    Here's a place to ask for or supply information about terminology and abbreviations in the game of darts.

    PPD is points per dart average. The average score for one dart. Often tripled and reported as a 3 dart average. These averages include all darts thrown in a leg of any 01 game divided into total points scored.

    "Stinky One"

    A Stinky One is a score of 62, achieved in this order: single one, single one, triple 20. It is stinky because you pulled the round out of your a**.

    Luben, those are scores for the practice games. See the thread above this one in this forum entitled "Announcement: SEWA Practice Game Rules"

    Round the World is 3 darts at every segment board
    Cricket Count Up is 3 darts at every cricket segment
    BH RTW is a Round the World game on doubles (see the above mentioned thread for further explanation as it can be kind of confusing)

    Hope that helps Smile

    "Breakfast" - A score of 26
    "Madhouse" - Getting stuck on D1
    "Tops" - D20
    "Ducks" - A score of 22
    "MPT" or "MPR" - Marks Per Turn or Marks Per Round

    (Remember, one way to tell others of your match results against General Part is to say he took second-to-last. Razz )

    People around here call 26 a "dummy score" or "bread and butter"

    No, Luben, never stupid. Just a little blind Wink


    We call 26 "chips" and I've also heard it called Navy. I'm not sure where either one comes from.

    It comes from 2 shillings and six pence in the old days in England you could get a room and breakfast for Half a Crown which was 2 shillings and six pence.

    "Popcorn" - When you follow a dart into the board so close it pops your flight off into the air.

    We call 26 "Chips" around here too.

    I thought "Feathers" meant flights.

    Perhaps a mod could consolidate these into a post near the beginning if you have time. Would make it a lot easier to find I think.

    Originally it was "Bed and Breakfast", but I haven't heard it called anything but just "breakfast" for over 20 years.

    Maybe with rising costs the "bed" part was thrown out? Razz

    A score of 26 in my home town is a "Tom Berry" cause when he started playing thats all he hit. He later went on to become an area rep.

    A bounce out is called "1 for the good guys"

    Should be "fish and chips" which was two shillings sixpence in years past.

    A wayno (named after me) is a Trip 5, Trip 20 and a Trip 1. In no particular order.
