Fox and Geese

One player is chosen to be fox, another to be gander. The remaining

players all stand in single file behind the gander, each with his hands

upon the shoulders of the one next in front. The gander tries to

protect his flock of geese from being caught by the fox and to do this

stretches out his arms and dodges around in any way he sees fit to

circumvent the efforts of the fox. Only the last goose in the line may

be tagged, unless the line be very long, then the last five or ten

players may be tagged, as decided beforehand. It will be seen that the

geese all may co-operate with the gander by doubling and redoubling

their line to prevent the fox from tagging the last goose. Should the

fox tag the last goose or one of the last five or ten, if that be

permissible, that goose becomes fox and the fox becomes gander.
