Rules of American Croquet
PART 16. SHORTENED GAMES
The standard game of 26 points may be modified to a 14 point game. The game is played by the same rules as a 26 point game with the following exceptions:
a) Each ball scores only 6 wicket points and the stake point.
b) The sixth wicket is run in its normal direction, away from the stake.
c) A ball that has scored the sixth wicket becomes a rover ball.
d) A side becomes eligible for the special relief from deadness set forth in rule 7.3 when each ball of the opposing side scores the fourth wicket.
e) In handicap games played in a tournament, the tournament director may, at the beginning of the tournament, halve the number of each player’s bisques (rounding up to the nearest half or whole bisque if necessary).
