After Brooks arrives, Max hosts his friends and announces that they are going to compete in a murder mystery game. Unimpressed with his younger brother, Brooks claims that he has a more realistic murder mystery game that can begin at any moment.
Suddenly, a couple of masked men enter and kidnap Brooks. Max and the rest believe that this all part of the game. All of the guests play along as they figure out the clues. Max follows the clues one by one and becomes the first one to solve the murder mystery.
As he goes over to the hiring company to claim his prize, it is revealed that Brooks had actually been kidnapped in real by a man named as the Bulgarian. The gang then follow Brooks’ GPS signal and manage to find him. They escape where Brooks reveals that he is not what he seems in front of Max. He confesses that his life is a mess and that he lives off selling illegal items to numerous collectors.
It is revealed that the Bulgarian is after a list of people under witness protection. They follow the trail which leads to the location of the Bulgarian. Naturally, they become surrounded by the terrorists until Max’s neighbor, Gary, shows up and helps them take out the evildoers.
