Darts is a form of throwing game in which darts are thrown at a circular target (dartboard) fixed to a wall. Though various boards and rules have been used in the past, the term "darts" usually now refers to a standardised game involving a specific board design and set of rules. As well as being a professional competitive sport, darts is a traditional pub game, commonly played in the United Kingdom, across the Commonwealth, the Netherlands, Belgium, Republic of Ireland, the Scandinavian countries, the United States, Canada, and elsewhere.

Famous quotes containing the word darts:

    risk is full: every living thing in
    siege: the demand is life, to keep life: the small
    white blacklegged egret, how beautiful, quietly stalks and spears
    the shallows, darts to shore
    to stab—
    Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)

    As many as the shells that are on the shore, so many are
    the pains of love; the darts that wound are steeped in
    much poison.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    Rejoice with the anchovy who darts in and out of salads.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
