Marco Polo

When I was little my cousins and I used to play a
swimming game, Marco Polo. The game is like hide and
seek in the water with a few variations. A person is
selected to search for the others. The "seeker" is
then blindfolded and spun around in the water. Then
all of the other players try to stay away from the
blindfolded person. However, as a clue the blindfolded
person yells out "Marco" and all of the other players
yell back "Polo". The players then try to stay away
from the blindfolded person. Whoever is caught first
is then the one who is blindfolded.
