Cincinnati Rules Croquet

Starting a Game
A player places his ball anywhere behind the first wicket adjacent to the Main Stake and strikes. If the player passes the both of the wickets in a single stroke, he is awarded 2 continuance strokes. If the player chokes on his opening hit, that is, misses either wickets one or two, he is awarded a "Mulligan" and may restart the game without penalty. Only ONE Mulligan is permitted per game and ONLY at the start of the game. If the player chokes again, he must play on and try to recover from his mistake.

It pretty much Standard Operating Procedure to have 2 continuance strokes at the start of a game.
