The Heart Room / Re: Where were the temple guards?
« on: May 31, 2011, 03:30:52 AM »
I want to quickly thank you guys for your discussion before moving on because I'm already starting to see the possibilities narrow down, and even on some of them, I've come up with a definite answer.

I'm too tired to start talking about S1L8, so, until tomorrow.  (Wait, it IS tomorrow.)

The Heart Room / Re: Where were the temple guards?

Ugh.  I was about to hit the sack, but now I'm compelled to look back at my notes for S1L7:

THE MASK OF SHAKA ZULU: Really, we don't have enough information to make a good guess.  Just based on the idea that a temple guard was in the Cave of Sighs and that they had 1 1/2 pendants, I'm thinking that the other two guards would normally have been unavoidable (Lolz, malfunctioning door).  Assuming the Gargoyle Room and Troubled Bridge would lead them to the Observatory, I'm going to narrow it down to the Observatory, Treasure Room, Shrine, Room of the Three Torches, and the Well.

THE GOLDEN JAGUAR OF ATAHUALPA: The way I see it, putting it in the Room of the Three Torches is preposterous because the long-ass elevator ride should be punishment enough.  i think that going into the Gargoyle Room would have led them to the Observatory and down the central shaft.  I'd probably have more proof of this if the front runner had tried the door leading up from the Heart Room.  I think the guard was in the Observatory because I'm pretty sure I saw something moving around in the back area during the temple description.  (I'm pretty sure it was a guard, but it might have just been bad video quality)

THE SILVER SADDLE HORN OF HANNIBAL: Based on the fact that there was a very short route through the bottom, I'm thinking they would have been forced into at least the Well, maybe even the Room of the Three Torches, so maybe either one of those or the Tomb of the Ancient Kings. They had 1 1/2 pendants, so if somebody can spot the other half-pendant, that might narrow it down.

ALEXANDER AND THE GORDIAN KNOT: I'm thinking so too.  I was also considering the Heart Room, but that seems pointless since the other guards were unavoidable and the half-pendant was near-impossible to miss.

I've always loved Sonic the Hedgehog games.  (Not many of the recent ones)

And "I Wanna Be The Guy"?  Might as well name it: "Deathtraps by the s***load"

i really don't like the new formats for many reasons.  of them:

I prefer the full hour shows.
Meredith SUCKS!
I enjoyed the fastest thinker questions.  They helped weed out the idiots.  (although some still got by)

Really, I only watch it anymore when I'm waiting for Jeopardy! to come on.

Well I'm counting the golf high score since the system doesn't recognize that low score wins.  Also, I just crushed the Space Invaders high score.

I do believe it was me who took down two of your high scores yesterday.

Based on the 4th letter being 'a', I'm willing to bet they're adjectives.  I'm gonna list off a few words that might work.

local
banal
sonar
final
nasal
solar
radar
focal
fecal
lunar
altar
rural

Wait, what was that last one?  "rural"

"rural"       and
"urban"

I got it!

Last week's puzzle is still in for this week.

Name two five-letter words that are exact opposites.  The first two letters of the first word are the first two letters of the second word reversed, and the fourth letter of both is an 'a'.

Also, this is totally just a way for people to gain status.  Soon, I will be a Purple Parrot.

Yeah.  On almost every countdown I've ever seen, Back in Black and Stairway to Heaven are at least in the top 5.

Wait, this topic is just for random posting and trolling?  Why?  I'm so confused.  Forums usually look down on that.

UMAD?

Ugh, too fast guys.

My notes for S1L6:

THE GOLDEN CHAINS OF ZENOBIA:  I disagree with you TRJ, I think it would be in the Well, because the Tomb of the Ancient Kings was the 7th room on the shortest path they could have taken, so I'm absolutely sure the diagonal passage would have worked, making the Room of the Three Torches completely pointless.  (I'm actually convinced the vertical passage from the Tomb would have worked anyway, so either way, it was probably only going to be encountered if the contestant was being stupid.)

THE BELLY BUTTON OF BUDDHA: I also disagree with you here.  I think they were in the Well and the Gargoyle Room.  I mean, they already put a temple guard one room away, it seems stupid to do that twice.

THE STOLEN ARM OF SHIVA: I think you might be right on the button, but I'm also going to consider the Well.

THE STONE MARKER OF LIEF ERIKSON: Yeah, I'd say the same as Paintbrush, but I'd switch whichever it is. (what I mean is if it was the Shrine in Paintbrush, it's Treasure Room in this one)  That's just because if they were exactly identical, it would be suspicious on the part of the production crew.

THE HELMET OF JOAN OF ARC: Same thoughts here.  What's also convincing is that they won two pendants, so they probably wouldn't bother putting the last temple guard in a useless detour.


Thank your TRJ for that picture.  I noticed that sort of thing in other episodes, but was too lazy to go back and watch meticulously for that.
