fun-loving, hard-drinking, warm-hearted, lustful, brawling and hell-raising as a baseball player can be.

CONTENTS INCLUDE:

  • a cassette tape revealing details of the murder
  • a host guide with instructions
  • a sheet of secret clues
  • 8 guest invitations and envelopes
  • 8 nametags
  • 8 player manuals containing secret information
  • a diagram of the crime scene
  • optional dinner and costume suggestions for the truly adventurous
