** Sara asks Alan at one point whether they should be playing somewhere else. Alan responds that he's been living in the jungle for 26 years, so the environment inside the house is more familiar to him - it's "out there" that scares him.

** Mr. Parrish seems like the type of man to keep his emotions hidden. I think it would be very in character for him to come home to talk to Alan but make up some excuse of forgetting something instead of saying it straight out..

*** Especially considering how he loudly announces the reason for his coming back in, instead of just quietly collecting his notes and then leaving. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial "Please pay no attention to the fact that I have returned inside. I just wanted to let you know that I came back in solely to collect this important thing that I forgot and no other reason. It's definitely not so that I can have another chance to talk to you before I go or anything."]]

** There's an excuse given but not called attention to in the film; a food van arrives while Alan is heading towards the site, and all the workers are shown going to get their lunch, most of them aren't paying him any attention. After he find the game, he sees one of the workers has taken notice of him and immediately rushes off. It was simply good timing that they were all distracted by the lunch van, had they been all working he presumably wouldn't have gotten anywhere close to the game.

** That's clearly happening quite some time earlier, though. Judy and Peter's parents are still alive.

*** He also may have been intending to keep up the stern parent act, but seeing Alan so suddenly and desperately glad to see him may have broken through that shell and let him say what he really wanted to say in the first place, that Alan didn't have to go.

** Also, the kids could be GenreSavvy, realizing that [[CassandraTruth no one would believe them if they did say anything]], and that [[NotNowKiddo they probably wouldn't get the chance to offer proof]].

** They're mentioned once more. One of the bats is found in the attic by Peter. It's unknown what happened to the rest.

* We know from the ending that the game's creatures and environmental effects linger and keep causing trouble until play is complete or the next player takes a turn. So what the heck happened to all those bats that Sarah's first move unleashed? We see them fly out the door when she runs off, and they're never mentioned again. Did they migrate south to a real jungle, or could they have stuck around roosting in the Parrish attic until they died of old age, waiting for the game to resume?

Did they quickly die out in the real world, or could they have been roosting in the Parrish place's attic the whole time?
