With a young puppy if you play red light, green light, after he's been crated for 4 or 5 hours, you are likely to have a puddle before you have a quiet puppy.
Red light, green light, can take a bit of time to play. To give you a general idea, my terrier mix knew that he was supposed to sit quietly for his meals, but every now and then he'd get really excited and forget so I'd play red light, green light. A couple times I played that game for upwards of 20 minutes before he was finally quiet the entire 5 seconds it took me to bend over and put the bowl down. He'd make a noise and I'd start a 5 second countdown before starting to bend over, he'd jump and make noise and I'd stand back up, start another 5 second count down..... every noise and the countdown was restarted. You can't expect a puppy, REALLY NEEDING TO PEE, to go through that.
