Croquet (but not as we know it).



                              'The Grand Cru' v 'The Mumblers'.

The Grand Cru (Cro and friend Serge) took on the might of The Mumblers (Lady M, Ms Miller, and two dogs) at The Lumberjack International Croquet Ground on Tuesday evening.

Astonishingly (I repeat 'astonishingly') The Mumblers managed to win the game 'BY OUTRAGEOUS CHEATING'.

Why is it whenever we play Croquet, it always ends up with more cheating than regular play?

I know it's a game that lends itself to creative interpretation of the rules; but this was ridiculous!

In future I shall return to chess.

  4. Your croquet court looks about as well manicured as ours. Outrageous cheating is all part of the fun with croquet - I've never experienced a calm, dignified game yet.

  5. I bet you had a lot of laughs and a fun time despite or because of the cheating.

  6. I always cheat at croquet. I thought everybody did. Perhaps it is a female thing.

  9. Cheating and arguments are what make croquet fun! I might just have to dust off the old set.

  10. Oh yes, chess is much more fun when played with mallets but it's harder to hide your cheating.
