Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. Show Players the boundaries of the playing field.
  2. Designate one Player to be “Marco Polo” and blindfold him/her.
  3. Explain that the goal for “Marco Polo” is to tag all the other Players and the goal for all the Players is to avoid being tagged.
  4. Explain that when “Marco Polo” calls out “Marco” the rest of the Players must respond with “Polo.”
  5. When a Player gets tagged by “Marco Polo,” that Player now becomes the new “Marco Polo.” Now that Player must be blindfolded.
