Storyline

After Dave is in a fatal accident, he meets the Grim Reaper. Not wanting to die, Dave challenges the Grim Reaper to a game of chess. If Dave is able to beat the Grim Reaper, then his life will be spared, but for every piece that he loses to the Grim Reaper, someone who Dave cares about will die. Upon losing his first chess piece to the Grim Reaper, Dave decides to kill his business partner, Scott. On Earth, Scott buys a box of cookies, and dies shortly after realizing that they contain nuts, which he is allergic to. After seeing his dead friend, Dave decides to forfeit the game to the Grim Reaper so that no one else will die. The Grim Reaper refuses his forfeit, and forces Dave to continue. Next, Dave loses his Queen and Rook on back-to-back turns, who he names as his wife, Sheila, and his best friend, Tim. On Earth, Sheila and Tim are having an affair with one another. While having sex, they fall into a glass table, and Sheila dies from her wounds. The unconscious Tim awakens to an ... Written by ksvitak12
