|Recurring Survivor Challenge|
Tomb Raider (also known as In-Cog-Neato, Search & Decode, and Try-Any-Angle) is a recurring challenge of Survivor.
In Survivor: Guatemala, one at a time, three players run to grab giant puzzle pieces. After all the pieces were retrieved, two other players would solve the puzzle.
In Survivor: Panama, three players run along a path through a field (crisscrossing the other tribe's several times) to reach one of four stations, untie a giant hanging skull-shaped puzzle piece, and haul it back. Then, the two others take the pieces and place them into rotating pieces on a solving platform until they all fit.
In Survivor: China, one at a time, the tribes must enter an abandoned village, grab a color-coded plank, and return. Once all eight have been found, they must slide them into a grid to form an eleven-word phrase made famous by Confucius.
In Survivor: Tocantins, one tribe member at a time would race along a winding path to retrieve a puzzle piece. Each puzzle piece is a large wooden triangular prism with letters written on each of the three faces. Once eight puzzle pieces are retrieved, they would need to be placed in their correct spot in a frame. The pieces would then need to be rotated to display a scrambled phrase.
