Golf darts is very like a traditional game of golf. Players should first decide if they are playing nine or eighteen rounds and what order they’ll throw.

Each round will focus on a different section of the dartboard. For example, in round three, players will be focusing on hitting the number three and so on. All players will have the opportunity to throw three darts per round but can decline to throw all three if they choose. Scores will be recorded after each round and totalled at the end of the game.

As in real golf, the winner is the player who has the lowest score at the end of either nine or eighteen rounds.
