Darts is a competitive game of skill where players throw small missiles (darts) at a circular board (dartboard) attached to a wall. The sport of darts has many types of games, but the title darts has come to be a general term for any variant played with three darts part round. Players take turns throwing darts at the dartboard while standing with their feet beyond the throwing edge, known as the oche.
While the rules for scoring varies per game type, points are typically defined by the twenty numbered sections on the dartboard and the bullseye at the center. The game of darts can be played competitively at the professional level, but it has also become popular as a casual sport enjoyed at bars, pubs, and in game rooms at home.
