The Gin Kingpin Game
The biggest bootlegger in San Francisco has just been put in the clink. Now, the competition is on to see who's got what it takes to be the new kingpin. Could be a guy, could be a gal. Whoever's got the most gumption can win.
The adventure begins when you receive your invitation to get in the game on the eve of the event. It instructs you to gab with the flapper who's wearing the same color as your invitation, upon arrival at the party, to get you on your way.
Follow the clues, sling some gin, collect cash and figure out who you can trust. If you've got the biggest stash of green at the end of the evening, you'll be crowned the new Gin Kingpin of San Francisco and be awarded a stupendous prize!
Props & Poses
Get the star treatment in the Props and Poses room!
