The Dartboard 
Dart Board Height:
The center of the bullseye should be exactly 5
Feet 8 Inches from the floor.
Dart Board
Distance: The
dart board face should be 7 feet 9 1/4 inches from
the throw line.
Diagonal
Distance: If
you do the first two steps correctly the
diagonal distance from the center of the
bullseye to the throw line will be 9 feet 7
3/8".
Dart Board:
The diameter of the dart board should be a
maximum of 18 inches, but is typically 17 3/4".
Other things to remember:
Most dart boards are about 1 1/2" thick, so be
sure to measure from the front of the board and
not the wall. Also be sure to consider the area
you will be mounting the dartboard, you will
need some decent lighting and a couple of extra
feet behind the throw line to allow for the back
leg to stretch out. Be sure to install some type
of backboard or cabinet to go with the board,
everyone misses on occasion and you never know
what level of player will show up to throw some
darts.
A dartboard measures 17 3/4" in diameter and has
20 equal pies with each pie containing a double
ring and a triple ring. The double ring is the
outermost ring on the dartboard and is double
the number of the pie. The triple ring is the
interior ring and it is worth triple points of
whatever pie number it is in. The bullseye also
has an outer ring which is worth 25 points, the
center of the bullseye is worth 50 points.
How To
Score The Board 






A pie slice of the
board
This would
be the "20"
point slice 
A dart here would be
worth 20 points 
A dart here would be
worth double or 40 points 
A dart here would be
worth triple or 60 points 
This is a single
bullseye and worth 25 points

Playing Cricket 
Object of Cricket:
Cricket is the most popular dart game there is.
The object is to hit the numbers from 1520 and
the bullseye three times each, which in return
"closes" that number out. Once you have closed a
number out and your opponent has not, you can
now score on that number by hitting it again.
The player with the highest points scored at the
end of the game wins.
Playing Cricket:
Player 1 begins by throwing 3 darts at the
number of his choice(1520/bullseye), every time
one of the numbers is hit, one mark is put up by
that number. If you throw a double it is worth 2
marks, a triple is worth 3. After player 1
throws 3 darts, player 2 would then take their
turn throwing 3 darts. Once a player has 3 marks
on a number it is now closed out. If the
opposing player has not closed out that same
number, anytime that number is hit you will
accrue points until the opposing player closes
that number out. If you have closed out your
20's and your opponent has not and on your 3
darts you throw a triple 20, a double 20, and a
single 20, you would get a total of 120 points.
The strategy is to start throwing at the highest
number of points first and working your way
down.
Winning the
game: To win
the game you must close out all of the numbers
and also have the high score. If you have closed
out all of your numbers and your opponent still
has a higher score, you will need to keep
scoring on the numbers that they have not closed
out. Once your score goes ahead, you win, if
your opponent closes out all of their numbers
before you pass their score they would win. In
case of a tie score the first person to close
out the numbers would win the game.

Playing '01 Games 
Object of 01 :
The 01 dart games are amongst the most popular
of dart games. The game starts with your score
being either 301, 401, 501, 601, 701, 801, 901,
Ect.. The object is to be the first one to get
their score to zero. You subtract the dart
thrown from you score at that time.
Playing 01:
There are a couple different ways to start and
finish the 01 games. You can play "Double In" or
"Single In", to star the game. To play double
in, the player throwing must hit a double before
any points will be subtracted from their score,
upon hitting the first double those points start
the game for that player, and are subtracted
from the starting score. To play single in, the
player would just throw their 3 darts trying to
get the highest score possible. You can also
choose to finish the game with a "Double Out" or
"Single Out". If you are playing double out the
player must hit a double that takes their score
to exactly zero, if you're playing single out
the player must hit any number that takes their
score to exactly zero. In both instances you
must end with exactly zero, if you go below zero
your score resets to what it was before you
threw your 3 darts for that round. The most
popular 01 game is the "Single In/ Double Out"
Game.
Winning the
game: To win
the game you simply need to aim for the highest
numbers until you get down to a reachable "out".
You should be aiming for the triple 20 at the
beginning of the game. Once you get down below
180, you will adjusting your throwing to be able
to end the game within that particular throw.
Below is a Dart Out Chart that you can study to
help understand what you need to throw at based
on what your score is.
