Each person will use a series of very small paddles to maneuver a ball through a series of obstacles. If at any point the ball drops, they will have to go back to the start. The first person to transfer three balls wins.
The challenge made its debut in Survivor: San Juan del Sur as the final five Immunity Challenge. Keith Nale had previously won an advantage of practicing the challenge earlier. This allowed him to easily finish the challenge, with no one else coming close, to win Individual Immunity.
The challenge returned in Survivor: Game Changers, again as the final five Immunity Challenge. Though Sarah Lacina and Troyzan Robertson came close to the final obstacle on several occasions, only Brad Culpepper managed to get his balls to the end, winning immunity.
