Getting into the Activity:

Play a traditional game of darts or introduce some variations to help keep the game fresh. Games could be played individually or as part of a team.

301 – Each player starts with a score of 301. Taking it in turns, players throw their darts. Scores should be deducted from their starting score of 301. The first player to hit exactly 0 is the winner. Vary the game by reducing or increasing the starting score and requiring a player to finish the game with a double.

Around the Clock – Players should start the game by aiming for the number 1. After successfully hitting one they can then move onto 2, then 3 and so on. The first player to make their way around to number 20 wins. Vary the game by allowing a player to skip a number if they hit a double and skip two numbers if they hit a treble. So if a double 1 was hit, the player could skip 2 and aim for 3. If a treble 1 was hit, a player could skip 2 and 3 and aim for 4 next.

Killer – Players are allotted numbers between 1 and 20 and pick blindly by throwing one dart at the board with their weaker arm. Each player must hit their own number five times (a double gives two lives and a treble gives three) and when he or she does, they are referred to as a “killer”. At this point, the “killer” can then throw at the opponent’s numbers. Whenever they hit an opponent’s number the opponent loses a life. If an opponent’s double is hit they lose two lives and a treble means three lives are lost. The opponents must hit their own numbers again to build their lives back up again. If any player loses all their lives they are out of the game. The winner is the last player to remain with any lives.


Keeping Everyone Safe

Maintain social distancing where required. Ideally young people should be given their own dart to play with the whole time. Where darts need to be shared, this should be kept between a small number and darts should be cleaned between users.
