The episode starts with the Watterson family eating dinner. Gumball asks Anais to pass the salt. Anais proceeds to throw the salt to Gumball, scraping his head as a result. Gumball then thanks Anais as he takes some leftover salt from his head. Anais asks Darwin for some gravy where Darwin pours all of the gravy on Anais' plate and proceeds to blow the gravy towards Anais. Nicole then tells the kids to settle down for some cake and proceeds to throw the whole cake towards Gumball and Darwin, but Richard was able to catch the cake before it reaches the floor, angering him in the process. Richard then asks why there's tension in the table and asks them to "lay it on the table". Darwin told Richard that Anais told him and Gumball that they only have 24 hours to live because of a disease, and Anais told Richard that she wrote it in her diary to teach Darwin and Gumball a lesson on privacy. Anais also told Richard that Gumball bedazzled the toilet seat and another fight broke out on the table. Richard stops the fight and tells them that he meant to lay the board game on the table because it was family night and he picked board games. Gumball tried to sneak out but was stopped by Richard throwing a die on the floor and Gumball angrily returned to his seat.
Richard then proceeds to assign everyone their roles and names (Nicole as a barbarian named Testosterona, Anais as a wizard named Norovirus, Darwin as a elf named Frumpet, and Gumball as a dwarf warrior named Mario Kebab) and starts the scenario on a tavern. Another fight broke out in the tavern but was interrupted when a witch tells them that there is a hidden treasure on a place known as the "Black Crystal Dungeon" (which Nicole later mocks by stating it sounds like "nightclub"). The four immediately went out to adventure and proceeded to the Forrest of Grok. An Owlbear blocks their path and Richard asks them to for their initiative roll and Gumball starts by throwing Anais into the Owlbear's mouth. Darwin follows and plays a happy tune and danced as Gumball laughed at Anais as she is being eaten. Nicole follows and does not participate, still angry at the children for making her crash her car, and was eaten next. Anais follows last and does a suggestion charm and tells Gumball and Darwin to headbutt their butts while walking towards the mouth of the Owlbear. Before his last breath, Gumball wants to hit Anais, but lands on one upon rolling the dice, causing him him to hit Nicole instead. Angry, Nicole swings her sword inside the Owlbear and kills it, but it causes a massive explosion. Rather than healing everyone, Anais causes another fight.
The Wattersons continue on their journey, but spend most of the time bickering with each other rather than focus on the game, with Nicole tricking Gumball into being burnt while the latter was trying to solve a riddle, Anais disfiguring Darwin's face by drawing on it, causing Darwin to throw a cup with water on her, Nicole accidentally rolling a two thanks to Darwin and Anais while trying to kill a giant snake, and Anais setting Darwin's cape on fire and causing him to scream so loud it alerted his presence to a giant troll. Annoyed with their bickering, Richard decides to just convenietly teleport them to the dungeon where the treasure is held. However, before picking it up, the witch from the tavern pops out of the shadows. Gumball and Anais quickly deduce it as a trap, and light a torch to reveal the witch as a giant, turtle-like monster. Apparently, the witch lured the Wattersons in the dungeon for food.
Rather than fight the monster, the Wattersons again start fighting, giving the monster the advantage to knock them down. Realizing this, the Wattersons finally decide to take the fight seriously, with the kids insulting Nicole, causing her to fly on a barbarian rage and take her anger out on the beast, Darwin tricking the beast into falling in love with him and later breaking up with her (with Richard using "Rule of Cool" for that one), Anais teleporting the monster's face into it's butt, and Gumball suggesting them all have lunch. The lunch causes both the Wattersons and the monster to fall exhausted. Darwin then begins singing a opera to get the Wattersons back on their feet, with Gumball killing the monster by hitting it in the head with his axe. Upon opening the treasure box, they only find a piece of paper which says the greatest treasure on Earth is the time you spend together. Thus, the Wattersons finally solve their differences and hug. Richard, satisfied leaves, but not before accidentally hitting the bookshelf.

[The Wattersons are eating dinner together]
Gumball: Could you pass me the salt please, Anais?
Anais: But of course.
[Anais throws a saltshaker at Gumball, the saltshaker and flies past him, which scrapes some fur off of the top of his head. A few pieces of salt end up on his head, which Gumball sprinkles onto his dinner]
Gumball: Thank you.
Anais: My pleasure. May I have the gravy, please, Darwin?
[Darwin pours a lot of gravy onto Anais's dinner, then blows it into her face.]
[Nicole uses a napkin to wipe away some gravy that got on her face]
Nicole: Now, now. Maybe a little desert will sweeten you.
[Nicole tries to throw a cake at Gumball and Darwin, but they dodge it and Richard catches the cake.]
Richard: [In deep, scary voice] I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in my house. [In Richard's normal voice] I barely got to lick the icing!
[Richard walks back to his seat with the cake in his hand.]
Gumball: [Grosseed out] Wait a minute, you licked the cake?!
Richard: Well, duh! How else are you supposed to tell they're ripe when you buy them at the store? Anyways, what's with all the tension?
[Nicole, Anais, Darwin, and Gumball cross their arms and turn away from each other]
Richard: Right, I think it's time we all lay it out on the table.
Darwin: [Points arms towards Anais] She made us believe we only had 24 hours to live because of a disease called gulliblitis!
Gumball: And that our butts would fall off and everything inside of us would spill out from the bottom like an undercooked flan!
Anais: I only wrote that in my diary to teach you a lesson about privacy.
Gumball: I was so distressed I spent the whole afternoon by the lake listening to soft rock while crossfading!
Richard: You what?
Gumball: [Sighs] Like this. [Pours water from his glass into his plate and listens to soft rock as he's crossfading]
Anais: Well maybe you shouldn't have dazzled up the toilet seat. [Stands up and points to her butt] My butt looks like a Fabergé egg!
Gumball: No amount of butt dazzling can make up for the day we had because of you!
[Gumball throws some mashed potatoes at Anais. Anais throws mashed potatoes back at Gumball. Darwin tries to throw mashed potatoes at Anais but misses and hits Nicole.]
Nicole: Oh, you little...
[Nicole, Anais, Darwin, and Gumball keep throwing mashed potatoes at each other.]
Richard: [slams fists on table] Stop fighting!
[Nicole, Anais, Darwin, and Gumball cross their arms and turn away from each other]
Richard: First of all, that is how you crashed the car earlier. Secondly, what I meant by lay it all out on the table was the game! [unfolds board games and lays it out on the table, gets out four cards, a bag of dice, and a bowl of cheese curls.] For Saturday night is family time, and since it's my turn to choose, we're raiding dungeons and fighting dragons! [grabs a dungeon master cover and dresses himself up in the process. He notices Gumball is trying to escape, and throws a die in his path, making him flip and hit the ground.] Sorry Gumball, you rolled a two in stealth, get back here.
Gumball: [goes back to his seat.] how's this gonna help?
Richard: [takes out a music recorder and plays it.] You're all travelers seeking refuge from a great storm. [hands a card to Nicole.] Testosterona the Babrbarian, [hands a card to Anais.] Norovirus the Wizard, [hands a card to Darwin.] Frumpet the Elf Bard, [hands a card to Gumball.] and finally, Mario Kebab the Dwarf Warrior! Because I ran out of character names. You stumble across a tavern called the Merl Inn, and find yourselves in the midst of a brawl. [fighting appears to be going on inside the tavern. People resembling John, the Goblin, and Leonard run out of the tavern. It is revealed that the Wattersons' characters are fighting each other.] Ugh, not against each other! [the Wattersons throw dice, pencils, and cheese curls at each other.] All right, against each other, I guess. But you're interrupted, by a mysterious voice.
Witch: Do you want to be rich?
Testosterona: How rich are we talking, enough to get my kids new battle armor?
Norovirus: Enough to get healthcare against loss of limbs and dental for my tooth?
Witch: Even more.
Mario Kebab: Enough for us to pay to get into a good pillaging college?
Witch: The riches I speak of can be found in the Black Crystal Dungeon, and they will give you a lifetime of joy, but the road to the dungeon and the treasure is treacherous, but not as treacherous as- [the Witch notices that the four have left.] uh?
Norovirus: The treasure will be mine!
Testosterona: Not if I get there first, wizard!
[Norovirus tries to teleport in front of Testosterona, but she keeps pulling her back. Mario Kebab and Frumpet chant "treasure" while they all cross a log.]
Richard: Had you stayed and listened to the Witch, you'd have known that the path to the dungeon was far less treacherous than the path you took through the forest of [chokes]
Mario Kebab: Who comes up with these names, man?
Richard: [coughs up a cheese curl.] Sorry, that was a cheese curl stuck in my throat. It's called the forest of Grok, and there's an Owlbear blocking your path.
[The Owlbear screeches]
Richard: Everyone, roll for initiative.
[everyone rolls. Gumball has the highest number]
Gumball: I guess it's me first.
Richard: What are you gonna do?
Gumball: I throw Norovirus into the mouth of the Owlbear. [Mario Kebab throws her in, the Owlbear chews for a bit and swallows]
Norovirus: Oh, come on!
Richard: Darwin, you're next. What do you do?
Frumpet: I play a merry tune and I dance. [plays and dances]
Mario Kebab: Ah, hahahaha!
Richard: Ugh. Nicole, what do you do?
Nicole: Testosterona sits this one out. She already crashed her station horse wagon because of these fools.
Richard: All right, whatever. He swallows you. [the Owlbear chews her for a bit and swallows]
Richard: Norovirus, what do you do?
Norovirus: I perform a suggestion charm.
Anais: [Rolls a die] 17 plus 2 intelligence bonus, 19!
Richard: Finally, someone's getting into the game and playing it properly.
Anais: Mario Kebab, Frumpet, head-butt yourselves in the butt as you walk towards the Owlbear.
[Mario Kebab and Frumpet's butts magically come out in front of them, and head-butt themselves into them as they walk into the mouth of the Owlbear. The Owlbear chews for a bit and swallows]
Richard: Right. You're now all inside the stomach of the beast. What do you do before your last breath?
Gumball: I pop Norovirus in the face. [rolls a die]
Richard: Your attack roll is one, you miss, and hit Testosterona.
Nicole: Then I enter a rage a rage and I swing my sword!
[All of the Wattersons' characters start fighting inside the Owlbear. The Owlbear spits out blasts of Norovirus' wand and eventually explodes. The Wattersons' characters lay on the ground]
Richard: Okay, you're fighting again, but somehow your literal internal struggle frees you from the beast. However, you are hurt, and in the remains of the beast you find it's fire gland. What do you do?
Norovirus: I pick it up.
Richard: Of course! With your knowledge of potions you can use it to heal everyone.
Norovirus: No, I throw it at Mario Kebab's face.
Mario Kebab: I throw it at Testosterona.
Testosterona: And I throw it at Frumpet.
[Everyone starts fighting again]
Richard: Despite your constant bickering, you continue your journey towards the dungeon.
[Spirited music plays while the Wattersons’ characters progress in the game][The characters appear to be at ‘The Sphinxes’]
