Title: You or your Partner?
Post by: nicklegends on June 27, 2006, 06:38:15 AM
This seems to be a pretty interesting question in general: If you were on the show and you made it to the temple, would you go in first or send your partner in first, assuming he or she was an average player?

The thing is, there's a common philosophy that ''you should never send the slow-witted player in first,'' but there's also the fact that going into the temple first likely means that you will be taken out first as well, having traversed only three rooms.

I, personally, would go in second because I'd probably pass through more rooms. I'd tell my partner everything I know about the temple, and hope that she would agree to go in first. After she gets taken out, I'd act like Mr. Turney. 8)

Yeah, I'd be Zac Turney also, probably.

I would also be Zac, and tell my partner to go a stupid way to get her out of The Temple

I'd probably be Zac...or Robbie. Man, that guy was fast.

It depends. I'd want the item to be in either the top right room, the Shriiiiiine of the Siiiilver Monkey, or maybe the Room of the Ancient Warriors. Then my partner would go first, get taken out, and I'd run blaze through and get the holiday to wherever.

If the artifact is in the central column... hmm. I might send my partner in first, so I can blaze through, but then again I might not get a chance (ie Broken Trident of Poseidon). So I might go first, get taken out, and hope they can do it. Although, if one of the two temple guards that would get me is in the Dark Forest, I could just run straight past them (ie... whichever episode that was).

My strategy would depend on the location of the artifact also. If its in one of the top 3 rooms past the central column, I go down and then up. If its in one of the bottom 3 rooms past the central column, I go up and then down.

If you're referring to Robbie from that "Pendant of Kamehameha" episode, then you're right that guy was verrrry fast lol. And as for who I'd send in the temple first, I'd probably send my partner in first. I probably wouldn't be as fast as Zac was from that Bandit Queen episode, but I'd probably run @ a decent pace. :wink:

Yeah, Zac & Robbie were the 2 fastest contestants.

I can think of another fast player, Gator, I believe from The Mussel Shell Armor episode

I wouldn't be particularly fast, but I'd certainly know what I was doing (like everyone else in this forum).

Yeah, he was fast.

Well, I presume so, I haven't seen that episode.  :D

He was, he retrieved an artifact from The Chamber, so he would have to be, especially considering he was second

I would want to go first because with my luck, if my partner went in first, it would end up being a solo run and i wouldn't get to go in at all. Again, with my luck, i doubt it would be a winning solo run as well. :?

Whoever goes in first is guaranteed to be in the temple. If I chose to go in second and it's a solo run, or if my partner has three minutes worth of incompetence, I'd be rightly irked.

Exactly, Carveyfan! I mean, think about it.... Send in your partner first and you could end up with a "Blackbeard's Treasure Map", "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart", or "The Broken Trident of Poseidon"-esque temple run! :x

Ooooh yeah, you woludn't want that to happen if you sent your partner in first.

Aha! I just thought of a brilliant plan! If my partner really didn't want to be in the temple, I'd send her in first, but have her intentionally drop her pendant, so at the point of capture, I could pick up the pendant and continue on for the remainder of the run. Unless there's a freak chance that she doesn't run into a guard (or does in the room next to the artifact) we'd have some very good chances of victory!

I'd go first. I've watched Legends for a while and know all the tricks. Like in that failed Cricket Cage episode, instead of going through the Throne room and Heart room, I'd go up to the Obseravatory and move on. I might get caught by a guard, but at least I'll still have a pendant and be able to make good time. :)

But slow-witted player goes second, and you get The Thornwood Gavel of Judge Roy Bean, The Keys to the Alhambra, The Oracle Bowl of Delphi, The Golden Chains of Zenobia or (and probably most famously) The Golden Pepperoni of Catherine de' Medici.

It's a tough call, but I'd probably send my partner in first and pray she either knows what she's doing or doesn't last four rooms.

EDIT: SHIT! I wrote this and then said the other thing in the poll.  I'm such an idiot? Could my vote in the poll somehow be changed to match what I said here?

True, but at least you would have already gone in and had your chance by then.

Depends how many pendants I have.

1 pendant, I'm first because the one pendant teams seem to have more open doors than any other team so the odds of hitting a guard are less, and solo run could be obtained.

1 1/2 pendant I'm going first.  I would find that extra half a pendant for my teammate, and clear out some space.

Two pendants, the odds of hitting all three temple guards are very high, so I would go second since my partner would be out very soon.

I would want my partner to go first because there would be less obstacles for me just in case he or she were captured.

I would rather go in second so I can bring the artifact out of the temple.

I would go in first because, that way, I'll go in no matter what.

I would want to go in second, and just steal my partner's pendant or some shit, so she gets taken away.  My best friend is female, and we had a huge discussion of this last week, and concluded that I know more about the temple than she.  I would want to be able to bring the artifact out.

I'd definitely want to go into the temple, so I'd go first.
