Station By Station (also known as Combo Platter) is a recurring memory challenge that debuted in Survivor: Panama, and has since reappeared in Samoa and Cagayan.


Castaways must race out to a series of stations, with a certain number of objects at each station. When they count the objects, they would return to their station and use the numbers to open a series of combination locks. The first person to finish would win.


The challenge debuted in Survivor: Panama, where it was the host of the infamous fight between Terry Deitz and Aras Baskauskas, when Aras managed to finally beat Terry at a challenge to win reward.

In Survivor: Samoa, the final six competed for immunity, and for the second time in a row, Brett Clouser won, putting a wretch in the Foa Foa Four's plans.

The challenge was used again as the Immunity Challenge for the final six of Survivor: Cagayan. After 25 minutes of tries and failures, Spencer Bledsoe got his numbers right and won immunity, ending Tasha Fox's streak of Immunity Challenge victories.
