    So I've been working on some issues with consistancy and came up with a new way to practice cricket. Basically it's like cricket count up but scored differently with the requirement that you must hit 3 darts in the wedge before moving on and count each throw as you go. My last attempt was 29 throws and counted like this:

    20 -- 1
    19 -- 1
    18 -- 3
    17 -- 6
    16 -- 4
    15 -- 1
    Bull -- 13

    Basically I hit 3 20's right off, then 3 19's but took 3 rounds before putting all darts in the 18 wedge. Next I had real trouble for some reason with the 18 and too 6 turns to get all 3 into the wedge followed by 4 to hit the 16 with all three and then one turn to hit all three into the 15 but tool 13 turns before hitting all three into the bull.

    I'm not worried so much about how many I hit (as in 7 marks etc) but rather that all 3 darts land in the target number.

    I find the stress builds once on the bull as you KNOW it's harder to stick all three darts into the bull than any other number.

    A perfect score is of course 7 turns.

    Give it a try and let me know what you can do.

    Next round I was at 15 before the bull but failed to hit 3 in the bed over the next 14 throws. I had to stop there due to work (can't just throw all day) but find this practice to be of value as it forces you to put all 3 in the bed before moving on.

    I like it. Cool

    But, as John Part would say, you can go farther! Razz

    I used to do a similar exercise (around 2005) but, after hitting three marks in every number (obviously the difference being that a triple counts even if two darts are outside the pie), then I'd go around again hitting four marks, etc.

    I'd play this all the way up to seven marks per number adjusting the bulls down by two the whole way (so, at the three mark stage I had to hit one bull, at four marks I had to hit two bulls and, at the seven mark stage, I had to hit five bulls).

    Maybe start with your game, then switch to mine after that? Wink

    Here's a potentially long practice game:

    Hit three in each cricket pie. If you miss a dart, you start over! It's up to you if you want to end with three in the bull or maybe just one, but I'm guessing that pretty soon you're throwing the 20's automatically, like a machine.

    I REALLY need to work on my accuracy hitting the pies so I may try this one.

    I realize I haven't been playing recently, but since I just joined a league team for the first time in a couple of years, I need to get back in shape. Here's the pathetic first try at your game:

    20 -- 7
    19 -- 1
    18 -- 3
    17 -- 1
    16 -- 2
    15 -- 3
    Bull -- 27(!)

    Yes it can be pretty damn frustrating when in the past it would have been "ha! Too easy!" done in 7,8 or 9 maybe....today? First time took me a LONG time...
