A Numbers Game (also known as Matchbox 25) is a recurring challenge of Survivor.

Rules

Castaways must race across a balance beam while untying four bags of numbered tiles. When they have all their bags, they must arrange the numbers in lines from 1 to 100. The first person to finish wins.

In David vs. Goliath, the challenge was modified for use as a tribal challenge to use a large table with heavy tiles. The tribes had to sort the numbers, 1 to 25, into their respective columns.

History

The challenge debuted in Redemption Island where the final five faced off for immunity after Andrea Boehlke returned to the game. Ashley Underwood won in a very tight race, narrowly defeating both Andrea and Rob Mariano.

The challenge reappeared in Blood vs. Water as the fifth Redemption Island Duel. Laura Morett cruised to first place, while second place was narrowly taken by John Cody over Brad Culpepper, leading to Brad's elimination.

The challenge appeared in David vs. Goliath as the first tribal Reward/Immunity Challenge, where it was combined with an obstacle course. In the end, Goliath pulled off a victory after capitalizing on their lead on David.
