These throwing rules will be considered the official rules of the B.S.D.L. And are effective immediately.

A dart shall be considered thrown if it hits the dartboard, backboard or wall - which means a dropped dart, is not a thrown dart. Do not try to catch bounced out darts, they cannot be re-thrown. Rules and Etiquette:

  1. A turn consists of throwing 3 darts.
  2. The darts must stay in the board to count. A dart that falls out before completion of the turn does not count and cannot be replayed.
  3. Darts that are accidentally dropped can be picked up and thrown.
Thrown vs. Dropped Darts:

Each player's turn consists of throwing three darts and all thrown darts count. If a player raises his hand and arm in the beginning of a throwing motion toward the dart board, the dart counts. If someone is preparing to shoot and drops a dart while standing at the line, regardless of whether or not the dart falls over the line, the player is allowed to pick up the dart and throw it. If a dart's tip does not stick within the scoring area of the board for whatever reason (falling out, knocked out, missing the board) it counts as a thrown dart but does not score. A dart which sticks in the back of another also does not score.
