Play as a game or play just to improve your darts. If you want something to test your skill and help improve your accuracy across the board not just the Treble 20 and double 16 then give the game / practise routine ago. I have laid down some target levels and many have reported that this game has improved their throw. Enjoy!
Many people play around the clock to help improve their accuracy on the board. Around the clock is also a good game for beginners to play as it focuses on different individual targets. But here is a variation which I call 180! Around the clock.
First of all this warm up game or practice game is not about scoring 180’s it is about practising trebles around the board. The practice game can also be played as a game against an opponent or on your own.
If you are playing this game by yourself I suggest you set yourself a target i.e. 60 points. This means you only need to hit three singles in each number to achieve this target number. If you are a regular player set this target higher I suggest 75 – 80. Alternatively keep a running total of your scores and aim to better the score the next time you play. You will be surprised how this basic game will improve your overall game and become an additive as you try to improve your score.
Remember doubles are considered a poor throw in this game should you hit only score 1 point for these should you hit one.
If you play the 180 as a game against friends then you can add an extra dimension to it.
180 can be play with 2 or move players but this extra dimension can spice the game up a bit more.*
* If a player fails to score on a number in a round of three darts then their score becomes frozen and they proceed no further. Other players continue until 20 or until they miss a number and become frozen. The highest total wins.
