Apparently there exists something called eXtreme [sic] croquet.
I know from nothing about this, which puts me a step behind [F]oxymoron:
Unfortunately I’m in no position to rate the extremeness of this particular game (since I’ve only played once), but if I had to try, I’d say DC’s extreme croquet is a cross between putt-putt golf and pool. So throw out the idea of pretentious Victorian snobbery and go play. It is fun. Throw in a couple beers and it’ll be a blast. And you’ll get to say the word “wicket” many, many times and seriously, how often do you use that word in everyday conversation?
