This version of the game is more commonly known as Stick Arrows in the town of Poole and other parts of the South West of England. Tactics is the UK version of Cricket,  and is almost the same as described above in Gameplay.
However, Tactics, in addition to 20 through 15 and the bull's-eye, also uses Doubles and Triples as separate scoring objectives. Three of each number along with three bulls, three doubles, and three triples are required to complete the game.
In addition the first player to close all objectives must have a tied score or better to win. There are two ways of playing Tactics, 'slop' and 'strict'. The major tactical difference in game play between Tactics and Cricket is the introduction of Triples and Doubles as objectives.
If 20 has been closed by only one player and that player hits the triple 20, they have the option of taking the 60 points, or applying this as one of their three required 'triple' hits. Other versions played in Canada and in the USA are similar to the above but using the numbers 20 down through 13 and 20 through 12 respectively. An alternate version of the game is played in Newfoundland, Canada , hence the name Newfie. This version is similar to the English variation called Faldo, in New Zealand this game is known as Shanghai.
Along with each player needing to close 20 through 15, and the bull's-eye, it is required to hit three triples and three doubles. For the triples and doubles it doesn't matter where they land, as long as they are on the ring. Hence, a triple 10 would count as 30 points if the player had already thrown three other triples to close them.
In some cases in addition to doubles, triples and bulls, beds must also be closed. A bed is when all three darts from a single turn land in the same number. This version of cricket is also referred to as "Piggy" or "Marty Mouse.
This variation of the game is played especially in north-west England. Closest to the bullseye goes first and is the batting team. The object of the batting team is to score as many 'runs' as possible i. The 'bowling' team has to hit doubles, trebles or bullseyes to score a wicket; a double being 1 wicket, a treble being 2 wickets and a bullseye being 3 wickets, 3 throws being your 'bowl'.
When the bowling team reaches 10 wickets, as is with cricket, the sides change and the game continues. The winning team is the team who scores the most runs before having lost all 10 wickets. A variation of this game is played in the West Riding of Yorkshire when the first to "bat" is decided by the first player to hit a double.
The "batsman" has either 3 or 5 "wickets". The "bowler", in order to take a "wicket", must throw a double s. The "batsman" must score over a previously agreed number commonly 20 or 30 to score "runs". Only the excess of the agreed score counts as "runs" e. If he only scores 30 he would have no runs.
The aim is to score as many as possible before all the "wickets" are lost. At this point, the players change roles and the winner is the one with most "runs".
Doubles, trebles, bulls and outer bulls score as normal. A more recent version of darts cricket, to take into account the rise of the Twenty20 form of the game, has been developed in Nottingham.
The 'batting side' has 7 sets of 3 darts to score as many 'runs' as they can. The first 2 sets of darts are the 'powerplays' and count the full score, the following 5 sets of darts score half points, rounded up.
The 'bowler' has 6 sets of darts to take the ten wickets to bowl the batting side out. Wickets are taken by scoring either outer bull 2 Wickets or bullseye 4 wickets. The beauty of the game is that once a player loses four wickets, they must throw one of their three darts with their non darts hand, losing six wickets means 2 darts with weak hand, and when 8 wickets are down all three must be thrown with the weak arm.
This creates a real tension in run chases and can make for unbelievably tense finishes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This section's factual accuracy is disputed. Relevant discussion may be found on Talk: Please help to ensure that disputed statements are reliably sourced.
