Game of Bridge (also known as Seven Bridges Road) is a recurring challenge that originated in Survivor: South Pacific.

Rules

Castaways must race to remove planks from a crate and use them as part of a bridge. Each plank is individual and will only fit in one spot. Once the bridge is complete, the castaways would tag out and remove the planks from the bridge, saving the ones with part of a puzzle on them. They would then collect the puzzle planks and solve a puzzle. The first person to finish wins.

In Ghost Island, the challenge was combined with the climbing elements from Great Escape Run, and the bridge pieces are no longer recycled for the puzzle.

History

The challenge originated in South Pacific as the fifth Redemption Island duel, where Christine Shields Markoski and Mikayla Wingle squared off. In a very tight race, Christine went on to win her fifth duel, eliminating Mikayla from the game.

In Blood vs. Water, the challenge was used as the fourth duel between Candice Cody, John Cody, and Brad Culpepper. Although Candice had the lead early in the challenge, she soon slowed down, allowing the two men to overtake her. Ultimately, John finished the puzzle first, followed by Brad, bringing Candice's time on Redemption Island to an end.

The challenge returned as an Immunity Challenge in Ghost Island where a ladder-building portion was added after the bridge. Wendell Holland held a lead throughout the entire challenge, and was the first to finish his puzzle. However, he made the mistake of not calling host Jeff Probst over to check his puzzle, allowing Laurel Johnson to complete hers and win immunity.
