Baseball is a very simple and fun game that may be played by as many
players or teams as wish to play. There is a version of the game that
must be played on a special dart board, but we will only be covering
the version that is played on a standard English dart board.
The object is simple: score the most amount of runs each inning, the
highest score at the end of the game wins.
The numbers 1 through 9 are written in ascending order on the left
side of the scoreboard. All players names are written in batting order
across the top (batting order may be determined any way, usually one dart
each at bulls eye with the closest throwing first and the furthest last). A grid
may be drawn around the numbers and the names for easier reading.
Each player in order throws three darts at the number of the current
inning. The target is 1's in the first inning, 2's in the second, etc.
Each number only counts in the that actual inning. For example, if a 4 is
hit in the first inning, it does not count. The thin outer "double" ring
counts as two runs, the thin inner "triple" ring counts as three runs with
the other sections of that number counting as one run. Therefore, the
highest attainable score in any one inning is nine.
The number of runs scored is NOT multiplied by the inning number. For
example, in the second inning, two single 2's and a double 2 are scored;
that players score would be four for that inning.
Usually a running total is kept with the current inning's score being
added to the current total. This way, players can see how far ahead
or behind they are and saves a lot of time not having to add all nine
innings at the end of the game.
If there is a tie at the end of the ninth inning, extra innings are
played with bullseyes as the target. Extra innings continue until after all players
have thrown for that inning and no tie exists.
One interesting twist that I like to play is the "7th inning stretch".
This variation states that any player who does not score any runs in
the seventh inning has their score cut in half. This puts a little
more pressure on the seventh inning than any other and also gives a
player who is far behind a chance to catch up.
Try to score allot of runs.
