Summer is a great time to get out in the park or backyard and play some lawn games with friends and family. Croquet is a all-time favorite classic lawn game for playing with friends at picnics. Older kids and grown-ups alike love the challenge of whacking the colored balls through the hoops and wickets along the course and hitting the stake at the end of the double wicket. The fun part about playing croquet is that you get one extra shot each time your ball passes through a wicket. You also get an extra shot when you hit your opponents ball. An added bonus when you hit your opponent's ball is that you can move your ball into better position for your next shot.
Once the first person completes the entire croquet course, the game is not over, but that person has the option of becoming "poison". The person who is poison continues taking their turn, but rather than sending their ball through the wickets, their aim is to knock the remaining players out of the game. Once the poison ball touches another ball, the game is over for that player. Once someone becomes poison, the game of croquet becomes a race to see who can complete the course before they are knocked out of the game by the poison ball.
