A Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} MadeForTVMovie starring ''Series/{{iCarly}}'' actors Creator/JennetteMcCurdy and Creator/JerryTrainor. Trainor is Quincy, the gamer living in his parents' basement. Except his parents are selling the house. Conveniently, his helpful friend Wendell (played by Amir Talai) informs him of a video game tournament with a cash prize. Cash enough for him to buy the house himself. But the heretofore undefeated Quincy meets his match when he comes across a mysterious gamer called "Prodigy" that crushes him mercilessly. Quincy and Wendell set out to discover who this Prodigy is and find his weaknesses. Except, they find, Prodigy is a sixteen year old Chris Sanders ([=McCurdy=]). Whose mom thinks Quincy is her internet date... A fairly light-hearted comedy. Also has [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Janet Varney]] as the mom.
