Two Goombas run across the player's field of vision. The camera backs up and changes angle slightly.
Players try to count the number of Goombas as accurately as possible by pressing for every Goomba they see. As Goombas run across the screen, they will sometimes be stacked on top of each other, similar to a Pokey. Buzzy Beetles might run across the screen, making it harder to count. It is important that only Goombas are counted. The player with the closest tally, or all players with the correct tally, wins.
All the Goombas are gathered in a field and jump one by one as they are counted, until all of them have been tallied.
