Storyline

Voss is a gamer who is unemployed and looking for work. When a management position opens up at a gaming company, he interviews but lacks evidence of leadership abilities necessary to land the job. Given a week to prove himself, Voss does the only thing rational adult would do; create a Utopian society for gamers. Voss convinces his gaming guild to follow him into the mountains and has Marsha, his best friend, document his abilities. However things get complicated when Shadow Hawk, his gaming nemesis, arrives to over throw Voss' kingdom. Written by Adrian Lefler

Trivia

During the "chased through the waves of grain" scene, actor Brandyn Cross, a LARPer, hit a pothole and lost his prosthetic leg. Fellow LARPer James C. Morris, in the same scene, tripped over the leg, and skinned his knee. As he was wearing a kilt at the time, this resulted in a bloody mess, and he was fussed over for several minutes before he demanded air and sunlight so he could recover in peace. See more »

To nerd or not to nerd, this movie is still funny!
18 February 2012 | by alexpawsonSee all my reviews

Even if you know nothing about tabletop games (Dungeons & Dragons, Illuminati, etc) or LARPing, you'll still love this movie. For us nerds, this movie is a multi-layered laugh out loud "thank you" card. For the casual movie-goer, it's a quirky trip through the looking glass of nerddom.

The story is what truly drives this film. This movie has heart at its core, and the actors embrace the heart of the material. Everyone involved appears to have been perfectly cast. The beautiful love-interest, the jerky brother, the evil antagonist, and even the bit players with just a few lines (or none at all).

Catch this movie when you can! This is the humor of Napooleon Dynamite the triumph of Little Miss Sunshine, and the heart of The Help. You have to try very hard NOT to enjoy this movie.
