The Exciting History Of Darts

By Casper Vivianodeni

It is thought that Darts was first played by soldiers throwing short arrows below the cask or at the bottom of the trunk of trees. After the wood has dried up, cracks formed sections on the wood. Soon after that, standards already appeareed and wood carvers created dart boards, placing them in local bars and clubs.

Part of the most ancient standards made was the one of Lancashire carpenter Brian Gamlin in 1986 which has the number 20 at the top. Over time, many configurations were created and released in different areas of the globe.

Perhaps the most popular variation of the game is the game of ’01, which is the classic game of Darts, known and played all over the world. It is referred to as such because it is involves a particular number of points that always ends in the numbers “01″.

The aim of the game is just easy breezy. Every player begins, having the same exact score and the first one to reduce his score to zero wins.

All the players have three darts each. They will then take turns throwing the darts and deduct all points scored from the score they had at the very start. Every player will also have to remove his darts and mark his score before the next player throws. Those darts that don’t reach the board and bounce off are not counted as scores and cannot be thrown again during that turn. When you follow all these then, you already are playing darts.

No sweat right? However, you have to think about that again. Darts also has a challenging part. This hard part of the game is actually the process of reaching the end of the game. In darts, winning is not achieved by simply being able to hit the center target. To win, you must be the first one to reach zero. However, this zero is not the ordinary zero. It must be the perfect zero that is hit by a dart that is a double. Doubles are made up of the numbers in the outside narrow scoring band and the centre bull’s eye which amounts to 50 points and is an actual double of the outer 25-point bull.

Darts is a simple game that has simple rules and simple mechanics. Get to know Darts a little more by following this link.
