Broken: Plastic dart board

This thing is quite frustrating. The darts do go in... occasionally. The design needs some work, I think.

OK, I can put it in the recycling bag now.


We had a similar dart board that had electronic scoring sensors. Occasionally the cheap plastic darts would flip over in the air, hit the board with the flights and change the score. It didn't take us long to switch to a real board and darts - we did keep the electronic board for easy scoring though.

In college we called this style of dartboard Quantum Darts.

I've found all the less traditional dart boards - magnet, velcro, etc - never work as well as the original.

Although I can understand that giving small children darts that can kill people may have less appeal to some people.

I had a dart board like that once, It didn't matter if the dart didn't stick in, if the piece of plastic was pushed in it would count it, also it wouldn't let you change the score within 2 seconds of the first throw so a bounce didn't matter

On our electronic dart board when you throw a dart it doesn't register the throw. Anyone know how to fix it?
