Why shouldn't the Treasure Room be so well received? It's such an "awesome room." :mrred: :afro:

But yeah, the Jester's Court is definitely gonna rank high. It's my second favorite room next to the Shrine. :mrorange:

I was gonna do an 8 but decided to go with a 7 instead. Good, good room. Just not on par with the best, best, best rooms on the show.
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

And with a non solid 7 average, time to end the second to last poll for The Treasury of the Golden Orbs.

Up next is the final poll, The Jester's Court. ;)

Day 43 - Jester's Court
Objective: Press yourself against the correct wall painting, and proceed to the next room.
Season(s): 2, 3

I gave this room a 9. This is my second favorite room next to the Shrine. I loved the objective, the concept of aligning your body with the paintings on the walls, and even how the wallpaper in the room looked. I personally liked Season 2's version a little better, with the ladder and the laugh once the objective was completed. And you gotta love how the room literally glows in the dark as soon as you're done with the objective. This was definitely one of the more challenging rooms, and easily the best room in that room space. I honestly think they should've come up with this room sooner in Season 2. It certainly beats the Swamp by a long shot. Great room, we definitely saved the best for last here! :mrred:

I gave the Jester's Court a 9! This was one of the staple rooms on the show next to the Shrine, Dark Forest, and King's Storeroom. It had one of the most unique objectives on the show and the design for the Jesters on the wall was top notch. It was definitely a step up from the previous rooms too (although I still love you Bamboo Forest ;) ). I like how the contestants had different positions to align themselves with, even though it felt like the middle painting was the correct one most of the time. :P I would give it a perfect 10 except for two minor complaints: First off, they shoud've kept the ladders leading up in Season 3. Secondly, they should've kept the laugh in Season 3 too. That laugh was perfectly fitting. :lol: Overall, this was one of the best and most creative rooms on the show. :mrorange:

Quoted for truth. :mrorange:

But yeah, the Jester's Court was a solid room. I'm glad to end this thread with that room. Now tomorrow I'll have to set up a huge chart. Which I should've done sooner. :lol: But hey, this was a fun ride, wasn't it? ;)

Up next is a comparison chart of how the rankings changed from the first thread to now. This chart is gonna take a while to make, so bare with me. ;)

And here it is, the comparison chart from the first thread to this thread:

Observatory - Celestial Lights4.254.25
Wall Climb2.503.25
Treasury of the Golden Orbs6.337.00
Jester's Court8.809.00

So there were some small changes this time around, most of them nothing too big. The biggest leap was the Cave of Sighs, Rock Quarry, Pit of Despair (Rope Swing), and King's Storeroom. There were only two rooms that had averages stay exactly the same, being the Treacherous Holes of Python and Observatory - Celestial Lights. And the first Crypt and Quicksand Bog/Pharaoh's Secret Passage scores are no typo, in case you're wondering. They literally had the exact average of 6.17. :lol: Other than that, this whole chart can pretty much do all the talking.

And thank you guys for participating in this. I hope you guys had as much fun voting in this thread as I did. Even if it was just a rehash topic. Any special thanks for me and final thoughts can go in here. ;)

Thanks for the update.  :mrpurple:

No surprise to see most of the new scores be the same as the old scores. For the most part, it looks like most of the scores increased between the original version and this version of the thread. I am shocked that the Crypt had such a low score the first time. It was a memorable and beautifully designed room even if the objective was simple. I was also shocked to see the Chamber ranked pretty low the first time around too. I like the new scores better and believe that they are more agreeable. I just wish the Dark Forest ranked higher. A 7.50 is too low IMO.

And once again, thanks for recreating this topic Paintbrush. It was fun revisiting these rooms again and gave us something to talk about too. Maybe down the road we can revisit another old rating topic too. ;)  :mrpurple:

You're welcome. :mrpurple:

And yeah, I'm surprised the likes of the Crypt and the Chamber scored as low as they did. They were both great and challenging rooms. And the Crypt is hands down THE best entry room on the whole show. I also agree with the scores in this thread than in the other thread. It's a lot more accurate, and the scores are more fitting. And yeah, I would also like to revisit another old topic somewhere down the road. I was actually gonna revive the "Rate the Purple Parrot" run thread. We didn't get very far, and we'd only cover 11 episodes. So it wouldn't take too long. I was gonna wait to revive that topic, but I might actually go through with it since it would be short and easy to go through. ;) :mrpurple:

This was a fun topic!

Interesting to see which rooms got better scores and which got lower. Gad the Kings Storeroom got a lot of love this time.

All in all, I'd say it's pretty solid and I agree with it all for the most part!

Thanks PPF!

And just for reference, Here's the Purple Parrot topic. We made it to Day 4 out of a possible 11. That just means 7 more "days" to cover. Which definitely shouldn't take long, even if I skipped a day of updating the poll. Is anyone up for that? If not, then I'll just leave the thread alone. ;)

And yes I removed the poll. Now that voting has ended, I felt like we didn't need the poll to still be standing. :P

I was actually going to do a rating topic for every team separately. I think it is a good idea to continue where we left off. And it might not be a bad idea either to start the thread over again. This way so people that haven't voted before for the earlier runs can get a chance to do so. ;)  :mrpurple:

Yeah, I was thinking of starting the whole thread over too. Since the poll in the above thread only has like, three votes to it. Plus, it's a little too outdated, being almost a year old. So with that in mind, I'll start the new Purple Parrot thread tonight. ;) :mrpurple:
