In today's blog post we will look at the classics of steel darts . In addition to many great dart games with which you can spend the evening in front of the dartboard with friends, classic dart games are mostly used.
We're talking about the X01 games , such as 501 Darts . We will specifically look at the rules of the classics and explain a few variations on how these games can be modified as desired .
Whether 501, 701 or even 1001, there are no limits to your imagination.
Darts in its original form - 501 darts
In general, most of you will know the game by 501. The reason is simple, because in all known TV tournaments, a leg is reduced to 0 points in mode 501.
Every dart fan knows what to do with this number. That's why it is considered the most classic game that can be played on a steel dartboard . But for beginners we would like to explain again how exactly such a dart game actually works.
The classic dart games explanation
The Dart 501 rules briefly explained: In a classic 501 dart game , two players compete against each other . The goal is to get the 501 points down to zero – and to do so as quickly as possible.
The game can be broken down so easily. And from this point onwards the variations begin , which are used by many hobby players to adapt the game and the rules to their own needs .
It is very important to know that the goal of landing on exactly zero points requires or requires a certain level of skill. A game cannot be won by blindly throwing at the disc in the hope of eventually landing on zero points, because if a player has 15 points remaining and hits 17, this is considered to have been thrown.
These are dart rules that cannot be changed, but things are different with different variants of the game form X01.
301, 501, 701 or 1001?
Except for the basic rules just mentioned, the format of the game can be changed as desired. The variants with 301, 501, 701 and 1001 points have become established in the dart scene in recent years .
The procedure is always completely the same, regardless of the version. Because the goal is to end up with exactly zero points .
The starting number is often adjusted to the level of the players. It is common for beginners to start with 301 points, while world-class players like to use the 1001 variant, especially in training .
