DUCK-DUCK-GOOSE

THE GAME BEGINS WITH THE PLAYERS SITTING DOWN IN A
CIRCLE. ONE PERSON IS CHOSEN AS "IT." "IT" WALKS
AROUND THE CIRCLE TAPPING THE PLAYERS ON THE HEAD AND
HE SAYS "DUCK, DUCK" UNTIL HE DECIDES TO TAP A PLAYER
AND SAY "GOOSE." THIS PLAYER THEN HAS TO TRY TO
CATCH "IT." IF "IT" RUNS AROUND THE CIRCLE TWICE
AND IS ABLE TO SIT DOWN IN THE EMPTY SPACE, THEN
THE PLAYER THAT HE CHOSE IS "IT." IF "IT" GETS
TAGGED, THEN HE REMAINS IT.
