Around the Clock is an exciting, easy-to-understand variation of the game of Darts. The game is started by choosing who goes first; this can be done through a simple coin toss or by throwing a dart closest to the bullseye. Here are the official rules to follow for the game:

1. Players throw three darts each per turn beginning from the ‘1’ section on the dartboard.
2. The main objective of each player is to hit all numbers in sequence from 1 to 20.
3. They must hit the numbers in order, meaning that after hitting ‘1’, the next target is ‘2’, followed by ‘3’, and so on, until ’20’.
4. Once a number is hit, a player moves to the next number in the sequence.
5. If a player misses a number, the player will have to try to hit it again on their next turn.
6. The game ends when a player hits all numbers in sequence including the ’20’.
7. The first player to go through numbers 1 to 20 in order and hit all accurately is considered the winner.
