1ups, Extra Lives, Free Men...

What do you call them?
I typically call them extra lives, or 1ups. Though in Mega Man, I call them Mega Men. From my recollection most of my family typically calls them Free men.

I call them simply "lives" but I have heard free man. I think "free man" is the equivalent of calling a level a "board". only a few people do it, and it'd because they heard someone else in particular say it.

I normally call them "extra lives", unless it's Mario where I'll call them "1-Ups." I have never ever heard the term "free man" before, so I would actually pause the game to stare at the person who told me to "grab that free man!"

I just call them "lives" for every game I play, as far as I can remember. I've heard "free man" before but I was under the impression that it's outdated and was only used in older games. Rarely at that.

I usually call them 'levens', which means 'lives' in Dutch.
But in English I call them 'lives' or 'stocks'.

My family and I used the term "Free Men" when I was younger so that's what I had adapted to calling them. But now I also call them lives.

I call them "lives". Or I'll just say I got a life.
Never really heard of other names other than '1ups'.
