BTW I gave the room a 2 to make PPF do math.
Fuck You. :roll:

Kidding of course. :P And yeah, the Treasure Room could've been so much more. I would've had more respect for the room if, oh I don't know.... ACTUALLY WORKED most of the damn time. :roll:

EDIT: To change "kissing" to "kidding." :lol:

You meant to type kissing for the Treasure Room, didn't you? :P j/k

But yeah, I might've rated it higher if it was actually worked more than one time. It is also frustrating to watch runs like Belshazzar, Zenobia, and Silver Saddle Horn where the chest should've actually worked in those runs. I have to say this is the WORST room on the show. I mean at least the Heart Room had the cool wallpaper and wasn't pretending to be anything special. The Treasure Room only served its purpose once. -_-

I love this room. I gave it a 9. This was one of my favorites once the teams actually were required to complete it.

I gave this room a 7. It's by far my favorite room in that room space, and I liked the aspect of literally shouting a password for a door to open up. I would've rated it higher if the room had been entered into more and if the objective was completed more. I mean, it was literally only completed once in Season 2. Fortunately, we saw this room get completed a lot more in Season 3. Plus, it would've helped if a player was required to complete the room before moving on to the Mine Shaft. Which seemed to be a more recurring theme going with that room space, no matter what room it was. Thankfully that aspect was added in by Season 3. But I did like the objective, and the three passwords that needed to be shouted out too. ;)

Oh, and here are the passwords for reference:
"Long Live Olmec!"
"Open Sesame!"
"Klata Barada Nikkitu!"

I gave the Room of the Secret Password an 8. This was a memorable and very creative room. I like how the contestants were actually forced to do talking in order to complete a room objective. It was definitely an original idea. And it was always funny when they couldn't pronounce the room names either. :lol: And I like how they made this room mandatory to complete in Season 3 instead of bypassing it to ride an elevator below. The downside to this room was that it was hardly entered at all. Even in Season 3, it still wasn't completed much at all. But that's not really the rooms fault either. It was located in a room space where a player should avoid most of the time unless they were forced to enter. It was one of the better and more creative rooms on the show at the end of the day.

I would've liked this room A LOT more if it were completed more often, and it you were required to complete it coming from the Shrine. I did however like some of the players' mispronunciation of the password names. Like the "Msincbfvbcdcbfry!" bit we heard from Kelli in Thornwood Gavel. And the "Klatu Barada Nikki!" bit we heard from Matthew in Belle Boyd. And Kirk's complete and utter butchering of the room name in the Annie Oakley temple run. I guess he never expected a contestant to ever complete that room. :lol:

The mispronunciations were one of the highlights of the room for sure lol.

I gave this room a 5. It was better than the Room of the Three Gargoyles, but it was basically the same objective. Hit the actuator, and move on. It worked the exact same way. Not the greatest room, and nothing really stood out. It was just "there." I didn't hate the room, but I didn't like it either.

I gave the Room of the Royal Gongs a 3. In my opinion, this room was just a blatant rip-off of the Three Gargoyles. I actually liked the Gargoyles and can't see the reasoning why they would change them. I guess they only wanted to switch up the temple a little bit? The Royal Gongs appeared in only 2 layouts and were just the same thing as the Gargoyles minus the tongues. The Gargoyles were more cooler and memorable than this room. It is not the worst room, but this is one of those rooms that should've never happened.

I personally thought the Gargoyles Room was boring. I guess they just worked better as temple scenery than they did a room objective. Same with the Golden Idols, another pointless room.

And truth be told, I don't like any of the next rooms coming up. Were there any good rooms at all after Season 1?

These are the only rooms I like from Season 1:

- Shrine (Obvious choice because it was the best room on the show!)
- Tomb of the Ancient Kings (It was a neat room that had a lot of memorable guards and had an actual objective. Not as good as the Dark Forest, but it still served its purpose)
- Bamboo Forest (this room definitely deserved more air time. I love this room)
- Treasury of the Golden Orbs (Should've replaced the stupid Treasure Room sooner)

I could care less about the rest of the rooms in Season 1. Some of them felt like they were carbon copies of old rooms. Like the Mine Shaft and Well, Swamp and Spider's Lair, Three Gargoyles and Royal Gongs, Sundial and Celestial Lights, etc.
