How to Score Darts

Your dartboard is divided into 20 numbered sections, which score from 1 to 20 points. Circular wires within the outer wire subdivide each section into single, double and triple areas.

Any dart landing inside the outer wire scores as follows:

The highest score possible with three darts is 180 (scored when all three darts land in the triple 20).

Dartboard and Oche Set Up

The dartboard should be hung so that the bullseye is 5 feet 8 inches (172.72 cm) from the floor, eye-level for a 6-foot (180 cm) person.

The oche (the line behind which the throwing player must stand) is generally 7 feet 9 ¼ inches (236.86 cm) from the face of the dartboard measured horizontally.
