By this time, the other players scatter around in the pool. After the count is over, the blindfolded player swims around and tries to tag any other player. He is allowed to locate the other players only by their voice. In order to guess their location, he cries 'Marco', to which all the other players reply by shouting 'Polo'. This continues till he is able to tag another player, who is then blindfolded and made to catch another player, and so on.
