mini review Kokoi Darts scoreboard
So I have been using a Kokoi Darts scoreboard https://kokoidarts.com/ for a few years now and want to share some of my pros and cons of this scoreboard that I have seen.

First a few pictures of my scoreboard.

How it works. When you score or mark in your game you spin the little white handles sticking out all over to represent your score or marks.

The dimensions according to the vendor website are:
23.5" x 10" x 1.75". (59.5 cm x 25.3 cm x 4.3 cm)
5 lbs. 10 oz (net) or 2.55 kg

The board is nice because you don't have to use anything on it. No chalk, no markers, no batteries. And that was the big selling point for me.

It has 4 x01 score sections and number 20-10 T D B listed for cricket. Giving some options of what you play.

Its been several years sine I hung this up and I didn't take any notes or pictures at the time but I believe it came with the mounting hardware I needed. It is hung from a keyhole slot in the back and a screw in the wall.

It also came with some spare parts.

Another nice thing about the setup is a lifetime warranty.

The score numbers in gold are very easy to see from the oche and so are the cricket marks.

A few downsides to the setup.

The 01 scores are a little hard to see at an angle. Even where I have it mounted I have the lean over to read the scores as the wooded box is just thick enough to block my view. Mounting it in a different spot closer to the board may fix this but I didn't want it to low and directly under the board or right next to the surround.

Your kind of limited to only playing the games on the board. Which is 01, cricket, and killer. If you want to play something else and keep score you have to do it some other way. You are also limited on the numbers of players. If you have big parties where people would throw some darts your stuck using teams of 2 for cricket or 4 max for 01.

There were no directions on how to play the games included with the scoreboard. Not a big deal but when I got this I had no idea what killer was or how to play it. I had to run over to the internet to learn.

Tight sections. Some of the white wheels are very tight when you spin them. A bur or other imperfection in the wood snags together when spinning the scores on some of the numbers. It to be expected as its wood and natural swelling and shrinking will happen. I guess that's why it came with some extra wheels to swap out. I have also found that just by using it the burs get knocked down. They create enough friction to polish the two surfaces and they spin easier. The standard cricket numbers all spin nicely now. Some of the other numbers still have spots that stick. I'm sure if I used those numbers more it would be corrected in short order.

The bottom line, would I buy it again knowing what I know now? Yes. I don't have chalk dust all over my dart room, I don't have to worry about markers getting left open and drying out, I don't have batteries in the electronic scorers, and I normally practice solo or on pro-darter so the limited game options don't bother me to much and I can always use a pen and paper if I do want to score a different game.

That's great! I seen those before and think they look cool, I would want it just because it looks interesting even though I don't play cricket Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I have some cardboard behind my board to help with vibrating. And didn't trim it prefect flush with the surround

I like the Style if this contraption. Very pleasing to the eye. Looks as though it belongs next to Board in a Gentlemen's Club.

I have the very same Kokoi scoreboard and it's one of my favorite dart accessories purchases. It's too bad that Kokoi is no longer making these as I'm pretty sure they are no longer in business. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
