I stumbled on the qualification round for the 2017 MarbleLympics last night. I proceeded to watch the first 4 events before I realized the time. This morning I finished the entire games. What a rush of excitement it was. I won’t give many spoilers, except to say that there were plenty of upsets and new records set this year.
The production quality of this series is top notch, it looks professionally done. The commentator – Greg Woods (F1FanWoodsie), does a superb job on the entire games, he has gotten very into each of the events and shows genuine enthusiasm for everything. I like all of the little details added to the games – each marble has a name, each team has a history and the crowd is very into everything going on!
Replays, picture in picture, overviews of the standings. Everything about this is amazing! Each of the courses is very well thought out and unique. Block pushing was fun, the sand race from the qualifier round was my favorite I think. Fidget spinning was a long event, too long in my opinion, but still enjoyable to watch. It’s almost more fun to watch then the real Olympics, and I love the Olympics! I can’t wait to see what the 2018 games bring about.
