Dart Rules for '01 Games 

Number of Players: Any number of players may play, but normally two individuals or two teams play.

Numbers in Play: All the numbers are in play, but some receive greater use than others.  The 19 and 20, for instance are used extensively for scoring points since they are the highest numbers on the board.  All the numbers may be used to throw the necessary doubles in the game.

This game is generally played by two people but can be played by teams. Each player starts with 301 points. The goal for each player is to reach zero, excatly, by subtracting the amount they score in a turn from the amount they had left from the previous turn.

Dart Rules for the game of Killer

Number of Players:
Any number can play, but Killer is most fun with three or more players.

Numbers in Play: The numbers used are determined by the players.  Each player throws one dart with the "opposite" hand.  (e.g., right-handers throw left-handed) to determine randomly his or her own number.  If a player misses the board or hits a number already taken, he or she throws again.

Rules of the Game:  Each player first tries to hit the double of his or her own number.  When this is acheived, the player is known as a "killer" and a K is placed after his name on the scoreboard.
