This game for three or more players takes place in a swimming pool . One player is chosen as “It” and wears a blindfold (or closes his/her eyes).  It counts out loud to ten while the other players disperse around the pool. It then begins swimming around the pool, trying to tag players without being able to see them. Sound is the only way It can know where the other players are. It can call out  ”Marco!” and all of the other players must answer by calling out “Polo!” If It successfully tags another player, that player becomes It and wears the blindfold. Play continues until exhaustion takes over.
