*This event is not sanctioned by the ADO*

Game start order is determined by a Diddle. One player from each team will represent their team in the Dibble. A coin flip will determine shooting order preference for the Dibble. (Coin flip winner may shoot first OR may defer shot to opponent) Dibble winner goes first in the first game. The losing team from the first game gets to shoot first in the second game. If needed the third game shooting a Bulls Choice will determine order. 

SCORING

Diddle 

For the “Diddle” each team representative will throw one dart with the intention of having their dart land on or closest to the bulls-eye. The most accurate throw with respect to the bulls-eye ins the winner. 

– A double bulls-eye beats a single bulls-eye or anything outside the bull 

– A single bulls-eye beats anything outside the bulls-eye but loses to a double bulls-eye

– If both darts are outside the bulls-eye, the winner will be judged as the dart closest to the bulls-eye. If both darts are in the double bulls-eye it is a tie. If both darts are in the single bulls-eye it is a tie. If both darts are measured as the same distance to the bulls-eye it is a tie.

– For ties both representatives will re-throw in REVERSE order of original “Diddle” the first shooter will now shoot second, and the second shooter will now shoot first. Continue until a winner is determined.    

Bulls Choice 

The “Bulls Choice” is a method of qualifying a team for the privilege to decide which game to play in the third game of a best 2 out of 3 match in the winners bracket or the single elimination game in the losers bracket. The two competing teams will Diddle, the winner of the Diddle will decide which game will be played. Choices are as follows: 

Women’s

– Cricket

– 301 SSDO

Mixed 

– Cricket

– 501 SSDO

Special Rules 

In the event both teams are throwing for double-1 (“doo da”) in 301 SSDO, the “No Bust” rule will apply. After the second team has reached double-1, each team will throw three more turns as usual. After that, each player will throw all three darts, ignoring any “bust” scores.
