"The Most Dangerous Game" is a story about a man named Rainsford who is a big game hunter and on his way to hunt jaguars. Unfortunately, he gets marooned on Ship-Trap IslandĀ and meets Gen. Zaroff who uses humans as his prey for his hunts. At first, he is simply a guest in the man's chateau, but later, Rainsford becomes the game as Zaroff hunts him.

However, though the end of the story is not stated explicitly, it appears that Rainsford is the victor and Zaroff is destroyed.
