    Well done to Blofeld, a worthy winner and my second favourite villain. Apart from that, this list bears no resemblance to my ranking!

    He didn't actually get his ass kicked. He finished 2nd. I see what you mean, but it is an elimination game. When there are only two left standing someone is going to get eliminated.
    This game reminds me of the hugely popular Survivor TV series on CBS, now in its 29th season. There are several ways for competitors to play in order to get to the end, and be the last guy standing.
    One method is to consistently vote off the least worthy person.
    Another way is to keep voting off the easiest mark in order to adance yourself.
    A third way is to strategically vote out the most dangerous threats.
    Or a combination of all three.
    Our games here utilize all three approaches.
    But there is a big difference between our games and Survivor.
    In Survivor, the only player that counts is you, so you have to play strategically or die.
    Here I tend to use the first approach, because I am not so heavily invested in who wins. But if I was, I would use the more strategic 2nd and 3rd approaches.
    In Survivor, you pretty much have to use the 2nd and 3rd approaches to advance yourself.

    @QBranch was actually making a gag based on Aliens. Don't know see why you're reading so much into it.

    Thank you @Willy. No need to kill the vibe by dissecting jokes.

    @timmer- if you haven't seen Aliens, then get to it! ;)

    Most certainly not my choice for a winner, but congratulations still. I'll give it a few hours for opinions/reviews/etc. before I start the Bond Girl Elimination Game. I already have a list down and ready to start.

    Goldfinger and Sanchez should switch places in the lineup. more evidence that there are too many Dalton fans, and not enough Bond fans on this website...

    But, Sanchez is a much better villain than Goldfinger. With a far less stupid name. The best parts of Goldfinger's performance are "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!" and that look he gives when he sees the ingot on the golf course. The best parts of Sanchez's performance are when Sanchez is on the screen.

    This. I couldn't possibly agree more.

    I dont mind Goldfinger as a villain himself,although i dont like the film much,but Sanchez is a much much better villain,as my game showed.

    And i say this as very much NOT a Dalton 007 fan.

    How is Sanchez better? He's a well known criminal who gets caught at the beginning of the movie, then has to bribe his way through an escape, and then, when he's free again, he lets a stranger get deep into his organization without doing any thorough background checks on him to see if he's maybe a spy.

    Goldfinger on the other hand successfully carried out a cunning gold-smuggiling operation without the government finding out how he did it for years. It also happens that his scheme, "Operation Grand Slam" would have gone off without a hitch had it not been for the simple fact that Bond finished a mission early and was in Miami at the same time he was. Sanchez by comparison was a known criminal and was bound to get caught eventually. What's more, unlike Sanchez, Goldfinger was weary of Bond's prying nature and did a background check, found out he was 007 of the British Secret Service, and once he captured Bond he was prepared to kill him, but instead decided not to because of the suspicion it would arise on the eve of "Operation Grand Slam." Even though he kept Bond alive, he still would have been successful if not for Pussy deciding to contact Washington. Sanchez is no better than the dozen or so gangsters that Goldfinger gassed to death, which in itself is both a devious backstabbing plan, and a great public service. At the end of the day, Sanchez is just a psychotic coke dealer, while Goldfinger is a criminal mastermind.

    Are we really going to do this now? I'm not happy how the game panned out either, but I'm not going to rant that Grant didn't score first place day and night, making everyone desire to desperately beat me over the head with heavy stones until I am eternally silenced.
