Hi Viv,

Basic concept of this game is -  A group of players sit in a circle, facing inward, while another player, who is "it", walks around tapping or pointing to each player in turn, calling each a "duck" until finally calling one a "goose". The "goose" then rises and tries to tag "it", while "it" tries to return to and sit where the "goose" had been sitting. If "it" succeeds, the "goose" becomes "it" and the process begins again. If the "goose" tags "it", the "goose" may return to his or her previous spot and the original "it" restarts the process.

Think we called it tag. 

I know people have complained about A to Z but it does get the old grey matter giong.
