Steps of Knowledge

Having already sailed three-fourths of the way around the world, the great Spanish explorer Ferdinand Magellan was writing in his secret log when the cabin boy knocked.

"You're needed on the deck, captain," he said.

The men were already assembled.

"Captain." Said the first mate. "We want to return to Spain. It has been 3 1/2 months since we last saw land, we have no fresh water, and we've been eating rats, leather, and even sawdust to survive."

Magellan placed one hand on his pistol and the other on his sword.

"Return to your posts!" he said. "Or I'll have you thrown in the brig for mutiny."

Suddenly, the lookout shouted. "Land! Land ho!"

Overjoyed, everyone ran to the rail of the ship and saw the Philippine Islands in the distance. Unfortunately, while on the islands, Magellan was killed, and the men had to finish the last leg of the journey themselves. Legend has it, the first mate stole Magellan's log book, and it ended up in the Temple.

Temple Games

The Orange Iguanas are eleven-year-old Jennifer, who likes rollerblading and singing (favorite song is Weak" by SWV), and Charles (also eleven years old), who is a nose guard on a football team. The Blue Barracudas are eleven-year-old Jessica, who loves music (favorite artist is SWV - something she has in common with Jennifer), and thirteen-year-old Robert, who plays soccer.

Spice Grab (Bungee Soap Ramp)

Long ago, Europe craved spices from the Orient. One of Magellan's goals was to find a short route to the East so the spices could be brought back faster. At the top of the ramp were several spice bags. When Kirk gave the signal, Jessica and Jennifer had to climb up the ramp on their knees, grabbed a bags of spice, slid on back down, and dumped the spice into their buckets. They had 60 seconds. The first team to get all their spice bags or the team with the most spices won. Jessica had too much trouble and was unable to bring down any spice bags, while Jennifer brought down two, earning Jennifer the half pendant of life.

Four Corners of the Earth (Bungee Soap Mat)

Magellan sailed to the four corners of the Earth, but Robert and Charles did not have to go that far. Before them were four corners of the Earth. When Kirk gave the signal, each player had to grab a ship and took it to one of their two corners. They had to place the ships on their corners, then went back to the center, grabbed another ship and then did it again. The first person to place three ships on each of his corners or the person furthest along in 60 seconds won. Robert managed to placed his sixth ship before Charles, earning the Blue Barracudas the half pendant of life.

Crow's Nest (Pulley Pillar)

Old sailing ships had a lookout platform on the mast called a crow's nest. But after months at sea, these crows can get a little out of hand, and that's when you have to just clear them out. When Kirk gave the signal, one player from each team had to jump up, grab the first crow out of the crow's nest, and then they had to jump back down and put it in their buckets. Then their partners jumped up, grabbed the next one, and came back down. They had to alternate like that for up to 60 seconds. The team with the most crows in their baskets when time was up won. The Blue Barracudas won the game and the full pendant of life after placing eight crows in their bucket Orange Iguanas while the only placed six crows in their bucket, sending the former team to Olmec's Temple with 1½ pendants.

Temple Run

Robert was a fast frontrunner, making it from the Cave of Sighs to the Room of Harmonic Convergence, where he met his first Temple Guard, in just 21 seconds.

Temple Guard #1

However, after Robert handed over his Pendant of Life and tried all five step combinations in the room, no doors opened. The Room of the Harmonic Convergence was a complete dead-end, and Robert eventually backtracked and went from the Wall Climb to the Heart Room, where a second Temple Guard took him out with 1:58 remaining.

Temple Guard #2

Jessica also got caught up in the Room of Harmonic Convergence's dead end, then went back into the Wall Climb and then went through the Heart Room and the Treasure Room. In the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, she delayed quite a bit because it took her a while to realize she needed to turn the head and push down on it. 

Temple Guard #3

Finally, she made it into the Pirate's Cove— just one room away from the Log Book— when the third and final Temple Guard took her out with a mere 18 seconds to go.
