    I guess I can vote for Rend then, since he's actually seems to want to go.

    Day 1 Immunity Challenge

    Both teams sat there looking at the riddle and thinking about it. Many came up with nonsensical answers just to have something, others came up with good answers that didn't quite work. But one man came up with the right answer. He had a stroke of genius, he knew that it could be no other answer than that. He stood up and shouted at the host "IT IS A QUEUE"

    The winning tribe is:
    Malta.
    DevoutlyApathetic answered correctly with “Queue”.
    Malta is safe from Tribal Council.

    The correct answer was a Queue.
    5 letters in a row
    Vowels are defined as letters that make noise
    Q, a consonant doesn’t make noise
    However in this word, the word sounds like the letter Q, thus the letter Q is the one that is heard.

    Bono, you must participate in Tribal Council. Please send me the name of the person you wish to remove from the island via private message. Voting ends tonight at 9 P.M. EST.

    The following people failed to cast an Exile Vote:
    Hylianbunny
    Tuxkamen
    Maximus

    Tuxkamen, as the person with the most exile votes on the losing tribe, you are hereby banished to Exile Island, you may not communicate with anyone in any manner until Tribal is over. You will still submit a vote for Tribal though. Check your PM Box, as the first hint to finding the Idol is on its way.

    Good job, DA! I knew it was going to have to do with letters!

    Also, do we have to eliminate someone today? Or no?

    No, winning immunity means you do not participate in tribal council.

    Second Team Immunity Challenge

    You see a bunch of letters on the floor arranged in a pattern.

    “You may remove one letter and yet it will still be complete. Which one?”

    Please do not forget about voting for Exile today.

    Updated rules with information about the hidden immunity idol:

    Hidden Immunity Idol

    The hidden immunity idol protects the wearer from being voted off the island. All votes cast against this person are null and void and the person removed from the tribe is determined by the remaining votes. You may trade this idol to anyone in your tribe, just make sure to CC me in the trade.
    In order to use the idol, you must send me a PM saying that you would like to use the idol tonight before 9 PM EST on that given night. You will lose hte idol even if you were in no danger of being eliminated, so make sure to use it wisely.

    Day 2 Immunity Challenge

    The players looked at the tiles on the ground. Some focused on the question, others on the patterns that the letters made. One survivor thought it was “U or I” because the alphabet would still be complete when U and I become one. All the other contestants stared at him for a while, and then went back to thinking. One survivor thought that he had the right answer, however it turns out that the phrasing of the question didn’t matter. What mattered was something that one clever individual noticed, that it wasn’t about patterns; that it was about the picture as a whole. He told his team and one of his teammates yelled out “If you remove the Q, a Q is made from what remains.” A survivor on the other tribe exclaims “Ugh I thought that was it.”

    The winning tribe is:
    Bono.
    Locus answered correctly with “Q”.
    Bono is safe from Tribal Council.

    The correct answer was the letter Q.
    If you remove the letter Q, the remaining tiles form a big Q, and thus the picture still has all 26 letters of the alphabet.

    Malta, you must participate in Tribal Council. Please send me the name of the person you wish to remove from the island via private message. Voting ends tonight at 9 P.M. EST.

    The following people failed to cast an Exile Vote:
    Hylianbunny
    Maximus
    Plutonium

    Please do not forget to cast an Exile Vote tomorrow.

    DevoutlyApathetic, as the person with the most exile votes on the losing tribe, you are hereby banished to Exile Island, you may not communicate with anyone in any manner until Tribal is over. You will still submit a vote for Tribal though. Check your PM Box, as the first hint to finding the Idol is on its way.

    Updated the OP with more rules:

    The Merge:

    The merge will happen at some time during the game. Both tribes will be merged together and instead of team immunity challenges, there will be individual immunity challenges. The only way to prevent from going to Exile (if you are the Exile vote winner) is by winning the immunity challenge. If you are won the immunity challenge and the Exile vote, you may still chose to go to Exile Island, but only by giving up your immunity to another player.

    If you would like to give your immunity to another player you must announce it in the main thread bold and in lime. Any votes that are submitted before that time for the player you saved are now transferred to you.

    All hidden immunity idols carry over into the merge.

    Final Tribal Council/Jury:

    You are considered part of the jury if you make it to the merge, but do not make it to the final tribal council.

    This is a 2 day long event. All members of the jury will PM me with questions to ask the remaining contestants, please limit this to 1 question per contestant. I will than post this in public for the remaining contestants to answer. They will then post up your answers, and the jury will send a private vote FOR the winner of the game. (i.e. a vote for iamtheaznman means I want iamtheaznman to win).

    Day 2 Tribal Council

    “Behind each of you is a torch, grab it and approach the flame. This is part of the ritual of tribal council because fire represents your life in this game. As long as you have that fire, you are in this game, when it’s gone, so are you.”

    People seemed pretty relaxed tonight, nobody seemed worried.

    “Why do you all feel so comfortable?”

    “Because we know what is going to happen” said Maximus, “I have accepted my fate”

    One by one, members of Malta cast their vote.

    “I’ll go tally the votes. Once the votes are read, decision is final, the person will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately”

    “Maximus, 1 vote Maximus”
    "PrecisionK, 1 vote Maximus, 1 vote PrecisionK"
    “Maximus, 2 votes Maximus, 1 vote PrecisionK”
    “Maximus, 3 votes Maximus, 1 vote PrecisionK”
    “Maximus, 4 votes Maximus, 1 vote PrecisionK”
    “Second person voted out of Survivor: Puzzle Islands, Maximus. 5 votes, that’s enough, I need you to grab your torch.”
    “Maximus, the tribe has spoken.”
    “Grab your torches, head back to camp and get ready for your next challenge”


    Please do not fail to submit a vote for Tribal Council. You can submit a vote at anytime for Tribal if you feel that you will not be able to submit one later; just make sure to indicate that it is for Tribal Council in a PM.

    Third Team Immunity Challenge

    A curtain is dropped and you see on the wall:

    People look for me
    I am used to get people to do things
    I am used to hit balls
    What am I?













    Just kidding. Here is the real challenge:

    You see before you a bunch of numbers. It doesn’t make sense to you. All it says in the instructions is “Decipher”

    Changed Weekend Rules:


    Friday's Tribal Council will last until Friday at 9 P.M. EST (as normal), however the next challenge will not be put up until Sunday 9 P.M. This ensures that the exile period remains the same for everyone.

    Day 3 Immunity Challenge

    Nobody could make sense out of the numbers. They stood there coming up with ridiculous theories. Most of them involving the letter “Q”, “Q” however was not the answer to this puzzle.
    Two people came up with explanations that weren’t even close. An executive decision was made and more time was given to the contestants as well as this additional hint:

    Place Answer Here:
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _


    The Immunity Challenge has been extended. Exile Vote/Challenge extended until 4 P.M. Sunday. I only got two answers and they weren’t close so I decided to extend it.

    P.S. The Cue riddle at the beginning was a joke. This has nothing to do with queues, cues or qs.
