You Can't Save the Ball   

  Catch the ball in the bowl
  Miss the ball
  It's impossible to know when and where the ball will drop

To start the game, the contestant has to hit a ball into the top of a giant pachinko machine. As soon as they've hit the ball they must pick up a bowl and run down a flight of stairs to the side of the machine.
Now the contestant has to wait on a narrow pathway at the bottom, between the machine and a mud pit, for the ball to fall out. The aim is to catch the ball in their bowl. As they can't see where the ball is getting knocked around too, the General shouts out directions ("left" or "right") to help guide the contestant.
The ball will drop out over the mud pit. The contestant must dive for it, and catch the ball safely in their bowl to win the game.

After the first appearance, a small clear lip was added to the bottom of the machine, so contestants get a glimpse of the ball just before it falls.
In the Family special version of the game; the children hit the ball into the machine and stay up the top to shout directions, while the parents run down the stairs to try and catch the ball.
