Perfect Score

Played 501 of dart with my co-worker yesterday. After 8 rounds I have 180 points left (yeah, I am not that good), and then the miracle happened. The first dart landed on triple 20, and then the next one landed right next to the first one, also in the triple 20, and then the third one looks like to end up on the triple 1, but then got knocked back into the triple 20 by the dart on the board. And so I have scored a perfect round of 180 for the first time in my life.

Where is the triple 20? It is that smaller piece of red under the 20, above the bullseye. (The larger piece of red right under the number 20 is the double 20, you get 40 points for hitting that)



Game rule for 501:

1. Aim of the game

Each player starts with 501 points. The number of points collected while hitting a board with a dart is subtracted from the given player's points. The winner is the player who scores exactly 0 points that way.

It is a double out game, which means that players must hit a double that makes their score exactly zero to win the game. We don't play with this rule, otherwise it would be too difficult.
2. Bust

In case of a bust the player's score from the previous turn is restored. There is bust if the following events arise:

* The player scores more points in the active turn, than his current score (subtracting would result in a negative score)

3. End of the game

Players continue playing until one of them scores 0 points in total. The player who does so, wins the game.

If none of the players gets to zero in 20 turns, the player with the lower point wins.

If the scores are equal after 20 turns, the game will continue for another possible 10 turns.

During these extra turns, the player who gets to zero obviously wins. A player with lower score any time after the 20th turn also wins the match.

If the scores are equal after 20+10 turns, the match will end in a draw.
