What are the rules for the Marco Polo game played in a pool?

Posted on Jul 22, 2023 by Lysander Templeton

Marco Polo is a classic, fun-filled game played in the pool, which involves a blend of tag and hide & seek. The game starts with one person selected as 'it' who closes their eyes and tries to tag the other players by only using the sound of their voices to locate them. The 'it' player shouts 'Marco' and the other players must respond with 'Polo', revealing their positions. If a player is tagged, they become the new 'it'. It's a simple yet entertaining game that brings joy and laughter to any pool party.
