# How To Play The Darts Game Aces

The darts game Aces (also known as Ace) is **fun to play** with a friend, and the game also **help to improve your accuracy**.

**Aim / Object of the Game**: Is for any player/s to hit a specific number (determined by another player) as many times as possible and accumulate as many points as possible in each turn of throwing 3 darts . The amount of games to be played can be determined by the player/s. A good guideline is to play **3 – 5 games** where the **players determine the numbers to throw for each other**, and then both players **throw for bull**, after which the points are added to see **who is the winner**.

**The scoring works in the following manner**:

Single segments |
= | 1 Point |

Double segments |
= | 2 Points |

Treble segments |
= | 3 Points |

Single Bull |
= | 4 Points |

Double Bull |
= | 6 Points |

### Playing the Game

**Player one**: **Throws any number** on the dartboard with his/her **least accurate hand** (if you normally throw with your right hand then use your left hand or vice versa). If the player hits the **outside number ring** or throw **out of bounds**, that dart must be re-thrown. Let’s **assume player one** hits the number "**13**" with the **1st dart**, number "**20**" with the **2nd dart** and number "**6**" with the **3rd dart**. Write the numbers **13**, **20**, **6** and "**B**" (bull) down (in that order), below the **name of player two**.

**Player two**: Does the same. S/he also **throws 3 darts** at **any number/s** on the dartboard with his/her **least accurate hand**. Let’s **assume player two** hits the number "**1**" with the **1st dart**, number "**10**" with the **2nd dart** and **treble** "**3**" with the **3rd dart**. Write the numbers **1**, **10**, **3** and "**B**" down (in that order), below the **name of player one**.

**Player one**: Player one now **throws 3 darts** at number "**13**", trying to accumulate as **much score as possible**. For every **single** “**13**” hit s/he will score **1 point**, every **double** "**13**" hit **2 points**, and every **treble** (trip/le) "**13**" hit **3 points**. After 3 darts, **count the score** and **record the points scored** next to the number "**13**" below the **name of player one**.

**Player two**: Player two now **throws 3 darts** at number "**1**", trying to accumulate as **much score as possible**. For every single "**1**" hit s/he will score **1 point**, every **double** "**1**" hit **2 points**, and every **treble** (trip/le) "**1**" hit **3 points**. After 3 darts, **count the score** and **record the points scored** next to the number "**1**" below the **name of player two**.

**Player one**: Player one will now **do the same** for the other **two numbers**, (**20 and 6**) written below his name. Last but not least player one will **throw 3 darts** at the **Bull** but this time, s/he will score **4 points** for every **single bull** hit and **6 points** for every **double bull** (inner bull) hit next to the "**B**" written below his/her name.

**Player two**: Will **do the same** for the other **two numbers**, (**10 and 3**) plus the **Bull** written below his name.

After both players have thrown 3 darts at **each of their 3 numbers and the bull**,(Player one: 1, 10, 4 and Bull -and- Player two: 13, 20, 6 and Bull ), it is time to count the total points accumulated (scored) to determine who is the winner and the **player with the most points is / can be crowned as the winner**.

**Side Note:**

- You can vary the game by throwing either 4, 5 or 6 numbers each and then the bull before you count up the total points.
- A game can consist of throwing at one or two numbers and then bull, and another one or two numbers then bull. You can change it as you like, decide for yourself what is more fun at that point in time.

ENJOY!
