How do you play darts?
A game of darts usually involves two players, with three darts each. Darts is a very simple game. Professional Players begin with a total score of 501. They take turns trying to hit the bullseye (or bull’s-eye) or the largest numbers possible.
Each player gets three throws per turn. At the end of their first turn they deduct the total points they hit from 501.
The winner is the first player to reduce their score to exactly zero. Reducing your score to 1 or below zero is a bust and the player’s score goes back to what it was at the beginning of that turn. Of course, there are a few more darts rules, but they’re easy to learn in just a few minutes, and you’ll play a solid game very quickly.
How many points for a BULLSEYE?!?
The bullseye is the very center of a target, and it’s usually red. When you hit the very center, that shot itself is also called a bullseye. The bullseye scores 50 points. There is also an outer ring which is usually green. When your shot hits the outer ring, you score 25 points.
Professional players aim strategically at certain numbers in order to reduce their score to exactly zero as fast as possible. The game is really quite challenging and is always a whole lot of fun!
