Rediscovery EP: The Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum
« on: September 22, 2009, 07:08:58 AM »
Author's Note: This is one of the episodes in my independent project.  If you have any complaints, first thing to do is to go see the episode directory here:
Legends: The Rediscovery

Episode 70px]

The camera maneuvers through a thick rainforest to stop in front of an ancient temple.  A giant stone head next to the gate of the temple begins to speak:
"LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE! With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is NOW!"

On this final word, Kirk appears from behind the Temple Guard door in the Dungeon and runs straight out into the foreground of the stage to greet the crowd. "Thank you! Thank you very much! Nice to see you! Nice to see you, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple.  The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards.  Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple.  Which legend are we gonna hear about today?"

Olmec replies:
"The Legend of the Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum."

"Well the legend is set," Kirk says in response, "and one of these six teams will get a chance to retrieve the Ace of Spades.  Will it be:
"Derrick and Courtney of the Red Jaguars?" the camera pans to each team in order?
"Ben and Monica of the Blue Barracudas,
"Dominik and Alyssa of the Green Monkeys,
"Alexander and Kelly of the Orange Iguanas,
"Sean and Kaitlynn of the Purple Parrots,
"Or Brayden and Haley of the Silver Snakes?"

"They'll have to pass some tough physical and mental tests," Kirk says, "and in the end, only one team will earn the right to enter Olmec's Temple.  But first, they must cross the Moat, and here's how they'll have to do it today:
"In front of each team there's three icebergs that?re floating in the Moat.  When I say go, one player from each team will run over the icebergs to get to the other side of the Moat.  Then his partner'll run across too, but if a player touches the icebergs with a part of a body other than their feet, they?ll have to go back and start all over again."
"As soon as the second player makes it onto the deck, it's his job to run over here and hit the gong." He slams down on the Red Jaguars' gong to demonstrate. "The first four teams to hit their gongs are going on to the Steps of Knowledge.  Hey teams? are you ready?"
The players all cheer and shout in response.
"Olmec, are you ready?" asks Kirk.
"You better believe it!" Olmec replies.
"All right!" Kirk says in response. "On your marks, get set, GO!"

?There they go! This is fast!? Kirk shouts out as the team players all get across at a rapid pace.  Within seconds, the teams start locking in. ?Got Red Jaguars? two teams? three? four, and that?s it!?
The Moat officially ends only fifteen seconds after it began, and the camera cuts to Kirk standing by the Red Jaguars, who are jumping up and down and giving each other high-fives. ?Red Jaguars over in a flash! They?ll be goin? on to the Steps of Knowledge, along with the Blue Barracudas?? the camera briefly shows each qualifying team? ?and the Green Monkeys? and the Orange Iguanas! Purple Parrots and Silver Snakes gave it a great effort too, it was a real close match.  We?ve got a great gift for them for playing and here?s what it is.?
Dee reads the consolation prize:
"Look at the entertaining fun you?ll have when you strap on Moon Shoes.  Super excitement is yours when you bounce higher than ever! Don?t leave Earth without Moon Shoes, from Big Time Toys!"

Rediscovery EP: The Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum
« Reply #1 on: September 22, 2009, 07:12:07 AM »
The four teams are now at the top of the Steps of Knowledge accompanied by Kirk. "As the quest continues, it's now time for Olmec to tell us about the Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum.  But pay attention teams, because your knowledge of the Legend can bring you one step closer to Olmec's Temple."
Olmec begins to tell the legend:
"One of the biggest risk-takers of the Wild West was Tom Ketchum, better known as Black Jack.  He used to be a cowboy for a while, but when he turned 27, he left his home in Texas and started to cause a lot of trouble all throughout the west.  He shot people out, robbed banks and trains and gambled with all the money he won.  He eventually joined up with the Hole in the Wall gang and focused on robbing trains specifically, but legend has it his luck would soon take a turn for the worse.  He boarded the so-called 'Train of Consequences' headed to New Mexico, but the conductor, Frank Harrington, tried to slow him down.
" 'Lemme cut y' a deal,' said Frank. 'Y'all kin rob this train if'n ya beat me in a game o' poker, but if'n ya lose, ah turn y'all inta the authorities.'
"Black Jack, ever the gambler, couldn't resist.  He accepted the bet, and while Frank had the engineer take over the controls, Black Jack let Frank deal the cards? all the while keeping an Ace of Spades up his sleeve.  Frank revealed the Five of Hearts and all four Nines, while Black Jack had a King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Seven? all Spades.  He tried to switch in the Ace to make a royal flush, but Frank caught him and stopped him.
" 'Ah knew you'd try ta pull a fast 'un,' Frank said, and he had Black Jack turned in when they got to New Mexico.  Black Jack Ketchum was sentenced to death and hung, and the Ace of Spades he tried to use to cheat disappeared.  Your quest is to find the Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum and bring it back here."

"Thank you," Kirk says after Olmec finishes telling the legend. "So tell us, Olmec: Where is the Ace of Spades?"
Olmec replies:
"The Ace of Spades can be found in the Crystal Cave." The camera zooms in on a small playing card standing by a corner lodged in the icy ledge in the front of the Crystal Cave, then fades back to Kirk.

"Teams," Kirk begins, walking down the steps, "you're now standing on the Steps of Knowledge, and in a minute, Olmec will ask you a question.  If you think you know the answer, I want you to stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you.  If you're right, you're gonna move down to the next level, but if you're wrong or run out of time, I'll give the other teams a chance to answer.  The first two teams to make it to the bottom level will be one step closer to Olmec's Temple.  Olmec, we're now ready for your first question."

Olmec begins:
?Was Black Jack Ketchum?s real first name: Bill, Tom or Joe??
Monica hits the marking first: ?Tom.?
?Correct,? answers Olmec.
?Nice job, Blue Barracudas, step down,? says Kirk, and the Blue Barracudas move down to the second level. ?Next question.?
Olmec asks:
?Did Black Jack like to rob: Conestoga wagons???
A stomp by Alyssa interrupts Olmec: ?Trains.?
?Correct,? Olmec replies.
?Green Monkeys, step down!? says Kirk, and the Green Monkeys move down to the second level. ?Next question, Olmec.?
Olmec now asks:
?According to legend, was Black Jack?s last train robbing interrupted by a man named: Frank, Harry or Billy Bob??
Nobody rings in before time runs out, indicated by a bell. ?Time?s up! The man?s name was Frank.?
?All right, Olmec, next question,? says Kirk.
Olmec asks:
?Was Frank the train?s: Engineer, Brakeman or Cond???
Dominik cuts Olmec off this time: ?Conductor.?
?That is correct,? answers Olmec.
?Green Monkeys now just one step away from the Temple Games,? says Kirk as the Green Monkeys walk down onto the third step, ?but we?re looking for two teams.  Next question, Olmec.?
Olmec then asks:
?According to our legend, did Frank and Black Jack decide their fates in a game of: Blackjack, Poker or Crazy Eights??
Courtney gongs in: ?Poker.?
?Correct.?
?Orange Iguanas can still get into this,? comments Kirk as the Red Jaguars move down to the second level alongside the Blue Barracudas. ?This match is heating up.  Next question.?
Olmec asks:
?When Black Jack lost, did he later: Get sentenced to death, Spend a lifetime in prison or Escape??
After a second of hesitation, Derrick hits the marking first: ?Death penalty???
There is a brief pause.
?That is correct,? Olmec says in response.
?Red Jaguars now just one step away from the Temple Games!? Kirk remarks as the Red Jaguars move down again. ?The other teams can still catch up.  Next question.?
Olmec?s next question is as follows:
?In our legend, was Frank?s hand a: Full house, Four of a kind or Straight flush??
There?s another brief pause before Kelly buzzes in: ?Um? Four of a kind???
?Correct.?
?All right! Orange Iguanas are on the board!? remarks Kirk, and a big portion of the audience begins to cheer as the Orange Iguanas move down a step. ?They might come back in this! Let?s keep going.?
Olmec continues:
?Which of these gangs was Black Jack a member of: The Dalton Gang, The Hole-in-the-Wall Gang or Butch Cassidy?s Wild Bunch??
Alexander stomps down and guesses: ?The? uh? the Dalton Gang???
?Incorrect,? Olmec replies, and a few groans can be heard.
Derrick gongs in: ?The? Hole-in-the-Wall Gang???
?That is correct!? shouts Olmec, and the Red Jaguars jump down to the bottommost step.
?All right, we got our first team headed on to the Temple Games, and it?s the Red Jaguars!? announces Kirk. ?Who?s gonna join them: The Blue Barracudas, the Orange Iguanas or the Green Monkeys? Next question, Olmec.?
Olmec asks:
?Which of these is the best hand in poker: Straight flush, Royal flush or Four???
A stomp by Dominik interrupts Olmec: ?Royal flush.?
?THAT IS CORRECT!? bellows Olmec, and the Green Monkeys excitedly hop down next to the Red Jaguars.  The audience cheers as Kirk walks up the middle of the step past the two teams and turns to face the camera.
?That?s it! We got our two teams!? he announces as the Red Jaguars and Green Monkeys celebrate by high-fiving each other, shaking hands and so on. ?It?s the Red Jaguars and the Green Monkeys! The Blue Barracudas and Orange Iguanas? come on down here, guys?? the other teams move down a step? ?they gave it a great effort too.  We got a nice gift for them for playing and here?s what it is.? Ben, Monica, Alexander and Kelly will each be receiving a copy of Zoom on DVD.
The camera cuts away from the consolation prize and back to Kirk and the only two remaining teams at the bottom of the Steps of Knowledge. ?These two teams will be playing for the right to enter Olmec?s Temple,? he says, ?and they?re gonna do it right after this!? The camera zooms in on the skeleton hanging on the main ladder in the Dungeon before fading to commercial.

Rediscovery EP: The Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum
« Reply #2 on: September 22, 2009, 07:13:01 AM »
Kirk is standing in front of the Great Chasm surrounded by the four remaining players. ?Welcome back to Legends!? he says. ?Now, of course, the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest, so let?s get to know our team players.? He turns to talk to the black boy on his immediate right. ?On the Green Monkeys, we have Dominik.  How old are you??
?Twelve,? he replies.
?And I understand you play basketball and you want to be writer,? Kirk says, reading off the index card in his hand. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well,? Dominik replies, ?I got this story going? where this guy?s ex-wife? is, um, trying to find him for revenge.?
?Sounds interesting,? Kirk says, then going to interview the brunette girl on Dominik?s right. ?And your partner here is Alyssa.  How old are you??
?Twelve,? she replies.
?Now, you told me you like to play piano and you like to paint,? Kirk reads. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well, I?ve been playing piano since I was four,? explains Alyssa, ?and I paint with watercolors a lot.?
?What do you like to paint?? Kirk asks.
?Um? mostly fields, seas, clouds? lots of landscapes.?
?This is one creative team,? Kirk says. ?Let?s hear it for the Green Monkeys!? The audience applauds for a moment as Kirk goes to interview the bushy-brown-haired boy just right of center screen. ?And on the Red Jaguars, we have Derrick.  How old are you??
?Thirteen,? he replies.
?And you also play piano and you want to get into music,? Kirk reads. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well,? explains Derrick, ?I listen to a lot of music, but I?m really into jazz.  I wanna learn to play the bass, the sax and really get into composing stuff.?
?Sounds good,? Kirk comments before going to interview the freckled girl on Derricks?s left, whose blond hair was tied back with a pink scrunchie. ?And Courtney, how old are you??
?Twelve,? she replies.
?And I understand you like hanging out at the mall, but you?re also on your school?s swim team,? Kirk says. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well,? she explains, ?I?ve been swimming for a few years, and I?m best with the backstroke.?
?These guys are strong and determined.   Let?s hear it for the Red Jaguars!? he remarks.  The audience applauds for a moment again.

?Okay, you girls can go get set up for the first Temple Game, guys, you can go get set up for the second one over there,? Kirk says as Courtney and Alyssa, then Derrick and Dominik, walk offscreen, ?and I'll tell you what's gonna happen here.  In the Temple Games, each team will be competing to win?" he opens a pouch and pulls out a small gold medallion to show to the camera? "Pendants of Life.  They?ll need those Pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded Temple Guards as they make their way through the Temple.  There are three Temple Games, and Olmec? tell us about Temple Game #1.?

Olmec begins:
?In Black Jack Ketchum?s time, people got from place to place on horseback, and in this game, you must prove your horsemanship.  Hold on tight to the horse you?re lying on, because when Kirk gives the signal, the horse will begin to spin.
?The player that?s still on the horse after 60 seconds? or the player that stays on the longest? wins.?
The camera fades to Kirk, who is standing in front of the mechanical horse. ?It?s gonna be a bumpy ride,? he says. ?Let?s set the clock for 60 seconds.? The clock then appears in the bottom-right corner of the screen. ?On your mark, get set, GO!?
Courtney and Alyssa hold on tight to the mechanical horses as the machine spins.  Starting clockwise, the machine switches direction after every fifteen seconds or so; both players begin to lose grip when the machine rotates counterclockwise for the second time, but Courtney falls off first, with seven seconds to go.  Alyssa falls off two seconds later.
?That?s it!? announces Kirk. ?C?mon over, guys!? The girls run over to meet Kirk in the foreground. ?Alyssa stayed on the longest, so she wins a half Pendant of Life for the Green Monkeys!? The audience applauds briefly. ?Red Jaguars can catch up in the next game, that?s worth a half Pendant.  Olmec, tell us about it.?

Olmec continues:
?Black Jack?s poker hand would have been a royal flush if he put in the Ace of Spades without Frank looking, but in this game, you need to find the four cards other than the Ace to make the royal flush.  When Kirk gives the signal, fling yourself onto the spider web in front of you and climb up to one of the containers and break it open.  Each container has a different card, but only four are the right ones to complete the royal flush.  When you find a card that you think is correct, come back down and stick it on your board.  The order you put the cards in on the board doesn?t matter.
?The first player to correctly complete the hand? or the player that?s placed the most correct cards on the board after 60 seconds? wins.?
?Just to be clear, folks, we?re not doing any gambling here,? Kirk says. ?Let?s put 60 seconds on the clock.? The clock appears in the corner of the screen. ?On your mark, get set, GO!?
Derrick and Dominik throw themselves onto the netting and both climb over to the left side of the nets to try and find the first cards.  Derrick opens the first cubbyhole he gets to, pulls out the Jack of Spades and climbs down to put it on the board with 48 seconds left.  Dominik, a slower climber, is only reaching the cubbyhole in the top-left corner right then.  He pulls out the Three of Hearts, which he throws away before moving on to a new hole.  Derrick picks up speed, and as a result, both players reach their respective left-center holes with :43 left.
However, Dominik pulls out the Seven of Clubs while Derrick pulls out the Ten of Spades.  Dominik takes a second before throwing his card away, while Derrick jumps down and places the next card on the board.  Dominik crawls back over to the lower hole on the left edge, breaks through the paper cover and pulls out the Queen of Spades, which he takes down with him.  Derrick places his second card on the board with 37 seconds left, but Dominik gets his first one there a few seconds later.
?This game?s a two things,? Kirk explains. ?You gotta know what you need and what you don?t need, and you gotta climb fast.? Derrick goes straight up after a lot of indecision, while Dominik goes directly for the top-right corner.  Both pull out one of the cards needed for the hand: Derrick gets the Queen while Dominik gets the King.  Derrick ends up getting his ankle caught in the rope on his way down, allowing Dominik to catch up so that they each get their next cards on the board around the same time.
?Red Jaguars just need the one more to win it!? Kirk exclaims as the cards land on the board with 20 seconds remaining.  Dominik climbs straight up to the center hole, while Derrick goes for the rightmost hole.  He first pulls out the Seven of Clubs, then throws it away and moves up to the corner.  He then pulls out the King of Spades right after Dominik gets the Jack from the center hole with only eight seconds left.  At the last second, Dominik gets the Jack on his board, but Derrick can?t quite make it to the board in time, and when time expires, a pattern of ceiling spotlights flashes to indicate that the game is over.  Derrick gets the card on the board a second after time is called.
?All right, that?s it!? Kirk announces, running over to count the scores. ?Red Jaguars got? that last one wasn?t in time?? he points at the King of Spades? ?three of the right cards.  Green Monkeys also got three of the right cards! It?s a tie, so they each get the half Pendant of Life!? The audience applauds again. ?So now it?s Green Monkeys with a full Pendant, Red Jaguars with just a half.  We go to the third and final game; it?s worth a full Pendant.  Olmec, tell us.?

Olmec narrates:
?As an outlaw, Black Jack Ketchum had to be ready for a shootout.  When Kirk gives the signal, lob a cannonball at one of the targets on the wall.  Then you partner will place a cannonball in the slingshot and aim at the targets on the wall.
?The first team to knock down all four targets? or the team that?s further along after 60 seconds? wins!?
?This is for the Temple,? Kirk comments. ?Let?s put 60 seconds on the clock.? The clock then appears in the corner of the screen, and Kirk steps to the side. ?On your marks, get set, GO!?
By a stroke of luck, the Green Monkeys get their first target knocked down on their first try.  From then until only about 20 seconds are left, both teams? aims are very far off; the Monkeys knock down a second target at that point, but up until then cannonballs fly into the Moat and bounce off the Steps of Knowledge.  At the last minute the Red Jaguars knock over one target, but when the ceiling spotlights flash, the winner is clear.
?All right, let?s check out the scores!? announces Kirk, stepping forward. ?The Red Jaguars got one down, but the Green Monkeys got two down, giving them the full Pendant!? The audience applauds again. ?So it?s Green Jaguars with two Pendants, the Red Jaguars had a half? Green Monkeys are going to the Temple!? Dominik and Alyssa high-five several times, jumping up and down as Kirk goes to talk with the Red Jaguars. ?Red Jaguars gave it a great effort too.  Here?s what we?ve got for them.? Derrick and Courtney will each be receiving a copy of the Kingdom Hearts II PlayStation 2 game.
The camera cuts back to Kirk with just the Green Monkeys in front of the slingshots used in the third game. ?Now we?ll see if the Green Monkeys can make it through Olmec?s Temple and retrieve that Ace of Spades,? he says, ?right after this!? The camera zooms in on the Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum in the front of the Crystal Cave before fading to commercial.

Rediscovery EP: The Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum
« Reply #3 on: September 22, 2009, 07:13:52 AM »
Kirk stands in front of the Temple's stairs to the camera-right of Alyssa and Dominik. "Welcome back to Legends," he says to the camera. "The Green Monkeys have proven themselves worthy and now have earned the right to enter the Temple.  But first, Olmec?s gonna give them some information to help them retrieve the Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum."
Olmec begins to give the rundown:
?You could start by climbing through the Crevasse and climbing down into the Great Chasm.  Crawl through the pit, then race into the Crystal Cave, where you can grab the Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum.  Pull down the correct icicle, and you could choose to go up into the Cathedral, or into the Junction of the Secret Shafts.  If you escape, you might have a chance to enter the Switch Inferno.  Hit the right actuator to go upstairs, or plow through the wall and into the Dungeon.
?There, climb up the Pharaoh?s Secret Passage into the Geographer?s Study.  Take the correct book off the bookshelf to open the door? to the Shrine? of the Silver Monkey.  Assemble the statue, and you may be headed for the Knights? Barracks.  Place the sword in the correct sheath, and you could advance into the Laser Light Room.  Find the right combination to unleash the power of the laser, and swing on the rope back across the Great Chasm.  Then, pass through the Arctic Antechamber, race down the stairs and back through the Temple Gate.  The choices are yours and yours alone.? Olmec pauses for a second here. "You won 2 Pendants in the Temple Games.  Who's going first??
"I am!" shouts Alyssa, raising her hand in the air.
"Very well, Alyssa!" replies Olmec as Kirk hands out the Pendants of Life. "When Kirk gives the signal, you'll race through the gates into the Temple and make your way towards the Ace of Spades.  Hidden inside the Temple are three ventilation shafts that let out in the Junction of the Secret Shafts, as well as Temple Guards assigned to protect three specific rooms.  You can trade your Pendant for an extra life and go on, but if you're caught without a Pendant, you'll be taken out of the Temple? and then it'll be Dominik's turn to enter and try his luck.  If you can reach the Ace, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish.  Return through the gates with the Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum in three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded? and here's how!"
?   For just getting into the Temple, they?re both going to get a skateboard provided by Vans.
?   If they can reach the Ace of Spades within three minutes, they?re also going to get Compton?s Interactive Encyclopedia on CD-ROM, by Compton?s New Media.
?   And if they can get the Ace of Spades out of the Temple before 3 minutes is up, they?ll both be going to Krystal Cancun! Krystal Cancun, the resort for beach lovers, with excursions to Mayan ruins.  It?s rich in history and rich in pleasure.  Krystal Cancun, for a prize package totaling $12,546!

"Sounds great! Let's get 'em there!" Kirk says before turning to Dominik. "So, Dominik, maybe you could tell us your strategy, and how you think you're gonna get to the Ace of Spades."
"Well, um," Dominik begins to explain, "we're gonna go up and across the Pit, then into that room up there?" he points to the Laser Light Room? "then we're gonna climb all the way down, get the Card and come out."
"Well, we're about to see if that works out here," Kirk says. "Mouthpieces in.  Lower the gate, Olmec!"
Olmec groans gutturally as he lowers the gate; the blue lights under him are turned off.
"Set the clock for three minutes." The clock appears onscreen. "On your mark, get set, GO!"

?There she? Oh! She slips and falls, but she gets up and keeps going!? Kirk remarks as Alyssa stumbles on her way up the stairs.  She rushes up into the Arctic Antechamber, where she runs through all three ice walls before advancing into the Great Chasm with 2:46 remaining.  She swings across the gap, hits the actuator for the Laser Light Room and runs up the stairs into the room.  She kneels down in front of the metallic column and starts to align the sections, but at 2:31, out jumps the first TEMPLE GUARD!
?Woah! There?s the Temple Guard! She?s gotta give him one of her Pendants!? shouts Kirk as Alyssa turns to see the guard and screams. ?He really shook her up there!? Alyssa takes a few seconds, but finally hands over her Pendant of Life with 2:25 remaining.  She then gets back to aligning the column, finishing with 2:10 on the clock.  The column lights up and emits a laser beam from the dome on top, so Alyssa moves on into the Knights? Barracks. ?There! She?s into? the room where she?s gonna have to put away the sword to open a door!? Alyssa looks around for a few seconds before grabbing the sword on the front railing and putting it in the sheaths sticking out of the helmets of the suits of armor. ?She wanted to go down, but now she?s gotta go the long way!? Alyssa starts with the rightmost armor and moves stage-left, opening the door by putting the sword in the leftmost sheath with 1:48 left.  She looks at the cameraman confused for a second before moving on.
?All right! Now she?s into the Shriiiiiiine of the SIIIIIL-ver Monkey!? exclaims Kirk as Alyssa runs into the next room and starts grabbing the pieces of the statue one at a time, starting with the base.
?Go Alyssa!? Dominik calls from the sidelines. ?C?mon, you can do it!?
?She knows how it?s done,? says Kirk as Alyssa grabs the middle and puts it on top of the base; however, one of the base?s corners isn?t in all the way. ?She?s got the base and the middle, so now all she needs is the head and she?s gotta jam it down!? When Alyssa puts in the head, she pushes down on it until the corner of the base pops in.  At 1:22, the statue is properly assembled, and the doors into the Dungeon and the Geographer?s Study are opened.  Instantly, Alyssa heads into the Geographer?s Study.  She pulls the first of the three large atlases marked ?ACTUATOR? off the bookcase, but then a pair of arms reach out from behind the bookcase? she?s been caught by the second TEMPLE GUARD!
?There?s another Temple Guard, she?s out of Pendants! Go Dominik!? remarks Kirk, and Dominik races up into the Temple with 1:10 remaining.  He races through the Arctic Antechamber, swings on the rope across the Great Chasm, and runs across the rest of the top floor to get to the Geographer?s Study with 39 seconds remaining. ?He?s into the Geography Room! He?s gotta hurry if he wants to get the Ace of Spades!? Dominik pulls down another one of the three atlases, this time opening the door to the Pharaoh?s Secret Passage.  He looks over at the newly-open door, goes through and slides down the tunnel. ?He?s got a Pendant, he?s got thirty seconds in the Pharaoh?s Slide! C?mon Dominik!? Dominik sets foot in the Dungeon with 27 seconds left; he heads over to the breakaway rock wall, but before he can touch it, out from the door in the back of the room comes the third TEMPLE GUARD!
?That?s the last one! Now they got no more Pendants!? Kirk explains as Dominik drops off his Pendant of Life with the Temple Guard with 21 seconds left.  He plows through the wall into the Switch Inferno, where he starts in pressing the actuators on the camera-right wall of the room.  The second one he hits opens the door into the Junction of the Secret Shafts (0:15!), and he crawls through. ?Now he?s just one room away! Alyssa?s goin? wild!? Dominik races across the room, hits the actuator for the door into the Crystal Cave and heads in (0:07!!). ?He?s in the room! Grab it!? With five seconds remaining, Dominik grabs the ACE OF SPADES! He heads for the door into the Great Chasm and goes through? but we?re out of time!
?They got it with just five seconds left!? shouts Kirk. ?They did a great job and it was close.  They didn?t get out, but they got to the Ace of Spades, so they get the online encyclopedia and the skateboards.  Did the Temple Guard scare you?? He puts his microphone up to Alyssa?s mouth.
?Yeah he did,? Alyssa laughs.
?Well, they did a great job here, but we gotta get outta here,? Kirk says. ?Join us next time for another great Legend of the Hidden Temple!? Kirk and Alyssa wave to the camera.  Dominik joins them a moment later, and the camera shows rooms such as the Crystal Cave and the Cathedral along with shots of the Moat as the credits roll.

Rediscovery EP: The Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum
« Reply #4 on: September 22, 2009, 07:20:39 AM »
Temple Run Summary
Episode 70px]

Name of Artifact: The Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum
Season: 2
Layout: 5 (9 overall)
Result: Did not escape in time
Time Remaining: N/A
Team: Green Monkeys
Pendants Won: 2
Location of Artifact: The Crystal Cave




A victory when the artifact is in the bottom room of the central shaft hasn't happened yet.  In fact, just reaching the artifact when it's there is usually a job and a half.  This team went through the same Temple design as the Blue Barracudas in "The Red Sash of Tokugawa Ieyasu" in Season 3 of the original show, but due to relatively easier rooms (two more rooms here that have actuator objectives), the team managed to get the artifact in time.  However, had they noticed the door from the Shrine of the Silver Monkey to the Dungeon was open or had the frontrunner moved faster on the upper floor, there's a chance that this could have been a win.

Trivia and Records:
In The Rediscovery, this was the first time an artifact located in the bottom room of the central shaft is grabbed before time runs out.  This episode also features the first of only a few completions of the Geographer's Study objective? revealing players don't actually need to put the book on the pedestal in the front of the room, as Olmec said all throughout Layout VIII? as well as one of the shortest Moat crossings on record (only fifteen seconds).  Also, did anyone else notice the Megadeth song reference in the legend? It sure caught me off-guard.

Personally, I'm surprised that the "trapeze and ace of spades" game wasn't played, but this was a really good episode. Not my personal favorite, but...

Love the assload of detail on the second temple game. :D

@TBF: The amount of detail seems to vary based on a combination of the game itself and my mood, heheh.  IIRC the trapeze game was in the Annie Oakley episode, since apparently she could shoot the ace out of a card.  Black Jack wasn't as much of a sharpshooter.

Thanks guys!
