Gods’ Game We Play Episode 8 recap

Titled Player.08 Where Did The Sun Go?, Gods' Game We Play Episode 8 picks up where the previous episode left off. Leoleshea and Fay both declare to Mahtma II that they possess the Sun Flower, which is critical to their victory in the Gods' Game. Outside the game, Nell speculates that the Sun Flower is in one of their hands while the debuff-giving Poison Flower is in the other.

This declaration leaves their teammates perplexed, but Dax seems to understand Fay's strategy. As the Gods' Game commences, the group of 15 players heads towards the pyramid, only to be pursued by a much larger horde of cat-golem chasers than anticipated — 1,667 of them. Mahtma II deems this fair, leaving Fay to question the fairness of the situation.


Kelritch runs ahead while Pearl realizes that the golems are accelerating. Fay estimates that they will be caught in 30 seconds. Leoleshea detects something wrong and warns Kelritch to dodge, narrowly avoiding a sandstorm created before her. The group soon recognizes that the cat golems possess wizards among them in Gods' Game We Play Episode 8.

The golems catch up to the slowest players, disqualifying them by taking their flowers. Pearl is saved from an attack by Kelritch, while Leoleshea uses her godly strength to crack the ground, temporarily halting the golems. However, this respite is brief. They continue to run and spot an oasis in the distance but decide against diverting their path to investigate.

As the golems close in, most of the group is eliminated until only Dax, Pearl, Leoleshea, Fay, and Kelritch remain. A sandstorm envelops Dax, who is last seen pushing his hand with the flower toward the portal created by Pearl's Arise. Kelritch and Leoleshea choose to stay back and fight the golems to buy time for Fay and Pearl in Gods' Game We Play Episode 8.


Fay and Pearl make it to the pyramid, where they must confront Mahtma II. Fay is captured by the golems but manages to throw his flower to Pearl. Pearl rushes forward, and Mahtma II challenges her belief in surpassing a god like him. She attempts to seize the Gods’ Sun Flower but instead grabs his team's Poison Flower, activating the debuff.

This paralyzes Fay's team for five seconds and reveals the location of their Sun Flower. Mahtma II is surprised to see the Sun Flower with Fay, who explains that he received it from Dax through the portal. Fay points out that the god overlooked the human team's Poison Flower, which is then taken from Leoleshea in Gods' Game We Play Episode 8, debuffing Mahtma II and his golems.

Kelritch punches Fay to the top of the pyramid, where he places the Sun Flower on the altar and secures victory for their team. They are rewarded with the Sun Flower, rumored to have the power to summon the sun, though what this means remains unknown. After the game, Fay discusses Nell's bet with Dax. Nell expresses a desire to join Fay's team as an analyst, but Fay insists she play as a team member.


Fay reveals a way for her to participate by betting a win to reduce her losses, a feature of the god Bookmaker's games. Fay offers one of his six wins, but Miranda objects, citing the importance of his wins for humanity's hope. Instead, Pearl offers her win to allow Nell to play in Gods' Game We Play Episode 8.

Nell, at what seems like a poker table within the Bookmaker’s Gods’ Game, is told she is too weak. Her worried and disbelieving expression hints at a potential loss, while the scene pans to the Bookmaker, who has taken on Nell’s figure.
