The Treasure Room / Temple Model
« on: June 23, 2014, 10:31:22 PM »
I hope this is the right board for this. It seems like it would be.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to be building a model of the Temple. I'll post images and progress notes here as the project takes shape. I don't know yet if I am going to base it off of a particular temple layout or if it will be sort of a conglomeration of various layouts/seasons. But it should be fun. I'm going to start building next week. Because this week is hellaciously busy for me and my band. 

The Heart Room / Bottom of the Central Shaft

This room space in infamous for failing to ever produce a winner. A few came close, but would always run out of time.

Was this mostly due to incompetent players, bad temple layouts, or is this room just inherently too difficult to access during a run because of its location in the temple?


The Heart Room / Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea

Could this had been a victory if Nate hadn't chosen to climb into the Chamber instead of exiting immediately into the pit? He had 15 seconds left at the time he grabbed the artifact and wasted 6 of them entering the Chamber. Thoughts?

The Heart Room / Random Observation about Season 3
« on: May 18, 2014, 08:05:11 PM »
I must be either the first person to notice this or the last. I always noticed Kirk's animated gestures during the Season 3 intro, but only recently did I realize that (I'm pretty sure) that they actually just used the same single take of Kirk swinging on the rope and landing in the Temple courtyard and introducing the show for every episode of Season 3.

Where it diverges is once Olmec reveals the name of the artifact/Legend, which you'll notice he always does with an extreme closeup. They would have been able to get away with this because of Season 3 utilizing the same temple layout for the entire season. I also believe the voiceover of Olmec running down the temple rooms is the same exact voice track used over and over.

Again, I feel like someone else had to have noticed this before, but it really just now clicked with me. Either that, or Kirk is REALLY good at mimicking the exact same hand gestures, body language and voice inflection. But based on the number of "Fogg ups" normally seen throughout the duration of an entire season, I doubt that was the case.

Sorry if this had ever been discussed at length previously.

The Heart Room / Random thoughts on S1 episodes

Did anyone else feel suspicious about Kirk asking the teams what their Temple strategy was? It always made me feel like the temple guards would be placed in their respective rooms based on the team's answers, although nowadays I doubt that theory.

I always wanted someone to say they were going to go one way but actually choose the other path.
