The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa is the 29th episode of Legends of the Hidden Temple.

The Moat

The first player from each team would cross the moat by pulling himself or herself hand-over-hand on the overhead rope; once they were across, their partner would toss them a bundle of rope which their teammate would catch— once the first player had the rope, they would coil it once around the base of the pole and brace themself so their partner could cross in the same method (except they would walk on the underwater lower rope).

The Steps of Knowledge

In 1532, high in Andean South America, two royal brothers argued over who should become the next Great Inca. Their names were Huascar and Atahualpa. Their argument grew so fierce it turned into a painful civil war known as The Inca War of Succesion which lasted five years. Atahualpa finally defeated his brother, but the war left the Empire very weak. Soon after, the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizzaro came to Cuzco, the capital city of ancient Peru, and captured Atahualpa and his subjects. Pizzaro offered to release Atahualpa from prison if the Incas would fill one room full of golden trinkets, and two rooms full of silver artifacts. Even though Atahulpa was granted the ransom, Pizzaro double-crossed Atahualpa and strangled him. The Spainiards melted the gold and silver trinkets and sent their scraps back to Spain, except for a golden jaguar, which ended up in the Treasure Room.
