A sport about throwing small missiles, known as darts, at a circular board, known as a dartboard, to score points by hitting specific areas randomly marked on the board. Traditionally played in pubs, it has also become a professional sport around the world. The game originally was played on a section of tree trunk using the rings as scoring targets. That is until 1896 when Brian Gamlin decided to be a wise ass and make the game more difficult by penalizing inaccuracy by introducing the standardized numbered points system we have today.
Standard dartboards are divided into 20 sections by wires running to the inner circle on the board known as the bullseye. The sections score from 1 to 20 points, but are also subdivided by wired sections which yield double and triple point areas. Hitting the large numbered sections scores the value of the section, while hitting the inner portion of the sectioned ring yields triple the points and the outer portion of the ring scoring double the points. The circle in the center of the board or the bullseye is worth 50 points, while the green ring just outside of it is worth 25 points.
