*** Iliza from ''Series/LastComicStanding'' also got into this, mentioning things like how she left with only bacon and said "I don't know, give him bacon" in response to ''every'' possible ailment and situation.

** In the original version, you can only take a limit of 100 pounds of meat while hunting. Downplayed in later versions where you can acquire 200 pounds of meat, sometimes a little more depending on how many party members you have.
** Trading in the first game. It's a crapshoot to get someone who has what you need and you can only do it once daily. Multiple failed attempts will deplete your food supply and cost you some traveling time. Later games will give you the option to haggle.

** Accidental gunshot wounds in the second and fifth editions. They appear randomly after you finish hunting and will sometimes kill you instantly, ending your game even if your other party members are still living. If not, they will severely injure you and leave you to die a slow, painful death. These can even happen without firing a single shot! Thankfully, this issue is corrected in the third edition. You can only suffer an accidental gunshot wound if you shoot before the game reloads the gun for you (which takes about a second) and they are ''much'' less lethal.

*** Similarly, you can also get mauled by a bear or a mountain lion (the latter of which you can't shoot) after hunting, and you'll either get killed instantly or keep taking turns for the worse until you die.
** Averted
in the third edition. You can only suffer an edition where accidental gunshot wound wounds are self-imposed. They can only happen if you shoot before the game reloads the gun for you (which takes about a second) and they are ''much'' less lethal.

*** YOU WILL FORD THAT SHIT!!! Essentially, any river you come across no matter what size or depth you must [[RatedMForManly be a man]] and ford it.

** The hill music in ''II'' (and presumably [[UpdatedRerelease 5]]) can be rather startling when you abruptly switch from cheerful trail music to dramatic, ominous, loud music.

** And oh, compared to the iPhone version of the game, there has been exactly zero updates. And the iPhone version isn't Universal (read: it doesn't run at native resolution on an iPad). And to rub salt on the wound, the game's a whopping 330MB download and expands to a whopping 1.2GB upon decompression.

* GameBreaker: In the second and fifth editions, buy some 10-lb sacks of salt and then go hunting. By doing this, your wagon will fill up with well over 1,000 pounds of salted meat which you can trade for essentials.
