Strike #3 for Ahmed Baba. It was a good win and it was nice to see someone win after completing all those objectives, but any average contestant would've won given Shane's temple guard layout.

Strike 2 for The Trojan Horseshoe. I really wanted Ahmed Baba to finish ahead of this win. :?

Strike #3 for the Trojan Horseshoe and the part at the bottom of your foot.  :P

17 wins remain. I know this might not be a popular decision, but strike 2 for Applewood Amulet. I don't think it's quite a top 10 win, plus most of what's left is better. Not to mention, the path was straight forward. No zigging, no zagging, just a straight path with 6 rooms entered. The rooms this Green Monkeys team entered weren't all easy, but it could've been longer with an extra room or two.

Galileo's Cannonball
John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine
The Star of Sultan Saladin
Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress

The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata (2)
The Lucky Medallion of Atocha
The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus
The Milk Bucket of Freydis

The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain
The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen
The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak
The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen

Man, this is hard.

Strike 1 for Sultan Saladin. It was a great run, and Lea was a great player, but it's not as great as what's left.

You know what? Looking back at that list, I think Galileo's Cannonball should go before Applewood Amulet. I think the latter run is a better last second win. Strike 1 for Galileo.

I'm sorry to disappoint most of you, but I'm going to give Applewood Amulet its third strike. They were given a completely linear path with only 5 objectives to complete. On top of that, the missed half pendant could have been detrimental to the run. Olivia-Emma also went into the Observatory and back down into Medusa's Lair before going into the Pit when she exited the temple. That decision nearly cost this team their win.

It's not that disappointing, PP4L. I gave it a strike too. ;)

Time to make pizza with Galileo's Cannonball. Strike 3 for it. :P

Strike #2 for Sultan Saladin. Lea was an awesome contestant and I thought her solo win was very exciting, but compared to what's left, it wasn't exactly the strongest. I give her credit for getting the first ever solo win, but this win won't make the top 10 either way.

This may not be a popular decision, but I'm going to give a strike to the Secret Map of the Bandit Queen. Miriam stalled in the Jesters' Court and left Zac with about 1:15 on the clock. He was incredibly fast, but his only true "objective" was the Secret Password, which was not a terribly difficult room for S3. After that, he just ran some more. I believe the other teams' efforts were stronger as a whole.

Snakeskin Boots should go before Bandit Queen and Sultan Saladin. Strike 1 for it. I really appreciate this win due to it being the first ever Purple Parrot win, but Kelly moved at an average pace, Tony almost blew it with his exit plan, and the layout was fairly easy. This win almost didn't happen thanks to Tony, but I still like this win. I just think the other wins were better.

Strike #3 for Billy the Kid. While it was nice to see the Purple Parrots win, their other two wins (Egyptian Queen and Freydis) were better and Tony almost blew it at the end like mentioned above.

Strike 1 for Sir Gawain. This was a nice solo win, but Tiffani wasn't all that fast and she avoided a possible temple guard hiding in the door in the Chamber of the Sacred Markers. She did a great job bringing that huge helmet out though.
