The Digging Game is a recurring mini-game in The Legend of Zelda series.
Location and Rules
Village of Outcast Digging Game
Held by the Digging Game Keeper, the first appearance of the Digging Game is south of the Village of Outcasts in A Link to the Past. The price to play is 80 Rupees, with the main prize being a Piece of Heart; however, Link can find Rupees and stock items as well.
Heart-Pounding Gravedigging Tour
In Ocarina of Time, the Heart-Pounding Gravedigging Tour is played by Link in the Kakariko Village Graveyard as a child. It is only available from 6 P.M. to 9 P.M. Dampé will dig upon any plot of dirt along his route through the graveyard when asked by the young hero, charging 10 Rupees per dig. Prizes include Rupees and a Piece of Heart, although sometimes there may be nothing to uncover upon digging. When Link is an Adult, the tour is closed due to Dampe's death and the sign reads "Closed until a new gravekeeper can be found".

Phantom Hourglass's Harrow Island allows Link to dig ten Treasures for a fee of 50 Rupees. Rupees, Rupoors, Treasure Maps, and Lucky Lee are commonly found. Once ten treasures have been dug up, the Gossip Stone on the island asks Link to leave. If Link continues to dig, it will warn him to stop digging. If Link digs a couple more times, he will be fined 100 Rupees. If he digs again after that, he will lose all of his Rupees. If he still does not stop, he will be banned from the Digging Game. Link must pay three hundred Rupees to be allowed to play again.
