Step into the Roaring Twenties with the Tracy Gang Murder Mystery Party Theme

For those who want to experience the thrilling world of gangsters and speakeasies, the Tracy Gang murder mystery party theme is a perfect fit. Set in the lively and dangerous world of the 1920s, this theme is full of intrigue, action, and suspense.


We had a fabulous night with the Murder Mystery, it was really great to do something so different! Here is some feedback for you. Downloads are easy to access, it is a lot of printing to complete. Doing it again, I probably would order the box so it was all set up for us. The mini games were great, like the ice breakers and between round activities, this was really helpful to get groups mixing together! All up, it is a great night and really enjoyable for everybody! Thank you very much!

3 Steps to Murder Mystery fun!

1) Order a murder mystery game for your group size.

2) Host the party yourself or hire a professional murder mystery host.

3) Have a murderous good time.

The Story

Setting: The Tracy Speakeasy a 1920s club.

Short Story: "Aiden Abet" the leader of the Tracy Gang developed a scam that netted him $1m. However, once his victims caught on he became a hunted man. The $1m was hidden in the Tracy Speakeasy and when it strangely reappears it leads to murder! Unravel the mystery of the dead man walking, the letters from William Shakespeare and the literary weekend.

Long Story: It is the 1920s and you are a member of the notorious Tracy Gang. It has been one year since your last gang meeting and you are very keen to brag about your swindles and heists. The thing with gangsters is they love to trick each other as much as an unwitting victim! Soon there are some pretty angry people with a grudge to bare! “Travis Dee” a new member of the Tracy Gang is found dead! Shot on the first floor balcony. Many gang members had a score to settle but only one is the true murderer! Whodunit? Your guests will be given the job of working that out. Decipher the suicide note, discover the Shakespearian letter swindle and unravel the mystery of who killed Travis Dee! Would you make a good gangster?

Adult Themes: Gambling, swindling, cards are a feature of the story.

Costumes: Guests come dressed as a gangster, cabaret dancer, godfather, flapper, pimp, F.B.I, scarface, hit man or any other 1920s style character.

How Do Costumes and Characters Work? To make the game as easy as possible to organise your guests do not need to dress as any particular character. The costume they wear does not affect the character they play in the murder mystery. You allocate the murder mystery characters on the night of the party. This means that if guests are sick and can't make it or extra friends want to come then there is no impact on running the game.

Normal Use: Fundraiser, kids 15+, teenage or adult party.

Group Size: 4 to 8, 2 to 15, 2 to 60, 2 to 120 or 120 to 300.

Note: The Mega Edition version for 120 to 300 people has a slightly different story line.

Murder Mystery Games

What was the 1920s like in Australia?

The 1920s are remembered as the ‘Jazz era’ in Australia. Even ordinary families had access to radios and automobiles in the decade. Cinemas were the popular choice for entertainment; women had freedom of speech. Younger women were called ‘Flappers’ meaning ‘Modern Women’ embracing new fashion, short hair, dancing and smoking!

Why would a 1920s murder mystery party in Australia be awesome?

Australia has some of the most exquisite venues for having a Gatsby-style 1920s Murder Mystery Party. You can get back to the rip-roaring, jazz era - the 1920s by donning the flappers, striped clothes, and short hair. With greater flexibility of venue selection and availability of hosts, you can spice up your parties in just a snap of your finger.

What costumes should people wear to a 1920s party?

The roaring 20s were the times of new fashion and had a specific dress code for men and women. The women were usually dressed in frills & glitz, flappers, long strings of pearls, knee-length hems, headwear & footwear, and wearing their hair short. Men used to don suspenders, vests, and formal suits in plaid/pin-striped or striking solid colours with a classic haircut.

Twenties design is regularly associated with its fabulousness and allure, however underlying this was an advance toward simplicity in dresses. For ladies, this implied shorter skirts and basic shapes, while men delighted in casual easy going suits.


The housewife wore straightforward cotton dresses, thick dark cotton stockings, and low-heeled oxfords. Dresses were in colourful plaids, checks, stripe or solid colours with beautiful embroidery and trim such as laces and often had white collars.

Travelling Clothes

Travelling during the 20s was a filthy issue as vehicles were dusty and trains were hot thus, they wore basic suits, tough jacket, comfortable cap, leather gloves, leather tote or baggage and a low shoe.


After housework its always time for some errands for this they often wear skirts, blouses and sweaters paired with a sturdy pair of mid-heel oxfords, Mary Janes or T-strap shoes. A tailored dress made of silk or wool was also an option. They also wore hats. A hat was an accessory that any women in the 20s can’t leave home without.

Church Clothes

Dresses were the common outfits for church. A modest dress with long sleeves and below the knee hemline was common. If a person is wearing a sleeveless dress, a light shall, wrap or jacket was used as a coverup. Simple non bold prints were the go-to print. Women were required to wear a matching hat, gloves and purse.

What 1920s food should I serve?

Food is where the fun begins! It’s a matter of personal preference. You have a wide range of food options to be served in a 1920s themed murder mystery party. You can serve devilled eggs, mixed nuts, olive platters, shrimp cocktails, cheese platters, or oyster Rockefeller.

How should I decorate my venue to look like the 1920s?

The best way to decorate your venue to look like the 1920s is to decorate it with pearls, feathers, champagne bottles, and sparkles. You can get décor ideas from the internet or click on the above game images.

Why are the 1920s such a popular choice for Murder Mystery parties?

Trains, Planes and Automobiles

The 1920s is when trains, planes and automobiles began to come of age. While the 1800s saw a lot of their mysteries set on trains, the rise of the personal automobile led to a lot of the news items in the 1920s. Gangsters started doing drive-bys. Airplanes began to be in use for high powered executives. The train continued to be a popular choice of transportation. Rather than just set your Murder Mystery Darwin Northern Territory party in the 20s, get specific. You can stage your event as if it were in a 20s bank or airport. Think Casablanca and the era that occurred after World War I and before the next Great War. There was intrigue everywhere and it was transportation that made it all possible. You can even stage a murder mystery on a hiking trail or in a park, it is made all the more spectacular because in that era - where you were at the time was where you were. There was far less cross-over of locations so you could really capitalise on an inexpensive outdoor location.


Imagine that your party is arriving by motorcar and part of your Murder Mystery Perth Western Australia event is having their motorcade blocked on the rode by two people - gangster and moll - who have become stranded. While you stop to help, not only does a murder occur, but the cars are mysteriously disabled. You are left to all walk to the next down to try and find a phone. As you walk, even more mystery happens.

Let your ideas come to life

There are a lot of things you can with your Murder Mystery Darwin Northern Territory party that will make it unusual and unique. Using the idea of the motorcade rescue, you can throw a party that also in introducing new co-workers or neighbours to the area. By setting up clues around town, everyone will see more of it. This is an ideal way to create a bond, and let new people become more comfortable with their surroundings. Throw in a murder or two, and then end it with a great dinner and you have the perfect recipe for an ice-breaker event.

Find out what you can do

To find out what you can really do for your Murder Mystery Sydney New South Wales party you should talk with one of our professional consultants. We have been staging murders all over town and you can use our specialised knowledge about what it takes to make a good mystery party even better. We'll explain the key elements, provide costumes and oversee the pacing and delivery of the mystery. Once we know what you want to do, we can work to make your idea a reality. Hosting a murder mystery can be the best way to introduce yourself, or to take new people in and let them get to know the area and people better. It certainly beats leaving a pound cake on the step.
