    Reading about Larry's routine, and the "difficulty" level brought something else to mind. Yes Larry's routine was tough, and requires skill to get through, and is very good mechanical practice. the problem is there is no pressure element.

    Here is the challenge.

    Go round the board on doubles from 1 to 20 and then DB.

    "John, that's easy! Even BlackHorse could do that." you say?

    Oh yeah, here's the catch. You must get at least one double with every three dart turn, or it's back to D1. No bonus for 2 or 3 doubles in a turn, except for being that much closer to the end.

    You good players are going to really feel some pressure!

    Before you all start crying, yes I have done this many times, and failed many more.

    Post your scores as the last double you successfully hit before crapping out. There may be a prize for the first one to report doing it.

    [Edit - Felt the need to make this a sticky so people can find it.]

    Next try got to double seven...but I have a question.

    I hit d1 d2 d3 each with one dart, then d4, d5 (two darts), then d6 took two darts, missed d7 with all freakin' three, which took me back to d1. Am I doing this right?

    You're just going around the clock/board on doubles. If you have one turn/3 darts with no progress, you're back to square one.

    Yes, that is right, if you are using all your darts. If you hit D1 with your first dart, go for D2 with your second dart. If you miss no big deal as you've already made progress with that 3 dart turn. You can get 3 doubles in one turn, but you're still faced with defeat if you fail to get a double in your next turn. That's what I mean by no bonus.

    John, to see if I understand this right, and using your last example, if I hit D1 with the first dart, miss D2 with the second and third darts, after retrieving all 3 darts, do I then have only one dart left to throw at D2 before I lose, or do I have all 3 darts of the second throw to throw at it, as I had already scored a double with my first three darts, that being D1?

    Very Happy John.

    But, no, I would have to hit a really lucky streak to finish that one. Not too likely for me, I'm afraid.

    I love that you are getting questions on how to play it, that is just fantastically ironic. Very Happy

    And ( reverting to a four year old ), my version is actually more realistic and better so nyah nyah, neener, neener. Razz Razz Razz

    The latter.

    The axe falls if you miss three darts in one turn. A turn being one trip to the oche. No cheating using two sets DT.

    I'm with you, BH. It'll probably take me a couple of years before I'm good enough to complete the challenge, but I'm going to pound away at it, nonetheless (insert sexual inuendo here). I've only been playing darts for just over 2 years, after all.

    I'm sure someone like Double Trouble, Tae, CraigB, or Erik will walk off with this one before I get there.

    Back to the board.

    The thought never would have occured to me to bring more than one set of darts to the shooting match John, but I can see from your post, that concept had found fertile ground at some earlier time in your mind. I can somehow invision a younger John Part swaggering up to the ochre with a bandolier full of darts to take his first throw at this game. Laughing

John's is world class championship darts, such as it is, and mine is, well, mine, er, I can really, uhm, you know, well that's not the point here, the point is making up games, and mine is better cuz at least dweebs like me can finish it! Doesn't discourage you, that's the ticket!

    I hear ya, string. I'm usually either too drunk in the back of an RV with a cheerleading squad or recovering from the day after being drunk in the back of an RV with a cheerleading squad to post that much.

    Hunter

    One thing's for sure, though. I'm sure as S#!T never going to be able to clear all of the doubles before I shoot myself for being such an utter freakin' FAILURE at darts! John....you're Satan incarnate....but I mean that in a good way....wait..no I don't.
