Tips & Warnings

  • You must answer every shout of "Marco" that you hear.
  • You cannot get out of the pool to escape being tagged. If Marco thinks someone has gotten out of the pool, he or she shouts, "Fish out of water!" A player outside the pool when this is called becomes the new Marco.
  • Only play in a pool with a lifeguard or responsible adult watching.
