Was that 11 darts by MvG there?

Am I right in thinking that T20 finishes it as you skip 25 and Bull?

To be honest, I have no idea. Seems like that would work?

20 not skipping the bulls

18 darts. Finished with bull but did skip the 25 as I threw a T18 before, not sure if that's right?

Think you may have skipped ahead one too many.  In the video MvG hits T1 and moves on 3 to 4's i.e. he skips 2 and 3.  If you hit T18 you should move ahead 3 to 25 i.e. skip 19 and 20.

As Banz said, you skipped one too many. Back to the drawing board Tongue

Treble 18 - skip to 25 but still must hit bull

Treble 19 - skip right to bullseye (double bull for American's lol)

Treble 20 - Here's where I'm torn. I was talking with a friend last night about this. If you hit the treble 20 you can't skip ahead 3. It makes sense to reward someone for hitting the treble 20 and end the game there. But they're avoiding the hardest part of the challenge by skipping the bull. Imo you should have to hit the bullseye (DB) to end the game. I'm totally open for suggestions so we can all be on the same page.

Imo I think you should only skip until the 20 wedge and use that as a set up for 25 then bull.

Oops fail! Lol You two are right, I actually did it this way throughout the numbers (eg. T3 go to 6). I will try again later today when I get home.

Having to finish on the bullseye definitely makes it a lot harder.

I sort of  :s agree with you regarding the T20 in theory...BUT MVG was definitely trying to hit the T20 why?

Its also somewhat logical to be able to finish the game if you hit T20 too as you skip past the 25 & Bull.... game over Tongue

29 for me. Chugged away in the low numbers, then flew through the higher ones only to stall again on the bull and spent more time on that than my dinner.
