The Heart Room / Mummified Hand Episode
« on: December 11, 2010, 11:28:30 AM »
I was just looking at the description of the run earlier today and was thinking to myself.  Could this be done?  Both of the reviews on the site claim that it would have been possible.  I'm not so sure.

Had Josh stayed on his partners' path, he would have had to finish the objective in the Tomb of the Headless Kings (one of the longer ones of Season 3, I guess), and the Chamber of the Sacred Markers at a bare minimum.  Where the paths merged would have determined whetther Josh could have even reached the hand, let alone got out with it.  I think that if Josh was required to go to the King's Storeroom, it would have been impossible to get out.  Thoughts?

The Heart Room / Water Bottle Episode

In this episode, the water bottle was in the Heart Room, the Wheel Room/Troubled Bridge was in play, and the Green Monkeys had 2 pendants.  The male member of the team ran in first, went up, ran into a guard in the Observatory, went around the horn and met a guard in the Room of Harmonic Convergence.  Based on the known outcome (yes, I know hindsight is 20/20), do you think that it might have been a better choice (given the known circumstances) to send the girl in first, have her lose her pendant immediately in the Cave, climb up into the Room of the 3 Gargoyles, cross the bridge, go up to the Observatory and get removed?  I only say this because in the first season (depending on the player), you could get into the Room of 3 Gargoyles/Room of the Royal Gongs by going through the Cave of Sighs almost as fast as going up the stairs.  In addition, the girl (if she was smart) would know that she would have to go all the way up because left was a dead end.  Using the above strategy would get the girl eliminated in about 27 seconds, allowing the boy (who was faster, if I recall correctly) with another pendant with what amounted to free reign over the premises.  I think that had he not missed the Shrine/Tomb connector, victory might have been possible.

The Heart Room / The Infamous Cricket Cage run

I'll be honest here about this run.  I believe that the first runner for the Snakes in the temple actually did know what he was doing, unlike what the summaries of the run on Nicklegends' site says.  He was just a little apprehensive, that's all (not unlike Miriam from The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen).  Truthfully, he accessed all 4 of the rooms in the run in less than a minute before being removed in the Heart Room.  This was quite common in the first season, actually.
His teammate, however, probably did not know what to do.  She just wandered around aimlessly (more or less) for the remaining 2 minutes.  Since it was still relatively early on, maybe the workings of the temple weren't described to her well enough by the production staff?  Is it possible that the correct route all along was to go straight to the Observatory from the Wall Climb instead of going into the Throne Room and then going up the shaft?

The Heart Room / Rock Quarry

As you guys more than likely already know, the show introduced the Rock Quarry in part of Season 2.  I liked this setup more than the Wheel Room of the previous season, but it got me thinking.  There was space in the Rock Quarry to still access the door to Medusa's Lair.  Nobody actually tried this, but do you guys think that it could have been possible to go to Medusa's Lair from the Rock Quarry?  Or, do you think the crew simply deactivated the actuator for the week or two that the Rock Quarry was there.

The Heart Room / This is going to sound a little odd
« on: July 01, 2006, 07:30:12 PM »
I think that in one of the Season 1 episodes, when they were going off on one of the commercial breaks, I swear that the camera zoomed in on Donkeylips from Salute Your Shorts just randomly sitting in the audience with a grin on his face.  It was the oddest thing.  And I only saw it once.  I was wondering if anyone else noticed that, or if I just imagined this.
