Rainsford wins the game by not being killed, and then sneaks up on Zaroff in his home and murders him.-"He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided" (Connell 13).
Man v. Nature Conflict
There is conflict between General Zaroff and Rainsford during the hunt to see who is physically and mentally superior. A specific example of this conflict is the Ugandan hunting trick that Rainsford attempts to use on Zaroff.
Zaroff has an inner conflict when he has to use restraint during the hunt. He knows that Rainsford is above him in a tree, but decides to wait to kill him.
Rainsford tries to continue distancing himself from Zaroff during the hunt, but he encounters quick sand which stops him from doing this. He attempts to cross the swamp, but the quick sand entraps his legs.
