Re:What happened if they retrieved all the quest items in the series?

We can't know for certain (unless Tim Child drops by and tells us ;)) whether or not the Knightmare production team ever planned for such a scenario. They may have thought it too unlikely to occur. It's worth remembering that in some series it was impossible for all quest objects to be won, as they mysteriously went back into the Dungeon immediately; e.g. Team 5 of Series 6 brought back the Crown, and minutes later, Team 6 started a quest for it.

...and the fact that before the new series begins...Knightmare castle somehow got the items robbed (retrieved from the last series) once again. lol XD

The one that always got me was after Ben redeemed the Crown in series 6, and then Sofia also went for the Crown bare seconds after Ben had brought it back! Treguard was saying "Do you wish to redeem the Crown..." and he'd had the thing in his hands five minutes earlier! Always rankled with me a bit.

They should have done something about that, we may very well have had a quest for the Cup, which NEVER occured in the series. Partly because the tile was parked to the far right! Nobody ever looks right usually!

Most people would usually regard the Cup as either a dull object to retrieve or an impossible quest LOL ;D

The Knights of the Round Table, Indiana Jones, and competitive sportspeople might disagree with that. ;)

Treguard does a dance.

I don't think it would make any difference would it? The crown, cup etc are not important in themselves its the quest to redeem them.

The Cup, because it was never redeemed on the show, and it's the Holy Grail!

If they had fetched all 4 traditional objects they'd then have the maid and then possibly the 6th would be something in relation to her for example for 'the golden contraceptive'...or maybe not ;D

As for my choice of objects the Sword! (As long as I could keep it!) ;)

I think fireworks would have gone off outside Knightmare Castle, Treguard would have gone "We've won! We have every single quest item!" and at 5:10pm, replacing that day's episode of Blockbusters, would be a huge hour long CITV party with Treguard and co getting down with Pat Sharp, Neil Buchanan, Tilly Tom and Tiny, Gaz Top, etc etc etc. But then in the next episode, mirroring trends for certain computer games at the time, four new quest items would be brought in!

The SUPER Sword, which is coloured gold and flashes a bit through the magic of Commodore.

The SUPER Shield which fires laser bolts.

The SUPER Cup which is filled with delicious Vanilla Coke.

And the SUPER Crown which spins around, flashes disco lights and plays the KM theme whenever someone puts it on.



Anyway.




The Cup would be the one I'd instantly go for as no one else ever won it!

I'd go for the Talisman, because the quest only happened once and it was a win. Sounds like a lucky quest object, in more ways than one.

(Crown of Glory)
(Shield of Justice)
(Cup of Healing accoring to Wikapedia)
