Re: Rate the Legends Room - Day 17: Room of the Royal Gongs

I can't believe I forgot about the Bamboo Forest. That was a great room, and THAT only manages to last only one layout. I definitely prefer it over the Spider's Lair and the Swamp. And basically all the rooms you said above, especially the Tomb of the Ancient Kings, were the only Season 1 rooms I liked. I always liked the blue/pink/gold that room had going for it. I know it was too bright, but I definitely preferred it over the Royal Gong room.

I gave the Royal Gongs a 4. Basically a glorified "hit an actuator" room. Just with bigger actuators.
Top 10 episodes:
1. Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2. Lion Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3. Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
4. Milk Bucket of Freydis
5. Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
6. Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
7. Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
8. John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Goldmine
9. Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress
10. Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible

I gave this room a 5. It was a neat looking room, and a sundial is cool I guess. But the only objective the room had was well.... spin a sundial. That's it. There was no challenge, just spin the thing and move on. The other Observatory variations were better.

I have it a 6. It was Season 1. Really good concept. And I would have ranked it higher but sometimes the doors didn't open quickly enough.

I gave the Sundial a 3. It was a lame and uninspiring room. I hardly even consider it an objective because all the players had to do was twirl some silly dial. I guess it is better than pushing actuators, but the room was still way too easy and lame. This room is a big letdown because the producers could've turned it into an actual puzzle. Instead, all they had to do was a half-assed spin that would open the doors. It was better than some of the Season 1 rooms, but it was still lame.  :roll:

Yeah, the producers could've turned it into a puzzle instead of some sundial. Or better yet: Utilize the celestial lights sooner.

I gave this room a 5. While it was better than just some empty "hit the actuator room," it looked too cluttered and hard to navigate. It was basically a "hit the actuator room" with a bunch of obnoxious columns in the way. Plus, this room didn't last long anyways.

I gave the Fallen Columns a 4. I like the effort to try and upgrade the Heart Room, but it was too little too late by the time they brought this room around. I mean the room only lasted for four episodes. Plus, the columns definitely made the room too cluttered too. Even the temple guards had a hard time getting around in this room. And I think the name of the room was pretty name. But still, I appreciate the effort of the producers of trying to make the Heart Room a little harder. But this room was just forgettable and lame.

*Pretty lame, not pretty name. The name of this room was kind of dumb. :P

I would've liked this room a little better if they brought it in say...S1L6 or something like that. But instead, it was just one of the many short-lived Season 1 rooms. I know the Bamboo Forest was short-lived too, but the room design was clever and the name was perfect. The Fallen Columns was just some foam columns thrown inside a room. :roll:

Yeah, if they had introduced it sooner, or even used less columns, then maybe I'd like the room better. The Bamboo Forest was executed better, for all the same reasons you stated.

I've been thinking of reordering which rooms we should cover next. Like, go from "best to worst," ranking all the best remaining rooms at the end. What do you guys think? And which rooms do you think I should save for the end of this thread? ;)
