Does anyone here play the game, aptly titled 'Hot Lava', where the floor is considered to be lava, and you can't touch it. I haven't played it since i was like 9, but apparently some post-pubescent people play it, and it sounds like a really enjoyable thing. Nostalgia ftw? Thoughts?

I play it all the time. It's more of a phobia than a game, though.

Yeah, played that in primary school. It was called 'floor is lava' though.

Other classics included 'floor is water', and 'floor is quicksand'.

I played it. Daniel Tosh talked about it, too. He said its what poor people did to keep their kids busy...

Well, to be honest, someone on facebook joined a group involving the game, so then (like a good american) I went to wikipedia to enlighten myself on the topic, and then I brought it to the pit so as to maybe share common nostalgia.

I used to play a variation of that when I was a kid. Except that every 30 seconds the lava rose a meter and if a body part touched the lava it turned into metal and could not be used.

I have no idea how we got to the conclusion that contact with lava resulted in metal body parts.

We played a game similar to that on a playground.
Basically a ball tag, where there was one person trying to hit tag others by throwing the ball, thus making him/her the tagger.

And the ground was hot lava, and you had to stay on the various playground thingies like swings, benches, sandboxes, slides, you name it. If you touched the ground, you became tag.

The tagger wasn't allowed to move with the ball.

The targets were only allowed to defend themselves with their feet and heads, like in soccer.

EDIT: Does this game have a name?

I think I want to play this... who wishes to join me!?

The closest we had to this was a game called grounders where a person walked blindly around the playground trrying to tag somone, and if said tagger though someone was on the ground he/she yelled "gounders!" and if someone was on the ground they were it.

I loved this game. For some reason, when we were little, my aunt used to tell us "The floor is lava" when we were supposed to go to bed. Only the younger cousins would avoid touching the floor (and yell at us cause "UR GONNA DIEEEEE NOOOO" "I have to go to the bathroom though" "IM TELLING")

Later, a no camping rule was introduced, meaning that you could only stay in the same place for a maximum of three throws.

T'was epic.
