Full Answer

To begin a game, each player tosses a dart. Whoever is closest to the bullseye goes first. During each turn, a player stands behind the toeline and throws three darts, one at a time, at the board. Each wedge of the dartboard is assigned a specific point value, and darts that land within a wedge receive the designated points. The value of darts in the outer ring doubles, while those in the middle ring triple the score. The small center ring is 25 points, while the bullseye is worth 50. Darts that do not stick to the board or that miss completely earn no points.
