I gave it a 6. I just don't think highly of this run, at all. Truth be told, it really bores me. Good effort by the team, but I don't like it at all. I don't care how hard the layout was, it was completely forgettable and boring in each and every single aspect. This is not anywhere close to the best Red Jaguars run. It's extremely overrated and I just don't get the hype. =/

Boadicea finishes with a 7.60. I counted Brent's vote as a 7 even though he didn't change it in the poll.  ;)

In the next post, I will post the overall rankings for each run. :mrred:

Here are the final rankings:

"The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great": 9.60
"The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea": 7.60
"The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon": 7.50

"The Ivory Hunting Horn of Roland": 7.00
"The Helmet of Genghis Khan": 6.33
"The Jeweled Necklace of Montezuma: 5.75
"The Golden Cup of Belshazzar": 5.75
"The Helmet of Joan of Arc": 5.50
"The Stone Marker of Leif Erickson": 5.00
"The Mask of Shaka Zulu": 4.75
"The Treasure of Anne Bonny": 4.40
"The Lost Love Letter of Captain John Smith": 4.25
"Elizabeth I's Golden Ship": 4.00
"The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun": 3.75
"The Silver Saddle Horn of Hannibal": 3.67
"The Missing Weather Maps of Charles Lindbergh": 2.40
"The Crown of Queen Nzinga": 2.25
"The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass": 2.20
"The Keys to the Alhambra": 1.00
"Blackbeard's Treasure Map": 1.00


My thoughts:
Wow, a lot of these runs ranked very low. :o The only run that scored higher than an 8 is "Catherne the Great". Most of them ranked lower than a 6. No surprise I guess because most of their runs were truly weak or just average. There were a lot of disappointing clunkers on there too like Printing Plate, Charles Lindbergh, and Anne Bonny. I am truly embarassed by the scores for the most part. :oops:

Yeah, I'm embarrassed too. :oops: I guess the Red Jaguars aren't as great as they are cracked up to be, best win ever be damned. :mrred:

Yeah, you know your team is bad when 2 out of the top 3 best runs were losses.  :afro: But Shaka Zulu saves this team and I am so grateful for its presence.  :afro:  :mrred: Just kidding, the only runs that I care about are Catherine the Great, Genghis Khan, Roland, Two-Cornered Hat, and Queen Boadicea. ;)

So that is it for the Purple Parrots and Green Monkeys. I should be done with Blue in no time. The only other team I want to cover is the Green Monkeys. They have a lot of good runs to cover.  :mrgreen:

How can it be "it" for the Green Monkeys when you just admitted you wanted to start it? ;)

You can have that one, and all the rest of the individual team ones. I was thinking of rehashing the "Rate the Failed Escape" poll. The last one was a little sloppily ran, and didn't have many voters. And I was thinking of restarting it for the newer members here, just like all the other polls. :mrpurple:

Yeah, the failed escape one definitely should get a reboot. That one had like 3 different people create the polls. ;) And I am sure opinions have changed for that one too. ;)

Yeah, one person started it and then gave up on it. And then multiple topics of the same thing were started, and I had to merge everything, and then take over. It will definitely be easier if I'm the one starting it. Plus, the topic is over a year old anyways. And a lot of the failed escape runs were pretty good too. So it will definitely be an interesting poll to revisit. ;)

As for this topic, the only Red Jaguar episodes I like are Catherine the Great, Montezuma, Napoleon, and maybe Roland. The rest were either average or sucked. Oh well, 3/4 of the Season 3 Red Jaguar episodes ranked high, so there's that. :mrred:
