E1: Beginner

Stepsiblings Sora and Shiro are known as Blank, an undefeated online gaming group. In reality, they are both agoraphobic hikikomori. After five consecutive days, they are challenged to a game of chess by an anonymous player. When Sora and Shiro are victorious, they are offered to be sent to a world run by games. Once they accept, they are suddenly summoned to an alternate world called Disboard by the anonymous player now recognized as the god of play named Tet, who departs after explaining that Disboard is governed by a set of rules called the Ten Covenants. After humiliating three bandits, Sora and Shiro travel to a hotel at Elkia, a nation inhabited by humans, where Stephanie Dola and Chlammy Zell are seen playing a game of poker to determine the next ruler. Sora is challenged to a game of poker against a woman named Lady Attitude for her sack of gold coins. Sora wins with a royal straight flush after Lady plays a full house. Soon after, Sora secretly informs Stephanie that Chlammy is cheating. While planning to stay at the inn for four nights, Sora and Shiro look forward to their new life in Disboard.
