Mordecai and Rigby try to get a refund after their game night is ruined by a bad role-playing game.
Mordecai and Rigby buy a game called The Realm of Darthon but find it extremely terrible after they play it for the first time with the other park employees. When they get to the store where they got the game, they attempt to return it, but the manager at the store explains that they cannot return the product if it is opened and they won't get their refund, even though the duo has a receipt. This angers them further, so they decide to sabotage the manager's business until they get their money back. They show up at the store again wearing amateur costumes and creative cars from the game and explaining how lousy and difficult the game is. At one point, they even make fun of the pixie game pieces. Every time they mess up his campaign, the manager lowers the price down until it's completely free with the purchase of gum — but they still manage to sabotage it.
The manager can't take Mordecai and Rigby's sabotaging any longer and uses his power from the game to send them inside it, making the costumes they're wearing turn realistic. But they still refuse to leave until they get a refund, so they are pitted against the enemies the manager throws at them. When Mordecai and Rigby manage to escape the enemies, they find an army of enemies and they fight.
But Rigby manages to use his Technomancer power to bring Benson, Pops, and Skips inside the game world as the characters they were playing as on the night they were playing the game. But the manager sees that their teamwork is too powerful and sends Skips, Benson, and Pops away. The manager appears as the game's ultimate player, Darthon, and keeps using his power to beat Mordecai and Rigby. As he was about to get them eaten by a giant monster, they discover that they can control the game too using their imagination. This causes them to have a battle of wits with the manager, and Mordecai draws a sword that is immune to all rule changes. He stabs the manager with the sword, and they reappear in the real world, with Mordecai and Rigby back in their amateur costumes, and the immunity sword the manager got stabbed with became a ruler.
As they beat him fair and square, the manager gives them their money back but gets gravely wounded by the ruler stabbed in his chest, despite Mordecai and Rigby's attempts to give him help. They are then encountered by Pops, Benson, and Skips, who explain that one second they were in the armor closet then they appear in a shoe store. It is revealed that the money Mordecai and Rigby risked their lives for was $7, which angers Benson. However, Mordecai and Rigby decide to spend their refund money on another game, which further confuses their friends.
