Noughts and Crosses

Rules for Noughts and Crosses. All the games can be download in PDF format see the icon at the bottom of this page

Players: Can be played with 2 or teams

Darts: Three each


Draw a noughts and crosses board of nine spaces, three by three on a scoreboard or piece of paper.  In the middle square write Bulls Eye and in the other eight squares write different one dart scoring numbers i.e. Treble 9, small fourteen (the small single scoring segment of fourteen) , double two etc (see example below).

Treble 9 Small Thirteen Treble 5
Double 1 Bulls Eye Small 17
Large 6 Treble 7 Double 2

The aim is for one player or team to complete a straight line of three. Every time a target is score is hit then then the initials / team name or X / O is placed in the scoring square replacing the figures. As with normal noughts and crosses players aim to hinder their opponents to prevent them getting three in a row.

Treble 9 Small Thirteen   X Treble 5    O
Double 1    X Bulls Eye   X Small 17   O
Large 6 Treble 7 Double 2    O

The game can be made easier by using single numbers in eight or all nine squares.
