Grandpa's Candy Shop

You and your cousins have inherited your estranged grandfather’s candy shop, which was known for its unique chocolate. Grandpa used to make all of the chocolate himself early in the morning before the shop opened. Being a rather distrustful old man, Grandpa refused to share his recipe with anyone, even his employees. When he fell ill, he hid pieces of his recipe, protected by puzzles, throughout the candy shop for his heirs to find so that they could continue his legacy. Apparently, Grandpa figured that you, his heirs, would be more clever than his employees.

Unfortunately, Grandpa had not yet finished paying off the mortgage on the candy shop. So, there is still quite a bit of money owed on the property and the bank is running out of patience. If you find the recipe, you can continue Grandpa’s business and use the profit to pay back the rest of the mortgage. If you do not, the bank will repossess the candy shop and Grandpa’s perfect chocolate recipe will be lost forever!

Eddie's "The Fixer" Moonshine Shack

2016-09-12-10-52-56Chicago gangsters in the 1920’s, prohibition and the rat-a-tat-tat of the Thompson submachine guns. Less well known is that all these hoods spend a lot of “quality time” in Wisconsin’s northwoods. The bad guys often come north to get away from it all, to escape the big city “heat”. Sometimes, though, it all followed them, leading to some confrontations.

Eddie was denied his pre-war garage mechanic’s job, fixing cabs “The Fixer” so he turned to lucrative bootlegging, first delivering the contraband in his own taxi cab then becoming a better-dressed, full-time entrepreneur as he cashes in on illegal profits and manufactures his own illegal moonshine.

So you’ve come up to Eddie’s “The Fixer” Shack

Hangin’ out with Eddie you find out Vinny is a stool-pigeon and overhear him tellin’ his moll that he’s givin’ you up to the coppers. You have one hour to make a clean sneak, before they grab you.

You’ve always been good in tense situations, so explore your surroundings and use your wit to escape!
