Ricochet was developed in the 1980s as an easy to learn version which can easily be used as a step up to Association Croquet. It was originally developed in Adelaide, Australia by John Riches and Tom Armstrong. Ricochet has similar rules to Association Croquet with the difference being that when a ball is ricochet it remains live and two free shots are earned. This enables the strikers ball to play closer to an opponents ball and ricochet that as well which earns a further two free shots. In addition to these rules when a player runs a hoop they earn one free shot.
