So I thought I'd something new here, this time rating the color combinations on the show. First we're gonna cover the Steps of Knowledge pairs, and then move on to the temple games. Please keep in mind it's not about the Steps of Knowledge rounds. We're rating these match ups based on how the colors looked, and the episodes that featured that pair. I hope this makes sense. ;)

Steps of Knowledge Ratings:

Combination:Average:
:jaguars2: :barracudas2: :monkeys2: :iguanas2: 7.14
:jaguars2: :barracudas2: :monkeys2: :parrots2: 8.90
:jaguars2: :barracudas2: :monkeys2: :snakes2: 6.00
:jaguars2: :barracudas2: :iguanas2: :parrots2: 7.90
:jaguars2: :barracudas2: :iguanas2: :snakes2: 2.85
:jaguars2: :barracudas2: :parrots2: :snakes2: 5.83
:jaguars2: :monkeys2: :iguanas2: :parrots2: 4.00
:jaguars2: :monkeys2: :iguanas2: :snakes2: 6.00
:jaguars2: :monkeys2: :parrots2: :snakes2: 6.67
:jaguars2: :iguanas2: :parrots2: :snakes2: 2.57
:barracudas2: :monkeys2: :iguanas2: :parrots2: 6.60
:barracudas2: :monkeys2: :iguanas2: :snakes2: 6.60
:barracudas2: :monkeys2: :parrots2: :snakes2: 7.33
:barracudas2: :iguanas2: :parrots2: :snakes2: 7.60
:monkeys2: :iguanas2: :parrots2: :snakes2: 5.60

Temple Games Ratings:

Combination:Average:
:jaguars2: vs. :barracudas2: 7.40
:jaguars2: vs. :monkeys2: 8.00
:jaguars2: vs. :iguanas2: 6.00
:jaguars2: vs. :parrots2: 4.00
:jaguars2: vs. :snakes2: 3.40
:barracudas2: vs. :monkeys2: 6.80
:barracudas2: vs. :iguanas2: 7.20
:barracudas2: vs. :parrots2: 8.40
:barracudas2: vs. :snakes2: 6.40
:monkeys2: vs. :iguanas2: 4.60
:monkeys2: vs. :parrots2: 7.80
:monkeys2: vs. :snakes2: 7.25
:iguanas2: vs. :parrots2: 4.00
:iguanas2: vs. :snakes2: 3.25
:parrots2: vs. :snakes2: 6.50

So without further ado, let's start with the Steps of Knowledge combinations Red-Blue-Green-Orange. :mrred: :mrblue: :mrgreen: :mrorange:

 :jaguars2: :barracudas2: :monkeys2: :iguanas2:

Episodes it was featured in: (Used in 8 episodes)
The Helmet of Joan of Arc
The Jeweled Necklace of Montezuma
The Lost Love Letter of Captain John Smith

The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
The Pearl Necklace of Gwalior

The Comet-Embroidered Battle Flag of William the Conqueror

My vote and reasoning will come in the next post. ;)

I gave this match up an 8. I happen to like these colors together, they looked really nice. For some reason, I always think of a rainbow or the toucan on the Fruit Loops box whenever I think of this pair. :lol: And besides Bifocal Monocle, none of the episodes that featured this combination was bad at all. Most of those episodes were average, but not bad in any way.

And yes, I am going in order of Purple/Silver not making it out of the moat, Orange/Silver not making it out of the moat, etc. So Red-Blue-Green-Purple will come tomorrow. In case you were wondering on the order I was gonna set it up in. ;)

I went with an 8 because I love the way these colors go together but none of the episodes featured were any of my absolute favorites. I almost gave these a 7, but they really are a nice looking combo, and it was sort of rare for the leftmost or rightmost four teams to make it beyond the moat.

Yeah, none of these episodes were spectacular in any way. Out of that list, the only failed escape they had was Battle Flag. Which coincidentally is the only Green Monkey run on the above list. But I really liked how those colors looked together, which is why I ranked it as high as I did. ;)

I gave this combination a 7 also. I like the color pairing with this combo, especially considering this was the order that Kirk introduced the teams in. :P Plus, I always thought that Red and Blue looked nice together. I am not a big fan of the episode selection though as most of those episodes were pretty average. The only episode I actually like is William the Conqueror. And the only one I hate is Bifocal Monocle. Coincidentally, both were on the same day. :lol: The one thing I like about this pairing though is the equal representation for all of the teams. No team really dominates this combination. If only it had a better episode selection, I would give it a higher score.  ;)

That makes total sense so no argument here.

The reason I went as high as I did was because for me 8 is going to be sort of the middle ground. I'm not going to be dishing out anything lower than a 6, and 10s will be reserved for combinations that produced all time legendary episodes.

My high scores would come from how really nice the colors looked, especially ones with Blue, Green, and Purple together. And like Brent said, the episodes that featured said match up plays a factor in my voting too. But I also agree with TRJ that if these selection of episodes were better, I would've ranked this A LOT higher. ;)

Also, this poll has 6 votes so far. :o And it's not all unanimous, which is definitely not a bad thing.

I can't wait until we get to the Red-Blue-Orange-Purple steps that featured episodes such as Atocha, Annie Taylor, Catherine the Great, and Atahualpa. That will probably be one of the highest ranking ones. ;)

Oh yeah, every episode except Belshazzar featured some of the very best episodes ever. And even Belshazzar wasn't so bad. Just average compared the rest of the episodes. Too bad it was a rare match up, and I did like that pair. ;) The colors could've looked a little better though. But with all the episodes it was featured in, I'll let it slide. :mrred: :mrblue: :mrorange: :mrpurple:

I love red, blue, orange, and purple together anyway, so that's definitely going to rank super high!!

I'm gonna give this one a 7 because the colors looked really nice and tropical, but the episodes are pretty unremarkable.

Yeah, tropical was exactly what I was thinking when looking at these colors. Like I said in my reasoning, I always think of the toucan on the Fruit Loops box whenever I think of these colors. :lol: Too bad none of these episodes were remarkable, besides Battle Flag.

And they are also complimentary colors, red with green and blue with orange, which is a big part of why they look so good together.

And with 7 votes, and a 7.14 average, time to end the poll for Red-Blue-Green-Orange. :mrred: :mrblue: :mrgreen: :mrorange: I had a feeling this poll would catch on more than the moat topic did. :lol:

Up next is Red-Blue-Green-Purple. :mrred: :mrblue: :mrgreen: :mrpurple:

I gave this match up a 9. This was by far was favorite combination on the whole show. All four colors looked beautiful together, especially when the combination happened in the latter two seasons. I would've given this pair a perfect 10, but I took off a point because besides Good Luck Watch and Lost Hornpipe, most of these episodes were average to just plain bad. And like with Red-Blue-Green-Orange, none of the four teams really dominate this match up either, which is good. Either way, I love this pair, and these colors go excellently together. ;)
