I picked Jewel Encrusted Egg, Roland, and Napoleon. The former two I picked because the team actually won, even though I find Roland seriously overrated. Napoleon I picked because it was actually a halfway decent run despite losing. I hope I did this right, if "what team made the Red Jaguars look good" was what you were going for.

Also, do you mind if I move this to the Chamber of the Sacred Markers? If you don't want me to, I'll keep it in the Heart Room. ;)

We pick three runs that basically describe the Red Jaguars throughout the series

I chose Jewel Encrusted Egg, Roland, & Royal Torque. Jewel Encrusted Egg was the Red Jaguars best run and was a great way to end a series. Ivory Hunting Horn is kinda overrated, just like the Red Jaguars themselves. Royal Torque was selected because it was a great run but even some runs have players that can cost them (in this case, Lissy).

And I really don't mind where this goes, either here or the Chamber. ;)

I picked - Genghis Khan, Queen Boadicea, and Catherine the Great.

Genghis Khan - The Red Jaguars had many bad appearances in S1, but this was their only respectable S1 appearance. And while the win was simple, it was still earned and the ending was memorable at least.

Boadicea - Most of the Red Jaguar losses are pitiful and bad, but this team put up a good effort. Lissy and Nate came very close to grabbing a bottom of the central shaft artifact. This might've been the Jaguars best win if they actually won. Still a very exciting loss though and my second favorite Red Jaguar episode in the series.

Catherine the Great - This one is obvious. If this run does not make the Red Jaguar list, then I would want to question the individual who didn't include it. I am proud of Kris and Kristen closing out the show in memorable fashion.  :mrred:

Some honorable mentions are Napoleon and Roland. Roland was definitely better than "Shaka Zulu" and should be the fastest win in my eyes. But as mention, Yakerra is overrated and she was kind of lucky that she won. "Two-Cornered Hat" deserves a mention too, but Queen Boadicea was more exciting and a better effort.  :mrred:

So the runs that define the Red Jaguars are Jewel Encrusted Egg, Royal Torque, and a tie between Napoleon, Genghis Khan, & Roland

Tiebreaker coming up, you can only vote once for those above ;)

I'm keeping my vote for Roland. I think Yakerra is a little overrated but Genghis Khan was too easy, and Napoleon had a blown chance at a win.

I am keeping my vote with Genghis Khan. On account that it was the Red Jaguars very first win and their only good temple appearance in S1. It was pretty memorable to me also. Although if this one doesn't win, I hope Two-Cornered Hat does.

I voted for the Two-Cornered Hat. I thought it was more exciting to watch than the other two were.

I voted for Roland. As overrated as Yakerra was, it was the quickest win sans production error. Plus, it's much better than most Red Jaguar runs.

The vote is literally tied again.  :P Maybe there is a better way to determine that last run?

To avoid bias, I'd use the Random Number Generator. That way it's more fair.

My three votes went for Catherine the Great, Queen Boadicea, and Genghis Khan.

For the Barracudas, I did Lucky Pillow, John Sutter, & Buddha

Lucky Pillow: A fan favorite here due to Missy getting a Center of the Room artifact solo and getting the first win in that space. Bonus points for the "Tiebreaker Touch" :lol: :mrblue: 
John Sutter: I really like this run and the fact that Jennifer was the only person to do the Golden Idols, only to discover how lame it was. Bonus points for the slip :lol: :mrblue:.
Buddha: The two above were obvious choices, this was just a throw in. Jennifer did have some hesitation in the Temple. She even went the wrong way and got lost in the Treasure Room :roll:. But she did recover to get the artifact and then escape for a solo victory  :mrblue:.

John Sutter and Annie Taylor were obvious choices. The third one was tough. I went with Tokugawa Ieyasu for my third pick because I thought that BB team was fun to watch all the way through despite not winning. They were a strong team that got stuck with a fairly difficult temple layout.

John Sutter, Buddha, and Annie Taylor. I know Buddha seems like a random choice, but they did win and it did define them sort of.
