Behind the scenes

  • The title "The Game of Alvar" appears in the first strip of the story.
  • Although the contemporary Sunday stories have begun to refer to the home-country of The Phantom as Bengali, this story has Diana talking about Bengal.
  • The small island visited in the story remains unknown, just as its governor, chief of police and mayor. In many ways it resembles a Caribbean island, though.
