Rainsford and Whitney both have planned to take a trip to ShipTrap Island on a yatch.
Rainsford went on board to go smoke pipe and managed to drop it overboard. As Whitney was sleeping, Rainsford has fallen over board trying to save his pipe.
Rainsford ended up on the Island called ShipTrap Island and met a man named General Zeroff. Rainsford was no sure of the island at first because the first thing he saw was a cartridge.
The next day, Rainsford got to know who General Zeroff was, he introduced Rainsford to the most dangerous game which involves hunting animals which General Zeroff and Rainsford did together.
General Zeroff wanted to spice things for the most dangerous games and decided he was going to hunt humans instead. Rainsford was not impressed by Zeroffs decision but played the game and became Zeroffs enemy and Zero began to hunt Rainsford.
Rainsford had won the game and got the reward which was winning a free bed to sleep on and survived not being killed by general Zeroff.
