I Summon the knowledge of… Pool Games!

The last few days, I’ve been lounging in the swimming pool attached to my friends’ apartment complex. And having a ball. Swimming is one of my favorite activities– it’s good exercise, it’s relaxing, it’s peaceful under the water, and it’s such a great chance to be playful and splash at each other. But I don’t remember many pool games.
I know that, as a kid, I’d play endless games in the pool with my friends– but I seem to have forgotten them. I remember “Marco Polo” and “500”, but that’s about it. Do you remember any others?

I can’t remember any specific names for games, but this summer at the pool with some friends we got one of those 3 foot inflated balls from Wal-Mart for like $1.96 and tried to see how many passes we could make w/o stopping the ball and w/o it hitting the water…made for a lot of fun

Record: 101 times with 3 people playing, and yes, I was partaking in some Recreational Adult Beverages at the time
