~ Back cover text

Taking place in a 1920s setting, Gatsby and the Great Race is unusual for a roleplaying game scenario in that it is able to be played by a single small group, multiple groups playing individually with several keepers to keep the game coordinated, or a large group of up to 32 players.

The plot involves the heir of a grand old mansion whose foolish actions have caught a group of partygoers in a Groundhog Day-style time loop.
