Rainsford and his shipmates were on a boat and him and a friend were talking about a island they past and how it had this weird curse. Then everyone fell asleep except Rainsford.
Rainsford fell over shore and was weak and he found this place where he heard gun shots and meet a man named General Zaroff and they both shared a passion of hunting but General Zaroff got bored of hunting animals so he greated a "game".
Rainsford wanted to leave Zaroffs home once he knew his "game" was about haunting people but Zaroff didnt want that so he made a bet if he won then Rainsford would have to stay but if Zaroff lost then Rainsford could go home.
Rainsford set up traps for Zaroff and they faild but one killed Ivan and Zaroff had his hounds serach for Rainsford and he jumped off a cliff to escape them winning the game.
Rainsford hides in Zaroff's room and wait for him. When Zaroff comes to his room Rainsford comes from behind the curtain and saying since he won he was going to sleep in Zaroff's bed and feed him to his hounds and Rainsford got to go home.
