Croquet is a nasty game played on polite well-mown lawns by polite vicars and their well-mown spouses. It offers unrivalled opportunities to be quite vicious while remaining unfailingly courteous. It is quintessentially English.
It is a game for two teams (Black and Blue versus Red and Green), with each team having between one and two players. If a team has two players, each player takes one colour each.
Tip: teamwork is vital, and discussions between teammates on tactics is often highly beneficial.
