The first rule of The Game is there are no rules to The Game

Callous investment banker Michael Douglas is celebrating a milestone birthday by playing The Game of life and death with director David Fincher in his next Gold Level thriller.

Or has younger brother Sean Penn simply reached into his old bag of Spicolli pranks to provide a much-needed jolt to the lonely tycoon’s rigid existence? More surprises await listeners who are brave enough to jump into the latest Now Playing Spring podcast. Sign the contract with Venganza today!

In honor of his birthday, San Francisco banker Nicholas Van Orton, a financial genius and a cold-hearted loner, receives an unusual present from his younger brother, Conrad: a gift certificate to play a unique kind of game. In nary a nanosecond, Nicholas finds himself consumed by a dangerous set of ever-changing rules, unable to distinguish where the charade ends and reality begins.
