Darts short history
The sport of darts began as training in the martial arts in Medieval England.
The fact that the bottom of an empty wine barrel was used is a clue to how the game
developed into a pastime. It is thought that the soldiers took their shortened arrows with
them to the local drinking establishment to both exhibit their skill and have fun at the same time.
In Rubl.com online Darts you can play 501 Darts game in so-called Arcade tournaments.
A player starts with a score of 501 and takes turns to throw 3 darts.
The score for each turn is calculated and deducted from the players total.
Bullseye scores 50, the outer ring scores 25 and a dart in the double or treble ring counts double or treble the segment score.
The objective is to be the first player (to use a minimal number of turns) to reduce the score to exactly zero with the shortest time.
A standard rule, that the last dart thrown must land in a double or the bullseye is not applied.
