The Eigth Leg of the Race

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the eighth leg of the Amazing Mutant Race 3. Last week we saw our six teams travel to Japan where they had to participate in a local fertility festival. Despite the hard challenge, Captain Koma and Caliban managed to pull out a victory, their first win in this competition.

As the winners, they get to choose one other team to Yield. A Yield forces that team to delay their start time by one hour. Koma and Caliban must select the picture of the person they wish to Yield and place it on the board.

In a dramatic finish, the last team to reach the finish, Vegeta and Wolverine were actually spared elimination as Gyrobo and Gambit incurred a time penalty. That penalty delayed them enough that the other teams were able to reach the Pit Stop before them making Gyrobo and Gambit the last team to arrive. As always, the last team to arrive is eliminated.

This leg of the race starts in Nagoya, Japan. From there the teams will catch junk steamers that will sail them to a remote island shrouded in thick clouds of fog. The locals call it – Skull Island.

Hungry yet? On the island, the teams will find that the natives have prepared a feast in the honor. This is where our racers will face their Roadblock for this leg of the race. A Roadblock is a challenge only one member of a team may perform.

The six buffet tables will be packed high with a wide variety of local cuisine. Delicacies include such things as fried tube worms, stuffed mud eels and sautéed lizard entrails. The racer selected must finish off all the food on his or her table.

Once the Roadblock is complete, the teams will then receive their Detour. A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons. Teams must successfully complete one of the tasks described on the clue. In this Detour, the teams must choose between King Kong or King of the Jungle.

In King Kong, the teams must face the giant gorilla, King Kong. The racers will have to devise an entertainment that will mollify the great ape. Once Kong is won over, the racers will have to coax him onto the large reinforced viewing stand so they can have their pictures taken with the monster.

In King of the Jungle, the teams must fight and defeat a hoard of various pre-historic creatures that inhabit the island. Dinosaurs of all types, known and unknown, roam freely posing a constant danger to the natives.

Once the Detour has been accomplished, the teams must then make their way to the hovel of the village’s medicine man, which is the Pit Stop for this leg of the race.

I blame it on interlopers from the future.

Actually I would have thought that the killer robot, sometimes known as the Lord High Executioner, would have taken it worse.

Just eat stuff, and deal with monsters and dinosaurs.

Gee you guys are getting a bit thin with the ideas aren't you.
