    The Minigames can be found in the Narutimate Road Mode (in other words, the 
    RPG mode). Each are available only at specific times during the course
    of the game, and the locations may change as well. Generally the minigames
    will only be available in Chapter 1 and 4 and only some in Chapter 2.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2. Minigames

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.2 Gai's Posings
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Characters: Naruto VS Gai 
    Location: Chuunin Examination Stadium 
    
    Controls: D-pad, Button-pad
    Objective: Win 5 out of 8 rounds
    
    Description: Take note of the commands that Gai does, then mimic them by 
    pressing the appropriate commands on your controller. The game ends when
    Naruto has successfully mimicked Gai in 5 matches.
    
    Reward: 8000 Ryou - Normal Win
            10000 Ryou - Special Win
    
    Special Win: Win 5 rounds straight without failing once.
    
    Strategy: Unless you have a good memory, this mini-game can get a little 
              difficult. Fortunately, the order of the buttons comes out slowly
              which should give you some time to jot them down on a piece of 
              paper. Otherwise, just try to remember. The game starts at two
              commands and maxes out at 6 commands.
    
    Misc: Special Win 3 times to get the Hint Scroll
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.3 Gai's Handstand Race
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Characters: Naruto VS Gai
    Location: Heroes' Monument
    
    Controls: Button-pad ([] button and O button)
    Objective: Beat Gai to the finish line.
    
    Description: Alternately press the [] and O buttons to make Naruto move along
    the course. The faster you alternate, the faster the speed. There are two laps
    in a match and the game ends when Gai or Naruto cross the finish line after 
    those two laps.
    
    Reward: 11000 Ryou - Normal Win
            20000 Ryou - Special Win
    
    Special Win: Finish the course in less than 1:08:00
    
    Strategy: Now this is a difficult minigame. Gai is pretty fast in his own 
              right, so you're just gonna have to be faster. Make sure to keep
              your rhytum going as it is easy to lose track of what you're 
              pressing. Also there are nin-dogs that will try and obstruct your
              path to the finish line. There are two kinds of situations 
              involving the dogs, the RED and the BLUE. The RED situation is when
              there is red text when the text pops up when you are approaching a
              dog. Stop before the dog so you don't get hit. If you are hit, you 
              lose time by being on the ground. The BLUE situation is when there 
              is blue text instead. Hurry and pass the dog before it attacks. 
              Depending on the situation, these dogs can help you if you time it 
              that Gai gets hit by them. If you don't get hit, and manage to stay 
              ahead of Gai, it is very possible to get a Special Win.
    
    Misc: Special Win 3 times to get the Hint Scroll
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.4 Shikamaru's Shadow Imitations
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Characters: Naruto VS Shikamaru
    Location: Chuunin Examination Stadium
    
    Controls: Button-pad
    Objective: Win 5 out of 8 rounds
    
    Description: Take note of the commands that Shikamaru does, then mimic them by 
    pressing the appropriate commands on your controller. The game ends when
    Naruto has successfully mimicked Shikamaru in 5 matches.
    
    Reward: 5000 Ryou - Normal Win
            8000 Ryou - Special Win
    
    Special Win: Win 5 rounds straight without failing once.
    
    Strategy: The same as Gai's minigame, but a lot easier since the only things
              you have to remember are the buttons. If you still need to, you can
              take note of the commands to be sure of your victory.
    
    Misc: Special Win 3 times to get the Hint Scroll
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.5 Tanzakugai-machi Slots
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Characters: Naruto
    Location: Tanzakugai-machi
    
    Controls: [] button, A button, O button, D-pad (Down only)
    Objective: Gain as much points as possible
    
    Description: Press down to start the slots. Press the [], A and O buttons to
    stop the left, center and right reels respectively. If there is a match, then
    you gain coins. These coins can then be exchanged for money (Ryou).
    
    Exchange Rate: 1000 Ryou = 50 Coins
    
    Winning Combinations: 3 Snakes - 3 coins            
                          3 Frogs - 3 coins
                          3 Slugs - 3 coins
    
    Bonus: Triple 7s = 15 bonus reels with 15 or 20 coin gain + 20 coins
           Triple Naruto = 20 bonus reels with 50 or 100 coin gain + 100 coins
    
    Note: Bonus mode always makes the reels match
    
    Reward: Coins X 20 = Payout in Ryou
    
    Strategy: Ok, this game is the best way to earn cool hard cash as the maximum
              payoff of this game, given the initial bet of 1000 Ryou is 198980
              Ryou. There is a maximum of 9999 coins so any excess over that is 
              lost. It is advisable to cash in when you reach that number. 
    
              The main point of the game is to get the bonus reels, especially the
              big bonus as it can give you around 1000 coins easily. Luck is the
              dominant factor of this game so it can either take a short while or
              a long time to get these bonuses. During the bonus reels, one of the
              reels will be highlighted. This means that you must stop this reel 
              first or else you will not be able to get the maximum number of 
              coins for that particular set. There are two sounds that will tell
              you if you got the high or low bonus. A normal CHING sound means 
              the low bonus, while the BAMBOO sound signifies the high bonus.
    
    Misc: This minigame is a requirement to get one of Tsunade's jutsus. The coin
          requirement is 3000.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.6 Sakura's Tree Climbing
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Characters: Naruto
    Location: Konoha Forest
    
    Controls: D-pad (Left and Right)
    Objective: Complete the Course in 250 seconds
    
    Description: Climb to the top of tree. Use the D-pad to dodge the obstacles in 
    your way. Get the speed-up items to increase your speed.
    
    Reward: 15000 Ryou - Normal Win
            30000 Ryou - Special Win
    
    Special Win: Complete the course in less than 1:20:00
    
    Strategy: Other than the Slots minigame, this is the other fast way to earn
              cash, Especially with the Special Win.
    
              The game is basically an obstacle course. You start at the bottom
              and move up from there. Use the Left and Right buttons to avoid
              the various branches and stumps in the way and to get the speed-up
              items. The layout of the tree changes every game, but basically
              the bottom is fairly uncluttered, while the middle and top areas
              are very cluttered. Also, getting hit twice is enough to disqualify
              you from getting the Special win, so presence of mind and quick
              reflexes are a must. The best method to dodge the obstacles is by
              using the d-pad and not the analog stick. Also, do the minigame
              many times to familiarize yourself with your reaction time and the
              patterns of obstacles that usually appear. Given some time, it will
              be easy to get the Special Win.
    
    Misc: Special Win 3 times to get the Hint Scroll

    3.  Others
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Hint Scrolls: There are 5 of these scrolls that are obtained by getting 
                  3 Special Wins in each of the 5 Konoha minigames. These 
                  scrolls give hints on how to get the special scrolls in
                  each stage.
