28 Common Darts Terms You Should Know

Darts Terms and Slang

Slang has long been used in England, and particularly in the East End of London, to describe or, in some situations, to conceal the meaning of a word or a group of words. If you were born within hearing distance of the bells of St Mary-le-Bow Church, Cheapside, sometimes known as the ‘Bow Bells,’ you were referred to as a cockney by the local community. For Pearly Kings and Queens, and for their cockney rhymes, the East End is well-known around the world. “I’m just about to descend down the frog and toad!” says the speaker.

The score of 26 is probably the most well-known dart statement in the world!

This type of score is referred known as ‘bed and breakfast,’ or BB for short, in some circles.

Based on the cost of bed and breakfast in the early part of the twentieth century, which was 2s 6d in old English money (two shillings and sixpence), this term or proverb was coined.

It was an upgrade on the original term and had nothing to do with the expense of a “champagne breakfast.” The terms listed below are only a few examples of what is being said.

They also have a website dedicated to darts terminology (DartsHistorian).

A

Darts are referred to by another name.

ARCHER

Refers to a player that throws smooth darts at a high rate of speed, similar to an archer’s arrow (also known as a ‘Derek’). “FLOATER” is a contrast.

BREAKFAST / BEDBREAKFAST

In a game of x01, a score of 26 was achieved by the use of single-5s, single-20s, and single-1s. This is a popular score in darts because players who are going for the 20 segment (which includes the highest scoring region on the board) frequently hit the 1 and 5 segments, which are positioned on each side of the 20 section, by mistake.

The term “two and six” stems from the average price of a bed-and-breakfast in bygone days: 2 shillings and sixpence, often known as “two and six,” in English. (See also “CHIPS” for further information.)

In certain games, such as the game of Shanghai, this is an automatic victory.” The roots of this name have been difficult to trace; nevertheless, it is possible that it came from the card game ‘Shanghai Rummy,’ in which the goal is to acquire three of a kind or three sets of three cards, as the title suggests.

  • It does not explain why the city is called ‘Shanghai.’ Shanghai is separated into three counties and sixteen districts, which, I feel, is one of the reasons why it could be appropriate to utilize it.
  • Hangpu, Luwan, Changning, Putuo, Hongkou, Minhang, Jiading, Jinshan, Songjiang, Qingpu, Nanshi, Xuhui, Jing’an, Zhabei, Yangpu, Baoshan, and Pudong New Area are among the 16 districts that make up the city.
  • Well, I believe this may explain the three, and it is more plausible that the name “darts” originated from a card game than than having a direct connection to Shanghai as previously thought.
  • There are numerous other variations of the card game Rummy, including Indian Rummy and contract Rummy, among others.

During the nineteenth century, the card game Khanhoo/Majong was popularized, and it was known as such. However, there are several claims to the original Rummy, as well as other modifications on the game.” David King is a well-known author.

In the United States, cricket appears to be the game of choice amongst young people. All of your structured leagues and tournaments, on the other hand, include several events with the numbers 301 and 501, both as singles events and as team events.

Cricket

However, despite the fact that leaguetournament play has an identical number of’01 games (301501) in their format, cricket is by far the most popular game played in America, both at home and in pubs. The game of cricket is one in which there is an element of strategy, and as such, with the use of a clever approach, a less competent player may be able to come out on top from time to time. Scoring three of each target number (20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15) and three bulls-eyes is the goal of the game in this variation.

When three marks of a certain number have been scored, the number is called “closed.” The winner is determined by who is the first to shut all of the numbers, including the bulls-eye, and who is either tied or ahead in points.

Despite the fact that numbers can be played at any moment, they are typically played in decreasing sequence, beginning with twenty. top

Scoring Cricket

A normal scoreboard will include all of the Cricket numbers that will be in play throughout the game. For each dart that scores in an unmarked number (any number that has not been marked for a score), a backward slash” “is added next to the number that was scored with the previous dart. A second mark is represented by a forward slash”/”forming an X. The third score is symbolized by a circle enclosing the X, which effectively closes or protects this particular number. A score in the double or triplering is worth 2 or 3 points, depending on how many times it is achieved.

Soft tip

It varies depending on the equipment that is being used, but the cricketmarks can be three LED lights, a single light with three distinct colors, or a full depiction of the Slashes, X’s, and circle, with a sequence of lights, on some of the more complex machines. top

Scoring Points

As soon as a player has closed a number (by making three marks on it), points can be earned on that number if their opponent has not closed it yet. Closing a number may be used in an attacking manner to score points, as well as a defensive one to prevent your opponents from earning points.

Ending the Game

Player A closes all of their numbers but has less points than their opponent, the game will continue until either Player A matches or betters their opponent’s score or Player B closes the remaining of their numbers while maintaining the greater or the same total amount of points as their opponent. top

Simple Cricket

During the game, the goal is for the player to score three points in each target number, including the bulls-eye, in the shortest amount of time. There are no points at stake. Despite the fact that it is a lot easier game and may be seen as a suitable game for novices, it is really a game of chance in which the better player nearly always prevails.

301 / 501

The “01” family of games, with the exception of the beginning score, are all typically played in the same way, with one difference. To win these games, you need to start with a certain number (301, 501, etc.) and remove each turn’s score from that amount until you reach zero.

301

The game 301 is popular as a league game, but it is also played as a singles match rather frequently (individuals competing rather than teams). This game is played largely as a double start, double finish since the beginning amount is so low in this game. The term “double start” refers to the need that you score a dart in the outer double ring before you can begin deducting from 301 points. It is then possible to throw another dart directly at the twenty wedges when this is completed. Player A has 32 points remaining – double 16 is the winning shot – and the double finish implies that the winning dart must land in a double segment in order for the score to be reduced to zero.

Soft tip

The majority of electronic devices let you to choose the game and which version you want to play. Straight starts (without the need for a double) and straight finishes are prevalent in league competition. Straightstart with a double finish is an option for more experienced players (requiring the winning game shot to be in a doublesegment).

For the most experienced players, the tough game of double start, double finish is available. The game of 301 is quite popular as a league game and is frequently played as a team game as well.

501

The game 501 is the one that is played in the majority of professional and amateur competitions, as well as in social situations such as the house and the local bar. The goal is the same as it is in other “01” games; the winner is the player who is the first to reach zero precisely.

Steel tip

To begin this game, one can instantly aim at the highest number and begin scoring in the manner in which this game is generally started, without the necessity of first scoring a number that has been doubled. It is necessary to complete by bringing the score down to exactly zero on a doubled number in order to finish. Straight start, double finish is the term used to describe this.

Soft tip

The majority of electronic devices let you to choose the game and which version you want to play. It is generally always played with a straight start, however it can be played with a straight or doubled finish depending on the situation. This is a popular game to play in leagues and tournaments, and it is also frequently played as a team event.

Scoring 301 / 501 Games

Traditional steel tip games are scored by hand and written on a scoreboard or a score sheet, which is then discarded. The ’01 games are simple to play and will help you to improve your arithmetic abilities, particularly in subtraction. All numbers are in play, but the numbers twenty and nineteen are the most targeted since they are the highest numbers on the board and will help to bring the score down. As soon as the first round is completed, the total score from all three darting rounds (or the total score of the three darts) is usually put down on the outside ofthe scoring board or score sheet, with the remaining totals for both players written down in the centre.

Soft tip

Scoring on an electronic dartboard offers the advantage of the computer recording and completing all of the arithmetic for you because it is pre-programmed. top

Busting

Busting occurs when you surpass the number of points you have left, hit zero without landing on a double, or leave one point on the board (not possible toend the game as there is no double to finish on) When this occurs, your turn is over instantly, regardless of whether you have thrown one, two, or three darts, and your score is reset to the point where it was before your turn began.

Out Chart

When a player’s total score is fewer than 200 points, there are mathematical combinations of triple, double, and single numbers that he or she can score in order to end the game as fast as possible. Only the most proficient players are capable of achieving these combos on a consistent basis. Out shots are a term used to describe these types of combinations. Several tables (called out charts) are provided for proposed finishes, and they are accessible in two dart charts (winning with only two darts) as well as three dart charts (winning with three darts) (winning with three darts).

Identifying and understanding the letters above, as well as what they represent, makes reading the Out Chart of proposed finishes simple. In pubs, several of these charts are put on the walls near the dartboard to assist league players in memorizing their out shots and speeding up play.

History

In the beginning, there are many different legends to tell, from stories of Neanderthalspracticing with spears to stories of pilgrims bringing the game to Americaon board the Mayflower, there are many different stories to tell. Several accounts have been told about archers in medieval England who, in order to get some winter practice, used arrows that had been chopped down and discovered that the circular bottom of a wine cask at the local bar formed an ideal target. Even Henry the VIII was rumored to have enjoyed the game, and his one-time wife, Ann Boleyn, presented him with an elegant set of darts to commemorate the occasion.

  1. During World War I, the game had a constant presence in local bars and taverns, with even the King and Queen making appearances and throwing darts for promotional purposes to help spread the word.
  2. When the war was over, the game was brought back to America by the GIs who had been stationed in England and took it back with them.
  3. This machine was first introduced and developed in the mid- to late-1970s, and it has been in continuous production since then.
  4. With the prospect of sharing in the monetary bonanza, as well as the added security of plastic points, bar owners joined on, and the game proceeded to flourish in those locations that had been extensively marketed.
  5. Today, there are professional dart players who fight for thousands of dollars in prize money, as well as televised events that are broadcast on a consistent basis in England.
  6. In today’s world, the game of darts has spread beyond the confines of pubs and taverns, and it can now be found in many home leisure gamerooms as well as on college campuses, making it a popular activity and a fixture of the indoor gaming business.

Tutorial: How to sew darts

When it comes to stitching darts, the process might be intimidating for novices. We all know that obtaining a straight line and ending up just at the point was difficult for me at the time. Double-pointed darts appeared to be much more perplexing. I was able to learn the art of throwing darts after a significant amount of time spent training.

I’m confident that these recommendations will be of assistance if darts are causing you problems! You can share any useful techniques you’ve learned when stitching darts in the comments section or the forum if you’ve been doing it for a long. We always look forward to learning from you!

Straight Dart

Unlike curved darts, which have only one tip, straight darts feature dart legs that run down the border of the design. When it comes to home sewing, they’re perhaps the most popular type of dart. There’s a decent chance you’ve had to sew a few breast or waist darts in your life. If you want to sew a straight dart, be sure to mark it on the fabric with a pin before sewing it. The ends of the dart should also be clipped along the edge before sewing it. The dart should be drawn using tailor’s chalk, a fabric marker, or a pencil.

  • Pin the piece in place with a little touch.
  • 3) Sew along the specified line slowly and steadily.
  • Tie the tail tightly to the side of the container.
  • Take care not to draw the knot too tightly against the cloth, since this will produce puckering, just as backstitching at the end will cause puckering as well.

Curved Dart

Curved darts are frequently utilized around the breast area because they are really flattering. Sewed in the same manner as a single point dart, all curved darts with legs running down the seam allowance are sewed together. Because they are only bent, you may need to stitch a little bit more slowly than usual. 1) To make sewing a little easier, the seam allowance is drawn along the curved dart in this example. 2) Pinch the dart with care to secure it. 3) Sew the dart in place slowly. Tie the thread tails together at the end.

Double Point Dart

Dresses with basic lines are more likely to have double point darts in them. 1) Trace the pattern onto a piece of tracing paper. With a tracing wheel, trace the path of the dart. In other words, draw lines using a ruler and a fabric pencil to indicate the sides and points of the dart, aligning them up as you go. Your dart should have a similar appearance to this. 2) Fold the dart in half, making sure the lines are aligned. This will take some time, especially if the dart is a significant distance away.

  • 3) Beginning in the centre of the dart, stitch the dart together.
  • Sew all the way to the end of the dart and cut the threads.
  • Repeat the same method with the dart’s second leg.
  • For some darts, it is necessary to clip the middle, or the broadest area, of the dart in order to release fabric tension.

  • The winner is determined by who is the first to hit a 20.
  • The following numbers are in play: bullseye, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15 The objective is to ‘close’ these numbers on the board in order to obtain the maximum possible point total.
  • Players or teams take turns throwing three darts in a row (an “inning”) to win the game.
  • Once a person or team scores three times on a certain number, they have ‘owned’ it.
  • The total of all numerical scores is combined together.
  • In order to complete the bullseye, the outside bull counts as a single and the inside bull counts as a double on the scoring sheet.
