« on: January 04, 2013, 04:14:46 PM »

Over at Reality Fan Forum's Fantasy Games section, there is a game that aims to produce feasible, entertaining, and quality Amazing Race legs. It is called "TAR Design Challenge"

For its third season's grand finale, we have decided to put up the finalists' TAR Leg Designs inside here at the guest-viewer friendly TAR Discussion Board. This is their avenue to impress a larger audience -- and by extension, may attract the lurking World Race Production team.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the cascade of outstanding TAR designs!

Mirna: Hello, all! It is I, Mirna (Paldog), Flo (racer), and Phil (Cocoa), the three hosts of this season of TAR: Design Challenge. It is time for the final design show of the season!

3 designers have fought long and hard for a chance to be here. The finalists are:

addie!

supah3ro!

and calphin!

They were challenged with designing an entire route for one season of the Amazing Race. Within their routes, they had to include a judge's choice leg (a leg that a judge wanted a contestant to redo from earlier in the season), a leg in Antarctica, and ALL 7 continents. Did the designers comply to the guidelines and make stellar routes? Let's find out! It's time to view the designs! First, we will begin with addie.

Good morning teams.
The first team to cross the finish line will win the Amazing Race and $1million.
And just as the recent season, the stakes are high.
The first team to arrive at the first PitStop, if they will come first again at the Finish Line, they will receive a total of $2million.

The world is waiting for you, but your first clue will be waiting at the tables right back of me.
If I give you the word, you can each go to one table, and give me a proof of your completed task, then I will give you a place in 2 predetermined flights.
Are you ready?
Good luck.
Travel safe.
...GO!!!

Starting Line Task :

Teams will play a classic mind game of "Tower of Hanoi", but in this case, the tower is shaped like a Mayan pyramid, or it's called a Tikal.

What makes it harder is : team members have to take turns in moving the levels. Once the first member is done taking the level and touch a pole already, he/she cannot move it to the other pole. Each turn will take a max of 1 minute. If passed, a judge for each table will reset the tikal and teams have to start again. If teams have done it correctly, teams may bring the tikal with the leftmost pole to Phil to receive the plane tickets.

Rules & Video :

http://www.jukskei.co.za
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0T0AkOVlswo


Basic Rules (from wiki) :
The object of the game is to knock over a peg that is planted in a sandpit over a distance of between 11 and 16 m (depending on age and gender). It is played in teams with usually four members each. Each member has two skeis (and thus two turns). The playing field consists of two pits juxtaposed in opposite directions, so that play can take place in both directions. Each time a team member knocks over the peg, he gets three points. If the peg wasn’t knocked out, the team lying closest to the position of the peg, scores as many points as they have skeis closer to the peg than their opponent's closest skei. The first team to get exactly 23 points first wins the game. If the team gets more than 23 points, they start from 0.

JSYK if you haven't followed the game on the Fantasy Games area, the original plan for the season was to have rounds in every continent and to feature all the continents throughout the game, which is why the season culminates in a seven-continent race. :tup:

(And on a personal note, I love 5+ continent races. I don't consider The Amazing Race to be a "race around the world" unless they hit an absolute minimum of four continents, preferably more. But that's just my view.)



FLO: Hello designers! Nice to see you all here on the Red Carpet back in the United States. (They finally got me my flight to JFK after all these years of begging... :res:) All of you definitely deserve to be here in the Final Three for various reasons, as you have all come up with some truly breathtaking legs and some memorable challenges.

FLO: I have looked through all the designs briefly, but tomorrow I will go over them with a fine tooth comb and hopefully come up with my decision. I wish you all the best of luck but only one will win and two will be thrown in the dungeons of mediocrity (with me :lol:). That is all.

She has an appearance resemblance to Linda from TAR5. :) I wonder if they are related in some way.

On to the polling, I really like addie's route as the prizes were hilarious. Route was pretty cool. Supah's Bolivia and Peru legs were awesome, I loved the traditional Bolivian festival game inclusion. Calphin gets bonus points from me for including Chicago in the final leg. :lol: Antarctica leg was awesome! I don't know who to vote for. ???

I will do my best to get my scores in ASAP. Currently, I have judged all three routes as a whole, but I will still need to judge the redo legs, the Antarctica legs and the finale legs.

My goal is to send my scores in 24 hours from now. :)

Sorry guys, my Internet was out for 12+ hours today and I was unable to get anything done, but I will work on it tomorrow. :tup:

My apologies if the revealing of the winner and the scores is delayed because of me, but I am trying to be thorough with my marking and my Internet problems were really unexpected. :(

I am hoping to have my scores in within 24 hours (hopefully 36-48 at most) so assuming the other judges are also done, then I'm sure Paldog will reveal the results accordingly! :) I know you can't wait from personal experience! :lol:

My scores are submitted! :hoot: :hoot:

My scores aren't exactly close in some of the categories (for obvious reasons :res:) but I still believe that all three designs have certain aspects of them which make them deserving of taking home the crown. For example, one designer had the best overall route but had probably the weakest final leg, while another designer had several legs which did not impress me but had the best memory challenge of the lot. ;)

So whoever wins, I agree with the outcome. That's all from me! Good luck! :hoot:

Mirna: Hello, all! It is I, Mirna (Paldog), Flo (racer), and Phil (Cocoa), the three hosts of this season of TAR: Design Challenge. It is time for the final results show of the season!

3 designers have fought long and hard for a chance to be here. The finalists are:

addie!

supah3ro!

and calphin!

They were challenged with designing an entire route for one season of the Amazing Race. Within their routes, they had to include a judge's choice leg (a leg that a judge wanted a contestant to redo from earlier in the season), a leg in Antarctica, and ALL 7 continents.

After taking some time to review the designs, we have scored them. The designers' total scores for the round will be broken down as follows:

Quote
25% - Poll
15% - Judge Mirna's Overall Route Score
15% - Judge Flo's Overall Route Score
15% - Judge Phil' Overall Route Score
10% - Redo Leg
10% - Antarctica Leg
10% - Final Leg
_____
100%

+ (possible) 3% for Holiday-Themed Leg

So let the results show begin!

And, last but not least, Judge Flo's scores (and comments)!

Show content
Hello designers! I am judging you out of 100 total for your overall route. This will include a score out of FIVE for each of your twelve legs individually, adding up to a total 60 points. After that, I will consider a variety of other factors such as the feasibility, cohesion and feel of your overall route when strung together as a whole. So let's get to the fun!

INDIVIDUAL LEG SCORES:

Show content
addie

Show content
Leg 1: This leg is absolutely flawless and a perfect start to the race. Five points without a fraction of a doubt.

Leg 2: It's an almost flawless leg with one of the best Detours imaginable, which helps your score. I can't give full marks to the Roadblock though, although it is a decent task, but you get four points nonetheless.

Leg 3: I absolutely LOVE the vuvuzela orchestra! And I also love the Roadblock, especially Brooke deciding not to complete it! :P Fast Forward is decent and relevant. The other Detour option is not as good, but it just does enough to secure you five points for this leg.

Leg 4: Both your Fast Forward and Roadblock are very good and well designed! I dislike the Detour though. Catching crabs is not dissimilar to other TAR challenges done in the past (e.g. TAR12 finale) and the fish trap – while it is slightly better – would not be very fun to watch on television for the viewers. This is definitely the weakest leg so far so I give it three points.

Leg 5: I think this Roadblock is the best challenge in the history of the TAR: DC franchise (although I do like my skivodka :P) in my opinion. The Detour is culturally relevant and will be interesting to see the teams struggling, but it might not be the most exciting challenge to watch on TV, especially the 'Two Skates' option. I really, really, really, really, really hate U-Turns positioned directly before a Pit Stop with a passion, but in light of the sheer awesomeness of the Roadblock, I think the Roadblock counteracts the poor U-Turn positioning, so I will settle on a score of four

Leg 6: I would normally seriously hate a cheesy Christmas-themed leg, BUT since you were instructed to design such a leg, I obviously won't penalise you for it! :) I like the Speed Bump – there could be some funny letters that Brooke & Hope read in there :P and compared to most Speed Bumps on the real TAR, this is a big success. I like the 'Reindeer Racing' task and it would definitely be entertaining, but I'm not 100% convinced by the other option, even though it has the potential to do well as a luck-based challenge. EXTREMELY good U-Turn positioning – so much better than the previous leg. The Roadblock is absolutely phenomenal! Almost as good as the previous leg's Roadblock and that is saying something! While I'm not fond of the Christmas theme, it's a big five points from me!

Leg 7: The Speed Bump is not as good as the previous leg, but it is not bad either. The Roadblock is easily the best task on the leg (yet again!) while the Detour is a good Detour but not a great Detour. I think that the leg is good but not perfect – I'm leaning between a three and a four on this one... but it is a four from me... barely.

Leg 8: I absolutely hate India + China legs, so it is almost impossible for me to give this leg five points, unless it is truly flawless. Let's see what you've got... the Speed Bump is not bad at all and I would love to see Brooke & Hope do that. :P The Roadblock sounds kinda interesting, but if teams can see the leaf, then it might actually be an extremely simple task so I'm not convinced by this Roadblock. I also dislike the Detour – the concept of 'Fruit Ninja' is nice, but I feel that the Detour is not well-balanced and also the other Detour option is rather boring for viewers. India legs are a high-risk, low-reward type of situation when it comes to my tastes, and sadly this leg doesn't work for me. Two points is the most I can give you – I would recommend making the Roadblock harder, changing the Detour completely and adding in a Route Info task in beautiful Venice prior to making them fly to India.

Leg 9: Another unconvincing Detour for me – I think the person would be able to feel a difference in the massage and I don't think that task works at all unfortunately. I do like the other Detour option however, and I think some bickering would be fun at this challenge. (Cue me and Zach or Brenchel please. :P) The Roadblock is a little simple, but I love that you have made the most of a local landmark, and that impresses me a lot! Once again I am leaning between a three and a four, but this time I have to settle on three unfortunately. :(

Leg 10: I just loved reading the words “take a picture with a Kodak EasyShare Digital Camera” - reminds me of good old classic TAR! :P Meanwhile, I think your Roadblock is great – it will cause a lot of confusion, it will be quite tricky and it could really separate the crowd. In terms of your Detour, I like both tasks but I don't really love either task. Australia is an EXTREMELY boring place (and that's coming from an Australian :lol:) so in terms of a leg in Australia, you have actually done a pretty decent job and you get four points.

Leg 11: I do love my South Pacific! ;) OK, so your fire task is out of this world! It is just amazing. I'm concerned about safety since they are dancing with knives and fires, but maybe that's a good thing! :P The 'Prior' task does not entertain me as much. I don't really like it, but I don't hate it either. The Roadblock is great! Finding a Hidden Immunity Idol will be amazing! I hope TAR hired Russell Hantz as the clue-giver or even the Pit Stop greeter! I like this leg a lot! Four points from me!

Leg 12: I just have to say one thing before I start critiquing this – ELEVEN HIDDEN IMMUNITY IDOLS! <3333333333333333333333333333333 I think this is Ethiopian Highlands all over again! :lol3: Now, let's get serious! The bat poop is sure interesting – I think poop tasks has been the theme of this season, so it is funny to see a poop task actually making its way into the finale as well. :lol: I have mixed feelings about the rodeo. I like the task to some extent, but I don't really like this as a challenge on the final leg. I think it would be better suited for a different leg, in my opinion. The final Roadblock is stunning! I will go into more detail when separately judging your final leg, but for now, it is a four out of five.

TOTAL: 47/60

supah3ro

Show content
Leg 1: Two designers doing Bolivia eh... interesting choice. I love TAR's only visit to Bolivia, so let's see if your's lives up to it. Both of your additional tasks are phenomenal – I especially love the greased up pole. I am a big fan of unconventional ways of determining departure times!!! The Roadblock is nice too! So far, I am very impressed with the first legs of both designers. Five points from me!

Leg 2: This leg involves too much manual labour for my liking. I would be fine with some manual labour incorporated into the Detour or the Roadblock, but when you have a Roadblock involving manual labour, directly followed by two Detour options involving manual labour, it gets highly repetitive. I like the tasks on their own, which is why I will give you three points, but I think the leg does not work when you combine the tasks together, which is why I can't go any higher.

Leg 3: I love the Detour – particularly the 'Parading Along'. I sure hope for the teams' sake that the queens are on a diet! :lol: The task at the restaurant was great, and those would be some fascinating delicacies that many teams would struggle with. The Roadblock just kills the entire leg for me. Placing a bungee jump or skydive as a major task is tantamount to TAR design suicide in my books – it just wastes the Roadblock. If you had the bungee as a Route Info additional challenge, it would be much, much better. In addition, maybe you could switch the eating challenge to a Roadblock and  kill two birds with one stone. It's a good leg, so you get four points, but with a little more organisation, this leg has the potential to get five.

:Leg 4: OMG this Fast Forward is taking place like ten minutes from my house! <333 I am so spoiling this leg! <333 I was actually driving by Palm Beach just the other day! :lol: I have low expectations for an Australian leg, as I mentioned with addie, but your Fast Forward is actually good, and those 'thrill-seeking' challenges act as decent Fast Forwards. As I've said before, the Roadblock is phenomenal. Unfortunately, I am disappointed that skydiving has been chosen as a Detour – see the Leg 3 comments above. The other Detour task is so amazing, but this Detour is very poorly balanced and nobody is going to choose that awesome task, unless they have a Flo freakout. It's a shame, because if that Detour option had been changed, it would have been an almost flawless leg, but it absolutely killed it down to a three.

Leg 5: Angkor Wat and Bayon gives this leg a very TAR13 feel, but your task there is better than TAR13... just. Both Detour tasks are well thought out and well-balanced, but neither would constitute a particularly interesting task to watch on TV. However, on the bright side, the U-Turn is very well placed and the Roadblock is sensational! I really love seeing the land mine task – I had a similar challenge in mind while participating on TAR DC2, but I never got the chance to use it, so I'm really happy to see you have done that! Four points from me!

Leg 6: I really hate crocodiles! That Roadblock would be hard to watch for me, but to be honest, it isn't too bad. The 'Fishy Bustle' is pretty simple – I don't think it would be too hard to identify a fish . The 'Khmer Hustle' also seems to be very similar to a Detour from TAR9 in Greece, so it feels unoriginal to me. I don't like this leg much. Only two points unfortunately.

Leg 7: The Roadblock is decent but not great. I do, however, like the carrying of the bed frame across that long route! Will be fun! Your Detour is what I like most about this leg – both tasks are quite interesting and relevant, and the 'Cattle Run' will be particularly intriguing if teams get uncooperative cows. (My Cow Is Broken! :lol:) I don't know what I make of the Speed Bump right at the end of the leg – I don't like its positioning. Also, the task reminds me of the Detour from TAR6 in Senegal, except it is even harder than that challenge, and I think it needs to be simplified if you want to use it as a Speed Bump. It is three points from me.

Leg 8: When I first read the Fast Forward, I thought it was too simple. But after going back over it, I think it actually sounds like a great task, and particularly tricky if multiple teams decided to go for it! Grinding the coffee beans would be pretty interesting if multiple teams were there. The elusive red coffee bean (or in this case yellow) is one of the most iconic challenges in TAR history. I think it would have worked better in Costa Rica where the original challenge took place as a Switchback, but I do admit that I would love to see it again! Hooray for more faeces! A step up from the last two legs! Four points for sure!

Leg 9: The Roadblock is not bad. It would be pretty frustrating for the teams I'm sure, but then again, I don't think anybody should have too many problems. :/ I like the 'Rotation', but as I revealed earlier in the game, I have safety concerns for the children. I don't think TAR would go for this challenge. The 'Creation' is a nice task, but compared to the other option, it is very detail-oriented and tedious, so I think an appropriate balance is absent from this challenge. It's not a failure for me, but it only just passes for three points.
Leg 10: I am just going to number the leg like this – considering the TBC to be two separate legs – just for me own ease. These comments refer to Slovenia. The horse thing is really boring. Instead of cleaning horses, why not have them ride the horses or do something that would be somewhat fun to watch. I don't like it. :( 'Underground' is a better task, but again, I think this is better suited as a Route Info, not a Detour task. It is far too simple for me. I liked your Roadblock at first, but after re-reading the wording, I think the task is way too simple. If they only have to find one of five puppets among thirty, then their odds of finding one are actually far too high and they could even get it by guessing. If you had made them identify all five puppets, then this task would have been much better. So at this point, I was just about ready to give a one for this leg, but then I read the additional tasks, which are just amazing! Because of those additional tasks, you have saved this leg from being a complete disaster. Three points from me, which is pretty generous considering the leg was awful until after both the Roadblock and Detour had finished.

Leg 11: (Or Leg 10 by your counting system. :P) The 'Charade' task – as I have mentioned before – is beyond amazing! I LOVE LOVE this task – pun intended! :lol: The 'Displayed' would be entertaining to watch them carry the artwork, but perhaps it would be more challenging to have them wrap up the painting correctly and have it approved themselves. The Roadblock is also breathtaking! I love it! After a run of some pretty dismal legs, it's safe to say that this one is a big hit! Five big points from me! For me, this is the best individual leg submitted within this finale.

Leg 12: The final Roadblock is amazingly done! I love it a lot! Unfortunately, I think the finale is lacking in tasks. There is only crab moving, the memory challenge and some cryptic clues to decode, which are nice, but not really tasks. Overall, it's a four from me, but we'll get into more detail when scoring this separately.

TOTAL: 43/60

Leg 1: Absolutely LOVE your Starting Line task! I actually have played that game before and I have solved it successfully, so I would do well at that, but I think many teams would struggle! :lol: (Cue Brenchel.) The Roadblock doesn't really interest me, but the task with the patterns is a nice tricky one. A good leg that gets four points from me.

Leg 2: I like the first Route Info task and the chocolates, as I mentioned when you previously designed this leg. The Detour and Roadblock have improved, so it is four points from me here. Also, you have got one of the most beautiful Pit Stops in TAR history! <333

Leg 3: I kinda like the Roadblock – it might be entertaining. The Detour looks half-good – I like the olive pitting but the fish one seems a little boring. At least the Detour is well-balanced. I do, however, like the twist that the last two teams (Intersected team) both get the Speed Bump – it is a good twist which bumps my score up from a three to a four.

Leg 4: I have a lot of positives and negatives for this leg. First lets do the positives. The long self-driving is amazing <333 and feels just like good old classic TAR <333 and the 'Track Search' task and the Roadblock are both amazing and relevant. What I dislike is the snakes which I find disgusting (but the task itself is above average) and I really hate the Speed Bump, because it is not relevant to South Africa in any way and it is also pretty boring. The other negative is the Surprise Double U-Turn. I really don't like U-Turns positioned directly before the Pit Stop BUT you sorta get away with it because of the long drive to the Detour/Pit Stop, which makes it borderline acceptable. Still, there's a lot that can be done to patch up this leg, so it is a three from me.

Leg 5: This leg feels very rushed to me. That first task is a decent filler task and it could be entertaining if more than four teams are there at once. The 'Heaven' task is not bad, but if we had more details on exactly what teams were identifying and how, it would be much better. The 'Underworld' is half-decent, but it has the potential of being a better task. Maybe if you incorporated something to do with interpreting the writing on the graves and acting accordingly, that would be more interesting. The Roadblock is average but very rushed. There could be a better task for Uzbekistan. I'm leaning in between a two and a three, but ultimately I have decided to go with the latter.

Leg 6: I kinda like the Fast Forward. It seems to be relevant to South Korean culture, so that is good for me. But it may be hard and/or impossible for teams who are not fast runners and can't catch the people. I don't like the 'Classy Singer' Detour option – it just seems like it is pointless if you ask me. I also hate this so-called 'Gangnam Style' phenomenon, but it does make an interesting task on TAR, and maybe it will get us some new fans. The Roadblock is decent but not great. The Pit Stop is reused from TAR4. I don't mind, but it would be nice to be original OR maybe ask the teams to 'go to the TAR4 South Korea Pit Stop' as a cryptic clue. This one is worth three points to me.

Leg 7: I like the first clue – it may trick some of the teams. The 'Say It' task is not bat, but you had teams learn the language in South Korea, and you had the teams do a writing task in Uzbekistan, so I think it is just too many language tasks heaped on top of one another. I think it should be cut back a little. The 'Taste It' is not a bad challenge but I would like to know what the ingredients are, because if some or all of the ingredients are obscure flavourings, it could actually be way too difficult. I like the Roadblock because it is culturally relevant. I like the twist with the NEL penalty. Interesting! Might be a little generous, but it is four points from me.

Leg 8: We've had too many Indonesia legs on TAR in recent seasons, BUT self-driving will be interesting and funny, although I'm not sure if it would be safe for teams who have not experienced these road conditions before. Eight kilograms of tea leaves sounds like too much... surely each tea leaf can't way more than a couple of grams... that would be thousands of leaves by my calculation. It seems a bit excessive to me. Also, I would have preferred this task as a Detour or Roadblock and not a Fast Forward. Both Detour options are good, but neither is great. The Roadblock is decent and is culturally relevant, so it helps raise your score to a three.

Leg 9: 'Comedy' Detour is good. The 'History' is not quite as good but it is passable. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Roadblock! <33333 the last task at the end is decent and a good way to showcase the Travelocity Gnomes. Overall, a good leg which also exceeds my low expectations of Australia, so it is four points from me.

Leg 10: I am going to give you ten points by default because you actually decided to follow instructions and complete an Antarctica leg unlike your competitors. :res: I would have given your leg five points anyway, because I like the Detour and the Roadblock a lot. That map gave me a great laugh! Thanks! :lol3:

Leg 11: Both of the Detour options aren't particularly unique or particularly exciting. I don't really like the Detour. However, your Roadblock is one of the best challenges of your race! The goalkeeper thing is fun (I am a huge soccer fan so this works for me! :P) and the cryptic Pit Stop clue is awesome. The leg started bad but improved seriously and immensely, so you get four points.

Leg 12: OMG Home Alone <333 I love, I love! This is one of the best things I have seen! The Christmas decorations are decent since you were asked to do the Christmas theme. I don't really like the theme for a TAR leg, but you are following instructions, so I don't deduct points for that. The Memory Challenge is downright AMAZING! <333 And the candy thing works for me. It's your first five-pointer from me! ;) (although Antarctica would have gotten five as well.)

TOTAL: 51/60

ROUTE SCORES:

So now I am going to give each of you a score out of 40 for the route as a whole. Points will be given for using countries not seen before (and to a much lesser extent, places and cities that haven't been seen before) and using countries that have not been visited frequently, and definitely require a visit in my opinion. Points are subtracted for visiting overly used places, e.g. China and India. The way your route is structured will also be assessed.

You visited four countries which have not been seen before on TAR – Venezuela, Gabon, Laos and Samoa. I was also particularly happy with the inclusion of South Africa, which hasn't been seen since TAR7 and is desperately in need of a TAR visit soon! Bolivia is a good location. I love that the Dutch and Finnish legs tackle areas of the country that have not been visited, even though I'm not too crazy about the Christmas theme myself. The India leg disappointed me slightly and was the major flaw in your design.

To analyse the structure of you route, I like the beginning. South American starts are often good – and when they are full of exciting tasks like yours, it is a surefire hit. I'm very excited about the lack of Asia in your route which is overused to the point that it is almost impossible for me to watch now on TAR. I would've loved another leg in Africa, but overall it is pretty good. I also like the fact that you have some legs with little travel time and close locations (such as Netherlands to Finland) but you also have some legs with a lot of travel (such as Croatia to India or Bolivia to South Africa). It fits together well and gives it the feel of the classic days of TAR. I'm not a big fan of the easterly route – I prefer Asia to be first so that we can get it over and done with and then have the better legs later – but since some of my favourite seasons are actually the easterly routes, there's no point deduction for that!

Overall, I will score you 35 points out of 40 here, with the deduction of a few points for India just because it is far too used. (I would have deducted more points if you went to Mumbai or Delhi or somewhere else we have seen a hundred times already)

I love the country of Peru, and I enjoy the fact that your route showcases Peru for two legs! Bolivia is great as well. Unfortunately Slovenia is the only race first, which is slightly disappointing for me. I would have preferred Cambodia to be cut back into only one leg (especially since there were some weak tasks in there) and I wish you did somewhere else in Africa besides Tanzania which is the most overused African country, but since that is your re-do leg you were forced to do, I obviously can't penalise you for it. Mozambique is fine and of course Croatia is great. France produces some exciting legs – including yours – so it is good on the route, and I like the Baltimore finish.

I like the westerly route. Travelling from South America to Australia is nice – it was done on TAR13 but the second half of that season's route was not up to scratch. I love the long flights from South America to Australia and from Cambodia to Mozambique and a good route overall.
I will also score your route 35 because it did have a couple of things I didn't like, as I outlined above, but was very good for the most part. :)

Guatemala and Uzbekistan are new! And of course Antarctica! I kinda love the jump from Greece to South Africa and then going all the way to Uzbekistan on the next leg. There will be a lot of flight drama just like the classic days of TAR. There were too many legs in Asia for me – for a route that is showcasing seven continents, four legs in one continent is too much. Indonesia has also been used too much on the recent seasons on TAR. One more leg in Africa or South America would have been nice.

Argentina making an appearance on Leg 11 is unprecedented, which I absolutely love! I love how both the first leg and the penultimate leg are set in the Americas. That is great! Also really excited about Greece which needs a visit and South Africa too.

I'm going to also give you 35 points. I think all three designers have very good routes, but all have a couple of minor flaws that could be patched up to make it the complete route. Great effort!

TOTAL OUT OF 100:

Show content
addie – 82
supah3ro – 78
calphin – 86

But wait! I am not done yet. I need to administer my own penalty to addie and supah3ro for failing to listen to instructions and include an Antarctica leg. You have both missed out on ten points from the Antarctica round of judging, but I feel that additional penalties are required.

If you were hired by WRP to design TAR legs and they told you “we want a leg in Argentina”, then you design a leg in Argentina. Unfortunately, neither of you were able to apply this principle to this game so if you did this to WRP, you would get fired.

As a result, I am going to administer a thirty point penalty to each of you from my own scores. Your failure to meet our criteria is both astounding and extremely disappointing, not to mention unjustified. To quote supah from the fantasy game thread , apparently is “just some icebergs and...”. Well watching icebergs melt would be more entertaining than your second Cambodia leg so that's not an excuse... :res:

So the adjusted scores from me are:

addie – 52
supah3ro – 48
calphin – 86

REDO LEGS

Show content
OK, I am going to judge the redo legs, solely on how they improved from the original. A scale of one to ten on improvement from the original.

addie

Show content
This is interesting, because you went to a completely different part of Australia. Unfortunately, your Detour is nowhere near as good as one side of the previous Detour you had created, but your Roadblock is a huge improvement. You've improved the Roadblock but worsened the Detour, so it balances out to seven out of ten for me. Both of the legs are very good. I don't think the “redo” category works very well for you addie, because it is hard to improve on the originals. :lol:

supah3ro

Show content
The Roadblock has definitely improved. A lot. The Detour has also improved, but largely as a result of a Switchback-esque challenge. It is a good leg with a lot of improvement, so eight points from me.

calphin

Show content
Thanks for getting rid of that Detour that I didn't like. :lol: The new Detour is definitely an improvement to some extent. The Roadblock isn't bad either, and you have produced one of the most amazing Pit Stop locations ever. You also listened really closely to my feedback and kept the challenges which I said were good, which is really awesome! I'm going to award nine points for a huge improvement!

ANTARCTICA:

Show content
calphin's leg is flawless, while the other two felt no need to submit. That is all.

FINALE LEGS:

Show content
I am currently on Page 8 of my word document with all of these comments, so I am not going to go into as much detail as I normally would to judge a whole leg.

My thoughts on the final legs are that both addie's and supah3ro's final legs contained good memory challenges but there were not enough tasks throughout the rest of the leg. calphin's also contained a great memory challenge, but his leg was actually full of enough tasks to fill up an hour (or more) of television.

I'm going to split my scoring up into two components – ten points for the memory challenge and ten points for the legs as a whole. I believe supah3ro's memory challenge is the best, as such he gets ten points for it, while calphin will get nine, as it is just slightly less amazing. addie's is also good, but the finding objects thing is a little too generic, but it will still get seven points from me.

calphin definitely gets ten points for the second component, as I felt that his was a complete leg, whereas both addie's and supah3ro's were designed in a way that we had a couple of pointless things leading up to a memory challenge. Nonetheless, at least addie had two 'tasks' in his leg, whereas I think it would be really hard to fill up one hour with supah3ro's leg, as it was just transporting crabs, going a few places and then a memory task. I'll give seven points to addie and five to supah3ro for their second component. While you have both focussed on creating a great memory challenge – you have both neglected the remainder of your leg, in my opinion. It is a little bit of a letdown.

So adding up the scores from both components, I award the following scores out of twenty:

addie – 14
supah3ro – 15
calphin – 19

That's all from me, guys! It has been a fun ride watching you all design! It has been an honour to critique your designs and I hope you take some of the comments on board for future reference! Thanks for playing!

Final thoughts:

Show content
-If addie had included Antarctica in his route, it would have been miles ahead of both other designs in my book.
-addie had the best route as a whole for me and one of the best tasks I've ever seen, while calphin had the best Antarctica leg (SHOCKER!) and the best finale leg and the best redo leg. On the other hand, supah3ro had the best memory challenge, one of the best individual legs (France) and a great redo leg. Based on all of this, I will be more than happy to see any of you take the crown because each of you were able to dominate various aspects of this final round!

Good luck and congratulations on an amazing performance! Congratulations in advance to the winner – I have no idea who it will be!

I just want to ESPECIALLY thank racer for going to the effort by SUPPORTING his scores and actually giving feedback. Cocoa and Paldog, I was disappointed we only got numbers from you. Even though I'm always the one complaining about how you long you take to score etc, I actually wouldn't mind if you were taking time to give us feedback.

ANYWAY, great season. Looking forward to next season. Sign me up! ;)

After reading through your comments racer, I dun understand what you're saying with this:

You ranked calphin higher everywhere, so don't tell me you like my route more than if I included Antarctica. And you gave me the lowest amount of points on the redo leg cause the previous leg was already good, that makes no sense to me. Anyways, sry calphin, it's a well deserved win, you were the best in the final almost all your tasks were flawless! And thanks to all the three hosts for making this a truely exciting game, I'm flattered that I made it to the final.

And thanks to all the three hosts for making this a truely exciting game, I'm flattered that I made it to the final.

If you read through the entirety of the comments, you will notice that I also gave calphin ten points out of five for his Antarctica leg as a reward for actually doing it, but if you had also done an Antarctica leg, then calphin would have gotten only five points for that leg, and you would have got something out of five (assumably pretty high) and thus you would have finished with the higher route score from me. That's how my comment makes sense.

And I said your 'route' was the best one, I never said your 'redo leg' was the best, so that has nothing to do with the other comment anyway.

And I don't believe my penalty was that harsh. It was administered merely for the sake of not being able to follow instructions. It wouldn't have been that hard to create a decent Antarctica leg in place of one of your other not-so-good legs for both you and supah.

Anyways, sry calphin, it's a well deserved win, you were the best in the final almost all your tasks were flawless! And thanks to all the three hosts for making this a truely exciting game, I'm flattered that I made it to the final.

If you read through the entirety of the comments, you will notice that I also gave calphin ten points out of five for his Antarctica leg as a reward for actually doing it, but if you had also done an Antarctica leg, then calphin would have gotten only five points for that leg, and you would have got something out of five (assumably pretty high) and thus you would have finished with the higher route score from me. That's how my comment makes sense.

And I said your 'route' was the best one, I never said your 'redo leg' was the best, so that has nothing to do with the other comment anyway.

And I don't believe my penalty was that harsh. It was administered merely for the sake of not being able to follow instructions. It wouldn't have been that hard to create a decent Antarctica leg in place of one of your other not-so-good legs for both you and supah.

No need to revolve around it, the last comment you gave was 'Addie would have been miles ahead of the other designs, if he had included Antarctica in his race route', you never mentioned only the race route and if it was only the race route I wasn't miles ahead either. About the redo leg, you only gave me 7 points cause my leg was already good. I don't think that is really fair, cause if I'd gotten a trainwreck leg to redesign, you would have scored me a lot higher with the same design. I can't help it I did that design. I feel like you only designed me really low, so calphin could win.

Just my thoughts ;)

Plus racer giving us an extra very harsh penalty at the Race Route.

After reading through your comments racer, I dun understand what you're saying with this:

-If addie had included Antarctica in his route, it would have been miles ahead of both other designs in my book.

Well if that's your thoughts, I don't really care to be honest, but I have outlined exactly how and why I gave each and every point and believe I have judged in as fair a manner as possible. I also didn't believe your redo leg was an improvement on the original. The original leg had a great Detour and a Roadblock that had potential to grow and be turned into a better task, whereas the redo leg had an unexciting Detour and a great Roadblock, so in that sense, my score of seven might have been a little generous anyway, since I - to some extent - preferred the original, to be frank. Both other redo legs were significantly better than their originals.

The fact of the matter remains that if you wanted to be a genuine contender, you should have followed the instructions. Failure to do so resulted in my scores not even being close. You could have very easily replaced your India leg (which was your weakest leg imo, although you could have replaced any leg) with an Antarctica leg which would probably have been better than the India leg anyway, since I know you can come up with great tasks, and made it a close - if not clear-cut - contest.

I cold respond to this again, but I don't think it will change either of our opinions. You were a great judge who at least gave comments on or hard work of hours and hours. :)

Not to be bitchy, but an Antarctic leg is really lame, boring and unfeasible. Remind me what good locations and culture Antarctica has again? Penguins? LOL. Sorry, but it's really hard to make an even somewhat decent leg there. I really couldn't blame supah and addie for not wanting to do it :/ But whatever, I understand why they got penalties etc, just saying lol.

Surely if these players were ACTUALLY hired by WRP they'd be able to say, "Here, my Antarctica leg but it sucks... I've made a better one over here and I suggest that it would be better for the season if we included it." Not that hard, it's not like WRP hasn't changed things last minute anyway :|  They'd rather a decent leg than a crap one just to get another new location. Oh well, it is what it is.

Anyway, congrats F3, especially Calphin. You actually earnt your win so well done <3 I'm looking forward to DC4 <3

Well if either addie or supah had presented a design with twelve amazing legs, then I might agree with you to some extent. However, both designers had at least one leg which was not very good and which I scored a two (meaning that it failed, since two out of five is 40%) and they could have easily replaced those legs with an Antarctic leg which would have most probably been better, since both designers have come up with great tasks in interesting locations before.

So I suppose I would have to agree with you IF they had presented twelve amazing legs, BUT both routes did have a weak spot which could have easily been replaced with Antarctica, stuck with the theme and avoided the penalty.
