Since Medieval England, the game of darts has been used for many different reasons. From combat training to pub games, darts have been a part of people's lives for years. With numbers being added to the dart board in 1896, a score keeping method was devised.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Piece of paper for score keeping or a dry erase board
  • Any colour pen or marker (for dry erase board)

  1. 1

    Write your name and your opponent's name at the top of the board, leaving space for a downward column to the left of the first name.

  2. 2

    Draw a line directly under the names.

  3. 3

    Draw a line straight down between the two names. The line should reach to the bottom of the paper/dry erase board.

  4. 4

    Draw a line from the top of the scoreboard to the bottom, starting directly to the left of the first name and going straight down.

  5. 5

    Going downwards (in the column created by the far left line) list the numbers 14-20, followed by a "B" for "bullseye."

  6. 6

    Draw lines going from the left of the board to the right side separating each of the numbers and the "B."

  7. 7

    Play your darts game, marking each time you hit one of the numbers on the scoreboard.

Tips and warnings

  • If playing a game other than "Three's Company," you can mark down whichever numbers you wish, or even mark them all down on the board.
