Darts - 501

1. Each player starts with a score of 501 and takes turns to throw 3 darts.

2. The objective is to be the first player to reduce the score to exactly zero.

3. Bullseye scores 50, the outer ring scores 25 and a dart in the double or triple ring counts double or triple the segment score. The score for each turn is calculated and deducted from the player's total.

4. The only caveat is that the last dart thrown must land in a double or the bullseye.

5. If a player reduces the score to 1 or goes below zero, the score is bust, that turn ends immediately and the score is returned to what it was at the start of that turn.

6. On the last turn, it is not necessary to throw all 3 darts - a player can win with the first of second dart of the turn.
