How to Play Darts
Below we are going to take a look at the fundamentals of darts which will help you with getting started. There are multiple ways in which you can play darts solo or as part of a group, however we will begin to take a look at how the scoring works in general.
- Yellow/Black areas – amounts to the number at the top of the section
- Outer Red/Green areas – double the amount at the top of the section
- Inner Red/Green areas – triple the amount at the top of the section
- Outer Green Bull – 25 points
- Inner Red Bull – 50 points
When marking up the area, you would need to ensure that the thrower stands 7ft 9 ¼ inches or 2.37m away from the board as per the darts rules. The general stance is on with one foot in front of the other slightly with the knee bent which allows you to have full control over the accuracy of the dart flight.
The most common game played is called ’01’ where the object of the game is to get down to zero before your opponent. It takes this name after the fact that at the beginning of the game the throwers start off with either 301 or 501 points. And to start it off, both darts players throw to establish who will play first. This is decided by who hits closer to the bullseye. From here you will compete against one another deducting the points scored on the board until you reach 0 or the closest you can get.
Another game you can play is called cricket. And this works by using the numbered areas 15 to 20. The aim of this game is to hit a number three times in a row to close the number before your partner. And at the end of the game the numbers you have closed are added together to determine the winner.
