It sure dosen't sound like "Zivov" according to Olmec though...


Those are definitely V's.

The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl!  Losses are exciting too.  Sometimes.

How are "John Henry's Lost Hammer" and "The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata" counted there? Just curious.


John Henry:  Since Green was disqualified, their time doesn't count.  The order for that episode was Silver - Orange - Red - Purple.

Zapata:  Since Silver would have gotten 3rd place, I counted it as such: Green - Purple - Silver - Red.

I will try once more.  Do I still lose?


If I am right with my hunch of what the rules are, then no.  You just won.

I just spent WEEKS figuring this out, Ed.  lol

Let me know where you feel I erred.

EDIT - I accidentally counted the Eugenie episode twice for some reason.  Everything's right now.

The quick brown fox jumped o'er a dog that was sloth in ways.

This game is dumb and has caused me to stay up late.  More than I would have liked to.

I feel I know how to win this though.  If I do not win at this point, then I do not know what to do.  Yet, I feel I am quite right.

...it's "Bin Zivov".  Zivov is a Hebrew last name (so is Ze-ev, but that second V is definitely there".  And Bin does mean "son of", but I don't believe it's hyphenated.  "Bin Laden" isn't.

Also interesting: the last item in Temple Game #3 during The Melted Head NEVER HITS the basket of the Orange Iguanas.  It should have been a 3-3 tie, forcing a tiebreaker...

EDIT - And hey, we hate on Damien, but he's in the same boat as Chrystine:  eleven-second assembly, but...

NEW SILVER MONKEY PROBLEM:

The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb.

I mean, technically, it only takes nine seconds for Chrystine to assemble the monkey from when she touches the first piece, but... does it count?
