The website I'm using to count (see the link in the first posting of this thread) says that with four, shi or yon can be used in the one's column, but yon must be used for any other digit'c column, e.g. 40, 400. Is that true?

I'm trying to do my Japanese counting from info on a website. Should I be combining the numbers into one "word"?
THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING, RIORIOGIRL!
Also, whenever there are at least two of the same digit in a number, the player gets to/should give a little Spark goodie to someone on the Everything Japanese team. E.g., 10 = no goodie, 11 = goodie, etc. In theory, this will help the team get to know each other a little, as well as having fun.

Counting to 3 in Okinawa -LOL! Somehow I didn't imagine square dancing in Okinawa... We had to do square dancing in elementary and junior high school phy ed. The boys always hated it, but I thought it was fun!
I'm glad you like the website! I also added a "cheat" website to the Anime/Manga Alphabet game. I wanted these games to be easy fun, not work, and I thought if I had trouble knowing something, maybe others did too.
6 - roku (I had to check out the website after three...I only learned the first three when I was stationed in Okinawa at the Navy Hospital....
Weird story - when I first got to Okinawa, I was newly engaged, and my hubby-to-be was a square dance caller....so, I took square dancing while I was there (yes, even in Okinawa). The only reason I remembered the first three numbers was that the caller/instructor used to count out some of the steps using the first three....ichi, ni, san.....that was as far as I ever got.
Fall down seven times, get up eight. - Japanese proverb
For this games, each person posts the next number in order with its Japanese name, e.g., “1 - ichi.” If the number contains two or three of the same number you give a SparkGoodie to someone on the team. This will also help us get to know each other a little better.
For example: if you post an 11, 22, 121, 222, etc. you would give a SparkGoodie to a member of this team. 1-10, 12-21, 123, 298, etc. means NO SparkGoodie.
