I think the most dangerous game is Russian roulette. You play with a gun. Put one bullet in one of the holes. Go around each time and click the gun. One person will get the gun and shoot himself. DO NOT ATTEMPT If you refer to the short story "The Most Dangerous Game", the game was to see if the...

Rainsford is the ideal prey because he has "courage, cunning, and above all, the ability to reason."
ransford was on a high branch of a tree and the dogs fell in the quick sand lake thingy underneath him I thought it was a pitfall trap filled with sharpened stakes that Ransford made that killed a dog.

General Zaroff is the the static character because he doesn't really change throughout the story. When Rainsford first meets him, he is amoral and would do anything for the "thrill of the hunt". Later on in the story, he is still amoral and would do anything for a good hunt. He is not a dynamic...
The mood is omnicious and suspenseful.
He found animals simple and uninteresting.
I think whats so ironic about him is that he see's himself as such a great hunter and nothing more than that, but he really isn't. What he really is is a murderer. But maybe this isn't really irony. I think this question would suit the man who fell off the boat at the begining better. I can't...
Having been a soldier and a hunter his entire life, he now waylays unfortunate sailors to become his human hunting prey. Although they are promised freedom if they can elude him, his skill and knowledge of the island make it virtually impossible for them to escape.
The exposition is where the setting is established and the characters and introduced; so in "The Most Dangerous Game" it would probably be up until Rainsford falls off the boat and swims to General Zaroff's island.
Richard Connell never states exactly what Brainstormed looks like. He largest mostly up to the reader's imagination.
he was sleeping and that happen was in his dream.
the rising action is when the general tell him he doesn't hunt animal but people
he at first did not like or want to hunt but at he end he hunted the general zarrof.
He kills him, becaues zaroff hunts for humans and tries to kill/hung rainsford but rainsford out smarts him and ends up killing zaroff in the end.
Hes killed several animals from all over the world including jaguars and cape buffalo
well, Connell writes the story on hunting mostly as that is the "most dangerous game" but he has rainsford change his tone about hunting. Connell takes from it that hunting is only justified by the need to survive(rainsford end), not for sport (Rainsford, begining) of just the rush of it. (Zaroff)
An example of flashback in The Most Dangerous Game is when Rainsford is being hunted and he thinks back to a time when he was in Africa.
One is- The Cape buffalo head, one of the largest and most dangerous animals to hunt, is a symbol of General Zaroff's skill as a hunter to kill it.
Zaroff prefers to hunt humans because it provides more of a challenge. Humans can think logically develope fully formed ideas and contemplate next moves. Animals go upon only instinct. Humans make for the tougher hunt.
he was given a hunting knife a sack of food and hunting clothes
Zaroff is killed by Rainsford.
Ivan the Giant
He has a "fake" lighthouse, which leads ships to jagged rocks and then Zaroff comes and "saves" them and then that is where he begins to hunt the men.
We don't really know what happened to General Zaroff in the end. Itis very unclear on how he died because his last words end in midsentence. We can infer from this that Rainsford either stabbed himwith something he was holding or he simply pushed him out of thewindow making him fall to his pack of...
The title is a play on the word game which can mean a challenge or sport. It can also mean hunted animals. In the short story (set in the 1920s), the "most dangerous game" is both. On his mysterious Caribbean island, Russian expatriate General Zaroff has taken to a different kind of hunting --...
Obviously his name was General Zaroff . There was also Sanger Rainsford who is the protagonist

The climax is the turning point of the story. It mostly falls in the middle or at the end of the story. In other words it is when Rainsford changes his personality.
they way he looks acts and talks to others
\\An island in the middle of the Carribean Sea that has little to no contact is a perfect place for General Zaroff to play his game and get his hunts. Since there are no laws applied on the island, whatever General Zaroff says has to be done. Therefore, if there is no setting Zaroff wont play his...
When Rainsford was suppose to die, he didnt. Zaroff did, though..
Booby traps. Notably a pit-fall and a knife on a cocked branch .Taking the fight to Zaroff by invading his bed-room
Rainsford has to catch three cats and five tigers in threedays.
"He lived a year in a minute."
Rainsford doesnt participate willingly. Zaroff basically "encouraged" (threatened really) Rainsford with his massive russian bodyguard.
What is ironic about general zaroff's statement that he treats his visitors with every consideration?
He gives his visitors a supply of food and a hunting knife before he goes and hunts them but he doesn't give them an option of wanting to be hunted or not
the traps were made by the main character dude...the protagonist...think his name was Rainsford...ya Rainsford cause he was being hunted by Zarrof, Ivan, and Zarrof's hunting dogs.

Yes, in fact Rainsford is now inclined to hunt the more dangerous game himself.
The generals next victim will be Rainsford.

It's the beginning and the setting. So I would write that at first they were on a yacht in Amazon. Later, on Ship-Trap Island with General Zaroff. Add details like who were the characters at first. You could also add that in the very beginning of the story that Rainsford is a hunter that...
He isn't civilized. Someone who is civilized doesn't shoot down men!! He is a murderer!!
Both stories have a very dark mood.
