In this adventure, you will travel back in history to the years 1920-1930.

The Roaring Twenties, Prohibition or Black Tuesday are the expressions you might come across....

You will be studying this time period by focusing on the conflicting lifestyles of Al Capone and Eliot Ness.

By taking on the persona of one of Al Capone's bandits or one of Eliot Ness's fighters in crime, you will obtain an insider's perspective on this special epoch.

Thus, you will be able to imagine what life was like in this strange era, when Prohibition meant war between the gangsters and "The Untouchables".
