One player is selected to be the fox, the others are the geese. The geese are standing in one line behind each other, holding the player in front on his shoulders.

The task of the fox is to catch the last goose of the line. The other geese have to try and prevent that for as long as possible. When the fox manages to catch the goose, the caught goose becomes the next fox, and the previous fox is the new head of the tail of geese.
