This is an adaptation of the lawn game Nine-wicket Croquet as a tabletop coin FlickingGame. This game requires a seemless smooth-surface table of at least 3x5 feet.
The rules text is under the GNU FDL version 1.2. This license fails to make the work free culture because:
- it imposes the requirement to include the full text of the FDL in every redistributed copy of the work
- The rules are loosely based on the U.S. Croquet Assoc. official Nine-Wicket Croquet rules.
- Luckily there are just enough tiles in a standard piecepack to construct a Croquet field: 9 pairs for the wickets and two stacks of three for the end posts.
- Tournament Nine-Wicket Croquet only allows a player to have at most two extra shots save up at any one time, but more informal play allows for any number, so I used those rules.
