In this article, we’ll cover how to play Baseball Darts.
What Is Baseball Darts?
Baseball darts is a dart game inspired by the game of baseball. As with standard baseball, baseball darts is divided into innings, and players score runs. However, players only score a run by hitting specific areas of the board.
Instead of subtracting points, you keep track of your total runs. At the end of the ninth inning, the player with the most runs wins.
How to Play Baseball Darts
Baseball darts is divided into innings instead of rounds. Players take turns throwing darts to score the most runs in nine innings.
Each player throws three darts during their turn. The target is the number of the current inning.
During the first round, players aim at number one. In the second round, players need to hit the number two and so on for nine rounds.
Baseball darts can also go into extra rounds. If the two teams are level on points at the end of the 9th round, the play goes into a 10th round. Players aim for the number 10. The target changes with each extra innings until the game ends with a winner.
How to Score Baseball Darts
Players can score 1 to 3 runs depending on where the dart lands on the target segment:
● Single = 1 run
● Double = 2 runs
● Triple = 3 runs
You do not score any points or runs for the target number.
As each player can throw three darts per inning, the maximum score for a single inning is nine points.
A game of baseball darts is one of many alternative ways to play darts. It works best in teams, allowing you to recreate the structure of a baseball match.
Each player takes turns throwing at a single segment of the dartboard. You target the number one in the first inning, the number two in the second inning, etc.
