Extreme croquet

This week, Only a Game covered the sport of Extreme Croquet.

Still doesn't hold a candle to Extreme Ironing, though.

    It looks like they have been playing against my mother.

    She is a vicious croquet player ( her second favorite game, scrabble is #1), it is not unusual to end up clibing over a fence or into a row of shrubs to try to knock your ball back towards the goal.

    I prefer the excitement of rock, paper, scissors.


    The stickers are especially creative.

    Extreme croquet

    … a curious game that involves hitting people for no readily apparent reason and then running away.

    Back in my high school days I used to work at the St. Bonaventure dining hall. We used to have a sport called "Freestyle Dishwashing". It was loads of fun ;-) It basically just involved loading the different dishes/pans onto the dishwasher into intricate patterns on in remarkable quantities.

    I misread the title of this article. I thought it was Extreme Crochet…

  6. If I meant crochet I would have written crochet.

    Sounds like a lightweight version of what I and friends used to play at school (in 6th form, think seniors in US high school).

    Hoops over rabbit holes were a favourite, or a couple of yards up a 45 degree bank.

    We stopped when no-one could handle the combination of bank and rabbit hole…
