Have you ever heard of Vigoro?

I thought I was quite knowledgeable about other near-cricket games like Knur & Spell, Stoolball and Bat & Trap but I'd never heard of Vigoro until recently - look it up on wikipedia here.

I find it extraordinary that a game so similar to cricket was invented as a separate game and that it seems to survive - the others games have big differences from cricket and I've even bought a Bat & Trap kit to use on rained off days on our imminent tour.

Never heard of any of them - so ignorant.

Looking forward to playing bat and trap though....
