    A teammate of mine refers to well-played darts as "TV Darts", meaning similar to the caliber of darts seen in televised tournaments.

    To use it in a phrase, "Jamie says you were throwing some TV Darts the other night..." Smile

    Here in Rhode Island, I've heard quite a few people refer to 26 as Fish and Chips. Probably for the same reason as Bed & Breakfast.

    Double 3 - Downstairs / In the cellar

    3 in DB - HT2, Deadeye

    I read that in some pubs in the UK, if a player was left with 1 he/she could call 'Split the legs' and try one shot between the 1's in 11.

    Cool One I particularly like is "White Horse" referring to three Cricket Triples to close with no points scored.

    I call a 28 "bed and breakfast with 2 strips of bacon" and 5 fives or 5 ones a "poor man's ton".

    Interesting read this. Here in Sweden (atleast around where i've played) a 26 score is often called a "Boklöv". (Named after the Swedish ski jumper who invented the "V" technique in ski jumping).

    In my dart club, whenever someone throws a D20 when amaing for a T20 they call it a "Thomas" (named after me Very Happy ). I had a period when i surprisingly often slipped one dart up there.

    I´ve got a term I never heard before, well, to be fair it would be Boddington Pauls term:

    Canadian

    I know now what it means Wink . Do you know too?? And might be somebody can even explain why it´s called Canadian?

    one we use up here in Toronto for double one is "grannies" or grandma's house...a place that no one really wants to visit but end up there eventually!

    and they only "canadian" I know of here is a kind of pizza hut pizza!

    Taking a scientific wild ass guess here; is it another term for 24, named after the highly mediocre lager by Molson's?

    This is a pretty basic one that no one mentioned.

    When you defeat someone who failed to double in during 301 it's called a "skunk".

    My neighbor came up with this one too. When you are playing cricket and you get a single, single, single, we like to call it the "working man's triple" or "the blue collar way".

    and my team calls "HERO DARTS" any darts that are thrown at the more challenging targets and misses....going for a trip when a single will suffice ...

    There is a dart team here in the 'ol Cowtown that when they started 19 years ago they were so bad that they usually ended up shooting at the Double 1 to win.

    They took it in stride and made it their mantra and (well at least in the original league here in town) a Double One out is named a Lizzard Out.

    Check out their website.

    Bobby George and Dr. Patrick Chaplin now published a book about the English dart language which I thought quite interesting.
    Probably the American darts language has got a lot of own terms and phrases Wink but I at least can now find out what the English phrases mean.

    I've done a review you can find here:
    http://www.globaldarts.de/globalDartsEN/misc/bookssonstig.html

    One can buy the book at amazone - I am not sure about the price in US Dollar Confused but it's around 8 € which is not expensive.

    We had a term named after the former captain of our team
    When you are aiming at Trip 20 and splash a Trip 18, it's called a "Gary"!

    soryy Gary, I couldn't resist!

    A Polish 7 mark= 2trips and a single on the non-scoring number adjacent to your target number.

    The 26 in our league is simply known as "a classic"

    We have several names for scud darts that don't hit their specific targets. All named after former/current players.

    One off the board is a "Rocko"

    hit a db when aiming for a triple " Kurt Catch"

    Slop a t12 or t18 going for the t20 " a Pops dart"
