When you get to a pool table, your options are pretty limited. Sure, you could play Subbuteo on it or jump up on the thing and pretend to surf, but it’d be pretty frowned upon. No, your choices are generally a game of 8-ball pool with a pal or  game of doubles. You could play […]

We’ve already told you how you’d go about playing Killer Pool. And while it might be similar in name, the rules of that and what we’re talking about here, Killer Darts, are a whole lot different. And not just because one game happens on a pool table and the other on a dart board. It’s […]

Darts. It’s many things to many people. To most of us it’s a decent pub or club sport that kills a bit of time when we’re out enjoying a few bevvies. To others, it’s a ridiculous game for boozy blokes with beer bellies. And to a small minority of people, it’s a full-on lifestyle. You’ve […]
