** It probably took a few minutes for the paramedics to check Nicholas over after his landing, and the time is justifiably compressed because he's so disoriented. Not long, but long enough for Conrad to stop playing possum and rush down via express elevator.



*** Indeed, they probably had ''all four'' tires rigged to blow if necessary, and probably set up all the windows and side mirrors to break on cue as well. If he'd shot at part of the car that wasn't pre-rigged, like the body of the vehicle, they'd blow the nearest squib to where he was aiming and pretend he'd just missed his exact target.

** On a related note, what if he'd not bothered to jump and shot himself on the spot instead? Even a blank can kill if it's fired with the gun's muzzle set directly against the skull.

** It's a bit of a stretch, but Feingold mentions that if he hadn't jumped at all, he was supposed to ''throw'' him off. If Nick had wandered toward the wrong part of the roof in a suicidal daze -- and they had enough of his actions planned already -- he probably could have caught him and gotten him back on the rails.

** In the novelisation, the roof is covered in construction equipment, so there's only one route to the edge. In the film, that's [[FridgeLogic just something that occurs to you later.]]

**** Of course everyone you announce it to loses, As soon as you mention the Game to anyone who knows about it, they lose. And I lost when I saw the Head Line for the Headscratcher too.

*** The rule is, you have to announce it. If you do, it doesn't count as a loss for the people you announce it to. If you don't, there's no real consequences, but [[WhatYouAreInTheDark you'll know you cheated]].

** Perhaps the gun ''was'' loaded with live rounds. They would not have expected Van Orton to actually shoot someone, and he didn't.
