The Upside Down Compass of Henry Hudson is the most boring looking artifact left at this point. It goes now.

The Smashed Printing Plate was a giant piece of rock with random inscriptions on it. It was so boring compared to what's left, so it goes now.

The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein goes next. Not very interesting to look at.

I'm not a huge fan of the Applewood Amulet. It was brown, tan, and shiny under the stage lights, so I could never really make out what it was supposed to be.

The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun looked too similar to The Golden Cup of Belshazzar. Not interesting and I'm surprised it lasted this long. It's gone now.

The next artifact to go is the Iron Mask, finishing at spot #13. It was definitely a neat artifact and one of those ones you want to hear the legend about. But the way they positioned the mask made it way too dark to see the whole thing. Plus, it's not as detailed as the remaining artifacts...

#14: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
#15: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
#16: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein
#17: The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass
#18: The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson
#19: The Ivory Elephant of Scheherezade
#20: The Broken Wing of Icarus
#21: The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
#22: The Ruby Earring of Benzibab
#23: The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba
#24: The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen
#25: The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl

1x29 - The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa

2x16 - The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2x17 - The Missing Eye of David
2x28 - The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon
2x32 - The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
2x40 - The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl

3x05 - The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3x28 - The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak
3x34 - The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd
3x37 - The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza
3x38 - The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie
3x40 - The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great

The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa takes the #12 spot. Just like with the Golden Stallion, it was just some golden animal. It looked nothing more like a temple game piece you put into your bin.

The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta was just a bracelet with a lion's face on it. It was okay, but not the best artifact. It goes now.

This is tough because all of these artifacts are great.  :o I think the Bullet-Riddled Handbag should start the top 10 list off. I like the design of the artifact and the details they put into it.   :mrgreen:  The name of the artifact is pretty cool also. But for some reason the design of the Handbag is a little unusual. It looks like one of those pouches that is suppose to carry medicine or powder. I think this is a good stoppoing point for it.

The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak was an interesting title and a cool artifact. However, the fabric that the mussels were adhered to was a little awkward, and the mussels were not attached to it well. A few fell off when Gator crossed the Pit of the Pendulum. It will take position 9.

Remaining:
2x16 - The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2x17 - The Missing Eye of David
2x28 - The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon
2x32 - The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
2x40 - The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl

3x37 - The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza
3x38 - The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie
3x40 - The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great



The Top 25:
#9. The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak
#10. The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd
#11. The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
#12. The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa
#13: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
#14: The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
#15: The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
#16: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein
#17: The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass
#18: The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson
#19: The Ivory Elephant of Scheherazade
#20: The Broken Wing of Icarus
#21: The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
#22: The Ruby Earring of Benzibab
#23: The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba

Just wanted to point out that once we reach the final two artifacts, I will set up the poll to determine the winner. Since I will be at work until midnight just in case we reach that point. ;)

Probably the last vote I'll ever make in this thread.... The Two Cornered Hat of Napoleon gets the #8 spot. It was a very neat looking hat, but it's the least interesting to look at compared to what's left.

Down goes The Missing Eye of David. This one was interesting, but this is a good stopping point for it.

The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid goes next. It's so hard to choose now, but the artifacts were more higher quality.

This is a tough call, but I vote for The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl for position #5.  It was well-made and really did look like a work of halfway-decent art, but the fact that the girl in the painting had no top on kind of drives the creepiness factor through the roof, and detracts from the artifact's design.
