  • In a game of 501 the object is for one player or a team to be the first to reach zero from starting total of 501.
  • In simple terms, after three darts are thrown, the throwing player subtracts the total scored from his current total until he reaches zero.
  • In order to reach zero each player must finish by throwing a double i.e. if player one has 36 remaining he must hit double 18 to win, while if player two has 45 remaining he must hit single 5, double 20 to win - or a another combination of scores provided the final dart scores on a double


Number of Players: Two individual players or two teams.
Numbers in Play: 20,19,18,17,16,15, and bull's-eye.

The objective shall be to 'own'/'close' certain numbers on the dartboard, and to achieve the highest point score. The player/team to do so first, shall be the winner.

Each player/team shall take turns throwing. (Three darts in succession shall constitute a 'turn'/'Inning'.)

To close an inning, the player/team must score three of a number. This can be accomplished with three singles, a single and a double, or a triple.

Once a player/team scores three of a number, it is 'owned' by that player/team. Once both players/teams have scored three of a number, it is 'closed', and no further scoring can be accomplished on that number by either player/team.

To close the bullseye, the outer bull counts as a single, and the inner bull counts as a double.

Once a player/team closes an inning, he/they may score points on that number until the opponent also closes that inning. All numerical scores shall be added to the previous balance.

Numbers can be 'owned' or 'closed' in any order desired by the individual player/team. Calling your shot is not required.

For the purpose of 'owning' a number, the double and triple ring shall count as 2 or 3, respectively. Three marks will close an inning.

After a number is 'owned' by a team, the double and triple ring shall count as 2 or 3 times the numerical values, respectively. Winning the game:

  • The player/team that closes all innings first and has the most points, shall be declared the winner.
  • If both sides are tied on points, or have no points, the first player/team to close all innings shall be the winner.
  • If a player/team closes all innings first, and is behind in points, he/they must continue to score on any innings not closed until either the point deficit is made up, or the opponent has closed all innings.

It shall be the responsibility of the player to verify his score before removing his darts from the dartboard. The score remains as written if one or more darts has been removed from the dartboard. In accordance with the inherent "strategy" involved in the Cricket game, no alterations in score shall be allowed, after the fact.

Games will be played by flipping a coin to call first shot a bull. player/team closest calls who goes first with alternating start for each match after.
