A group of people are stuck at the train station on a rainy night, there is a story teller among them, he started telling people one story, it was so interesting that he told another and another, 4 stories all together.
1) One Snowy Night is about 5 people after a plane crashed into a very cold remote place, 4 of them decided to leave the 5th one who was injured to die and would they survive the night?....

2) A royal minister in ancient Japan finds a mobile phone and gets a call from the future, a historical researcher verifying if the coup the minister is leading did happen as the history books taught, however this minister is actually a coward, the phone call changes all that...

3) Marriage Simulator is about a couple who are about to get married and they want to go through marriage simultor to see if they are really right for each other.

4) Chess: Defected by a supercomputer, a chess master is so devastated that he refuses to play again. A rich guy finds him and forces him to play a game of chess where actual people get killed when you lose a piece on the chess board, and at stake is his love who plays the queen.

My review:
Interesting short stories and entertaining, they stretch your imagination.
