{{|Lion|Read it now!}}

Lion is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Gold series on April 29, 1981. It is also an unlockable minigame in Game & Watch Gallery 3.



Lions are on the loose, forcing the lion tamers to use chairs to keep the lions in their cage. Each time the player keeps a lion in a cage, they earn two points. As the game progresses, the lions will move faster. If a lion escapes, the player gets a miss. At 200 and 500 points, any misses the player has will be cleared. When the player gets three misses, they receive a Game Over. Game A has two lions, while Game B has three.
