Players find themselves interpreting the characters they create in a fantasy-medieval adventure that combines humans, elves, orcs and hundreds of other creatures in a vast world. The game uses multi-sided dice that allow certain conditions to occur based on the result of the various throws (as well as the success of an attack or a certain action) and is supervised by "Dungeon Maste r", which pulls the strings of the entire game.

It is not known if the story of the film will be completely invented and will retrace some stylistic features of the game, if it will tell something inherent to the mythology told in the game itself, or if, in perfect Jumanji style, the players will find themselves inside.
