Riding The Rapids: The teams were teleported to a river marked with a starting line and had to compete in a boat track until reacting the checkered flag at the end. The teams were told that each of them have only one boat, so when they broke the boat, their game ended. To reach the finish line, they had to follow the blue pillars and if any of them reached the end, they would receive 100 diamonds. So in total, if all players reached the end. they would earn 1,200 diamonds. Sadly, not one team member reached the end, and the group earned 0 diamonds.

Story Time: In this challenge, the team had to listen to a story and remember the blocks that were listed in the story and find them in the small city and place them on either the side of red or green, red representing not in the story, and green representing in the story. This story was taken off the minecraft forums. All credits go to the author. The story is(The words in bold show the blocks told in the story):

The Blockersons were a very poor family that lived in a server that was created many years ago. Mr. Blockerson was a miner, while Mrs. Blockerson stayed at home to look after their only son, Block. Almost all of the mines in their area had already been explored. It was very hard for the family to find ores to sell. Living would cost 10 diamonds a month. But, with all the mines pretty much empty, it was very hard to live.

One day, Mr. Blockerson found a mine that had never been explored before (for he could not see any torches). It was deep underground and he was sure there would be some diamonds in the area. He wanted to explore the mine right at that second, but his iron pick was almost completely destroyed, and he figured it would take him days to explore the whole mine. Plus, Notchmas was soon approaching and he wanted to spend time with his family on that day, unlike last year. So he went back home.

Notchmas came around and the whole family celebrated. The neighbors all brought the family gifts. Block got some new music disks, Mrs. Blockerson got a brand new furnace and Mr. Blockerson got a brand new diamond pickaxe. He would use this in the cave. After Notchmas he started to get ready. He had 64 torches, 32 pork chops, a diamond pick, an Iron sword, a stone spade and 2 buckets of water just in case. The next day he was off. He found the cave and immediately started searching.

He found some iron, coal and gold. On the second day of looking, he found two diamonds. On the third day, another two diamonds. On the fourth day he found a dungeon. He managed to destroy the spawner and inside he found a music disk and a saddle. His son had always wanted a saddle so he decided to give it as a new years present. On the 5th day he decided it was time to leave. He said to his wife that if he did not come back 7 days later, they should call the police and look for him.

He started to head back, but he ran into a problem. He was lost. There were so many torches. He spent a day looking for the exit but could not find it. He then decided he would have to mine up. A few hours later he was above ground, but lost. He scouted the mountains to see if he could see any familiar sights, none. He then had an idea, he could make a compass and find his way to spawn. His house was about 100 blocks from spawn, and he would know the location. But it was staring to get dark. So he made a temporary shelter in a mountain and waited for the sun to rise.

He smelted his iron, got a compass ready and by that time, the sun was up. He came out of his little shelter and followed his compass. But, he reached the top of the mountain and came face to face with 2 creepers. He ran, but it was too late. One exploded, doing lots of damage. He fell to the ground. Three hearts left. Then, he came face to face with another creeper. It exploded and he flew off the hill and started falling to his sure death. Then, as he was about to hit the ground, a final thought raced through his mind. His family. What would they do. They would be forced to move out, and what would become of them after that. He hit the ground and died. Instantly.

A day later Mrs. Blockerson got worried. She sold half of everything they owned to hire two miners to try and find him. Eventually, they found his temporary camp and figured out the creeper explosions. They returned his remains and belongings to the family. Months later they were kicked out of their house. They moved out of the city and made a little tiny house in the middle of nowhere. The wife fell into a deep depression and died 3 months later. The son grew up and became a miner like his father. He did what his father wanted to do, explore a cave and find millions of diamonds, but died when a zombie pushed him into a lava pool. He was only 17 years old. Nothing happened after that.

The items that were supposed to be placed on the wrong side was a lock, wood pick, stone pick, gold pick, diamond shovel, iron shovel, bucket of lava, creeper head, zombie head, emerald, steak, glowstone, diamond sword, and a beacon.

The team successfully earned 800 diamonds for getting at least 16 out of 28 right.

There was also a hidden exemption in one of the chests and Music3_0 found it.

Tick Tick Boom: The other eight players were taken to a hillside, where inside, a time bomb set to explode in ten minutes. The players were told that to defuse it, they must cut four differently colored wires in the correct sequence. To find the correct wires, they had to go to four locations; a wooden structure, an abandoned castle, the Magpie Mines, and the ship dock. The correct answer to each corresponded to a color, which they were to then give to cut, but in the correct sequence. If they solved all four puzzles, they'd have the correct wires and the bomb could be defused, adding 2,000 diamonds to the pot. The puzzles included:

  • Ship Dock: 8 players had to stand on 8 pressure plates to reveal the color orange.
  • Magpie Mines: In Magpie mines, the puzzle stated: If a man can paint a room in four hours and another man can paint the exact same room in two hours, how long would i take them together? Their options were 80, 120, and 150, each with a color. If correctly solved, 80 minutes would be the correct answer, with the color red as the correct answer.
  • Castle: In the castle, the puzzle confronted them said a puzzle involving logic and reason, and if solved correct, the color given would have been purple.
  • Wooden Structure: If found, a sign stated "#FFFF00" meaning yellow in web colors.

They ultimately cut the wrong wires and cause the bomb to explode immediately. An explosion of smoke signified their failure. Afterward, Yoshi informed them that the answer was in front of them the whole time - the manufacturer name on the bomb canister was PYRO Explosives, Inc. - that's pink, yellow, red, and orange wires in succession.

Ready, Set, Cook!: The group had to whip up a series of food items by gathering items though out Valgirn's farm. They had to make 64 Cookies(worth 300 diamonds), 16 pork chops(worth 300 diamonds), 16 Cakes (worth 700 diamonds), 16 bread (200 diamonds), 16 baked potato (200 diamonds), and 32 Pumpkin pies (worth 400 diamonds) under eight minutes. The team had to figure out that the eggs were in the farm house. The team only completed making 16 pieces of bread and 16 baked potatoes, which in turn, gained the team 600 diamonds.

Penalty: In Ready, Set, Cook!, teams were instructed to replant all that they broke, they forgot to replant 63 plants, each causing the team to lose 10 diamonds. In the end, the team lost all diamonds made in that game and lost 30 diamonds from the pot.

SonicTornado 4th player executed

Talk It Out: The group had to come to a consent to give an exemption to someone, which means, they are exempt from getting eliminated that episode. The team had difficulties coming to a consent and could mot get everyone to agree in the allotted time of 10 minutes. The team would have lost 1,500 diamonds if they couldn't have come to a consent, and would have gained 1,500 if they did. The team could not come to a consent and lost 1,500 diamonds from the pot.

Death Of Me: The team was brought to an area of flat stone are with a stone brick machine. They were told to choose who do they think would win the competition. They chose Music3_0. Everyone else got put into a cell with a lever in front of it. The rules of the game are game changing. Since Music3_0 was chosen as the possible winner, he was put in control of the whole game. He had to pull levers to drop people into lava pits, however, he had to choose the person who would have been eliminated last episode (since it was a non-elimination last episode). If he did it in his first try, the team would earn 1,000 diamonds and that player would be eliminated. If he did it in his second try, the team would earn 500 diamonds and that player would be eliminated. If he did it in his last try, the team would earn 100 diamonds and that player would be eliminated. However, if the person outside of the cells did not identify the person, the person would remain anonymous until the end of the series and would be exempt from this episode and next episode.

In a stroke of luck, Music3_0 chose SonicTornado as the person and he dropped and a red firework, instead of green, launched and that meant that he chose the right person, and SonicTornado was eliminated on the spot, the team gained 3,000 diamonds, and the quiz was not taken.

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words: The remaining players were told that they were to be sent on a scavenger hunt and if found, 8,000 diamonds could be found. They had 30 minutes to find the location of the treasure with only limited hints. The three locations they were given were: (1) The answer to S3E5C10, (2) The building near 7/15/14 1st van behind the chair, and (3) LAST CALLS FOR FLIGHT 101! The first clue led to the Fyfe Manor in Inchmuir and inside the theater, there was a renamed paper with a link to a picture of the word saying "break the wood". The second clue led to the Y9 courthouse and there, the link led to a picture saying "under the glass". The third clue led to the International Airport, where the link has a picture of "@ mole manor". If put correctly, the would break a piece of wood in the back of the tree, finding 8,000 diamonds. The group found all the clues, but did not have enough time to find the block and break it. The team did not earn the 8,000 diamonds.

The two other players are asked the same questions, and must try to match the answers given by the hidden player. After each response, the two players go either left or right in a fork in the road. If they answer all three questions correctly, they will successfully guide themselves through the village and find the hidden diamonds. If they make just one wrong answer, they will go down the wrong fork in the road and will not find the diamonds. Each correct path earned them 2,000 diamonds. This took place at Big Lake.
