In darts, the bullseye is worth 50 points. The bullseye consists of two sections, the outer bull, worth 25 points, and the inner bull, worth 50 points. Therefore, hitting the smallest, innermost circle, or ‘true’ bullseye, gives you the highest possible score from a single dart throw.
1. How many sections does a standard dartboard have?
A standard dartboard is divided into 20 numbered sections, scoring from 1 to 20 points.
2. What’s the distance from the ground to a dartboard?
The standard height of a dartboard from the ground to the center of the bullseye should be 5 feet 8 inches or 1.73 meters.
3. What is the outer ring on a dartboard worth?
The outer ring, or the double ring, is worth twice the number of that section. So, for example, if you hit the outer ring in the 20 section, you score 40 points.
4. What is the inner ring on a dartboard worth?
The inner ring, or triple ring, is worth three times the number of that section. So, hitting the inner ring in the 20 section scores you 60 points, the highest possible point from a dart throw excluding the bullseye.
5. What is a ‘perfect game’ or ‘nine-darter’ in darts?
A ‘perfect game’ or ‘nine-darter’ in darts is when a player uses only nine darts to complete a single leg (or round), starting from 501 points and ending exactly at zero. This is the fewest possible darts one can use to do so, hence it’s considered the ‘holy grail’ of darts.
