Zaroff has become jaded even in his hunting of men. For,too many have been so easily caught that the enjoyment has left this, his final "game." So, he allows Rainsford chances to win, thus prolonging the conflict.

But, in this extenuation of the "dangerous game," Zaroff has unwittingly exhibited a weakness, or flaw: He has given his prey a chance. This weakness is, of course, Zaroff's undoing as Rainsford is able to defeat the general and, thus, win the game.

Therefore, through his increasing of the conflict, Zaroff has unwittingly displayed a weakness that ends up being his demise.
