The Dark Queen is a steamboat which travels along the Mississippi river from Burlington to New Orleans.

Due to increasing gambling restrictions in the nearby cities, the Dark Queen is occupied by gamblers who had fled to the unregulated waters of the Mississippi. This includes the captain of the Dark Queen who will offer a wager that the ship will reach its destination in three days rather than four. The wager proves foolhardy however when the boiler explodes, leaving the ship stranded in the river.
