MGM·Lion BS: Croquet, anyone? (18) RE: BS: Croquet, anyone? 10 Jun 16


It's 'Wonderland' -- the game in Looking-Glass is chess. As well as the mallets being flamingos, the balls are hedgehogs, which keep unrolling and crawling away. Dr Dodgson certainly had a surreal imagination!

Croquet became very popular at Cambridge a few years ago, and has remained so. Many of the lawns in the college courts are laid out with hoops, and one will often pass playing students as one walks thru.
