* Alan repeatedly displays his expertise about the threats which the game conjures up. In particularly, he offers warnings about what stimulates the carnivorous vines to attack and which parts of them are dangerous. Just how many close calls did young Alan have, while he was "waiting" in the jungle, to have acquired so much knowledge?

* The game that Alan and Sarah start in 1969 is stalled by twenty-six years, which admittedly weren't fun for either of them - but it could have been a ''lot'' worse for the town. Imagine if, instead of releasing a relatively harmless swarm of bats before Alan got trapped, they rolled up something ''much'' worse, like the gigantic mosquitos, an over-sized lion, or the swiftly growing vines that eat people. Such threats could very quickly have taken over the whole town, and ''no one'' would have been able to stop them.

*** Don't forget the game's description of Van Pelt: "He makes you ''feel like a child."

* If a person who wanted to play were incapable of saying the dangers/Jumanji (and I don't mean slashed vocal cords, which could be excused by speaking in a whisper, but something more severe like a missing jaw), would the game even let them play? If they lost their jaw during the game, does the game continue with that player's turn despite the game state essentially becoming frozen? Though a game like this being selective could be a blessing in disguise.

** It's possible that they're afraid that trying to destroy it might [[SealedEvilInACan unleash]] whatever horrors are inside with no way to recall them. At least with the board intact, the horrors of the game are contained as long as you don't play, or manage to beat it. That said, it doesn't explain why no one ever tried writing a note warning future players not to touch it ([[SchmuckBait not that that's guaranteed to work]]), or perhaps removing/destroying the dice/pieces so no one ''can'' play.

* Alan and Sarah talked Peter and Judy's parents out of going skiing, knowing that they'd die in an accident. [[YouCantFightFate What if they decide to vacation somewhere even more dangerous?]]
