When I was a child on the American west coast, my circle of friends would always say "times!" to suspend play and talk out of character, or otherwise suspend the rules of a game. For example, if we were playing tag, one of us could say "times!" if we got hurt, and the game would stop for a moment.
I assumed that this was a ubiquitous thing, but I was surprised to see just not that neither Merriam-Webster nor Wiktionary documents this usage of the word.
Is this an oversight, or is this a really isolated usage?
