The internet has been left divided over the name of a timeless childhood game that involves knocking on a stranger's door and then running away...
And people just don't know what to think!
Scroll on to hear some of the crazy names for this iconic childhood staple...
Now, we've all played it... right?
The game that involves running up to a stranger's house and knocking on their door before running away as fast as you can?
It's a staple in the majority of childhoods...
And it certainly brought the most mischievous of fun!
Of course, being on the receiving end of the game isn't fun at all...
But for children, it's entertainment gold.
It seems as if the game remains to be just as popular as it did back when we were children...
Which, for many of us, was quite a long time ago!
But it turns out that in many different parts of the world, the game goes by several different names...
And one curious Twitter user has decided to get to the bottom of what the game is actually called once and for all.
Writing on Twitter, they asked, "When you were younger what did you call it when you knock on someone's door and run away?"

I’m from Middlesex and we called it knock granny out of bed— Lynne 132637 (@lynne132637) April 12, 2021
In Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, it was always Knock Down Ginger— Richard Furness (@reFurness) April 12, 2021
I thought it was knock door ginger, same part of the world, but definitely ginger anyway. The word in the game, not me, not that there's anything wrong in being ginger.— TechNoodles (@NoodlesTech) April 12, 2021
I'll stop now. 😜😂

Chap door runaway which was made more fun when we tied a rope around the handles of two facing doors in the close and both victims ende up playing tug of war with each other. 😬😬— john (@ginyedaur603) April 12, 2021
So, there you have it!
It seems as if the notorious childhood game doesn't actually have an official name!
What would you call it? Do you agree with any of the responses above?
