I believe legend or maybe history says Marco Polo didn't know where he was going when he set out on his travels. Looking at the game the person who is "it" is blind(eyes closed).

Another version is he fell asleep on his horse and dropped back in his caravan when he awoke he was lost. He started hallucinating that his name was being called "Marco" "Polo". He of course was found later. This may be the origin as I think this incident maybe in his memoirs he wrote.

A water tag game is called Marco Polo, which is slowly becoming a popular game around the world. My question is, why is it called Marco Polo? Is it something to do with the European explorer, Marco Polo?
