Storyline

One late night in a college dorm, four socially inept geeks immerse themselves in a fantasy world of their own creation. As their characters journey through forbidden kingdoms, ancient ruins, and the forsaken wilderness, the players attempt to solve a mysterious puzzle that could ultimately mean the difference between getting a life and death. Who is The Shadow? Where is The Princess hidden? Will any of them ever find a date? And how long do they have before their annoyed neighbors call the cops? Written by Mark Thomason

Did You Know?

Goofs

After the adventurers killed the Shadow the Gamemaster states that Nimble finds a secret trapdoor. When the characters open the door it is a door in the wall, not a trapdoor. It has to be said, anyway, that "find secret trapdoors" is a D&D gaming term including any kind of secret passageways, be it on the floor, wall or even roof. See more »

Quotes

Ambrose: Can you believe he would actually rather go out with a beautiful, intelligent young woman than hang out in this ass smelling basement with his best friends on a Friday night playing adventure games and having belching contests? And all for the off chance he'll sore too! Can you imagine that?
Nimble the Thief: So... We're in the forest right?

A must see for any gamer
12 August 2006 | by (Maryland, US) – See all my reviews

Having read the other comments there's not much I can add. Don't expect much in the way of production values. The acting... amateurish, but not nearly as bad as described by some. From the very first time I watched the film, I felt that I knew all these people. I have been at least half of them. I could identify with every 'in character' situation that came up, and almost all of the 'out of character' ones. (Disclaimer - I'm a woman who games, so much of the out of character interaction I haven't experienced directly, but I definitely recognized it...) The one thing I have to say is about the ending. YES! I've played in that game!!! (OK, it's more like 'yes, but...') The Latin subtitles are hilarious. I'm going to have to check out the 'empty' subtitles at some time, I suspect there's an easter egg there.

If you've ever gamed, you really ought to see this movie.

If you haven't, keep your eyes out for the next DG production.
