Duck duck Goose is a traditional children’s game that is international and can be found in many countries with local variations under a different names (i.e. "Le facteur n'est pas passé" or "Jeu du Mouchoir" in France, "Pesek" in Czech Republic, "Antoakyire" in Ghana, "Plumpssack" in Germany,
"Mam chusteczkę haftowaną" in Poland, "Hankachi-Otoshi" in Japan, etc.
In Jamaica, an "Extreme Duck Duck Goose" or "Yak Yak Moose" game is played. In this version, instead of the goose
chasing after the picker, he or she goes the opposite way and tries to intercept
the picker on the other side of the circle. Physical contact is allowed (but
not required); this usually involves wrestling and soft tackling. Throwing of
limbs or fists is never allowed, the intent is always to only temporarily slow
down your opponent so you can be first back to the empty spot. This version is
also sometimes referred to as Yak Yak Moose.
