e-Darts: What is it?

23rd May, 2022

One of the most popular battle games in The Arena bar is electronic darts. There’s a bristle dartboard and steel tip darts, but that is where the similarities between the traditional and electronic versions of the game ends. If you think it’s just a case of throwing some darts at a board, you are so wrong. So, join us on the oche (that’s the name of the throw line in traditional darts) and let’s do a deep dive into what exactly electronic darts is.

Games, games and more games

You can use the electronic dartboard in the traditional way – a quick game of round the clock, or maybe 501, anyone? But there’s no chalk or mind maths needed, as the scores will be automatically calculated and digitally displayed, like they are when you play ten pin bowling.

However, with e-Darts there is so much more that takes a game of arrows to the next level. Fancy a game of cricket on a dartboard? You can, as well as get competitive with multiple other game options, such as Battleships, Snakes and Ladders, Dart Bingo – we could keep going.

Really easy to play

If you’ve never played darts before, don’t worry, the screen above the electronic dartboard will guide you through setting up a game, give you prompts about how to play specific games, and announce and display scores. You simply need to be able to throw a sharp pointed object at a board to be able to play – your aim will get better as the game progresses.

It’s certainly a high-energy game that we guarantee will have you hooked.
