Party animal Rick (James Duval), wild child Veronique (Mircea Monroe), uptight Robert (M.D. Walton) and six other friends vacation in a plush mansion, where they find a mysterious board game. But the game proves dangerous when it draws out the nastiest qualities in all of its players. As buried fears, resentments, greed and attractions quickly and unsettlingly emerge, the game's goal becomes crystal clear: stay alive.

The film was shot in the United States in Hollywood, Los Angeles, Malibou Lake, Agoura, Topanga Canyon, California and finally in Turkey. On 20 March 2010 Parallel Media released the Official six minute Theatrical TV spot. The film is based on a screenplay from Bloody Disgusting author Sean Clark, Michael Berenson and the director himself Gabriel Bologna. Bologna cast in the lead roles Robert Patrick, Danielle Harris, James Duval, Nick Mennell, Electra and Elise Avellan.
The film's DVD release was long-delayed, with some thinking it would never come to fruition. In January 2011, the filmmakers announced there were actively seeking a distribution deal and promised fans that a DVD would be released. The film will be released on DVD & Blu-Ray on September 10, 2013, four years after its original theatrical run.
