All Goose Goose Duck Roles Explained

The only game where you can win by eating your fallen bird brethren

by Daphne Fama

Goose Goose Duck is a fantastic social deduction game you can play on your mobile or PC, which puts you in the role of either Goose or Duck. As a Goose, your role is to complete tasks and root out the nefarious and murderous Ducks. And as a Duck, your job is to kill or help the killer’s escape justice. If you’ve played Werewolf or Mafia, the concept is very familiar. Goose Goose Duck is essentially the bird baby of these classic games and Among Us.

You’ll select your role anonymously at the beginning of the game, which will impact how you play. So, it’s a good idea to know what role you’re choosing (or what’s being forced on you). Here’s what all roles do.
