Game Speculations


This is a thread to speculate on what games may be added/removed.

Probably more speculating to be done on what is removed at this point since they’ve likely advertised a lot of the new, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s still one or two surprises to go. But as I was updating the game guide earlier today, I saw a bunch of the game names and realized we’ve seen absolutely nothing of them in this season. Most of the games confirmed in the original trailer for the season are the same ones that appeared in episode 1, but obviously there must be more games than that returning (or at least there better be!).

We know we have Skipping Stones for sure coming back from a clip and prob Dominoes and Blueberry Hill/Wet Paint given they have the sets for their partner games, but what else will come back? Or will they not remove anything at all?

I wouldn't be surprised if Tug Of War was removed considering it wasn't played much in the last series.

Re: Game Speculations


Yeah, that seems like a likely candidate. As it was, there was very little excitement in the matches because I remember the guards were the same both times - with one being useless and the other three ropes having groups of guards to which the contestants stood no chance. It was all luck, no skill.

But as I updated the game guide (well, the five games that were already on it as I have to add a ton more new ones now emoticon), I got really concerned about a bunch of the games on there. I knew how many games we had in the first season and how many are yet to be confirmed for this one, but scrolling down that list really brought it to my eyes - I could go through stretches on that list that include only games that we haven’t seen yet.

It’s really weird to be concerned for a show that’s adding so much new stuff, but I am worried they’ve purged most everything aside from the necessities from season 1. It’s just weird that very little has turned up of it yet. It’s hard to say that from today since it was almost all new stuff (to my amazement), but I just get the vibe that we’ll be missing a ton. I mean, they must have repurposed a lot of stuff/space for the new games. I hope not though as there’s a reason that things like Avalanche, Mushroom Trip, High Rollers, Slip away, etc. we’re played so much more than games like Mudskippers, Roll the Dice and Single Roller.

I NEVER thought I’d take issue with a TC show having too many new games, it’s insane. But we are going through new games like Tic Tacs. I remember just how excited I’d get at even the prospect of a new game on TCT (after 30 weeks of not getting one), here I’ll read that we have four new games and barely bag an eyelid lol. Maybe they will hit 50 games after all (just hopefully that doesn’t entail getting rid of all the original ones to make these new, more obscure ones!).

It’s good, just weird. I would like some details on how they play Roll the Dice and Snow Lane. I almost feel like my leg is being pulled ‘cos how do you even build Snow Lane??? emoticon emoticon

EDIT: Well, I just viewed the clips of the new games, and it seems like Big Bird is in the Palm Tree Trip area so that (and maybe Turtle Hurtle) is fairly likely to return. Same with Single Roller being in the High Rollers area (isn’t it), but given the track they’ve added for it, a High Rollers comeback seems less promising.

It's amazing to think everyone's main problems with the modern remakes on this forum is lack of new games. We then get new games and this happens emoticon Personally I'm very happy for a good amount of new ones, but hey it's only an opinion.

I'm really intrigued to see what the snow games look like in SA. Hope there will be some clips soon.

Re: Game Speculations


For sure!

To clarify, I have nothing against new games myself. The more the merrier, I just think it will be an issue if they removed some of the better season 1 stuff for them. If it means removing a couple of the nag ones (Show of Hands and Velcro Fly, anyone?) then completely fine, but I just don’t want to lose the vast majority of the season 1 games. I want a bit of continuity between seasons!

I’m writing all this mainly to point out the novelty of this problem. It’s a pleasant dilemma really!
