Members from each tribe would race across a series of three wooden A-frames carrying three coils of rope. At the end of the course, a few members would use the rope to pull a heavy wooden crate across a ramp and up to the finish platform. The remaining tribe members would then disassemble the crate to use as puzzle pieces. The first tribe to solve their puzzle would win.
In Survivor: Samoa, the challenge appeared as the first Immunity Challenge of the season. Galu was the first to spell out the phrase, "Without victory there is no survival," sending Foa Foa to Tribal Council.
The challenge later reappeared in Survivor: Cambodia. However, the puzzle was changed to a vertical puzzle similar to the one from Buoy Oh Buoy, a challenge from Survivor: Blood vs. Water. In a close race, Bayon narrowly defeated Ta Keo, sending Ta Keo to their second Tribal Council.
