Last night, I was watching Survivor, but many other people were watching the presidential debate. As it turned out, it was a little difficult to tell which was which, because both contain strong elements of tribalism, loyalty, conflict, dominance, vows of integrity, and plenty more. Thus, I was driven to put together a little game, with the help of NPR's brilliant Multimedia team, in which you can try to match some of the evening's quotes to the contestants or contenders who spoke them.

So take yourself over to the game, and let me know how you did.
