* Even in 1969, could an unsupervised 12 year old really just walk around an active construction site without at least someone asking him to leave.

* This is probably the question we asked ourselves two hundred times, but why Van Pelt is so obsessed with catching Alan. Is he bound to the rules of the game to hunt the one who rolled the dice (it's also mentioned by him) or was there some conflict between him and Alan when he was still in the jungle?

* OK, the quicksand bit. When Alan is sinking into the floor, and Judy takes her next turn, it causes the quicksand to "harden," for lack of a better term. What would have happened had she waited a few seconds longer. Would he have simply fell to the floor below, or would he have disappeared all together? We see him hanging by his armpits in the ceiling.

** And it wouldn't matter if he did have another prototype. He was fired because Mr. Parish thought he left a shoe on a conveyor belt and it got caught up in a machine. Not only is that a very dangerous accident, it sounded like it severely damaged the machine when it went through.

* If it was such a big deal that all Parish boys go to the same boarding school generation after generation, why did Alan's parents wait to tell him about that until a few days before sending him there? Wouldn't it be a lot easier if he grew up knowing about it from his earliest days, so going to this school would just seem perfectly natural to him?

** Note that Sarah was still doubting herself when she came round, because the first thing she did at the Parish house was call her doctor to state that she needs her medication dosage checked.

** That makes me think of something that may be FridgeHorror. Alan's father returns saying that he forgot something and then tells Alan that he doesn't have to go to boarding school if he didn't want to. Perhaps that was the real reason he came home? He was feeling bad about their fight, was thinking that maybe he shouldn't make Alan go to military school and it was bugging him so much that he decided to go home and tell Alan right away. Then he finds out that Alan has disappeared with no explanation!

**** As KungPowEnterTheFist helpfully points out just because someone closes their eyes it doesn't mean they're dead. No one else is said to have died from their encounters with either the plants or the mosquitoes and the game ends before we can get hard confirmation that Judy died.

*** JustForFun, Van Pelt's elephant gun is actually a Winchester Model 1901 shotgun, a slightly modernised version of the Model 1887 (the shotgun [[TheAhnold Ahnold]] uses in ''[[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay Terminator 2]]''). The Model 1901 was [[CriticalResearchFailure only made in modern 10 Gauge, and was made until 1921]].
