History

Amanda Youngs test

The Reverse Beartrap was designed and built by John Kramer, better known as Jigsaw, with the assistance of his apprentice, Dr. Logan Nelson. The first victim to be tested with the Reverse Beartrap was Amanda Young, who had been chosen by John because of her addiction to heroin. When she woke up after her abduction she found herself to be strapped onto a chair and with the deadly device placed on her head. She immediately panicked and tried to free herself from the chair but stopped when a TV turned on next to her. A mechanic ventriloquist puppet appeared on the screen and told her that the device on her head was hooked into her upper and lower jaw and would rip her head apart if she didn't manage to free herself within 60 seconds. It also revealed that the only key was in the stomach of her supposedly said to be cellmate. (Saw, III, Jigsaw)

Daniel Riggs Trial

Daniel Rigg, an officer obsessed with saving everyone around him after the abduction of his partner, Detective Eric Matthews, six months earlier. Due to his obsession, he neglected both himself and his wife, Tracy. Due to this, he was targeted by John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. After having been subdued in his own apartment at 23 Park Place by Art Blank, John Kramer's lawyer and another one of his victims, the latter put his unconscious body in his bathtub. Shortly thereafter, Rigg woke up again and scrambled from the bathtub. While he was initially dazed and confused, he soon noticed a red question mark painted on the door. He carefully opened the door, and by doing so, pulled out a metal pin connected to a TV positioned right in front of him, thus activating it in the process. When it turned on, Jigsaw's mechanical ventriloquist puppet appeared on screen and introduced Rigg to his game. At first, Rigg tried to call for help; however, when he realized that someone had destroyed his phone, he grabbed a shirt and his weapon and listened to the puppet, which explained the rules of his game. In order to overcome his obsession with saving everyone around him, Rigg had to face a series of tests. Additionally, Rigg was shown footage from an unknown location where Eric Matthews, who had been held hostage for six months, was trapped along with Detective Mark Hoffman. The puppet told Rigg that Eric had only 90 minutes to save himself, and that Hoffman's fate was linked to his survival. When the video ended, Rigg left his bedroom and thereby activated the timer for his game. (Saw IV)
