Example games:

Two or more players (three players in this setup) each choose a color of little ninjas. Everyone tries to kill (knock down) other player(s)' little ninjas by taking turns to use the big ninja: you drop his head into the ninja castle at the center and he will jump back out to kill the little ninjas! Once a player's little ninjas are all killed, he is out of the game. The remaining players continue to take turns until the last survivor wins.

Two or more players (two players in this setup) all try to hit the blue ninjas and avoid the red ones. If a red ninja is knocked down, the kill doesn't count and all red and blue ninjas hit in this turn must be put back up. At the end the person having killed the most blue ninjas wins.

Two or more players (two players in this setup) each choose a color of ninjas and try to indirectly kill them by hitting the red ninjas first. The red ninjas are put back after being used each time. A player wins once all ninjas of the color he/she picked have been killed. The remaining players can continue until only one is left.
