Hey guys, to pass the time, we could try to finish these jigsaw puzzles on the floor.

"Puzzling Mysteries" is the seventh episode of Battle for Dream Island. It was published on July 1, 2010. In this episode, another Squashy Grape is finally eliminated, and no one is up for elimination.


Before the intro

The episode starts off with the competitors spinning basketballs on their fingers/feet. Pen starts with spinning one basketball, and Eraser impresses everyone by spinning three. Golf Ball is shown that she can spin seven, much to Snowball's jealousy. Eraser asks Needle how many she can spin, calling her "Needy". The clip is played back and slowed down several times for emphasis. This frustrates Needle, and she then slaps Eraser afterward. The Announcer then announces that it is time for Cake at Stake.

Cake at Stake

Needle, Ice Cube, and Coiny were up for elimination. The Announcer said “Needy”, before she slapped him to the Cake at Stake area. A key-lime pie was used for the cake, again. There was a total of 18 votes. Ice Cube got one vote. A long pause of silence occurs, which Coiny points out. The Announcer then points out that Coiny has never spoken once at his Cake at Stakes, and that he was just contributing to the silence. Coiny says that the Announcer should be glad that he was contributing instead of doing what he wanted to do. As Announcer tries to speak, Coiny shushes him, telling him that they had to contribute to the silence. The Announcer then calls Needle "Needy" and gets out of the way, causing Needle to slap Coiny instead, who is sent flying off into the horizon.

The Announcer then says that Coiny had gotten five votes, while Needy had gotten twelve (reduced to six with her Win Token). She slaps Announcer again. Even though Needle had her votes cut in half, she is still eliminated. The Announcer says that needle has slapped exactly 13 times, then a montage shows that Needle slapped people exactly thirteen times before she was eliminated, noting that thirteen is an unlucky number. Before being flung into the TLC, Coiny asks Needle why she didn't like being called "Needy", but Needle is flung to the TLC before she could explain.

The Announcer then realizes that the TLC wouldn't shut completely all the way, and Pencil points out that the carrying capacity was six, and although there were six people inside, Spongy was much larger than the average contestant. So, Announcer then announces that no one would be eliminated in the next episode and that the winners would get an eliminated contestant onto their team.

Icon Contestant Votes WT Total votes Vote Change
IceCube TeamIcon Ice Cube 1 No 1 1 more than last time
Coiny TeamIcon Coiny 5 No 5 5 more than last time
Needle TeamIcon Needle 12 (6) Yes 12 12 more than last time


Eraser asks what the contest is, which Announcer responds to by telling everyone to go into a single-room building. When everyone is inside, Announcer locks the door, trapping everyone inside. Bubble asks if they would starve to death in there, and Speaker announces that they would find out after the break.

After a random commercial advertising Bubble Transformer plays, everyone is shown freaking out. The Announcer states that there is a way out, and Pencil calls him a liar. Leafy then explains that they could solve a jigsaw puzzle to pass the time, which Announcer says is the seventh contest, and that no one could leave until they completed their puzzle.

Each jigsaw puzzle had 9 pieces. All of the Squishy Cherries' pieces were upside-down, which no one had noticed yet. Snowball quickly completes the Squashy Grapes' puzzle, and their team begins to leave. Announcer stops them, as everybody starts freaking out again. The Announcer tells them to choose one of the Cherries to be on their team. Everyone but Coiny and Ice Cube chooses Firey. Coiny complains, stating that he hates Firey, and Firey is upset that he had to be on Coiny's team. Pencil and Match begin gossiping about what Eraser did in Take the Plunge Part 2, which angers him.

Pencil then finally realizes that all the pieces were upside-down, and Announcer says that the Cherries couldn't leave until they have finished their puzzle.


The episode ends with Pen finally connecting two of the puzzle pieces together at the night. Some cheer for him while others jeer.

Deleted scene

Originally, the Announcer was going to allow each team to gain an eliminated contestant to join their team. Leafy and Snowball decide to re-recruit Spongy, asking each other if he would like that. The Announcer misinterprets this as choosing Woody, and brings him back. After that, the Squishy Cherries immediately pick Blocky to rejoin.

  • This is the second time a commercial was in an episode and a Squashy Grapes' member was eliminated, the first time being in Episode 2.
  • This is the first episode that has no Cake at Stake theme.
  • This is the first appearance of Yellow Face and his commercial.
  • This is the first time the voter's names were shown.
  • Loser first appears as a yellow crystal block. However, he would not make any speaking role until 7 years later.
    • There is also a recommended character, Winner, who originated from the blue dust pile from this episode in the same scene.
  • This is the first time that a contestant used a Win Token on elimination.
  • There were 2 scenes that were ultimately cut from the episode, according to the storyboard. The first was about The TLC being changed to a smaller size to only 4 contestants by accident and how 2 contestants would rejoin, and how Spongy would rejoin by Leafy and Snowball, and which the announcer heard wrong and thought of Woody, while the second was about Blocky rejoining by Pen and Eraser.


  • This episode has a minor audio lagging issue.
  • At Cake at Stake, when there was an awkward silence, Coiny has three arms.
  • Ice Cube's cake has the cream on top of it, but when it shows the remaining cake it has the cream, while there was only one cream.
  • When Bubble says that everyone will starve to death in the room, Eraser only has 1 leg. Nobody notices that the blank space Bubble has is blocking the leg. However, Bubble moved so quickly.
