Vanished in Vegas

Welcome to Las Vegas, where, as the saying goes, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

The Sapphire Hotel and Casino hosts Vegas' hottest ticket – Jaspar the Great's Magic Show. Jaspar never disappoints, and his show climaxes with his famous vanishing act, where he disappears into a case and reappears wearing an extravagant costume unique for each show!

Tonight, however, when his assistant unveiled the case, Jaspar did not reappear – the case was empty! His assistant shrieked and ran off the stage in tears – but was that all part of the act? What happened to Jaspar?

It is now an hour later, and Jaspar has yet to make an appearance. Undercover FBI agent, Declan Grant, is holding everyone in the casino for questioning. Everyone may mingle but cannot leave until the mystery of Jaspar's disappearance has been solved.

The pandemonium is just beginning… a magician, a bag of money, and a pet chihuahua have all vanished. Who is responsible? A ghost and a Bengal tiger aren't the only suspicious culprits. Con artists, mafia thugs, blackmailers, and thieves will all come into play.

Get ready for a one-of-a-kind, spectacular evening at The Sapphire on the Strip in Vanished in Vegas!

How Freeform Games Murder Mysteries Work

Vanished in Vegas is unlike many murder mystery games. Although the game starts with a murder, most of the characters have more important things to do than to investigate it.

Vanished in Vegas is played just like a murder mystery game. You may be trying to solve the murder, but primarily you are (initially at least) concentrating on your own goals and objectives. Unlike most boxed murder mystery games, Vanished in Vegas lets you decide how to achieve your goals and thwart your enemies.

On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer and welcomed to The Sapphire Hotel and Casino. They then receive their detailed backgrounds – including dark secrets, objectives and money. The fun then begins as they form alliances, blackmail each other, steal items and maybe even try to murder one another! Along the way they may uncover some of the mysteries of Vanished in Vegas. Who has been stealing historical artifacts? Who is here under a false identity? What happened to the promising new radio technology? And, of course, who killed Jaspar the Great? Depending on what the players choose to do, there are several different possible endings, but finally everyone finds out how they did, and what secrets everyone else was concealing.

Recommended for ages 15+

We recommend Vanished in Vegas for those aged 15+ as it contains the following themes: gambling, embezzlement, romantic rivalry.
