The game starts with the group sitting in a circle. One of the players moves around the circle touching the other player's head and saying "duck" each time. Whenever he/she wants,he/she touches someone's head saying "goose". Then, the person who was touched stands up and chases the first one, trying to catch him/her before he/she arrives to the empty place and sit in it.
If the first player sits, the second one stars the game again. If the second player is catching he/she has to sit in the middle of the circle, "the saucepan", and wait there until other player is catched.
