I gave the Sacagawea layout a 7. It was a pretty long layout for Season 3, but it definitely was winnable. This layout is almost identical to "Pirate Captain" and Jessica and Jarrid won just fine. If Lauren and Mike actually attempted to move faster, this would've been an artifact acquisition at least.

I also gave this layout a 7. Like TRJ said, this layout was pretty tough, but Mike and Lauren were too slow.

William the Conqueror gets a 7 from me. Like most center of the temple runs, this one was not easy in anyway. The Green Monkeys had to enter through some time consuming rooms, and the temple guard layout didn't make it any easier. However, this layout was definitely winnable. In fact, Jonathan and Olivia really should've won. They were a great team, but their mistakes were way too glaring. It wasn't because of the temple layout that they lost, rather it was their own mistakes to be blamed. They were still a good team though, but this layout was pretty fair.

I gave this one an 8. It's basically identical to the Apanuugpak run, and I think that layout was hard. It's definitely a run that should've been won, but it was still a lengthy and fairly difficult layout.

You know, I am tempted to change my vote to an 8 as well. If you think about it, this run had the potential to be a "one room away" guard run if Olivia didn't encounter her guard in the Crypt. And PP319 is right about this being almost identical to Mussel-Shell Armor. The only reason I might no vote an 8 because it was still a fair layout that should've been won. Unlike Marble Armrest or Hans Holbein where those layouts were near impossible, despite how good the players would've been.

Well, I've enabled the vote change, but I'm still keeping my vote.

William the Conqueror finishes with a 7.00.  :mrgreen:

Next up is a temple run where a half-pendant could possibly help you avoid triple capture.  :mrsilver:

Day Six - "The Missing Eye of David"
Artifact Location - Shrine of the Silver Monkey
Players - Michael and Emily
Rooms Entered - 6
Temple Guard Locations - Observatory, Medusa's Lair, Swamp

Missing Eye gets an 8 from me. This layout was tough for a few reasons reasons. For one, Mitchell and Emily had to take a pretty long path to the Shrine. Secondly, the temple guard placement was cheap for a 1.5 pendant run where the team could not avoid any temple guards and they were forced to find their half-pendant. And finally, where was that half-pendant? This was the only forgivable triple capture from Season 2 and I do not blame the Silver Snakes for this loss.  :?  The combination of everything above made it a tough and tricky layout.

Michael, NOT Mitchell. ;)

And I also gave it an 8. Where the heck was that half pendant? Not to mention, Medusa's Lair was broken AGAIN, and the layout was tough. You really can't blame Michael for taking a while with some room objectives.

Some people think that the Silver Snakes wouldn't have won even if it didn't end in triple capture. But I thought that Emily could've pulled off the win. Assuming the Dark Forest-Shrine passage open, she should've had enough time to grab the Missing Eye and bring it out of the temple unless she pulls a Ron/Tara and take the central shaft out. But she seemed to be pretty competent, so I think Emily would've won. I would definitely forgive this triple capture though over Queen Nzinga or Nathan Hale.

This run definitely deserves a high score. I also gave it an 8. That layout was so unfair, especially since the half pendant was on the floor in Medusa's Lair (I think, I would have to check that one topic where we talked about half pendant locations). How would Emily know the half pendant was there? I know there's a chance they could've started low, but that seems very unlikely and we'll never know if there was a second path. Just have to judge the run on what it is.

I don't think there was an alternate path, unfortunately. When Emily completes the Laser Light Room objective, you don't see the Rock Quarry door opening at all. But yeah, I wonder why the producers felt the need to put the half-pendant in such an obscure place for this run? In every other S2 temple run, it was on some kind of actuator in plain sight. So I wonder why they didn't do the same thing for this run and place it on the Observatory actuator like they did in Sultan Suleiman/Enormous Iron Nose Ring.  :?
