Nzinga is both bad and forgettable, so maybe it's a good thing we don't remember it as much. We've blocked it from our memories. :oops:

And great, can't wait for the Blue Barracudas poll. :mrblue: Though don't you have three more runs to cover in this thread? Days 18, 19, and 20?

I haven't updated the main post for a long time, so I think I am going to do that now. :lol: But you're right, I am missing one. I am thinking the last one is Royal Torque? I don't think we covered that one yet either. ;)

Yeah, I don't think we ever covered Royal Torque. So maybe that could be the one you save for best for last. The last three runs could go:

Genghis Khan - Blackbeard - Royal Torque

You can also do what I did for the Purple Parrots thread. Save a bad one for second to last, and then an amazing one for the last. And in this case, it would be Blackbeard, then Royal Torque. Just like it was Lost Lion Tail, then Freydis for me. It's up to you though. ;)

You had the exact same idea I had. :lol: I was going to save Queen Boadicea for last too since it was the best of the three. Next will be Genghis Khan because it would be bad to have two awful runs back-to-back (Nzinga and Blackbeard). ;)

I am going to used that order (Khan - Blackbeard - Boadicea)

Or you could save Genghis Khan for last since it was a win after all. But I like your order better. ;) And good call holding off on Blackbeard too. :oops:

I gave Genghis Khan a 7. This win was average like most Season 1 wins, but it is nostalgic to me. This is one of the very few runs I have taped from the original Nickelodeon days. Plus, this is easily the best Red Jaguars run from the first season. Becca and Taylor's win was easy, but I have nothing good or bad to say about it. The ending is pretty funny though. :P

I gave it a 6. This temple run is nothing special to me, and the win was just plain average. Becca and Taylor were nothing to write home about. Though I suppose it's better than Shaka Zulu.

Re: Rate the Red Jaguars Run - Day 19: Blackbeard's Treasure Map

I gave Blackbeard a 1. One of the worst losses ever on the show, and it was all thanks to a horrible looking man named Sabrina. :roll: I ragged about Kristen from "Amelia Earhart" in the Blue Barracuda topic wasting 3 minutes in the temple sucking. Well, Sabrina did the same thing but made like half the progress of Kristen's run. Seriously, Sabrina only entered FIVE rooms in 3 minutes. And the Wheel Room not working is totally her fault. Probably the worst temple run ever on the show, after Golden Cricket Cage of course. :roll: I like how she literally gives up in the end instead of trying to move forward. It is only fitting for a lost cause like her. -__-

Let's move on now. We know that Blackbeard is never going to get a score higher than a 1. And it finishes with that score too.  :oops:

Our final run is "The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea".

Artifact Location: Tomb of the Headless Kings
Players: Lissy and Nate
Pendants: 2

I gave Queen Boadicea a 9!  :mrred: This was one of the best Red Jaguar runs on the show. Lissy and Nate were a strong and fast team that almost brought out a bottom of the central shaft artifact. Should this run been a win? Sure, but they didn't do much wrong in the temple. Lissy should've moved a little faster in the beginning. Other than that, this run was very exciting and one of the best for Red Jaguars. I say that Catherine the Great is the only better run.  :mrred:
