Good job puddin as usual and everyone!  :tup:

Hehe, even though 6/15 is decent number of questions to answer correctly, I am definitely aiming for at least getting half of the number of questions to get correct next time.

Watch out leaderboard huggers!!! Im coming!!!  :knuckles:

Anyway, I have to ask a clarification of what is U-turn and speed bumps? Is it related to the race instructions?

Thanks in advance.

The U-turn and speed bump are new. We do have an explanation somewhere in the spoilers and speculation threads.

Everything we have written about speedbumps/U-turns is sadly just informed speculation as CBS/WRP in their wisdom has not yet given us the OFFICIAL explanations.  (:;)

 Sounds like that will change this week! :happy:

Ic Ic, thanks for the explanation, next week's clue about a "new winkle" must surely be it...

Anyway I checked up on amazing race wikipedia about U turn and it said:

U-TURN
A new rule added on Season 12. This is where a Team(or Teams) must complete both Detour tasks.
 
Is it right?

Well--that is what we all believe--but I am unaware of any OFFICIAL explanation having been put out there yet. We also think that this MAY replace the Yield (thank goodness--I hated the Yield but I despised the Intersection!)

I see, this must be even worst than yield and it surely takes up more time...

Hmm you guys may be right that the yield and intersection might be replaced cause on the official website, both yield and intersection are not listed in the glossary...(yeah if intersection is to continue, they might have to update it cause you dont want to have a team wait 3 hours plus for the next team just like D/K in all-stars which was pretty pathetic.)

Sorry if its off-topic again, but may I know what is speed bumps too? Hehe, I can't find anything yet...

Okay--we have totally hijacked this thread and just made more work for puddin because now this whole conversation will prob have to be moved OVER HERE to Possible Changes in the Race--so sorry puddin! :(

But we don't yet know about the Speed Bump--we are guessing a slow down another team move--but guess we'll have to wait and see? Someone also speculated that maybe it would be something to make BOTH team members do the Roadblock--but really, it is all a guess!

This might take awhile -- any input?

TAR12 Week 3 Ends Nov 18th @7:55 pm ET


15 points - How much money do the teams receive at the beginning of the race?
51-100


10 points - What form of transportation will the teams not use?
Bikes
Camels
more than one of the above  :tup:



8 points - Will there be more than three *equalizer points during the episode? *all teams seen together at the same time in one place
No?
plane
overnight in Ouaga
all in the train to Bingo




Actually, I think that there were four[/b points.  In addition to the above, the teams were all seen together at the ROADBLOCK as the camels were being milked.

but puddin said that an equalizer is something that is race controlled, like times or flights etc

Look again, and you'll see all of the non-milkers there together watching the milkers.  So all the teams are bunched up together.
