We used fainites when I was a child in Kent, then we moved to Australia where they used Barleys (pronounced with the emphasis on a long eees at the end) According to the Opie's books, Barleys is commonly used in Scotland. According to my children (Leicestershire) they don't have a crossing fingers 'time-out', but have to go to a particular place and say 'den'.
