Theory Play (JP: Funtime) is a new feature is Theory World 3: Lesser and Greater, it can be used to play mini-games and play with your teammates.
The feature contains mini-games that are takes on classic playground games including Tag, Tug of War, Obstacle Course, etc. There are also original mini-games such as Invention Smash (where you must destroy as many of Beatrix Badwin's inventions within an amount of time), Balancing Acts (where you must balance your teammates on top of your head for as long as possible), and Musical Arms (similar to Musical Chairs, except that you must time your arm pose correctly when the music stops). Winning them earns the player food to raise the bloat meter, drinks to raise the quench meter, or toys and electronics to raise the fun meter.
Interaction with teammates includes chatting with them (whether done via the game system's microphone, keypad, or from a selection of pre-made quotes). You can raise the "favor" meter if your quote positively affects your teammate, but if not, it will decrease.
Touching a teammate allows players to massage one. They depend on the Likes and Dislikes of each teammate. If massaged on a negative spot (such as the back of Reicheru's neck or her kimono, Satoko's breasts, Ri Kon-Yung's sides, or Marie Lara-Rutter's right arm, especially when holding the Law plush, an unlockable item, Ri Min-Li's lapel pin and skirt, Ri Dae-Jung's ponytail, this will cause him to shoot you, causing damage and decrease friendship), however, the favor meter will decrease. If a female character is wearing a skirt or dress, flipping the skirt or dress to reveal the panties will decrease the favor meter.
