The game Marco Polo historically referr to the time when the explorer Marco Polo (then at the age of 17) was exploring the region of China with his father and uncle. They were traveling to China in order to see the Khan. Marco grew very exhausted during their travels and fell asleep on his horse one day. His horse sensed this and dropped back from the traveling caravan within the nation. When Marco woke up and did not see his family, he began to hear voices within the desert and thought that it was his family searching for him and calling his name ‘Marco’. Because of this, he began to respond to those cries with ‘Polo’. It turned out that Marco Polo was actually hallucinating and they were not calling him even though he was later found by his family.
