What Is Cricket Darts?

Cricket darts is a game in which the goal is to hit and thus ‘close’ numbers between 20 and 15 plus the Bullseye. A player closes a number by hitting it three times. Only then can a play score points on that number.

Once all numbers are closed, the winner is the player with the most points.

How To Play Cricket Darts

Each number is open at the start of the game, and each player takes turns throwing three darts to close each number. A number becomes closed once hit three times. A single counts as one hit, a double counts as two, and a triple counts as three hits, closing the number.

The first player to close a number can score points on that number until the other player closes it. Once a number has been closed, neither player can score points on it. 

The winner of the game is the player with the most points, when all the numbers and the bullseye has been closed.
