Darts

A game of skill and accuracy.

Darts is a game using three darts, and a circular target, called a dart board. Players throw the three darts at the dart board, and add up the score.

Scoring:

The standard dartboard is divided into twenty numbered sections, scoring from one to 20 points, by wires running from the small central circle to the outer circular wire. Circular wires within the outer wire divide each section into single, double and triple areas.

Various quite different games can be played (and still are played informally) using the standard dartboard. However, in the official game, any dart landing inside the outer wire scores as follows:

-Hitting one of the large portions of each of the numbered sections, traditionally colored black and yellow, scores precisely the points value of that section.

-Hitting the thin outer portions of these sections, colored red and green, scores double the points value of that section.

-Hitting the thin inner portions of these sections, roughly halfway between the outer wire and the central circle and again colored red or green, scores triple (or 3x) the points value of that section.

-The central circle is divided into a green outer ring worth 25 points (known as "outer" or "outer bull") and a red inner circle (usually known as "bull", "inner bull" or "double bull"), worth 50 points. The term "bullseye" can mean either the whole central part of the board or just the inner red section.

-Hitting outside the outer wire scores nothing.

-Any dart that does not remain in the board after throwing (for example, a dart that hits a wire and bounces out of the board) also scores nothing. Variations on this rule exist - some judge that a dart which obviously hits a scoring section but then subsequently drops out will count if caught before it hits the floor. In professional rules, a dart's tip must be touching a scoring section for the dart to count.


The highest possible score with 3 darts is 180, achieved by hitting "Triple 20" each throw.

There are many variants to the game of Darts
