The two men discuss how the world consists of predators and prey, and that they are from the first type. While debating, the two men hear gunshots.

There he meets General Zaroff and his gigantic servant, Ivan. What will Whitney do to rescue his friend after he falls overboard? Will he try to save him? What will Rainsford experience on the island? Who are General Zaroff and Ivan, and how will they welcome Rainsford? And what is "the most dangerous game"? Find all the answers in Richard Connell’s short story "The Most Dangerous Game" from 1924.
