The rumors are true: the death knell has sounded for the iconic Club 21 🏇, a restaurant that grew out of one of the most notable speakeasies to open during the Prohibition era. Raise a glass with us as we bid adieu to this iconic NYC landmark. 🥂

The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City, on March 25, 1911, was the deadliest industrial disaster in the history of the city, and one of the deadliest in U.S. history. The fire caused the deaths of 146 garment workers – 123 women and girls and 23 men– who died from the fire, smoke inhalation, or falling/jumping to their deaths. Most of the victims were recent Italian and Jewish immigrant women and girls aged 14 to 23.

The factory was located on the 8th, 9th, and 10th floors of the Asch Building, at 23–29 Washington Place, near Washington Square Park. The 1901 building still stands today and is now known as the Brown Building. It is part of and owned by New York University.

Because the doors to the stairwells and exits were locked (a then-common practice to prevent workers from taking unauthorized breaks and to reduce theft), many of the workers could not escape from the burning building and jumped from the high windows. The fire led to legislation requiring improved factory safety standards and helped spur the growth of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU), which fought for better working conditions for sweatshop workers. - wiki

Box One is 🤯 We love that much (if not all) of the delight comes from unexpected directions and turns. Opening the box you may well think "What's the fuss? Is that IT?!" only to be proven delightfully wrong as the game unfolds. Very few experiences are beautifully designed for just one person to play, so while you can play with others, we encourage flying solo the first time around. Have you played yet?!
