Daruma-san Fell Down   

  Be one of the first four to reach the goal
  Be seen moving or fall over
  The foam matting makes moving even tougher

A group of 10 contestants have to make their way up a ramp to reach the goal, but are only allowed to move when the guard at the top (usually Yousichi) isn't looking. This is made hard by the giant Daruma costumes they are wearing.
When the guard is facing the other way he chants "Daruma-san ga koronda" (meaning "The Daruma fell down"). This lets the contestants know how much time they have to move and when they should stop. As soon as the guard finishes the chant he turns around. Anyone he catches moving will be pushed down the hill and are out of the game.

28, 86 Snow Fall
The game is played on a large hill in the snow. 30 contestants take part at once.
98 Double Daruma
The couples' version of the game, in which the pairs are attached to each other by a rope tied around their ankles. This means that both contestants in the pair must make it up the hill without being seen moving; and also means that if one of them falls they'll take the other tumbling down with them.
109 Downward Daruma
The game is played downhill, with the goal at the bottom of the ramp.
