Mystical Mud Pit / Mud Ball
Played: 20 times
First appeared: Ep 32 ¦ Last appeared: Ep 76

The contestant starts behind a set of saloon doors, at the end of a giant pit of mud. A football is then fired into the air, over the mud, from a cannon.

As soon as the ball is shot, the contestant has to run out into the mud pit and try to catch it. The wet mud makes moving quickly very difficult.

If the contestant catches the ball they win the game; but if they miss it, or it bounces out of their hands, they lose.

Ep# Variation
Contestants play together in pairs - either can catch the ball.
50   Double Shot
Two cannons fire a ball - contestants only need to catch one.
70   Big Hands
Contestants must attempt to catch wearing big foam hands.
73   Rain
A hose rains water down - making it harder to see the ball.
76   Balloon Skirt
Players wear a skirt of balloons, making it harder to move.
