Last night we invented a darts game. It’s called “12 dozen.” Basically each person playing has to hit a 12 every round, or else they’re out.
It’s extremely exciting and far more dramatic than you would expect. With each throw those watching shout in disbelief or awe. Yesterday at the end of each game there was excitment to the point of ridiculousness. At one point Jesse was running around humping movie posters.
You have three darts, the first throw is the pitch, the second: the toss, the third: the dagger. If you hit a triple 12, or land all three of your darts in the 12, you have immunity for the next round (two triple 12’s give you two rounds of immunity, three triple 12 you get an insta-win). If you hit two double 12’s in the same turn, you only need two darts in the 12 from that point on to score immunity for the next round. If you don’t hit any 12’s with any of these throws, you’re out (provided you don’t have immunity). And, finally, if you hit two darts in the twelve and then proceed to hit a bullseye, you clench the ‘insta-win’.
Yes, 12 Dozen is a darts game for champions.
