I haven't played Hanako's game with the tiles since I was in early elementary school... and that was over 25 years ago. :|

I have been doing stuff like this since I was in elementary. Mostly it is done with stairs, but I avoid cracks like the plague

Oh, I had an even crazier game when I was younger. Left foot is "yellow" and right foot is "blue." If one foot touches a tile or other part of the ground, that tile or such would also be "yellow" or "blue." Nothing that was already one color could be next to something else of the same color. Go with it.

Of course, sometimes three things would come together and I'd get stuck, so I invented "green" by using both feet at the same time. Needless to say, I usually got some funny looks.... lol.

Yep, used to play this all the time when I was in elementary, still play it now in high school, but only when the halls are clear, trying to play this kind of game with a busy hallway is just asking for someone to step on your feet. :lol:

Taken from a real conversation:
"God it's so boring in here... What are you doing?"
"437. 501 if you count the tiles that are cracked in half."
"Ok..."
This reminds me of when my friends and I would tried to count the holes in the ceiling tiles, thousands upon thousands... it was just playing the game... could never win.

Gotta admit, I do it whenever it's possible. I also go out of my way to not step on cracks in the sidewalk. :D

I think about this variant when I need to use a public bathroom. I guess I have shy kidney syndrome unless it's definitely time. It's really jarring when the walls and floor have more than a two-color scheme.

...not *quite* with the tile game, no.

But up untill I was about 14/15 or so, I'd play some sort of game involving avoiding all the cracks in the pavement, or stepping on the edges of tiles or whatever when I was somewhere which had them.

No idea why it stopped, or indeed why it started, in all honesty. I'm 20 now, so maybe its just something you stop doing as you get older? Hard to explain.
If any of you understand what the hell my name is about/referring to, I will love you forever.
