The SS CMS is sliding into the sea! 
You can scavenge supplies to make life more comfortable

Tribes must buy at least 3 cards to continue in the game.

There are 10 tasks that can be completed this week to earn points. Each tribe can submit ONE of each task..

Your goal is to SPLIT UP THE TASKS AMONGST YOUR TRIBE to complete as many as you can. Some tasks can be completed by one tribe member (individual); some require more than one participant (groups).  

Week 2 tasks are worth 20 points. If it is a group task, it is worth 20 points per group member.  

Points for week 2 will be compiled and tallied on Friday, SEPT 16
