Title: Better without an error? Day 2: Wild Bill Hickok and the Dead Man's Hand
Post by: Legends Explorer Alec on March 17, 2022, 10:00:09 AM
I was wondering if any of the following losing Temple Runs would be better without a production error. You know how production errors can screw a run up and cost the team a win? As a way to improve losing Temple Runs, one good solution would be to tell the crew to test the temple before putting the run into action.

The Lost Logbooks of Magellan
The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba
The War Fan of the Forty-Seven Ronin
The Good Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie
The Seven Scorpions of Isis

Results
The Golden Cup of Belshazzar: Yes (2), No (0)
Wild Bill Hickok and the Dead Man's Hand: Yes (2), No (0)

I don't recall there being a production error in the Empress Theodora run? Unless you're referring to the elevator stalling for Josh, that was not a production error at all. He took his hands off the actuators that operate the elevator, which is why the elevator stalled and the team came up short of the artifact. If he kept his hands on the button, perhaps he could've reached the artifact. Or if Ashley moved faster in the temple.

For the Golden Cup run, there is no doubt in my mind that this run would've been much better if there was no production error in Room of Harmonic Convergence. Katherine was moving pretty fast in the temple, but losing all that time in the Harmonic Convergence hurt them. Also, Sean ran into a production error in the Treasure Room. This was one of the most unluckiest teams on the show. Not only was their original temple run postponed, but their new temple run was riddled with production errors. After the Discarded Seal team, Katherine and Sean deserved a second chance in the temple no questions asked.

Also, you can add the Lost Logbooks and Golden Stallion run to your list too. Lost Logbooks had the production error in Harmonic Convergence and Golden Stallion had the Throne Room error.

Oh yeah, that's right, the elevator stopping in the Imperial Purple Robe Temple Run was caused by Josh taking his hands off the two actuators. Well, he may have been able to grab the robe had he smartly waited for the elevator to hit the floor like we know Ty Mathen did in the Lucky Medallion Temple Run. Anyway, do you think the Golden Cup Temple Run would have been better without having Sean and Katherine suffering unneeded errors? I think so.

It would've been a very close call if Josh let the elevator descend all the way since he had very little time. They would've had more time if Ashley didn't act like she was on an afternoon strollion the temple. And yes, I think that Katherine and Sean would've had a better outcome if there were no production errors. They didn't even seem like bad contestants at all. Katherine moved at a fast pace and had a good strategy to start on the lower path. Despite having a more time consuming dead-end than Sabrina, Katherine and Sean still made more progress than her.

So for "The Golden Cup of Belshazzar", "Yes" wins 2-0. Next up is "Wild Bill Hickok and the Dead Man's Hand".

Yes, Sarah and Josh were a good team that got screwed with a jacked up layout. Both players tried every path possible and hit nothing but dead-ends. The only other possible route would be the Golden Idols-Swamp door... a route that was never used once in Season 1 aside from the Moccasins run. The Swamp door in particular could've been a potential production error. Maybe it was the poor lighting or production error, but the layout was complete crap. No reason why the Heart Room or Observatory door didn't open. Like the Golden Cup team, Sarah and Josh deserved a second chance in a heartbeat.

I think so too. How far along would the teams in either episode we covered have made it in their Temple Runs?

A. Winning
B. Grabbing the artifact
C. Entering the room
