What are the top 3 things players new to the game want to know?
Going through the many threads in the Beginners section, struck me might be useful to understand the most common things players new to the game want to know.  Or should know.Tongue  To keep things manageable, let's restrict it to 3 per post for now.

So Nutz, what do you think?  If you're new the game, or an old pro, let's hear from you!

cheers...

I guess...

Why the pattern of the numbers: 20-1-18-4-13-6-10-15-2-17-3-19-7-16-8-11-14-9-12-5
- (Is it really true that this number sequence were Queen Victoria's Phlogiston Weapon codes the Royal Navy had back in the 19th century and infamously used by HMS Bacchante in August 1883 in the Dutch East Indies and covered up as just a volcanic eruption.)

lol - I can see where this is going.  Maybe because my return to Nutz-dom is a little more recent, I'll give it a stab.
  1. Do I need my own board?  YES!
  2. What darts to buy?  Get the right shape for your grip and throw.  Weight not as critical, but 24g is a good place to start for a new player in steel tip.  See this post.
  3. What kind of stems / shafts?  Start with nylon, and get a selection of sizes - medium, intermediate, and short.  Starting out, use simple spring rings to secure your flights.  Later, you can fine tune your preferences and try other setups.  Understand stems and flights are consumables.
Read, read, and read some more!

Like already mentioned,

1. "Dart Etiquette" Standing in your opponents line of sight, talking while they are throwing, etc.
2. How to score properly if called upon to do so. Sipping from your beer, puffing on cigarettes, dancing to the music are not good.
3. Have a decent knowledge how each game is played and what your goals are besides "I hope I win".
