    Been working on hitting wherever I throw at and came up with this last Thursday while warming up with a league team partner before a match.

    Currently, you only need to hit each of the following targets once to move on, but you could obviously make it more (or use the "alternative" game - see below).

    This game uses the entire board, and I definitely mean more than you usually would! To win you simply need to hit all the targets (in order) before your opponent(s), however the targets are not what you are used to shooting at.

    Here's the order (subject to be changed, shortened or extended as you see fit!):


    • The loop of the 20
      The loop of the 19
      The inner loop of the 18
      The loop of the 16
      The loop of the 6
      The loop of the 9
      The loop of the 10
      The inner loop of the 8
      Double Bull
      [/list:u]

      The order is designed to have you moving from one edge of the board to another and, naturally, you can feel free to add the closed areas of the 4 and 14 as well as the outer loops on the 8's, but I don't think they really add much.

      The normal game is over once someone has hit all of the targets in order, but an alternative is for everyone playing to all shoot at the same target for one turn then move on with a point system added: 1 point for a single hit, 3 points for two darts in the loop and 9 points for all three darts in the loop. Go through all the targets in order (takes nine turns for the targets listed above) and whoever has the highest points wins.

      Let me know what you think! :wink:

    I think he means the actual loop in the wire number on the edge of the board.
