Darts as a game is the is the most fun you will ever have with friends and family. In some instances, it’s the most fun everyone else will have while watching. But seriously, this is not a just a game of skill. It’s a game of one-upmanship. Darts on the table, waiting your turn, you have to ask yourself how many games can you win, while keeping your eye on the bulls-eye, and how many can your opponent win, while you keep talking.
Dartboards come in many makes, but have to follow the regulation size. The great thing about a dartboard is that no matter how crowded a pub or a bar may be, the best place to be would be beside or near the dartboard. It’s where the other patrons would not want to crowd the space. On the downside, it might get pretty scary in that area if the players are all newbies in darts, and have a wild throw.
There is a certain toughness, charm, chutzpah, and animal magnetism with playing darts in a pub, while hanging out with your friends. Of course you can play it while at home by yourself, but what’s the fun in that? The beauty of the game is in the scoring. It sounds complicated and it is, but it’s easy to keep track of scores, and if you cannot keep your own scores – for whatever reason – then it’s time to let someone else play and head home. You can play in a crowded bar, you can play with friends and not hit the dartboard, but you cannot play if you cannot keep score.
