Dart Games - Nine Lives

Nine Lives

Nine Lives - Easy game for all abilities

Players: Two Players or More

Darts: Three each

Rules:

This is a simple game of elimination for any number of players. It does get a little long when there are a lot of players.

The Object:

To be the first player to get "around the clock", that is to get at least one dart in each number from 1 through 20 in order.

The Scoring:

Each player throws one dart at bullseye, closest to the bulls eye goes first, furthest from the bulls eye goes last. Each player gets three "lives" represented by three tally marks below their name. I don't know why the game is called 9 lives but you only get 3. Maybe it is because if you miss with three darts you lose a life and 3 x 3 = 9! If you know any different please let me know.

The player’s names are recorded on a chalk board or white board along with three X’s (XXX). Each player then takes a turn trying to hit each number from 1 through 20. The numbers must be hit in order or they do not count.

If a player misses with all three darts, one life is lost and an X removed from that player. When all three of a players lives are lost, that player is out of the game.

Dart games you can play on a standard (London Clock) dartboard

Darts is a sport enjoyed by all regardless of age or gender. People play for fun while others take this sport very seriously. The ’01 game is the most common followed by ‘Cricket’ I call it American Cricket because it has no refence to wickets, bats, balls or runs. Shanghai probably rate third as most commonly played dart games around the world. However, there a lot of games for you to enjoy. Some are designed for the not so skilled while others do require a lot of skill to play well. A larger list of games and rules is availble on the main Darts501.com website

Games that feature on this website

Some of the games that feature on this website have been designed purely for inclusion solely on my websites. I have created most of the other games, and credit is given if others, i.e. tennis, have supplied the game.  Some of the games have been played as far back as the early 1900s. However, you may find some regional variations to the rules I have published.

Designed for my websites: 180 Around the Clock, Chase the Dragon, Grand National, plus Tennis supplied by Richard Cotterill and Keith Block. Please do not reproduce these games on your own website. If you like the games, I feature then, by all means, place a link to this page.

Should you supply a game for inclusion, and if it is accepted, a credit will be given to you as per the game tennis.
