** Thankfully, this issue is [[SubvertedTrope 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).

* GoodBadBugs: As noted in the KaizoTrap entry on the main page, it's possible to die after winning the game, leading to [[TemporalParadox the hilarious situation]] of you being elected as a city council member, opening a business, or raising money to help Civil War widows despite having died decades earlier. As one Youtube comment said, "the county board of supervisors elects people 25 years after their death, no wonder they never get anything done."

** Randal Morgan in the third edition. If you talk to him when the wagons are circled, there's a chance he'll start talking about how the "dark ain't natural." He goes on to vaguely, but with obvious terror, describe the "things" living in the dark that are trying to find him, and how he'll fight them with his fists if they ever do. It's more tragic than anything in hindsight, as it's pretty clear he has schizophrenia...when you're young, it sounds as though {{Eldritch Abomination}}s are stalking the caravan.

* InferredHolocaust: The first game ends when you [[InstantWinCondition reach the Willamette Valley]]. You might be down to two party members, two bullets, and one ox when you get there. In January. Good luck surviving til spring.
** Pioneers had been traveling west to Oregon for years before the 1848 start date in the game - presumably you'd be able to find a settlement in the area where your party could shelter until the weather gets better. Plus, this is Oregon west of the mountains, not Alaska or Montana - it's a mild place with a lot of rain all year round.
