Rules for 301 dart
These are the rules as they are applied in the dart club of Nanny.
The red circle in the middle, made of hard wood, is called
bulls eye and worth 50 points. It counts as a
The four green fields surround bulls eye are worth 25 points.
The numbers 1 through 20 placed around the board are nominal
values for darts hitting the respective fields or sectors.
The two larger fields of a sector (green for the 20 sector) are
worth their nominal value as denoted by the number ring
surrounding the board.
The outer thin ring closest to the actual numbers are doubles,
and worth double the nominal value of their sector.
The inner thin ring is worth three times the nominal score, so
the highest possible score on a single dart would be triple 20
(the small red field halfway between the number 20 and bullseye)
that is worth 60 points.
The black area outside the double ring is considered off the
board and scores 0.
All players begin with 301 points, and the aim of the game is to reach
zero as fast as possible.
The sum of one round of up to three darts will
be withdrawn from the
remaining score. That is, you do not have to throw all
darts in a round, though normally you will do it unless you
reach zero and thereby finish the game. [In real life,
only darts that are still on the board when all darts
have been thrown counts.]
The first player to reach an even score between 2 and
50 inclusive and then
scores a double to reach exactly zero points is the winner. (Unless
someone else did that earlier.)
Players getting a negative score or reaching exactly one
will lose all points scored in that round and the game will continue
with the next player. The same goes for a player reaching zero
without scoring a double with the last dart.
