The dartboard may have its origins in the cross-section of a tree. An old name for a dartboard is " butt "; the word comes from the French word but , meaning "target".
The London Fives board is another variation. This has only 12 equal segments numbered 20, 5, 15, 10, 20, 5, 15, 10, 20, 5, 15, 10 with the doubles and trebles being a quarter of an inch 6.
There is a speculation that the game originated among soldiers throwing short arrows at the bottom of a cask or at the bottom of trunks of trees.
As the wood dried, cracks would develop, creating "sections". Soon, regional standards emerged and many woodworkers supplemented bar tabs by fabricating dart boards for the local pubs.
It is generally said that the standard numbering plan with a 20 on top was created in by Lancashire carpenter Brian Gamlin,  though this is disputed.
Gamlin's layout was devised to penalise inaccuracy. Although this applies to most of the board, the left-hand side near the 14 section is preferred by beginners, for its concentration of larger numbers.
Mathematically, removing the rotational symmetry by placing the "20" at the top, there are 19! Many different layouts would penalise a player more than the current setup; however, the current setup actually does the job rather efficiently.
There have been several mathematical papers published that consider the "optimal" dartboard. Initially the missiles were simply cut down arrows or crossbow bolts.
These darts were mainly imported from France and became known as French darts. This type of dart continued to be used into the s.
Modern darts have four parts: Others are designed to retract slightly on impact to lessen the chance of bouncing out. The barrels come in a variety of weights and are usually constructed from brass, silver-nickel, or a tungsten alloy.
Tungsten on the other hand, is twice as dense as brass thus a barrel of an equivalent weight could be thirty percent smaller in diameter.
The remainder is usually nickel, iron, or copper. Barrels come in 3 basic shapes: Their slenderness makes them better for grouping but because they are long, the centre of gravity is further back.
Ton shaped barrels are thin at either end but bulge in the middle. This makes them fatter than a cylindrical barrel of equivalent weight but the centre of gravity is further forward and so theoretically easier to throw.
Torpedo shaped barrels are widest at the point end and taper towards the rear. This keeps the weight as far forward as possible but like the ton, gives it a larger diameter than the cylinder.
The shafts are manufactured in various lengths and some are designed to be cut to length. Shafts are generally made from plastics, nylon polymers, or metals such as aluminium and titanium; and can be rigid or flexible.
A longer shaft will however make the dart less responsive and increase the chance of "wobbling". The primary purpose of the flight is to produce drag and thus prevent the rear of the dart overtaking the point.
Modern flights are generally made from plastic, nylon, or foil and are available in a range of shapes and sizes. The three most common shapes in order of size are the standard, the kite, and the smaller pear shape.
The less surface area, the less stability but larger flights hamper close grouping. Some manufactures have sought to solve this by making a flight long and thin but this in turn creates other problems such as changing the dart's centre of gravity.
Generally speaking a heavier dart will require a larger flight. The choice of barrel, shaft, and flight will depend a great deal on the individual player's throwing style.
For competitive purposes a dart cannot weigh more than 50g including the shaft and flight and cannot exceed a total length of mm.
This is considered eye-level for a six-foot man. The standard dartboard is divided into 20 numbered sections, scoring from 1 to 20 points, by wires running from the small central circle to the outer circular wire.
Circular wires within the outer wire subdivide each section into single, double and triple areas. The dartboard featured on the "Indoor League" television show of the s did not feature a triple section, and according to host Fred Trueman during the first episode, this is the traditional Yorkshire board.
Various games can be played and still are played informally using the standard dartboard. However, in the official game, any dart landing inside the outer wire scores as follows:.
The highest score possible with three darts is , commonly known as a "ton 80" points is called a ton , obtained when all three darts land in the triple In the televised game, the referee frequently announces a score of in exuberant style.
A "quad" ring appeared briefly between the triple ring and the bull in the s, leading to a potential maximum three quads , a maximum checkout QQBull and seven dart finishes from a start five quads, triple, bullseye , but was swiftly dropped from professional tournament play after only two years.
Assuming standard scoring, the optimal area to aim for on the dart board in order to maximize the player's score varies significantly based on the players skill.
The skilled player should aim for the centre of the T20 and as the player's skill decreases, their aim moves slightly up and to the left of the T List of darts players.
There are many games that can be played on a dartboard, but the term "darts" generally refers to a game in which one player at a time throws three darts per visit to the board.
The most common objective is to reduce a fixed score, commonly or , to zero "checking out". The final dart must land in either the bullseye or a double segment in order to win.
A game of darts is generally contested between two players, who take turns. Each turn consists of throwing three darts.
When two teams play, the starting score is sometimes increased to or even ; the rules remain the same.
A throw that reduces a player's score below zero, to exactly one, or to zero but not ending with a double is known as "going bust", with the player's score being reset to the value prior to starting the turn, and the remainder of the turn being forfeited.
In some variants called a "northern bust" in London only the dart that causes the bust is not counted. That is felt by some to be a purer version of the game, as under the normal rules, as explained above, a player left with a difficult finish, e.
For example, a player with 20 at the start of their go could miss the double 10 and get a single, miss the double 5 and get a single, leaving them 5 and only one dart remaining.
Their best option is to deliberately bust it to get back onto double Under the "northern bust" they would remain on 5. A darts match is played over a fixed number of games, known as legs.
A match may be divided into sets, with each set being contested as over a fixed number of legs. Although playing straight down from is standard in darts, sometimes a double must be hit to begin scoring, known as "doubling in", with all darts thrown before hitting a double not being counted.
The minimum number of thrown darts required to complete a leg of is nine. The most common nine dart finish consists of two maximums followed by a checkout TTD12 , but there are many other possible ways of achieving the feat.
Three s TTBull is considered a pure or perfect nine dart finish by some players. This game uses the standard 20 number dartboard with the triple and double rings.
In Dutch it's called "Van 20 naar 1". The goal of 20 to 1 is to be the first player or team to throw all numbers in consecutive order from 20 to 1 and win the game with outer or inner bullseye.
In a one on one battle the winner is the person to reach the last number or bullseye. In a team competition the winner is the first team to reach the last number or bullseye after the round is complete or each member of each team has thrown that specific round.

Among small cars, there are plenty of good options on the market, as automakers have responded to stringent crash test expectations from the government and private organizations.
In our most recent small sedan tests, we reported on the class' progress in overtaking midsize sedans to become the best-selling car segment, opining that perhaps this signaled a convergence in North American and European tastes.
