Origins and Ground Billiards
Mallet and ball games are thought to have been first played in England and Europe during the middle ages. Games would normally involve only one ball which would be struck through very wide hoops. A Croquet-like game is believed to have been played by thirteenth century French peasants who used crudely fashioned mallets to whack wooden balls balls through hoops made of willow branches. A variety of equipment has been found indicating that, as was typical, there were no standards and a variety of rules and types of game were in existence for several centuries. One type of game which this author calls Ground Billiards' featured a hoop and a stick, a point being scored for each time your ball was first through the hoop and onto hit the stick. At some point in the 15th century someone chose to invent an indoor variation of this played on a table which led to Billiards and that whole family of games
and hoops/rings? Mystery notwithstanding, from these medieval games sprang at least 4 modern distinct ancestors, all of which are still played today with varying degrees of popularity.

Croquet Rules Overview
Croquet can be played in many different ways - though likely not with a croquet set that features flamingo mallets and hedgehog balls, a la Alice in Wonderland . However, the Queen of Hearts might have enjoyed playing eXtreme croquet, in which players dispense with out-of-bounds rules and seek out playing surfaces that make St. Andrews in Scotland look like a mini-putt golf course.

He heaved an irritated sigh and looked at the floor from behind his book at the slowly forming pool of black, unidentifiable ink. It grew two mad eyes and an almost comical toothy grin in response to the gaze. "With all of the experience and knowledge from the centuries you've been alive, can't you even amuse yourself without badgering me?" the butler asked, holding his place in his reading material with a finger. A chilled snicker crept its way in between Walter's two ears. "Is that how you greet your only friend?" came a distorted reply, sounding as though it were being spoken from under water. "When we aren't out on a mission and I'm reading a book, yes." The muffled voice stated from behind the hardcover. He had opened it and stuck his face in it to keep from smirking at the puddle-vampire on the carpet. Walter fought with himself to keep from finding the situation humorous.
