How Croquet Works


Author's Note

This article was both a lot of fun and kind of a pain to write. In terms of the latter, I do prefer topics that are a little more buttoned up and exact. Croquet is not. At all. On the other hand, I did get to spend a morning out in the yard playing croquet as research, which was both informative and awesome.
