Networks have been picking up childhood favorites like Dodgeball. Why not the fan favorite Duck Duck Goose?

I'm thinking grown men racing around a circle furiously chasing each other, it would make for a great spectator sport.

Duck Duck Goose for the Ignorant http://www.gameskid..._games/dk_dk_gs.htm
This is a link for those of you not familiar with the game itself. [Blumster, Jan 04 2005]

       <<<tackles and wrestles with Blumster>>> You're it! You have to sit in the mushpot! We're Number One!!!   

       Duck Duck Goose has always been one of my favorite games. [+]

       It may be cultural, but I am not familiar with Duck Duck Goose - could you provide a link for the similarly ignorant?

       Can they play it on ice? That way all of the unemployed hockey players could get some action.
Zimmy, Jan 04 2005
  

       Sorry, but the game is called Duck Duck GREY DUCK. There are no geese in the game. No bun for the wrong title.

       Grown men playing this game sounds gay. Is there no other point other than to furiously chase each other?

       Oh, you mean Stuffed Dummy. No poultry involved at all.

       No need for shrooms or the like, [ED Jr], you just have to be in touch with your inner child. But some of us have never really grown up. :)

       Only retarded minnesotans call this game duck, duck, grey duck. I mean, holy shit, what a stupid name.   

       Hallucigens possible. Ice is probable. Great idea.
Blumster, Jan 04 2005
  

       Hey, if you call us retarded for voting pro wreslers into office, living where the temperature rarely gets above freezing in the winter, or talking in our unaccented way, we couldn't care less.   

       But if you insult our Grey Ducks, we will fight to the last man.

       How 'bout we settle this over some Grey Goose martinis?

       Funny everyone connecting hallucinogens and childhood - perhaps we had better imaginations back then and came closer to seeing ducks and geese in the game? In that case, I propose amphetamines as well - children are much faster and more excitable than adults.

       working in a school for under 12's - I think my kids would find this boring...

       [ED Jr], I haven't the foggiest idea what the inner child is, but I don't usually have the chance to use that phrase, so I took advantage of the situation and put it in there.
Machiavelli, Jan 04 2005
  

       BTW, I have a duck duck goose question. Are you allowed to say "Goose" without first saying "duck" at least 2 times?   

       Because I think that if you called the very first person Goose, s/he'd be so surprised that you'd be halfway around the circle before they even got up.
phundug, Jan 05 2005
  

       I think that's part of the challange, but then there are the jerks who keep going around the circle for hours without ever saying "grey duck".
Aq_Bi, Jan 06 2005
  

       Goose   

       (starts running)
Worldgineer, Jan 06 2005
  

       (flags down a grey duck and takes off after [Worldgineer])   

       Grey Duck!

       It was just a decoy.   

       When I was a kid we'd sometimes, for fun, use the words "peanut butter" and "jelly".   

       I understand nobody but Americans like peanut butter (and consequently won't get what PB and J have to do with each other) so this will probably be like what Americans call soccer--it'll be a game just like DDG/DDGD, but we'll also have a game called DDG/DDGD that is, in fact, Kick the Can.

       Being a resident of minnesota, I can agree you are retarded on all of those counts. The grey duck thing is also retarded, however. Aesthetically 'Goose' sounds far better than the duosyllabic 'Grey Duck.' Boo.
Blumster, Jan 06 2005
  

       "gray duck" is a little addition to the rules, where the "goose" can tag a "gray duck" to help catch the person who is "it".
Worldgineer, Jan 07 2005
  

       <begin off topic> I went to Carorita, Trujillo, Venezuela in Feb of '04. We tried to teach it as duck, duck, goose and got no where (no cultural tie). We decided to try the game as gato, gato, perro. They loved it (and we had a lot of fun, too)!<end off topic>
