  • This game was invented by a caretaker of a house infested with camel crickets. This is typically a solitary pursuit, but teams can be formed as long as everyone brings their own legal equipment. The unpublished rules blend croquet with shuffleboard and are not nearly as anal as golf. (an e-book is pending) The object is to use a flyswatter to slide dead camel crickets through a designated goal (exterior door, dust pan, etc.) using the fewest number of strokes. Crickquet should not to be confused with Crickcurling where play is limited to the dead of winter and the objective is to slide a carcass closest to the goal line without crossing it. Any suggestion that Crickquet is derivative of Trailer Park or Ghetto Roachquet is spurious conjecture.
