The final clue ("Check your jacket pocket") is revealed when Ryan and Sarah bribe Glenda (Chelsea Peretti) at the murder mystery office. They don't understand it because Brooks (Kyle Chandler) rigged the game for Max (Jason Bateman) to win, so the clue is meant for him specifically.

Max has the word "death" imposed on his forehead. This is because he brings death.
