Darts Rules are
easy to learn
Principally, games of dart are
played among individual players or two groups or teams. The teams
may be composed of two or more players each. Variation of the game
wherein it permits for more than two teams have been formulated but
is not popular to players.
Generally, nine throws are permitted for each player serving as a
“warm-up” prior to the beginning of the game. Then, to decide on
which team or player goes first, a player will take his first turn
of one dart and is thrown by a certain player from each respective
team. The team whose dart is closest to the target or “bull's eye”
gets to go first.
In each players turn, he should throw all of his three darts.
Typically, darts of two sets will be thrown. A set by every team
prior to retrieving the darts. If a players foot lands over the
throwing line or a player accidentally trips over the line and then
throws his dart, no points will be counted for such a throw and it
can not be thrown again.
After the player's final and finishing throw, darts should be left
on the board for at least a number of seconds in order that the
score can be determined and added up. A throw resulting to a dart
falling off the board or joins into any dart on the board will not
make a score.

Wedge - the number that is displayed or indicated on the “outer
Double ring – any number hit by the dart is scored two times.
The triple ring – any number hit by the dart scored three times.
Bulls eye – twenty-five points.
Double bulls eye - fifty points.

Cricket and “301” are two of the games popularly preferred by dart
participants or players, 301 being the most understandable. Every
side or team starts by having 301 points and throws the darts trying
hard to decrease or to lessen their score down to zero.
A player should strike a double first before it can count points.
The count is then reduced going to zero. The player’s talent and
skill is tested at the games conclusion, when a dart player needs to
throw either a “bull's eye” or a double that will decrease the
finishing score accurately to zero. Any progression of three
consecutive throws all in one turn that will decrease the score past
zero will not be counted.
Every game is regarded as one leg. The team that wins two from three
games played will be declared the winner.

strategy on throwing. This game uses mainly the numbers from fifteen
up to twenty and the center or bull's eyes.

singles and triples combination in order to open up a number.

succeeding score or count on that certain number builds up the total
for the player or team. The contrasting team or other player can not
gain a score on that certain number however can make an effort to
close or lock it if he can get a score of three on that certain

close the number for all. Whereas team A acquires no totals or
points, however it succeeded of not permitting team B to obtain more
points from number 17.
