Steps of Knowledge

The nastiest, deadliest gunslinger in the Old West was Billy the Kid. He was as wild as a pole cat and meaner than a snake, and his temper was quicker than his trigger finger. Some say he killed more than 21 men— one for every year that he lived. Once, he shot a man in a hotel room for snoring too loud. He would shoot bullets at your feet just to make you dance. One day, he rode into Lincoln, Nebraska, looking for trouble. He found it, in the form of Pat Garrett, one of the lawmen west of the Mississippi.

"Boys," he said to his posse, "who wants to come along?"

Nobody did. They were to scared to go, so he went after Billy alone. Sure enough, when Pat rode back in town, he was wearing Billy's yellow snakeskin boots, and nobody ever heard tell of Billy again. They say the sheriff kept those boots until he died, then they disappeared.

Temple Games

The Green Monkeys and Adam and Stacy. The Purple Parrots are Kelly and Tony.

Target Practice (Trapeze Grid)

According to legend, Billy the Kid was a crack-shot, and he got that way by lots of target practice. Adam and Tony's task in this game also involves target practice. When Kirk gave the signal, each player had to place a boulder between his feet, grab the trapeze, swing out over the grid, and drop the boulder into one of the nine grid holes then swing back, grab another boulder and do it again. The player to fill all nine grid holes or the player to fill the most grid holes in 60 seconds won. Tony beat Adam 6-4, awarding Tony a half pendant of life.

Bucking Broncos (Squirting Statue)

Even the best outlaws' horses could have a bad day, and Billy the Kid's was no exception. Before Stacy and Kelly was Billy the Kid's horse whose sense of direction was never that good. When Kirk gave the signal, each player had to shinny up the horse's back. Once at the top, she then had to turn the horse's head around so she's facing forward then run back down and start again. Of course, bucking broncos hiss and snort, so they had to hold on tight on their way up. If either player's feet touched the ground, she would have to go back and start again. The player to turn her horse's head around the most times in 60 seconds won. Kelly beat Stacy 5-1, awarding Kelly a half pendant of life.

Knock off the Posse (Slingshot Bowling)

When you're an outlaw, some days you have to battle the posse. Here, both teams had to knock down the targets on the wall before them just like how Billy the Kid would knock off the posse. When Kirk gave the signal, each player had to load his/her team's slingshot and launch a ball at the targets on the wall. Then, it would be his/her partner's turn to launch a ball at the targets. The team to knock down all four of their targets or the team to knock down the most targets in 60 seconds won. Both teams tied with two targets knocked down (they had trouble getting the ones on the sides), but the Purple Parrots had two full pendants total, sending them to Olmec's temple in search of the snakeskin boots.

Temple Run

Kelly was going in the temple first, and she decided to go up into the Crypt where she immediately hit a Temple Guard. She then tried all three books, swung across the Pit, had to jump down, and entered the Laser Light Room. She tried climbing upward into Medusa's Lair before even attempting the room's objective, but it would not matter; the second Temple Guard was hidden in there, and Kelly was taken out with 2:13 left on the clock. Tony went into the Crypt, jumped down into the Pit, jogged across the bottom floor and entered the Mine Shaft with roughly a minute left. He crawled into the elevator, but changed his mind and tried the diagonal passage leading directly into the Shrine of the Silver Monkey. Good choice; the door opened and he grabbed the Snakeskin Boots with 52 seconds left. He raced right across the top floor and when he entered the Pit, he grabbed onto the rope with one hand for stability as he jumped down. He entered the Ledges with about 30 seconds left and went down into the boarded-up Cave of Sighs entrance at first. After realizing his mistake, he found the exit, crawled out of the temple and unknowingly set a record.
