Dart Board

Step by Step Grand National Basic Dart Game Rules. A player’s aim is to travel anticlockwise around the dartboard starting at 20, then 5 and then 12 etc.

Throw 3 darts on your turn, starting with 20

Each section (points) of the dartboard is like a hurdle in the horse race. You must hit that section when you throw your 3 darts during your turn. For example, on your first turn, you have to hit 20. you don’t, you are out of the game. Once you hit 20, you proceed to the next section (the number 5 in this case) on the next turn.

Similar to 20, you will need to hit the next section within your turn.

You hit each alternative large section number as you move around the board. For instance, 5 then 9 followed by 11 until you reach 1. As you move the second time around the board, hit the small 5 section and the small sections of each alternative number. Your final finish point will be the bullseye or 25.

The winner is the first to travel around the board twice or the furthest travelled.
