Actually, she changed the rules because the one game they played took most of their lunch break, and because Shizune personally likes faster-paced games. She also says she doesn't like chess, normally, because there's no luck at all. "Luck in games is good because it gives everyone a chance." And the bell does ring about one minute after they finish the speed game, too.Oddball wrote:What she doesn't grasp here is that just interacting with another person is taxing Hanako's resources. Hanako is pushing herself just to be able to play a game with her. Playing games is one of the few things Hanako does that she can enjoy and almost feel like a normal person doing.
What happens here is that Hanako goes for it and then Shizune reaches out and changes the rules so she can crush her anyway.
Also, Shizune had won the first game anyway - and she was more than a graceful winner.
