Conflict: "I wish to leave this Island at once... I wish to go today... I will not hunt" (Connell 73).
Rising Action: "He stood there rubbing his injured shoulder, and Rainsford with fear again, gripping his heart, heard the generals laugh ring through the jungle" (Connell 77).
"He stepped back from the quicksand a dozen feet or so, and like some prehistoric beaver, he began to dig" (Connell 78).
"Then he ran for his life. The hounds raised their voices as they hit the fresh scent" (Connell 79).
Climax: "The general was playing with him! The general was saving him for another days sport... Then it was that Rainsford knew the full meaning of terror" (Connell 76).
Falling Action: "Rainsford hesitated. He heard the hounds. Then he leaped far out into the sea..." (Connell 80).
Theme: The theme of The Dangerous Game is, violence is never the answer. No matter what other people do to you or because its "a game" violence is never the answer.
Resolution: " 'I congratulate you' he said. 'You have won the game' " (Connell 80).
