Basics about darts

How is the basic structure of dartboard in dart game?

Before the first world war in England people often made dartboards from elm tree. They soaked them overnight to smooth out the holes caused by darts. That work has become a job for the poor in England.

Later, a company called Nodor invented a new type of dart board made of clay, but the model did not work until someone came up with the idea of ​​making a dart board from sisal.

This type of fiber is really a great success, darts do not have many holes after launch and require little maintenance.

Currently these dart board are made from sisal fiber. The standard dart board is 18 inches (45cm) in diameter. There are 20 sections in a dartboard. Each part is separated by metal wire or 1 thin metal plate. They curled or printed numbers directly on the dartboard.

The original idea of ​​the dart board is very interesting, they are derived from the trunk of the tree with concentric twists. The former name of the dart launcher is “butt”, which means the bottom of the barrel, but its original name is “butte” in French meaning the target.

A carpenter in the Lancashire region named Brian Gamlin created the current layout of the 20 scoring areas in the early days of 1896.

However, there are many other points layout that have been used for many years. in different geographical locations. Gamlin’s layout penalize incorrect rates, generating random throws.

Although this applies to most boards, beginners prefer the left side (near point 14), where the focus of large numbers is. Mathematically, eliminate rotational symmetry by putting point “20 ″ at the top of the board, with score 1 9.

Various layouts will penalize points more than the current setting, however, the current setup is actually quite effective. There have been a number of published mathematical papers to review the “optimal” layout dartboard score to go to the best standard today.

Arrows of this board are made of iron with a tail made of thin foil to increase accuracy when launched. Please scroll down to learn more about product sizes, more accurate ways to launch darts and how to calculate points!
