Thanks for looking it up! From the context in the book, it sounded more like a game played indoors.

I thought so too. For all her extensive research, sometimes Heyer's sentences trip all over themselves and each other in her quest to make them sound more Regency-ish. Sometimes I find her sentence structure hard to parse.

Likewise. She makes it sound forced rather than natural.

I blame politics for my trepidation. During the first election after I moved to Australia, I was looking for info on Australian political parties and government in general (Shadow Government wasn't nearly as cool as it sounded, btw). I Googled "Australian Sex Party" and only about half the results on the first page were at all related to politics. Since then I've been a bit gun-shy. O.o
