If you’ve never played Bermuda Triangle darts, we urge you to give it a go today. Otherwise known as ‘halve it’, it’s a game that will test the nerve of even the most experienced darts players.
As we’ll see in this guide, the tension builds with every throw and only the bravest will maintain their high score.
You better not miss the target with all three of your darts…or else risk your score getting cut in half. This game is a brilliant way to play under pressure, even when you’re playing alone!
How to Play Bermuda Triangle Darts
What Type of Dartboard and Darts Do I Need?
In truth, Bermuda Triangle can be played with any type of dartboard as long as it has the usual 1-20 as well as an inner and outer bullseye. Whether you have an electric, bristle, wooden, coiled paper, or even a magnetic dart board, this is something you can play!
Rules for Playing
In the Bermuda Triangle, there will be a total of 13 rounds where you will throw at the Bermuda Triangle playing dartboard;
- Double of Your Choice
- Double of Your Choice
In each round, you’ll throw at the targets written above. For example, you could either go for a single ’12’, a double ’12’, or a treble ’12’. With the aim of getting the highest score possible, the better players should be aiming for the ‘treble’ bed. For example, three treble ’12’ darts would score 108 points from the first round alone. After ’12’, you’ll continue your way down the list and attempt to hit the targets and score a record-breaking score.
Easy, right? Well, although we wish it were that easy, there’s a problem. If you miss the target with ALL THREE of your darts in any round, you’ll need to halve your score. For example, if you’ve hit every single target and reached the bullseye, you’ll NEED to hit one otherwise all the work you’ve put in will be for nothing and your score will be cut in half. If you were wondering why we said this game is tense…now you see why.
Scoring Bermuda Triangle Darts
As mentioned previously, you’re welcome to hit any of the three beds for ’12’ all the way through to ’20’. Where it says ‘Double of Your Choice’, you simply add on any doubles hit (don’t forget, you’ll need to choose wisely because three misses on a double will halve your score!).
For clarification, on the ’25’ round, a bullseye will count as ’25’. Unfortunately, a ’25’ doesn’t count as a bullseye in the next round so you’ll have to be super accurate!
Key to Winning
In the beginning, we recommend playing it simple and not being a hero. At first, aim for the larger sections of the target (don’t feel as though you need to hit the treble every time because this is a smaller target). As you get better, then you can hit the trebles and log better scores.
What a fantastic game of darts, right? Only the best will hold their nerve and avoid having their scores; are you up to the challenge? For budding darts players, this is a great way to play because your scores will get higher and higher as you become a more accurate player!
