The Dart Board (page 2) 

CARD DARTS

Using a deck of cards, each player is dealt 3 cards. The cards are kept secret.

Choose player order by drawing cards, ace high.

The first player chooses a card from his/her hand and shoots at the corresponding inning. (Jack=11, Queen-=12, and the King=13, no jokers) When the player hits the triple in the corresponding number, the card is dead. The first player to have all his/her cards killed, wins.

Each shooter gets three darts per inning.

Only triples kill.

If another player has the same card that is killed by the shooter, his/her card is also killed.

GOLF

Golf is a game that may be played with as many players as desired. It is also a very quick game, limited to only 3 “shots” per “hole”. Games may be played with 9 or 18 holes. A 9 hole game with 2 players can be played in 5 minutes or less.

Like real golf, the object is to complete each hole in as few shots as possible. The player with the lowest score at the end of 9 or 18 holes wins.

Player’s names are written across the top of the board in order. Order is usually determined by throwing one dart each for the bull’s eye with the closest playing first. This is a game that playing order makes no difference, all players have an equal number of throws to complete the game.

The agreed upon number of holes to play is written in order down the left side of the board (1 through 9 or 1 through 18). A running total is kept for each hole played and written next to the number of the hole in the column for that player.

The thin outer “doubles” ring counts as a hole in one. The thin inner “triples” ring counts as 2 strokes. The thin wedge between the bull’s eye and the triples ring counts as 3 strokes. The thick wedge between the doubles and triples ring counts as 4 strokes. Missing the number entirely counts as 5 strokes. 5 is the worst score you can score on any one hole.

The first player begins the first hole by throwing for 1’s. The player may choose to throw one, two or all three darts for the hole. However many darts are thrown, the last dart thrown is the one that counts. For example, the player throws the first dart into the thin wedge of the 1 for a score of 3. Unsatisfied with this score, s/he throws the remaining two darts at the triple and misses the ones entirely. The score for is now 5 for the hole, s/he may not choose to count the first dart because he continued throwing. If s/he had been satisfied with the first dart, s/he may have kept the score of three and not thrown the remaining two darts.

The remaining players play through the first hole in order. When play returns to the first player, the second hole is played and 2 is the target number. The game continues as such until all 9 or 18 holes have been played. As in real golf the lowest score wins.

MULLIGAN

This is a very difficult game with very simple rules. Generally it is a game played by very good players only. It may be played by any number of players.

To “close” six random numbers and the bull’s eye before your opponents.

The players’ names are written across the top of the board in playing order. Playing order is usually determined by throwing one dart each at bull’s eye, and the closest plays first.

“Closing” a number means hitting three of that number. In the case of this game only the triples ring (the thin inner ring) counts in this game except for the bull’s eye round. Each triple counts as one towards closing the number. Therefore three triples of each number and three bull’s-eyes must be hit to win the game.

Six random numbers are chosen from the board as the targets. The random numbers may be chosen by throwing darts left handed at the board or just called out. These numbers are written down the left hand side of the board and a “B” for bull’s eye below them.

A score of one is indicated by writing a slash (“/”) next to the number, a score of two by writing an X and a score of three by writing a circle (“O”) to show it is closed.

The first player throws darts at the triple of the first number on the list. No other numbers count until the first number is closed.

Play continues alternating players until someone has closed all six numbers and the bull’s eye in order.
