Dartball game in which darts are thrown at a large wooden or board that resembles a dartball field with colored areas which denote bases. This game is similar to the actual game of dartball and uses dartball-like rules and scoring. Players try to score as many points as possible per inning in order to win.Dartball is a very simple and fun game that may be played by as many players or teams as wish to play. There is a version of the game that must be played on a special dart board, but we will only be covering the version that is played on a standard English dart board.
The Object of Dartball/Baseball Dart Rule
Score the most amount of runs each inning, the highest score at the end of the game wins.
The Scoring of Dartball/Baseball Dart Rule
The numbers 1 through 9 are written in ascending order on the left side of the scoreboard. All players names are written in batting order across the top (batting order may be determined any way, usually one dart each at bulls eye with the closest throwing first and the furthest last). A grid may be drawn around the numbers and the names for easier reading.
The Play of Dartball/Baseball Dart Rule
Each player in order throws three darts at the number of the current inning. The target is 1's in the first inning, 2's in the second, etc. Each number only counts in the that actual inning. For example, if a 4 is hit in the first inning, it does not count. The thin outer "double" ring counts as two runs, the thin inner "triple" ring counts as three runs with the other sections of that number counting as one run. Therefore, the highest attainable score in any one inning is nine.
The number of runs scored is NOT multiplied by the inning number. For example, in the second inning, two single 2's and a double 2 are scored; that players score would be four for that inning.
Usually a running total is kept with the current inning's score being added to the current total. This way, players can see how far ahead or behind they are and saves a lot of time not having to add all nine innings at the end of the game.
If there is a tie at the end of the ninth inning, extra innings are played with bullseyes as the target. Extra innings continue until after all players have thrown for that inning and no tie exists.
One interesting twist that I like to play is the "7th inning stretch". This variation states that any player who does not score any runs in the seventh inning has their score cut in half. This puts a little more pressure on the seventh inning than any other and also gives a player who is far behind a chance to catch up.
Strategy of Dartball/Baseball Dart Rule
Try to score allot of runs.
