Cosmo's 27

So we've all heard of Bob's 27 but what about this? Here's my take on a forum challenge! How I came up with it I'll never know but I think it sounds fun.

The game is somewhat based on the Bermuda Triangle game, but I've shortened it and changed the rules on misses and free rounds, so here are the (new) rules.

You get 27 darts (hence Kosumo's 27) at 9 different targets (3 darts a target). Here's the playing order:

3 darts at 15s

3 darts at 16s

Free turn (3 darts at whatever number you like)

3 darts at 17s

3 darts at 18s

Free turn (3 darts at whatever number you like)

3 darts at 19s

3 darts at 20s

3 darts at 25/bull

Each single scores you the value of the target you hit - so a single 15 is 15, T20 is 60. The maximum possible score then is 1455 (3 trebles in the first 8 rounds, 3 bullseyes in the last round, both free rounds are on 20s). Of course not choosing 20s in the free rounds reduces your maximum total score, but one must be strategic - better to score 137 on 19s than 100 on 20s.

Miss with all three in any round and you get the disdain of knowing you didn't score anything, and then you lose a quarter of your score! If your score becomes decimal because of this, the rule is that you always round up (ie. 12.5 becomes 13, 727.75 becomes 728, 177.1 becomes 178).

This game then is a little more forgiving than Bermuda Triangle, and it gives you more of a chance to score in your free rounds. So if you don't fancy a full on game of BT, this is the next best thing!

Like the game it's based on this is open to steel and soft tippers, with separate leaderboards for each- so if you are playing on a softip board, please make sure you denote this before you post your score!

And that's it. So good luck, and happy darting!
