Date: 10th March 2016
Location: The Greyhound pub, Wivenhoe
Rules: Players take it turns to throw three darts from the Oche. Each player starts with 501 on the board and must count down to zero, finishing with throwing a double.
Sarah: I'm not sure I've ever played darts sober before; the lack of booze certainly made the maths much more difficult (possibly indicating previous scoring has been approximate rather than accurate). It was a lot of fun, but I have no idea how you're meant to aim. My throws were completely random, scattered around the board, and the prospect of being able to end on a double was laughable. But then up steps Farrow, and lands the double 12 for the win!
Ellie: Recently I've gotten into the Let's Play Darts for Sports Relief and so I was really keen to go for a game ourselves. it was a beautiful spring day and we had drinks on the table so this is a event I'd happily repeat! Sarah took a massive early lead and I definitely lucked out by hitting the double 12 considering getting the dart on target up to that point had been practically impossible!
