The Silver Cannonball of Grandy Nanny, like Galileo's Cannonball, was just a ball. Although it was a different color, it wasn't a very creative artifact.

Wild Bill Hickok and the Dead Man's Hand was lame too. It was just a pair of playing cards glued together. It's uncreative, so it can go now.

The Trojan Horseshoe was lame as well. If the Greeks attacked with a wooden horse, why would it leave a horseshoe sitting around? Plus, the artifact was kind of bland anyways.

If Trojan Horseshoe goes, so does the Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy. It was pretty much the exact same artifact.

The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart is not so lucky now. This was basically just a ceramic piggy bank. How creative! I'm surprised it didn't fall off the ladder it was sitting on. :roll:

The Dried Ear of Corn was such a lame artifact too. Why would you associate Sojourner Truth with that? Plus, it should be more than just "dried" if it has sat in the temple for that long. :shock:

If the Dried Ear of Corn goes, so should the Dried Apple Half of William Tell. Same problem that TRJ mentioned; it should be a whole lot more than dried. It probably shouldn't even exist anymore. >_>

King Tut's Cobra Staff was used during many moat crossings and (if I remember correctly) a few temple games. There is no way I would consider a reused prop one of the "best" artifacts.

The Golden Chains of Zenobia were nothing more than chains. Uninspiring artifact. It goes now.

The Stolen Arm of Shiva was some broken off arm, talk about uninspiring. This goes next.

I meant that there were moat crossings where teams used a cobra staff to cross. And I can't remember specifically, but I believe there was a temple game where a cobra staff was incorporated into the game.

Not to mention, why does the Stolen Arm look so musculature when it belonged to a statue?  :o

The Diary of Dr. Livingstone was pretty bland. All it was just an old-looking book. It is gone now.
