Strait of Gibraltar   

  Reach the end of the bridge
  Fall off into the net below
  Watch out for the cannonfire

The contestant has to cross a narrow unstable bridge to the other side, while carrying a golden ball.
While they're on the bridge, guards will fire balls at the contestants, from a cannon, to try and knock them off.

Played   70  times;  in episodes:
5-14, 17, 18, 23, 24, 26, 28, 29, 32, 35, 36, 38, 44, 46-49, 52, 54, 56, 59, 61-63, 65, 68, 71, 73, 74, 78-81, 83-85, 97-99, 104, 106, 108-111, 113-116, 118, 119, 121-124, 126, 130, 133

5 The First Bridge
The bridge is just 30cm wide. For this, and the next seven appearances of the game, there is no ball to carry.
6+ The Second Bridge
The bridge is now 50cm wide.
8+ Double-Barreled
A second cannon is added, doubling the number of balls fired at contestants.
9 & 10 Rocks On
Three fake rocks are fixed to the top of the bridge, which contestants must climb around.
The rocks are bigger in episode 10.
12 & 14 Rocking Up and Down
Fake rocks are now attached to the underside of the bridge, as well as on top, to stop contestants from hanging underneath.
13, 17+ The Golden Ball
The rocks are removed.
From now the first cannon belongs to the General - from which he (or the contestant's child/partner in Family and Couple episodes) fires a ball that the contestant must catch, and carry across the bridge. Contestants must take this ball with them to the other side to win the game.
If a contestant drops the ball they can go back and catch another.

 BGM:  "Combat!" Theme

The bridge is 25 metres long.
In some early games, the guards would shake the bridge to try and topple the contestants.
