Venus Flytrap


Michael cannot gouge out his own eye.

This trap consists of a harness attached to the victim's chest, only removable if the key was obtained in time. Attached to the harness was a contraption consisting of two masks opposite from each other angled down from the victim's head. The masks had nails protruding inwards from the interior. If not removed in time the masks would clamp together on the victim's head, driving the nails through the victim's skull. The victim was Michael Marks. To remove the device he had to find a key hidden behind his eye. Supplied with a scalpel, he needed to surgically remove his eye. Michael had trouble cutting into his own eye and broke under pressure, throwing the scalpel away and cursing Jigsaw, calling for help in the process. The time ran out and the two masks clamped shut into his skull, brutally killing him.

Tape: "Hello, Michael. I want to play a game. So far in what could loosely be called your life, you've made a living watching others. Society would call you an informant, a rat, a snitch. I call you unworthy of the body you possess, of the life you've been given. Now we will see if you are willing to look inward, rather than outward, to give up on the one thing you rely on in order to go on living. The device around your neck is a death mask. The mask is on a spring timer. If you do not locate the key in time the mask will close. Think of it like a Venus Flytrap. What you are looking at right now is your own body, not more than two hours ago. Don't worry, you're sound asleep and can't feel a thing. Taking into account that you are at a great disadvantage here, I am going to give you a hint as to where I've hidden the key. So listen carefully, a hint is this: it's right before your eyes. How much blood will you shed to stay alive, Michael? Live or die, make your choice."

The Electrified Staircase


The SWAT enters the staircase

This trap consisted of a staircase with a rigged step surrounded by a chain link cage. The rigged step would spring forward and break the shins of the victim if enough pressure was applied to the stair below. This would also cause the cage door to shut. The cage would then be charged with an electric current giving anyone in contact with it a lethal shock.

The Nerve Gas House

Laura nerve gas

Laura dies from the Nerve Gas Agent.

Obi Tate, Jonas Singer, Xavier Chavez, Daniel Matthews, Gus Colyard, Amanda Young, Laura Hunter and Addison Corday awoke in a house riddled with traps containing one for each person. They were breathing in a deadly gas and had to find the antidotes located in their respective traps to survive. In three hours, the door to the house would open; however, if they did not each find an antidote in two hours, they would die. Each trap contained a way to receive an antidote. A combination safe also contained an antidote, but the combination was hidden within different colored numbers written on the back of each victims neck, in the order of how they would appear on a rainbow. Several weapons are discovered including a single edged blade and a bat with nails driven through it.

Tape: "Greetings and welcome. I trust that you are all wondering where you are. I can assure you that while your location is not important, what these walls offer to you is important. Salvation, if you earn it. Three hours from now the door to this house will open. Unfortunately, you only have two hours to live. Right now you are breathing in a deadly nerve agent. You've been breathing it since you arrived here. Those of you familiar with the Tokyo subway attacks will know its devastating effects on the human body. The only way to overcome it and walk out that door is to find an antidote. Several are hidden around this house. One is inside the safe in front of you. You all possess the combination to the safe. Think hard, the numbers are in the back of your mind. The clue to their order can be found over the rainbow. Once you realize what you all have in common, you will gain a better understanding of why you're here. "X" marks the spot for that clue, so look carefully. Let the game begin."

The Magnum Eyehole

Magnum Eyehole

Gus looking trough the eyehole.

This was a security device to keep Jigsaw's subjects in the room for the required length of time. The trap consisted of a locked door with a gun attached on the other side of the peephole, and a pulley and chain to the doorknob on the other side of the door. The barrel of the gun was aimed directly at the peephole. When activated, a bullet will be fired through the peephole and into whomever's eye was in the line of fire.

Note: Do not attempt to use this key on the door to this room.

The Furnace

The victim had to crawl inside to get two antidotes suspended by chains connected to the door of the furnace. If pulled down, the door of the furnace would shut, igniting it at the same time. The only way to escape was to twist a knob that would turn off the gas and stop the fire from growing. The victim was Obi Tate and he was burned to death.

Tape: "Hello, Obi. I want to play a game. For years, you've burned those around you with your lies, cons and deceits. Now you'll have to redeem yourself, for the games you've played with others, by playing one of mine. Inside the device in front of you are two antidotes for the poison coursing through your veins. One is my gift to you for helping me kidnap the others. The second is yours to donate. However, one of them will come with a price. Remember, Obi, once you are in Hell, only the Devil can help you out."

The Needle Pit

This trap involved a pit in the middle of a room filled with used syringes. A locked door in the room contained an antidote but was set on a four minute timer; if the timer expired, the door would remain locked forever. The victim had to jump into the pit of needles to find a key to the door. The key was attached to a glow stick hidden among the syringes. The trap was intended for Xavier, but instead he threw Amanda down, as he refused to enter. After Amanda found the key, she passed it to Xavier. However, just when Xavier was about to open the door, he dropped the key, causing the door to lock.

Tape: "Hello, Xavier. I want to play a game. The game I wanna play is very similar to the one that you've been playing as a drug dealer. The game of offering hope to desperate, for a price. I think we can agree that your situation is desperate. So I offer you hope. The price that you pay is that you you must crawl into the same pit of squalor you force your customers into. By entering this room, a timer has been started. When the timer expires, the door in front of you will be locked forever. Only in finding the key before the timer runs out can you unlock and retrieve the antidote inside. I will give you just one hint as to where that key is: it will be like finding a needle in a haystack so Let the game begin."

The Razor Box

This trap involved a box suspended from the ceiling. Inside was an antidote accessible by two holes under the box, just big enough to fit a person's arms through. Once they did, however, the person would realize the corners of the holes were fitted with blades that would push up if something was inserted. If the person put pressure on the blades in order to take their hands out, the blades would dig into their arms. The harder they pulled, the deeper the blades would go. However, if the victim only studied the box further, there was a key on top of it which would open and allow safe access to the antidote. Although Addison fell victim to the trap, it was intended for Gus.

Eric's Test

After having his son kidnapped by Jigsaw, Detective Eric Matthews tried to convince Jigsaw to give up the whereabouts of the house. Jigsaw proposed a deal, stating that all Matthews had to do was sit down and have a conversation with him for a few hours, and he would get his son back. Eric resorted to brutality, and after beating Jigsaw to within an inch of his life, Jigsaw ended the game and took Matthews to the house. The detective entered the house only to find his son was not inside. Daniel was actually in the factory room with Jigsaw, locked in a timed safe and supplied with oxygen. The video feeds of the events which took place in the Nerve Gas House were a recording from hours before when the house test took place. If Eric tried to keep his patience, Daniel would have been released to him, as he was only a few feet from where he was sitting. Jigsaw even gave him a hint by saying Daniel would be 'in a safe and secure place'.

Eric failed the test by resorting to beating Jigsaw, and was subsequently drugged by Amanda and left chained to a pipe in the Bathroom Trap to die.
