Ethan Hunt and his IMF team, along with some familiar allies, race against time after a mission gone wrong. Six close friends meet each week for a game night involving board games, charades and pop culture trivia quizzes.
Being the most competitive of the bunch, Max and his wife Annie, who seem to be a perfect match in every way, usually win every time.

This night, however, with the return of his charming, successful brother, Brooks Kyle Chandlerthe game becomes fraught with sibling rivalry and violence that somehow never eclipses the humor.
