The Last Move

Michael Thomasson has devoted his life to video games. It’s been his passion and his obsession for more than three decades. He owns over 11,000 unique game titles for more than 100 different systems. His collection is so large, in fact, that it's currently recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. But now, with his mother sick and facing an enormous mortgage, Michael must put his collection up for sale and hope someone will pay enough to cover his costs.
