RULES (adapted in part from WAMO State Tournament)
The following rules are set as a guideline to help the captains solve a problem when a disagreement arises. Common sense and good sportsmanship are to be used to cover any questions that may arise during a match and not covered explicitly in these rules. These are general rules which cover the four player team event.
Team game 301 (doubles-one player per score) straight out -6 games.
All players start with 301 points and attempt to reach 0.
When any player reaches "0", the game is over. The winning team is the team with the lowest combined score (both team members). If your partner’s score is higher than the other team’s combined score, you are “frozen” and cannot go out. If the game ends in a tie, the team that reaches "0" wins. You may got out on a tie
Players stand on a throw line, 96" horizontally from the face of the board. It is legal to lean over the line. Players may step on but not across the line.
Each player throws a maximum of three darts per round, it is not required that a player throw all three darts on every turn.
Team game of 501 for the 13 th game.
For the 13 th game, all players play on 4 scores of 501 (2 players per score).Players can be rotated before this game begins.
The score recorded by the machine is the score the player receives. The player accepts that "the dart machine is always right." The only exception will be on a "last dart" or "winning dart." Example: a player needs 39 to go out. He shoots and the dart sticks in the triple 13, but the machine fails to score or scores incorrectly. If the dart sticks, the machine was displaying the "throw darts" message, and all other rules were followed, the player/team shall be credited with a win in that game. This rule will apply only on a single dart, not for a combination of darts.
A dart that sticks in the board but does not activate the electronic scoring may not be manually scored.
If a dart bounces off the board, it is considered a dart thrown even if it does not score. It may not be thrown again.
If a dart is thrown before the "throw darts" message lights, the dart is considered a dart thrown and may not be thrown again.
If machine displays a "segment stuck" the player must remove the stuck dart before continuing.
