Billionaire Milton Hughes - the puzzle, board game, crossword, and brainteaser mogul - is dead in an untimely and horrific accident. Wanting his love of fun and games to continue beyond his death, Milton prepared for such a fate, and his will is not a basic assignment of his assets to different beneficiaries. Instead, six rightful heirs separately receive single clues, allowing the entire group to easily locate and divide the fortune, provided they merely work together to solve the riddle and find his substantial riches. Unfortunately, due to feelings of being cheated, a tainted past, bad sentiments between different family members, old-fashioned greed, and one unknown among the six recipients, the game becomes neither simple nor straightforward. The pursuit has many twists and turns, as the various players plot, connive, scheme, and conspire with and against each other. Alliances are formed and disbanded as quickly as one gains an advantage and chooses to backstab another. Cooperation, suspicion, honesty, and mistrust seem virtually interchangeable. And ultimately, the game turns deadly.
