    Good evening everyone!

    Oceanic Tribe, welcome back. Let's welcome the new Dharma Tribe... with Dekacloud being voted out at the last Tribal Council.

    Jave, I'm going to need to take back immunity.

    *Colin accepts the Immunity Idols from Jave*

    Immunity is once again up for grabs. In this week's challenge we test your cognitive faculties. Your challenge is to just correctly answer the questions below.

    Don't forget, you have until 11:59pm Wednesday evening to submit to me your answers. As always, First Submission is all that gets counted, additional submissions are thrown into the fire like fresh kindling.

    The first tribe to complete the challenge, or the tribe with the most correct at the end of the time period will win immunity, and get to stay in our game for another week.
