Do you remember playing Duck, Duck, Goose when you were in elementary school? It was probably the best thing we did in gym class that didn’t involve a giant parachute. But can you imagine playing Duck, Duck, Goose with over 2,000 kids?

Students from three Indiana high schools believe they successfully broke the Guinness World Record for the largest game of Duck, Duck, Goose. According to UPI, more than two-thousand students gathered to play the game at Terre Haute South Vigo High School on Friday, May 20th.

School officials said the kids had to last 16 minutes to break the current record set by the Logan-Rogersville School District in Rogersville, Missouri on October 7, 2011. On that day at Logan-Rogersville High School, 2,135 students played Duck, Duck, Goose for 15 minutes, 55 seconds.

The Superintendent of Vigo County School Corporation in Indiana said he thinks his students beat the current record, but they’re waiting for official recognition. Dr. Rob Haworth told WTWO/WAWV that the event was a way for the students to celebrate completing 50,000 hours of community service.
