Rules to play Croquet
Deadness occurs after a roquet is made and the striker is unable to score his her wicket. The consequences are that the striker is not allowed to roquet the ball s again until scoring the wicket. Once the wicket is scored, the striker becomes alive and is able to roquet the ball s again. If a striker roquets a ball he she is dead on, all balls are replaced to their positions before the shot, and the turn is over. Deadness carries over from turn to turn.
