Octopussy

Audio problem: In the opening scene, Bianca says to Bond, "They moved the flight up to this afternoon", but her mouth does not match what she is saying.

Audio problem: Just after Bond disarms the bomb at the circus, Octopussy asks Magda, "Where was Kahn heading?" Magda replies, "Back to India," but her mouth movements are "India, of course."

Audio problem: When the circus train pulls out of the station just after Bond has the shoot out in the tunnel we hear the sound of a steam train pulling away with wheel slip, but the wheels are not slipping at all.

Factual error: In the balloon scene it seems like Q can circle around and land on a spot where he flew past previously. A balloon can only fly in the direction of the wind.

Question: How did Bond win the game of backgammon, with Kamal Khan, when he didn't get all his chips off the board? Even the two sixes he rolled wouldn't have done it.

Answer: Bond (taking over for the Major) had 1 piece on point 2, 1 piece on point 3, and 2 pieces on point 6. Rolling doubles in Backgammon means you get to make 4 moves instead of just 2, so he was able to remove all 4 pieces. If you have a piece on point 2, you don't have to roll a 2 to remove it. Anything higher than a 2 can be used to remove the piece. Kahn even says Bond has to roll a double 6 in order to win, which he does.

Answer: Not knowing anything about backgammon so this is perhaps wrong. But I thought that Bond didn't win. And the fact that he produced the Faberge egg is what ended the game. (I'm more than likely wrong tho).
