DUCK ON A ROCK

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





This game is also called "Boulder Up." It is not customary to "count
out" to decide it. For this game usually some one suggests, "Let's
play Duck on a Rock," and then every one scurries around to find an
appropriate stone, or "duck." As fast as they are found the fact is
announced by the cry, "My one duck," "My two duck," etc. The last boy
to find a stone is "drake," or "it."

The drake is larger than the ducks and is placed on an elevated
position such as a boulder. Then from a specified distance ducks
attempt to hit the drake and to knock him from his position. If they
miss they are in danger of being tagged by the drake, as it is his
privilege to tag any player who is not in possession of his duck. If,
however, the drake is knocked from his perch, the ducks have the
privilege of rushing in and recovering their stones, but unless they
do so before the drake replaces his stone on the rock they may be
tagged. The first one tagged becomes "it" and the drake becomes a
duck.
