Standard "01" Dart Games
The most common dart games played are the called the "01 Games". The many versions of this game are Darts 301,501,701, 901, 1101, and 1501. Darts 301 and darts 501 are the most popular dart games and like the other versions can be played with either individual players or teams.
In this example,we will use individuals playing Darts 501. Each player will start with 501 points. The objective of the game is to be the first player to reduce their points to zero. Each player will take turns and on their turn will throw all three of their darts. The total number of points where the darts landed will be subtracted from their starting score until reaching zero.
